Pelosi is a hypocrite
In 2006 Pelosi was a champion of disruptors. In a San Francisco townhall meeting Pelosi rather smugly announced, “I am a fan of disruptors, people who make change.” But last week she condemns protesters as Un-American. Saying that “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” What changed? The focus of the protesters.
When I wrote Those Un-American Idiots, I referred to the anti-war protesters and asked, “Why weren’t they [Pelosi and Hoyer] complaining about the “vocal minority” then?” I was confident that they were firmly supporting them but I had no documentation. Well now I do.
Watch how friendly and jovial she is with the protesters even when they begin to disrupt her meeting. How could she get upset? These people hated Bush, her sworn enemy. Flash forward to today. Now when she speaks about protesters her face is strained, she points with a finger trembling in anger. Nancy Pelosi called the townhall health care protesters “astroturf,” however, since then there have been numerous reports of SEIU and Organizing for America involvement in these townhall meetings. Why is it astroturfing to encourage people to voice their own opinions to their own elected officials, yet it’s not when actually bussing in people who support the President’s plan?
The video below is a nice contrast the audio is Pelosi, Gibb, and other Democrats reacting to opposition while visually showing how extreme these people acted while protesting Bush. WARNING: HARSH LANGUAGE AND VIOLENT IMAGES.
