WASHINGTON -- White House advisor Karl Rove was the target of a protest on the American University campus Tuesday night, News4 reported.

Rove was on the campus talking to the school's Young Republicans club for about an hour. Afterward, when Rove got outside, more than a dozen students began throwing things at his car, an American University spokesperson said.

The students then got on the ground and lay down in front of his car as a protest.

The students said security officials picked them up and carried them away so Rove could leave.

Police said they have dealt with a lot of protests on campus and this one was handled peacefully. No one was arrested.

American University is reviewing the incident to determine if any students should faces charges under the school's code of conduct. The university said the students were given a designated area to protest and violated that agreement.

I'm surprised that Rove didn't pull a "Kent State" & have them shot!

This is fascinating. The same day a story comparing the Bush administration to the Ku Klux Klann, there is a story about English schools not teaching the Holocaust because it offends Muslims.

I have one question: are you for, or against, the Holocaust? Why is it acceptable to denounce Karl Rove but not Muslims? If Karl Rove were Muslim, would it be politically incorrect to associate him with the KKK? I would like to know.
