Clinton campaign insider Patrick Halley revealed to NewsMax that "goon squads" were recruited to suppress protests at events for New York Sen. Hillary Clinton. Now one Clinton "goon squad" victim has come forward to tell his story.
The incident took place at New York City's Israeli Day parade at the height of Mrs. Clinton's 2000 campaign for the Senate, where, by all accounts, the then-first lady was roundly booed by the crowd as she stoically marched from block to block.
A member of the Web site FreeRepublic.com, dressed for the occasion as the devil, joined the crowd to add his voice to the protest. He recounted the episode:
"To suppress opposing views in the crowd, the Clinton campaign had people on both sides of the street walking the route with Hillary-but behind the barriers. They were carrying professionally printed pro-Clinton signs."
"Before she passed," he recalled, "they shoved me back and got in front of me, holding their signs in front of mine. However, my signs had a 3-foot handle and I raised them up."
At that point, recounts the FreeRepublic protester, "I was poked in the eye by a finger inserted to the eyehole in my mask."
In his recently released book, On the Road with Hillary, Mr. Halley details his eight-year stint as Mrs. Clinton's advance man, where one of the most important jobs was stifling protests like those staged by FreeRepublic, using physical intimidation when he deemed it necessary.
"Less genteel souls," Halley explaned, sometimes referred to his protest busters as "goon squads"-although he preferred the term "etiquette squads."
"I was proud of the fact that not one of them had ever been arrested," he boasts in the book.
Every now and then, Halley siad, even he would have to throw a punch or two.
During a trip to Moscow while Mrs. Clinton was first lady, the advance man recalled:
"A photographer blocked my way and, trying to get a picture of Hillary in her limo, pushed me. I hit him square in the face so hard I thought I'd broken my hand. His nose exploded in an eruption of blood and I was able to shove him out of the way and jump into the lead car."
When it came to his protest busters, Halley says he "never advocated physical confrontation and always insisted that the etiquette squad stay within the boundaries of the law."
But in the next breath he confessed, "Sadly, but inevitably, things sometimes got a little frisky, but my recruits knew how to handle themselves....I had heard rumors that they had been very adamant about defending themselves when set upon by protesters."
Stay well - Stay safe - Stay armed - Yorktown
Forget the FBI, the Clintons have hired many private investigators over the years to assemble their blackmail dossier. I'm sure the FBI files are nothing compared to these private files.
He's a child molestor who grew up to discover that, for the most part, power was an aphrodisiac - although he sometimes didn't take no for an answer from those less impressed.
She's had a literal and figurative "killer instinct" from day one. Morality and fair play, to her, are weaknesses to be trampled at all costs. She has one agenda and one mantra she repeats to herself over and over . . . ME! ME! ME! Why else would she tolerate Pee Wee's . . . uhh . . . adventures? But I think she's finally figured out how to keep him in line.
Ah, such a wonderful example of liberal compassion and tolerance for opposing viewpoints. Yep, tolerant and compassionate except when it comes to disagreement, then they'll think nothing about punching your face in and maybe even killing you, and be proud of it. I swear that some (many? the majority of?) liberals are among the most brutal and bloodthirsty people I have ever known. Cross them, and you'll pay, one way or another.
She said that a guy in a devil costume follows her around, and that he doesn't carry signs or anything, he just follows her around.
The lie in this statement is that he was carrying a sign. I made it. It said, "GO HOME HILLARY". Big, yellow and black for effect.
Doesn't she ever think that this might be the real deal and Ole Scratch may be just waiting for her to kick off so that he can drag her down to hades to be his consort?
Why can't the FReepers who FReep these Klintoon events where we know the goons will be present video tape themselves?
Why not have a Freeper or two with video cams taping the FReepers as they FReep from afar? How much impact would a video of the goons acting up have?
Pokey? - just a guess. ;>)
I was pushed by a Hillary Supporter in Newburgh
I was pushed by a Hillary supporter in some other small town
I was kicked and scratched by a loser in DC in front of the Chinese embassy
I have a lawsuit against me for what happened in front of LIEberman's house Dec 2000
BUT, NO ONE ever got hit like DON ADAMS and his Freeper Sister did in Philly!! They got it worse than any of the rest of us.
Don should have called us!
Just kidding with you, Race. You did good.
1-the policeman serving as a security guard at the NY airport who was struck by the vehicle hitlery was riding in (she was reported as running behind schedule and hurrying to catch a private plane to a fundraiser function-this was during her so called campaign for senator-you know the one-the campaign wherein she NEVER held an open press conferance to answer questions from the press-everything was pre-scripted.). The man who was hit, was hurt, sent to a hospital and hitlery NEVER ordered the car to stop, never got out to see if he was ok, and it just shocks me that this policeman was silenced from speaking by his superiors. Wish I knew the police dept., I'm still furious enough to write to um!
Billy Dale-Billy needs to come out of the woodwork and state what he knows. He was brutally and very hurtfully crushed by hitlery's nastiness, her incredible lack of kindness and sophistication.
The informant who overheard she and billy boy arguing on inauguration day because billy did not think hitlery should have the vice president's office, and she WANTED IT badly enough to get in bill's face in public.
The driver who heard Chelsea call our service men 'trained pigs'.
The WH military marine who got the dregs of hitlery's coffee cup thrown into his face because he would not leave his post to fetch her another cup-his orders were to always stay put, hers were for him to get her some coffee-she lost and got even by throwing coffee in his face. How I wish he had gotten a good hot cup and returned the favor.
