Here in this country Leftists, along with the allied minions in the Occupy Movement, have developed cutesy slogans and chants to fill the air about “democracy”. We’ve all heard them as they’ve spread across the airwaves. One is the rhythmic chant “this is what Democracy looks like”. They also have bumper sticker slogans all, directly or indirectly, aimed sooner or later at our electoral process.
Most notable is the:
“Tell Me What Democracy Looks Like! This is What Democracy Looks Like!”
In keeping with their fellow Leftist legislators and agitators, they keep it alive and relevant – if not by the movement’s activities then by the sound bites that echo even in the halls of the Capitol and in left-centered media. But aside from that, and all their talking points, below is an article how their democracy-seeking counterparts in the Mid East play their hand in the same game. But ignore the consequences of both at your own peril.

Muslim Brotherhood ‘Democracy’: Slapping, Stabbing, and Slaying for Sharia

Prior to the presidential elections, it was revealed how Egypt’s Islamists viewed democratic elections as an obligatory form of “holy war.” Then, any number of Islamic clerics, including influential ones, declared that it was mandatory for Muslims to cheat during elections—if so doing would help Islamist candidates win; that the elections were a form of jihad, and those who die are “martyrs” who will attain the highest levels of paradise. Top Islamic institutions and influential clerics, such as Yusuf al-Qaradawi, issued fatwas decreeing that all Muslims were “obligated” to go and vote for those candidates most likely to implement Sharia law, with threats of hellfire for those failing to do so.
The point was simple: democracy, elections, voting, even the individual candidates, were all means to an end—the establishment of Sharia law. Cheat, fight, and kill during elections, as long as doing so enables Sharia; vote only for whoever will enable Sharia; avoid hell by enabling Sharia. (It is precisely for this reason that the very first demand made by Islamic leaders is that President Morsi implement the totality of Sharia law in Egypt. That is, after all, why so many voted for him.)
