Anti-Morsi Protests in Egypt are... Massive
— Ace

Watch the video below.

@pspoole, who's liveblogging the demonstrations at PJM.

4:37p Tom Blumer at Newsbusters notes that the US establishment media is ignoring for the most part the anti-Obama, anti-American sentiment of the Tamarod protests.


...

3:09p NBC is reporting that “tens of thousands” are out protesting against Morsi. Are they delusional or just outright lying?

2:58p Media reports are coming in with estimates of the crowd sizes across Egypt. Al-Masry Al-Youm cites experts that more than 17 million are in the streets today.

If they were looking to make a big appeal to the military to side with the majority, I think they accomplished that.

If they were hoping to get Obama's Palace Guards at NBC to notice a huge revolt against Obama's pro-Muslim Brotherhood foreign policy, then of course they failed.

22 OT:  Fox showing Chucky Shooster saying Senate amnesty bill will make it through the House a Republican RINO from VA says a House bill will make it though the House to a joint committee.  And Fox anchor says Boner has stated over and over the House will pass a bill and sent it to committee.


So despite the House Majority wanting no bill the RINOs are intent on getting something through and selling us out.


Will we take it to the streets like the Egyptians?  Do we need to bring back "Riot Like an Egyptian"?

23 Seriously?  WTF does the Media stand to gain by outright lying about this?

I mean, I get that the Jug-Eared Emperor has no clothes, no brains, and no morals, but has the Media given a single solitary thought to what happens when and if the overall mood changes?  Say, when O-Care REALLY makes its presence known, or something?

How are they going to avoid the massive blowback of fellating this useless POS for years?  It's not like NO ONE will notice the Egypt protests ...

Or am I both stupid and naive?

Well, they still got him reelected in 2012.  The MFM can lie every day and by the time the next election comes up the idiot assholes will still believe then because they want their Free Shit and they forget how much the MFM lied to them the last time.

30 Morsi supporters say their clubs and homemade body armor are just for self defense as protestors in Tahrir Square and across the country demand Morsi to leave office. The death toll is now up to seven, with one American.

Morsi and his supporters are blaming the remnants of the Mubarak regime for sabotaging their efforts in the past year. Why is it do tyrannical regimes always blame someone else? Oh wait rhetorical question.

http://tinyurl.com/nxxhhj4


The tourist city of Luxor is a ghost town. Only five of 320 cruise ships that ply the Nile are still active. The Morsi appointed governor was chased out by protestors because he belongs to the group that attacked Luxor in 1997 killing 58 foreign tourists and 4 Egyptians.

32 Basically the Egyptian Secularist and Christians want to throw the Muslim Jihadi government out. The Media is covering up because they don't want to offend Muslims, plus the unicorn prince backed the Muslim Brotherhood and that would make him look bad. I bet you we will slap sanctions on Egypt if the protesters win with the help of the military, and the Muslim brotherhood will get asylum here in America. That is how stupid the Obama administration is...

38 The MFM and the Administration will simply wait until it looks for sure that Morsi will go, and then suddenly jump in with support to the protestors.  TFG will come out and give a speech in the Rose Garden about democracy and such that will be lapped up by the MFM.  Anyone who tries to point out that Morsi and the MB were supported by this administration will be called a crackpot.

40 Sometimes revolutions happen in stages. Like the French and Russian ones. Or even the American one. The Constitution came about after the Articles of Confederation failed. We should have taken a wait and see approach on Egypt. Getting rid of the fascist Mubarak was not the desired end state, though it was on the path. Muslim Brotherhood in charge should not have been a desired end state, but apparently with this crew it is. We should have accepted it as a consequence but not the status quo. I don't know who the democracy whiskey sexy people in Egypt turn to.

48 Breaking : The new catch phrase if you think too many people are on the Big Government Food Dole (you hateful bastards by the way) is "Food Insecurity". See if you see a family that is fat and they are getting food stamps, you might think well they are well fed and/or they are buying crap with the money they get. Well you would be wrong and probably raaaaacist and bigoted against poor at people, because what they are is "food insecure" which means because they don't have enough money for 'healthy' food, then they stave off hunger with crappy food like soda, and Doritos and shit. See because they can't stand to see their kids hungry so they buy the first thing they can with the money so its for the CHILDREN, and the WORST part is when they get a full time job, then they  (you guys) take the food stamp program away (again you bastards). Then they are under 'stress' and that's not good for the kids and everything, because you know stress is like bad if your poor and stuff. Honest to God the twisted logic, if I hadn't duct taped my head in anticipation would have splattered my brains all over the living room. It was a documentary so it must be real and true. So there's that.

Obama will bungle about trying to figure out what to do, while hordes of Sunni Jihadist (plus Arabian oil money) will pour in to help the Jihadist. Hopefully Israel will help the "reasonable side" because that is only country in the region that can and is not completely in the hip pocket of political Islam, like Euroland is.

89 I remember Egypt's old president was hard core against terrorists that even thought about bothering the tourists because he was smart enough to realize its importance to the country's economy. Too bad Obama's too stupid to understand economics.

