Netflix Caves to Saudi Government’s Demands, Eliminating Episodes

In Saudi Arabia, there is no such thing as “free speech”. Netflix just endorsed that outlook with this cowardly move.

Saudi ARabia

As the world around us continues to grow more diminutive by the minute, we have the internet to blame.

Now that we, as a species, can communicate with one another instantaneously, our figurative reach is nearly infinite.  Information changes hands in the blink of an eye, allowing the entire globe to share in the cultured omnipotence of the world wide web.

With this power comes the ugly truth, however, with those suffering at the hands of oppressive regimes now able to communicate their dastardly reality back out to the rest of the world.  Such is the case with Saudi Arabia – an incredibly wealthy nation with a horrendous record of human rights abuses.  Thanks to the power of the internet, we can research the Saudi Royal Family until our hearts are content…or until we begin to find ourselves despondent and terrified of what these wealthy thugs are capable of.

For Saudi Arabia, free speech isn’t so free.  This is on account of the Royal Family’s attempts to remain in power amid what would otherwise be terminable offenses.

And, at least for the time being, they seem to be getting away with it.

Netflix yanked an episode of its political comedy series “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” in Saudi Arabia last week after receiving a “valid legal request” from the Saudi government.

The episode, titled “Saudi Arabia,” allegedly violated the kingdom’s local anti-cybercrime law, according to the Financial Times, which first reported the news. It also criticized the United States’ financial connections to Saudi Arabia, the kingdom’s human rights abuses, and the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen. The episode can still be viewed on the show’s official YouTube page and is available in other countries on Netflix.

“We strongly support artistic freedom and removed this episode only in Saudi Arabia after we had received a valid legal request — and to comply with local law,” a Netflix spokesperson said in an email statement to VICE News.

The Saudi Royal Family has been in the international spotlight for some time, following the recent murder and dismemberment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi just weeks ago.

Trump Supporters Are Racists & ‘White Supremacists,’ Says Democrat Senator (Video)

What a silly thing to say!

Not enough people come out and say what needs to be said: Democrats are actively trying to kill the United States of America – period. There’s no two ways around it. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the more obnoxious members of Congress, and possibly just as ignorant as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC. On Monday, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters. And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed on Wednesday that members of White House under President Donald Trump’s administration brainstorm daily on new ways to harm illegal immigrants. Hirono said, “I think that the Trump Administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. That’s what they do and tomorrow they will probably come up with something else.” She added, “These families should not be detained and that’s the bottom line, and so we’re now contemplating thousands and thousands of migrant families being detained, doing irreparable harm to little children. When I was in Dilley, we can’t forget seeing in one of…

NBA Store Refusing to Let People Make Customizable Jerseys That Read ‘FreeHongKong’

‘Defund Police’ is okay, though…

The NBA is heavily dependent on China. The communist nation has as many basketball fans as the United States has people. And if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. But at what cost? From Daily Wire: The National Basketball Association’s online store blocked people from being able to order customizable jerseys that featured “FreeHongKong” as the name on the back of the Jersey. Sports commentator Clay Travis posted a video to Twitter that showed the NBA blocking the jersey when the name entered was “FreeHongKong” but not when the name was “FreeHongKonu” thus showing that it had nothing to do with the number of characters on the jersey.
