We sometimes forget how lucky we are to live in a democracy and I think
we often take our freedoms for granted. Unfortunately, not all
countries run like ours, and not all people have the freedom to say
what they think, wear what they want, choose their religion. I don’t
tend to get into politics that much and I’m a total workaholic, so I’m
always busy, but I try to keep up on the news (Twitter helps!) and I
even received an e-mail from an Iranian-American fan who wanted to
spread awareness of what’s going on in Iran. As an Armenian-American, I
definitely feel this is something that should be addressed.

If
you’ve seen any of the shocking videos online of the police violence
against the protesters (I’ve seen pics but I can’t bring myself to
watch the videos) you’ve seen how the Iranian people are protesting for
what they believe in, fighting for their freedoms and being brutally
punished and attacked for it by police. This kind of violence against
innocent civilians is sickening. President Obama said he was appalled
by what was going on and honestly, how can you not be?! Shima, my fan
who e-mailed me, said that the Iranian government is bringing in
officers from outside of Iran to silence the protesters because Iran’s
own guards are refusing to hurt their own people. I admire these
Iranian guards for standing up for themselves, and I admire the Iranian
people for fighting for their freedoms.

Some people think we
shouldn’t meddle with other country’s politics, but I don’t think it’s
about enforcing our own beliefs on them, it’s about helping people
fight for what they want for their own country. In our country protests
and demonstrations happen everyday, peacefully. We are ssooo lucky to
have the right to speak up for ourselves and for what we believe in. I
just hope the people or Iran will some day soon have the right to do
the same.

    Thank you kim, for bringing this horrifying news out on your website. I actually was wondering why you didn’t even mention this news on your site till you did and I am happy you did.

    I am a Iranian girl 27 years old (just like Neda). All my family still lives in Iran..and I am scared, I can’t sleep day and night and I am worried that something might happen to them. We Iranians are asking for help from other countries

    Well said Kim! I value this statement very much! and i think a lot of people do too. xoxo

  7. jennsixx  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

    I would like to say Kim, you are a complete phoney to write this post about Iran. I’m Armenian-American myself, I never seen you make a post about How Obama did not recognize the Armenian Genocide or even explain how Turkey denies it or explain it, FU

    • Kim Kardashian  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

      I have spoken of the Armenian Genocide numerous times, so maybe pay attention to my blogs because I have spoken about it on here a lot!

      • ColorofWood  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

        Oh, Kim, it’s interesting to see that you are speaking out on issues involving Iran and the Armenian Genocide. Just out of curiosity, what other issues do you feel passionatley about? I hope you post those soon, as well. Thanx, doll!

      • jennsixx  |   Posted on Jun 28th, 2009

        I never said you never mentioned the Armenian genocide, I said “I never seen you make a post about How Obama did not recognize the Armenian Genocide or even explain how Turkey denies it or explain it”

        Re-read my posts!

      This is what I meant about KIM being doomed when she does,and doesn’t about saying something.So many of you hateful bloggers are on here,just to swoop down, and pluck and moan about everything she says and doesn’t say. GET A LIFE. Kim, I am sure takes her time, and is very careful about the thoughts she puts into her entry’s. Unlike, to me what it seems, many of you just typing away without thinking. Only feeling hatred towards someone for no reason, other than not having the life, or looks she has. You jealous, hateful bloggers come down on her, because she doesn’t share the same opinion, or lack of one it seems to me in this case.
      I sadly say all of you; have a right to your opinion. Kim does as well. But, for you to be so aggressive and attack Kim, for her own…. Is only the thoughts of the ignorant, and to be ignorant of one’s TRUE ignorance is the malady of the ignorant.
      I cannot go to this site, and sit idly by and not say anything. This is not in my makeup. To me, to give attention though, to your ignorance is not something I want to do either. However, to not say anything is something, I truly cannot do. This quote says it all. ” You think that your silence on certain topics, perhaps in the face of injustice, or unkindness, or mean-spiritedness, causes others to think you agree, and I could never agree with hatred, or jealously.

        exactly! i am dammed if i do and dammed if i don’t , i can’t win. all I can do is just be me and address issues i want. i do take the time to think and vocalize what i want to say, so thank you again Michelle for all of your support!

        • MICHELLE  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

          Your more than welcome,Kim. I also, want to Thank you. Your replies were unexpected. I know your busy, and it was so sweet for you to take the time out to say something back.
          I will of course always have your back. Not just as a fan, but as one human being, standing up for the rights for another. I can’t stand ugliness and I regretfully say …there is so much on this site towards you, and anyone who stands up for you. Stay strong, and continue to be who you are. God Bless!

      • Miami Princess  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

        I am sure Kim is appreciative of your wonderful comments! You seem to have a personality that doesn’t want the drama and wish everyone could love and respect each other. Kim thanks for giving us an understanding of what’s goin on. Well said!

        • MICHELLE  |   Posted on Jun 26th, 2009

          Thank You again Miami. I am about peace.

          “If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.”
          A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.

          “I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.”

    People are getting killed and arrested in Turkey for just saying the Armenian genocide happened and you say not one word about that because people may not like you for it. Its “safe” and “trendy” to talk about Iran. You are so FAKE!!!!!!!!!
