Pelosi Tries Shedding Crocodile Tears
An uncharacteristically emotional Nancy Pelosi [Emotional...feh! Acting! - Drake] is warning Republicans — and other groups getting whipped up [ I wonder if she means like, "Get in their face"-tactics, like the ones advocated by her Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, Junior? - Drake ] over the health care debate — not to incite unstable supporters who might repeat acts of violence that struck San Francisco in the 1970s.
A top Pelosi aide later confirmed reporters' suggestions that her statement was a reference to the City Hall murder of gay rights activist Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone in November 1978 — an earth-shattering experience for Bay Area Democrats like the speaker.
Pelosi stumbled when asked about Rep. Joe Wilson's "You lie!" outburst and its impact on civility in the House, momentarily overcome by emotion.
"I think we all have to take action and responsibility for our words — we are a free country and this balance between freedom and safety is one that we, um, have to carefully balance," said Pelosi, who made no direct mention of Republicans.
A House leadership aide later told me that Democrats have become increasingly concerned by the ratcheting up of rhetoric on both sides — and particularly alarmed by the recent hanging in effigy of Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-Md.) by a tea party activist on the Eastern Shore.
"I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco, this king of rhetoric. ... It created a climate in which violence took place. ... I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not as balanced as the person making the statements may assume."
Pelosi, according to her spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, was referring to Supervisor Dan White's murder of Milk and Moscone, the basis for last year's film "Milk."
She added: "You have to take responsibility for any incitement that [the speaker's words] may cause."
The speaker, who served as California state party chairwoman before being elected to the House, was a gay rights advocate who attended Milk's funeral.
Than Franthithco...was violent? Is violent? Loving, peace, flowers-growing-out-of-everyone's butt Than Franthithco? (Apologies to Mr. Leffingwell for "borrowing" his phrase). Well, I guess Nanny didn't make much effort to curb the crime enthusiasm in her state and district once she arrived on the D.C. scene. Those cocktail parties are far more tempting that working hard on crime reduction legislation.
Besides, crime is only a symptom of a failed society, right? That's what Liberals have been saying for years. So if crime is a symptom of a failed society, then we can only conclude that Than Franthithco - a Liberal city for decades - run by Liberals - has failed its citizens. Hmmmmmmmm...doesn't sound so peaceful and loving, does it? And it certainly speaks volumes for the lack of success in Liberal policy.
Awwwwww...poor Madame Botox, she wants those who disagree with her Marxist ideology to take action and responsibility for our words. Yeah...Nanny...yeah. Like The Left took responsibility for their actions and words during the W. Bush Admin? Like when the Left feigned that they support the Troops (they don't, they just say they do) only they didn't support the War - especially in Iraq. (So why are we still there?) Like The Left took when they tacitly endorsed a faux-documentary about the assassination of George W. Bush when they didn't condemn it? Like when The Left concocted the wild lies that "Bush Lied, People Died?"
May I mind Madame Botox that for the last two years of the Clinton Admin all Libs like her and John Kerry, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Albert "Global Warming Alarmist" Gore, Junior; Harry Reid and a litany of other Liberals are all on record, drum-beating that Iraq and Saddam Hussein were developing WMDs and seeking nuclear weaponry.
There's one other thing Nanny didn't mention. I'm sure she left this out because it doesn't reflect well on her and her fellow Fascists:
Harvey Milk was a Conservative Republican.
He was killed by Dan White, a DEMOCRAT.
George Moscone was also a Democrat.
So we have Nanny's Culture of Death and Violence emanating from a Democrat, Dan White, who killed a Republican and a Democrat.
Nanny didn't mention these things. Huh...I wonder why?
Yep. The Dems are full of love and tolerance. Good Olde Fashioned Democrat Family Values. Yes?
You know what happened? The republican run state threw it out all three times. So what happened to the people having a voice?
The bottom line is they lied about respecting what the people had to say and about the way the voting process is "supposed" to work. If you can find a good reason for this that is not full of shit I will be surprised. After all you say about how the left being so imperfect what say you about the right disregarding the voters voice.
Peloshit is a pathetic spectacle. Spot On, Tym!
You just keep on steam-rolling over piles of shit, one after the other.
Let's see now, you made a comment on a post from way-back saying I was forgetting it was Reagan's fault - and you blamed him - for airline deregulation.
I replied with a post dedicated to you Wade:
Maybe you read it. In that post I proved to you that it was actually your beloved Socialist Jimmy Carter who began airline dereg. Not a peep was heard from you on that. You disappeared. Not a response from you...nuthin!
Now you show up again, full of BS and blind obedience to your failed Liberal illogic.
Facts don't matter to you, do they Wade?
Thanks for the laughs. You're in the sad minority here in the comments section and, the world, in general.
