Wow. So Nancy Pelosi can be strong and stand up to protesters? As long as they are not from the Tea Party anyways. In what could only be called a spectacle, Code Pink protesters interrupted a speech by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It was a spectacle because it highlights the many levels of hypocrisy that has been perpetrated on all of the American people by the radical left.
It wasn't that long ago that the Tea Party protests erupted in response to the looming healthcare bill and the sudden realization of the reality and the taxes that would be necessary to support such reckless spending. People who were never political in their entire lives went to 'Town Halls' so that they could be heard by their supposed representatives. To most of these people, government was going to go to far, and there was no end in sight.
Knowing, ah heck - inventing, the power of protest and the power of disapproval, the left first looked to ignore the dissenting voices. Then they ridiculed the dissenting voices. And, when that did not work either, they tried to squelch the speech with the old, trusted, and reliably used political correctness card.
Yes, that is right, exhibiting your frustration and your opposition to the position that your elected official is taking is just down right aggressive and practically violent. Unless of course you are a right wing communist. The emotional outrage is par for the course here and you just have to manage your way through it. No big deal. It happens all the time.
Can you imagine if it were the Tea Party? The shrill of the voice, the manner of the delivery, and the temerity of the interruption would all be cause for hours of critiques and condemnation. But if you are on the left? Well then, that is just good politics.
It's great just to hear her hem and haw at the inconvenience. My favorite line is;
"They are throwing stuff, you're going to have to leave"Can you imagine if they had that kind of footage from a Tea Party demonstration? The clip would be played non-stop. I am betting you won't see this clip at all on network news.
Gotta love it!
