'Holy [bleep]. They did it!' Biden sends condolences over 'Butcher of Tehran' death

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Ebrahim Raisi, the Iranian official killed over the weekend in a helicopter crash, was not just the president of Iran.

He was the "Butcher of Tehran," known for holding five-minute "trials" for thousands of his own people and then sending them immediately to the execution squads.

And for this killer, who terrorized his own people, who had attempted to assassinate American officials including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who, by many assessments was a mass murderer, Joe Biden sent "condolences."

The statement actually was attributed to "spokesperson" Matthew Miller of the State Department under Biden, and said, "The United States expresses its official condolences for the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Amri-Abdollahian, and other members of their delegation in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran. As Iran selects a new president, we reaffirm our support for the Iranian people and their struggle for human rights and fundamental freedoms."

The expression of sympathy immediately drew gasps of outrage.

U.S. News reported, "Since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Raisi acted as an assiduous apparatchik of the Islamic Republic and a prominent protégé of Khamenei, who as supreme leader holds ultimate power in the Islamic Republic. Before becoming president in 2021, Raisi held various positions inside the judiciary under the purview of the supreme leader. As a prosecutor, and at the end of the Iran-Iraq War in 1988, he sat on the committee that sentenced thousands of political prisoners to death. The executions earned him the nickname the 'Butcher of Tehran' and subsequently subjected him to sanctions by the United States and to condemnation by the United Nations and international human rights organizations."

Twitchy's commentary on Biden's action wasn't complimentary of Raisi, or Biden.

"Holy cr*p. They did it! Biden's State Dept's reaction to 'Butcher of Tehran' death is something else."

One observer classified Biden among the "clueless."

One online report stunningly described Raisi as "a consummate loyalist whose passing will be a severe blow to the country's conservative leadership."
