Police brutality, Hate crime, Homophobia and Human Rights abuse in Iran

As riots exploded in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, Iran was quick to capitalize on that as a means to score cheap political points against the US. Their foreign minister called it "a harrowing demonstration of systematic racism".

Which brings me to the question: Does Iran have any moral ground to stand on, considering its record in human rights abuses?

And would their friends in Lebanon dare openly criticize the Iranian police like they do the US administration?

    :lol::lol::lol: I love it how they act like they’re a super-power or something... fakers gonna fake!

    It's not what they are doing - Iran is trying to show US that we all are just the same.

    Of course it's Iranian BS because we are not murdering protesters (or rioters).

    However, it would never hurt to try to create equivalency even if it's phony equivalency.

    But it’s more about how both countries treat protestors. America has power, and thus doesn’t need to project a false image of itself.

    Iran and China do. They don’t have the power, but still find it necessary to act like they do. Bad things always happen when you attempt to push above your weight.

    Iran moved from a dictatorship under the shah into a theocracy under the mullahs.

    Iran is not a world champion of free speech or liberalism.

    The Americans have negative impacts all over the world; however we used to say that they are heavy handed on us but respect democracy and human rights at home. Apparently they do not...

    Iran does not have power on international arena, but at home they still can project plenty of power.
    And they do, but they also attempting to control how the rest of the World perceive their murdering thousands of their people.

    China is World power, dependent on US and EU markets, but World power none the less.

    BTW, for me "World power" implies the financial power, not military - everything rests on money.

    It only begs the question, what Iran would've been under Mosaddegh - socialist dictatorship?
