In the last weeks, we have seen their courage on display in the streets of Tunis and the town squares of Cairo. We have watched with great anticipation as they have stood up for their rights and aspirations.As she spoke these words, standing up in the audience, as is his right in the United States of America, was Ray McGovern. He turned his back to her and stood silently. He has done this before, as is his right in the United States of America.
Or is it?
As he stood there, two security guards came up, grabbed him, thrust him about, and dragged him from the room. As he was being forcibly removed, he shouted, "This is America?"
Here are two pictures of him, taken at the hospital where he had his injuries from being assaulted by Clinton's stooges treated:
I find it fascinating that some of the news coverage of Clinton's speech about human rights, the rights of assembly and genuine grievances people may have against their governing figures, omitted any mention of this hugely ironic scene. This Bloomberg article fails to mention the assault on McGovern. Even the youtube posted above calls him a "heckler," when he said nothing to HRC, and only spoke to protest his manhandling.
McGovern has been charged with disorderly conduct.
