Genetic Disease in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA)

This is a delicate topic, but it has a singular point to make - a point about the cognitive dissonance of those citizens who cling to Hillary because feminism. These Fem-Dems go along with all our shitty foreign policies because Hillary. Case in point, the free pass that the medieval, misogynist theocracy of KSA has gotten from the US for 70 years.
