I thought the media had already hit an all-time low (repeatedly) in the last few years, but this? The death of a terrorist mastermind responsible for hundreds of American deaths is such a loss to the world. They can barely contain their grief.

I want statements from the Presley estate and the royal family, please? Was the loss of IRGC General Qasem Soleimani on par with the loss of Elvis or Princess Diana? How about Keith Ledger, John McCain, Ted Kennedy, Michael Jackson, Prince (the purple one)? Is there a red line on these comparisons?
Is mass murderer Qasem Soleimani the Left’s Abraham Lincoln?
Move over, Che! Soleimani gear will soon be surging into your space in the local coffee bars, Antifa war rooms, narrative dungeons, the Apple Store, and other progressive hangouts. And it’s only right that he should.
Che tortured women, gays, dissidents, and was a murdering psychopath. Soleimani has been killing Americans, Israelis, Muslims, Christians, Iranians, and anyone else for years. He’s the perfect martyr. A man with more money and influence than Osama Bin Laden, whose death (different President) was a huge victory for humanity.
Nobody on the American left is wearing Bin Laden shirts but mark my words. Some enterprising socialist is thinking about “capitalizing” on the opportunity to make a quick buck on the pity party over a dead Iranian general with more blood on his hands than even Peace-Prize winning Barack “drone-strikes killed four American citizens” Obama. Including invoking the AUMF to kill this American without a trial.
No one is wearing his face on a t-shirt either to the best of my knowledge. Not in public.
