Hillary Clinton motorcade hit with eggs in Manila
cnn ^ | 11/16/11 | Jill Dougherty

Posted on 11/16/2011 7:43:57 PM PST by dragnet2

(CNN) -- A motorcade carrying Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Philippines was pelted with eggs and other objects Wednesday, the State Department confirmed

The incident occurred at 2:45 p.m. in Manila, when the motorcade was traveling from the presidential palace to another location, deputy State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters

"The secretary's motorcade ran into a crowd of approximately 40 to 50 people, protesters," Toner said. "They threw objects at the lead vehicle -- I believe it was eggs and paintballs, they maybe threw rock -- and the motorcade pulled out of that area

He also said that at no time was Clinton in danger.

Clinton is in the Philippines for commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty.

They were probably wanting to show their love for her. It cn’t be because they hate us. According to the main stream media, when the parasites, idiots, and traitors put obama in the white House, the World would love and adore us once again.

The "other objects" are probably eggs as well. However, they're eggs that have passed through the human digestive system.

Looking at the video here, it seems those in the Philippines are not very happy with our wonderful foreign policy.

Rambabe can deal with a little egg and paintball attack.

Don't forget she has combat experience taking live fire back in her Bosnia days!!

That's when she was the #1 troubleshooter, butt kicker and name taker for the Clinton administration.
They would send her into all the hot spots that were too dangerous for President Clinton to visit.

Balut - A fertilized duck embryo that is boiled alive and eaten in the shell. Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, balut are mostly sold by street vendors in the regions where they are available. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines.

I remember riding the Philippine Rabbit bus from Angeles to Manila. At every stop, the vendors would pass outside the bus, yelling “balut, balut....” Passengers would buy them and then crack and eat them. EEEUUUWWWWWWW.

My Filipina wife said the news clips are showing and stating that these are union people.

Not sure what to make of it other than the 'crowds' seem to be relatively small.

It's a guess, but I'm starting to suspect the enemy of America is attempting a global anger against America ala Viet Nam protests of the 60's and 70's.

My sis-in-law is Filipina as well and the reports are that it’s only a small group of morons. State Dept do not have the resources of a 1000 man team of the SS. Whenever I head to Manila, Cebu, any parts of Luzon, Pampanga I have never been threatened.

There’s a reason why Tim Tebow preaches there for many years...

It’s any bus going to the provinces. Just do not be on those buses when it’s NOV 1 or HOLY WEEK. It’s great buying smokes one at a time in a jeepney and having a puff during traffic..

I thought of Nixon, too. But #1 Nixon was in the car. and #2 I thought his car was pelted with rocks, not just eggs.

They are the usual leftists who demonstrate all the time.

The real news is that the cops left them get that close. Sounds like the President better start cleaning up the cops after he chases the criminals in the last administration.

In the Philippines, heat ripened eggs are a delicacy; called "balut" (pronounced: bah-loot). I remember being there in the seventies and seeing the carts being pushed down the street with the barkers calling out "Bah Loot, Bah Loot, Fepsi"

Conservative agitprop used to manipulate the sheeple into believing that people don’t respect America now that Obama’s President.

Everybody knows that the seas have stopped rising, the planet is healing and Filipinos love Hilary and Obama’s foreign policy.

Not like under Bush.

You just reminded me of this. If Hilary were a conservative black man the media would be reporting that story 24/7 along with all her lies and gaffes until he (she) resigned in disgrace.
