Rose McGowan Sides With Iran, Apologizes For Death of General
Rose McGowan, one of the leaders of the #metoo movement, sparked controversy on Friday when she apologized to the people of Iran over the killing of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani. The United States, led by President Trump, killed the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps leader via a drone strike as he left the Baghdad airport.
“52% of us humbly apologize,” the former actress wrote. She referred to the United States as a “terrorist regime,” one she claimed to be being held hostage by.
While this news may seem far-fetched or exaggerated, it’s anything but.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) helps Iran maintain power through enforcement of Iran’s constitution. In case you were wondering, Iran’s constitution is a much different document than the United States’ constitution. In Iran, Islamic law is strictly enforced at the stern guidance of IRGC. In all public places, women must cover their heads with a headscarf and wear skirts that touch the floor. Women are sometimes asked to cover their entire bodies. If a woman is determined to be in a relationship with a non-Muslim man, the state whips her.
But wait, it gets better.
Homosexuality is illegal in the state of Iran. You’ll be killed by the state if caught.
The IRGC enforces all of this.
Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the man the United States killed, led this charge for years.
Let that sink in as you read over McGowan’s apology to a group of people who’d give anything to be as free as she.
