Obama: Iranians Just Kidding About 'Death to America!' Chants


Iranians don’t really mean it when they chant “Death to America!,” Pres. Obama declared in a speech defending his Iran nuclear deal today.

Obama again refused to use the words “radical Islamists,” instead blaming the chants on a few Iranian “hardliners”:

“I realize that resorting to force may be tempting in the face of the rhetoric and behavior that emanates from parts of Iran. It is offensive. It is incendiary. We do take it seriously. But superpowers should not act impulsively in response to talks… Just because Iranian hardliners chant ‘Death to America” does not mean that that’s what all Iranians believe.”

Unfortunately, some of those “hardliners” calling for “Death to America!” include Iran’s supreme leader and the Iranian Parliament.

Obama then accused Republicans of being in league with the Iranian hardliners:

“In fact, it’s those hardliners that are more satisfied with the status quo. It’s those hardliners chanting “death to America” who’ve been most opposed to the deal. They’re making common cause with the Republican Caucus.”
