Exercising free speech with Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s Twitter feed

http://twitter.com/#!/brandondarby/status/251743807870230528

As Twitchy reported, earlier today the Israel embassy in USA sent an awesome mocking tweet to “Iran’s Supreme Leader’s” Twitter feed. See, Iran’s news agency had reported an Onion article. As news. Hilarious.

Twitter users swiftly jumped on the mock-wagon and began introducing themselves to Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei via his Twitter account. Free speech, baby! While our president may not think that the future belongs to free speech, American citizens do.

.@IsraelinUSA @khamenei_ir no worries, Iran. We have sh*t for brains in our govt doing stupid things daily. Btw, most Americans LOVE Israel.

@IsraelinUSA @khamenei_ir No biggie Iran. Obama cult members frequently make similar mistakes quoting parody websites.

— IleanaE. (@FilleGitane) September 28, 2012

Gracious introductions were made.

Hey, what's up? Jew here. Just wanted to say hi. @khamenei_ir

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) September 28, 2012

@NathanWurtzel @khamenei_ir Gay here, Hi also.

— Paddy Manning ن (@PaddyJManning) September 28, 2012

Of course, the Left wouldn’t want you to “offend” him by insulting him and hurting his feelings with your icky Jewish and gay cooties.

The ridicule continues.

I like that I have 2,704 more followers than Iran's official news agency. I'm on your tail, too, @khamenei_ir! #usausausa

— Kyle Ryan (@Kyle_Ryan) September 28, 2012

Jesus loves you, @khamenei_ir.

— ن Miké Ramoné ن (@ThePantau) September 28, 2012

"Supreme Leader" lol. The only way you'd be supreme is if Taco Bell put sour cream on you and wrapped you in a tortilla. @khamenei_ir

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) September 28, 2012

I’m sorry @khamenei_ir but Diana Ross will forever be the only Supremes leader. http://t.co/fAWKzWSz

— Lisa Scherr (@BBUMH) September 28, 2012

Plse let us know views on Anti-Christian & Anti-Semitic Events as well PRT @khamenei_ir: Supreme Leader's View on Anti-Islam Events …

— Call me Crazy, Lois. (@Mermaz) September 28, 2012

Sad and Anti-Israel #FF @khamenei_ir @chavezcandanga @BarackObama

— Brandon Darby (@brandondarby) September 28, 2012

And, win:

Kinda surprised that @khamenei_ir isn't at least following @allahpundit
