Pelosi Tells America to Shut Up on Ground Zero Mosque
US News and World Report ^ | August 19, 2010 | Chris Battle

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 you’ve 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 who’s 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.

Don’t 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.

Pelosi’s efforts to walk back her provocative call for an investigation were about as clumsy as the president’s 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. She’d 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, she’ll gavel everybody. Quick, somebody find the FBI’s old cointelpro files. We can toss Joe the Plumber’s file in there alongside Martin Luther King’s and John Lennon’s.

Pelosi’s 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 public’s 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 wasn’t 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 Pelosi’s way: You’re either with us, un-American, or a Republican-manufactured mob.

Evidently, Pelosi’s 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. Pelosi’s people could be anywhere. Keep your blinds closed and your voice down.

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 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.

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.

Thank you so much for this clear detail of the 9/11 attack. I’ve been trying to explain how the site of the mosque isn’t just two blocks from ground zero, it IS ground zero!

After November, she'll be just another Democratic congresswoman with zero power and influence.

Wonder why this radical leftist is so absolutely fixated on protecting this meeting house of the Cult of Death?
Could it have something to do with the fact that both she and the Cult of Death hate this country and its Christian/Jewish foundation? Is it that both want to destroy this country?

If they destroyed the Empire State Building instead of the WTC the Muslims would be building their Ground Zero Victory Mosque at that location.

They want to celebrate 9/11.

Unless somebody brings forward the evidence of her perjury when she certified Obama as Constitutionally eligible.

Then she won’t be JUST a democratic congresswoman with zero power and influence - she’ll be a democratic congresswoman with zero poer and influence who is also SITTING IN JAIL.

Pelosi has evidenced the fact that she has absolutely no respect for the U.S. Constitution. As such, she has violated her oath of office and should be tossed out of Congress for failing to uphold our laws. She is an abomination with an arrogant “entitlement” demeanor who is not suitable to be a dog catcher. That would be an insult to the canine community!
