“Good Riddance Hoseme MoBarack!”
“President Barack Obama told the Egyptian leader through a special envoy not to run again
President Obama has urged Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak not to stand for re-election this fall”
“Old MuBarak had a farm, C I, C I A and on that farm he had some pigs C I, C I A....”
“Brown non-christians scare me.”
“Oh noes! Whatever will they do???
“Oh the irony
The best video comes from RT
“Republicans, TPers and birthers are a bunch of ineffectual pu$sies”
“Time for the RITE to dig up some helicopter parts and start making a deal.”
“Muslim Brotherhood, anyone?
Walk like an Egyptian.....”
“Ummmmm, Egypt has a Islamic population component but it is a minority.
Some folks need to do some research ... for once.”
“It will all be over when New Zealand takes over China and we all talk like an Egyptians stoned on the bible.”
““Media Matters is blaming the Jews....”
No they aren't. Some right wing blog is taking articles deliberately out of context - par for the course for some very cynical folks.
Compare this slimy piece of misrepresentation to the real article linked below it:
Note the real article taken deliberately out of context and spread like wildfire contains the sentence "Few would argue that the imminent collapse of the Mubarak regime (and other Middle East dictatorships) derives from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Neither Egyptians nor Tunisians are risking and losing their lives for Palestinians. They are doing it for themselves. They want freedom."”
“All the people that want to believe and follow all of these middle eastern based religions should move there on their holy ground and fight until they're all gone, good riddance all of you superstitious lie lovers.”
“I disagree Ped, in the end this isn't about freedom, it's about chaos....”
“Somebody get Rocketanski on the phone. Tell'em to get ready. Those scootjockys don't stand a chance.”
“All is 'chaos' that isn't 'THE' word, eh?”
“The Tea Parts should dig up the Mayflower and fix-er-up, if yawl hurry you could sail off to Cuba and slaughter all the commies like you did the amerikan indians, while you get away from that ' church-O-the libby".”
“Time to pull funding TFO of the ME. Let these guys tear each other apart and let's get on with alternative energy already.”
“^ +1 ^”
“Time to pull funding TFO of the ME. Let these guys tear each other apart
and let's get on with alternative energy already.
WHAT? Uh, go right ahead. Get your business started if you think the financial risk is worth it.”
“Anderson Cooper Was Attacked In Egypt
“WHAT? Uh, go right ahead. Get your business started if you think the financial risk is worth it.
It obviously worth it.”
“Do you have a name for the business yet?”
“So...something good is coming out of it...beat him some more!”
“Egypt just invited their tealiban (the Muslim Brotherhood) to talks about forming the new gov..
“THE FINANCIAL RISK ; Didn't congress try to keep the Oil Co. subsidies while their profits soar to pay for more citizens united ads in the 2012 election?”
“Here's the thing. You have people like Boner, who are completely lying!
Boehner, R-Ohio, went even further, praising the Obama administration response and calling for the U.S. to continue supporting Egypt's move to democracy, adding: "What we don't want are radical ideologies to take control of a very large and important country in the Middle East."
So, on one hand, he's saying, sure, free and open elections (that is critical component of a democracy) and then on the other hand saying, but it really can't be certain groups in charge.
Same old double-speak from the right wingnuts...”
"Trying to set the tone for their party, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the country's two top elected Republicans, have deferred to the Democratic president. They are signaling an unwillingness among the GOP leadership in Congress to pick a fight, in line, at least on this issue, with the tradition that politics stops at the waters' edge in the midst of foreign crises."
"But others, including the often-vocal Sarah Palin, have been silent. And a few, like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, are treading carefully as each day of demonstrations in Egypt brings more turmoil."
They have an opinion about everything else, but not this? Figures.

Silly Sarah probably doesn't know where Egypt is.”
“And HPD, very successful private businesses say they are ready to invest to get reduce/eliminate dependency on fossil fuels. They see the writing on the wall, even if you don't. And frankly, their opinions are a lot more important.

I have absolutely NO problem with that. I do have a problem with directing our government to do that (which seems to come from the people unwilling to do it themselves, incidentally).”
“I have no problem with the US setting standards and benchmarks. They're gonna start by investing in electric vehicles for USPS fleet. Awesome. Get the ball rolling.”
“Moonbat heroes Katie Cupcake and Brian Williams have fled Egypt.
“the wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead...”
“The subject includes all that can be seen from Sarah's porch, look over there, it's the pyramids sticking out above of those oil wells, or are those tanks and armored trucks?”
“Your poor moonbat search isn't listed in the accepted subject matter according to the Dec.2010 issue of Bigot Weekly, Please curb your gas hog appetite for southern anal tear gas attacks.”
“Egypt = Iran 2.0, with Barak Obamy as Jimmy Carter.”
“"“Poor moonbat only has offtopic personal 'insults'. LOL”
Sweet! Another personal attack!”

Derp. There is no disconnect. The MB is internally split, but if the radicals do gain power, they WILL work to end democratization, even though democratization is what their public face is now.”
“The Muslim Brotherhood is poised to swoop in and take advantage of the chaos. Global Islamic Caliphate being their ultimate goal. Yemen and Algeria are gonna fall too.
Better wake up folks, this is Biblical, IMO....”
“Global Islamic Caliphate being their ultimate goal. - stratdood
Better wake up, Stratdood. Better yet, READ. A sizable portion of the MB supports a turkish-style party.”
“Well the MB spun off Hezbollah so....They aren't gonna be open about it Mutt, just like the progressive Socialists they have to hide their true agenda....”
“Islamic Socialism and Caliphate
Google them Mutt....Do your own homework that the lamestream media won't do”
“It's not a monolithic entity, Stratdood. Saying they have one goal is highly inaccurate. The MB faces competition from secularists and other religious conservatives. They face structural hurdles to their participation in govt. The military is a counter balance.
The MB sharing power might not be a catastrophe IF the younger cohort comes out dominant. If the hard-core old timers win out, then all bets are off.”
“I just do what Glenn tells me to. He and Romney will form the US- MB (Mormon Brothersinthehood).”
