FU*KING PATHETIC!

As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a speech at George Washington University yesterday condemning governments that arrest protestors and do not allow free expression - and lauding freedom of speech on the Internet - 71-year-old military veteran Ray McGovern was grabbed from the audience in plain view of her by police and an unidentified official in plain clothes and hustled out of the building and, according to McGovern and his supporters, was “brutalized and left bleeding in jail.”

What McGovern did was simply remain standing silently in the audience and turned his back on her as Secretary Clinton began her speech.

That was it.

McGovern, a veteran Army officer who also worked as a C.I.A. analyst for 27 years, was wearing Veterans for Peace t-shirt.

Blind-sided by security officers who pounced upon him, McGovern remarked, as he was hauled out the door, "So this is America?"

According to Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, attorney with the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, “For this peaceful expression of dissent, he ended up bruised, bloodied, arrested, and jailed. Secretary Clinton never paused, continuing her speech lecturing other countries about the need to allow freedom of expression and dissent, while Mr. McGovern was hauled out in front of her.”

McGovern was later found to have his arm covered with bruises. The metal handcuffs were fastened so tightly that his wrists were cut and some blood flowed from the cuts.

After being held by local police, McGovern was told he was being charged with disorderly conduct.





Any thoughts residint libtards? Complain about a country thousands of miles away but don't care here? As I have contended thousands of times with my old buddy who can't restrain himself that liberals just don't respect Vets and the military in general.

Our national leadership and their goons have become arrogrant psychopaths. Hammering an old 70 yr old guy for silently standing is just another sign of what the "authotities" are all to eager to do to any of us who steps out of line.. My only critism of this guy's action is that he should have mooned the useless bitch.

Too bad the Us aren't here to see this. Especially Uminchu who proclaimed that the Democrats were more Vet friendly than any one with an R behind their name.

Another one for them Evil.....

More liberal bashing of a vet.....hero in a wheel chair, how low can you guys go?

Columbia University students heckled a war hero during a town-hall meeting on whether ROTC should be allowed back on campus.
"Racist!" some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran.
Maschek, 28, had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue an impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.
"It doesn't matter how you feel about the war. It doesn't matter how you feel about fighting," said Maschek. "There are bad men out there plotting to kill you."

Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.
Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gunfire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.
He enrolled last August at the Ivy League school, where an increasingly ugly battle is unfolding over the 42-year military ban there.
More than half of the students who spoke at the meeting -- the second of three hearings on the subject -- expressed opposition to ROTC's return. Many of the 200 students in the audience held anti-military placards with slogans such as, "1 in 3 female soldiers experiences sexual assault in the military."
The university has created a task force polling 10,000 students on the issue, but would not release the vote tally of the 1,300 who have already responded.
In 2005, when the university last voted to reject ROTC's return, it cited the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
That policy was overturned in December, but resistance remains.
"Transpeople are part of the Columbia community," said senior Sean Udell at the meeting, referring to the military's current ban on transgender soldiers.
Faculty members are divided.
"Universities should not be involved in military activities," Sociology Professor Emeritus Herbert Gans told The Post. "Columbia should come out against spending $300 billion a year on unnecessary wars."
A group of 34 faculty colleagues, including historian Kenneth Jackson and former Bloomberg adviser Esther Fuchs, plan to announce their support of ROTC tomorrow.
José Robledo, 30, a Columbia student who commutes to Fordham University for ROTC coursework, said he found the treatment of Maschek abhorrent.
"The anti-ROTC side has been disrespectful and loud. They hiss and they jeer," he said. "It's been to the detriment of the argument."

As a 21 year career military veteran myself, I am absolutely and steadfastly conservative. I can attribute my stance on the hard work that myself and others had to accomplish in order to succeed in the military. It was the liberals who consistently bashed us through the years and yet we fought on to protect their rights to bash those that were protecting their sorry azz's. When I was very young, I can say I was leaning liberal but with time, maturity and experience, my eyes opened up and I am who I am today because of the military.
I saw one sign posted earlier that said that "The military targets low income families". I can say that is true because the military provides a person the ability to change the vicious cycle of poverty within a family. I am a fine example of what good the military can do for a person. I grew up in a single parent home with no father anywhere to be found. If it weren't for the military providing an opportunity for me to succeed, I would still be living in the same dysfunctional way of life probably earning little more than minimum wage.
I have to give thanks to military veterans of the past, present and future as if it weren't for the military.....I'd be a slug on society too.

Well, a 42 year ROTC ban, the mention of catering to the "transpeople" of the community by the Senior, in regards to the military rejecting transsexuals.
Happened at Columbia Univ..
Safe bet, I would think.....:)bulb

I'm not into profiling anybody. Again...Sad no matter who was behind it. :mad:
]


It's not about profiling...why don't you guys stand up to those extremes on your side and so this is not tolerated.....would make this a better country. BTW....I know you will throw out the rights extremes.....you have seen me denounce many times implied violence to the person posing as the president.....I and many here oppose the rights extremes always.

Also, University has not allowed ROTC on campus, birthed Barry and is widely known for its far left leaning stance.....I think you can still carry your lib card and acknowledge this fact and easy assumption???????????

Let us not forget Columbia welcomed Achmdickhead to speak when he visited the UN. Further proof of the socialistic favoring towards the world's despots.

Hildabeast showed her true colors when the incident happened in front of her and she didn't bat an eye. More proof she stepped aside for HusseinO allowing him to begin H&C overthrow of the American way of life.

2 very sad examples of what the current regime has lowered itself to and why they all need to be removed come 2012.....And the mainstream media hasn't spoken on either issue, at least to an extent the nation is bussing aloud.
