Mariah Carey ignores Muslim women’s protests, plays Saudi Arabia

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

Pop music superstar Mariah Carey recently became the biggest star yet to perform in Saudi Arabia. The sharia kingdom has been slowly loosening its restrictions on entertainment from the West, but this show of “modernity” hasn’t quite trickled down to Saudi women — who protested Carey’s concert.


As Billboard reported:

Al-Najjar is a co-founder of Women for Rights in Saudi Arabia, or WARSA, which launched a petition calling on Carey to boycott the country. The petition aimed to publicly pressure Carey because “she has power to stand for women ... as an artist and as a female,” Al-Najjar said.

Activists are tweeting at Carey directly, urging her to take notice of the prominent Saudi women’s rights activists imprisoned since May who had long campaigned for social changes and women’s empowerment. The women, who include activists in their 20s as well as mothers, grandmothers and retired professors, have been accused of vague national security violations in connection to their human rights work.

Despite all these protests from her fellow females, Carey went on with the concert. So much for girl power!

Well said, Ben… It’s clear that the Left are eating themselves alive.. Same as every other “identifiable” group that has “White Male Privilege” in their sites… We are winning.. That being said, please slow down. You are not in competition with Paul Joseph Watson. I had to backtrack several times in order to make out your words and understand your point. And in many cases, you’re speaking to the Choir here. Many of us have been watching this unfold since the 60’s…

Money talks and it shows loyalty will always follow the money.

Perhaps your finest show yet, Brother Ben. But on the other hand who wouldn’t want to perform in a country where they murder and dismember dissonant journalistic voices? It shows her to be a brave leftist voice of reason.

Apparently Saudi women live in the WARSA ghetto.
