Egyptian Protest Is No Tea Party

Quoting Michael Prell
“When Egyptians used social media to connect with each other and organize rallies, they were called ‘forward-looking,’ and ‘cutting edge.’ They were cast as ‘the spearhead of a very modern uprising,’ ‘enabled by Facebook and Twitter’ as Thomas L. Friedman of The New York Times gushed, ‘to feel the energy and pride of a people taking back the keys to their country and their future.’

When American Tea Partiers used social media two years ago to connect with each other and organize rallies, they were cast as a violent racist mob bent on ‘march[ing] this nation as far backward as they can get; backward to Jim Crow [and] backward to the bread lines of the 30’s.’ Or, they were painted as too stupid to drag their knuckles off the ground long enough to type 140 characters into Twitter.”
