This is really disgusting. A University of Florida student attempted to ask Senator John Kerry a few questions about his concession of the 2004 election and also about impeaching the Bush White House before they decided to attack Iran. These seem like fair questions.
But not, apparently, to Florida State Police, who in a clear act of censorship, removed the student from the podium, attempted to handcuff him, and when he did not respond, tazered him. Crooks and Liars picks up the story with the highly-circulated YouTube.com video here:
U.S. Sen. John Kerry’s speech at the University of Florida came to a dramatic close Monday, shortly after a vocal audience member was hauled off by police and shot with a Taser gun. The audience member was preliminarily identified by UF officials as Andrew Meyer, a UF student in the College of Journalism and Communications.
And just in case you were afraid the mainstream media would cover this objectively, breath a sigh of relief:
Videos show Meyer being pulled away from the microphone after as he sought to ask Kerry, D-Mass., a rambling series of questions that touch on allegations of voting improprieties in the 2004 election, possible impeachment of President Bush, Iran, and Kerry’s membership in Yale’s secret Skull and Bones society.
Watch the video. Does this man really seem to be “rambling” to you? He doesn’t to me. He sounds like a man who wants to get his point across before he’s taken away in handcuffs by the Florida State goon squad. John Kerry could also have done a lot more to defend a fellow activist than just trying to droll on like nothing happened. You can hear him doing just that in the background as the student repeatedly asks why he is being arrested and receives no answer.
What a country we’ve become. This man John Kerry is a leader?
