Protesters stormed and ransacked the Cairo headquarters of President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group early Monday, in an attack that could spark more violence as demonstrators gear up for a second day of mass rallies aimed at forcing the Islamist leader from power.
Organizers of the protests, meanwhile, gave Morsi until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to step down and called on the police and the military to clearly state their support for what the protest movement called the popular will.
Sunday saw millions of Egyptians flood the streets nationwide in a massive outpouring of anger and frustration with the president and the Brotherhood, the Islamist group that propelled Morsi to power. The protests were largely peaceful, although in a sign of the volatility of the country’s divisions, clashes erupted in the evening around the Brotherhood’s Cairo headquarters between armed Morsi supporters barricaded inside the building and young protesters pelting it with firebombs and rocks.
After clashes raged overnight, protesters managed to breach the compound’s defenses and storm the six-story building early Monday, carting off furniture, files, rugs, blankets, air conditioning units and portraits of Morsi, according to an Associated Press journalist at the scene. One protester emerged with a pistol and handed it over to a policeman outside.
The protesters aren’t much better than the Muslim Brotherhood regime. The “revolutionaries” also raped a Dutch journalist in Tahrir. The groups behind the protests are not just as bad as Morsi’s thugs, they’re stupid.

Today’s demonstrations, which have fallen on the anniversary of Morsi’s inauguration as Egypt’s first freely elected leader, are the culmination of growing popularization since he took office.
In one camp are the president and his (Salafi) Islamist allies, including the Muslim Brotherhood and more hard-line groups.
They have vowed to defend Morsi, saying street demonstrations cannot be allowed to remove a freely elected leader.
The other is an array of secular and liberal Egyptians as well as moderate Muslims and Christians.
They say the Islamists have overstepped their election mandate, accusing them of trying to monopolize power and mismanage the country.
The opposition believes that with sheer numbers in the street, it can pressure Morsi to step down.
Wanna bet that “array of secular and liberal Egyptians as well as moderate Muslims and Christians” were part of the movement that ousted Hosni Mubarak and replaced him with Morsi?
The selection of candidates who ran against Morsi included secularist Ahmed Shafiq, widely regarded as an extension of Mubarak’s reign, Socialist Hamdeen Sabah, Islamist Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh, and former foreign minister Amr Mouss. Not very good choices except for maybe Shafiq, but given his similarities to Mubarak, that was not going to happen.
Among Morsi’s first actions as the new despot were to open the floodgates to Hamas, and basically go full tyrant by granting himself unlimited powers soon after he took over.
His Sharia-contaminated Egyptian constitution has (surprise) made life unbearable for many people, especially those accused of ‘insulting’ their 7th Century lunatic prophet, and assaulting women who don’t like being held in misogynist captivity.
What the fuck did they expect? They installed a hardline Islamist to replace an authoritarian, and they thought things would improve? He’s a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the worst Islamofascist organizations on the planet and they didn’t see this coming?
The so-called “Arab Spring” brought the worst of the worst Islamic cockroaches out from the woodwork. It was inevitable.
