I just watched Republican Congressman David Drier on Fox News hail the first steps of democracy in Egypt and the historic nature of this election. Ugh. But fortunately not all see it that way as Allen West has made clear in a Facebook post this morning after the Muslim Brotherhood candidate was announced victorious. He refers to this as a “radical Islamic nightmare”:
A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.
