Skip to comments.Queens College First Hand Freeper Report (Alan Hevesi Shooting Remark)
Posted on 06/01/2006 12:46:39 PM PDT by TFine80
I was at the Queens College Commencement this morning, and I saw the whole thing occur. I also called up the Post and spoke to a reporter immediately afterwards -- so it's possible that I helped trigger this.
The context was this. There were lots of Democrat politicians there: Schumer, Hevesi, Jay Hershenson (CUNY Vice Chancellor), and Helen Marshall (Queens Borough President). Schumer spoke first, and they were all patting each other on the back, saying how great they all were and how important it was that graduates vote in the future. A few other not-so-subtle digs on Bush and Pataki, but nothing major. Hevesi gets up and gives a normal speech, and towards the end begins talking about how great Schumer is. Then he said -- and I quote because I immediately wrote it down -- Schumer would "put a bullet between the President's eyes if he could get away with it." There were a fair number of gasps, but then of course some people are pretty oblivious at these types of events. It slightly seemed that he caught himself and then said, "Well, he's a really tough guy" or something along those lines -- trying to put the remark in context.
I immediately called the Post and spoke to a reporter, and when I got back from the ceremony today saw that the AP was covering it.
Troublemaker! (only kidding!) LOL Good call!
Thanks for sharing an eye-witness account of this. What will be really, really interesting is to see just how Schumer handles this.
Will he apologize for having someone "speak for him", will he publicly castigate this idiot or will he just smile his little snarky little smile and keep quiet?
Will be interesting.
Bush Lacks Sense of Humor
Chuckie Schumer is scared to death of guns. If he worked up the nerve to pick one up and point it at someone, he'd expect it to go off all by itself.
He should be arrested, and Schumer should sue him for defamation of character (because Hevesi said that SCHUMER had the backbone to put a bullet where I cannot bring myself to quote.) Whatever job Hevesi holds in NY should be vacated immediately because he's on hisway to jail -- or should be.
Thanks for the first hand report.
I'd buy you a bottle of Bourbon if I were there.
No Schumer is scared to death of guns in the hands of citizens.
The police state, and people of privilege, may certainly have fireharms.
Well, Alan Hevesi has officially ended his political career. Many were talking about him as the Next Mayor of New York. That just can't happen now.
Good job! Why didn't they arrest him like they would you or me if we made such a remark?
Most liberals would put a bullet not only between the President's eyes but ours as well if they could get away with it. They honestly don't believe we have the right to criticize them.
BTW, Hevesi just threatened the President of the United States. I look forward to his arrest.
This is the first I've heard of this. Yes, it will be interesting to see the msm spin or they'll totally ignore the remark.
Heh! Kind of like Chuckie's sex life?
Why not? The lefties in tnhe New York establishment share his sentiment.
You might not be 100% right. Look at Chuckies grip with this Tech-9. Girly. But he does seem to be enjoying himself.
