Ron Paul Institute Calls Attention to Neocon Ties of Iran Riots Leader

The Ron Paul Institute recently threw shade at an assertion that a Iranian opposition figure is “leading” what the US Deep State is labeling as a “freedom” movement in Iran. 

For context, Iran has witnessed wide-scale protests and protests over the death of an Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, while she was detained in Tehran by Iranian morality police for failing to comply with hijab protocols was the incident that apparently sparked all of this unrest.

Iranian authorities claimed that Amini was not subjected to mistreatment by law enforcement.

In a Twitter post that RPI published on September 25, 2022, it called attention to the close relations Masih Alinejad — a political commentator for Voice of America (VOA)  — has with neoconservative figures in American politics such as former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. 

“Doesn’t it strike anyone as strange that the ‘leader’ of this ‘freedom’ movement in Iran is a US government employee and bosom buddy of the neocons? But hey, sure, it’s totally legit…,” RPI stated in its Twitter post.

The demonstrations and riots have received widespread praise across the Collective West. According to a Press TV report, these riots have turned “deadly” as “many Iranian cities have seen armed rioters beating and killing police officers, public works servants as well as ordinary civilians while vandalizing banks and other public and private properties.” 

Several organizations and institutions such the Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan, Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), and the Islamic militant organization MKO have been largely taking advantage of the unrest sweeping across Iran to try to undermine the Iranian regime. These entities are largely viewed as subversive organizations by the Iranian state. 

Several foreign media outlets such as the United Kingdom-based BBC and the Saudi-backed Iran International have been putting out coverage of events in Iran in a way to discredit the regime as much as possible.

Initially, there were peaceful protests surrounding the causes of Amini’s death. However, foreign and domestic actors used the unrest to encourage further destabilization across the country.

Investigations are currently being conducted to determine the cause of Amini’s death. 

Regardless of the circumstances of Amini’s death, external actors such as the US and Israel will be working to destabilize the Middle Eastern country, which has been a target of the rabid Zionists and the American neoconservatives.

The RPI is one of the few voices of foreign policy restraint left in the US. It represents the vision of former congressman Ron Paul who distinguished himself from the rest of his Republican colleagues by calling for a restrained foreign policy approach to Iran. Since the 1950s, the US has meddled too much in Iran’s internal affairs. This has resulted in major blowback, largely in the form of the 1979 Islamic Revolution and Iran’s subsequent foreign policy maneuvers across the Middle East that have made America’s satrapies in Israel and Saudi Arabia uncomfortable. 

Iran poses no threat to the US and there is no pressing national interest that justifies meddling in its internal affairs, much less using military action against it. It remains to be seen if US policymakers will ever get this through their thick skulls. 

Knowing how DC works, it’s very unlikely that they will get the memo. They’ll eventually come to their senses once they get upended by an America First insurgency. 

Instead of regime change in Iran, we need regime change at home.
