#OpEgypt: Mainstream media likes simple labels
Mainstream media likes simple labels. Before 30/6, Morsi & SCAF were in one pot. However, after 30/6, some people are already against the revolution, but support Morsi for personal gains. Others are against Morsi, yet still won’t trust SCAF (those say there is only one revolution and it’s still ongoing). Some people are pro revolution and think Morsi was working for it. Etc.
Those who say there are 2 revolutions are probably negatively affected by one of them (the first one)! Same applies to those who say there’s 1 revolution followed by a coup (the second one for them is a catastrophe). The latter kind are assuming that 2011′s January 25 revolution has ended by ‘the election of a civilian president’, or that the regime has really changed at least slightly. Which is not true. The regime is the same, with different faces. The revolution has goals, not demands. None are met yet. We’ve even gone in an opposite direction for some time. However, we are confident that it will go forward to victory. The past 30 days are part of the whole ~900 days of the revolution where the (unchanged) Egyptian regime has killed and injured thousands of innocent civilians. Despite of such great loss, no one ever condoned raising arms as a method for change.
Note: The term SCAF is more accurate than military, since for example many “pro Morsi” folks believe that SCAF has “betrayed them”, despite of their uninterrupted “respect” to the “military”.
