Tyrants can only rule when the people allow them. Let’s hope the Egyptians have had enough. Love this video==> Not only tearing aprt the outside, they got inside and started throwing stuff out the windows. Fabulous! GO EGYPTIANS!

Via Telegraph:

President Morsi’s decree puts his decisions above legal challenge until a new parliament is elected, which has caused fury amongst his opponents who have accused him of being the new Hosni Mubarak and hijacking the revolution.

Demonstrators burned down part of the headquarters of the Brotherhood’s political front, the Freedom and Justice Party, in Alexandria and there were also protests in other cities.Offices were ransacked as books and chairs were burned in the streets.

In Cairo, thousands of people demonstrated in Tahrir Square, the heart of the 2011 anti-Mubarak uprising, demanding Morsi quit and accusing him of launching a “coup”.

    Who does Morsi represent? Does not seem to be the Egyptian people.

    I suspect that the Muslim Brotherhood is composed primarily of Arabs (foreigners) and not native Egyptians. This would be like foreign socialists invading the USA and taking over our government…Oh, never mind.

  4. Timbo says:

    What did the Egyptian people think that this Muslim Brotherhood thug was going to do?… Defend them? Instill a democratic government? Elections have consequences, especially when yet another dictator is “elected”. This won’t be pretty.

  5. deaves1 says:

    At least the muslim brotherhood kept his promise to obama. He’d behaive himself until after the elections, then launnch attack against Israel and put his own guy in charge.
