IRGC General Mostafa Izadi, the Commander of the Cyber and New Threats Base, said in a February 28, 2020 interview on Channel 5 (Iran) that the West is in a crisis. In an apparent reference to Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, General Izadi elaborated that it is sad that a homosexual can run for President in the United States and even have a chance at winning. He added that the Islamic Revolution is an antecedent for "enormous explosions" in the region and that it seeks to show people the way to liberate humanity.

Mostafa Izadi: "Man is different than animal. The West is in a crisis. Isn't it sad that a candidate for [U.S.] president... I am ashamed to say who... He is a homosexual... [Isn't it sad] that such a man presents his candidacy for president? And on top of that, he stands a chance [to win]... This is real decadence. Our Revolution is the antecedent for enormous explosions in the region. This revolution really seeks to show people the way to liberate humanity."
