I welcome the protest in Egypt against the two-faced Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi whose power grab has now met with protest from the street.  The folks protesting against him have guts as he has tried to make himself above the law.  Sorry ATW righties, the protest is led by socialists, young students, liberals and (brace yourselves) the legal profession.

If Egypt is going emerge from the darkness then we have to support those who are pushing back on this power grab.  Revolution doesn’t always go the right way and this one needs some good news.

  1. The news from Egypt is grim no matter how you look at it. The Constituent Assembly is dominated by Islamists, and is at loggerheads with the judiciary, which is dominated by old Mubarak partisans.
    Although there are also very many supporters of liberal democracy around, including very many of those with economic clout, they just don’t make up the single and strong political unit that their country now needs.

    It is interesting to see that all the above lefties just did not get it back then at the start of the Arab Spring; just like everywhere else where they just seem unable to understand and reflect on political events in a realistic manner.

    Of course, I wish them good luck. Just a shame the events they helped instigate are now back-firing on them in a way they were completely unable to see.

  3. Right.

    So when patriots protest against Obama, who has egregiously set himself above the law on a number of occasions, they’re Right Wing “extremists”.

    When Leftists (we’ll see if that’s true or not) in Cairo go further and use violence, they “have guts”.

    Who has the greater case for running the Caudillo from his palace – Egyptians or American patriots? Morsi has proposed a new constitution which extends his powers. Obamses gave himself the power to order anyone’s death, anywhere, without restraint.

    Quite clearly it’s American patriots who have the greater moral and political case.

  4. Pete – I don’t support violence against the Morsi regime, rather legitimate protest. And while I have issues with certain of the recent laws here i nthe US you undermine your case by overstating it.

    David – The Adminsitration did not support Morsi’s power grab.
