Yesterday's angry retort against the protests by the speaker Larijani and the resulting cries by the toadies in Majles, proved everyone's point. If you cannot tolerate debate and discussion and opposition against your position, then you are a weak willed tyrant or to coin the better term used by the protesters, a Dictator.
What was especially exciting to see, was the traditionally reserved and precise Larijani, lose it and launch himself into a tirade reminiscent of my neighbor's 9 year old daughter when told she cannot watch iCarly until she cleans up her room.
Possibly feeling the pinch of embarrassment at the previous week's congratulatory comments toward the revolution in Egypt, only to be told aside, that , "No, the rest of the world including Egypt thinks we're the same as Mubarak, not the protest movement..."
So flustered and confused by the audacity of the protests, Larijani uncharacteristically taunted and attacked the protests as of course, having been instigated from the outside, and then proceeded to blame Karroubi-Moussavi for them, and then sat quietly as he brought on his backup singers to finish the badly painted piece of pop art that goes for politics in Iran.
The backup singers crowded onto the stage like the entire cast and crew of Glee accepting yet another award, chanting "Death to Karroubi!" and "Death to Mousavi!" calling for the "Corrupt upon the Earth" and/or "Anti-Revoutionary" felony to be applied.
Unfortunately or fortunately, all of this drama proves the whole point and purpose of the protests. Neither Larijani nor the Majles' cast of Glee, have the power to call for the death of anyone in Iran. Because and as was illustrated so beautifully by their less than believable performance, ONLY Khamenei has the power to have someone executed once he declares them to be "Corrupt upon the Earth" and/or "Anti-Revoutionary".
By calling for this to be done, the Majles-Larijani Girls Choir have in effect confirmed that they really do not have any power, not even the suggestive power to pressure the "Supreme Leader of All That He Surveys" or Khamenei, to put old-school pen to paper and serve the warrants up. For the hungry consumption of the Basij and their ilk who have been consumed for the past 32 years in the painful torture test of ill-placed faith, that in fact, in spite of the daily painfully obvious repeated examples of it, the emperor in truth hath no clothes.
What is worse, is that watching all this unfold, nary a whimper or squeal has been heard from the Hillary Brigade State Department, who apparently do not actually understand how false Iranian politics is, and appear to be looking at the Iranian version of their own senate as if these monkeys are the same as their own. Possibly the fact that Iran's Majles has better looking furniture and a more awesome speaker's loft, is the cause of all this obviously impressed yet confused un-reaction.
Rest assured that all of the posturing and proselytizing is nothing more than simple prostitution by the all too willing whores of the Majles, eager to service and satisfy any bearded object that may cross their path, wearing anything remotely resembling the cloak of what hopefully has now become crystal clear is nothing more than false prophecy. And they rarely wear underwear.
Now all that remains is for the 3rd and final act, that almost always eludes us in the audience, and that is the ultimate response and final mistake to be made by Khamenei. Were he to issue the warrants of death for Karroubi/Mousavi, that indeed would solidify the claim everyone with half a brain has been making these 32 years, that Iran is nothing more than your average, every day, sleazy, dirty, corrupt, unauthorized, and illegitimate Dictatorship.
The fact that it is covered with the rose water stench of an abridged, incorrectly interpreted, and worse applied aberration of a basically, mostly OK religion like Islam, does nothing to hide the fact that in the end, a pile of steaming shit is still a pile of steaming shit, deserving of only one good flush.
