The Iranian parliament jumped on the bandwagon of oppressive authoritarian regimes using the riots in American cities to score political points against the United States, and issued a statement declaring black Americans “have been unable to breathe for decades under the pressure of racial terrorism by the U.S. regime.”
“Today, ‘American nightmare’ is emerging more than ever, and the cry of the oppressed blacks is being heard, who, like martyr Malcolm X, want to shout that we are victims of Americanism; the victim of the hypocritical system that today seems to be all over the world, as if it has the authority to tell all the people of the world how to run their country,” said the Iranian parliament, as quoted by Iran’s Press TV, which hastened to explain to its audience that Malcolm X was also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and was a Muslim.
According to Press TV, the Iranian parliament also tossed in the “400 years of slavery” talking point that has obsessed the American Left of late, thanks to the New York Times’ comprehensively debunked (but still on course to be taught in schools) “1619 Project,” and claimed black Americans suffered disproportionately from the Wuhan coronavirus as well.
The parliament also condemned President Donald Trump as a “terrorist” for supposedly threatening to “kill American protesters,” demonstrating that “people in other countries are not only victims of US state terrorism, but that Americans are the first victims of various forms of terrorism.”
On Tuesday, Press TV invited “black American community organizer Desmond Adams” to use its pages to argue that “America is a dreadful place to live if you’re not white.”
