I want to thank Representative Nancy Pelosi for standing up and reminding Americans that the ethical core and the psychological heart of a progressive is to be a preening narcissist, camouflaged as a social redeemer.
Thank you Rep. Nancy Pelosi for standing in front of the cameras and telling Americans and the world that Republicans, who say they want to cut government spending, are liars. Because it drives home the reality that you have burdened generations of Americans with an unaffordable health bill. You spoke forcefully to the cameras warning America that the Right wants to destroy food safety, clean air, clean water, the Department of Education! that the Right is using the budget deficit as an excuse to destroy government and the rights of Americans.
Thank you Rep. Nancy Pelosi for warning us. But would you please tell the rest of us how to increase our personal wealth by 60% in this time of lost jobs, lost homes, lost pensions and dwindling savings, as you have. Please tell us how much your private jet (with well stocked liquor locker), provided at your insistence while you were speaker and driving that health care bill down our throats, cost the little people.
When Rep. Nancy Pelosi stood and spoke to the cameras calling my party liars for trying to save the U.S. economy I thought of David Horowitzs great essay: Hillary Clinton and "The Third Way" How America's First Lady of the Left Has Bamboozled Liberals and Conservatives Alike.
I dedicate this excerpt to Rep. Nancy Pelosi and thank her for giving me the opportunity to share it.
".......As a student of the left, Jamie Glazov, has observed in an article about the middle-class defenders of recently captured Seventies terrorist Kathy Soliah: "if you can successfully camouflage your own pathology and hatred with a concern for the 'poor' and the 'downtrodden,' then there will always be a 'progressive' milieu to support and defend you." -- Huey Newton, George Jackson, Bernadine Dohrn, Sylvia Baraldini, Rubin Carter, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Rigoberta Menchu and innumerable others have all discovered this principle in the course of their criminal careers.
There is a superficial sense, of course, in which we were civil rights and peace activistsand that is certainly the way I would have described myself at the time, particularly if I were speaking to a non-left audience. It is certainly the way Mrs. Clinton and my former comrades in the left refer to themselves and their pasts in similar contexts today.
But they are lying. (And when they defend racial preferences nowa principle they denounced as "racist" theneven they must know it).
The first truth about leftist missionaries, about believing progressives, is that they are liars. But they are not liars in the ordinary way, which is to say by choice. They are liars by necessityoften without even realizing that they are. Because they also lie to themselves. It is the political lie that gives their cause its life.
Why, for example, if you were one of them, would you tell the truth? If you were serious about your role in humanity's vanguard, if you had the knowledge (which others did not), that you were certain would lead them to a better world, why would you tell them a truth that they could not "understand" and that would hold them back?
If others could understand your truth, you would not think of yourself as a "vanguard." You would no longer inhabit the morally charmed world of an elite, whose members alone can see the light and whose mission is to lead the unenlightened towards it. If everybody could see the promised horizon and knew the path to reach it, the future would already have happened and there would be no need for the vanguard of the saints.
That is both the ethical core and psychological heart of what it means to be a part of the left. That is where the gratification comes from. To see yourself as a social redeemer. To feel anointed. In other words: To be progressive is itself the most satisfying narcissism.
That is why it is of little concern to them that their socialist schemes have run aground, burying millions of human beings in their wake. That is why they don't care that their panaceas have caused more human suffering than all the injustices they have ever challenged. That is why they never learn from their "mistakes." That is why the continuance of Them is more important than any truth.
If you were active in the so-called "peace" movement or in the radical wing of the civil rights causes, why would you tell the truth? Why would you tell people that no, you weren't really a "peace activist," except in the sense that you were against America's war. Why would you draw attention to the fact that while you called yourselves "peace activists," you didn't oppose the Communists' war, and were gratified when America's enemies won?............." David Horowitz - June 2000
It's THEIR money and they want it.
Horowitz knows these people inside and out.
Horowitz: "It is the political lie that gives their cause its life. ..........If others could understand your truth, you would not think of yourself as a "vanguard." You would no longer inhabit the morally charmed world of an elite, whose members alone can see the light and whose mission is to lead the unenlightened towards it. If everybody could see the promised horizon and knew the path to reach it, the future would already have happened and there would be no need for the vanguard of the saints."
She always has those frenetic, buggy eyes.
I wonder if that's a Botox thing?
Prolly an old fashioned facelift. Pretty good bet she started the cosmetic surgery routine at least 25 years ago.
Everything about her is a lie.
She’s a 71 year old woman determined to look half her age.
Thank you for the link.
She seems to have a speech impediment — from surgery, poor dentures or natural?
The LIBERAL is natural enough.
Pelosi’s upper lip and surrounding tissue are frozen in the video. That surely looks like Botox. She sounds inebriated.
Yes — she knows she can still pull off a good smile but that talking for more than sound bites is a dead give-away something weird is going on with her face and jaw.
Her mind and soul was the story but when the story changes, discuss that story ~~~~~
Fetid piece of ****. Yeah, I would have liked to seen my investments grow 60% ! The last three years, I have stagnated when you factor in stagflation that has returned !
