Ronn is Iranian. The "death to" chants started during the Islamic revolution (death to Shah), and is now really symbolic and used mostly by the regime's supporters as they think they are still revolting against the enemy. They even use it every now and then for the leaders of the green movement who've been under house arrest since 2009. This type of showing discontent (death to chants or burning flags) is too childish even for school children but I'd call it treasonous given how it has been used and is still used in the US to convince the public that Iran deserves what it gets. They even mentioned it in the senate lol.
Wasn't aware @Ronn is Iranian, apologies bud. And there I was going on
It really does a disservice to the Iranians in regard to world opinion and as I said I don't think they literally (mostly) mean it in the genocidal sense.
