Awful: Journalist live-tweets being beaten, robbed by CSF during protests in Cairo

Just awful. A journalist just live-tweeted being beaten and robbed by CSF (Central Security Forces) in Cairo, Egypt. As Twitchy reported this morning, the protests over President Morsi’s power grab continue. The Muslim Brotherhood then encouraged its supporters to take to the streets, and chaos has spread to outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

Journalist Cliff Cheney was reporting from the scene, and was attacked for it by Egyptian security forces.

This is a “positive step forward,” U.S. embassy?

Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation and update with further developments.

    I’ll bet they’re thrilled that the obama/jarrett/clnton klan installed their muslim brotherhood terrorists there in Egypt and elsewhere in the middle east. They’re working hard to build their caliphate they so desperately need. Next on the chopping block? JORDAN, then the UAE.

    Obama helps build a redistributed world. Violence, mayhem and zealotry included. Class war with clubs and live ammo. Elections have consequences everywhere. Especially the fixed ones. <-Forward-<<

      Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a
      2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies
      of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love
      in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria.
      He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals
      who get in the way.

      Putin said regarding the military,”…instead of solving the
      problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from
      the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have
      been used much more efficiently elsewhere.”

      Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis
      . O’bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with
      projects like “fast and furious” and there is still no sign of ending
      it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist
      Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult
      of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance.
      They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin
      and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same
      drink of illusion.” PRAVDA OPINION PIECE 11/19/2012

    POSTED 5hours ago @cliffcheney yes. Safe now.

    He is SAFE, so that is good news, he has contacted the press Center & is trying to get back his camera which was taken from him near front at US Embassy.where he says he paused too long while rolling video and they took the camera he was shooting with.
    He says “the whole time I was shouting journalist and American in Arabic. They were even saying ‘American’ as they kept trying to take my stuff.”
    Cliff also tweeted: Caught by CSF. Only minor beating. They took one of my Nikons and tried to take my iphone and money. They retreated from protesters.

    ~Very scary for Boots On The Ground Journalists…I am glad he & others are OK.

    As far as the US Embassy is concerned, a “real” journalist would have behaved just like our lapdogs would have – holed up at a local coffee house until the latest set of Embassy and Muslim Brotherhood approved talking points was released, complete with the “sanitized” video, and then reported those as the “news.”

    Since this guy didn’t do that, I doubt that the US Embassy or anyone in the lapdog media will even acknowledge that the incident took place.

  • soccer mom

    “American” is not a term I would be shouting around Tahrir Square nowadays.
