trump's critics

Amid all the attempts by bankrupt or State funded media groups (CNN, the BBC et al) and conformist, establishment or leftist politicians (Lyndsey Graham, Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton et al) to label Donald Trump a fascist, perhaps the most hilarious statement came from a Saudi princeling called Alwaleed Bin Talal.
Alwaleed stated: "Mr Trump you are a disgrace to America. Resign from the election as you will not win."
Ah yes. Political debate Saudi style.
The princeling says "get out" and you go.
Not how we do things here.
Not yet anyway.
Personally I would say being called a disgrace by a Saudi princeling is one of the greatest honours a human being could receive.
But don't just take my word for it.
A little broader context is in order.
Alwaleed Bin Talal is reputed to have a personal fortune of 32 billion dollars which he earned by being born into the Saudi royal family. He announced a few months ago that he intends to donate his entire fortune to charity. Hopefully not a Mosque building charity, eh Alwaleed.
Saudi Arabia has exported Wahabbi Islam around the world through a system of sponsored Mosques in every country on every continent.
Saudi Arabia does not allow its citizens to be Christian or to convert to Christianity or to build churches in any form.
It is illegal in Saudi Arabia for women to drive cars or to walk in public unaccompanied by a male relative. This week the Saudis allowed women to vote in local elections for the first time ever.
During a fire at a girl's school in Saudi Arabia several years ago, police beat fleeing teenage girls back into the burning building because they were not fully clothed.
Fifteen of the girls burned to death.
You know when you think of it, Donald Trump has shown great restraint in all these matters.
As have we all.
That's changing.
