Hasan Minhaj has a new political comedy series titled “Patriot Act”. Minhaj tackles his controversial material with humor and the perspective to credibly discuss it without sounding racist. In episode two he addresses the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and the humanitarian catastrophe in the impoverished Republic of Yemen. Minhaj warns America to reconsider their attitude toward Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
This Episode has been shortened to highlight a few important observations. You can go to Netflix to watch this full episode, complete with all the jokes!
While discussing the recent history involving the United States and Saudi Arabia, Manhaj says: “Saudi Arabia was basically the boy band manager of 9/11. They didn’t write the songs, but they helped get the group together.” Adding that, “Whenever Saudi Arabia does something wrong, Muslims have to live with the consequences.”
It is time more people spoke out against the regime of al-Saud, and stop condoning the cruelty and killing inside Yemen. To learn the truth about Saudi Arabia you can read this report I wrote a few years ago, KSA vs ISIS: A Jihadist By Any Other Name Is Still A Wahhabi,
