Fake, But On the Nose
Jason Raimondo is complaining about an allegedly fabricated story that Iran is requiring Jews and other minorities to wear identifying clothing, yellow stripes for Jews. This is a powerful reminder of the Nazi practices. So let's stipulate that the news article is false. The implication is that somebody is trying to make the Mullahs look like Nazis. Can you imagine! I'm all for truth in reporting, literal truth as well as substantive truth, but let me ask you this. Does anyone think that the Jews and Christians of Iran have a lot to look forward to? I don't know a lot about Iran, but there has been a huge shift in Jewish population in the Middle East. They're almost gone from Iraq. Christians are also not doing well in Southern Iraq where the Iranian-style Shiites are most prevalent.
