Iran destroys 100,000 ‘morally damaging’ satellite dishes

“The truth is that most satellite channels… deviate the society’s morality and culture,” he said at the event according to Basij News.

“What these televisions really achieve is increased divorce, addiction and insecurity in society.”

Naghdi added that a total of one million Iranians had already voluntarily handed over their satellite apparatuses to authorities.

  • Obama planned on giving this mad theocratic state the bomb in 2008.

    The middle class in Iran for years was happy to have secret Satellite Dishs so they could have quiet western styled lives behind closed doors. The women wore western style clothes, had a few alcoholic drinks, watched some western TV, had western music. This is what kept them happy and quiet and off the streets. It’s why the Green Revolution failed. It’s why there’s never been a practical uprising. The authorities are either being arrogant or the problem is far deeper than they let on. In either case this could cascade fairly quickly either towards massive repression or massive anarchy.
