After Obama slithers back to the United States from his free-trade sellout of the 99% on behalf of the 1%, he should be welcomed at his first public appearance with the following:

Mic-check;
MIC-CHECK!

I want to be very clear

I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR

in calling upon the Egyptian authoritie­s

IN CALLING UPON THE EGYPTIAN AUTHORITIES

to refrain from any violence

TO REFRAIN FROM ANY VIOLENCE

against peaceful protesters­.

AGAINST PEACEFUL PROTESTERS

The people of Egypt

THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT

have rights that are universal.

HAVE RIGHTS THAT ARE UNIVERSAL.

That includes the right to peaceful assembly and associatio­n,

THAT INCLUDES THE RIGHT TO PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY AND ASSOCIATION,

the right to free speech,

THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH,

and the ability to determine their own destiny.

AND THE ABILITY TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN DESTINY.

These are human rights.

THESE ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.

And the United States

AND THE UNITED STATES

will stand up for them everywhere­.

WILL STAND UP FOR THEM EVERYWHERE.

Mr. President

MR. PRESIDENT

Put your money

PUT YOUR MONEY

where your mouth is.

WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS.
