Today is "Death to America" day according to the official islamic Republic of Iran's calendar. Apparently, some local Iranian officials planned to celeberate this day at a group event at a Bethesda MD Marriott hotel. Strangely, the hotel was actually going to host this event, until patriotic activists made a fuss and the hotel realized it was a violation of Federal Law to do business with Iran.
This is wrong on so many levels!
- If there really is an official "Death to America" day on a government recognized Iranian calendar, why aren't we setting off some fireworks over there to help them celebrate it? There's nothing like a Daisy Cutter to kick off a party.
- Why would any business in America, let alone a respected hotel, even consider hosting such an event for money? I would think that would be the death of the company as hopefully patriotic Americans would boycott it out of existence.
- Why aren't people on US soil attempting to celebrate a "Death to America" day guilty of some sort of crime and rounded up? If they are Americans, wouldn't that have to be treason?
