How Pete Hoekstra and the Republicans Inspired a Nation

leave a comment »

The Grand Old Party has fans all over the planet, not only in the United States.  It seems that the current fight for freedom in Iran was inspired by none other than Pete Hoekstra, John and the Republicans in the House of Representatives last year.   As Hoekstra said today via twitter, “Iranian twitter activity similar to what we did in House last year when Republicans were shut down in the House.”

This was backed up by Texas’s own John Culberson who said, “Good to see Iranian people move mountains w social media, shining sunlight on their repressive govt – Texans support their bid for freedom.”  He then added, “Oppressed minorities includeHouseRepubs: We are using social media to expose repression such as last night’s D clampdown shutting off amends.”

It is amazing to see our plight as a minority party has not been lost on the people of Iran who undoubtedly took inspiration from the Republican attempt to overthrow the opression of Nancy Pelosi.  I took heart to see the way that twitter users immediately came to their aid including many who changed the location on their profiles to Washington DC and their time zone to Eastern in order to confuse Democrats who were trying to use twitter to track down Republican sources of information.  To our brothers in Iran who continue to fight the tyrany of Islam, I wish you good luck in your revolution.   I can assure you that Christianity is worth it as is Democracy.
