Good Thing This Isn't Egypt Under Mubarak

Careful — the video below could cause irony overload. Hillary Clinton was piously denouncing erstwhile ally Hosni Mubarak for limiting the free speech of protesters when 71-year-old Army veteran Ray McGovern silently turned his back in a protest of his own. Watch what happens next:

Here's why you'd better not turn your back on Shrillary Rotten:

According to Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, attorney with the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, "For this peaceful expression of dissent, he ended up bruised, bloodied, arrested, and jailed. Secretary Clinton never paused, continuing her speech lecturing other countries about the need to allow freedom of expression and dissent, while Mr. McGovern was hauled out in front of her."
McGovern was later found to have his arm covered with bruises. The metal handcuffs were fastened so tightly that his wrists were cut and some blood flowed from the cuts.
After being held by local police, McGovern was told he was being charged with disorderly conduct.

Still more irony: McGovern is a member of Veterans for Peace — i.e., a moonbat like Shrillary.

On a tip from G. Fox.
