    Not sure if they're an Iran protests thread....In any case, it is a pretty big deal.
    Hopefully the first of of many wins for women's rights in Iran. That will further embolden the movement. The struggle continues.

    wonderful news. the Mail is shit source, but it's on the bbc too ...

    Iran's morality police, which is tasked with enforcing the country's Islamic dress code, is being disbanded, the country's attorney general says.

    Mohammad Jafar Montazeri's comments, yet to be confirmed by other agencies, were made at an event on Sunday.

    Iran has seen months of protests over the death of a young woman in custody. Mahsa Amini had been detained by the morality police for allegedly breaking strict rules on head coverings.

    Mr Montazeri was at a religious conference when he was asked if the morality police was being disbanded. "The morality police had nothing to do with the judiciary and have been shut down from where they were set up," he said.

    Yeah.....Having said that, I think & hope the Iranian will take this with a grain of salt though and keep up the pressure.

    Yeah, that was it. I dunno, I can't get that excited about it - it's like hearing that A-Ha is going to be touring the county fairs once again next summer, playing "Take On Me" over and over again. There's always going to be demand for their one hit.

    Someon should point out to these morons that the phrase "******** joe biden" was first recorded at a literal antifa rally in Portland, Oregon on inauguration day, 2012.

    In his defense, Antifa is brave enough to chant FJB. MAGAts have to say "Let's go Brandon", as in the wrapping paper Seth is selling.

    Nope.

    What happened was there was a NASCAR race where the fans were chanting FJB. The winner of the race was named Brandon. The announcer retconned FJB into LGB, and a meme was born.

    To me, LGB is like Dark Brandon. It's for fun. Let 'em have their fun.

    Yeah, that pissed me off, I'm a big fan of Brandon Brown as a local Va boy, and now I can't wear any of his merch, especially one commemorating his first win because those yahoos tarnished it with their stupid chanting (I'd like to think they were banned from the facility, but I probably know better).
    The announcer/pit reporter just tried to calm down/ignore the chants and let Brandon enjoy his win, and suddenly she was elevated to a journalist reporting fake news by those same douche-bags and a hateful meme was born. Go 'Meracca

    You know, I overlooked a lot of red flags for the woman I was dating...

    But when the bottles of "Trump Wine" started getting uncorked at Thanksgiving...
