Crowds heckle Hillary Clinton in Northern Ireland, call her a “war criminal”

Hillary Clinton was booed as a “war criminal” in Northern Ireland ahead of her inauguration as the first woman Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast.

Footage uploaded to social media shows Clinton, 73 walking through the streets of the British city in ceremonial black and gold robes, a child in traditional dress carrying its hem behind her, being heckled by protesters chanting “war criminal!”, “shame on you!”, and “shame on Queen’s!”

The ceremony had been much delayed, with the university having first appointed her to her largely symbolic role at the beginning of 2020 but her inaugural address unable to take place due to COVID-19 restrictions. Clinton gave a speech declaring that “Northern Ireland has become a symbol of democracy’s power to transcend divisions and deliver peace.”

Clinton went onto say that “with hope comes responsibilities, the responsibility to be a citizen, to be willing to discuss and learn from people unlike yourselves.” Clinton told her supporters that this demographic, amounting to many millions of American citizens in some cases “are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”
