Because he was so adept at killing good people outside of his country, little has been said of Iranian terrorist hooligan Qaseem Soleimani’s penchant for murdering his own people.

It seems that habit continues, even after a U.S. Reaper drone efficiently dispatched him to the nether regions.

As such, at least 32 people have died and 190 injured in a stampede at a funeral procession held Tuesday in the ersatz general’s hometown of Kerman, Iran.

This info courtesy of the nation’s state media, a cable news system that had to interrupt its top-rated program amongst Iranian Army personnel “Who Wants to Eat a Missile?” to bring the report.

Just kidding about the show, kinda.

Was Trump right to order the airstrike in Baghdad that killed Iran's top general?

The happening draws darkly sardonic comparison to another incident in 1989 when the hardly clothed body of head cleric and Islamist fascist dictator Ayatollah Khomeini fell out of his open coffin like a Slinky because of frenzied jostling by overwrought mourners at his funeral procession, this time in Tehran.

For real.

Funeral processions seem to be popular in Iran.

As such, that clip made the number one slot in “This Week’s Top Funeral Processions”, another popular show on the quirkily-programmed Iranian state media.

Yeah, the television part again? Mostly not real.

Inappropriate jokes aside, Soleimani continues to leave death in his wake.

The emphasis on the coverage of this maniac has been on the threat he posed to U.S. personnel. And that he did.

But thousands of innocent Iranians also died at his hands.

The state of Iran maintains a terror network at home and abroad.

Like any repressive dictatorship it must monitor and persecute its own people, lest they organize to topple the regime and regain their own freedom.

The Iranian people tried that in the 2009-2010 Green Movement, which started as protests against a rigged election and became what even Al-Jazeera described as the “biggest unrest since the 1979 revolution.”

At least hundreds of thousands of Iranians took part. To aid in their effort they appealed to U.S. President Barack Obama for strong rhetorical support. Their pleas went unanswered.

As will the fervent pleas of evil individuals for Soleimani to end up anywhere but the darkest pits of hell.
