article imageOp-Ed: Obama's Hypocrisy On Honduras, Iran UPDATE: Coburn on Honduras

By Johnny Simpson     Jul 7, 2009 in Politics
President Obama made an eloquent speech today at the Moscow School of Economics regarding his position of reinstating President Zelaya in Honduras. Yet if you apply those same words to his approach to Iran's real coup, they could not ring more hollow.
Sen. Jim Coburn Defends Honduran Democracy in the Senate
UPDATE: The above embedded video is a speech by Sen. Jim Coburn on the floor of the Senate defending the Honduran government's legal ouster of Zelaya. Thank God someone in our government is trying to profer the truth instead of whitewashing it.
From Gateway Pundit, via ABC News:
Barack Obama explained why he is backing the ousted thug in Honduras during his speech today in Russia.
“America supports now the restoration of the democratically-elected President of Honduras, even though he has strongly opposed American policies,” the president told graduate students at the commencement ceremony of Moscow’s New Economic School.
“We do so not because we agree with him. We do so because we respect the universal principle that people should choose their own leaders, whether they are leaders we agree with or not."
Throughout this lecture on Democracy to Russian students, President Obama conveniently omits all the democratic and Constitutional mechanisms that led to President Zelaya's ouster in the first place. Just like Obama's new BFF Chavez, Ortega and the Castro brothers, pillars of democracy all, have done to date. Doesn't help their cause much to show Zelaya tried pulling a bloodless coup himself, does it?
Yet apply those same words above to Obama's continuing courting of Iran's illegitimate leadership, despite the coup, the fraudulent election, the bloodshed of innocents like Neda Soltan, and the ongoing torture and forced confessions of protesters and journalists in Evin prison. Hell, even the highly respected clerical leaders in Qum are speaking out more harshly against the election fraud than Obama! How bad is that?
Obama has already sanctioned Honduras, yet even refuses to consider financial sanctions against Iran and is working overtime to block them at the upcoming G8 meeting, despite wide support by G8 leaders, in order to Keep Hope Alive in Iran. His hope, not the Iranians'. But what do you expect from a president who addresses Supreme Asswipe Khamenei as Supreme Leader sans surname, and cozies up with the worst dictators in the Americas in the name of 'democracy'?
I have to tell you, people, I have not been this ashamed of an American president since Jimmy Carter. To watch Obama work actively against the democratic interests of both Honduras and Iran, hand in hand with the worst dictators on earth, makes me want to throw up. He is a disgrace to the office he holds. Kennedy and Reagan must be turning in their graves. Although I'm sure honorary Hamas commander Jimmy Carter approves. After all, he certified staged elections for Hamas, Chavez and Mugabe. Birds of a feather.
God, I feel low as an American today. Happy Fourth of July, everyone. Exceptions noted. It's going to be a very long four years under Obama. I hope we survive it. Doesn't look like Honduras or Iran will.
UPDATE: It appears the shooting victim in Honduras on Sunday was not shot by the military, which only used rubber bullets. Also, The bullet removed from 19-year-old Isis Oved Murillo was not of a military caliber. Add to that the staged bloody shirt and Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan Brownshirts stirring up the crowd at Tincontin Airport on Sunday and you do the math.
