Dr. Pipes,

It seems that the clueless woke members of the legacy media have no clue what to make of the uprising in Iran, after all "Hijab wearing is a choice, and it empowers women, and the Mullahs are wise old men, and who are we to judge other cultures and people etc..."

Now in this link you will find a tweet from some clueless MSNBC reporter who is described as: Iranian American. However, her last name is Armenian. She informs her followers about a conversation that she had with some Hijabi woman about the events in Iran. And she wrote that she was chatting with the hijabi woman about: "the parallel conversations on women's rights taking place in Iran and around the world."!


Dear Woke Journos: The plight of women in Iran has nothing in common with the so called "women's struggle" in the US.

Dear readers: You think we should tell the MSNBC reporter why are we witnessing this uprising by the people of Iran?
