    While state-sponsored propaganda usually takes the form of “news” reports and government statements, Iranian government has gone even further than that in their attempts to smear the MEK, including staging anti-MEK propaganda exhibitions at school and even airing network dramas to defame the MEK. Let’s look at some of those now in more detail.

    ANTI-MEK PROPAGANDA EXHIBITIONS
    After the 2009 uprising, which was largely led by the young, educated Iranians, the government decided to target the younger generation of Iranians to stop them from engaging in political activism or joining the MEK. Thus the idea of propaganda exhibitions was born.

    Between April 2010 and December 2012, more than 120 anti-MEK exhibitions were organized in 36 cities across Iran, with the intention of “familiarising the younger generation and especially students with the ‘crimes’ of the [MEK].”

    In these exhibitions, the government lied about the MEK, claiming the group had a “long history of violence and terror”, although they did correctly cite that the MEK played a key role in the 2009 protests.

    These exhibitions decreased from 2013 onwards, but the Government does still sponsor events to slander the MEK at schools and places of learning.

    The MEK was the group who took our Americans hostage when they stormed the Embassy. They were known as a terroist org. but now they are "good terrorists" since they are anti the Iran regime.

    The US government treats the militia the same way, well not the GOP who are pro guns. The GOP love the militias.

    Ya.
    Ya. They were de-listed in 2012. They wanted the American hostages killed rather than released. Then they broke with the current government. Now they want to overthrow the current government and have themselves installed.

    This is going to be interesting.

    MEK is a far left radical terrorist Marxist organization that wants to turn Iran into a secular Communist controlled state.

    They will never garner the support of the Iranian people with their atheistic Marxist ideology. .... :cool:
