At Clinton Speech: Veteran Bloodied, Bruised & Arrested for Standing Silently As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave her speech at George Washington University yesterday, condemning governments that arrest protestors and do not allow free expression, 71-year-old Ray McGovern was grabbed from the audience in plain view of her by police and an unidentified official in plain clothes, brutalized and left bleeding in jail. She never paused speaking. When Secretary Clinton began her speech, Mr. McGovern remained standing silently in the audience and turned his back. Mr. McGovern, a veteran Army officer who also worked as a C.I.A. analyst for 27 years, was wearing a Veterans for Peace t-shirt. Blind-sided by security officers who pounced upon him, Mr. McGovern remarked, as he was hauled out the door, So this is America? As you see, Mr. McGovern is covered with bruises, lacerations and contusions inflicted in the assault.

Yea, but Mrs. Clinton just said it was great that the protestors in Egypt were allowed to standup for freedom. Somebody mark this incident. If she ever considers running for President again this will help upset her apple cart.
Yeah, I hope somebody brings this incident up when she starts going on about how much she appreciates those who have served.
I Am Livid!!
Liberals love dissent. Well, only when it suits their agenda of course. Otherwise, you need to be kept quiet.

Setting aside whether the police were too rough in their handling of this protester, I see no problem with a disruptor being forcibly removed from the audience at a speaking engagement. The other audience members were there to hear the speaker, the speaker was there to be heard, why does this one guy have the right to impose on everyone else?
This guy has worked with Hillary’s buddies Code Pink.
In addition to supporting those who are taking to the streets to bring an end to the criminal war and occupation of Iraq, the Partnership for Civil Justice is defending humanitarians who stepped forward to challenge the lethal sanctions and blockades that the U.S. imposes which target civilian populations in order to achieve strategic and political goals. We have invoked international law in the defense of Voices in the Wilderness, which ran the Iraqi sanctions blockade in order to deliver medical supplies desperately needed by the sick and dying children and civilians of that nation.
Working with communities, including the Arab and Muslim community, which have been particularly targeted and terrorized in the past three years with raids, home invasions, interrogations and arrests, the PCJ has sought to provide both legal support and Know Your Rights educational information.
They have been working with ANSWER and supporting their communist thugs. There is more to this story than what is being reported. McGovern is a scumbag.
It was on Zero Hedge yesterday. They beat up conservatives in Philly and other places when her slime husband was POTUS.
There are no words. This is America??? It’s starting to look more and more like Venezuela.
Oh wow. thanks for the info. I am quite surprised. Nevertheless, he is a vet...so this is the left, eating themselves!
He did nothing but turn his back. No disruption. Watch the video.
McGovern and his fellow Vets for Peace are used to harassing Republicans and conservatives without any consequences. The answer to his question, “This is America?” is “Yes. Leftist America.”
This guy is a certificed leftist nut. A
Truther. Really, really out there if you know what I mean.
The more I read about stuff like that the angrier I get. It’s all Democrats and Liberals that are causing this. They yell about civility then do something like this???? Sorry, gotta go chew some nails or sumptin to calm down.
I’m not surprised that this guy is a leftist.
Disrupting other people’s events is a standard leftist tactic.
Thankfully I have never seen a conservative pull this maneuver.
