That is what I think the video is saying.

Our government has spoken out against repression of protest abroad, saying the oppressors must be brought to account. How much have you heard about prosecuting the cops who have pepper sprayed and beaten our protestors? What those cops are doing is, after all, assault, unless it is justified -- but clearly in most of the Occupy cases it is not. If it were prosecuted it would not continue.

The police are trying (counterproductively, it seems) to quiet dissent through their brutality. This is what Pres Obama and Sec'y Clinton are shown speaking out against in other countries. Why can't they stop it here?

The repression is worse in other countries. That said, the video's point still stands.
