How many head of state do you know in history to act mad on occasions? Surely they’re not much. But it’s been common among Iranian politicians after the revolution to talk nonsense or stupid and even funny on almost every occasion. The least blooper was in fact the reformist and former president Khatami who I can say has been the best of the worst so far in three decades of the Islamic dictatorship.
However, blooping trend has been on rise since ahmadinejad got into presidential office at 2005. Beside the fact that majority in Iran and many outside know him as a complete and everyday blooper, after the uprising of post-election 2009 pious blooping is getting doubled and even tripled in scale. Laughingly, the trend acts like an epidemic is spreading far and wide to remotest holes of the state!
The very last blooping was by the head of Islamic Judiciary, Sadeq Larijani, whose brother is the head of ‘Islamic Majlis’, an assembly under supreme leader’s full control. On his latest remarks, he amazingly said yesterday that Iranians need absolutely no account of sociology and psychology to be taught or discussed in any form and social sphere. Of course that’s part of Mullahs terminology to use very common names targeting specific interests and mean completely different. They usually mean the intelligent agents, political and ‘sharia’police or BASIJ (paramilitary guardians of revolution) by pointing on terms such as ‘people’ or ‘Iranians’ during their speech in general.
As far as I know when the sign of madness conquers the hearts and minds of politicians in a state, that system is going to pass slowly away. Madness, stupidity, and anger are just signs of weakness of the wicked. It seems international pressures are started to revealing their fist.
