Something the leftist media establishment doesn't want you to know: San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi's ties to socialism.
Writing in the Washington Times, Balint Vazsonyi notes that in a recent New York Times article about the soon-to-be House minority leader, there was not "a single mention of her executive position in the Progressive Caucus, and the latter's ties to the Socialist International."
"Question: If an international organization existed to carry the torch for Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, and if a person running for minority leader had past or present ties to such an organization, what are the chances the New York Times would find it irrelevant to the matter at hand?" asks Vazsonyi.
"None. Zero. Nada.
"Double standards: Do you remember the Austrian nationalist Joerg Haider? He had no such affiliation. Yet the mere possibility that he might harbor sympathies for National Socialist ideas sufficed to make him, and the country in which he holds office, an international pariah.
"The Socialist International carries the torch for Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, V.I. Lenin, Leon Trotsky, and Josef Stalin. Pay no attention to the desperate attempts by socialists to distance themselves from Stalin. For our purposes, it suffices to observe that every single tenet of the Socialist International is the exact opposite of the principles upon which America was founded, and which define the U.S. Constitution.
"For our purposes, it suffices also to observe that members of the U.S. Congress are required to furnish an oath whereby they will preserve, protect, and defend said Constitution.
"DSA/USA, the 'Democratic Socialists of America' are the U.S. arm of the Socialist International. They share the symbol of the fist holding the rose, and they share the tasks to be accomplished in our case, an altogether different America.
"Some time ago the date is missing from the descriptions 58 members of the U.S. House of Representatives formed a subdivision of the Democratic Socialists of America and called it the Progressive Caucus. Their statement of purpose, as well as their membership list, formed an integral part of the dsausa Web site (www.dsausa.org). The membership list appeared on the screen with the continuous background of the fist holding the rose, should anyone have missed the connection with the Socialist International."
After the Washington Times in November 1998 blew the whistle on the so-called "Progressive" Caucus, "action was taken to hide the true nature of the organization, and its membership list was eventually taken off the dsausa Web site."
Vazsonyi continues: "Rep. Nancy Pelosi has long been, and is now, a member of the executive committee of the Progressive Caucus. Her election as minority leader would firmly establish the link between the Democratic Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Socialist International.
"The U.S. Constitution places no restrictions on political creeds. There is no earthly reason why socialists could not be elected to Congress if the people so choose. There is a question of honesty, though. Candidates for office ought to put their cards on the table."
No wonder some Democrat congressmen are ready to bolt the party.
That sound you hear is the toilet being flushed on the Dumb-O-Insects.
Even for a cRat Pelosi is extreme! She represents a region (San Francisco) that (even by Liberal standards) is waaaaaay off the beaten path. And yet they expect her to help their party!
LOL ....i guess the cRats are becoming less like rats and more like Lemmings! Heading off to their ultimate doom in spectacular fashion ....like lemmings to a cliff. After all, chosing Pelosi is tantamount to suicide for the party. She has no knack for deception, no way to obfuscate, she lacks a facade of honesty, and her grasp of verbal gymnastics is atrophied (in essence she lacks the 'attributes' the make a slick cRat). She is just a bad thing waiting to happen for the cRats!
If i were a cRat i would hope that they chose Ford jr from Tn. After all that kid has Clintonesque appeal (Bill not Hillary) and would surely dupe a lot of voters when necessary. He seems well versed in facades and driving points home (even when it is just lip service) as could be seen in his TV interviews. And he is by far more appealing than Pelosi could ever hope to be.
However since i am not a cRat Pelosi is fine with me since by chosing her the cRats will be ensuring their hastened extinction!
Yes. We need Comrade Pelosi right where the US can see her.
Why would the NYT change now? In the '30's an NYT reporter named Walter Duranty, a member of the Communist Party USA, sent dispatches from Russia to the NYT that won him the Pulitzer Prize. Duranty doesn't mention that Stalin is killing Ukrainians by starvation and giving Hitler a lesson in mass murder. No, Duranty paints a "Rosey" picture of Stalins 5 year plan to "Collectivise" the the rich farm land of Russia's Eastern regions.
If the New York Times isn't going to report accurately the fertilization of the Kulaks farms with the flesh of their murdered bodies, why should the Times even mention Pelosi?
