McCain’s Lowest Moment

John McCain called anti-war protestors “low-life scum” on CSPAN. “Shut up or I’ll have you arrested…”

The people in the room applauded.

Then he apologized to Henry Kissinger about the event. May I remind you that it was Henry Kissinger who said, in Alexander Haig’s presence, that military men are  “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy.

Who is more low-life scum?

  • Those that kill people by the thousands with agent orange, napalm (in Vietnam) or drones, guns and bombs (in Iraq) in the name of the American people?
  • Or those that point out that such atrocities occurred and still occur?

You decide.

  1. I am not a supporter of the protesters or Henry Kissinger as I don’t know enough about him or what they were protesting about, however if this took place in America, where freedom of speech is supposedly such a valued right, then shame on John McCain for what he said to the protestors.
