Riots  continue in Egypt this morning, and they have spread to the U.S. embassy in Cairo. As Twitchy reported, protests started against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Morsi after he granted himself dictatorial powers.

Muslim Brotherhood urged its supporters to also take to the streets.

And so it begins.

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo appears to have been given the keys to its Twitter account back after being given a long time-out, and weighs in.

Oh, really? This is positive?

More reports from on the ground.

The embassy continues to tweet, first denying that the Obama administration threw them under the bus for the embassy’s disgraceful apology tweet on September 11. Worse, they appear to stand by the craven apologism.

Ah, the old faux-apology for an apology. You see, y’all just “misunderstood.” Like with President Obama, dumb, old “bitter clingers” just don’t get the nuance-y nuance of craven apologitis! That’s totally the only reason they deleted those tweets.

Dialogue! By dialogue they, of course, mean appeasement.

Twitter users rightly give the embassy the business.

And some advice for the embassy.

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

    Hey, Cairo Embassy! Do you think you’re so special that Obama won’t abandon you too? Benghazi was a dry run. You will be the dress rehearsal before he brings this show to the US later next summer.

    Hope your female staffers have full burquas ready to go.

    EDIT ** Oh and as to talking with those you most disagree with, I think Danny Pearl would have a different perspective on that today. That is, if the folks he was talking to hadn’t beheaded him.

      It’s all OBAMA’S fault for blaming an American and apologizing for a video most of these people never even knew about. HE caused all this violence by keeping the story going and having everyone in his administration keep apologizing for the USA being ‘insensitive’ to Allah and Muslims. Why did he continue to do that? Inquiring minds want to know!

    At least the useful idiots over there are smart enough to know they’ve
    been had. Maybe it’s because Morsi at least had the stones to admit he’s
    a dictator, unlike Obeyme, who hopes nobody will notice.

    • Zaguy2

      You are constantly comparing dog crap with human crap.
      Morsi’s people KNOWS what a dictator is and are not filled with illiterate racists like you!
      For instance, Morsi does what he pleases, as he is a de facto dictator.
      You have a business he wants? He puts you in prison.
      You complain about him? He puts you in prison.

      Obama’s a dictator? Why aren’t you in prison?

      Obama isn’t Hitler, Mussolini, or any other dictator you’ve pathetically decided to compare him to.

      I’d say this is “getting ridiculous”, but that point is so far in the rearview I can no longer find it.

    Ok, I admit I am on a Grassley level of understanding how tweeting and re-tweeting works. But why would an official U.S. Embassy respond to tweets that use profanity? When did that start happening?

    More importantly, why are they “speaking” at all? Is this what now passes as “diplomacy?” This is the very thing that Romney criticized on 9/11 just before we heard about the actual Benghazi attack.

      Seriously. The tweets coming out of the embassy sound like a couple of high schoolers making it up as they go along. But hey, look what we’ve got at the top of the heap.

      So embarrassing. Can’t they hire someone who does this, you know…professionally?

      • Garth Haycock

        Remember, in the eyes and mind of a liberal/progressive, this kind of behavior is professional. OWS is the proof.

    Regardless of who wins in Egypt, the U S will have no ally in that country.

      I think obamuslim doesn’t want us to have any allies anywhere. Easier for him to pull a MORSI when he is ready. Maybe we can buy him a new country and get him to leave ours alone.

    Oh dear, someone discover another outrageous movie on Youtube again?

    • BeeKaaay

      Yeah, someone dared to disagree with Islam on moral grounds, because they think that Holocaust 2.0 is evil. The Nazis went nuts because of that.

    • my preciousss!!

    Really. They want to see THESE aspirations fulfilled?

  • arrow2010

    Our foreign service employees in the Middle East are the biggest bunch of d-bags ever.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Just looking back over the embassy’s sputterings. They sound like an official propaganda ministry for Morsi! Come on. “We believe that the Egyptian revolution was an incredibly positive step forward and we want to see its aspirations fulfilled.” Anyone have a recent pic of the ambassador without a bomb strapped to his chest?

    Whoever is running that Twitter account is so delusional, it’s sad.

    Aside from everything else, did the missing the congressional hearings where it was blasted in the open that the attack had nothing to with the movie?

  • mhojai

    They’ll probably blame this riot on “Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving” show.
