Terrorist American Public Standing With Islamists Instead of #1 Capitalist

by Jack Stuef

Going green.As many commentators, such as Sarah Palin, will tell you, the U.S. cannot allow Egypt to become a democracy because its people might want their laws to reflect their religion. That would be great, except their religion is not Christianity, it’s Islam. So they’re all terrorists. But now, according to a Gallup poll, the American public overwhelmingly supports the protestors on the streets of Egypt. (“Gypsies,” they’re called.) In related news, Hosni Mubarak is the world’s richest man. Obviously we should support him because he won capitalism, but for some reason our citizens love these terrorists. Never forget?

Most Americans support the protesters who have called for a change in the government in Egypt, with 82% saying they are sympathetic to the protesters (including 42% who are very sympathetic), while 11% are unsympathetic.

Sympathetic to GETTING BLOWN UP BY DEMOCRACY?

Two-thirds of Americans (66%) say the political changes occurring in Egypt will be mostly good for that country, and a similar percentage (60%) say the changes will be mostly good for the United States.

Yeah, well, talk to them again at Halloween after they’ve encountered all the illegal immigrant mummies flooding into America when Egypt falls. Those things are going to join up with Mexicans in their nefarious health-care gangs. [Gallup]

Nooooo! Egypt is too close to 9/11!!!!!

I for one love Egypt, and always try to buy some of their jewelry or stationery when I'm at the Met gift shop.

Blendergoathead February 8, 2011 at 5:08 pm

Snowbilly and her ilk won't be happy unless the protesters take over the US Embassy – then the US can trade arms for the hostages, just like Reagan… who is still dead last time anyone checked.

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 9:57 pm

Nahh Snowbilly is mostly just crazy because….well, there it is, point made.

Gratuitous World February 8, 2011 at 5:09 pm

their first order of business should be the forced secession of whatever is Egypt's South Carolina. It will save a lot of energy. Minya, I'm looking in your general direction.

Empty a clip on them. Scott Beason (R-AL) would approve. It's the 'Merican way.

Wait'll everybody hears that "freedom" includes some Islamic bits.

I'm 17 hours late, but I still LOL'd.
That needs to go on a bumper sticker.

SorosBot February 8, 2011 at 5:11 pm

If Palin and Beck find out how few people believe in their insane rantings, will they cry? I hope so.

Barbara_i February 8, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Speaking of crying, I just read that Bristol said that she will probably run for political office one day. (seriously) I see that being delusional is genetic in that family.

SorosBot February 8, 2011 at 5:35 pm

Maybe she wants to help Ben Quayle no longer be the dumbest Congressman from Arizona.

Terry February 8, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Perhaps she'll follow the Christine O'Donnell model rather than her mothers. Naw, who am I kidding.

bagofmice February 8, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Getting money for quitting (government abstinence , what have you) seems to be a family trait

DustBowlBlues February 8, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Shhhh . . . .we need this dumb bitch to do some things that aren't totally batshit because, as is, she isn't even electable in the Republithug presidential primary. And as things are shaping up, she would be a fine cnadidate to run against Hopey.

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 10:00 pm

Yes….well your wish will not be granted on that one…Sarah is clearly stickin' with the crazy and the lazy because well…she's just being herself I suppose.

Sophist [APPLESAUCE] February 8, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Hey, once you've seen bread-helmet guy it's impossible not to support the protesters.

OMG, that picture is so full of win. +p for you! Also, I love applesauce. That is all.

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Bread helmet guy for President of Earth!

chickensmack February 8, 2011 at 11:06 pm

I just showed it to someone. When they said, "I don't get it," I explained that he's a protester in a city of millions, and his minimalist armor is a causal response to the impetus of protest; that he has so little, yet feels influential enough to gird himself with anything he can find, just to maintain his part in the events.

To whom I was speaking then replied: "Oh. I thought it was just stupid."

* sigh *

mumbly_joe February 8, 2011 at 5:11 pm

Also, it's important to remember that according to Prosperity Jebus, the fact that Mabarek has lots and lots of money, which he stole from his people and now they can't afford to eat meals, is proof that Propserity Jebus loves him the most. After all, if Prosperity Jebus didn't love him, why'd He let him steal all that money from his people?

emmelemm February 8, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Exactly. Those BILLIONS and BILLIONS of dollars are his just, Godly reward for all his hard work.

JackObin February 8, 2011 at 5:12 pm

What do Egyptians know? After all, they don't have a very long history. Besides, it was Jesus who supervised the construction of the pyramids, utilizing dinosaur labor.

bflrtsplk February 9, 2011 at 5:05 am

Fred Flinstone built the pyramids? Willlllmmmmmaaaaa!

PsycWench February 8, 2011 at 5:14 pm

Shorter Sarah "It's good if it's the way I would do it, or it profits me in some way". The fact that she has bizarre ideas about why she might do something is beside the point.

