Three, the “legitimacy” of protests is purely subjective, hence the astounding hypocrisy of declaring that the Iranian gov’t must respect and allow protests against their own government, but the US gov’t is free to put down protests against their own gov’t with violence due to their being “illegitimate.” Iran could just as readily bring up all the protests in the US that have been put down with the truncheon and worse as “unlawful assemblies.”

Somewhere in here, it amounts to: the US can be the empire umpire on what is legitimate/illegitimate because it is strong.

well, “empire” for “umpire” was a Freudian slip….

So it’s just establishing a power dynamic, not making a moral statement.

Kind of like most conservative stuff involving fucking.
