White-Washing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

The narrative of the meanstream media and the politically correct classes on the situation in Egypt has now started to chrystalize. And lo and behold.. it's a worn out template

Some of the new media, like Sun News of Canada, offer a sound perspective. But they are the exception to the rule. 

After the Arab Spring revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia governments ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood came to power by democratic means. But as much as democrats have sanctioned them, the Ikhwan or the Muslim Brotherhood, is not a normal political party. It isn't, because it's subversive in nature and aims to use democracy (i.e. the ballot box) to come to power, and then use that power to replace democratic values with Islamic ones.
