Karl Rove was speaking before about a 100 fans and supporters in Beverly Hills on Tuesday when his speech was interrupted by protesters from the radical left-wing group Code Pink. Rove did battle with the protesters for a short while before ultimately cutting his speech short.
The Code Pink loons attempted to make a citizen’s arrest of Karl Rove for “war crimes.” This has been the latest craze on the crazed left, with protesters recently trying to “arrest” the health care companies in Washington D.C.
Reality check: There is no federal citizen’s arrest law and the state laws vary, but most require that you witness an offense and that the offense be a felony. As far as the SEIU lemmings in D.C., making 4% profit is still legal in this country and as such your “arrest” attempt on the insurance companies makes you look (even more) foolish.
For the Code Pinkos in Beverly Hills, Rove is a private citizen and no one witnessed him committee any crimes. Moreover, Rove never stepped foot on a battlefield nor did he ever give a single order to military personnel and thus he could not have committed any war crimes. Not that any intelligent people take the pro-Palestinian, Jew hating Code Pink squad seriously anyway.
Unlawful attempts at a citizens arrest can, ironically, get the ‘arrester’ arrested by the real police. Which baits the next point. . .
Where Were the Police?
While I am sure that cops in Beverly Hills have a bunch of stuff to do, like catching self-important spoiled little tweens smoking pot, you would think that there would have been at least a small police presence. If a controversial figure like Karl Rove was speaking in my district, I would make security accommodations simply to avoid a violent situation if protesters did show up.
Where Was Rove’s Security?
Karl Rove should have had a security detail of his own. Period. He has the financial resources and he knows that there are a bunch of people who do not like him. Find some off duty or retired cops and pay them to attend your events as security. It would not take but a few of them to chase away the Code Piknos. Maybe hire a few out of work soldiers and throw some bones their way.
The Bottom Line
If Rove was a liberal and the protesters called themselves ‘Tea Party’ members, we would be hearing all over the news about how the “tea baggers” got violent again. The media would be falling all over itself to link a couple of psychos to the mainstream American movement against big government.
When is protesting the Iraq War going to lose its allure? Listen up all hippies, pacifists and members of the far left: We are there. We are winning. It is almost over. There were NO lies, just some bad information. We DID find chemical weapons and uranium, just not as much as we thought. There certainly was oil, but it was not the reason for the war and we certainly did not take any of it. Please, GET OVER IT. If you want to protest a war, protest Obama’s war on liberty and freedom.
After a week of working hard to link opponents of Obamacare to every alleged threat or racial slur that may have taken place (and largely ignoring things like bullets fired at republican offices), the media will have to work hard to ignore this more recent bit, lest they remind the American people of the hypocrisy and stupidity of today’s American left.
