Let’s start out with a little quote, shall we?
“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late 70s in San Francisco, this king of rhetoric. … It created a climate in which violence took place. … I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not a balanced as the person making the statements may assume.”
That was in reference to the recent Occupy Wall Street crowd, right? Wrong. That was Nancy Pelosi talking about the tea party in 2009. What does she have to say about the Occupy Wall Street kids? “God bless them.” Let’s take a look at some of the rhetoric from these “blessed” kids and those who are speaking at their rallies
In New Orleans we have people marching who are apparently shouting to “Kill the cops!”
This occupier in New York has a message for Republicans: “They want a class war? They’ll get one …”
Sometimes actions speak louder than words .. a protestor in New York was photographed defecating on a police car.
Actor Danny Glover spoke at an occupy demonstration in LA where he said, “We need 24/7 warriors.”
This is just a smattering of the incidents being reported around the country. What does Nancy Pelosi have to say about this kind of behavior? She doesn’t. She only has a message for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who referred to these kids at “mobs.” Pelosi says, "I didn't hear him say anything when the Tea Party was out demonstrating, actually spitting on members of Congress right here in the Capitol and he and his colleagues were putting signs in the windows encouraging them. But let's not get down to that." Perhaps the reason Princess Pelosi doesn’t want to get into that is because there is no documented proof that tea party protestors spit on members of Congress. Meanwhile, we have lots of documented proof of the antics of these Wall Street kids.
While the tea party protestors were calling for Congress to “kill the bill” (ObamaCare), the occupy Wall Street crowd is calling to “kill the wealthy.” Where is Nancy Pelosi’s comment on this type of behavior or rhetoric … the pot calling the kettle black?
