That Awkward Moment When Saudi Arabia Is More Pro-American Than California

Don’t think I’m going soft on the Saudis. I’ve just not seen a recent image from California where there were this many American flags and none of them were on fire.

But let’s not forget that we are dealing with a corrupt, degenerate, autocratic state where there is no free speech, where universities are run by fanatics who indoctrinate students with radical ideology; where street thugs aligned with the ruling party freely commit acts of violence against opposing views, and whose ruling elite routinely violates the basic rights of Christians and other minorities. Also, Saudi Arabia is pretty bad too.

  1. I just watched an MSLSD anchor explain that BHO groveling on his knees to lick the king’s boot is exactly the same thing as DJT bending over slightly so that the same king could place a medal around his neck without standing on his tiptoes. Just wow.

  2. California & the rest of the Left Coast is only now coming to terms that they’re not the trail-blazing uber respected top dog Libtards throughout the next 8 years & beyond. With their ruling snowflake Brown & Hollywood elite, they’re now on the pooplist of the Federal Govt that they promoted for so many years. They know there’s a danger that many tools, including incarceration of their politicians for not abiding by Federal Strictures, can now be brought to bear against them. As well as “meddling” on their border when the wall is reinforced there. They also know that their internecine flavors of anarchism & non-voting socialist pinkos will rip themselves into with periodic damage to internal organs.

    They can’t even elect a Democratic Party leader now without internal meltdowns & eye scratching. They’re barely an opposition to anything, except America.

  3. I believe in the power of an epiphany. There had to come a point at which Arab dictatorships awakened, holding the tiger by the tail and it suddenly occurred to them that there are better ways to get through the day.

    Salafism holds to a literal, strict and puritanical application of fundamentalist Islam. It began as the Arab tribes started to worry about European colonialism in the 1700’s. After WW! and the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, it grew rapidly. So, almost 100 years later, the Mid-East is in turmoil and it is obvious within the Arab states that Sharia and Jihadism and radical terrorism are a cancer to the future of modernizing Arab states.

    The Saudi government and the Egyptian government in particular can clearly see the realities of Iran and Syria and what is happening in Turkey. Hezbollah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood are clear threats to the existing order. The Saudis, know that they have terrorist funding from within the the House of Saud, but they also know that Iran is a greater threat from outside and that suicidal fanatics running around stirring up Islamist hatred is harder to contain than it is to confront. When the Egyptian, Saudi, and other “civil” governments get their hands on people they believe are working against the state, waterboarding would look like walk in the park.

    The beauty of having an Arab world monitoring center operated by a coalition in Saudi Arabia is that they speak the languages, know the dialects, understand the nuances and have an understanding of who the radicals are and what they up to.

    We will have skepticism, but we are not without experience and and to help in this monitoring process. The Arab coalition has stepped up and we would be fools not to encourage them in every way to clean up Islamism from within.

    Libya has got the attention of Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria. Egypt overcame the stupidity of the Arab Spring anarchy and they are not going to let it happen again. Everyone in the area is quite aware of the tottering in Turkey, the mess in Syria, the fragility of Iraq, the burning mess in Afghanistan and the volatility of Pakistan. And they also know that Iran is just exactly the loony bin which would cause a nuclear fueled Armageddon.

  4. The Saudis must be brought to the table- a minimum of kicking and screaming would be preferred. It’s going to take time, but we need to impress upon them that partnership with the West will require a change of certain attitudes and practices.

    Trump walked a fine line of playing to Saudi egos while still bringing the fact that Saudi Arabia has been the source of many of the world’s woes for the past twenty years to the fore. He played it more delicately than I thought he would. Kudos.

    And yes, the irony of the Saudis waving U.S. flags while supposed U.S. citizens proudly burn it does not escape me.

  5. I think this is Saudi Arabia’s equivalent of the Nobel Peace Price for President Trump’s predecessor. By showing these honors and signs of respect, King Salman is also showing contempt for President Trump’s predecessor who did not (I think) get most of these gestures (certainly not the medal, and maybe not the sword dance or much would have been made over it).

    The Trump Derangement Syndrome is amazing and awful to behold.

    Maybe instead of letting California secede, the rest of us should kick them out.

  6. Hey V the K , I got a chuckle reading this, especially the part about none of the Flags on fire! I don’t always agree with everthing you write , I guess that goes for nearly everybody, but I always love your sense of humor ! I wish you had more time for your other blog as it is probably the only humor site I ever visit that always makes me laugh out loud at least once!