90 Their economy is in the shitter and the MoBro's don't know what they are doing. The Mubarak regime ran the country on the edge for so long that when he got booted no one has been able to right the economy. *** I know of their complaints against an Islamist regime, but didn't realize they were living on the edge of starvation.

91 Posted by: Jane D'oh at June 30, 2013 05:41 PM (lVPtV) You have to remember some Muslims are "Muslims" for identification purposes only. They don't want to get lynched so they pretend to be Muslim even though they don't shit about the Quran. These are people if given the proper environment probably would end up ditching the Islamic religion over time. The true believing Muslims are insane. So the truth is there is no moderate Islam, however their are non-practicing Muslims who are not dangerous at all unless they start taking the religion seriously again. The general rule of thumb, the more religious the Muslim is, the more dangerous he is.

97 Just a couple of guys with a sign. No big deal. Actually, Buck Sexton of TheBlazeTV predicted this would happen this weekend. The Muslim Brotherhood turned out to be a glorified soup kitchen - and they're out of soup. They haven't a clue about governing a country. He said there is a possibility the Egyptian military will take back the government and install a non-Islamist. I think that might trigger a reversal of the "Arab Spring".

The transparent partisanship of the American media is physically sickening to me.    Tens of thousands of people    marching through Egypt's streets, putting themselves and their families in danger     to protest their    unwanted    gubmint,   and where's the Amerian MFM?   They were happy to send     their     people into the thick of the fray when the protesters    tore down Mubarak;   so why the    hesitancy now?   Could it be because their blessed Mocha Messiah helped install Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood in positions of power?  Could it     be because the    Cappucino Caliph made a "famous" speech in Cairo that was supposed to heal the wounds between the West    and the muslim    worlds,   which appears to have failed miserably?    Could    it be because the American MFM    have their mouths so securely fastened to the    Java Jefe's ass that they can    only speak through his asshole?




I'll take all of the above.

105 NDH one of the knock off effects of the US ethanol subsidies was to raise the price of corn worldwide.  Which affected how much Egypt could buy on the world market.  And with the tourism industry in ICU because of MB attacks to weaken Mubarak, that lack of cheap food helped propel the MB into power.  And since their rise to power Morsi and the MB  have further weakened the tourism industry.  And without that tourist money, Egypt can't afford to import the food it needs to keep the populace happy.

167 NHL draft. These kids are increasingly huge. Tons of 6'4, 6'5 guys. 30 years ago these kids would be playing basketball or football. But now every tall, but not gigantic, white kid is steered away from basketball at a young age. So now we have lots of 6'4 pitchers, 6'6 QBs, and 6'5 NHL defensemen. These guys are elite athletes. Many probably could play in the NBA if they trained -- but nowadays their parents and coaches steer them away at a young age on the assumption a 6'5 white kid has very poor odds of making it in the NBA.

251 *shudders to a stop as a really bad idea pops to mind*

I really hope that MEU and other American military assets are not used in Egypt.

Morsi won't ask for that help because then he is just a lapdog for the Great Satan.  Which means he would need the military to prop him up as his radical supporters desert him.

Would the military support him though?  Yes he has followed the Turkish playbook by locking up commanders but he has only been doing it for a year.  So there would be a good chance the military would say no to Morsi and resist American intervention if the President still pushed it forward.  This would catapult the Egyptian military back into the role of protecting the people and they do have an grudge to settle with Morsi because of those arrests.

Now look at the international repercussions.  Even if dressed up as a humanitarian evacuation that Egypt refuses to grant permission to.  If the US rams it forward, what image of the US does that present on the global stage?  The US is a bully.  So every radical Muslim will lap it up like fresh milk.  Talk about bad optics for Mr. Peace Prize.  But I bet him and his handlers will be stupid enough to push forward something worse than Desert One.

The irony of all this is the colleges will not suffer as they have so many foreign students whose governments are paying the bills for everything.

So these foreign countries paying for their students will give the students the edge over American students when it comes to jobs and such because there will be fewer American kids in the pool and plenty of debt free foreigners.

No, she has been the Amb to Egypt since 2011.  She was in charge when the Embassy in Cairo apologised for the YouTube video BEFORE the protest even started (and, the video was pure subterfuge. I had read about it a day earlier and the reason for it.  The protest had been planned for some time to demand the release of the Blind Sheikh.  On the Saturday before the protest, a snippet of  the video was played on an insanely extremist  nut job's popular television show, but there was no protest on Saturday, Sunday or Monday.  So much for the video inflaming the Egyptians).

I think this is part of what we are seeing. Anti-corruption. True believers demanding it be done the right way. What they do after they get rid of Morsi is anyone's guess, but I think having a reasonably non-corrupt government might be a very moderating influence upon extremism, as potential adherents focus on building within and not upon taking out frustrations on things without, and ignorevthe more strident voices.

Peaches, I'm sorry you don't want to hear it, but the truth is, when your parents insist you go to college, and your counselors say you should do it, and all your friends are going, and obviously the student debt peddlers are full of promises, there aren't that many people at age 18 that are going to have the sense to say "No, this is stupid and I having no part of it."

