WASHINGTON. It seems the corpulent auteur Michael Moore, like the left in general, is distraught by the death of Iranian terrorist mastermind Gen. Qasem Soleimani. A man described by fake-news outlets in glowing terms like “revered figure” and “inspirational military leader.”
The reason is the enemy of their enemy makes that particular terrorist a dear friend. The mutual enemy being, of course, President Donald J. Trump.
Death to deplorables!
His election in 2016 caused the left to shake its collective fist and chant, “Death to America’s deplorables!” All the while seeing images of burning American flags glowing brightly in their fevered minds.
Who’s sorry now?
Moore took to Twitter in an effort to smooth Iran’s ruffled feathers in the wake of President Trump’s decision to rain drone rockets down on Soleimani.
“I have just sent the Ayatollah of Iran a personal appeal asking him not to respond to our assassination of his top General with violence of any kind, but rather let me & millions of Americans fix this peacefully.”
Moore added that he recorded a direct message for Ayatollah Khomeini on his podcast, which he said could be found on “Apple or Spotify for free.” He told his breathless followers he’d let them know “when the Ayatollah responds.”

It’s laughable Moore thinks Iran’s ruling 6th-century throwbacks have heard of Apple, Spotify, or him. And besides, he sent his message of appeasement to the wrong screwball.
Lost in translation
A wag who goes by the Twitter handle “Imam of Peace” informed Moore that Ayatollah Khomeini died in 1989 and that it is Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who is the current clerical crazy with his jackboot on the throats of prostrate Iranians.
The Imam of Peace added that Ayatollah Khamenei issued “a Fatwa against Music – which you play for him at the start [of your message]. What a fail.”
Also, you address your message to Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran. That guy died on the 3rd of June 1989. Your whole tweet and message is a mess from start to finish. The current Ayatollah is Khamenei and he has a Fatwa against Music—which you play for him at the start. What a fail… https://t.co/CQveU1yLuJ

“In no position to lecture”
The moral to this story is that Moore, Democrats, and the fake-news media know as much about Iran as they do the United States of America.
Moore’s groveling won’t remove him from Iran’s target list. Like it or not, he’s conjoined with the “Great Satan” by virtue of the freedom that fuels his creativity, pads his bank account, and fills his ample belly.
Besides, as British comedian Ricky Gervais brilliantly illustrated at last Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood/Media Complex is the least representative of America’s great unwashed.
“You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world.”
Moore foolishly believes he can reason with Iran’s rulers. The same creeps who issue fatwas against music – “the food of love.” The very notion is unreasonable on its face.
Dashed all to pieces
The good news is that by Moore’s own reckoning, Trump will take the White House in 2020. He told Democracy Now!:
“I believe he [Trump] would win the electoral states he would need because, living out there I will tell you his level of support has not gone down one inch. In fact, I’d say it’s even more rabid that it was before.”
That’s because, unlike Moore and the Democratic candidates he supports, Trump stands in support of America and her people. Not the murderous minions propping up Iran’s terrorist state.
A fact to which Iran’s Gen. Qasem Soleimani would attest – if he wasn’t in a million little pieces.
