This is one of the hazards, I suppose, of adopting a fake persona. It 
preempts criticism or at least introduces a deniability factor. When 
Binh early on materialized as "Not George Sabra", he coyly told a FB 
friend "not so", when it is obviously him.

Sad really. When he was open about his ideas and willing to engage with 
people, he was always careful to listen to criticisms even if he was not 
willing to act on them.

He has smeared the Egyptian left that opposed Morsi as "social 
fascists", a term that obviously hearkens back to the Comintern in its 
most degenerate and self-destructive phase. Shameful...
