Iran's supreme leader said on Wednesday that a wave of protests spreading from Wall Street to cities across the US reflected a serious crisis that would ultimately topple capitalism in America.Speaking of peaceful protest, our friend Ringo has been quite busy. Zombie sends along this clip Ringo filmed in Los Angeles.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed the US was now in a full blown crisis because its "corrupt foundation has been exposed to the American people".
His remarks came during a rally in the western Iranian city of Kermanshah that drew tens of thousands of people. His speech was broadcast live on state TV.
The Occupy Wall Street movement started in New York last month. The loosely affiliated movement is peacefully protesting against the power of the financial and political sectors.
"They [the US government] may crack down on this movement but cannot uproot it," Khamenei said. "Ultimately, it will grow so that it will bring down the capitalist system and the west."
Remember the part about peacefully protesting while this schmuck calls for violence.
Congratulations to Obama and Pelosi. Your supporters are now openly calling for violence. Take a bow.
