My protest, your protest

So I found myself wondering... the people in the USA, the ones who see Arab Muslims as evil and as the biggest threat to democracy, the ones convinced Obama is a dictator and who take to the streets, placards in hand, to decry his so-called encroachment of civil rights... the people who see a world starkly divided between 'common man' freedom-loving patriots and a web of dark interests worldwide trying to deny them that freedom.

These people who love freedom and who hate Muslims. What is their take on what's been going in North Africa? How does it fit with their mentality to see Arab Muslims demanding the same kinds of things they themselves cynically claim to be demanding? Do they support the cause of 'freedom'? Do they see these Arab kids as kin? As fellow-travellers?

Not that I've seen.
