>To Criminalize Comments On Social Networks

The fear inherent in theocracies/autocracies and the predictable tyranny they use to cope with it.

Religion is as much a virus as a tool, a parasitic force that infects then uses the hosts to infect others. In that context, I can absolutely blame the virus.

If you want to analogise, it's more like alcohol. First The Man takes The Drink, then The Drink takes The Man.


bibleboy69420 t1_j6pjd54 wrote

I think virus is used because it describes spread.

Anyway, you all should stop sinning and fuck more.

Religions don’t kill people, guns do.

Maybe post this in an Iranian subreddit? I’m not sure they’re seeing that here.

The apologists and paid propagandists of the Iranian theocrazy see and invade every Reddit post about Iran.

Iran is really becoming North Korea, but unlike there, the Iranian aren't having it.

HardlyW0rkingHard t1_j6o0u0t wrote

The Islamic Republic are way bigger pieces of shit than any autocratic asshole in China. They are outright terrorists.


valoon4 t1_j6o13pf wrote

Thats because iran uses religion and china is not really religious. Religion makes people even more crazy


HardlyW0rkingHard t1_j6o2hxj wrote

except conversely the islamic republic being crazy religious has made the people of iran less and less religious. only 30% of Iranians identify as shia muslim.


valoon4 t1_j6oyfh5 wrote

Think the same can be said everywhere where religious nuts currently drive crazy, eg in Germany people are leaving the church on mass

Fucking dumb. Instead of fixing it's many problems, Iran just placed the blame on something else.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)

> The Iranian parliament plans to add an article to the Islamic Penal Code that would criminalize "Expressing opinions on social networks," state media reported, in an attempt to further limit freedom of speech.

> The draft legislation says that people who hold "a social, political, scientific and cultural position" and use social media to comment on issues that "Require" an official response will be sentenced to prison if their posts get "Widespread feedback" and "Disrupt public order."

> A growing number of celebrities have used their social media accounts to voice support for protests that have swept Iran for more than four months and criticize the Islamic Republic's brutal response to the wave of public anger.

So in Iran I can't comment on Aisha's age?


archypsych t1_j6opddq wrote

Can they get around this by saying in every comment ’I can’t believe I overheard someone on the street say…..’ and then insert their true views?

Everyone would know.

Trump wanted to criminalize statements made to congress under oath. “Colonel Vindman is a traitor and should be tried for treason” (punishable by death) Along with anyone else who said something he didn’t like. Then he did have him bumped off of the promotion list. The only one in over a thousand nominations. Oh right, sorry, let’s get back Iran.

I’ve literally never read a post about Iran (or any country) on Reddit that doesn’t have Americans in the comments completely ignoring said country and spouting off some shit about the US instead.

Truly amazing how they can always spin it to be about themselves.

It's mostly Iranian trolls astroturfing reddit.

>Volunteers found Iran's propaganda effort on Reddit — but their warnings were ignored

If you look at some users posting here about the US and see their comment history, you'll see every post is about the US or UK ...but the threads they're posting in are about Iran or Russia.

And given reddit's culture hatred for Americans, everyone eats it up.
