Assyria next! – UPDATED

And the Eternal shall make Himself known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Eternal that day; yea, they shall worship with sacrifice and offering, and shall vow a vow unto the Eternal and shall perform it…

–Isaiah 19:21

Though I kinda wish that Hosni would make his speech already… and then there’ll be a bunch of reaction and analysis and analysis of analysis and reaction to analysis…

Here’s video of Tahrir Square:

(Skimming the typically paranoid and Islamophobic and Obamaphobic comments at HotAir, I’ve never been gladder to have dropped those losers.)

Wanted to say, let’s wrap this up so CK can get to work… but maybe that’s hopeless…  The show must go on…

UPDATE

Next verse:  Isaiah 19:22 :  It’s almost as though they were trying to provoke a violent reaction and/or justify a coup.

  1. what’s bothering you about the comments at HotAir?

    How could anyone in the Middle East hate America that much? 9/11 was bad; but this is worse.

    they seem reasonable.

  2. @ fuster:
    I don’t understand that one. I know it must be something foul, but I don’t understand it.

    However, if you’re going to start ribbiting at MW, I just might have to break my HA fast and join you there. I’ve been sorely tempted several times lately.

    I’m a little afeared though of what might transpire with you at MW. You’re right about there being some pretty fierce ideologues over there. I was just yesterday called “Hasbara” (had to look it up) for the first time. On the other hand, I ran into a couple of guys who are also into the Herman Cohen stuff… Where else is that likely to happen?

    that one was someone saying that the Egyptians are trying to toss Mubarak because Egyptians hate the US and if Mubarak goes it’ll be the worstest ever.

    I don’t want you to worry about the nasty people at Mondoweiss being mean to me. I’ll be …OK.

    I did warn you about that hasbara stuff.

    “fierce ideologues” is pretty funny, Tsar. Meier Kahane was a fierce ideologue as well, but he wrote with a little more restraint than some of these folks.

    Well, if Scott wasn’t pre-occupied, he might be able to supply us with the Yogic term for the foul stupidity that surpasseth understanding.

    As for HA vs MW and a lot else on the web: The spirit of the internet, especially in blog comments, is negative in the philosophical sense. This negativity often gets converted into simple crude expressions, and is also subjected to a tendency to compensate for anomie and disconnection with exaggerated false familiarity and bad manners – statements that seem to provide emotion, presence, individuality, shape…

    yes, I’ve found that I fit right in.

[E]ven Fox didn’t tout Bartiromo’s big scoops on Trump’s legislative agenda, because 10 months into the Trump presidency, nobody is so foolish as to believe that him saying, “We’re doing a big infrastructure bill,” means that the Trump administration is, in fact, doing a big infrastructure bill. The president just mouths off at turns ignorantly and dishonestly, and nobody pays much attention to it unless he says something unusually inflammatory.On some level, it’s a little bit funny. On another level, Puerto Rico is still languishing in the dark without power (and in many cases without safe drinking water) with no end in sight. Trump is less popular at this point in his administration than any previous president despite a generally benign economic climate, and shows no sign of changing course. Perhaps it will all work out for the best, and someday we’ll look back and chuckle about the time when we had a president who didn’t know anything about anything that was happening and could never be counted on to make coherent, factual statements on any subject. But traditionally, we haven’t elected presidents like that — for what have always seemed like pretty good reasons — and the risks of compounding disaster are still very much out there.

So, does Mitchell make any money on the work, which has been shared so many times? He uploaded a high-res image of the symbol and granted permission for anyone to use it personally for free. But for those who want to support his work or simply want something readymade, you can also buy T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, and journals emblazoned with the symbol through Threadless.“I really just want to spread the image as much as possible and cement it in history,” Mitchell says. “In all honesty, the amount I’ve made from my Threadless shop so far is still less than my hourly rate, so I don’t really see it as a big deal. If you look at my Twitter, half the replies are people wanting to know where they can buy a shirt. Threadless is happy to help them out with that, and so I’m happy to let that happen.”Now that the symbol has flooded our streets and our timelines, Mitchell just has one request: “Impeach this idiot already,” he says.

This is a Waterloo moment for Trump, the tea party and their alliance. They have been stopped in their tracks not only by Democratic opposition but because of a mutiny within their own ranks. Although never particularly liked or respected, it is now clear that they are no longer feared. The bankruptcy of their ideas and their incompetence have been exposed. Their momentum has been dissipated. Their rejection of political norms has itself been scorned. Our long national nightmare may finally be coming to an end.
