Nancy Pelosi To Anti-Bush War Protestors: ‘I’m A Fan Of Disruptions’

January 17, 2006, in San Francisco.  Nancy Pelosi addresses an audience of anti-Bush protesters.

Youtube video

Pelosi accuses George Bush of “stopping democracy.”  She tells her San Francisco audience, “Thank you for having spoken out.”  She says, “People are starting to speak out.  And do you know why?  Because they’re hearing at home.  There’s nothing more eloquent…”

She says, “I’m a fan of disrupters, people who make change.”

And then she says, “So let’s not question each other’s patriotism when we have this very honest debate that our country expects and deserves.”

Now she’s calling American’s “un-American” and openly comparing them to Nazis.  The difference?  The people she’s championing were a LOT MORE DISRUPTIVE:

Four hundred protest President Bush at United Nations

Protestors nationwide mark 5th anniversary of Iraq war with outrage

Iraq war protesters disrupt Chicago Easter Mass with fake blood

Attempted citizen’s arrest of Karl Rove results in four arrests by police

Some turn violent in march to GOP convention

It’s interesting how the New York Times hyped loud demonstrations by a couple dozen war protesters, versus how they have since attacked the grass roots protests occurring in town halls.  Someone collected assorted articles from the New York Times during the years 2003-2004 to show how they treated protests in their coverage.

They kind of forgot about what they did during the Bush years.

Compare it to what they’re doing today for yourselves.

Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have compared town hall opponents to the Democrat’s health plan as Nazis and fascists.  That’s hardly a new trick from their play book.  One ordinary guy took it upon himself to search out references to Bush being compared to Hitler by the left – including many mainstream journalists.

It never ceases to be strange to me that the socialists in our country constantly compare their socialist-despising opponents to the National Socialist German Workers Party.  Hitler wanted the giant powerful government apparatus that liberals crave, not the small and limited central government conservatives yearn for.

It is interesting that Benito Mussolini, dictator of Italy – the father of fascism and adored by the American left in the 1920s and early 1930s – invented the term “totalitarian” to describe his project.  As Jonah Goldberg points out, “Mussolini himself coined the term to describe a society where everybody belonged, where everyone was taken care of, where everything was inside the state and nothing was outside; where truly no child was left behind.”

Totalitarianism was sold under the packaging of an attractive, helpful face urging people to turn to the government to seek solutions or redress for their problems and grievances.  The ugly, oppressive face came later.

Ask yourself, as you look at what’s been going on for the last eight months – and yes, compare it to the previous 8 years under Bush – who is really pursuing totalitarian, fascist policies: conservatives or liberals?

    Pelosi is a fan of disrupters as long as one is not disrupting her agenda. Hypocrisy is running more rampant than usual in Washington, D.C. It’s just plain ugly and downright un-American.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    During the last eight years, liberals came unglued when anyone even remotely questioned their right to criticize the administration.

    They unrelentingly compared Bush to Hitler.

    Now they are shrilly attacking and demonizing people are never even came close to what the Democrats and liberals did.

    Hypocrisy defines the left. If there is a single defining characteristic, it is hypocrisy.
