Oakville Trafalgar high school


0:22. thumbs up to parents who stood up to this.

i am actually OK with him teaching in the high school as long as:

- he dresses appropriately and professionally by covering up the nips
- the students are not under free speech restrictions to criticize him
- his deranged sexuality, like religion, is kept OUT of the classroom

I haven't seen much about the Iranian women's protests. Here's some quick background from wiki
The Mahsa Amini protests are an ongoing series of protests and civil unrest against the government of Iran that began in Tehran on 16 September 2022. The protests began as a reaction to the death of Mahsa Amini (Persian: مهسا امینی), a 22-year-old Iranian woman who died while in police custody. According to eyewitnesses, she was beaten by the Guidance Patrol, the Islamic "morality police" of Iran, who accused her of wearing an "improper" hijab in violation of Iran's mandatory hijab law.[8] Iranian police have denied that Amini was beaten while she was in custody.[9]

The Mahsa Amini protests began hours after her death in Tehran. Protests first began at the hospital where Amini was treated, and then quickly spread to other cities, firstly in Amini's home province of Kurdistan, including in Saqqez, Sanandaj, Divandarreh, Baneh and Bijar.[10][11] In response to these demonstrations, beginning on 19 September the Iranian government implemented regional shutdowns of Internet access. As protests grew, a widespread Internet blackout was imposed along with nationwide restrictions on social media.[12][13]

As of 23 September 2022, at least fifty protestors have been killed as a result of the government's intervention into the protests,[5] making the protests the deadliest since the 2019–2020 protests that resulted in more than 1,500 fatalities.[14] The government's response to the protests has largely been condemned, and the United States Department of the Treasury has sanctioned the Guidance Patrol and several high-ranking Iranian officials.
At first glance it appears to be justified outrage over a woman beaten to death, but some things are giving me pause. Primarily, the fact that western governments are supporting the protests. We've seen how they never support any of the anti v@x or anti lockdown protests, but they will support blm type protests.


CountriesEdit
  • Canada Canada: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced his government's support for the protesters, calling on the Iranian government to "end its repression of freedom of expression – and to end the ongoing harassment of, and discrimination against, women."[104] Foreign minister Mélanie Joly called for "a full and complete investigation into the regime's actions" in the aftermath of Amini's death.[105]
  • Turkey Turkey: Presidential Spokesperson İbrahim Kalın said he was saddened by the death of Mahsa Amini and that Iran needs to find a balanced way to respect one's free will and maintain the public order.[106] Demonstrations occurred in several Turkish cities, including a protest of a group of Iranians in front of the Iranian Consulate in Istanbul.[107][108]
  • United States United States: During his floor speech to the United Nations General Assembly, President Joe Biden offered solidarity to the protesters, imploring them to "secure their basic rights".[109] Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned the Iranian government in response to Amini's death, tweeting that "[Amini's] death is unforgiveable. We will continue to hold Iranian officials accountable for such human rights abuses".[110] Later Blinken would announce that the US Government would be issuing a General License allowing US companies to ignore telecommunications sanctions against Iran in order to assist the protesters in attaining internet access.[111] Relpying to Blinken's tweet, Elon Musk implied that he would be activating Starlink to help keep the internet up in Iran.[53] Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote, "Solidarity with the courageous women and allies in Iran protesting for their freedom. Mahsa Amini was senselessly murdered".[112] Senator Amy Klobuchar tweeted "The women of Iran are taking to the streets, risking their lives for their rights and freedoms. I am with you, we are with you."[113] Democratic U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen told VOA's Persian Service, "What's happening in Iran, generally, is an outrageous treatment of its people. And then you have this, these attacks on Iranian women … a woman who was killed for not conforming" to a religious edict "with respect to her hair in a veil."[114]

I guess the question is, are these protests legit? Is this an attempt to overthrow the iranian regime to further western/globalist/elite purposes? Did the young woman in question even die/is this a false flag?

Gateway pundit's article is calling it a "revolution".
The uprisings in Iran continue as protestors have started calling it a “Revolution” and claiming certain towns and neighborhoods in Tehran have been liberated from the Islamic dictatorship. Police, Bassiji militia and Revolutionary guards have started shooting randomly at protestors. At least 50 are believed dead.
...
Demonstrators are said to have liberated several towns in the Kurdish north. In Oshnavieh, “Regime forces have fled and all IRGC/Basij bases are burning in flames”, far-left People’s Mujaheddin activist Heshmat Alavi wrote. Army units are said to be deploying to Oshnavieh to quell the unrest.

I’m gay and I completely love and support this and what you’re doing Alex. This is f--ing adult entertainment for people 18 years of age or older. What the f--k are these parents thinking?! It’s demented. And it has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with not overwhelming a child’s mind.


Push Against the Zeitgeist
Who is this guy. He’s making the rest of us feel ashamed that we aren’t all doing this. What an inspiration you are Alex! We should all be this gutsy, after all, not even the police are protecting children.

