McCain to CodePink: “Get out of here you low-life scum.”

McCain to CodePink: “Get out of here you low-life scum.”

John McCain throws Code Pink out of a Senate hearing.

Every once in a while, John McCain does the exact right thing. This was one of those times.

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing yesterday, leftist Code Pink activists disrupted the session to verbally assault Henry Kissinger who was there to testify on national security issues.

John McCain was having none of it and even received applause for shutting the protesters down.

Alexander Mallin of ABC News:

Senator John McCain Calls Out Protesters Who Swarmed Henry Kissinger

Sen. John McCain earned some applause inside a Senate Armed Services hearing this morning after he erupted at protesters of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, calling them “low-life scum.”

“I’ve been a member of this committee for many years, and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place,” said McCain, R-AZ.

Protesters from the group CodePink swarmed behind Kissinger as he arrived alongside two other former Secretaries of State, Madeleine Albright and George Shultz, for a hearing on U.S. national security strategy.

They held up signs calling Kissinger a criminal and chanted “arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes” — citing some of his more controversial decisions during the Nixon and Ford administrations.

“You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested,” McCain said as Capitol Hill Police tried to remove the protesters. “Get out of here you low-life scum.”

CSPAN captured the entire exchange on video:

If Code Pink is a “progressive” group, why are they protesting Kissinger? He left the state department in the 1970’s.

Good thing I have been vaccinated against low-life scum.

I could be wrong, but isn’t Code Pink formally KAOS, a Delaware for profit corp.?
Agent 13, hand me my pink shoe phone. I want to call the Chief.

With all due respect, Johnny Mac DID NOT throw the low-life scum out. They were politely escorted back to their prominent seats. This is such a joke! The low life scums are accommadated at these hearings by the committees and security. Isn’t it more than obvious what they are going to do when they show up? They had ONE security guard and he allowed them to act like fools for a full minute. After a minute they slowly retreated and took their seats. Did you see the scum that went around the witness table to video the demonstration?

I’m convinced that the committees work with that Benjamin woman to make this happen. It is all so staged and choreographed. No one ever gets hurt. Remember the fake blood and Condi? This is just theater.

Interesting, the Capitol Hill PD is just as competent as HHS & CMS.

Lets run down the known facts:

1) A major hearing of an important Senate Committee
2) Prominent GOP Witnesses
3) A Large contingent of Code Pinkers in attendance, one of which goes through visitor screening with handcuffs in their possession.
5) A known history of Code Pinkers actively interrupting Congressional hearings where prominent GOP witnesses are testifying.

Yet, no one in Cap Hill PD Command thought that all those coincidences might not be – you know – a coincidence and thought “Maybe we might need to have a few extra officers somewhere near that hearing room”.

Where does a taxpayer file a claim to get their money back from the Cap Hill PD?

    They were hot on the postpartum woman in the car a while back. They got her stopped before she got outta her car. Good thing the baby was unharmed.

Are the GOPers finally starting to grow a pair?
Or is this just theater to make us believe so?


    When Capital PD leads the protesters out in handcuffs and the local DA charges them with assault (touching or threatening to touch in an offending manner), AND the charges are prosecuted with JAIL TIME rather than a fine, then it will be the GOP growing a pair.

    One day John McCain went to Ted Cruz and said “Ted, I’d like my constituents to think I’ve got a pair like you do. What should I do?” Ted said “John, take a potato and stick it down your pants before the next committee meeting.”

    A few days later, McCain came up to Cruz and said “Ted, it didn’t work! I did what you said and everybody just laughed at me (again)!” Cruz said “John, you were supposed to put the potato down the FRONT of your pants!”

    This is actually not unusual behavior for Sen. McCain. He has always be pretty vocal against the “Anti-War” crowd. Just wait McConnell will probably issue and apology on behalf of the Senate to the low life scum.

The author is correct, McCain is generally useless but occasionally awesome. Remember the time he choked a Sandinista? He denies this of course, and Thad Cochran tried to use it as a detraction. But, I have to be honest, picturing McCain reaching across a table and choking a communist was the image I focused on as I pulled the lever for him in 2008 just so I could not throw up.

Concur that the Senate is far too tolerant of such theatrics, and that these public transgressions should end up costing the transgressors something they value.


Code Pink is more valuable to congressional GOP-ers showing their collective and considerable asses in hearings than they are in jail. Makes rinoism and Progressive Light seem downright Amurrican in contrast.

BTW & O/T – Romney has announced he will not run in 2016. For president. Of the US.

Lost in it all is the reason why Kissinger was there to start with. He’s been called to testify on shuttle diplomacy with Russia. A year into Ukraine crisis we’ve realized that maybe we should try it. Personally, I’d like to see Russian concessions in the Middle East…

I also find it interesting that these screaming morons always say; “Arrest so and so for War Crimes”, but then if you try to nail them down on exactly what “war crime” they say so and so has committed there are only 4 responses that you seem to get.

1: Blank Stare
2: Angry expression
3: An verbal answer that starts with either “I feel…” or “the unlawful invasion of…where ever” or something equally moronic.
4: A combination of the first 3.

They can never seem to articulate what “crime” their chosen target has committed.

Was McCain looking in the mirror when he said that?

Code Pink are eternal hippies and are eternally stuck in the 1970s. Back then, their bell bottoms dragged the ground. Now, their unfettered old boobs drag the ground.
