Saudi Arabian History Book has Hilarious Image of the King with Yoda. Yes, Really...
Are you feeling down? In need a good laugh? Well, we've got just what you need. Saudi Arabia was throwing together a history textbook. Right next to their storied past of domestic violence, tranny-killing, and other human rights violations? An image of their former king with the venerable Jedi Master Yoda. Yes, really.
The founding of the United Nations was a historic moment that saw leaders from across the planet join together to commit to a more peaceful world.
But most historians don’t remember the Jedi master Yoda being among them.
The Saudi government is scrambling to withdraw a history textbook that accidentally included a doctored photograph of King Faisal sitting next to the little green Star Wars character.
The picture was supposed to illustrate a section on the King’s rule but somehow the book’s editors used a version that showed Yoda perched next to the monarch as he signed the UN charter.
Losing an appendage for this, someone is.
For real though, the Saudis have no reason to be peeved. I dare you to think of a more trustworthy and wise ally to have on your side than Yoda. It was only because of Master Yoda's expert tutelage that Luke Skywalker wasn't lightsabered into pico de gallo by Vader in Billy Dee Williams' cloud castle. If only the Saudis would submit to Yoda's teachings, their country might not be such a crap hole.
Normally when we write about Star Wars, SJWs are complaining about something (see Star Wars Star Likes Ayn Rand. Liberals Lose their Little Minds… and Liberal School Bans Kid’s Star Wars Shirt… Because ‘Violence’?). Not gonna lie, it's a relief to see the galaxy far far away bringing us amusement instead of cringe. Entertaining entertainment? What an idea!
Honestly, the most glaring inaccuracy about the photo isn't the inclusion of Master Yoda. It's the implication Saudi Arabia is on the side of the Jedi. Saudi Arabia is a radical authoritarian regime that treats its citizens like cattle. They're dark side. All day. So, the fix is quite simple, really. Remove Yoda and insert that wrinkled human scrotal sack, Emperor Palpatine, next to the king. Then, put Vader in the background, force-choking a trans-lesbian Christian. Problem solved!
Oh, and a reminder before we go, Star Wars is better than Star Trek.
