Time for A "Mic Check" Moment with Obama
--- by Masoninblue
After Obama [gets] back to the United States from his free-trade sellout of the 99% on behalf of the 1%, he should be welcomed at his first public appearance with the following:
I want to be very clear
I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR
in calling upon the Egyptian authorities
IN CALLING UPON THE EGYPTIAN AUTHORITIES
to refrain from any violence
TO REFRAIN FROM ANY VIOLENCE
against peaceful protesters .
AGAINST PEACEFUL PROTESTERS
The people of Egypt
THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT
have rights that are universal.
HAVE RIGHTS THAT ARE UNIVERSAL.
That includes the right to peaceful assembly and associatio n,
THAT INCLUDES THE RIGHT TO PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY AND ASSOCIATION,
the right to free speech,
THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH,
and the ability to determine their own destiny.
AND THE ABILITY TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN DESTINY.
These are human rights.
THESE ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.
And the United States
AND THE UNITED STATES
will stand up for them everywhere .
WILL STAND UP FOR THEM EVERYWHERE.
Put your money
PUT YOUR MONEY
where your mouth is.
WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS.
