As Twitchy has reported, over the past week, Egyptian citizens have swarmed Tahrir Square to protest President Mohamed Morsi’s dictatorial power grab and the Muslim Brotherhood’s increasingly influential government presence.

It’s important to note that while Eltahawy is condemning Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood for their hostile takeover of Egypt, she is still congratulating herself for vandalizing a poster that condemned radical Islamist groups — like the Muslim Brotherhood.
