Wanna piss off the Saudis? Watch this.
Ezra Levant (a gentleman you may remember from a few years ago who was being sued for reprinting the Mo-in-a-Bomb-Turban cartoons – and who gave a very fine defense of himself, resulting in the lawsuit being Dismissed!) discusses this ad, and the Saudis’ legal response, in detail in his show. It is a 40-minute-long clip, but just the first 5 minutes gives a great overview of how the Saudis are threatening Canadian companies.
Now, the Bo Dizzle is in the position of approving a pipeline from these Canadian oil sand fields to the Gulf of Mexico – where we have all these refineries. But there are a bunch of feeble-minded protestors out in front of the White House each day, trying to ensure the proposal is not implemented. So there needs to be pressure on the White House to approve the pipeline, and provide Ethical Oil for our consumption.
