Apparently the Declaration of Independence doesn't apply to everyone

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Most on the right are denouncing the protests in Egypt and are falling in behind Mubarak. For them the Declaration of Independence only applies to white Judeo-Christian societies. Everyone else should be happy with their tyrant as long as the tyrant is our friend.
