Where are the champions of … what did they call it? Oh yes, the “Arab Spring” — that great euphemism for the oppressive islamic supremacist movement that sought to overthrow secular rule for the vicious and brutal and sharia.
Here, now, when a genuine movement for freedom takes hold in a viciously oppressive Muslim country, the left stands with the murderers and oppressors. The media, aligned with the jihad force, will never report fairly or even remotely accurately on these matters, as they are the tip of the spear of the anti-freedom, anti-American fifth column in this country.
As for the Iranian regime blocking social media/internet, the left does the same thing to us here in America.

Iran tries to censor coverage of protests by media based abroad

In the background on the continuing protests across Iran, the Persian-language media based outside the country, have become the major source of alternative news and information for Iranians.
Now, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has condemned the Iranian government’s attempt to silence coverage of the current wave of protests by Persian-language media overseas.
Domestic media outlets which are under strict government control have ignored the anti-government protests in more than 100 cities throughout the country during the past eight days, in which scoes of people have been killed and around 17,000 have been reportedly arrested, including several citizen-journalists.
Letter to OFCOM
The letter’s two main targets are Manoto, a privately-owned TV channel based in London, and BBC Persian, the state-owned BBC’s Persian-language TV channel, which many Iranian activists and intellectuals nonetheless criticize for not distancing itself sufficiently from the Iranian government line.
“After disrupting Internet access and blocking social networks, the Islamic Republic of Iran is using the need to combat calls for violence and support for terrorism as a pretext for silencing the last sources of freely and independently reported news and information used by many Iranians,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran/Afghanistan desk.
RSF has previously criticized the attempts by the Iranian judicial system and intelligence services to influence the Persian-language sections of international media outlets by putting pressure on Iranian journalists based abroad and on their families still in Iran.
