On Thursday, news broke that President Trump ordered a targeted strike in Iraq against Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces. Reaction to the killing of the terror leader was fairly predictable. American liberals and media propagandists weren’t happy with it at all. Ilhan Omar, the anti-Semitic, pro-Iranian Democrat from Minnesota even promised to stop Trump from taking action. Average Iranians, however, seemed to have a much different opinion.
In two separate reports, Newsbusters informed us that CNN and MSNBC, the official network of insane liberal hate, decried the killing of a man responsible for the deaths of American troops.
Nicholas Fondacaro tells us:
take our poll - story continues below
…During the primetime pearl-clutching on MSNBC’s The Last Word, a panel of journalists and former Obama administration officials were busy suggesting there was no plan and “if” Soleimani deserved what he got, Trump was the “wrong” president to dish it out.
Towards the end of the show, host Lawrence O’Donnell basically went around the room and had his panel of lefties quickly reiterate their gripes about the strike that they made throughout the show.
Here’s video, courtesy of Newsbusters:
“I think you’ll see Qasem Soleimani treated as a martyr and treated as a hero of his country, which is not how we Americans see him. But you can certainly expect the Iranian regime to use this for all the propaganda value they can,” former Obama Middle East advisor Daniel Benaim said.
Of course, the leadership in Iran reacted as one might expect:
That guy has tweeted that we see Iran responsible for the events in Baghdad & we will respond to Iran.
1st: You can’t do anything.
2nd: If you were logical —which you’re not— you’d see that your crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan… have made nations hate you. https://t.co/hMGOEDwHuY

But others had quite a different opinion:

The best gift for us was killing a terrorist and commander of the Islamic Republic#TnxPOTUS4Soleimani

There’s quite a few more like this, but you get the point.
Some at CNN also seemed a bit distraught to hear of the terror leader’s death, Newsbusters said:
And of course, the left-wing Washington Post called Soleimani “Iran’s most revered military leader” in a headline that was changed less than an hour later.
“Of course,” Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck said, “this comes after The Post hailed now-deceased ISIS leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar” and earlier this week trumpeted Iranian-backed protesters and militia members trying to storm (and then kill Americans) as merely ‘protesters.’ The New York Times even boasted they were “mourners.”
So, to recap, The Post gives top billing to deceased terrorists, but conservatives, the Republican Party, and President Trump? They might as well be Nazis and Trump a reincarnation of Hitler.
Lastly, thoughts and prayers to the Obama administration and specifically Ben Rhodes. Because based on the way liberal and progressive foreign policy experts are reacting on Twitter, they’re going to need them.
Consider, for example, this tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar:
So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?
Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will. https://t.co/Fj9TMossEW

We’re not really surprised, given her previous show of support for the Iranian regime:
- Deposition: Anti-Semitic Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar Accused Of Passing Sensitive Info To Iran Through Qatar
- TREASON: America-hating, anti-Semitic Dem Rep Ilhan Omar sides with Iran against U.S.
- Anti-Semitic Dem Rep Ilhan Omar: Let’s appease Iran, reinstate nuclear deal
Response to her tweet was pretty much what you’d expect:
Absolutely disgraceful. Think of the American troops killed and mangled at the hands of this monster. Resign— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) January 3, 2020
Can we question their loyalty now?
