A Senate hearing opened this morning with Code Pink protesters trying to arrest former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for “war crimes.”
The protesters, bearing signs reading “Kissinger War Criminal” and “Cambodia,” rushed up behind the 91-year-old diplomat at the witness table of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which was holding a hearing on global challenges and the U.S. national security strategy.
Also testifying were 94-year-old former Secretary of State George P. Shultz and 77-year-old former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
The protestors were loud and unrelenting and John McCain didn’t mince words expressing his displeasure with them:
“I’ve been a member of this committee for many years, and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place,” McCain said, which led to shout-backs from the protesters.
“You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested. If we can’t get the Capital Hill Police in here immediately… Get out of here, you low-life scum,” McCain added.
“So Henry, I hope you will — Dr. Kissinger, I hope on behalf of all of the members of this committee on both sides of the aisle — in fact, from all of my colleagues, I’d like to apologize for allowing such disgraceful behavior towards a man who served his country with the greatest distinction. I apologize profusely.”
McCain could have simply acknowledged their constitutional right to express themselves and respectfully expressed his own disagreement with what they said. But instead, McCain went on an all out frontal assault against the protestors, apologizing “profusely” to a man known the world over as a war criminal and shamelessly insulting, with the utmost contempt, Americans who have the courage to stand up and protest his continued involvement in US foreign policy.
Christopher Hitchens, the British-American journalist and author, was highly critical of Kissinger, [in] The Trial of Henry Kissinger, [where] Hitchens called for the prosecution of Kissinger “for war crimes, for crimes against humanity, and for offenses against common or customary or international law, including conspiracy to commit murder, kidnap, and torture”.
With anger and tensions continuing to rise, as they are, between angry Americans and their out-of-touch ruling class, it won’t be long before the fragile decorum of political correctness that keeps us civil gives way to a tsunami of raging opposition that will not be quelled.
protesters were right, john Mc Cain was disgusting. wake up america and read your history!
johnny boys father covered up the USS Liberty insident. Kissenger should be execurted along with a huge number of past perpatraitors during those historic years of war crimes by the US govt. Now we citizens have to carry that disgraceful burden.
Wow, what courage these protester’s have! If we had a few million like them then the world would heal, almost instantly. I am so impressed with the courage these folks have, they are at once my hero’s. Superhero’s.
That puke, old poopy pants McCain, has never before seen such courage as he saw from these dear protester’s, must have made him so envious that he just lost it. Really, all the paid off politicians in that meeting must have thought if only I had such courage as these then I could have immortality. As it is, the faster we can forget these dirty pants politicians holding the reins today, the better. I call them dirty pants because you must know they all have tire tracks in their underwear, stinky, a matter of them always digging in their butts so much, worms, or something else, having to do with their sex lives. Imagine, what old Hillary Clinton’s drawers look like, if you can, all stained and crusted, I’d bet. No amount of bleach can clean the underwear of these political creeps. All the blackmail pictures holding these politicians in place, for the Jews to handle, they must be doing something unnatural…
One of the protester’s should have hollered: Hey McCain, I smell your poopy underwear, better go change, old man…that would have shut him up.
McCain, what a disgusting piece of garbage.
Thus sprach Hanoi john McCain.

Seems like McCain never has a look in his mirror if he has never before seen such “Lowlife Scum”
My respects to Code Pink. Wish I were there and could throw a shoe at the Low Life Scum, McCain, the rapist of mankind. Why do these bastards always have to be Americans?

Back in 2000, in South Carolina, the robocalls–and calls to local right-wing talk radio shows–were about John McCain’s “interracial child” and Cindy McCain’s drug addiction. They were a craven, cowardly tactic by the W-rong. Bush campaign and a direct insult to McCain’s WIFE. McCain lost ALL my respect when he went on to support Bush.
Furthermore, McCain is OVER Arizona’s Term Limits law.
These are our questions to Senator McCain:
1 Why did you have your service record and POW debriefing classified FOREVER?
2 Did you provide military secrets to North Vietnam as stated by Colonel Earl Hopper of Army Intelligence?
3 Did you narrate 32 propaganda broadcasts for the North Vietnamese and give interviews to communist papers as is stated at http://www.mccainbetrayspows.com?
4 Why have you kept your Presidential Pardon secret? Did you know that you are the only person serving in Congress with a Presidential pardon?
5 Was Colonel Hopper accurate when he accused you of providing flight paths and altitude information to North Vietnamese gunners, to help them shoot down American planes?
6 Are you aware that Colonel Ted Guy was in the process of preparing treason charges against you when you received your presidential pardon?
7 Why did you work to end all POW inquires? Why are you referred to as the Manchurian Candidate by POW/MIA groups? http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/mccain-and-the-pow-cover-up/
Their not always Americans, how about the English, the Israelis, the French and the Merkel Germans, how about that bunch in Ukraine, etc.,etc., there is plenty of political scum to dirty the world with their self serving, for a few million dollars more, blood thirsty, war mongering ways. I read a comment somewhere, recently, the commenter asked how do these crud’s get themselves to such a place where they can cause so much harm to the world? I think, they are “chosen.” Who chooses them, the Rothschilds army of government infiltrator’s, that’s who. All of this is well thought out, all of it is on purpose, the purpose is to make the few with all the money, richer. They, can never get enough and I don’t think we can give them enough, so sometime, soon I hope, we are going to haft to have a reckoning. Soon, while there is still a world left, for us.

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.” — Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburgers meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.
