Dilemma of Pelosi and the Perils of her Warning
By Joseph Parish
I was somewhat stunned when I recently listened to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's latest commentary involving American’s abilities to observe their constitutional liberties of free speech. I couldn’t believe my ears when I took note of how she compared the protests of the irritated patriots with the violent anti-gay rallies that San Francisco experienced in the late 70s. She naturally was referring to the assassination of several local San Francisco politicians.
The situation that she referenced concerned the assassination of Harvey Milk who was the first open gay member of San Francisco’s board of supervisors along with the cities Mayor George Moscone. These gentlemen were killed by Dan White, a conservative democrat who was outraged at losing his job. In fact, all three of the principle characters in this drama of political violence for which Nancy refers were democrats.
These insults by Pelosi as she balanced the genuine opposition of current protesters to these assassinations were immediately felt as a slap in the face as it should be for every American in the country. Although she proclaimed that we all should accept responsibility for not only our actions but also our words she momentarily seems to have forgotten many of the offensive comments she has stated in recent months.
Pelosi was extremely quick in relating her concerns involving the language being employed within the framework of the protests and the various town hall meetings bring to the surface memories of the more violent times of the 70s within her home district of California. As she expanded upon her remarks she reiterated that such remarks fashioned a climate of violence and tended to frighten her. Could it be that this woman is commencing fears for her own safety in view of so many citizens becoming vocal in their concerns towards current policies? I thought back and found it extremely interesting that she expressed no fear what-so-ever for our military personnel as she publicly circumvented our military agenda by visiting Syria or as she shamelessly accused our military of killing innocent civilians.
Yes, I do believe that our elected politicians are becoming scared and they should rightfully be very scared. They have managed to cross the proverbial line drawn in the sand and they know they are well aware of this fact but for reasons unknown they still persist in doing the same anti-American acts. In short, just before the lady embark upon shedding her crocodile tears she insinuated that responsible Americans should curtail their enthusiasm and ease up on the negative verbal assaults on the government’s socialist style agenda.
I sat for silently for several moments upon hearing her speech and thought briefly of how this hypocritical drama queen who was standing at the podium in front of me was one of the first to recently refer to anti-liberal demonstrators as American Nazis, astro-turf and an assortment of analogous insults just two months previously, however now she stands before me with the moral authority to dictate to the American people that they should be careful in what they say. In all reality she completely fails to perceive that it is this "enthusiasm" which has previously built America to the greatness that it is.
In the past I have witnessed members of the Democratic Party passionately protest the war on terror, the overthrow of a brutal dictator in Iraq and the condemnation of both our CIA and our brave military complex. Does Pelosi forget so quickly how she referred to the members of the CIA as “Liars”? Perhaps it is merely one of her senior moments that she over-looks her comments concerning our previous president behaving as a Nazi? Has she developed a case of selective amnesia on how negative her outrageous comments were against our military troops? Yes folks, these are the very people who are pushing for Gitmo detainees to reside in yours and my neighborhood and the ones who have recently referred to terrorist as "freedom fighters". I speak here of those people who look at our dedicated military troops and proceed to spit on them.
All these actions of which I speak have been declared to be Patriotic by these people. Racism has developed into a new meaning under the Obama administration. It now indicates anyone who may disagree with the ruling democratic party. If you in any way, shape or form disagree with Obama’s policies you are either considered a part of a dangerous radical movement or you are a racist. Traditionally, we have every right to embrace these patriotic actions in view of our current administration bedding down with the likes of organizations known as the Weather Underground and other subversive groups.
I did not vote for Bush at all, in fact a review of my website archives would reveal that I was one of his greatest opponents. Likewise I did not vote for Obama either in this past election. I want to make this perfectly clear that I refused to vote for Obama due to his political agenda being closely aligned with socialist principles and not upon his race.
It appears to me that the people doing any sort of name calling during this administration are supporters of this woman and her evil cohorts. They have been placing established labels on all those who have been opposing the Presidents agenda. The have been calling names to anyone who fail to agree with their concepts. It seems that under this administration dissent is no longer considered a patriotic action.
She acts as if dissent is something new to our political arena however she seems to completely forget our current president’s close friend Mr. William Ayers’ activities during the turbulent 60s. Or perhaps she has forgotten the multitude of Bush-Hitler signs which made their debate during Bushes presidency. Where was speaker Pelosi at those critical times? Where were her comments when it was happening to someone else? Lest we forget dissent is part of our patriotic duty and as such by its very nature dissent represents the result of a politicians actions which obviously failed to represent the will of the people.
In my perception of her dialogue it appears that she herself is instigating violence amongst those who may disagree with her. Madame Speaker may not realize it but if our country erupts in violence it may well be a result of her unthinking comments. She would be wise to remember that she will reap what she sows.
The tea party protestors that assembled resulted in no arrests what so ever being made by the DC police department. Most of the participants were of middle-age with middle class incomes. They were not the sort of people who one would expect to riot nor blatantly start fires or toss garbage cans into glass windows. These were citizens who practiced responsible assembly unlike the tactics promoted by ACORN who perjured and conspired to defraud the government on tax issues, or militaristic Black Panther thugs that would hang out and molest voters at the Philadelphia polling locations.
I would like everyone to take a short, deep breath for a moment and think honestly about this situation that we have here. Nancy appears to definitely be fanning the flames with all her rhetoric on potential disruption of our way of life and the horrors that it can bring. If this kind of hate filled rhetoric is allowed to continue it may be that her very words and actions may incite this rioting and chaos that could develop in our streets. Are Pelosi and her comrades seeking a violent solution to our national problems so they can justify the use of force in order to diminish our constitutional right? Perhaps the agenda here is more then what it appears to be. Possibly it is time for Ms. Pelosi and Obama to declare a National Emergency where they would be afforded the opportunity to suspend habeas corpus. This would then allow the current administration to take us “unbalanced people” to various Government centers for proper indoctrination. At the same time these unscrupulous leaders could deny the citizens the privilege of voting for their representatives in the next election as well as eliminating private firearm ownership.
Or could she secretly be sending signal for violence to start? Let’s face facts Pelosi is merely several heartbeats from moving into the White House. Even if we had people in congress that would oppose her taking the reins of government upon the deaths of the President and the Vice President they simply would not have time needed to act. Congress would have neither the necessary time nor the authority to stop her. She would quickly be in a limo and ultimately on her way to her new home at the White House.
