Dozens Dead In Iran After Stampede During Qasem Soleimani’s Funeral

The official line coming from the GOP is that General Qasem Soleimani was just an “evil terrorist” and none of these scenes of heartfelt outrage we are seeing across the Shiite world in reaction to his assassination – his body has been deliberately paraded across the Shia Crescent in Iraq and Iran where he has been held up as a martyr and compared to Imam Husayn – are real and that it is all being coerced and orchestrated by the Iranian government.

Axios:

“At least 56 people were killed and 21 injured in a stampede at a funeral procession for Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in his hometown of Kerman, according to the AP, citing Iranian state television.

The big picture: The hometown burial marks the end of a three-day-long mourning period for Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq last Friday. Funerals in cities across Iran for Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a senior Iraqi militia commander who also died in the Baghdad strike, have drawn huge crowds. …”

It is unclear how the Iranian government would be able to coerce all the people who marched through Baghdad and who came out to honor his memory in Karbala in Iraq where there is a shrine where Husayn is buried. These people all secretly want to be “liberated” by the U.S. military which the Iraqi parliament voted to expel from Iraq this weekend.

If anything is true, the lies coming from the GOP about Soleimani eclipse the neocon war propaganda that led up to the Iraq War. Qasem Soleimani wasn’t a Sunni terrorist like Osama bin Laden or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He wasn’t the leader of a non-state terrorist group like al-Qaeda or ISIS. Far from being a “terrorist,” the reason that he is being compared to Husayn in the Shiite world is because he is credited for destroying ISIS and for the gruesome way in which he was executed and what it led to which was the Second Fitna or the Second Islamic Civil War. The Shia world is rousing itself for a massive regional war with the United States.

The red war flag that we saw hoisted above the Jamkaran mosque is called the Ya la-Tharat al-Husayn which dates back to the Second Fitna. It was first raised after the Battle of Karbala in a call to avenge the death of Imam Husayn ibn Ali. It means avengers of Husayn. Americans watching these scenes play out on FOX News have no idea what any of it means.

Note: BTW, all the real terrorists from al-Qaeda and ISIS who have killed Americans and Europeans have been Sunni Muslims. At least up until this point. That is likely to change in the near future.

  1. This is a bit off topic, but I remember watching (and disgustedly laughing at) documentaries of the Soviets and their “child care” institutions from way back in the early ’80s. It is the height of irony that we in 21st Century America have copied their example almost to a “T.”

    These riotous Iranian protestations against the “Great Satan” are really nothing new for those of us old enough to remember the Iranian Hostage Crisis during the Carter Administration and all of that. We also beat “those commie [Russian] bastards” in Olympic ice hockey that next year, so there! But we still need to be cautious in any case, and in all seriousness.

    I think Donald J. Trump is nothing more nor less than a circus sideshow idiot, but that is just me.

    Go MAGA! Go Trump 2020!

    • T. Morris,

      Yep. All those events were occurring in rapid succession. The USSR invading Afghanistan. The Americans boycotting the Summer Olympics in Moscow, and yes the “Miracle on Ice” in Lake Placid New York.

      Of course a few decades later, the mujahideen the CIA gave lethal aid to fight the Soviet Union with would become the Taliban of today. Haha. Funny how that happens.

  2. The last gasps of FOX News and GOP ‘White Supremacy’ is starting a War with Iran all while White Americans are becoming a minority, White suicides/overdose deaths are skyrocketing, anti-White leftist pop culture memetics are exponential, and we’re being replaced as worker units by the elites who have determined our wage slave productive output to be below efficiency and profit margin expectations for shareholders.

    Thankfully, I don’t have cable or a TV or it would probably be broken right now. The good thing about 2020 compared to 2003 is the ubiquity of the internet and the ability to counter the propaganda in real time. The bad thing is that hasbaras and myriad cloaked propagandists are everywhere and our population is largely distracted, uninterested, lower IQ, amoral, and nihilistic. Thankfully, the true Dissident Right has emerged the past several days and the frauds, shills, and grifters have been exposed which provides some sunlight amidst the bleakness we’re witnessing.

