Yesterday, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, took to Twitter and proceeded to rant about US policies. He stated that the US commits terrible atrocities against its people; even going as far as to incite Ferguson into his hypocritical tirade. He doubled down using the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag. I’m not joking.
Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, lecturing the US about how we treat our citizens? Let’s take a look at what the little troll had to say. Brace yourself.
“US has entered into war against its own people.” Khameni seems so genuine, I almost shed a baby tear. I was waiting for the #HandsUpDontShoot hashtag. I guess Al Sharpton hasn’t had a chance to call him yet; being on a hunger strike and all. I’m sure Khamenei watched videos of people marching and chanting, “What do we want? Dead Cops!” What would happen to the Iranian people if they protested in the street calling for the death of Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan? I’m guessing it wouldn’t go well.
I wonder if he knows how Google works. I found many documented atrocities committed by the Iranian government against their people, sorted by year, starting in 2011.

IHRDC (Iran Human Rights Documentation Center) Chart of Executions by the Islamic Republic of Iran – 2014
This chart documents executions of people by the Islamic Republic of Iran beginning in January 2014. The official announcements are noted but, as the Iranian government does not announce many executions, it is difficult to know the exact number.
IHRDC is thus unable to confirm the unofficial reports but has provided links to PDFs of the original sources. It will update this list on a regular basis.
Last Updated 1-7-2015
Total in 2014: 721
Announced By Government in 2014: 268
Full execution chart: HERE
In 2014 alone, Iran executed 721 Iranian citizens that we know of, yet Khamenei has the audacity to claim the US is at war with its own people? According to a New York Times article from 2013, Iran performed public hangings of citizens convicted of petty crimes, from petty theft to the more serious crime of murder. Although “Most hangings take place inside prisons, according to Iranian judicial officials and international human rights organizations.” Did I forget to mention Iran executes children too? All documented by the IHRDC HERE.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, I’ve got news for you #IranianLivesMatter too! All lives matter! Stop killing your own people! Stop threatening to annihilate Israel! Most importantly, stop financing and supporting terrorist organizations that kill thousands of innocents annually. Another piece of advice; clean your own house before you point fingers at the greatest nation in the world!
