Obama yearns to be America's Khomeini and have anniversaries of his presidency celebrated and memorialized with cardboard cut outs, if he is not there to do it in person.

Just like Khomeini destroyed Iran financially and culturally through his moronic inexperience, despicable Obama is treading in his footsteps with purpose to destroy America and be memorialized in Islamic and Communist annals as "the One" - who turned the whole world into a pit of chaos, misery and death.

He has so much blood on his hands from the deaths he caused by his destabilizing policies in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Syria to please and increasing the power of his Moslem Brotherhood masters and now raising the resurging number of violent deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan - by premature and ill-thought out troop withdrawals - only to please his selfish, narcissistic mindsets - with NONE of these pull backs favored by his Generals!

Though never having served nor had anything to do with the military, he arrogantly "knows best". Best for his destructive intentions, not for Iraq, Afghanistan nor America.

Here is how he would like Americans to revere him. The true "cardboard" man, with no documented past, who like Khomeini, who had NO Persian/Iranian blood in his veins from either parent, has also usurped the Oval Office. With huge help from our enemies like George Soros, Islamic Iran and virulent , brutal, violent Islamic groups and movements. And who now supports and approves activist pressures from Islamic organizations like CAIR and a bevy of others set up by the terrorist Moslem Brotherhood (founders of Al Qaeda) INSIDE the USA.

America seems to be waking up but not yet finding a way around the protections and obstacles Oba-Hussein -Khomeini has built by ABUSING our culture and laws and turning those against ourselves and ignoring our Constitution.

On February 1, 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini -- the leader of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution -- returned triumphantly to Tehran on an Air France flight from Paris after 14 years in exile.

Now, 33 years later, that return was reenacted in a bizarre ceremony that saw guards carrying a giant cardboard cutout of Khomeini down the stairs of a passenger plane and a waiting crowd paying their respects to "him."

Original Return Enlargement

Iranians have been faced with many unusual and absurd events in the past three decades of the rule of the clerics. The February 1 ceremony, however, may have topped them all.

A series of pictures posted by the semi-official Mehr news agency shows two solemn looking guards carrying a cardboard Khomeini as others give the serious-looking, white-bearded cleric a military salute. A marching band is seen playing music in the background.

Another cardboard Khomeini -- this one smiling and seated -- popped up at a ceremony attended by Education Minister Hamid Reza Haj Babayi and other officials to mark the ayatollah's return to the Refah School, where he set up his headquarters 33 years ago. This cardboard Khomeini sat there while the others -- some looking a bit uncomfortable next to him -- drank tea and chatted.

The ceremonies with the cardboard Khomeini were aimed at glorifying an important moment in Iran’s modern history. But they appear to have had the opposite effect, producing several jokes and mocking comments among Iranians.

Upon returning to Tehran, Khomeini was asked by a foreign reporter how he felt about coming back to his homeland after so many years. He famously replied, “Nothing.”

One joke making the rounds of social media parodies that well-known exchange:

Khomeini’s cardboard cutout is asked how he feels about returning to Iran. "Khomeini was a human and even he didn’t have any feelings. I’m just a cardboard cutout," he says.

"We don't have any Akbar here."
"Hi, guys. Very nice meeting you. But have you seen Akbar, by any chance? Hashemi?"

Those sitting next to him pretend they have no idea who "Akbar" is and try to change the subject. “We don’t have any Akbar here.” They add: “We also don’t have [Mir Hossein Musavi] and [Mehdi Karrubi]. Let's change the topic. How are you?”

​​Khomeini’s cardboard cutout arrived in a very different Iran than the one the real Khomeini promised Iranians. He talked of freedom and justice, but the gap between the rich and poor has been widening and the country is frequently criticized by international human rights groups for its repressive policies.

The revolutionary fervor is long gone amid widespread disillusionment.


More than three decades after the 1979 revolution, Iran has repressed many of the children and founding fathers of the revolution with whom Khomeini helped establish the Islamic state.

They include Khomeini’s protege, former prime minister turned opposition leader Mir Hossein Musavi, who has been under house arrest since last February. Reformist cleric and opposition leader Mehdi Karrubi, one of the founding fathers of the revolution, is also under house arrest.

Former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has been isolated and sidelined because of his rivalry with President Mahmud Ahmadinejad and his criticism of the 2009 postelection crackdown.

Some of Khomeini’s relatives have also come under pressure over their support for the opposition movement.

A man in Tehran told RFE/RL that the cardboard Khomeini ceremonies are a “huge charade.”

"Is this how [Iranian authorities] want to regain legitimacy? By creating a cardboard idol?” he asked.
