In yet another slap in the face of the Iranian regime, they’re one and only female Olympic medalist has defected to the West and blamed their misogynist oppression:
Iran’s sole female Olympic medalist, Kimia Alizadeh, has announced that she’s permanently left her country for Europe.
“Let me start with a greeting, a farewell or condolences,” the 21-year-old wrote in an Instagram post explaining why she was defecting. “I am one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran who they have been playing with for years.”
Alizadeh became the first Iranian woman to win an Olympic medal after claiming bronze in the 57kg category of Taekwondo at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
In her note she specifically cites the Islamic regime as the reason she’s leaving her country:
Affectionately known in Iran as “The Tsunami,” Alizadeh announced she was leaving her birth country amid searing criticism of the regime in Tehran.
“They took me wherever they wanted. I wore whatever they said. Every sentence they ordered me to say, I repeated. Whenever they saw fit, they exploited me,” she wrote, adding that credit for her success always went to those in charge.
“I wasn’t important to them. None of us mattered to them, we were tools,” Alizadeh added, explaining that while the regime celebrated her medals, it criticized the sport she had chosen: “The virtue of a woman is not to stretch her legs!”
Wow. This will certainly help the protesters against the regime who are rising up right now. But you can also bet that the media will report this as little as possible out of fear that it will help Trump…
Here’s a video of her Olympic victories:
I hope she goes a country where she can be safe from the terrorist regime….
