Bill Kristol refused to believe that the 'Arab Spring' was anything short of a democratic revolution, but news out of the Middle East points to the fact that Marxism was a strong influence on the revolution.
"It's truly humbling and I'm so proud as an Egyptian to come to them and speak about the revolution and especially as a revolutionary socialist and, you know, as someone who took and ‑‑ took part in that experience," the revolutionary said. "The Western media especially and especially American media are focused so much on calling it an Internet revolution, and this goes back to what Alex was saying. It undermines completely the struggle, and it's being done deliberately. They are calling it a revolution, a spontaneous thing, that it just started on January the 25th."
"This revolution has been a long time coming, for years and years and decades. But especially since 2000 with the second Palestinian intifada that we saw for the first time people taking to the streets after a decade of really organizing in such a way," she continued.
Glenn wasn't shocked to see someone admitting that these revolutions were part of a plan and anything but spontaneous.
"Don't you guys honestly feel sorry, at any point you don't feel sorry for people like Bill Kristol?" Glenn asked. "Disregard what the media says to you. Because they're playing games, they're involved or they have their own special interests, or they're just clueless. Doesn't matter, either way, doesn't matter. They are not going to wake up."
