George Clooney has been arrested during a protest of the Sudanese government’s role in that nation’s humanitarian crisis.

Actor George Clooney was detained Friday morning during a protest in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

On Wednesday, Clooney testified before Congress about “a campaign of murder” under way in Sudan, where villagers run for the hills to hide from bombings on a daily basis.

“What you see is a constant drip of fear,” Clooney said, a day after returning from a trip in which he and a small team of fellow activists managed to enter one of the most devastated areas, the Nuba Mountains in South Kordofan.

“Clooney’s father, journalist Nick Clooney, 78, was with him and was also arrested, as were Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous, comedian and activist Dick Gregory, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Rep. John Olver (D-Mass.), Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) and former Rep. Tom Andrews (D-Mass.). The group was restrained with plastic handcuffs and taken away by police. ”

LOL the Government is arresting the Government too!


Rush Limbaugh spin:

“Now the actor George Clooney, did you notice how old and fat he looks, has been arrested his persecuting the good people at the Sudanese Foreign Embassy. And these are good people, they are helping freedom fighter Joseph Kony fight back against Obamacare in Uganda. Why does Obama want to bring healthcare to another country when its disastrous effects can still be felt here. Remember Hurricane Katrina? Did Obamacare help then? No. The bottom line is Obama and all the scum like this has-been Clooney, who does nothing but have sex on screen, should all be arrested or murdered… not that I AM IMPLYING THAT YOU SHOULD KILL THEM!!! and we’ll be right back after two minutes of dead air.”
