U.S. immigrant ban ‘disrespects’ Iran — is he kidding!
Sunday night’s Oscar for best foreign film went to an Iranian, Asghar Farhadi, for this film ‘The Salesman.’ Farhadi boycotted the awards out of “respect for his people.”
His people! Would that be the people who whip themselves into a frenzy with their maniacal rants of ‘Death to America’?
“I am sorry I am not with you tonight,” he had a stand-in read on his behalf. “My absence is out of respect for the people of my country and those of other six nations whom have been disrespected by the inhumane law that bans entry of immigrants to the U.S.”
Farhadi’s hypocrisy is sickening. How does he justify that statement with Iran’s ‘Death to America’ war cry, not to mention a regime that utterly disrespects human rights.
As an Iranian and a filmmaker, he must know about that video of Hassan Abbassi, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, bragging about the hidden army Iran is building up inside the U.S.
Abbassi admitted there are Iranian terror cells in place and ready to strike America.
“We have two million Iranians there,” Abbassi said. “Be certain that I will raise a guerilla army from amongst them against you. Look how vulnerable you were on 9/11 when four Arabs who don’t know how to fight managed to endanger your foundations.”
This doesn’t seem to bother Oscar winner Farhadi and his inhumane law.
To which one can only say, in fairness to humane law, humanity in general, civilization, and, indeed, America: Fuck off, Farhadi.
