I’ve made a point of including the anti-Obama banners brandished by Egypt’s revolutionaries in every post I’ve written on the fall of the Morsi regime, because I had a suspicion the mainstream media wouldn’t be showing people that stuff. I was right.
Mohammed Morsi may be deposed, but Barack Obama’s palace guard in the press is still up and running, and they really don’t want their viewers to dwell on just how much the Cairo man on the street personally blames Obama (and US ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson) for installing and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s man. The Examiner notes that on the CNN and CNN International Facebook pages, “many Egyptians are expressing their outrage over the slanted media coverage in Egypt, as well as their animosity against President Obama.”
The Examiner throws in a tirade from an Egyptian woman living in Canada that concludes with a demand for Obama to “please remove your black witch Patterson from here because she is not welcome here.” By “here” she presumably means Egypt, not Canada, and she means “black witch” in the same sense that Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter series was a black witch, because Anne Patterson is white, as you can see from all those “Obama & Patterson support terrorism in Egypt” banners the media doesn’t want to show you.
Patterson might soon be more welcome in Canada than in the U.S., as Foreign Policy reports the “knives are coming out” for her in Washington:
Incompetent officials generally “fail up” in the Obama Administration – her Benghazi lies were a huge resume enhancer for Susan Rice – and sure enough, Patterson is said to be in line for a promotion to Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs. Wait until the angry Egyptians get wind of that. CNN will have to work hard to avoid relaying their reaction to American viewers.
