The Regime Isn't So Bad or Chaos at Kos

I've been checking out the Liberal web site Daily Kos. (btw-is it pronounced kose or chaos? Seems I hear people say both. I'm hoping it's chaos, because that reflects what's going on over there. I won't get into the meaning of kos in Persian)
I've been drawn to some threads and discussions on Iran and when I'm not laughing, I'm in a state of disbelief that these people really believe this stuff they're writing.

All the World is a Conspiracy

Conspiracy theories seem to be the main glue holding things together at Kos. Well, that and Left-wing politics.
They’ve got a conspiracy theory for everything. In fact, someone was telling me about a statue or bust of President Bush that has become a topic of conversation among the Leftists , because it has a plaque with the date and year his presidency began, but the date of his presidency ending is left blank to be filled in later. Well, don’t you know what that means? At the Kos, it means that Bush is going to try to extend his presidency beyond his legal 8 years! I kid you not! The idea that it was left blank in case he should become incapacitated or heaven forbid, die, or resign or gets impeached (hey, that one ought to be in the front of their minds seeing as how some of their heroes are pushing for impeachment all the time) apparently went right over their heads.
Why go for the obvious when you can get a good conspiracy theory going?

Anyway, the main focus at the Kos regarding Iran, comes down to one main conspiracy theory: the White House wants to start a war in Iran and anything that is said or done with respect to Iran, is for that ultimate purpose. Never mind that the U.N. is involved, and we basically turned things over to the EU to try to work things out, they’re convinced that this President wants to invade Iran, and nothing is going to stop him. Well, not quite. The Leftists are going to try to stop him, by revealing Bush’s grand scheme of going to war in Iran to everyone else in the country.

Why does he want to start a war in Iran? I’m not sure, but I’ll hazard a guess they think it has something to do with the President’s plans to steal Iran’s oil and make all his oil buddy friends even richer than they are. They probably think he likes wars, too. Maybe you have some other ideas why they’re so convinced that Bush is salivating to go to war.

So, how is President Bush going to make the case to the American people for going to war? Drum roll please……………………………
He’s going to demonize the Iranian gov’t.
That’s right. He’s doing it now. He’s out there talking about how bad the Iranian regime is. And not only is he doing it himself, (along with all of his Neocon agents), he’s getting the media to do it too! Yes, the media is helping President Bush to scare the American people. In fact, the media has been scaring the American people into supporting the war. I’ll bet you didn’t know that! Who woulda thunk the media was helping Bush?!
That’s right. Those wonderful murdering mullahs known for hanging people from cranes, stoning women to death, whipping children tied to poles for having dared to attend a mixed boy/girl birthday party, and countless other depraved and satanic acts, need to be demonized by the White House. After all, the mullahs’ actions over the past 27 years aren’t demonic enough for the average person to have figured out that they are evil incarnate.

And what about Ahmadinejad? Isn’t the hate speech coming from his mouth bad enough? No. Apparently, there’s room for some to think that he might be an okay guy, so the White House has to demonize him also.

So, now you know. The secret is out.
Be prepared to hear lots of bad stuff about life in Iran because the White House and Bush’s minions are going to be out there telling you lies and exaggerating about the suffering endured by Iranians for the past 27 years, so that he can make a case for war.

After all, things really aren’t so bad in Iran.
According to the Left, life in Iran is better than here, because there’s a higher literacy rate, the health care is better and statistically there are fewer people in jail compared to the U.S.
[how the people on Kos know these things and have the numbers to back up these claims is a mystery. For one thing, the regime has never published or revealed the true number of prisoners in Iran]
And gas is cheap. Can’t forget that.

Oh, and if you happen to hear about the oppression and suffering of the Iranian people from an actual Iranian person on the TV, who is here in the U.S., or maybe even in Europe, that person is a White House shill. Yup. That’s the word from the Daily Kos.
Any Iranian dissident who appears on TV or radio or in the print media who is calling for regime change in Iran, is a White House ‘plant’ and probably his/her story and background information is fiction. Nevermind that its been documented by human rights groups. They can’t be trusted either. (yes, this is all being said at Kos)

BTW – Right-wing conservatives are referred to by the Left, as “wingnuts”. I find this term inoffensive and rather cute.
Actually, if you look at what a “wing nut” is and its purpose, its function is to fasten and hold objects together. Without it, the object would fall apart. That sounds like an accurate description of what the conservatives’ function is in this country. So I don’t mind the term “wingnut”, because without us to stabilize things and hold the country together, the screwy Left would cause the country to fall apart.

