The sorry state of politics, and the oppression of women in particular, in Iran, is a nightmare ignored by an agenda-driven media in the west.
In politics, most media organizations are obsessed with continuing the “true” intellectual orthodoxy, i.e., restoration or maintenance of Leftist governments.
Added now, with religious fervor, is the “extraordinary popular delusion” of “climate change” hysteria.
Meanwhile in Iran, as reported by Masih Alinejad, a young woman set herself on fire after being sentenced to 6 months in prison for daring to sneak into a soccer stadium.
I doubt if this incident was unusual. The desperation and hopelessness many women in Iran must endure eventually becomes too much for some. Can you imagine deciding that setting yourself on fire and dying is a better option than living in a hell under the Mullahs’ regime?
This kind of thing is passed over by western media and politicians. As a minimum, our political leaders and “guardians of democracy,” the media, ought to regularly be denouncing these rogue regimes rather than treating them with moral equivalency under the rubric of “multiculturalism,” while women burn.
