MSNBC was covering John McCain's speech in front of a Latino conference this morning when he was interrupted by two anti-war protesters. (at about the 1:10 mark) MSNBC's Alex Witt, while speaking off the cuff during a live event, mischaracterized the women as "hecklers."

Protester: "Your silence is consent to war crimes!"

McCain has been met with protest before in this campaign and it won't be last time he hears strong opposition from the American people on his war. He likes to talk about the freedoms our troops provide us, but on the Straight Talk Express, free speech is limited to those who agree with him and President Bush. Also note how McCain states that he didn't learn to love the United States until he went to Viet Nam.
