Time to wake up

It is not a secret that blind anti Americanism has become a culture. This culture is spread throughout the world, even in the U.S, where naïve Americans get influenced by leftist media and leftist activists.

Dictators and irresponsible governments use this culture to justify their actions. Look at our own country Iran. Revisiting the events in the last 50 years, shows that Shah executed a coup with his followers and the people who supported them, and the blame goes on America, Shah falls and the blame goes on America for not supporting him/wanting a anti communist regime in Iran (as if Shah wasn’t!), Khomeini comes in and the blame goes on America for they want to suppress Iran/they are friends with the mullahs/Their alleged 1953 coup caused the revolution/their cultural influence endangered the Iranian culture/, the IRI regime’s actions in the last 30 years is also blamed on America for not conversing with the regime/ignoring Iran’s regional power/animosity with the Iranian people/…and the list goes on! So in every event, there is a bashing of America going on! All of this happens as we Iranian do not exist and have absolutely no role in what happens in our own country. If that’s not 1- Twisting of reality 2- insulting the Iranian people, I don’t what is!

That irrational anti Americanism is not only unique to Iran. Other undemocratic governments have done that too. Some examples are China, Russia, Venezuela, N Korea, Myanmar, Zimbabwe, Syria, Sudan and Cuba. These countries have portrayed themselves as “anti Imperialist”, and “freedom fighters”, and “justice promoters”, and “hope for human beings!!”! That brings up an important question: what is these so called “Anti American” regimes are talking about and what have they done for their own country? Well, numbers don’t lie! Below, I have gathered data that shows the above mentioned governments’ ranking in critical issues such as human rights and economic prosperity.

So, how much credibility do these regimes have? How misguided is this irrational anti Americanism that these people invented and promote for? How can we believe or accept anything that comes out of the mouth of these regimes? These are some of the nastiest, brutal, aggressive and human rights violating governments in the history, and because of the influence of global leftist media, some have actually bought there propaganda. America is a perfect target because its powerful, unique and most importantly stands against everything they don’t stand for and is not just a country, but an idea, and Americans have built a nation rarely, if seen at all, in history. This country promotes and represents an idea far greater than what these people can ever understand, and that is respect for human dignity.

It’s time to wake up and stop apologizing for these regimes. The only losing party in our justifications and apologies is the people suffering under these regimes.
