We’ve all seen how many people get arrested at your typical left wing protest, especially during the height of the BDS saturated Bush years. However, on 9/12, when nearly two million conservative leaning Americans gathered in Washington D.C. to protest President Obama, there wasn’t a single arrest. Not one.
So, what does Speaker of the House Pelosi conclude from the civility and human decency displayed at “right wing” protests? At a press conference today, she broke down in tears and warned all of us of the inevitable right wing violence that is just around the corner. Through tears, she recalled the 1970′s protests in San Fransisco that lead to the murder of several state senators, comparing it to the angry voices of today’s anti-Obama “teabaggers”. Can I just say that Nancy Pelosi is an irrational moron. She does, however, have the Alinsky tactic of smearing your opponent and accusing them of being dangerous down pat. I guess she forgot about the property damage, intimidation, and threats that her liberal friends subjected Californians to after the vote on Proposition 8. Just like we’re seeing at the Tea Parties all over the country, right? No?
While many of the far left nutjobs will eat this up and spread it far and wide, I find it hard to believe that the average American is going to buy into the belief that their neighbors and friends are really dangerous terrorists who are going to plunge the United States into chaos. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, if Homeland Security isn’t stepping up their internet surveillance and data mining operations with every idiotic statement like this.
I think I’ve figured out what “civil debate” really means when the Democrats suggest we return to it. It means, shut up unless you agree with the President, and if you criticize any of his policies you’re either a rabid racist, or a home grown terrorist. So much for the First Amendment.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”
I see. So anyone who disagrees with her must stop being so enthusiastic about their beliefs and join the rest of the sheeple. Keep talking Pelosi. You’ll be the minority leader after 2010.
