Hypocrite of the Day

Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, addressing a group of lawmakers Wednesday:

[N]either the system nor the people will submit to bullying.

At first I thought it was incredibly brazen and ironic to say something like this, but then I realized something much more repugnant: Khamenei actually believes beating and murdering protesters is a just response to their (Western-orchestrated) dissent. This is the danger of madness ascending to power.