Redhead February 8, 2011 at 5:14 pm

You're giving the American public too much credit. They probably heard "Do you support more pork tidbits in Arby's," not, "Do you support the protesters in Egypt."

bokononista February 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm

I figure the Nuwaubians of Eatonton, Georgia are eyeing the property over there which already has pyramids in place. Obviously this will be a part of America now right?

BornInATrailer February 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm

I think Obama should waffle again, go back to supporting Mubarak, and we can see how many conservative pundits get whiplash. Keep doing this until one side snaps. Sorry, I mean until the public loses interest.

It's like a terrible game of red light/green light with the traditional bonus round involving brown people dying.

nounverb911 February 8, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Does Obama use maple syrup on his waffles?

ifthethunderdontgetya February 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm

But now, according to a Gallup poll, the American public overwhelmingly supports the protestors on the streets of Egypt. (“Gypsies,” they’re called.) In related news, Hosni Mubarak is the world’s richest man.

I haz a modest proposal!

Instead of cutting Social Security to pay off the national debt we got from tax cuts for billionaires, wars for billionaires, and deregulation for billionaires, we take everything David H. Koch and Charles Koch own via their stealing, inheriting, and such as, and use that instead?

We could supplement the proceeds with a National Guillotine Superbowl, and if this isn't enough, we could throw in a couple of Murdochs, a Donald Graham or so, and even a pinch of Sulzbergers.

"National Guillotine Superbowl"

I get the feeling the blade always wins.

What would be the over/under?

DustBowlBlues February 8, 2011 at 6:13 pm

That's a revolution I can get behind. As long as it doesn't involved guns. I'm a liberal and guns scare me so much that I've never held one in my hand. So my Second Amendment remedies would consist of pointing my index finger, my thumb up, and yelling "bang, bang," and depending on the honor of the wingers to fall over and pretend I shot them.

The revolution of my dreams.

bagofmice February 8, 2011 at 8:48 pm

and there you go. Finger banging some kochs for the revolution

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 11:22 pm

Nice modest proposal…for a moment I was worried you were going to say something about a Palin sex tape with the proceeds from selling it to wingnuts used to pay off the debt….no, yours is much more doable!

Tengu February 8, 2011 at 5:16 pm

I'm still betting this will all suddenly become one of those fun flash mobs videos.

jus_wonderin February 8, 2011 at 5:31 pm

"It's a hard knock life….."

el_donaldo February 8, 2011 at 5:18 pm

I assume that Palin is simply reading the scene as more proof liberals are a stalking horse for creeping sharia.

Steverino247 February 8, 2011 at 7:18 pm

I have some Creeping Sharia growing along my fence in the back yard. Lovely flowers in season!

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 11:26 pm

Yes because we have a lot in common with crazy right wing muslim fundamentalists. Why just the other day I was opining that if my neighbor doesn't put a burqa on I was going to stone her ass for showing her elbows in public….oh and liberals are always calling for more religiosity, less social freedom and we're just setting up Rachel Maddow for the ultimate doublecross when we kill all the gays! Stupid, frozen Alaskkkunt

Lost_Teabaggers February 8, 2011 at 11:40 pm

You know what's so retarded about it is their entire Liberals+Muslins equation is built from the same bigoted equations of yesteryear: liberals must all be gay cuz they ain't sayin "Kill thems faggits!" and the immortal "N$#@%r Lover!" that was shouted at anyone who was in favor of civil rights. It's just another tool of dumb Southern honkeys to explain why other people don't agree with automatic oppression of groups they don't like.

ManchuCandidate February 8, 2011 at 5:18 pm

What are US America's arms dealers going to do when Egyptia stops using the "aid" the US America sends for other things besides US America Weaponry because it needs to use the money elsewhere?

Why won't someone think of the price Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumman, Colt, United and other companies are going to pay for Freedums Egyptia style?

Preferred Customer February 8, 2011 at 5:45 pm

The Egyptian army isn't going anywhere. Something tells me that weapons procurement and military spending in Egypt is going to remain a pretty stable industry. Now, you may be right that the money will be used elsewhere, as in it will be used to buy guns from Russian, North Korean, Iranian and Chinese war profiteers. But, that just means that we'll be able to sell more guns to other people in the region who are worried about the new guns in Egypt. People like Israel and Saudi.

DustBowlBlues February 8, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Guns don't seem to be doing much for our economy, so I have an idea. We don't buy guns for any country. The money saved might put us well on the way to having access to affordable health care–for Americans. And I'm talking about Israel, too. They may be a democracy but has anyone noticed how they tilt heavily toward theocracy? Just ask an Israeli woman trying to divorce an abusive husband.

My work here is done. I've pissed off every side.

mereoblivion February 9, 2011 at 9:27 am

Nope, you still ain't pissed me off. Keep tryin', though.

