This is what this faux conservative supports:
Tamarod is an Arabic word, and it means ‘rebellion’, or ‘insurrection’. The Tamarod movement in Egypt has been launched in response to a year of Muslim Brotherhood rule. While there have been a number of huge protests in recent weeks, they kicked off with a massive demonstration onÂ Sunday the 30th of June. This new endeavour has been organised byÂ many of the same peopleÂ who planned or supported the revolt against Mubarak. Last time, the Muslim Brotherhood took control of the situation and were swept into power by an electorate that wanted – or thought it wanted – complete Islamic law.
A few days ago TommyÂ tweeted the following:
@bedspolice just called me to say don’t retweet death threats or I’d be arrested as they cause people distress? I ****ing kid u not!–Threatened With Death? Don’t You Dare Tell Anyone!Â (GoV)
What you see here is the invading army of Islam. (Mullah)
Since then, Egypt has become a shambles. As soon as he came into power, President Mohamed Morsi drafted a new constitution which mainly served to grant himself dictatorial powers. After the Muslim BrotherhoodÂ paid gangs to rape protestersÂ in Tahrir Square, and afterÂ sheikhs and other officials ordered the people to vote in approval, the constitution was passed into law.
It gets worse. More thanÂ 99% of Egyptian womenÂ have been sexually assaulted, a sharp increase over previous years. The Muslim Brotherhood governmentÂ usually blames the women. The economy has alsoÂ collapsed spectacularly. Even fellow Jihadists say that the Muslim Brotherhood areÂ “fascist moronic amateurs”. Of course, none of this has stopped Obama’s administration from awarding themÂ even more military support. There’s even talk of him sending over someÂ well-trained riot copsÂ to help them to crush the planned Tamarod protests. Protecting the border with Israel? Pull the other leg, Uncle Sam.
Now that Tamarod’s petition for the removal of President Morsi’s government has reportedly gainedÂ over 22 million signaturesÂ – more than the 13 million votes that put the man in power – the Muslim Brotherhood is doing what it can to crush its newfound opposition. They are supportingÂ the creation of vigilante groupsÂ to ‘protect state institutions’. They areÂ organising a counter-demonstration of their ownÂ to intimidate Tamarod supporters. The game is up and they know it, but they care only for their political power in the name of Islamic supremacism.
In less than a day since the beginning of the mass protest in Tahrir square, the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters have been destroyed, and the Egyptian Army has issued an ultimatum to Morsi – 48 hours to come to terms with the people.Â This ultimatum was rejected. The leaders of Tamarod are threateningÂ “complete civil disobedience”Â if Morsi does not resign by Tuesday evening.
It seems now very likely that the revolution will succeed, Morsi will stand down, and new leadership will be chosen. Will Egypt suddenly become a beacon of liberty and virtue, now that the Muslim Brotherhood are being driven out of the country? We don’t think so. But it could hardly be worse than it is now. Then again, isn’t that what we all thought in 2011?
We in the EDL wish the best to the many people of Tamarod who crave the freedoms that the Western world takes almost for granted, and the worst to those who simply abuse democracy to further their brutal Jihad.
