On his Friday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh ran a parody radio ad mocking the Sultan of Brunei’s ownership of two landmark Los Angeles hotels, the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air.
Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah recently announced the start of a new criminal code based on Sharia law, which includes punishments as such as amputation and stoning.
Partial transcript as follows:
When visiting Los Angeles, his majesty the most respected Sultan of Brunei invites you to stay at a luxurious Sharia Arms Hotel, formerly the Beverly Hill Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air. But be forewarned – inappropriate activities will bring swift and certain punishment.
Simple theft of a towel or washcloth is punishable by death as is letting your wife drive or talk to the concierge. Drinking alcoholic beverages from the mini bar, also punishable by death. However, watching inappropriate in-room movies is punishable by cutting off your hand.”
Homosexuality is punishable by more homosexuality, then death.
