Welcome to Rio: Brazilians celebrate Obama's arival with rubber bullets and Molotov cocktails

A molotov cocktail was launched in front of the US consulate in Rio de Janeiro late Friday in protest of the arrival of President Barack Obama, the O Globo newspaper in Rio reported. Military police reacted by firing rubber bullets into the gathering of 200 at around 18:30 local time. A CBN news reporter suffered a minor injury from the shots and traffic was blocked.

“They came after us with clubs and tear gas and attacked,” according to protestor Thiago Hastenheiter. “They chased us through the streets and started firing rounds of rubber bullets.”

Lets be accurate here. When foreign protestors make personal attacks on any American president, they are protesting America, and not the individual. These protests are not akin to the GOP protesting Obama. So lets be clear on that.
