Leave it to some of the planet’s creepiest, most hypocritical goons to get mad at a dance song. They can embezzle billions, rape their own people for three decades, and murder at will. But the folks they rule can’t dance or they get tortured. Wow, that’s quite the benevolent religious paradise they’ve got going. Who wouldn’t want to join the club?
You know, I sometimes get the feeling that brutal dictatorships do this just because they can. They don’t really care about these people dancing, they just want to show everybody they can crush folks at a whim. That they can be assholes for no reason and get away with it.
I especially think that’s the case here because they actually got these folks to confess on camera that they’d been duped. Not only can the overwhelming power of the Iranian State keep you from dancing, it can melt your brain to the point you admit you hate dancing, when you don’t. All Hail! I want to live in a Benevolent State than can force me to admit on video that I hate beer. Good luck with that, hit squad losers! I’m pretty sure you’d have to electric drill my cheeks first.
Maybe the Iranian State’s death squads need to change their tune? Maybe they should try smiling a little, like spread happiness instead of raw fear. At least then they could pull the wool over everybody’s eyes. Here, just take a look at this guy, now this is how you spread happiness in a vicious-fenced-liquidation-camp:
Now that’s a guy I could have a drink with!
I feel bad for Pharrell Williams though, that he has this on his conscience, it’s not his fault, but he says the right thing:
“It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness,”
So if ordinary citizens post a video online saying they’re happy to be from Tehran and are then punished by the Iranian State, does that mean the Iranian State is not happy to be from Tehran? We think yes. Accordingly, we invite them to leave Tehran and move in with my guests & I. I assure you, you’ll be well treated. You can trust my guests. They’re just like you guys, so you know you can count on honesty and integrity.
