Actress Apologizes To Iran For Trump's Airstrike On Soleimani

Actress Rose McGowan channeled her inner John Kerry and apologized to Iran for President Trump’s drone-strike that killed Iranian General and terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleimani. The Hollywood luminary took to that bastion of erudition, Twitter, to prostrate herself before the Iranian Mullahs—and tell the world of her hatred for the president and the country in which she resides. She tweeted: “Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. #Soleimani.”
It is nearly impossible to picture a more inane, hypocritical, sickening utterance or a potentially more harmful attitude. Addressing the terrorist regime as “Dear Iran” is gag-inducing on its own, but pales in comparison to the rest of the tweet. She’s concerned we’ve “disrespected” the Iranian flag? Something tells me she’s probably okay with athletes failing to stand for our own flag and national anthem. Arbitrarily asserting that 52% of us not only don’t fully approve of the action but wish to “humbly apologize” to the Mullahs for it should make 100% of Americans want to vomit. If those in the Iranian regime truly thought a majority of Americans felt this way, it would embolden them to launch more-- and even worse-- terror attacks on Americans and American interests far and wide. To then say, “We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime” and “do not know how to escape” before adding, “Please do not kill us” marks her as certifiable. What an incredible slight to the 52 Americans who were actually held hostage for 444 days by Iranian revolutionaries from November 4th, 1979 until January 21st, 1981. You aren’t being held hostage, Ms. McGowan. You are free to come and go as you please…and call your duly elected president a terrorist. Oh, and vote this coming November.
Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of over 600 American troops and organized the murder of countless thousands of his own people, Kurds, and others. He had ties to various terror organizations and led the notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds force. The Pentagon says he and the Quds Force were behind the recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
After taking some heat for her remarks, McGowan acknowledged that Soleimani was “an evil evil man who did evil evil things,” yet quickly added: “But that at this moment is not the f***ing point. The United States is morally corrupt and acts illegally. It is only logical to appeal to Iran’s pride by apologizing. I’m taking one for the team. #TeamStayAlive.” Logical? Really? Would McGowan have been consistent in saying that about another “evil evil man who did evil evil things” and controlled the most powerful military in the world at the time, #Hitler? Pathetic.
She also tweeted, “I do not side with Iran, but I most definitely do not side with the USA.” Meaning, she sides with Iran. And she noted: “I want the Democrats to win because we are less likely to die. I am a conscientious objector to the USA, it’s policies, lies, corruption, nationalism, racism, and deep misogyny.” Historically speaking, Ms. McGowan, we aren’t “less likely to die” with Democrats in power. As for corruption, nationalism, racism and deep misogyny, I suggest you emigrate to an Islamic state somewhere in the Middle East or North Africa. Go and be a wealthy, famous actress in Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, et. al. I bet they love the films you’ve starred in, such as “Going All the Way” and “Devil in the Flesh.” Just remember to keep your eyes lowered and don’t draw attention to yourself. And I’m sure you won’t mind the entirely non-misogynistic female genital mutilation.
Rose, by any other name, would still be insane and hateful.

(Since I wrote this piece, filmmaker Michael Moore has also apologized to Iran on behalf of the American people).
