Former White House chief of staff Karl Rove was heckled and branded a "war criminal' at a book signing in Beverly Hills, California, on Monday night.
Rove, who served as senior adviser and deputy chief of staff to President Bush, was at the Saban Theater to discuss his new book, "Courage and Consequences: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight," to an audience of about 100 people who paid up to $40 to hear him.
But the audience members were unable to get their copies of the book signed after Rove was shouted down and forced to leave the stage, reported CNN affiliate KCAL-TV.
The event was heated from the onset as several anti-war protesters interrupted Rove's talk to accuse him and the Bush administration of lying to Americans about the threat Iraq posed to the United States -- and thus, taking the country into war.
Rove called one heckler a "lunatic." He told another to "get the heck out of here."
At one point, Jodie Evans, the co-founder of the anti-war group Code Pink, rushed toward Rove waving a pair of handcuffs and saying she was there to make a citizen's arrest.
Notice how it takes CNN 6 paragraphs to mention that the protesters are from the violent, radically-Left Code Pink. The same Code Pink whose founder Jodie Frank is an admitted 9/11 Truther and former campaign worker for Barack Obama. Code Pink has long been noted for their violent protests in the name of "peace", but the lamestream media doesn't want you to know about that, instead this article focuses on Rove in a manner that makes it seem that he deserved to be heckled. Funny that.
