It is almost inconceivable that anyone, let alone a respected 78-year-old, could be thrown to the ground, handcuffed and treated like a criminal because of what?
Because he was protesting against the fact that his government ignored the Geneva Conventions and tortured people? With impunity?
Of course this sort of things happens every day.
Listen to the command to “stop resisting.”
Stop resisting. That is the new battle cry of the republic.
Stop resisting. Anything.
Stop resisting even the most common-sense human urge to resist against state-sponsored torture.
Hats off to Mr. McGovern.
Surely he did not expect to be treated like a prisoner at Gitmo for speaking his mind.
Surely people will see how he was treated in his own country and perhaps even they will ingore the call to Stop Resisting.
