Millions of people are familiar with the South Korean music video “Gangnam Style,” credited by the Guiness Book of World Records as the most liked in YouTube history. The song — which features the refrain “Hey, sexy lady!” — has inspired countless parodies. Now Saudi Arabia adds itself to the list.
There’s only one problem: The video has no ladies.
While it shouldn’t surprise anyone that a country that made news over mere reports (later debunked) that it was planning a separate city for working women would omit females from a music video, the optics of “Saudi Gangnam” speak volumes. Even our liberal moral relativist friends can learn a lesson on Shariah Islam by watching it.
Hollywood celebrities such as Obama spokeswoman Eva Longoria, who wants women voters to worry about Mitt Romney, probably never read former Somali-Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s book “Infidel” — and probably doesn’t know that the author needs security around the clock. But on some level watching “Saudi Gangnam” would tell her everything she needs to know about the real war on women.
