A Saudi journalist seeking to encourage free expression was murdered by the prince of Saudi Arabia’s henchmen in cold blood. He went to the Saudi embassy in Turkey to get paperwork for his marriage and was instead met by men that sawed his fingers and head off. The Saudi prince faces no repercussions as Trump does not want to hurt a big weapons sale we are making to them. Freedom from oppression is more important than money. If we allow this to happen to others, it will eventually happen to us too.
If no one stands up for the powerless, how can you expect anyone to stand up for you?
