Sandmonkey Rants on the Death of the Democracy Movement
Atlas has a powerful interview with Egyptian Sandmonkey on how democrats are sucking the life out of the freedom movement in the Middle East:
Atlas: Where you shocked when Hoyer met with the Muslim Brotherhood?
SANDMONKEY: Let me tell you something. I was in Turkey a couple of weeks ago and I met a couple of Syrian activists. They one thing they told me that was really funny about the Pelosi visit. After Pelosi came to Syria two things happened. People on Syrian TV were saying, “We forced the Americans to knock on the Damascus gate!” Sort of like an admission that we messed things up in Iraq so much that America had to come and beg for their help.
But the day after Pelosi’s visits there were immediate arrests of Syrian activists. That was the fruit she yielded. “Oh the Americans came over and they said they have a different foreign policy and they’re more interested in placating Bashar’s ego.” And he went out and got [arrested] everyone he wanted because he knew he had an ally in Washington that wouldn’t pressure him as much.
…ATLAS: As an Egyptian who understands democracy, life, liberty the pursuit of happiness….and who admires America. Looking at America, I want to know what you see.
SANDMONKEY: I’m seeing a country in great danger. Simply speaking, I don’t think the people get what’s at stake anymore. I don’t think they see where they are heading.
Sick! This is a very powerful interview at Atlas Shrugs.
