McCain’s Grandson Caught Playing “God Save the Queen”
Dear Patriots,

McCain’s Grandson Caught Playing “God Save the Queen”

From ABS News Wire, March 15, 2008

A shocking video has been uncovered of John McCain’s grandson mocking the Royal Crown of England.
On a visit to London during the Queen’s seventy-five birthday in the year 2001, Reginald Nelson, no relation to Sir Admiral Nelson, was caught playing the Sex Pistol irreverent song “God Save the Queen” and singing at the top of his lungs. Some German friends video taped the event as the parade went by their apartment near London’s Soho neighborhood.

Mr. Nelson also spouted statements about how the white racist government of England had once “subjugated twenty-five percent of the worlds population under the iron will of the British crown.” Mr. Nelson was immediately castigated by Sir Albert Victor of the Conservative Sun Newspaper who decried the comments, “How dare an American repudiate our crown in a time of the celebration of the Queens birthday. This young man will pay for what he did, as will his grandfather, Mr. McCain.” Many in England see this as an attack on the crown and an attack on England itself, and it has left a rift in the NATO Alliance.

Some say Mr. Nelson mooned a passing parade and shouted “free Gibraltar,” “the Cornish Game Hen’s won’t roost here anymore,” and “Germany will beat England in the next World Cup.” British Bobbies had to protect Nelson from soccer hooligans as he was escorted to Heathrow Airport and expelled from England.

Reginald, who was twenty at the time, had known Republican and Presidential Nominee John McCain, for twenty years. However, McCain refused to meet his grandson Reginald at Newark airport for his transfer flight to San Francisco. It is assumed that long time companion and roommate of Reggie, as his friends call him, picked him up at the San Francisco airport.

This whole affair reflects badly on McCain who has yet to denounce his grandson’s actions. If nothing else, it will lose votes of Anglophiles and Beatles fans. That loss will be partially offset by Irish American votes and fans of old-school punk rock.

God save America and Damn the U.S. Media!

Yours,

4. McCain just put out a statement
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 09:16 PM by ruggerson
"This person in question is not my grandson, but a crazy uncle. While I have heard him speak on occasion, I was never present when he disparaged the Crown. With regret, I have just accepted his resignation from our family."

6. McCain can't deny that this looks bad
Grandson, crazy uncle, what's the difference. It shows the hatred his family has for the English crown and therefore, the hatred he has for all of humanity.

McCain should resign!!

"Fock the English. Lift a glass to Reggie. And cousin Johnny, is either O'Bama or McCain faithful to the Church? Our news is slow. Slainte on Paddy's Day."

9. So, McCain has a 26-year-old grandson, eh?
He's only known his grandfather for 20 years?

He's as bad as Reagan regarding grandchildren.

10. It's obvious that McCain is hiding something here
if he doesn't even admit to knowing his own grandson.
