The story is about three people arrested in Saudi Arabia for posting YouTube videos.
But it’s much deeper than that.
As far as I am concerned these fuckers deserve to be arrested.
It’s a well known fact that many Saudis think it is beneath them to actually do any physical labor. When I was stationed at Riyadh you would see no Saudi sweeping streets, taking out garbage, doing construction, etc. They all wanted “elitist” jobs: managers, supervisors, doctors, accountants, etc. The menial labor was for Filipinos or other immigrants.
I guess “social justice” is now a big hit in the Kingdom of perverts and worshippers of pedophile prophets.
I wonder why our democrats aren’t protesting in solidarity with them?
“We are fed up, and you still blame those who carry out bombings,” the man says, urging the king to give Saudis money to improve their lives.
“Give us our money… we do not want to beg… You and your children are playing with this money,” he said about Saudi’s oil wealth in the 30-second video during which he held up his identification card.
In another video, a man identifying himself as Abdullah bin Othman charged that “corruption is widespread” in Saudi Arabia while “people are hungry and oppressed.”
Othman urged other Saudis to go online and post their comments “so that our voices could reach the king”.
In a third video, a man calling himself Saud al-Harbi said many of his compatriots are in need of “housing” and a “decent life”.
“Please listen to us. We want housing, we want a decent life,” he said, apparently addressing Saudi authorities.
And he added: “Do not force people to take to the streets.”
Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy where protests are banned.
