John McCain disrespects American's rights to free speech calling them "low life scum."

In 2015 when John McCain was the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee, he called protesters, exercising their first amendment right of free speech, "low life scum" and threatened to have them arrested if they didn't get out of his hearing.

With this behavior, McCain presaged Donald Trump's bullying and abusive behavior in American government activities

Senator McCain's behavior toward American's right to free speech at a Senate Armed Forces Committee hearing violates the Unitarian Univeralist fifth principle of the right to conscience and the use of the democratic process.

  1. Name calling with contempt and threats is the mark of a bully not a wonderful statesman and diplomat. It is puzzling how John McCain ever selected Sarah Palin to be his vice-presidential running mate. What does this say about his judgment?

  2. Did John McCain have a come to Jesus moment and become nicer after he was diagnosed terminally ill? If he did, the evidence doesn't extend to compassion and forgiveness of Donald Trump.
