    But it’s totally off limits to joke that Democrats are sympathetic to the Iranian regime you guys. Don’t you dare post any memes with Pelosi or Schumer insinuating such.

    With thousands risking their lives in Iran to push back on the oppressive Islamist government that rules over them, you’d think the one thing Republicans and Democrats could agree on is supporting them in our rhetoric. No one is even talking about going to war, arming them, or doing anything other that saying “this is right, and this is wrong.”

    But nope, Democrats blocked a resolution today that would have shown U.S. support for the protestors.


    And just in case someone might think McCarthy had put some partisan poison pills in the resolution that made it impossible for Democrats to support, that’s another nope.


    Consideration and a vote on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution was blocked because Democrats advanced the previous question, by a vote of 226-191. The resolution would have condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, as well as condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.

    In addition, the resolution; “(3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752; (4) calls on the Government of Iran to— (A) refrain from the use of violence; and (B) protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly; and (5) supports the protestors in Iran, their demands for accountability, and their desire for the Government of Iran to respect freedom and human rights.”

    Getting involved in Iran's internal politics is a bad idea.

    The Dems should be ashamed of themselves. But then again, they have no morals.

    House approves resolution against using force on IRAN, and blocks resolution supporting Iranian citizens over their oppressive government.

    Just another day in the swamp.

    That’s not involvement. It’s merely a symbolic gesture demonstrating value system.

    I don’t care about it one way or another. But the Dems do own it.

    Iran making a mockery of those burning Bush's 9/11 Al Qaeda "death to the infidels" protesting killing their own, but as this Christian Nation; Islam will whitewash themselves past the pleasure principle of forgiving themselves with suicidal sociopsychopathilogical super egos in homicidal human farming just as the Catholic Church megalomaniacal "serve the Pope or die" to maintain their master race ethnic cleansing where master plan problems of political science are revered as was Nazi economics of Mengele Angel of Death Christiananality pedophilia of WW II concentration camps.
