Ahmadinejad, defender of free speech

Talk about irony. Iran's Islamofascist president had to cancel a speech after pro-freedom student protestors started chanting and burned his picture. Here's his response:

Ahmadinejad responded by describing those students chanting the slogans as an "oppressive" minority.

"A small number of people who claim there is oppression are creating oppression and do not let the majority hear (my) words," he said.

Oddly this article from AFP fails to mention how Ahmadinejad is censoring information and creating oppression of his own.


  • The student movement has always acted as a catalyst in Iran, but in recent it's disillusion, esp after the failure of reformist President Khatami, so the Monday incident will remain just a heroic memory for those involved.
