"Get Out James Comey, You’re Not Our Homie": Comey Mercilessly Heckled At Howard University Speech

Former FBI Director James Comey was mercilessly heckled this afternoon as he attempted to deliver a speech at the Howard University convocation ceremony.  As the Washington Post confirms, a group of 20 Howard students led the heckling session that persisted throughout Comey's speech and included the following clever chants:

"Get out James Comey, you’re not our homie."

"No justice, no peace."

At another point, protesters launched into song with the following lovely rendition of "We Shall Not Be Moved."

 

Comey and University officials attempted to quiet the crowds with condescending and patronizing overtures, but, to our great 'shock', they didn't work.

At another point, the rest of the crowd of more than 1,000 in attendance began cheering “let him speak!’’ but the protesters were not deterred or quieted.?

 

University officials urged the protesters to “be better than this,’’ but were met by chants of “White supremacy is not a debate.’’

 

Comey, wearing black academic robes sought to get the attention of the crowd, to no avail.

 

“I’m only going to speak for 12 minutes,’’ he said.

 

"I love the enthusiasm of the young folks, I just wish they would understand what a conversation is,’’ said Comey, trying to speak above the interruptions of the protesters.

As NBC notes, Howard University announced back in August that Comey would lead a series of lectures during the 2017-2018 school year which angered many groups on campus, including "HU Resist" which apparently orchestrated today's entertainment.

Howard University officials first announced in August that Comey would serve as the school's Gwendolyn S. Colbert I. King Endowed Chair in public policy for the 2017-2018 academic year. The former FBI director's responsibility will include leading a series of five lectures and formally welcoming the new freshmen class on Friday.

 

However, a number of students objected to the choice.

 

In a petition circulated by, "HU Resist", a student run organization that challenges university policies, activists argued that Comey’s actions as as the head of the FBI have ranged from the “criminalization” and attempted dismantling of Black Lives Matter” to the promotion of xenophobic and “characterizations” of “Muslim people.”

We certainly hope these kids enjoy the lifetime of FBI surveillance they just earned as a result of their "extremely careless" behavior...see what we did there?

I had to deal with three HU graduates in the military - the most entitled, worthless, racist pieces of shit I've ever seen. They thought they should make rank because they were breathing - regardless of how frighteningly incompetent they were - and command usually gave it to them.

On the flip side, I served with some amazingly competent soldiers who also happened to be black (non-HU graduates) - solid men I'd have trusted with my life - so it's not a race thing. HU breeds human waste.

These college kids are really confused. Comey is rumored to be into dressing males up like howdy doody and then sodomizing them. He is guilty of covering for criminal organizations, and a number of other crimes, but they think he is against a Soros group? Gay men are usually not racist, they like all men.

The longer Trump refuses to demand that his Pansy AG indict Hillary, Traitor Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Rhodes, Mills, Huma, Lynch, Power and around 30 other Barry Obongo traitors... or fire his Milquetoast ass...The more it smells like he is a puppet of the MIC and Deep State.  Get Seculow in there, he will kick ASS.

I think Trump is demented by old age and incredibly weak. But by not arresthing Hellary or indicting her he can spend 4 years bitching about how Liberals think they are above the law.Hellary makes a great "straw man" so he can get re-elected wihtout having done a goddam thing to drain the swamp much less Make America Great AGain
