95 Dead, 800 Wounded In Egypt Violence - Liberals, Give This Some Honest Thought

Reported government crackdowns, in Egypt, against Morsi supporters in Egypt have left 95 dead and 800 wounded (source). Edited, at 1900, to add: as of last count there were 235 reported dead.

Think about that, especially if you are a liberal.

The specific question I would like you think about is how you think liberals in general, in this country, would have reacted had this happened during the administration of George W. Bush. I can tell you how conservatives would react with a very liberal Democrat in office, they would read the article and find it interesting that the current administration is doing little in Egypt about the recent military coup after having supported the election of Morsi who was and is a staunch supporter, even a member, of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a terrorist organization. 

Now really, take at least a few minutes and think back to when GWB was president. How do you think you would have reacted to this, how do you think your liberal friends and associates would have reacted, how would have liberals in general reacted and how would have the media (is there any need to label most of the media as liberals) have reacted? Would you or liberals in general have remained calm with an interest in the matter or would you and liberals, for the great part, have had little interest in the actual facts and then reacted quite vocally in your condemnation of George W. Bush by saying it was all his fault. If you are being truthful with yourself, you know the answers to each of those questions and, most likely, the answer to both of them is that you would have been out there saying it was all GWB's fault. You probably would have been calling, no you would have been screaming, for Bush's ouster without delay. No matter how much or how little Bush was involved, if anything went wrong you blamed him - much as Obama has done throughout his presidency. Add to that the media, who would have been heralding it from the rooftops with a rabid sort of anti-Bush hatred. Funny how silent all of you are now, with regard to the culpability of the current administration, all while the Obamessiah is in the White House.

I have to wonder, are you at least that honest, to admit that had GWB been president when this had happened, the left would have had conniptions because of it. Or is it you cannot admit it because you all have your heads in the clouds (or in your asses) and thus your vision obscured by your dreams of your leftist utopia to not even be able believe that about yourselves.

All the best,
Glenn
