This shocking video sent from Tehran today is another horrific reminder that the cruelty of Iran's security forces knows no bounds. Amid a crisis of impunity, they're given free rein to brutally beat & shoot protesters. @UN_HRC must urgently investigate these crimes.#مهسا_امینی pic.twitter.com/IYQNewPslf

The leaders of the West themselves don’t even try to deny that they are running a fake vagina revolution in Iran.
They are literally doing a George Floyd on these people.
Videos on social media showing Iranian security forces severely beating protesters have gone viral as anger grows at a widening crackdown with arrests of prominent figures from rappers to economists and lawyers aimed at ending seven weeks of unrest.
Protests ignited by the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini on Sept. 16 after her arrest for inappropriate attire have shaken Iran’s clerical establishment with people from all layers of society demanding wholesale political change.
The nationwide demonstrations which have called for the death of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei are posing one of the boldest challenges since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iranian leaders have blamed the crisis on the United States and other Western powers, a narrative few Iranians believe.
There must be a poll or something, right?
Reuters can’t just say “few Iranians believe” with no evidence, right?
Khamenei said on Wednesday that U.S. officials who support protests are “shameless”, state media reported.
“Those who think the U.S. is an untouchable power are wrong,” Khamenei said. “It is completely vulnerable as seen with current events.”
Defying a harsh warning by the chief of the widely feared elite Revolutionary Guards, Iranians have risked their lives and arrest by remaining in the street despite a bloody crackdown.
One video dated Oct. 22 that went viral on social media showed a dozen riot police beating a man at night on a street in southern Tehran. One of the officers on a motorbike ran him over then another shot him at close range. Reuters could not verify the authenticity of the footage.
Yeah, a lot of the footage seems staged.

They can just fake it with crisis actors and post it on social media to rile the people up worse. The footage is so low quality (for no reason), it would be easy to just fake it on a computer.
“This shocking video sent from Tehran today is another horrific reminder that the cruelty of Iran’s security forces knows no bounds,” Amnesty International said on Twitter about the Oct. 22 video.
Iran’s police issued a communique on Tuesday saying that a special order was issued to examine the details of a video showing police officers beating a citizen, without giving any detail on the video in question.
“The police does not approve of harsh and unconventional treatment, the offending police officers will certainly be dealt with according to the law,” the statement read, according to Tasnim news agency.
Is this going to work?
I dunno, maybe. No one can say either way. The revolutions have not worked in China and Russia, but they might work in Iran.