Everything I’ve written about the views and opinions of the Left, I got directly from comments on website. I refuse to link to them, but you can check it out yourself.
They’re absolutely bonkers and it does make for entertaining reading.
All I can say is, I’m glad I’m a “wing nut” and I hope there are enough “wingnuts” out there to hold things together and keep this country from falling apart. Right now, I have some doubts.

As for Iran, the White House needs to be putting all its efforts into supporting the Iranian people and helping them to bring down this regime. The demise of the regime is the key to fighting terrorism and having peace in the Middle East. Not to mention freeing the Iranian people from the tyranny they've lived under since 1979.

Chester: The people over at Kos are some of the most vicious vigilante bloggers on the planet. The only consideration they are interested in is how to get the power back that they lost. Humanity, human rights, justice be damned. They are self-rightous and elitist and they depend on googling to find their ultimate truth. The most pathetic display of ignorance. They politicize human sufferings and misery only to score a political point and have their candidates in office. Their moral relativism and their pathological hatred toward Bush and America have turned them into fundemantalists. They interpret every news through their zealot, political prism and ideology and they are tyrannical in their interpretation of the truth, which makes them perfect allies of the Islamic Republic. They are bordernline treasonous to this country.There’s a deep structural relationship between kossack's ideology and the totalitarian regime they appease, namely IRI. One of the major components of totalitarianism is the focus on conventional, state-approved values; and the corresponding suppression of individuality. In the DailyKOS, only those values approved by the kossak's leaders are permitted. Contrary values are suppressed immediately and written off as a "wingnuttery"; the individuals who hold contrary values are severly chastised and accused of being Ann Coulter(as I was recently and I'm apolitical) or working for American Enterprise Institue or some other organization they don't approve of because those said groups don't coroborate their self-serving agenda. These are the same people who probably brought down the Shah and helped install the mullahs by Carter et al. And these are the same people behind creating the reform movement they taut so much in Iran. This is a very interesting diary and it shows the complicity of CIA in manufacturing the reform movement.

In Iran, my friends (the ex-CIA Agents) said that in the mid-1990s, the U.S. and its (former) European allies had successfully created a republican (with small "r") movement in Iran that was poised to reduce, if not completely replace, the power of the mullahs. That republican movement in Iran was crushed virtually overnight by Bush's "Axis of Evil" State of the Union address in 2002.

That reference to Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as an "Axis of Evil" is a frightening case study of how policy is made in the Bush administration.

anonymous, you're right about Kos.

Thanks for the link.
We're supposed to believe that under Clinton, the CIA was planning some sort of overthrow of the Iranian regime?
Lol. The people at Kos have no idea how much they make me laugh.

Chester: I don't think the CIA intention was to overthrow the regime but to legitimize and butress it under the guise of reform and dialogue of civilization to make it more paltable for the world community.

I forgot to add that Clinton et al were doing this at the expense of Iranian's freedom and liberty and the expense of America's national security.

And you can see the lasting influence of this conspiracy by Clinton/Carter/Brzienski et al to this day:
1- MSM not reporting the news on
the regime's heinous crimes and
always slouching toward
2- The leftists aligning themselves
with the Islamists because their
leaders in the democratic party
touted the reform movement so
much for their constituents.
3- Allowing Iranian students and
Professors who support the
reformist to come to
America under the guise
of cultural exchange and
scholarly pursuit.

4- Creating organization such as

Check out Trita Parsi from Niac and see who are his mentors. Yes, Brezieski(sp?), Gary Sick et al.

You're getting the picture??

I doubt very much that the CIA had the cooperation of many (if any )reformers, to pull this off.
I think it's bs.

"I forgot to add that Clinton et al were doing this at the expense of Iranian's freedom and liberty and the expense of America's national security."

That goes without saying. If there's any truth in it.

I'm familiar with Trita Parsi and Gary Sick.

You make some interesting points and observations, I'm just not sold on your reasons for them.

Right now, I think the main reason for the dems not backing the Iranian freedom/democratic movement can be summed up.....if the regime is overthrown, that's an immediate plus mark in Bush's column. And the results of no regime financed/supported terrorism elsewhere in the world, gives Bush a HUGE plus, not to mention that we could leave Iraq much sooner and count that as a success, too.

The CIA might not have blatant cooperation but they cetainly had the tacit approval of Khatami and Rafsanjani.
