Commerce Secretary Impressed There Were No Protesters In Saudi Arabia... Where Protesting Is Punishable By Death

Wow, I really have to say, very impressed with the lack of protesting in Saudi Arabia. Really impressed with the warm welcome we received. Really impressed with, while in the U.S. there is constant negativity from the fake news media and cries of concern from the biased electorate, there was no sign of it in Saudi Arabia. None. Almost felt like everyone was ordered to be nice. Almost like the looming threat of decapitation and/or crucifixion was deterring anyone and everyone from showing any sign of disapproval for anything they witnessed. It really was amazing.

SourceSix years ago, in the midst of the popular uprisings in the Middle East known as the Arab Spring, the Saudi Council of Senior Religious Scholars issued a decree essentially banning public protest in the country. The following February, a 17-year-old named Ali al-Nimr was arrested for participating in an anti-government protest. Two years later, he was sentenced to death by beheading and crucifixion and remains on death row.

Hmmm, incredible there were no protesters. Amazing what happens when you get away from the unfair media.
