On November 4, 2019, the 40th anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Kerman TV (Iran) aired an anti-American animation that depicted Uncle Sam as a greedy man who drinks oil, wages war, and commands terrorists and gives them medals. Uncle Sam is shown cowering when he hears an Iranian crowd chant “Death to America!”, and the animation ends with him collapsing and being dragged away by the Grim Reaper. A well-known anti-American song performed by children played over the animation. The lyrics say: “The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws… You [steal] from every harvest… You are a demon of oppression… You contain the venom of tragedy… You are the Devil incarnate… You are the enemy of humanity.”

 

Chanting: Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America!

Lyrics: America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America, shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

With the flame of oppression, you have set the world on fire.

You have completely disrupted the security and order in the world.

You [steal] from every harvest and you are in the heart of every garden.

The fire of your oppression is a bolt of lightning full of grief.

Your great wealth is the grief of the masses.

Your grudge has stabbed [everyone in the] chest using the dagger of agony.

You are a world-devouring thief.

You are a demon of oppression.

You are a scorpion from Hell.

You are a cunning fox.

You are full of injustice and disloyalty.

You have no love or loyalty.

You contain the venom of calamity.

You do not have the nectar of purity.

There has never been oppression such as [yours].

You are the cause of all strife.

You have no peace and tranquility.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

The fire of your war exists in the entire universe.

The ears of the world are tired of the harsh beat of your drums.

You are Satan incarnate.

You are the enemy of humanity.

The borders of your culture are hate.

Rebellion is your nature.

Destruction is your handiwork.

The world has grown dark because of your cheating and scheming.

You are the enemy of every nation.

You are the cause of all humiliation.

You are the shadow of every horror.

You are the strife of every nation.
