Irish Mirror:

Saudi Arabia has asked Disney to cut an LGBTQ scene from Doctor Strange 2 before it can be screened in the Middle Eastern country.

Nawaf Alsabhan, Saudi Arabia’s general supervisor of cinema classification, said: “It’s just her talking about her moms, because she has two moms. Being in the Middle East, it’s very tough to pass something like this.”

Boy how the mighty have fallen. We’ve covered Disney before here, and their neverending rampage against childhood innocence. The Saudis now are putting their foot down and doing what Republicans are there to not do.

He added: “We sent it to the distributor, and the distributor sent it to Disney, and Disney has told us they are not willing.”

Although Saudi officials are not happy, Alsabhan said the movie had not been banned outright.

He told news agency Agence France-Presse: “It will never be banned. There’s no reason to ban the film. It’s a simple edit… so far they have refused. But we haven’t closed the door. We’re still trying.”

Get ready for little Benny Shapiro to swoop in and do his little “get woke go broke,” routine. Of course Disney is a media empire precisely because they exist in a winner take all field. And beyond that, I’m sure Republicans will be outraged, just outraged that Saudi Arabia is censoring pervert garbage in films now.

In 2017 Saudi Arabia lifted a ban on cinemas, which had been in place since the early 1980s.

It was part of a series of social reforms spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to shake up the deeply conservative kingdom.

Right, this guy. Didn’t he order some Turkish journalist to be killed or something?

Dohain Institute:

After eighteen days of denial and misinformation, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has finally admitted that Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in its Istanbul Consulate. Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate on 2 October to access regular consular services without ever coming back out. According to Turkish sources, Khashoggi was lured into the consulate where he was met with a team of 15 Saudi agents, who had travelled from Riyadh in the aim of killing the journalist. His dismembered body is yet to be located. 

Current evidence suggests that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may be directly implicated in the assassination of Khashoggi, a US permanent resident and columnist for The Washington Post.

Weird, isn’t it, how the psychopath is also all about “liberalizing,” Saudi Arabia. I’m sure the removal of this pervert garbage is a relic of old institutional power that he’ll eventually be getting rid of.
