I don't believe people are as surprised as they are upset this behavior is happening Jdub.
2nd line!


Funny how you phrased that. When you say, "upset about this behavior," you could refer to the vet's behavior as well as the administration's!

I'm willing to bet that a large number are upset about the vet.

Again, note the absence of our most prominent liberal members from this discussion; yet there are 44 flags and dozens of stars with only a bit over a handful of unique authors.

People are watching, reading, voting, yet unwilling to speak up against a thuggish, manipulative, lying administration.

It's too quiet for all the "confetti" thrown here.

Great, telling and timely thread, by the way.

MOST US politicians are such a bunch of hypocrites it makes me sick to my stomach. I was watching RT the other night and they aired Obama praising the Egyptian people for overthrowing the dictator Mubarak and basically trying to take credit for spreading democracy and I got so angry as this is the same Mubarak that the US were supporting without any problems for the past 30 years. The fact that the US government is trying to somehow share in the glory of the Egyptian peoples win over the Mubarak regime is what disgusts me the most. The US had absolutely nothing to do with their victory and would have been much happier if Mubarak remained in power. Such a bunch of hypocrites it is disgusting and they are only fooling a very small amount of people.

Thus far I haven't seen it covered in the mainstream media either.
I am fuming. I suppose this is the type of Orwellian behavior we should come to expect in the future if our country continues heading in the direction it is.

Me thinks we're already there...

Amazing, what kind of government we have. "We the people", my butt. This country's leadership is a massive fascade masked by a nice portrait of what it used to be.

When a senior is beaten because he chose to both silently and peacefully protest, with a history of being a peaceful demonstrator, it just proves that this country is ALREADY in a police-state, it's just covered with a thin coat of paint. Well, that paint is beginning to chip and soon, even the "sheepiest of the sheep" will "Bahhhh" loudly at what they see...

in my personal opinion there needs to be a little revolution here at home the constitution was built to avoid "any form of tyrranical government from taking over" the right of the people "to alter or abolish the government" i dont understand how it has not happened yet the other parts of the world are stepping up to the plate while we are ever lacking. that man was harming no one he was breaking no rules what so ever he was assulted on national televison and no one has been arrested...but my fellow americans continue to eat their oats?

What is outrageous is the sheer calmness that this witch has and goes on as if nothing is happening.

Wake up people. You WILL be next.

How can she just keep talking like that, with that cold look on her face as if absolutely nothing is going on? Because she's programmed to do that, to properly act her part of the show even if world is ending. She looks like a robot to me, just a life-like narrator of pre-written propaganda piece, diligently farming political points as much as possible. You can hate Bush but his "I'm just a dumb Texan" strategy at least looks more natural.... and allows him to properly evade shoes, he'd react to this scandal properly unlike Clinton
. My favorite was his "get a job" reply when M. Moore asked him something about 9/11, Clinton wouldn't even look at Moore, hired goons would be there to "dispose" of him

Well of course they're not speaking out against it, save for those that did on the front page, mainly because the conservatives aren't guilty of this same kind of behavior...

Oh wait, scratch that.

Why turn this into another partisan argument, when both sides are guilty of doing it, and both sides need to be stopped?

Interestingly enough, in his recent mainstream news tour for his book, Rummsfeld addressed the very questions asked in this video distancing himself by trying to clarify his statements as out of context. No mention of this incident at all of course. I had no prior knowledge of this incident with the ex-CIA agent, so this is a little eye opening seeing how Rummsfeld is publicly creating a damage control effect afterwords.

I agree. She just kept talking like a robot, she didn't miss ONE word of her speech. That creeps me out.

I know Ray McGovern has done some good things in the 9/11 truth/Iraq war arena, . . . but . . .

The We Are Change guys have a superior strategy when it comes to speaking truth to power and that is, open your mouth and ask reasonable and pointed questions.

Wake up Mr. McGovern! Would you play Mr. Nice Guy to the Nazis? Ask a pointed question!! You're not Marcel Marceau and these times call for more than a pantomine. You're a disgrace to the dirty tricks department at the CIA. When you make a move, make it count.

Well...I'm gonna play devil's advocate here.

There are other people there attending this speech...they are all sitting down. Yes, standing up and turning your back on the speaker is a swell form of peaceful protest...but what about the people sitting behind this man? Do they not deserve to view this speech without being obstructed by this man?

Now, I would also believe that he was first ASKED to leave or to sit down...he obviously did not comply. Now when they show him attempt to escort him out...he resisted. So they then, and only then, forcefully removed him.

Bottom line is that his form of protest was obstructing/interfering with others there in attendance. And force was only used once he resisted.

Yeah...I'm sure I'll get flamed for this...but it is how I see it.

Is this See Something, Say Something at work?

"Look, that old man is wearing a shirt promoting peace, and he's not saying anything or in the camera's way. How suspicious! He must be a terrorist."

There is nothing wrong at all playing devils advocate. It makes the conversation more dynamic and
can bring up points or issues that would not exist if no one did play devils advocate. I might not agree but everyone is entitled to their opinion.
