Those Brown-Nosing Egyptian Entertainers Deserve To Live Under Dictatorship!

See the A list entertainers from Egypt pose with the army

Just watch them release one song after another praising the army and it's lovely army leader General Sisi, who has never met a a massacre he did not like. Now, the entertainers all falling in line behind him singing hims praises. They sing for the second revolution but not the first one. Le'ts be clear, the main artists in Egyptian music did not sing for the Jan 25th revolution, But they all came swinging for the second revolution (aka coup)

They are singing about their history and past glories, but have no idea that the future is what matters, and they just have ruined it for everyone else. I love how this song, calls the brotherhood a minority--forgetting off course that minorities have won the past six fair elections that took place in Egypt. The issues with such thinking, is that they fall in love with persons, not the process. Meaning democracy is a process and it's hard to like, but when a charming and soft spoken dictator raises, the people of Egypt cheer him on. and remember 30 years later their original sin. 

I thought entertainers like Medhat Saleh and Rihm Abd El Hakeem were all for freedom of speech, but they were among the first to usher a new ear of intimidation and repression. Of course those practices come wrapped in the flag of nationalism and Arab Unity. I love how they sing for Arab unity, but the new government is choking the Gaza Strip, jailing Palestinians, Syrians and Yemenis for no crime they have committed.

The humor in all this, the army targeted the brotherhood first, second they gutted the liberals, and now they are going after the Al-Azhar and the other parties that does not endorse the arm's practices.

I remind you, most of those singers who are praising the army were the same ones who sucked up to Mubrak, and now they are coming back for the encore.