I'm surprised that they are covering it at all. 

I remember when Nick Robinson was in Tahrir Square during the Arab Spring protests asking the people things like 'What do you have to say to President Obama?' 'Do you want to say thank you to President Obama?'  'Wouldn't you agree that, without President Obama's Cairo speech in 2009, the fall of Mubarak would never have happened? 'Don't you owe President Obama a depth of gratitude?'

The protestors looked at him like he was nuts and said 'President Obama didn't have anything to do with this.  This has happened because of the Egyptian people.'

So, because the MSM is so far up Obama's ass and continuously claimed that the Egyptian Spring was the result of his efforts, I'm surprised that they would air anything considering it makes both them and Obama look like complete and utter incompetent fools.

True, but I think that they will give as little attention as is possible or circumstances require press.

It just doesn't look good for Obama or, to be fair, idiots like Billy Kristol, who went all-in for this Arab Spring clusterfuck.

319 The WHL guy, Petan, is listed at 5'8". Damn. I think in the NHL there may be an advantage for smaller players amid the bug uglies if they can be fast and accurate, like a hockey Barry Sanders or Maurice Jones-Drew.

'...Having said that, I think basically for the last three or four weeks the skeptics have been proven to be too skeptical. The naysayers who said it could never happen, it's going to be violent, his departure would mean the Muslim Brotherhood taking over or total chaos in the streets of Egypt, they have been proven wrong. And the notion that the Egyptian people have managed to pull off this democratic, peaceful removal of a dictator, and now have a seemingly a pretty stable situation in the streets of Cairo and the other big cities, with the guarantee or at least a promise of a transition to free and fair elections and no real sense that those elections are -- yet that the elections are going to go in some terrible direction for the U.S. or for Egypt itself.


I think this may be a case where the normal worldly pessimism is too pessimistic and the normal cynicism is too cynical, and one has a right to actually be hopeful about these developments in Egypt.'

323 41 32 Stupid?Yes,but he consistently sides with islamists. Posted by: steevy at June 30, 2013 05:31 PM (9XBK2) Steevy, he is consistently on the wrong side of history every time: The Green Revolution in Iran, the deposed president of Honduras, The "Arab Spring" and Morsi, Libya and Ghadaffi, betraying Poland on missile defense, his "Reset" with Russia, his meddling with the Eurozone, delaying intervention in Syria til it was too late, opposing intervention in Iraq as a Senator, gun control, abortion, gay marriage, healthcare, entitlements, you name it, Obama has always backed the wrong side.

@Mike Hammer: "You know, comrades," says Stalin, "that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how."

 

Stalin was wrong.  The important position is the one who picks the slate of candidates - they don't care who counts the votes, or how.

326 Egypt? Riots? Who'd have thought... Take your pick from any Muslim nation since the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The dividing line is between the Saudi (Sunni) Wahhabi primitive (zero tolerance for anything but themselves) aspiration to force their own global caliphate on the world, or the ancient Syrian and Persian civilizations' latest (Shi'a) governments that comprise tolerance (various degrees) for the other ancient religions, coexistence according to their own customs. /hell, even spell-check accepts Sunni but rejects Shi'a./ Yet, according to Daniel and Jeremiah visions recorded in the Old Testament books, after harsh trials, in the end days, the Lord of Hosts will recognize his people from Egypt, Syria and Israel and build a highway between them, and they will worship the Lord together. Don't impose racist blinders and pretend that of those who worship the Lord, no other ethnicity but modern Jew will the Lord recognize as his own. Our politicians enjoy quoting scripture in order to fan the flames of war, regardless of integrity of their propaganda. Just note well that there is no mention in biblical revelations regarding the last days of a Sahara empire let alone the Saudi tribe aka the Muslim Brotherhood this past century. Its own invention during the late 19th Century was aided by the British Empire in order to maintain Britain's world dominance. Yet by every other Islamic sect, the Saudi/Wahhabi agenda is comprehensively rejected as an illegitimate and self-imposed fabrication playing the West's tool in conquering the world. The irony for the West is that the Saudis are no one's tool but their own. The best reason, however, to stay our hand from being blown off interfering too many times in the region, is because it is NOT in our nation's best interest.

Lolz.  I've had it on my blog for a long time with Bill Kristol in a klown suit (http://tinyurl.com/kmmmwga).  I remember watching him say it knowing that those words were going to bitter for him to swallow in the future.

329 FWIW: Seth Jones is the son of an NBA player. Donavan McNabb's nephew was selected; the son of a former CFL player was taken. My theory is that hockey satisfies a young athlete's desire for an intense contact sport without being quite as dangerous as football.

The whole show was bad -- not a conservative in sight. Worst  -- McCain on Egypt -- quick dismiss and on to Syria.  With hardly a nod to the millions of dollars and propaganda supporting  Morsi and the MB.

Millions in  the streets in Egypt -- barely a peep from MSM, libs or WH.  Delusional and dangerous.
