Huffington Post: Karl Rove Heckled Throughout Speech In Massachusetts, Called ‘Murderer,’ ‘Terrorist’

-By Nick Wing

April 10, 2013- GOP strategist Karl Rove ventured into hostile territory on Tuesday night, delivering a speech repeatedly interrupted by boisterous protesters at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

According to CBS 3, the demonstrations raged both inside the auditorium and out, and Rove had barely begun speaking before people began standing up and shouting Rove down with accusations that his guidance of former President George W. Bush on the Iraq War had led to countless American and Iraqi casualties.

Calls of "murderer" and "terrorist" rained down on Rove, while others held signs that read "war criminal." Rove faced a similar confrontation by opponents in 2010, when demonstrators actually forced Rove to abandon a book signing in California.
