Hillary jeered by NYC heroes

Senator Hillary Clinton's inner circle is furious at MIRAMAX king Harvey Weinstein after the former first lady suffered through a public relations nightmare during Saturday's AMERICA: A TRIBUTE TO HEROES concert in New York City.

Hillary Clinton was jeered and booed by thousands gathered at Madison Square Garden as she took to the stage -- unannounced -- to introduce a movie clip. VH1 cameras captured firemen and police heroes wildly booing Clinton, who attempted to raise her voice above the shouting crowd.

"Get off the stage! We don't want you here!" yelled one New York City police officer just feet from the senator. Anti-Clinton slurs spread and intensified throughout the Garden, with many standing near the stage lobbing profanities.

Event-planner and close Clinton friend Harvey Weinstein was visibly shaken as he heard the crowd erupt with boos and jeers, according to an eyewitness. The junior senator from New York ending up giving the shortest presentation of the evening, clocking in at under 20 seconds.

"How could we not know this would be the wrong forum for Hillary?!" shouted one confidante. "These are cops and firemen who listen to right-wing talkradio. They still think she killed Vince Foster, for Christ sake!"

Other New York politicians received warmer welcomes during the 5-hour concert which featured Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and others.

Former President Bill Clinton, who took the stage minutes after his wife, worked over scattered boos with talk of the rescuers' heroism. Following the Clintons, James Taylor soothed the heroes with an acoustic FIRE AND RAIN.

The concert raised millions of dollars for September 11 relief efforts. for updates (c)DRUDGE REPORT 2001

Hillary Clinton, accompanied by former Mayor Ed Koch, keeps smiling despite a sometimes hostile reception along the parade route.
[Photo deleted.]

The St. Patrick's Day Parade yesterday turned into a 45-block Senate campaign rally for Mayor Giuliani, while Hillary Rodham Clinton got pelted with boos.

"Go back to Arkansas," several hecklers yelled at Clinton, who was marching for the first time.

On the mayor's home turf, Clinton heard more jeers than cheers as she trekked up snowy Fifth Avenue amid the smaller-than-usual crowd, but the smile never left her face.

Clinton even was snubbed at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

At the pre-parade Mass, Giuliani and Gov. Pataki worshipped in the front row, but Clinton was seated in the eighth row.

She later was booed by several hundred spectators on the church steps, chant-

ing "Go Home Hillary!" as she passed by -- and the archdiocesan leaders who earlier greeted Giuliani were nowhere in sight.

"How is the cardinal?" Clinton asked an auxiliary bishop from Newark who welcomed her.

Many Democrats skipped the parade because the organizers banned gays, although City Council Speaker Peter Vallone, Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens) and former Mayor Ed Koch accompanied the first lady.

At the kickoff on 43rd Street, Clinton sparked a media frenzy with cameramen pushing and shoving as they jockeyed for position.

Distributing campaign stickers, the first lady's aides cheered and belted out "Hillary, Hillary" whenever protesters started mouthing off at Clinton.

Unlike last week's Inner Circle dinner, the two candidates avoided each other this time, with Clinton marching well behind the mayor.

Giuliani and Clinton were each bombarded with shouts of "Shame, shame!" by members of the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization, which was barred from marching in the parade.

Giuliani mocked Clinton as a carpetbagger before the marching began, posed for pictures with anti-Hillary protesters along the route, and was greeted by cheers of "Senator Giuliani" almost everywhere he stopped to shake hands.

"Kick her ass back to Arkansas!" one parade watcher screamed at Giuliani.

Another supporter surprised the mayor by saying, "Mrs. Clinton wants to meet you."

"She's the out-of-towner," Giuliani responded. "I hope she hasn't gotten lost."

The anti-Giuliani catcalls were few and far between. One man repeatedly shouted "It happened again last night" -- a reference to the police shooting of an unarmed man.

After the parade, the mayor took potshots at Hillary while praising the Irish at the 216th annual Friendly Sons of St. Patrick dinner.

In his 20-minute speech, Giuliani joked that he's part Irish, speculating that Hillary will soon "claim to be part Pakistani" -- in reference to Pakistani Americans who recently raised money for her in hopes of influencing the president's foreign policy.

The mayor, in a green Manhattan College slicker and baseball hat, soaked up the "Rudy, Rudy" cheers, as he darted from curb to curb, working the crowd. "I love him," said Diane Vitiello of Richmond Hill, Queens, after hugging Giuliani.

Clinton's smile never faded as she walked and waved, ignoring such signs as "Something's Rodham in the White House."

"We've had our fill of Hill and Bill," read one carried by former Giuliani Housing Authority Commissioner Myrtle Whitemore, who chanted, "Go home!"-- Penny

First lady soundly booed at St. Patrick's Day parade

NEW YORK (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton marched in her first St. Patrick's Day parade today but was greeted by many along the parade route with a resounding chorus of boos and shouts of ''go back to Arkansas.''

Accompanied by fellow Democrats City Council President Peter Vallone, former Mayor Ed Koch, and Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Joseph Crowley, Clinton ignored her vocal critics and kept smiling and waving.

The largest chorus came at St. Patrick's Cathedral, where parade watchers stood two and three deep on the sidewalk. ''Find your own state,'' some shouted. ''Go back to Arkansas,'' others screamed out. Many preferred to hurl generic boos at the first lady.

