When the Syrian Arab Spring began in 2011, there were hundreds of videos pouring out of Syria every day & posted on social media showing protests of thousands tearing down posters of Assad which are a necessary part of dictatorship & the cult of personality that supports it. It wasn’t long before those videos from Syrians were shouted down by propaganda led by the fascist journal Global Research, socialist & antiwar groups losing their minds to support the ‘war on terror’, a chorus of professional propagandists masking their Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, & fascism behind progressive rhetoric, especially Palestinian solidarity, to champion the Assad dictatorship.

This video from protests going on now shows the exact same political phenomenon going on now in Iran as youth tear down cult of personality images of terrorist-in-chief Qassem Ssuleimani.
