Pelosi: "He Hit Me Back First!"

In a summer where ACORN-affiliated union thugs took the President's advice to hit protesters back "twice as hard" quite literally, it's now amazing to hear House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's born-again concerns of political violence erupting from harsh rhetoric.

This is the same woman who claimed Obamacare protesters carried swastikas to townhall meetings, and has been silent as Americans have been attacked as racists and radicals by everyone from officials within the Administration itself and Congress to street-level loonies.

Perhaps if Pelosi raised her voice earlier, when SEIU union thugs were beating people at town halls, or when activists were cannibalizing elderly protesters on the streets, I'd find her new-found fears more legitimate.

As it now stands, she sounds like a child complaining that she might get hit back first.

Update: It's also interesting that Pelosi only recalled the political violence from the late 70s that affected liberals. The Park Police station bombing in 1970 and the bomb plot against conservative California state senator John V. Briggs and dozens of other bombings, shooting, and robberies committed by left-wing terrorist groups don't seem to have troubled her at all.

If Pelosi is "concerned" about political violence, it's because she and the Leftists are planning some.

I'm a happy and peaceful person, myself. But I've got enough firearms to equip a couple of platoons, with plenty left over for me, and I'm still buying all the ammo I can afford, every time I can afford it.

In other words, I trust those crocodile tears from Pelosi just like I trust most of the avowals of "Good Faith" from the Left, which is not at all. We may see a false flag riot, or worse, coming up any day now.

Be nice, be civil and respectful, but keep your powder dry, folks. We may well need it.

Yeah, but why highlight leftists violence. Even you can understand that.

This radical liberal is the best asset the Republican Party has.

This is the woman who allows Code Pink to disrespect military recruiters in her district? THis is the woman that wanted ROTC banned from universities -- and joined the groups that ran the military personnel from their booths at job fairs?

Nancy Pelosi was very quiet when conservatives were booed and threatened at Columbia University.

Nancy Pelosi -- your crazy old aunt's deranged mother.

Isn't govt funding of an organization that would use sexual slavery of children to fund political campaigns an incitement to violence? Would violence be justified to end such a thing? If congress refuses to end support for ACORN and Holder does not use RICO against such an organization, would violence against ACORN or their supporters be morally justified to end support for sexual slavery of children. If the Dems keep using such corruption to fund their campaigns, they cannot criticize anybody for thinking about violence.

BINGO! We have a winner!

That would give the Corruptocrats the "crisis" they have been waiting for. However, I do not think that many states would go along with them if they tried doing something drastic like declaring martial law and attempted to disarm the citizens. What they would end up with is a civil war, one they can not win.

I am a 65 year old Vietnam Vet. I can remember the demonstrations put on by the "peace loving"
leftist college students and anti "WAR"
demonstrators. The demonstrations at the Republican convention, and adnauseum. All these leftist demos had violence as a common event.
All the Tea Partys, and the march on Washington
by normal working class people had to my knowledge, zero violent incidents. That said,
Nancy is right to be afraid. The people at the tea partys and march on Washington are the
backbone of America. The working class, tax paying contributers to our society. In other words, the same type of person who went to war during WW II and destroyed the National SOCIALIST
party and the Imperialist aggressors in Japan.
History shows in America
the most violence prone segment of our society is the LEFTISTS. History also shows that when the working class finally has enough, "Katy bar the door" These so called liberals, who are really not truly liberal unless you believe in their way, cannot comprehend the concept of pushing too hard and will learn the hard way to
thinking people who have learned to plan ahead and understand long term consequences and effects
will target the leaders and beaurocrats who order the restrictions on our civil rights. The
drones will automatically fall by the wayside.
These statists who preach that we must "share" only seem to be willing to share other peoples money, not their own. Lets see what time shows us.

Paul, I keep posting the fact that Democrats should be very concerned regarding the recent protestors. These are not the usual leftists loons protesting, these are the bill payers of this country and are getting irate of continually be compelled to "water the weeds." In fact the "weeds" should also be concerned as their "free lunch" could come to an end.

I found it odd that the Speaker of the House spent her time worrying about violence, but didn't try to use her office to help lower the level of the din.

This is sort of like telling a crowd with pitchforks that if they don't watch out somebody might get hurt, then wishing the crowd "Godspeed."

I'm amazed at the emotional range that she can achieve despite the botox.

I don't think Squeaky Fromm's assassination attempt on Gerald Ford entered Pelosi's mind.

Pelosi obviously is refering to Milk and Moscone as her arid eyes crust over. The only problem with THAT is that the so-called "political violence" in this instance was not like, say, James Earl Ray, committed by someone opposed to Milk's politics but by a disgruntled Dem apparatchik looking to redress his career grievances. I don't know how whatever rhetorical climate be blamed for that. Rather it seems the attitude of the life-long gub careerist is the motivator, that is if we need one other than the bitter derangement of one man, Dan White.*
