Iranian Armed Forces’ Spokesman: Suppression of Protestors Reveals US Fake Democracy

Iranian Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi said that brutal suppression of American protestors shows the hollow nature of the US claims about democracy.

“The US government, despite its false human rights chants, has these days displayed its ugly and inhumane face in confrontation against the popular protests more than ever and it has destabilized the bases of its false democracy by resorting to the most violent methods,” General Shekarchi said on Sunday.

He added that the White House leaders who have always created many abnormalities in the region and the world by their interfering policies are now facing unrests in the US.

General Shekarchi said that the US hollow awe is falling and the sound of breaking its bones is being heard more than ever, adding that expansion of unrests in all US states and divergence of Washington’s traditional allies display this very reality.

Earlier today, the Iranian foreign ministry had called on the White House to stop intimidation of protestors and listen to the American people’s voice.

“Failed to keep its promise of stopping wasting money on foreign adventurism and embattled in a Covid-19 crisis of its own making, US regime now employs army, vicious dogs and ominous weapons to intimidate protesters,” the Iranian foreign ministry wrote on its official twitter page.

It underlined the need for the US to “listen to its people and change its bankrupt policies”.

On a fifth night of unrest in Minneapolis, protesters met a more aggressive response.

Protesters who took to the streets in Minneapolis for the fifth straight night on Saturday met a more determined response from police officers and National Guard troops, as demonstrations escalated in dozens of cities across the country — an outpouring of national anger sparked by the death of a black man in police custody.

Soon after an 8 p.m. curfew took effect, the police in Minneapolis began arresting protesters and firing tear gas and other projectiles toward crowds, and the National Guard used a helicopter to dump water on a burning car.

Police cars were set aflame, freeways were blocked, windows were shattered and authorities deployed tear gas and even rubber bullets. Multiple governors activated the National Guard and curfews were enacted in several major cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Denver, Miami and Milwaukee.
