One half of the legendary country music duo Brooks & Dunn made his profound feelings on presidential nominee Hillary Clinton known in a fiery, and incredibly direct, status to his Facebook page. Ronnie Dunn created a post reading,
“The Saudi Royal family has a “pay to play” deal with the Wahabi ruling sect of Islam. The Wahabi sect (one of the most conservatively radical sects of Islam in existence) literally participates in the Saudi balance of power and controls the practice of religion AND the EDUCATION SYSTEM in Saudi Arabia.
…..15 of the 19 terrorists who flew the planes into the Twin Towers were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and the others were from the United Arab Emirates.
Why didn’t the U.S. go after the Saudis ?
The answer is obvious. ‘looking at the Clinton Foundation’s donor list, Saudi Arabia gave between $10 million and $25 million. But the foundation reported the Saudi money in December 2008, and the amount hasn’t changed since. [sic] Jul 11, 2016.'”
Dunn boldly admits his clearly non-wavering belief that Clinton played a key role in the aversion of Saudi retaliation in light of her tremendously large donations from the Saudi Arabia kingdom to her foundation, ranging from $10 million to $25 million.
According to the New York Times,
“The Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department — before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary — criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues. The countries include Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Brunei and Algeria.”
However, Dunn is clearly not one to stir up controversy and abandon ship, seeing that he avidly responded to the hundreds of appalled commenters who weren’t afraid to challenge the award winning vocalist. While one woman wrote, “OH MY GOD Ronnie Dunn – STOP SPREADING this propaganda…” Dunn was quick to stand his ground by providing the Facebooker with a link to a [Winner Of the Pulitzer Prize] Politifact written article to back up his strong claims. To no surprise, the debates continued with banter and support of both standpoints and opinions.
How do you feel about Dunn’s political upheaval?
