Syria: You are an Embarrassment to the Revolution

This post is part of our special coverage Syria Protests 2011/12.

There are seven tell-tale signs for those who are “an embarrassment to the revolution” – any revolution. On Twitter, Syrian @NMSyria lists those signs.

According to NMSyria, who describes himself as a proud revolutionary, those signs are:

@NMSyria: #1: You're a sectarian douchebag who loves to talk about slaughtering the minorities and oppressing them later.

@NMSyria: #2: If someone criticizes the opposition, you call them a traitor. #EmbarrassmentToRevolution

: #3: You are not open to criticism of opposition even if they make freaking stupid mistakes. #EmbarrasmentToRevolution

@NMSyria: #4: You have double standards. #EmbarrassmentToRevolution

@NMSyria: #5: You have too big of an ego. #EmbarrassmentToRevolution.

@NMSyria: #6: You like to nickname the Free Syrian Army as the “Free Sunni Army”. Umm. No. You're an #EmbarrassmentToRevolution

@NMSyria: #7: You spread rumors to gain fame. Hey! Who knows, maybe we'll make you President of something. #EmbarrassmentToRevolution