Actually, um, no.

You might find "the great vowel shift" to be interesting reading.

Chet Kincaid February 9, 2011 at 11:16 am

That's nothing compared to "The Great Shawty Shift" which occurred in the late 1990s, when a "shawty" stopped being a 12 year old corner lookout for your drug transactions and became a hot girl at da club.

I thought Sarah wanted us to support our allies in North Korea.

i've said something like this before but still: how much of a lame ass do you have to be to spend your time on a website with which you (apparently) disagree consorting with a bunch of people you don't like, reducing their arbitrary and meaningless 'p' score one stranger at a time – all the while saying nothing?

for some reason it makes me think of those computer punch cards from the 70's.

I don't think you can trust that poll until Fox News surveys all 115% of Americans.

And which Egypt are we asking them about, the one that took over Iraq, or the one that took over New York?

This poll is meaningless, Find out what Americans think when they find out that Liz Taylor is no longer queen of Egypt.

Fuck, Mubarak has 70 billion dollars?! The rich bastard could buy a piece of desert somewhere else and re-create Egypt!

And this "Carlos Slim" in Mexico–is he the guy in the Dos Equis commercials? Or is he the cartoony mascot for some brand of blunt-ready cigarillos?

friendlyskies February 8, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Carlos Slim is half terrorist, half Messican, and can send half the planet "Happy New Year" texts at will. Glenn Beck doesn't have a chalkboard big enough.

So if we gave Egypt $86b in aid over the years, and Mubarak only has US$70b, what happened to the other $16 billion dollars? Hookers and blow?

Negropolis February 9, 2011 at 1:52 am

Really?

This isn't some tiny country we'll just be able to bully around, nor is it a historical American colonial outpost. Maybe I'm being naive, but I don't see Egypt playing our game, especially after they just got through ridding themselves of the guy that's played our little game of "America's Favorite Dictators" for decades.

iburl February 8, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Too bad the 11% unsympathetic includes everyone in Official DC.

BarackMyWorld February 8, 2011 at 8:12 pm

I'm having flashbacks from all those arguments I had in 2004 and 2005, when wingnuts tried to tell me Iraq was really about bringing democracy to the Middle East, not WMDs.

"What if Iraq elects an extremist government?" I'd ask. "Would you be okay with a democratic Iraq then?" But of course!

So what I'm taking away from this is democracy is only better than dictatorship when Americans have to die to impose it on another country, and bad when its a result of a people's self-determination (see also: Ngo Dinh Diem).

MistaEko February 8, 2011 at 8:31 pm

In the even headier days of 2003, the neo-con rags gloriously spoke of a cascade effect, when our bombing of Iraq would make every other country in the region know that they too would need to become some stripe of pro-west kinda-democracy, be it out of Iraq-envy or fear of gettin' esploded or actual esploded cuz hey we were in the neighborhood.

And now of course the Tunisia-Egypt-Jordan connections are clear signs of a zombie epidemic taking root.

Please take your seriousness to a more appropriate forum.

Also OT (also) – did or did it not happen that some fresh GOP teabaggers sided with *Dennis Kucinich* today and denied the GOP leadership an extension of certain Patriot Act stuff (after they brought it to the floor with that fun "2/3 majority, no amendments" trick)? Ha! Suck it, Boehner!

This is probably the biggest domestic news in months…maybe even years, and nothing but a peep from the media. Probably, because they'll eventually pass it, but man if I wouldn't love to see teabaggers keep this up, because this is actually a good thing.

Is there a possibility of using a mummy's curse to bring the police state down? Like, send Hosni a box and when he opens it, whoops! You've got a 5000 year old curse!
Could we use a Stargate of some sort?

Now what is she going on about? Isn't Egypt's uprising all about her?!

80% of Americans can't find Egypt on a map (100% for Fox News viewers).

Once the 80% is shown the location of Egypt–upper right hand corner of Africa, then 80% of them will go nuts because all those people are actually undeserving minority coloreds and potential illegal aliens who Obama wants to bring to the U.S. to have babies and go on welfare.

Clearly, it's time for neocons to vote out the American people and elect a new one.

Christ on a crutch, folks! What's the damn hurry?! That "trickle down economics" will probably start kicking in any. day. now……

Two-thirds of Americans (66%) say the political changes occurring in Egypt will be mostly good for that country, and a similar percentage (60%) say the changes will be mostly good for the United States.

Sorry to be a commie-pinko-liberal, but who the fuck cares if this will be "mostly good" for the United States? What does that even matter? Why does everything have to be about us, always? It just pisses me off to no end.

Just wanted to pipe in and say "agree wholeheartedly".

Other people in other countries get to do things possibly differently than we would do them. Amazing but true.

That image brings to mind something Jimi would have said: “Move over Rover, let the Caliphate take over.” And back to you, Glenn.
