Why the Left is Saudi Arabia’s greatest ally

Lefist environmental groups in the US and Canada have confirmed what was long suspected by admitting that the Saudi’s were their ally in the fight against the Keystone XL pipeline.

Given UK environmental groups’ erroneous arguments against hydraulic fracturing, could the same coalition exist here?

Saudi Arabia has an atrocious human rights record. Women and minorities have few rights and public capital punishment occurs frequently, one might assume this would make Leftist groups and the Saudis automatic enemies. But the Saudis and Western liberals have an issue in common that make these two groups unlikely allies — both despise energy independence.

    Le grand remplacement !
    Leftarded cultural Marxists are in love with Georg Lukacs who asked: ‘Who will save us (Marxists) from European civilization?’
    The answer is: ‘The noble savages will help Marxism take over Europe and the West by population replacement! Brilliant!’
    Justin is the chief of Canada’s cultural Marxists and Mulcair (the next likely suspect) is shunted aside in spite of the fact he tries to look like Lenin!
