A famous Iranian actor has lashed out at the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei saying at least try to be a “personable dictator”.
Hamid Farrokhnejad, in a post on his Instagram page compared Ali Khamenei with other dictators such as Francisco Franco, Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini, saying he is “mentally ill” just like his “colleagues”.
According to Farrokhnejad, “personable” dictators accept their fate when they get close to the end, but the “impersonable” ones, choose the costly way that leads to high casualties.
“Over time, all dictators have the illusion of assuming themselves as God, and they think they are absolutely right and eternal…but they are all mentally ill,” he added.
He also warned that the second group will die very severely, as people will take revenge from their subordinates and appointees due to the anger of the people who suffered many casualties.
Since the uprising in Iran, artists in various fields have publicly expressed solidarity with the protesters and criticized the Islamic Republic and its leaders in an unprecedented manner.
Over the past three months, the literature used to address Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Iran has been unprecedented, full of insults and outright rejection.
The US-based Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) announced in its latest report that from September 17 until Tuesday, December 13, at least 493 protestors have been killed in Iran, of which at least 68 were minors.
