Obama Heckler: “I think killing innocent people with drones is rude”

(Well done Medea for coming across as very calm, well-informed and well-spoken in the face of a very patronising news anchor!)

A CNN host called peace activist, Medea Benjamin, “rude” for interrupting the president’s foreign policy speech. “I think killing innocent people with drones is rude,” Benjamin replied. “I think keeping innocent people in detention for 11 years is rude. I think not respecting the lives of Muslim people who are killed is rude. There are a lot of rude things about our policies. Speaking out is actually not rude.”

    I like how the anchor interrupts to say that interrupting makes you a heckler.

    Anyone dumb enough to believe this president’s words make any difference may as well be a Bush Supporter. Without action, this guy is carrying on Bush’s policies without being honest enough to admit it.
