A veteran attending the national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars was manhandled by his fellows when he stood up during a speech by President Barack Obama and lifted a sign in protest. The sign read, “The emperor has no clothes” and referenced the September 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi, Libya.
An NBC News social media post on the incident referred to the elder as a “protestor” and did not credit him as a veteran.
A man tried to protest President Obama during a veterans event, but the crowd wouldn’t stand for it.
No doubt, the act of protest violated protocol. Apparently, when weighed against the gravity of the Benghazi incident and Obama’s role, this veteran felt it was worth it.
