The latest from TheBlaze.com:
College-aged anti-war activists have not come a long way since days of the Vietnam War.
For instance, check out this video posted to YouTube Monday of multiple City University of New York students hounding and heckling former CIA director retired Gen. David Petraeus as he makes his way to his first class.
The audio is jumbled and it’s difficult to make out what they’re saying, but you can hear shouts of “war criminal!” and “fascist!” clear as a bell.
The retired general never once loses his composure and silently marches ahead to his class.
Again, it’s not entirely clear what, exactly, the CUNY students are trying to accomplish. And based on their disjointed and confused shouting, they may not be sure themselves [Content warning: Video contains multiple profanities]:
According to Business Insider, Petraeus was brought on by the school to teach a course at the honors college titled “Are We on the Threshold of the North American Decade?”
He supposedly agreed to the teaching position as part of a broader strategy to rehabilitate his image following his extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell.
