Pelosi/Hoyer op-ed in Monday USATODAY calls townhall protesters protesting against government run health care are “un-American“.What, Democrat protest it is a grass roots movement but when Republicans protest they are un American and an angry mob? LMAO…..nice!
This is why states need to invoke their 10th amendment rights, because delirious morons like Pelosi and her ilk are deciding what shoud be done with our country!
It is clear to Representative Pelosi and her cohorts that the majority of Americans do not want further government intrusion into their lives, hence Mrs. Pelosi’s attempts at demonizing ordinary Americans.
Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.
She is referring to the many town hall meetings where Americans were voicing their displeasure to government run health care. Deliberately smearing Americans for voicing their opinions.
“However, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. These tactics have included hanging in effigy one Democratic member of Congress in Maryland and protesters holding a sign displaying a tombstone with the name of another congressman in Texas, where protesters also shouted”Just say no!” drowning out those who wanted to hold a substantive discussion.
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid notjust of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.”
Would you like to know what’s really un-American, Madame Speaker? The President of the United States asking his supporters to “flag” citizens who openly oppose his policies is un-American. Passing the largest tax hike in U.S. history, during a recession, is un-American. Redistributing money from hard-working taxpayers to other voters, in the interest of buying support at the polls, is un-American. Associating with bigots like Jeremiah Wright and terrorists like Bill Ayers is un-American.
“Reforming” healthcare in a way that cheapens human life, eliminates competition, stifles innovation and outlaws choice is thoroughly UN-AMERICAN as well, Madame Speaker. We won’t stand for it — not now nor ever. Get used to the protests. We won’t let up until January 2011 when, God willing, you’re no longer Speaker of the House.
But I wouldn’t take Nancy’s nutcase statements too personally, my fellow ObamaCare resistors. Pelosi is a certified wacko who uses the phrase “un-American” as a catch-all for anyone who doesn’t subscribe to her loony worldview. You’re in good company!
Sadly, the mainstream media is doing their part in painting these town halls as darkly as possible, regardless of the evidence that SEIU goons, Blueshirts, have already attacked health care protesters.
Let’s wait until the 2010 congressional elections and see their opinions voiced in turning back European style socialism by voting these malefactors out of office.
The LA Time’s Headline Today:
We’ve all heard about those noisy protests greeting Democratic lawmakers trying to drum up support for President Obama’s health plan. One might assume all the noise is coming from opponents of the plan. As it turns out, that’s not the case.
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats toured a homeless clinic in Colorado this week, supporters of the plan matched the opponents shout for shout, sign for sign, hollering their own slogans at the afternoon traffic passing the Stout Street Clinic in downtown Denver.
