Protesters interrupt McCain speech
54 minutes ago


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Anti-war protesters briefly interrupted John McCain's acceptance speech Thursday night at the Republican National Convention. The nominee told supporters "don't be diverted by the crowd noise and the static."

One male protester and two female protesters were removed from the hall by security officers. The male demonstrator had a sign that read "You can't win an occupation" on one side, and "McCain votes against vets" on the other side.

The crowd tried to drown them out with chants of, "USA, USA."

"My friends, my dear friends ... please, please don't be diverted by the crowd noise and the static," McCain said. "I'm going to talk about it some more, but Americans want us to stop yelling at each other."


What happened to the person that the security guard seemed to be brutalizing before the camera turned away?

It takes a lot of courage to do what they did and a lot of really in depth planning to get past security under those conditions.

Isn't freedom wonderful!!

According to Tapped, the protester who was arrested -- I assume that's who you're talking about -- was a Ron Paul supporter from Vets Against The War. (I think that's the name of the organization.)

The one I am talking about comes in at 1:00 in this video. Does it look to you like they were sort of jerked really hard or maybe snatched? It is hard to tell in that one second or so frame.

[It takes a lot of courage to do what they did and a lot of really in depth planning to get past security under those conditions.} I agree it took some gut's to do that but according to the morning news they were able to get in by simply waiting outside for some one to leave & asking them for their pass so they could gain entry..If these are the people who want to protect our country for the next 4 yrs I think it's time to get another gun & a bigger dog

wharfrat...WOW!! Are you serious? They just walked in? I hadn't read that. How embarrassing for the Republicans! And you are right about more guns and bigger dogs.
