Egypt – Morsi’s Supporters Won’t Just Disappear – 3 July 2013

Well, hopefully the army will be this gracious when they overthrow the next democratically elected government of Egypt.

Okay, great – Tahrir Redux…you’ve brought down the government of the person most Egyptians voted for. What are you going to do now? How long before you’re all out there in the streets again? What was this for?

Democracy isn’t about _just_ votes. But it _is_ about votes. It’s time for less self-righteous indignation and more thinking things through. What is your strategy? What ends do you hope to accomplish? What kind of timetable for achieving these things is involved?

The people demand the rise of common sense, not just the fall of the regime.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see some pro-Morsi counterprotests now. The people who voted him in didn’t just disappear.
