Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said, in a November 19, 2022 address that aired on Channel 1 (Iran), that the fact that Iran is advancing and flourishing is "intolerable and unbearable" for the West and for the "arrogant" United States. He said that all the pressure Iran is facing is because it has been advancing and because it has stood up to the West's "bullying," and he criticized all American presidents since Jimmy Carter for opposing Iran. He also referred to U.S. President Joe Biden as a "demented guy," and told the audience to "turn" all their shouts against America. The audience chanted: "Death to America!"

The Islamic Republic Is "Advancing And Flourishing... This Is Intolerable And Unbearable For The West"
Ali Khamenei: "The problem that the West and the arrogant [United Stated] have with the Islamic Republic is that it is advancing and flourishing. Everyone has seen this advancement and is acknowledging it. This is intolerable and unbearable for the West. Their problem is that Iran is advancing. Had we not made any progress, had we not demonstrated a strong presence in the region, had our voices quivered while facing America and the arrogant [West], and had we been willing to accept their bullying and aggression, then all this pressure [on Iran] would have subsided. Obviously, in such a case, they would have come here and taken over, but the sanctions, the pressure, and so forth, would have subsided.
"America is at the forefront of this campaign by the enemy.

All U.S. Presidents Since Carter, "Without Exception, Have Confronted The Islamic Republic"
"All the American presidents, in the decades that have passed since the revolution, have fought the Islamic Republic on that front. It does not matter where they are now. Some of them have dropped dead, and some have been cast in the garbage bin of history, even if still alive: starting with the Democrats Carter, Clinton, and Obama, and endling with the Republicans Reagan and Bush.
"This includes the previous dope [Trump] and this poor demented incumbent guy who wants to save Iran and the Iranians. All of them, without exception, have confronted the Islamic Republic.
"Anyone Who Fails To See The Enemy's Desires And Who Cooperates With It Must Be Woken Up"
"Anyone who fails to see the enemy's desires and who cooperates with it must be woken up and must be told: Be sure not to become the enemy's mouthpiece. Like Imam [Khomeini] said: Turn every shout of yours against America."
Crowd: "Death to America! Death to America!"
