The Wicked Witch of the West Coast, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has drawn a line in the sand. And by doing so, she labels any American who opposes larger, more invasive government a “domestic terrorist”.
Pelosi invokes the specter of right wing violence and impending doom to push the Socialist Agenda of the left’s anointed king, President Obama. Here is it, with RB6’s comments as well:
From Fox News-
WASHINGTON -- Republicans are rejecting comparisons made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who came near to tears Thursday when she compared anti-government rhetoric over President Obama's health care proposals to the debate over gay rights in 1970s San Francisco.
"I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco," Pelosi told reporters, her voice catching in her throat at her weekly press briefing.
Now she’s going to be a human? I personally can’t see this callous Trotskyite career politician crying over anything but a lost election
Without making an eponymous comparison, Pelosi was referring to the 1978 murders of Mayor George Moscone and city Supervisor Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist immortalized in a recent movie starring Sean Penn. Former San Francisco Supervisor Dan White was convicted in the case. He committed suicide in 1985.
At the time, gay rights activists and others said the assassinations were the result of the loud and sometimes violent debate over gay rights. Pelosi was chairwoman of the Democratic Party for northern California and friendly with Milk and Moscone.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. If the PMRC can link Judas Priest to suicide, the DNC can link anti-gay violence to Free Speech and dissent.
Pelosi said Thursday that while she values free speech, a careful line must be tread between the First Amendment Right and regard for public safety.
Pelosi values Free Speech like Hitler valued the Jews.
"Our country is great because people can say what they think and they believe," she added. "But I also think that they have to take responsibility for any incitement that they may cause."
Right? Why make people take personal responsibility for their own actions? In our new worker bee society, no one does anything of their own free will. If you do something right, it is because you were inspired by President Obama, and if you do something bad, it was because Dick Cheney or Joe Wilson told you too.
Pelosi's response came to a question about whether she is concerned that the political debate and anti-government rhetoric could mimic the era of 1993-1994, when then-President Bill Clinton offered a health care option and as the reporter noted, "Around that time, we also saw acts of domestic violence, domestic terrorism."
If Pelosi thinks that the domestic violence in the Clintonista times was brought about by a push for federalized health care, she should watch the tape of the Branch Davidian compound being burned by the FBI, or read about FBI sniper Lon Horuchi shooting Randy Weavers wife, while she held their infant son, at Ruby Ridge.
"I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made," Pelosi said. Some of the people hearing the message "are not as balanced as the person making the statement might assume."
So the average American is too mentally unbalanced to understand the difference between dissent and a call for bloody revolution? This is the arrogance of government. In our morally sodden nanny-state, We The People must be taken care of by Uncle Sugar, right? I am sorry, but have things gotten so bad that these ass-ocrats and republi-douches have forgotten who elected them, and who pays their salaries. They are living in The People’s House on our dime. How is it we are not marching on Washington DC with torches and pitchforks?
Pelosi did not offer examples of rhetoric today that could lead to violence but the House rebuked South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson for shouting "You lie!" at Obama last week. The August congressional recess was also dominated by town hall meetings in which voters vigorously stated their opposition to the president's proposals for health care reforms.
I wish Joe Wilson had pulled a Preston Brooks and cracked someone’s head, instead of hooting a 3rd grade response. We are fighting tyranny here, dammit, not rooting for a volleyball team.
The town hall meetings were followed with a rally in Washington, D.C., last weekend that brought tens of thousands of protesters.
House Minority Leader John Boehner said Thursday little if any of the rhetoric feeding the health care debate has contained an undercurrent of violence.
"Listen, I was at a tea party in Westchester, Ohio on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend with 18,000 people. I saw no signs or any indication of any kind of violence," he said.
"Americans are saying 'stop.' They're scared to death that the country that they grew up in is not going to be the country that their kids and grandkids get to grow up in," Boehner added. "And so as a result, you're seeing average Americans who've never been involved in the political process taking a more active role in our society and in this debate. And so, you know, I believe it ought to be civilized, but -- but Americans are speaking up and they ought to speak up."
Boehner also chided President Carter, who this week became the highest -profile politician to say the opposition is built on racism because Obama is black.
Jimmy Carter is truly America’s shame. How bad was the Nixon/Ford administration that we felt the need to punish ourselves with 4 years of him?
"I reject this resoundingly," Boehner said. "The outrage that we see in America has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with the policies that (Obama) is promoting."
Thomas Jefferson is rolling in his grave at what our country has become. Shame on us for letting it get this far. Shame on our elected officials for forgetting their place, and shame on the people for not reminding them.
