'It's unbelievable. You would imagine this would be a pretty good time for everybody to be on the same page'

House Democrats refused Tuesday to formally support anti-government protesters in Iran and to condemn the Islamic regime's  shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy,  R-Calif., proposed the resolution, which was blocked by Democrats before any vote could be taken, the Washington Times reported.

"What a disappointment — Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protesters," McCarthy wrote on Twitter.

"This is not the time for partisan politics. This should be a time for the U.S. Congress to speak with one voice to condemn an Iranian regime that kills its own people."

Fox News reported conservative commentator Ben Shapiro said Democrats and members of the media are "caught between a rock and a hard place."

"The narrative of the Obama administration was that this regime has moderated in the aftermath of the Iran agreement ... that this regime was now contained," he said. "So if there are actual protesters being shot in the streets because they are protesting an evil dictatorial regime, Nancy Pelosi doesn't have a narrative anymore."
