For as long as I can remember, a “human rights activist” is someone who wants to replace a modern society with a seventh century Islamic dictatorship.
Every day reports had come out of murder. bloodshed, and summary executions. All were part of ‘Ayatollah Ruhollahl Khomeini’s systematic destruction of the social fabric I had woven for my nation during a 37-year reign.
And not a word of protest from American human rights advocates who had been so vocal in denouncing my “tyrannical” regime!
