12-year-old boy speaks truth to Egyptian power

If this translation is anywhere near accurate, this child could absolutely be, as the title of the video suggests, the next President of Egypt. That is, if he survives that long. He is astoundingly clued-in, and he is possibly the bravest young man I’ve had the honour to see in my entire life, knowing how volatile the Egyptian situation is, and knowing how quick to silence dissent the fascist theocracy is that’s rising to replace the overthrown Morsi.

I fear for his life. That should not be the first reaction a person has to seeing someone contradict power structures. That’s no way to win the hearts and minds of your people, to build a country and a society that will last.

Even Adam Baldwin and Morena Baccarin and liberal reuse of CGI giant snake models from other Syfy movies couldn’t save this miserable pile of self-mockery. By the end of it I was really hoping for a better one-liner to finish off the bad guy. The fight scene with the cutout paintings was the crowning achievement of this movie, which should tell you something. That’s all I have to say about that.
