The Saudi regime led by Jared Kushner’s good friend MbS has carried out a mass execution of protesters.

Rep. Tlaib is right, the Saud regime has been arresting and torturing children with impunity for years.
This is appalling. We have to stop selling the Saudis weapons and supporting this brutality. https://t.co/4GIOhFsLdN— Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan Omar)1556069298.0
Rep. Omar is right, we should be ending any support for this brutal, oppressive regime. They are no ally to us.

The Saudi regime knows that their oil wealth has bought them friends in Washington. This was true during the Reagan administration and definitely with the two Bushes, whose family profited mightily from their association with the Saudi. In the Trump administration they have found a group whose greed and amorality comes close to matching their own. That is why MbS and his henchmen feel emboldened enough to carry out this brutal public torture and killing of protesters. Jared and Donald will cover it up for them.
AOC, Omar, Presley and Tlaib are breaking a lot of taboos in DC, shining a light on so many things that have long been swept under the rug. They are among an entire generation of young women who are inspiring us to stand up for what we believe.
