Salaam to everyone

This is my first post, hopefully not last (admins don't ban me) 

I'm new to Islam. After leaving the Hari krishna cult, which has given me nothing but misery. 

Lately, I've been finding it difficult to actually get a sense of belonging. I'd identify myself as a Muslim, in terms of my actions and where I get information from, I'd say more towards the Sunni persuasion. 

I do YouTube videos just for fun. But lately, it's become serious. Shocking, in terms of my views and opinions I've attracted a lot of support from the Shia community and have been shunned and even had death threats from people who identify themselves as Sunni. 

I speak against Wahhabi and Salafism. I want Shia people to give me their thoughts on Wahhabis and Salafis. Are there any Shia's who agree or support them? It seems like some Sunnis do but they would never identify themselves as Salafi but will be the first to scream and shout that they are Sunnis.

Here is my video, please do go through the comments. Some are laughable, some are really stupid and some really good ones who support my ideas. Am I doing a wrong this but exposing Saudi Arabia? Am I incorrect in my understanding of Islam? Does Islam actually state you can't criticize people of Saudi Arabia because Mecca and Madinah sits with them? 

I do hope the above makes sense. 

Regards

Salam and welcome to shiachat!

Shia Islam always encourages and sometimes requires us to fight against or at least condemn oppressors and tyrants. It's unlikely that you'll find any Shia who agree with wahhabi ideology.

Big No! to their ideological paths of intolerance, literal interpretations, heretical suppositions and hard belted 1st gear discrimination of others. The Wahabis/salafies, a 400 hundred year old movement sparked by both internal hypocrisy and external facilitation claims it stands for the revivalism of Islam. Which is ridiculous since It was hardly crippled for more than a millennium prior. 

Bro one piece of advice. If you are challenging misconceptions or the nature of such and such, do it intellectually rather than name calling or slander. You want to build bridges to awaken those who blindly follow and in doing so if you rub them up the wrong way you won't be able to channel through.  Another thing, be careful bro! 'Some' of these people are simply thugs and will not think twice to cause you harm.
