Subduing Arab voices.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Ramzy Baroud writes 'I found myself browsing through a heap of hilarious videos by mostly Egyptian TV show hosts Tawfiq Okasha and Amr Adeeb.

In one of his numerous videos on youtube, Okasha, the star and host of the Cairo-based privately funded al-Faraeen channel, tries to explain the differences between the brains of humans and water buffalos. Along with Adeeb, they occupy a large space of Egyptian media discourse, wreaking so much havoc with their mostly unsubstantiated claims, frequent incite and outrageous claims.

Their demagogic discourse presented through daily campaigns of misinformation and vilification of those perceived to be enemies of the state is dangerous, especially when there is little room to counter these claims through critical thinking and sensible discussions. But what is interesting is that neither Okasha, nor Adeeb and many others like them were never meant to be entertainers per se, however entertaining they inadvertently may be.'
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: In Egypt particularly, Ramzy explains 'There is little room for opposing views and regimes are fighting an epic battle for survival by using every possible tactic to win, even if by deception, intimidation, or sheer lies.'

Removal of resistance: He fears that 'To save themselves, some Arab regimes have chosen to sacrifice the intellect of their societies.' Unification: Baroud is optimistic about where the future will take us on this front. And it is a front. A very very bloody front. Now even literally.
