EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Steve King: Iranians Must Continue Street Protests to Win Back Their Country
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Steve King (R-IA) tells Breitbart News that history—in particular, the dismantling of German’s Berlin Wall which signified the end of Communism in that country—should serve as a guide for the Iranian people protesting to take back their country.
“I would encourage the Iranian people to take an inspiration from those who have achieved their freedom,” King told Breitbart News. “And, certainly, it’s the Germans and the people who lived on the other side of the Iron Curtain.”
King held up a piece of the Berlin Wall taken from the Communist side on September 12, 1990, that he keeps in his office. In addition to being taken out of the wall on his late father’s last birthday, King said that piece of the Berlin Wall “represents the single most significant event in my lifetime: when the Iron Curtain came crashing down. And this is a physical component of that Iron Curtain,” he said.
