(Gateway Pundit) – Over 1,500 protesters, mostly young men and women, were murdered by the regime in Iran in the November 2019 protests.
Democrats on Tuesday blocked a House vote to support the brave Iranian student protesters in Iran.
Democrats side with the anti-Semitic, murderous regime.
What a disappointment —Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protestors.
This is not the time for partisan politics. This should be a time for the US Congress to speak with one voice to condemn an Iranian regime that kills its own people.

Why in the world are @HouseDemocrats blocking the @GOPLeader's resolution condemning this Iranian regime for obvious human rights violations? This isn't complicated. Let's stand up for the same basic right to free speech in Iran that we have here and vote on this resolution.

LR @RepMcCaul: "It is a resolution, telling the Iranian people and the protesters in #Iran that we support them, that the American people have their back. Democrats would not allow a vote on this resolution.” pic.twitter.com/YeMXvFeNSP

The Daily Caller reported:
Democrats in the House of Representatives blocked a vote Tuesday to support the protesters in Iran who are demonstrating against the regime.
Consideration and a vote on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution was blocked because Democrats advanced the previous question, by a vote of 226-191. The resolution would have condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, as well as condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.
This is the same regime that is behind the murders of at least 600 American soldiers in Iraq.
