In a series of tweets issued Sunday, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, joined liberal voices here, advocating for gun control in the United States.

“In US, 100s are killed every week by homicide for no crime,—no reason—not at the hands of police, as US police brutality is a separate issue. The accessibility of guns leads to homicide; it’s created problems for a country like US, everyone admits, fears, & is concerned about it,” he said.

His solution: Make guns illegal.

“No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What’s the solution? It’s to make guns illegal,” he tweeted.

He wasn’t finished echoing talking points spewed by anti-gun leftists like David Hogg:

“Gun companies,” he added, “are so powerful that House representatives and U.S. senators don’t dare pass prohibition of guns, and U.S. president doesn’t dare speak out, rise against it. This is corruption.”

“Now, why or why would Khamenei want Americans disarmed? Surely he’s just worried about our safety and well-being, right?” Twitchy asked sarcastically.

Ben Shapiro weighed in:

Twitchy went on to say that leftists will probably cheer Khamenei “because he agrees with disarming and making us defenseless.”

Sadly, that’s probably quite true.

Indeed it does.

Twitchy added:

NOW, we can’t say for certain this is actually Khamenei (he’s not verified), and it does read a lot like a letter the DNC would send to raise money so you know what … hrm.

Ben Rhodes, is that you? Not judging and if so, brilliant parody.

Exit question: How long before David Hogg is invited to meet with Iran’s Supreme Leader?
