Skip to comments.Pelosi Tells America to Shut Up on Ground Zero Mosque
Posted on 08/19/2010 1:03:40 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Nancy Pelosi had some choice words for the American public yesterday: Shut up.
If youve got an opinion about the N.Y. mosque controversy, better keep it to yourself or you could end up under investigation in the House Star Chamber. Pelosi says she wants to know how opposition to the mosque is being ginned up. She wants to know whos funding this anger. She wants to know what the hell is wrong with the 61 percent of Americans who evidently disagree with her views. (Her disingenuous view being that this is a zoning issue only and all the national controversy is much ado about politics.) Ah, if only she could threaten to take away a prized committee from the average Joe out there, the independent bastards, then things would run so much more smoothly.
Dont get her wrong. Speaker of the House J. Edgar Hoover is perfectly willing to look into the finances and god knows what else of those who are behind the mosque, too. She has gone berserk with prosecutorial tics.
In a statement issued by her staff clarifying her first statement, the speaker wants us to know she was simply calling for an openness of debate. Transparency is the word of the day, according to her staff. Another one might be intimidation.
Pelosis efforts to walk back her provocative call for an investigation were about as clumsy as the presidents I-voted-for-it-before-I-voted-against-it statement about the mosque--one day he was for it, until he met an immediate political backlash, and the next day he was against it.
Pelosi--safe in her politically surreal balloon that is San Francisco--is not nearly so malleable as President Obama. Shed still like to gavel somebody in a courtroom and get to the bottom of this concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. For the sake of fairness, shell gavel everybody. Quick, somebody find the FBIs old cointelpro files. We can toss Joe the Plumbers file in there alongside Martin Luther Kings and John Lennons.
Pelosis comments are appallingly reminiscent of her views during the heated town halls of the healthcare debate. The ones that gave birth to a movement fully formed, angry that its government would force a liberal version of healthcare reform down its throat despite all national polls showing the publics opposition.
This was not legitimate protest, Pelosi and the White House claimed at the time. It was, they asserted, a concerted effort to make this (healthcare) a political issue by some. Sound familiar? It wasnt that the public could possibly have been upset with the healthcare bill; it had to be a case of evil genius Republican operators ginning up false controversy.
One wonders when Nancy Pelosi last had to run a real campaign for reelection. Having managed some myself, I remember simply trying to gin up a good crowd for a fish fry or watermelon festival. Couple hundred people turning out for a member of Congress was excellent. A couple thousand? You take note of that--something way beyond a political machine is at work here.
This, however, is Pelosis way: Youre either with us, un-American, or a Republican-manufactured mob.
Evidently, Pelosis nightmare mob reared its ugly manufactured head again. Unfortunately for her--and more so for vulnerable Democrats on the campaign trail--the mob is, once again, the American people--sometimes known as voters. The ignorant, malleable clods.
As for me, now that I have dared speak about that which shall not be named, I plan to watch my back. Pelosis people could be anywhere. Keep your blinds closed and your voice down.
Hey Nancy, KMA.
What does she think this is, 1975 U S S R? You don’t need to answer...
So is she going to investigate individually 15,000,000 Americans? Is she stupid or insane?
SHUT UP NANCY!!!! You work for us!
How many people can show up there on 9/11?
They’ll hear us.
And if they build that atrocity, I guarantee it won’t stand for long.
This woman needs to be in a padded cell.
“Transparency is the word of the day”
You’ll know what’s in the bill after its passed.
This is getting funnier by the hour. Pelosi is doing a tremendous job of getting the conservative base stirred up. Continue to talk Nancy.
Love to see the Left being sent into a tailspin.
“Is she stupid or insane?”
I don’t think one precludes the other; I’ll say BOTH.
She better start with the idiot in the White House, because his stupid statements really got this thing rolling.
Hey Nan, come on down here and make me - and bring Hussein with you!
“This woman needs to be in a padded cell.”
Maybe after an extended period of detox there, she will only be stupid.
Pelosi and Obama seem to be suffering from the same dimentia, and it’s getting harder and harder for the MSM to put a spin on it.
concerted effort to make this a political issue by some.
What a gaping rectum this woman is!!
Is she stupid or insane?
