Pelosi Disavows Any Knowledge Of Congressional Activities And Warns Of Violence To Come
Nancy Pelosi again demonstrated her firm understanding of current events. When asked about an amendment to defund ACORN that passed the Senate Monday (a similar Bill passed in the House of Representatives today), Pelosi had this to say, "I don't even know what they passed. What did they do? They defunded it?" That was yesterday.
Today, she bordered on tears as she choked out a warning about where she thinks these rallies and town hall meetings might lead. "I saw this myself in the late 70's in San Francisco" she laments, "This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which violence took place..."
It's true, there were violent protests in the 70's, but they weren't being held by any conservative groups. The Black Panthers, various communist and labor movements were staging violent, anti-government rallies. There has already been violence at a town hall meeting, but again, it was perpetrated by the left. The only people using rhetoric, slogans, and racial slurs...also all on the left. The TEA Partiers, 9/12 errs and others who have shown up with legitimate concerns and questions have engaged in nothing more violent than raising their voices or walking out of meetings. Who exactly is it Nancy Pelosi believes will be inciting the violence of which she speaks?
