    Protesters Disrupt Senate Armed Services Committee
    A group of 10-12 protesters holding signs and chanting "Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes" disrupted the Senate Armed Services committee this morning. Former secretaries of state Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, and Madeline Albright were waiting to testify.

    At one point Chairman John McCain said, "Get out of here, you low-life scum!" There was a smattering of applause.

    If these protesters were either islamic "rebels" or Ukrainian neo nazis McCain would have been the first to rush over to have his picture taken with them and demand Obama give them all a weapon.

    I saw it, and I think he over reacted. If a politician ever owed the public an apology, IMHO, he owes these folks one. Right or wrong, they were exercising their right to freely speak their minds. Sure they were wrong doing it the way they did, but no elected leader should IMHO refer to constituents as "low-life-scum!" He's beginning to sound like he's been reading the ugly side of this forum:laugh:

    Paul I rarely disagree with you but I must this time. I liked that someone stood up to these radical liberals and called them what they are. Remember McCain has free speech rights also. I wouldn't want him as POTUS, but he has a spine.

    First, McCain showed great restraint at first.

    NO - they did NOT have the right to speak freely.
    It was a hearing with rules.

    The protesters did NOT follow the rules.

    As the Supreme court has said that you do not have a right to yell fire in a crowed theater.
    There is NO absolute right to "free speech"

    Rick, I agree with you on standing up to them. I didn't make myself clear. I meant the use of names he called them was over reacting and unprofessional. I hope that clears my error up! I would've kicked them out too, but calling them "low-life scum!" That was uncalled for!

    Agreed! But McCain should never have dropped to their level. However, I've been sucked to the level of several code pink type liberals here on the forum, so I do understand McCain's fall from the place of keeping it together. These liberals are good at pushing buttons. Remember the the Congressperson who called Obama a liar in that SOTU a few years back?

    I just felt McCain lost it, and while it was justifiable, ir was uncalled for on his behalf. :tear:

    He's a US Senator. There's no reason to be referring to protestors like that. All he had to do was call the Capital police and that would have been that.

    What do you think that you saw? Code Pink is like the Democrat Party version of the Westboro Baptists. Besides, the news is reporting that Kissinger stood up for McCain during the talks with the communists and that McCain is personally grateful to Kissinger. The communists wanted to release him early as a smear because his father and grandfather were admirals. Kissinger said that he would be released with all others.

    What do you think that McCain should do if stuck in a meeting with Jane Fonda?

    Can't help it, but when I heard McCain way, "Get outta here, you low-life scum" my mind flashed back to the scene in Home Alone when the kid is playing an old B&W movie on the TV. Can you hear McCain saying this:

    "Hey, I'm going to give you to the count of 10, to get your ugly, yella, no-good keister outta my conference room, before I pump your guts full of lead! 1...2......10!"

    Yet we all know that if Obama had said the same thing, you would be screaming about how he has disrespected the office.

    It's a non-story. He said it. He probably shouldn't have. But he did. Oh well.

    Keep it moving.

    Actually , no. You just have no clue. As usual.

    I would be surprised and encouraged that he recognized them for what they were and had the courage to say it out loud. But, Being non PC is not in his genes.

    And now for some perspective . . .

    Code Pink lefties make opposition to global elite look clownish.

    Code Pink is known for theatrical leftish antics and its protest against the war criminal and high priest of globalism Henry Kissinger was no exception.

    The clownish demonstration occurred on Thursday during the opening of a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on national security and “global challenges.”

    Thousands of innocents died in Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, East Timor, Chile and Cyprus as a result of decisions made by Kissinger and the global elite.

    Kissinger, however, will never stand trial for any of these crimes and will be heralded as a preeminent elder statesman, a cherished noble prize winner who will continue to be held above reproach.

    Fox News, a trusted government propaganda source, asked how such threatening creatures managed to get anywhere near the Rockefeller minion Kissinger:
    The incident also raised immediate questions about how the demonstrators could get within inches of Kissinger with no apparent interference.
    US Capitol Police spokeswoman Kim Schneider said later the force did not “meet the standards expected of the USCP” during the disruption.

    Code Pink was allowed to crowd Kissinger because they do not actually pose a threat to him or anybody else.

    Code Pink lefties are actors in a play designed to make opposition to the global elite look absurd and disruptive, to portray it as the work of “low-life scum,” as Senate fixture John McCain declared.

    Code Pink is part of a domesticated menagerie of controlled opposition players. It is on the payroll of Winston Foundation, an organization linked to the National Endowment for Democracy, a documented CIA front, and connected as well to the Rockefeller Family Fund, the Carnegie Corporation, the Heinz Family Foundation, and the Soros Foundations. In 2003, Code Pink shared office space with the Institute for Policy Studies, an organization taking money from the Turner, Ford, MacArthur and Charles Stewart Mott foundations. The Ford Foundation is notorious for funding liberal organizations. It is connected to the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the CIA (see Alternative Media Censorship: Sponsored by CIA’s Ford Foundation?).

    To sum up code pink are useful idiots who work for George Soros and the State Department. Sit back and enjoy the show.