    We all remember Bill Kristol and Kevin Williamson’s disdain for the White working class and Paul Singer and Mitt Romney and other GOP company harvesters in rural White America. Meanwhile, they all support a War with Iran where the same middle class and working class rural White Americans will be slaughtered in the endless meat grinder. One has to conspiratorially wonder if Big Jewish Money/Investment is deliberately not directed towards Red State America to keep relatively higher unemployment numbers to increase the Jarhead supply for ZOG. I’m probably wrong but it’s a good question to ask and within the realm of possibility.

    As those of us Dissident Gen Xers, who lived through and protested the 2003 neocon propaganda era see it reemerge again as Whites are literally dying off, I know for sure the volcanic wrath that I feel now is shared. We all now wait to see where the righteous vengeance of Saint Soleimani is poured out and hope it’s not on the White Jarheads from rural Red State America. But, these things are now out of our hands. What’s not out of our hands is ensuring that Zlimpf and the White GOP is held fully responsible for their treachery.

    • Dissente – thank you for your intelligent commentary.

      The missile attack on the JewSA barracks was largely symbolic. The JewSA is is a slavering monster. We’ve shown ourselves as JEWS. Murderous, ruthless, pitiless; even more than the physical destruction we now delight in HUMILIATION. Every Government figure/pundit/Hebe puppet is babbling how mighty we are….all while the actual country is dissolving into ruin and chaos.

      Notice how the kike establishment have gone SILENT?

      The entire Shia Muslim world is now united against us. Not just Iranians – the ENTIRE Shia world.

      It’s not necessarily going to be Big Things. It’s going to be a death of a thousands cuts.

      We Remnants must do our very best to just stay out of the way…

  3. Judah Maccabee, Judas of Galilee, Theudas, Soleimani – all fought for the God of Abraham against Pagan Empires.

  4. Yeah, but these are still angry mobs of overwhelmingly dark, hairy, TP and soap avoiding unter. You don’t want your pretty Nordic daughter (I have one) having to be caught in a mob like this anywhere, be it Tehran Iran, Sweden, Oldham England or in LA during a rumor that all undocumented will be given driver’s licences and full US citizenship.

    Iranians/Persians during the 1960s and 70s under the beneficent rule of the Shah of Iran looked great, well scrubbed, wearing the latest Parisian fashions.

    Yeah the Shah oppressed people, including the use of torture.

    The Shah’s agent oppressed:

    The 8th Century TP and Soap avoid Islamic mobs and
    Oppressed the worst Marxist/Communist same as Chilean patriot Gen. Pinochet.

    Good.

    And always remember – our choice isn’t between taking the worst 3rd world, unter Islamic migrant rapist, suicide bombing 8th century Jihadists or

    Taking the Zionists, Neo Conservative, J feminist, j Hollywood ZOG side.

    We can take and must take…..

    Our own side

    The White Western Civilization side.

    If we can make the White Western Civilization side work in some type of “Christian” way – all the better.

    if not…

    Mighty Thor doesn’t turn the other cheek.

  5. I see Soleimani as an important contributor, alongside Assad and Putin, to the defeat of al Qaeda groups and ISIS in Syria. He played an even more important role against ISIS in Iraq. Those calling him a terrorist and ordering or applauding his assassination armed, funded, and supplied those wahhabi terror groups. I respect him more than war criminals like Obama, Clinton, Biden, Kerry, Trump, Pence or Pompeo.

  6. I note Rush Limbaugh returned crowing about Soleimani’s assassination. ‘They buried him in a cardboard box! Nyahh-nyahh!’ No, he didn’t say the last, but it sounded like it. Like most of the cuckright, Rush never met a war he didn’t like.

    I would be surprised to see real war come. it seems more of a I-double-dog-dare-you style of warfare.
    Soleimani’s assassination reminds me less of an orchestrated strike against terrorism then in the old days when we were fighting Indians, the army couldn’t catch them until they asked for a peace conference, the chiefs would show up, and the army grabbed them and shipped them off to prison.

    I’m sorry, it just seems the same old-same old. And Iraq votes for U.S. forces to leave? All we can say is ‘you and what army?’ We disbanded theirs, remember?
