US senator propose special “Iran democracy building” envoy.

May 26, 2007 at 6:28 am (faux democracy promotion)

By making human rights and democracy-building a top priority, we can support the efforts of the Iranian people to end oppression and chart their own future,” Brownback said in a statement.

According to the proposed bill, the special envoy would report directly to the secretary of state on Iran’s human rights record and on democracy building efforts in the Islamic Republic.

The envoy would also serve as a contact point for Iranian opposition groups outside the country, and support multilateral efforts with the United Nations and European Union to promote human rights and political freedom in Iran.

Lets take a look at who this senator is:

Republican Senator (and Presidential Candidate) Sam Brownback is an ultraconservative who has “a 19 percent rating from the American Civil Liberties Union and an “F” grade from the National Education Association…” (As if a guy opposed to Civil Liberties in his own country is really going to promote anything in Iran — of-course, this is all about puppetifying Iran. )

What is especially interesting is that while he rails against the Islamic Republic, he apparently has no problem with “mixing” Christian religion and politics in the US:

Presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback said religion has a strong role to play in America at a time when “an enormous set of cultural and economic issues are on the plate.”

I believe in a robust public square for the celebration of faith. This has been a big, tough issue for us as a nation. I believe in the separation of church and state, but not the removal of faith from the public square. That faith is the central part of the background of the United States.
