Breaking News: Ray McGovern Brutalized & Left Bleeding by Hillary Clinton Police, “So this is America!”

Wednesday, 16. February 2011 by Sibel Edmonds

To Those Who Second-Guess Our Police State Status: Shame on You!

I just received the following news and I am way too upset to write a coherent piece on this. Ray McGovern is a good friend of mine. We live less than 10 miles apart. Together we have participated in many events and protests. He is one of the most informed, articulate, gentle, peace-loving and peace-seeking human beings I’ve ever known…For me, this hits too close to home: My father was similarly brutalized by dictator regimes, and that was only the beginning, before it escalated to being tortured and having his toenails pulled out by the state police. Why? He was a doctor, a surgeon with an inquiring mind, and he spoke out whenever he could against dictatorships and for liberties. Participating in peaceful demonstrations, encouraging others to rise up for their rights, and reading authors such as Steinbeck (the American author black-listed there as ‘communist and anarchist’) landed him on the list of to-be-punished and pacified…

Right now, at this point, all I have to say to those who second-guess our nation’s police state status is this: “Shame on you!” As for my irate minority friends over here at Boiling Frogs, please help disseminate this news, because the scum bag media won’t;’ thank you.

At Clinton Speech: Veteran Bloodied, Bruised & Arrested for Standing Silently

As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave her speech at George Washington University yesterday, condemning governments that arrest protestors and do not allow free expression, 71-year-old Ray McGovern was grabbed from the audience in plain view of her by police and an unidentified official in plain clothes, brutalized and left bleeding in jail. She never paused speaking. When Secretary Clinton began her speech, Mr. McGovern remained standing silently in the audience and turned his back. Mr. McGovern, a veteran Army officer who also worked as a C.I.A. analyst for 27 years, was wearing a Veterans for Peace t-shirt.

Blind-sided by security officers who pounced upon him, Mr. McGovern remarked, as he was hauled out the door, “So this is America?” As you see, Mr. McGovern is covered with bruises, lacerations and contusions inflicted in the assault.

Saddens me that so many

sheeple just sat there and did nothing while a man that was peacefully and quietly protesting was taken out and beaten by the SS. Real patriots would have risen to their feet, apprehended the thugs that were violating the peaceful protester and then taken Hitlary out to a strong tree and showed her some patriotic justice.

Is it just me or would anybody else like to see Hillary and her friends publicly caned...the way they do it in Singapore.


hypocrisy sickens me! I sent the article to my local newspaper...this is going viral...

A call for Clinton to resign

This is what should have been done at CPAC!

Instead of booing and shouting "war criminal" imagine if a couple hundred liberty lovers stood up quietly and turned their backs to Rumsfeld and Cheny.

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for
yourself the alternative of choice. Without the responsibility and exercise
of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.
-- Archibald Macleish

Or sat down, crossed their legs and read the newspaper

Funny and effective.

Has Anyone Else Noticed

how these sort of things are happening more and more lately? People are sick and tired of these politicians and their hypocrisy and lies and they're standing up. The MSM isn't catching on though.

This is what I posted:

Hey, don't go messin' with Queen Hilary! Notice that she didn't even blink or acknowledge in any way this was happening right in front of her? Poor woman, she must be vision & hearing impaired from all those years of looking the other way while her husband was fucking around.

Human Rights Defenders Demand Apology on Behalf of Ray McGovern

American human rights defenders are leading a public outcry throughout the nation since Tuesday, February 14 when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave her talk on freedom in foreign countries during which U.S. Veteran Ray McGovern was forced from the audience, brutalized, and jailed after standing peacefully wearing a Vets For Peace t-shirt with his back turned on Clinton. National organizations are demanding that Secretary Clinton apologize for the rights violation.

If you are so moved, go to this link at Veterans for Peace and sign their letter to Hilary Clinton asking her to apologize to Mr. McGovern and rectify the hypocrisy of her speech. Letter also deals with Bradley Manning and Julian Assange. Letterbomb!

