The Iranian Redneck
The Iranian Redneck is the political commentary page of Professor Darren Sherkat, who studies religion and politics. Professor Sherkat had deep Iranian Redneck roots. His father was in the Mossadeq Youth, and was on a scholarship promoted by Mossadeq when the CIA kidnapped overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran and imprisoned and killed Mossadeq. Sherkat’s mother is a good-old Oklahoma fundamentalist redneck! Mom’s family helped found what is now the Assembly of God, the largest white Pentecostal denomination in the US. It doesn’t matter which side of the spectrum you’re talking shit about, I’m calling bullshit.
