Democracy in the Middle East

I’m watching all news organizations implictly cheer on the violent mobs who have been rioting in Egypt and other Muslim shitholes the last couple of weeks.

If democracy is to be a good thing, the majority of people must not be assholes. In Muslim countries, the majority of people are assholes. Name a Muslim popular revolution that’s turned out well.

Iran and the Ayatollahs?

Afghanistan and the Taliban?

Palestine and Hamas?

There’s a reason we support dictators in that part of the world, and it’s a good reason. As the Pythons said in Life of Brian, “Let’s face it, who else but the Romans could keep order in a place like this?”
