“Before their arrest, the assembled group of congressmen, religious leaders and cultural icons spoke about the humanitarian crisis faced by hundreds of thousands of Sudanese who have been prevented from receiving international aid by president Bashir,” the Washington Post writes.

Clooney and the group of protesters stepped onto embassy grounds after giving short speeches, at which point they were instructed that they must leave or be arrested. On the third warning, officers told the group they were under arrest, and the protestors lined up to get handcuffed and were removed to a waiting van,” the Post added.

    Wow! George the Gnome finally has some liberal street cred! Pity it is not 1969. It is 2012 out there George. You are several decades too late. I feel bad for the Sudanese, but what about the people who are suffering all across this country? What about the people and towns who lost their families in the recent mid-west tornados and storms?!?

    sack your lousy b*itch PR team, George.
    Some of C.U.Next.Tuesdays posting above!! <– acronym
    Not all of them….
    These b*itches have been given the right to write whatever they like & when someone genuinely posts, they bully him out. Like stepping on their toes. Or they'll be out of work.
    They're discrediting you again.

    AMEN! You said it all – so right. When are these “Hollywood elite” going to start caring about America & our people – which, by the way, have made them very rich and famous. So sick of the “Hollywood phonies” (n ot all are – but we all know which ones are the phonies).
