The anger that should be directed at those above him is aimed below him. The contempt he should have for the rich is turned into scorn of the poor.

PressTV-Muslim group raps Riyadh’s bid to execute dissident cleric
A family member told Human Rights Watch that the distinguished cleric was being held over his refusal to comply with an order by Saudi authorities to tweet a specific text to support the Saudi-led blockade of Qatar.
