Declaration of Support. Seriously.
In Cairo on April 12, the TV anchor on the Al-Bernameg show looked straight into the camera and said:
"I hereby declare my total support of all that is Muslim Brotherhood."
The current Egyptian President, Mohammad Morsi, has long been a Muslim Brotherhood leader. His government is heavily influenced, if not dominated, by the once-secret, still shadowy organization that is widely suspected of trying to turn Egypt into an Islamo-fascist dictatorship.
The TV anchor continued his declaration of support for the Muslim Brotherhood, as the party's symbol appeared on the screen beside him and slowly began to rise:
"After all, they are our masters now.
"Where else can you find such a superior race, purer than rainwater?
"It is a superior race, which declares that nobody else belongs to Islam.
"It is an Aryan race, a superior race, a race that deserves to rule us, to mount us, and to dangle its feet over our backs.
"It is a race that is predestined to remain pure and clean,
so it cannot marry your kind.