And while there were Clinton supporters cheering, they were drowned out by the more vocal opposing crowd.

''Rudy, Rudy,'' one group of young men shouted as she passed by. ''The mayor has done so much for the city,'' said John Durkin, of Sayville, on Long Island. ''He is absolutely awesome.''

Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Clinton's Republican rival for the Senate, and Gov. George Pataki led the parade but not before taking a shot at what he calls Clinton's carpetbagger status, saying he hoped she doesn't get lost.

''I think I've got some good guides to find my way,'' responded Clinton, marching further back in the parade.

The first lady began the day -- a dreary overcast day that included a freezing rain and later light snow -- at a St. Patrick's Cathedral Mass attended by about 5,000 worshippers.

She sat several rows behind Giuliani inside the church but they did not exchange greetings. After the Mass she attended a breakfast hosted by Vallone at the Princeton Club where she told the group she brought greetings from the president, who was meeting with parties involved in the Northern Ireland peace process.

She made a reference to her new status, saying, ''It is just a great pleasure to be here as a New Yorker for St. Patrick's Day.''

Outside, Clinton supporters, wearing stick-on shamrocks that simply said, ''Hillary,'' got ready to line the 45-block parade route.

She was one of the few prominent Democrats to march. Many Democrats boycott the parade because the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization is not permitted to march.

The parade is organized by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, a Catholic fraternal group that excludes ILGO on the grounds that homosexuality is not accepted by the Catholic church.

Sixty-six members of the Irish gay group held a protest before the start of the parade and were arrested on disorderly conduct charges when they tried to march down Fifth Avenue.

The first lady has said repeatedly that she wants to highlight her support for the Irish peace process by taking part in the parade, but she has also said she had hoped the parade would be ''inclusive'' of the gay group.

Her reasoning did little to pacify angry ILGO members.

''Hillary came to New York and did not understand Irish politics. She should not be marching in the main parade,'' said ILGO member Maxine Wolfe, 58, of Brooklyn. ''She's hypocritical for saying she's marching to support the peace process.''

''I understand their concerns about it not being inclusive,'' Clinton said when asked to respond to her Irish gay critics. ''But this is a day also to honor the values and contributions of Irish Americans.... when you're in public life you have to balance competing values.''

City Comptroller Alan Hevesi, city Public Advocate Mark Green, former Mayor David Dinkins and U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer are among the Democrats conspicuously absent amid the bagpipes and marching bands.

But Green attended the morning Mass with Clinton, who accented her outfit with a green scarf. ''I often come to Mass but I don't march because I'm hoping some day it will be an inclusive parade,'' Green said before the service began.

Hevesi, Green and a bevy of other elected Democratic officials did join the first lady on Feb. 27 for an early St. Patrick's Day parade in Queens that permitted gay organizations to march.

In December, Clinton said she would march after she was asked about the parade during a press conference with a group of Irish-American officials. She apparently did not know about the ILGO conflict when she made her initial commitment.

Midtown Rally Follows Escalation of Mideast Conflict
OCTOBER 12TH, 2000
Against the backdrop of a serious escalation of the Mideast conflict,
thousands of people gathered outside the Israeli consulate in Midtown
Thursday afternoon to show their support for Israel.
Several prominent politicians spoke at the planned "Solidarity for
Israel" rally, including Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Governor Pataki, and
Senate candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Rick Lazio.
Mrs. Clinton was booed while she spoke and Lazio was cheered when it
was his turn to address the crowd that stretched for six blocks.
Earlier in the Middle East, Israeli helicopters fired rockets at
locations around the West Bank and Gaza strip, including near
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's residential compound, in retaliation
for the death of two Israeli soldiers who were brutally beaten by a
Palestinian mob early Thursday morning.
On their way back to their base, the two soldiers made a wrong turn in
the West Bank town of Ramallah and sought shelter in a Palestinian
police station. Rumors that the soldiers were being held drew an angry
mob of
1,000 Palestinians. About ten people were able to break past a group of
Palestinian police who were trying to defend the building and the
soldiers were beaten to death.
Video footage shows the body of one soldier dangling upside down from a
second-story window of the building while the crowd cheered and waved
their fists below. The body was then dropped to the ground, where the
mob stomped the corpse and beat it with broken parts from a window
Israel's military quickly retaliated, amassing troops near Ramallah,
sealing off other Palestinian towns so residents could not leave and
sending helicopter gunships to bomb targets in the West Bank and Gaza
Israeli officials said their military strike was a warning signal and
held Yasser Arafat responsible for ending the violence.
Police stations, including the one where the soldiers were killed, were
among the targets. Television broadcast centers were also bombed
because Israeli officials said Palestinian TV was broadcasting
inflammatory images.
Arafat's Gaza City headquarters were evacuated as surrounding buildings
were hit with rockets. Arafat's aides say he was inside the compound at
the time. He later toured the bombed sites and was cheered by a crowd
flashing victory signs.
Two weeks of clashes have left at least 94 people dead, mostly

I'm convinced there was massive vote fraud in NYC to hand the victory over to Hitlery. I just don't believe for a second that she got more votes than Lazio, even though he was a Lousy-o candidate himself.

Good one, Mia. I remember the evil one getting booed on Dec. 31 1999 at the milennial celebration in DC when it was there with its equally evil husband. This was caught on one of the networks and hushed up afterwards. I'm starting to think most people dislike her (intensely).
