Pelosi censors poster of troops

Bruce Fein

Friday, August 22, 2008

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-S.F., has done something worse than commit a crime against the First Amendment. The speaker's censorship of nonobtrusive posters featuring men and women who gave that last full measure of devotion in service to their country is a blunder that could alienate 23 million veterans and their families from the Democratic Party. If she is endowed with a crumb of constitutional or political sense, she will reverse course.

The tale of Pelosi's folly begins with Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C. He wished to pay tribute to the service members of Camp Lejeune who had been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. Accordingly, Walter placed a poster flat against the wall in the corridor outside his office showing their names and pictures.

Why the outrage? The Democrat party has treated the military like less than dirt for years. Ms. 9% is only acting in character.

Many of the great old Universal (and other) horror flicks had great scenes where the villagers would rise up, torches and pitchforks in hand, and burn down the castle where evil dwells. I predict soon life will be imitating art.

“Support the GOP candidate running against Pelosi.”

Don’t think there is one. Cindy Sheehan is the only alternative. Much as it pains me to say it, Pelosi actually makes Sheehan look good — but only by comparison.

We should take the poster and plaster it every where we can.

How can we get a copy of the poster? Does anyone have posters/pictures we can flood her Email with? She is as bad as the traitor kerry.

Treasonous Liberals fear exposure more than anything. They exist and thrive on lies and deception. IMO, they’re reprehensible human waste.

Seriously, I don’t think our overlords understand the seething anger among the electorate. While the Gwatney shooting here in Arkansas was the work of a man completely off his nut, it should at least serve as a little “goose” for the elitists who are doing their damndest to run this country into the ground. I’m not saying I advocate violence, however, when the ruling class continues to anger the citizens, somethings gotta give....

The only time Democrats honor troops is when they can get a good photo op out of it, or score political points by parading their dead bodies around.

I’ve got no use at all for Walter Jones, and I question his motives in putting up the poster in the first place.

But 9% Nancy still stepped in it.

"Irrespective of free speech, the prospect of losing the veterans' vote in November should concentrate Pelosi's mind on

I hate to be the fly in the soda glass here but as for "losing the veteran's vote", Pelosi doesn't have a veteran's vote to lose. Her communist-bitch seat is insanely safe. Most veterans will never hear about this and even if they do I doubt it will change any minds in such a way as to effect votes. The most it will garner is some nasty emails.

Still I suppose the combinations of overt anti-Americanism by the liberals in Washington might have some effect. A little BS here, a little BS there and eventually enough BS to make a few people realize the liberals stink.

Once again SanFranNan sends a janitor to do her dirty work. People should really start pressing their representatives for a pledge to support SOMEONE ELSE as SoH. You might not be able to turn your district from blue to red but MAYBE you can get that biatch out of power.

Our research into the land ownership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband revealed that the Speaker and her husband bought two pieces of property from Joseph E.

Current records from the District of Columbia show that one of the properties is now back in Seagram's name but the address Seagram's is using is the address of the Paul and Nancy Pelosi Charitable Foundation.webofdeception.com

SanFranNan is working like the approval poll is a golf score...the lowest number wins. Assuming that’s her view, she’s headed for spectacular success, IMO.

This is patently ridiculous. I hope it is rightly challenged. Madam Despot needs a time out.

If the Repubs in Congress had any cojones, when Congress is called back into session and Pelousi appears, they would all rise, give the salute and cry out:”Seig Heil!”

What a pathetic (rhymes with witch. I don’t judge, but I hope that there is a special place near Satan for this POS. Maybe in front of an eternal firing squad.

Jones has voted with Pelosi against some Iraq War legislation. Yet she wants to alienate Jone on this innocuous matter?

Apparently her few remaining brain cells have lost connection with each other.

This would be perfect for a commercial from an outside group to turn opinion against the Democratic Congress. I’d like to see any Democrat try to explain this away as some sort of procedural violation. Even if it was, a) who would actually put some rule above the sacrifices of our troops, and b) why would such a rule exist in the first place? Since it sounds like it was no violation, it’s even worse. It’s a simple thing, but disgusting nonetheless, and a perfect window into the mind of the Democrats and their Glorious Leader.

Mixed feelings here. I suspect this Congressman has his heart in the right place, but so many of these “memorials” are outright lies. The intent is not to honor the fallen but to stir emotion against a war the sponsor opposes.

And to that end, they’ll exaggerate the body count with not combat deaths. Deaths that under any other circumstance they would NOT aknowledge, even though they result from the military being a dangerous ocupation even in peacetime.

All the crosses, boots, coffin and tombstone displays are sponsored by grave robbing ghouls out to steal the goodwill and sympathy offered by a grateful public to the fallen.

It was never meant for those ghouls and it’s not theirs to convert for their cause, especially when their cause is to undermine the country and way of life those troops died to preserve.
