The Supreme Leader of Iran took to Twitter over the weekend to tell Americans he thinks we need strict gun control. Not coincidentally, he holds his own people at gun point while he forces them to adhere to Sharia's religious and legal standards.
Women in Iran are punished for not wearing a hijab. Men in Iran are murdered for being gay.
But, even still, Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei attacked President Trump and US lawmakers on social media Sunday for not standing up to the gun lobby or introducing a nationwide ban on all firearms.
Iran's supreme ruler wrote, "No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What's the solution? It's to make guns illegal."
"Gun companies are so powerful that House representatives and U.S. senators don't dare pass prohibition of guns, and U.S. president doesn't dare speak out, rise against it. This is corruption."
Khamenei said the country's inability to act was because of a lack "of spiritual ideals, leading western societies to this point."
He believes a nation could "achieve bliss" if they had "religious and divine ideals."
Khamenei tweeted, "Today, in U.S., violence, moral corruption, collapse of family, children and next generations' have reached a level where US intellectuals insist on changing the content of movies, advertising, Hollywood cinema, etc... to that of 100 years ago with more moral aspects.
Meanwhile people in Iran are rioting and protesting in the streets for the right to let women dress and behave as they wish .Its true, Iran doesn't have the same gun violence problem as us. In Iran, most of the gun violence is spurred by the government. And since their citizens don't have a right to free speech, many of Iran's worst injustices never reach us here in the US.
But, oh yeah, lecture us on moral responsibility, Iranian Supreme Leader. You're really one to talk.
