Students Pelt Karl Rove After Speech at American University

Typical liberal hypocrisy followed by typical liberal spin on the part of AU and the media. If these had been pro-life demonstrators protesting, they would have been arrested. – Students Pelt Karl Rove After Speech at American University – Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum
WASHINGTON — White House adviser Karl Rove was confronted by protesters as he tried to leave a speaking engagement Tuesday night at American University.

Rove was a speaker at an event sponsored by the American University College Republicans. The group, which claims more than 600 members, billed the Republican strategist’s appearance as a discussion of electoral politics and the importance of college Republicans in winning elections.

According to a university spokesperson, when Rove tried to leave a campus building, he was confronted by more than a dozen protesters. Some protesters reportedly threw items at Rove and his automobile while others lay down in front of the vehicle to prevent it from leaving.

Campus security guards moved in and removed the protesters so Rove could leave the scene. American University police described the protest as peaceful. There were no arrests.
