Thank God it’s Friday.
This week has been filled with wall-to-wall with terrible news, from the apparent suicide of Robin Williams to what looks like the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine to the frightening clashes between law enforcement officials and the residents of Ferguson, Mo., over the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown.
So this week couldn’t have ended at a better time.
Of course, there’s no way we get out of this without part of the news cycle devolving into ridiculous parody. And for that, we turn to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader.
Khamenei, whose own country is responsible for countless, detestable crimes against humanity, decided that he’d get himself a slice of that sweet, sweet Ferguson pie by tweeting the following:
Look at how US govt treats black community! It's not about 50-100 years ago but it's about today! #Ferguson— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) August 15, 2014
Racial discrimination's still a dilemma in US. Still ppl are unsecure for having dark skins.The way police treat them confirms it. #Ferguson— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) August 15, 2014
As of this writing, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s dictator king Kim Jong-Un have yet to weigh in on Ferguson (although the Kremlin's propaganda network Russia Today has been giving it wall-to-wall coverage). We eagerly await their input.
