How does the GOP have the nerve to say they are for Civil Rights in Iran, but not here?

    You can't be anti civil rights here, pro gerrymandering, pro voter suppression and then talk in the positive about those in Iran marching for civil rights and voting rights.

    You can't work towards a "government purge" here and bluster about more open government in Iran.

    You have to be consistent in your values. If you support rights there, you have support rights here. You can't do one in one country and something else in another.

    As long as Trump and the GOP don't share those values for this country, then it is indeed "hypocritical".

    Iran even has a universal healthcare program while here, Republicans throw millions and millions of Americas off healthcare.
    And even ran on a policy of "let him die".

    Dumb Ass, the Right are more for Civil Rights, here, there, anywhere, than any of you Leftcons will ever be! That is the missing term in your shaky equation! If you want to see any civil rights violations going on here, all you need to do is go to any liberal college like Berkeley and see people's right to free speech and many other things routinely violated.

    How does Rderp support the Democrat and especially the Val Jarrett/Barack Obama Axis of Evil that supports nations who throw gay men off of buildings?

    Both parties gerrymander.....

    there is no voter supression.

    There is no "purge."

    You guys would be funny if you weren't so fucking stupid.

    Iranians are telling the world what they think of their regime.
