Typical lefties. The two hikers freed from Iran turn out to be flaming liberals that bash America. The hikers’ friend, Shon Meckfessel, appeared on Democracy Now! and had this to say about Shane Bauer, one of the freed hikers.
“He (Shane) immediately called for the release of all political prisoners, all unjustly detained prisoners in America and in Iran.” (at the 4:23 mark).
The website Hyscience has an excellent summary of the backgrounds of Bauer and the other freed hiker, Josh Fattal. Both attended the flaming liberal UC Berkeley. Bauer is a freelance photojournalist and journalist who has worked for such leftist propaganda rags as Mother Jones, The National, and Berkeley mouthpiece Pacifica News Service.
Josh Fattal, is an environmental activist “tree-hugger” and leftist “educator” who was involved prior to this incident with a project in Aprovecho, Oregon, where he explored and promoted “sustainable living”.
Perhaps that should have stayed in Iran.
