Iran's Mullahs Are Definitely Not 'Conservative'Topics: Iran
James Lewis indeed has a point. Clearly - The Mullahs (of Iran) are definitely not conservative:
... Google shows more than 2 million hits for the words "Iran conservative," in reference to the mullah regime. That's a slander against conservatives. The mullahs of Iran are emphatically not conservatives. They are reactionaries.So, how far off the reality reservation is the media? Check out Khomeini's words and see for yourself:
... The media call the Iranian mullahs "conservative" because they want to go back to the 7th century. But the mullahs don't admire George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, William F. Buckley or Rush Limbaugh. They hate conservatives, because they know that Ronald Reagan was a much harder nut to crack than Jimmy Carter.
... Just like the Nazis, the mullahs have a reactionary ideology. The Nazis wanted to turn the clock back to the blood-lust of the Nordic gods, before the advent of Christianity in Europe. They hated Christianity, Judaism, and any civilized morality. Their favorite prophet was the composer Richard Wagner, perhaps the most influential antisemitic propagandist of the 19th century. The Nazis were revolutionaries, as was one of their favorite slogans, "Alles muss anders sein." --- "Everything must change." That is the definition of revolution. There's nothing conservative about it.
... "We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah; For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world."As Lewis notes in his piece, Thomas Jefferson could not have said that. Nor Abraham Lincoln, Edmund Burke, or John Stuart Mill. The media's use of the word "conservative" is just another slander. True conservatives surely share Lewis's belief that it is high time for the media to correct that smear. If the New York Times, and others don't have access to a dictionary, surely we can send them one.
... "We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah; For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world."
