Somehow I suspect all the conservative whiners will somehow manage to not comment on why this is OK but people chanting 'Death To Obama' is acceptable free speech.

It seems that the protesters (not just one, but many) were for HIV/AIDS funding, to which McCain has not committed to. A comment by one of the protesters on the Fox News site will say it way better than I can:

"I was one of the protesters at this event. The reason for the protest was that we actually have asked him MANY times to commit to funding for HIV/AIDS, actually we’ve asked him for more than that, and he, like the other republican candidates who we’ve also asked the same questions to, has not committed to funding at all. Our largest asks is that he commit for the U.S. to give aid to 1/3 of the people in the world with the disease, our fair share as we control 1/3 of the wealth in the world.

McCain hides behind generalizations like “corrupt governments” who do not deserve money to help their people. He doesn’t care that 8,000 people die every day around the world from HIV/AIDS. The truth is, the money the United States would spend would really be given to non-governmental organizations, on the ground so that it was in direct contact with the people who need it.

He’s been asked, politely many many times already. We are tired of his lack of response, and we hope that our drastic measures will allow him to understand that we are in fact very serious about this issue.

And at the very end, he did allow the girl he was talking to in this clip to ask a question, she asked two, he answered one, and he still stuck to his line that he will not fund corrupt governments.

He needs to come out with a plan, if it’s not ours, then he needs one that will work for him, but he hasn’t seen the last of us.

Really though, the comments fucking own the 5 star rating for this:

"Those protesters were totally out of line. What was their point? It was a small townhall meeting so anyone could have just got up and asked a question. There was no need for protests. And why at a McCain rally? Whats he got to do with AIDS funding?"

...God damn, what a jackass.

Real quick... here's another one:

"I AGREE WITH NAVIN, WHAT DOES JOHN MCAIN HAVE TO DO WITH AIDS, HE OFFERED TO LET THEM SPEAK AFTER HE WAS FINISHED, BUT THEY JUST ACTED LIKE JERKS…….THEY WERE OUT OF LINE"

Can that cognitive_dissonance guy come in here and help these people sort out their bizarre gaps in logic please?

Toenails
Okay. Last one I swear.

This one will really fucking steam you all, I guarantee it:

"Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time."

Good work.

Toenails, you rock my world.

5 stars for Fox's SHOWING HECKLERS THE DOOR instead of the SUPPRESSING THE PEOPLE'S WILL dreck they roll out whenever a sane politician shows an inch of backbone in the face of warbling pre-paid masses.

Fox News is doubleplusgood for good news on why we should think what Fox News tells us to.

Camonk
Five stars for the imagined Daily Show commentary on this.

Someone better be putting this in Stewart's physical In Box for when he gets back.

He's like: "CALLED YOU ON IT!"
They're like: "WE DON'T CARE!"
