Jane Sanders, on elections: "Iranians show the world how it's done."

Last edited Wed May 24, 2017, 05:20 PM - Edit history (1)

Does she realize that Iranian citizens lack freedom of speech and assembly? And that an ultra-right cleric, the Supreme Leader, decides who can run and who can't?

6. They just re-elected him. And he doesn't have the real power -- it's with

the Supreme Leader, a cleric who is appointed for life.

And there are many other ways Iran doesn't "show the world how it's done."

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/16/middleeast/iran-election-beginners-guide/

Is Iran really a democracy?

Yes and no. Iran's president and parliament are democratically-elected, but the country's highest authority is the Supreme Leader, who is appointed for life and has the final say on all matter of foreign and domestic policy.

The Supreme Leader -- currently an ultra-conservative cleric named Ayatollah Ali Khamenei -- helps appoint the Guardian Council, an unelected panel of conservatives that decides who gets to run for president (and who doesn't). Many popular reformist candidates have been disqualified from running in recent elections.

12. He was re-elected

And nobody gets to even be a candidate without the consent of the supreme religious authority. Iran is an Islamic theocracy, and that one man, the Supreme Leader, exerts ideological and political control over a system dominated by clerics who shadow every major function of the state. At the top of Iran's power structure is the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who wasn't the fellow just elected president.

15. It's not the first time

He just won re-election. He was first elected in 2013. Thanks, Obama.

Still, Iran is not exactly our model of democracy. It's a theocracy, where the Supreme Leader (Khameini) is the real head of state, based on religious law, and all the candidates for the presidency must be approved by him. So Rouhani, yay, but it's not that great. The only good thing is that Khameini will not be in power soon, and so perhaps a more moderate Supreme Ruler will be installed. But no election there: a council appoints him.

Iran's people sent the hardliners a message that they will only ignore at their peril. They want less adventurism and more focus on the economy. Their guy won. Khameini doesn't need any lessons about the power of the street.

Given the paucity of true democracy in the region, your complaints about Iran are pretty comical.

9. It's a step in the right direction. Iran is just like the US right now.

Becoming gradually more and more progressive all the time, due to the clear-eyed idealism of its young people, but ruled over by a gang of crazed, ultra-conservative men who pay lip service, at least, to the prevailing religious strictures that allow them to garner all power to themselves. All the while operating in the shadow of a clownish, cartoonishly provocative figurehead leader.

Trump and the repukes don't have the balls to do this, but the next Democratic President should definitely visit Iran, and re-open relations with them, a' la Nixon with China.

Iran would be an indispensible ally to have in that part of the world. We were aware of that fact at one time, but went about keeping Iran's loyaly in absolutely the worst way possible (the Shah).

And we have an electorate who thinks that because Comey did his job investigating Trump--while making sure he got elected--that he must not have been that bad.

What does Comey care if Trump is impeached and removed? The Republicans took back the White House, Hillary was humiliated and Gorsuch is on the Supreme Court.

At least the Iranian people, for the most part, understand that the theocrats control the system. The American people don't seem to understand just how evil and undemocratic the conduct of the FBI was.

52. You are assuming that the United States is guaranteed to remain a democracy.

I no longer make that assumption.

Forget about Donald Trump. We have a Republican majority on the Supreme Court, which will be even more conservative if Kennedy retires, and they are more than happy to help with voter suppression and letting money flood into the system. They are also more than capable of reaching a point where they declare anything too liberal to be unconstitutional.

We also have an FBI that sees itself as being responsible for destroying the reputation of Democratic candidates and helping to elect Republicans. Whether or not they like Donald Trump is besides the point.

People say that President Trump is scary. Well how committed do you think President Scott Walker would be to the principles of democracy?

Because my wife went out with shorts, tee shirt and no bra today. And no religious police or even offended neighbors said a word.
And no religious nut job vetted all of our candidates for the election. And I am free to say whatever I want about any political or religious leader I want, either out loud, on line or in print. Other than that and like a million other things, I guess we are just like the Iranians.

But hey, if it makes you feel better in these dark times to feel as victimized as the Iranian citizens, knock yourself out. It is totally your right and I support it. Just do not expect many Americans, even very liberal Americans to agree.

67. Then she should have SAID that

As it sits, the tweet is stupid to say the least. She said, in total: "Iranians show the world how it's done." Not a word about a turnout. At best, she's as dumb as dirt about Twitter.

73. Fine but any idiot would know

that the tweet would be shown by itself. She had plenty of characters left to make it clear. As I said, dumb as dirt.

75. Of course it's misrepresented

 

And quite deliberately.

And this from a poster that spends a lot of time aggressively promoting and defending a right-wing blogger.

Curious.

33. To be fair I think she was praising the people, not the government.

I thought she was still working on those tax returns so they can be released.

66. I was and still am crazy for Bernie, but Jane was a problem for me

I do not know why, but she rubbed me the wrong way on interviews. A subjective observation to be sure, but she never improved in her faintly superior-acting demeanor. Plus the college finance stuff and her reason for leaving that post bothered me.

If Bernie had achieved the nomination, I think she would have been a distraction, once the media sunk its teeth into her.

78. I guess, provided your candidates pass the clerics muster.

The their President is nothing but a puppet of Ali Khamenei who's lead the country since 1989.

The ignorance of Jane O'Meara Sanders is profound.

87. I guess we now know what it takes

to get progressives to defend the wonderful Democracy they have going on over there in Iran.

This liberal is having none of it.
