Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 12, 2020

Many students at a university in Tehran have openly avoided walking over US and Israeli flags in an apparent show of defiance again the Iranian government. Video shows the students walking around, rather than across, the flags at Shahid Beheshti University campus. The flags were painted on the ground so that those walking along the route would thereby insult both countries - which Iran considers staunch enemies. Thousands of protesters chanting anti-government slogans have taken to the streets after Iran's military admitted it had mistakenly downed a passenger plane.

The United States of America is a beacon of freedom around the world.

A government created by and for the people and a constitution that limits the governments power over individuals is a model for all humanity.

Good for you. And I said MOST people. Reading Comprehension is fundamental.

Anyway, you have obviously been indoctrinated (probably unknowingly) by a foreign entity. It practically oozes out of your very pores.

Maybe it's the fact that you are an idiot. It practically oozes out of your very pores.

Less so, the closer you get to our southern border. But generally true.

#7 | Posted by snoofy People risk their lives trying to get into the US, some die trying. Some are real refugees escaping persecution, many are just looking for a better standard of living. I know of no other place where this is the case.

The United States of America is a beacon of freedom around the world.

It used to be.

20 years of constant wars. Locking up immigrants. Refusing refugees. Trump.

Have all tarnished that reputation.

The results would be different at a Sanders or Warren rally.

With all your education you can't even read, and understand what he posted .... no wonder your pay is, as you say "shciet"

Your lack of awareness isn't my lack of comprehension.

Fact is you tools support a xenophobic DOTUS because of his xenophobic policies while also crowing that were so great that people die trying to get here.

Oh you dress it up by lamenting the legality of it but when it comes down to it you lament much of the legal immigration as well.
