    Below is the offending tweet (retweet from the embassay in KSA).



    And here's KSA's response

    This article gives some background into the people who have been detained:

    KSA's obviously acting within its rights expelling the Canadian Ambassador. I'm happy that Canada issued a strong statement of condemnation, but ultimately that's all it is. I do like the Saudi counter threat: that they'll meddle in Canadian affairs if this continues. Lol, you've seen Russian twitter bots, wait until you see Saudi twitter bots.

    Good for Canada. No civilized country should have anything to do with those barbarians.

    Fuck em.

    I liked their excuse - but those people were arrested in accordance with our laws! Well a country that prosecutes atheists as terrorists doesn't sound like a place where laws are based on objective morality (lets not argue on the semantics of that term, but agree it's more accurate as an aggregate in more populations than not). It was legal to persecute Jews in Nazi Germany, as it was legal to ship political opponents to the gulag behind the curtain, and it was legal to own people in Saudia Arabia until a few decades ago. So, once again, fuck em.

    Does this mean that Trudeau is no longer a cuck? @Devout Pessimist @Tropodan

    I mean, his government just stood up to the world's largest exporter of terrorism, meanwhile in the US....

    The only thing SA has in more abundance than money is personal incompetence, so no worries.

    The Swedish government took a similar approach some years ago but then the most influential industrial family called the prime minister for a emergency meeting and within hours, a special delegation flew to Saudi Arabia to mend all wounds!

    FUCKING HILARIOUS. Canadians are such cucks.

    They import Islamic culture in bulk to their country, and then the second they condemn an act so barbaric that they cannot stay silent the Muslims tell them to go fuck themselves.

    If only Canadian cucks had such a spine as that of the Islamic countries they wish they were.

    I’m guessing we are going to hear about how Islam is super awesome the next time a Muslim runs down 100 people in a truck. Canadians will lead the charge.
