Classic! To bad it couldn’t of been Ahmadinejad, It would of been cool watching them lynch him..Ramin Mehmanparast, spokesman for Ahmadinejad, gets attacked by refugee Iranians on streets of New York.
He’s being called a murderer…then chants of “terrorist”…they’re calling him a “bastard.” “Get lost and go back into your hotel…What are you doing in New York you sick criminal?”
“Yeah, you scared sh*t run away and go stand next to the police.”

Visitor from Arkansas punches Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson in gut on Manhattan street following anti-U.S. tirade

An Arkansas man landed a blow for democracy Wednesday — right to the gut of an Iranian official.
Gregory Nelson received cheers and handshakes from anti-Iran protesters after slugging Foreign Ministry mouthpiece Ramin Mehmanparast on 48th St. near Second Ave.
“It felt really good,” said Nelson, 50, after delivering his shot to the Iranian bigwig’s stomach. “It wasn’t that hard, but he felt it.”
Nelson was flanked by a horde of protesters, many of them Iranian immigrants demanding democracy in their homeland, when Mehmanparast walked past after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s United Nations speech.
The former Army National Guard member, doing his best Mike Tyson impression, saw an opening and swung at the spokesman’s midsection before he could escape.
“We don’t usually conduct ourselves like that, but he’s a murderer,” said the bearded, ponytailed Nelson. “That whole regime, everybody is responsible for the murders that go on.”
The widower came up from his Fayetteville, Ark., home to join thousands of boisterous demonstrators gathered outside the UN as Ahmadinejad spoke inside to the General Assembly.
Ahmadinejad flew back Wednesday afternoon.
The protesters — some with fake blood on their hands, others in their dancing shoes — demanded a democratic Iran at the rally in the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza.
“I am here because I imagine an Iranian government for freedom,” said Ali Rabiee, 50, a native of Iran who stood shoulder to shoulder with his fellow protesters.