Looking like a yes... george soros all over it




By Dr. Marwa Osman

The unfortunate death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman, in police custody in the capital Tehran last week sparked angry protests inside and outside the country, to the point that the incident, which is still under investigation, has caught the imagination of people and media worldwide.


Amini, who hailed from the city of Saqqez in Iran’s western Kurdistan province, was in Tehran to meet her relatives when she was detained and taken to the headquarters of the moral security police over violation of the Islamic dress code.

As CCTV footage released by the police later showed Mahsa fainted inside the police office, without any physical contact, after which she was transferred to a Tehran hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Her tragic death drew grief and shock across the country. On social media, Persian tweets with the hashtag "#MahsaAmini" became a global trend. Massive demonstrations were held in Tehran and other major Iranian cities in protest against her mysterious death.

Top Iranian authorities, including President Ebrahim Raeisi, stepped in immediately and ordered thorough probes into the incident and assured protesters that the truth shall prevail.

However, that didn’t allay the concerns of some so-called “protesters,” who upped the ante. Soon, as we saw, protests turned into deadly riots, with unruly mobs going on the rampage in different cities.

They attacked public properties, torched ambulances, vandalized banks and mosques, set ablaze the flag of the Islamic Republic, and fatally stabbed some policemen patrolling the streets.

By the time this piece was filed, the death toll from the countrywide riots had jumped to 41. Western regimes and the corporate mainstream Western media continue to cheer for the hoodlums.

Azizullah Maleki, the police chief in Iran's northern Gilan province, stated that more than 739 rioters had been arrested in different parts of the province in the wake of Amini’s death.

Iran’s state-run news agency IRNA quoted the police chief as saying that a large cache of weapons, ammunition, and explosives were seized from the possession of rioters during the arrests, pointing to a foreign-backed conspiracy.

If, as the Western mainstream media is portraying, these rioters are peaceful protestors calling for justice and accountability, why would they hurt other civilians, slit the throats of police officers, vandalize public property, or carry weapons, ammunition, and explosives?

Take for instance the events of January 6, 2021, in Washington. In comparison to how the US ruthlessly dealt with unarmed protesters on Capitol grounds that day, Iranian forces have exercised utmost restraint in dealing with rioters who have brazenly taken the law into their hands, stabbing police officers and dragging them in the streets with video evidence of their crimes documented online.


Just two days ago, one of those who broke into the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was sentenced to four years in prison. That man did not carry an assault weapon, nor did he slit the throat of a police officer. But the Western mainstream media wants Iranian authorities to allow the armed rioters to run amok.

Apart from rumors and conflicting narratives doing the rounds on the internet over what some activists have called the "politically appetizing issue," a series of global condemnations began pouring in against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The White House termed Amini's death a "flagrant and appalling violation of human rights," despite video evidence of her collapsing on her own inside the police office, without any force.

The Director General of Forensic Medicine in Tehran, Dr. Mehdi Forozche, declared in his report that there were no signs of beating or wounds as well as no bleeding or rupture in her internal organs, ruling out any foul play in her death.

Yet, you see the White House blatantly playing the “human rights card” and assuming the moral high ground while the US government has itself spent more than $1.5 billion to settle claims of police misconduct involving thousands of officers repeatedly accused of wrongdoing.

This, after the disturbing trend of fatal police shootings in the United States is only increasing year after year, with a total of 730 civilians having been shot, 71 of them Black, as of September 8, 2022. In 2021, there were 1,055 fatal police shootings, and in 2020 around 1,020.

Are we really surprised with the American regime’s opportunism and the use of human rights as a tool to instigate “regime change” color revolutions in countries like the Islamic Republic of Iran that refuse to submit to the US political, economic, and military belligerence?

Are we surprised that Western-affiliated and funded news websites and social media platforms are inundated with articles, blogs, and podcasts directing public opinion against Iran with direct incitement and clear mobilization, and discussion of public and individual freedoms in Tehran? That’s an easy NO.

Irrespective of the fact that investigations into the tragic death of Amini are underway, the media coverage in the West and some Arab countries has continued to focus on the incident itself, distorting and twisting it to suit their sinister agendas, while saying nothing about the ongoing probes.

They continue to incite the unruly and blood-thirsty mobs against the Iranian police and the government while imaging that the innocent blood being spilled on the streets will bring an end to the Islamic Revolution and reinstall a pro-West regime in Tehran. That’s pure wishful thinking.

Western media continues to portray the protests-turned-riots in Iran as a sign of fundamental socio-political change in the country, suggesting that the rioters constitute the majority of people acting on their own.

Those burning the Iranian flag, vandalizing public property, attacking ambulances, or raising the slogans of “regime change” are a handful of thugs working for the Western agencies.

The majority are those who proudly took to the streets in Tehran and other major Iranian cities on Friday, reaffirming their sacred pledge to the ideals of the Islamic Revolution and the martyrs who gave their blood to keep the revolution alive. Their blood is the red line.

Could it even be possible this young woman "died suddenly" and her death is being opportunistically used?

As to why now? I dont really keep up on the whole russia-ukraine thing but apparently iran just supplied the russians with a bunch of drones.
