Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei – who serves a nation that’s one of the biggest sponsors of Islamic-fueled terrorism – nonetheless saw fit to weigh in on America’s presidential campaign season, from the perspective of spirituality and religion. And his findings?
He basically characterized the candidates as unfit for office due to their supposed lack of “spirituality” and their failures to bring up issues of true importance.
He made the comments on Twitter.
And they read like this:
“US presidential race & issues two candidates raised is a typical result of lack of spirituality & faith among those in power. #debate.”
“One of the 2 main US presidential candidates will lead a country which has power, wealth & highest number of nukes & world’s biggest media!”
As the Hill noted:
“Khamenei has weighed in on U.S. politics before, tweeting multiple times in 2014 about race relations in America.”
And one example of his 2014 tweets?
He blasted the United States as racist in a reference to the turmoil at the time that swirled about Ferguson, Missouri, after a white police officer shot and killed a black 18-year-old – in defense, later local and federal investigations revealed.
But Iran’s ayatollah used the issue as a propaganda stepping stone to hit America, with this tweet, as noted by the Hill:
“Today like previous years, African-Americans are still under pressure, oppressed and subjected to discrimination. #Ferguson.”