Here is a much clearer YouTube link:

They will

be "Shocked! Shocked!" I say, when this same thing starts happening to them, and they are dragged off the podiums by the crowd.

The ONLY thing stopping this from happening is the "good graces" of the population who is trying to keep the American system intact, in the face of these brutal oppressors' corruption.
If the worm turned, these politicians would have no place to hide.

The video shows we have no freedom of speech.

This could almost have been a script for some kind of joke. While she is talking about freedom of speech, her thugs are abusing this innocent man for merely turning his back to her. Her blatant hypocrisy is staggering! Who is she to talk about Egypt?

Thanks for taking the rap Ray. Peace be with you.

Thanks YumYum for adding youtube

Free includes debt-free!


are as dirty as they come. Part of the 911 cover up, everytime Bill gets confronted about 911 he goes into that "How Dare You" bullshit about being unpatriotic. I guess if all you do is listen, agree, and fall in line then your a true patriot. These dictators ought to be locked up at best.

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Honest, bold posts should be bumped!

enough from me.

They will flee this country...

...when the SHTF. People like the Clintons will be in hiding somewhere in the Bahamas.

When America goes to the streets to protest, we aren't going to be like Egypt. G-d help us all.

No, No, they will be in

No, No, they will be in Paraguay snorting lines of coke with the Bush's on their big ranchero.

Sending articles from the Daily Paul to the Boiling Frog...

...is a great idea, Mark Twain. I'm sure they would appreciate what we are doing and the links we will provide.

Thank you for your attention on this matter.

I gave another round of minor edits to my previous post. Your forum is drawing supportive interest. Figured I would straighten my tie. Thank you.

Sibel Edmonds, "Boiling Frong Post" & Ray McGovern story.

Dear YumYum,

Subject: Boiling Frogs

Reference: Sibel Edmonds- "Boiling Frogs," Founder & Publisher

This is a most disturbing subject. I am fond of frogs. I owe a great deal of my success to these higher beings.

That said, I am particularly fond of the forthright work Miss Edwards has taken upon herself. Her heart wrenching retelling of her friend turning his back to Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State. He is violently beaten. Clinton continues waxing eloquent about liberty. Hypocrisy! Ardent support of liberty leads us Boiling Frogs, the web site. Though I am squeamish about the name, I have the utmost respect & admiration for Edwards' selfless dedication to her causes. He are her words describing her activity. I will hold my tongue, & allow her to speak for herself.

We here at DailyPaul, me especially, would be delighted to have her review what we provide here. Perhaps as a goodwill gesture, you could propose our sites cross link each other. Links make powerful liberty sites all the more so.

Boiling Frogs Frogs Post is an online news, editorial, analysis, and Podcast interview site covering select but significant blacked out stories and issues, while defying blinded partisanship. Each one of our partner investigative journalists brings 20+ years of investigative journalism experience in reporting controversial and daring topics. Our weekly Podcast interview series, the Boiling Frogs Show, features in depth original interviews with well-respected and controversial guests.

This site has been set up to bring together members of the irate minority club: Those who have gotten tired of the very-dependent mainstream media & and the agenda-driven and partisan pseudo alternative fluff sites. We may be the irate minority out there, but over here we are the majority, so we rule. Together we hope to increase our numbers and take back our hijacked nation.

Thank you for bringing the plight of Ray McGovern to my attention. My regards to Mr Ray McGovern & Miss Edwards. May Mr McGovern get well soon. Perhaps he may wish to convalesce reading some of your recommended DailyPaul posts, Sam Adams for example.

Here is a doctor I have heard about. Though I have not met him personally, his advice is freely available for healing.

Hippocrates (460 BC to 377 BC)

Hippocrates held the belief that the body must be treated as a whole and not just a series of parts. He accurately described disease symptoms and was the first physician to accurately describe the symptoms of pneumonia, & epilepsy in children. He believed in the natural healing process of rest, a good diet, fresh air and cleanliness.

I hope his legal case can make some very

big media waves -- and that he gets a lot of money to donate to antiwar causes.

Think she should be sued directly!?

(I sure do)
