Wonder what you would find if you frisked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a news conference on Capitol Hill?
Answer: She chokes up over the potential of political violence.
Speaker Pelosi… Are you kidding me!? This woman is unbelievable. Is she really trying to make the argument that the opposition towards Obamacare and bigger government reminds her of the incident in 1978 when Dan White shot and killed Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk!? Of course she would. The far-left blame Glenn Beck for being a fearmonger, what do you call this!? This is how off base Nancy Pelosi is with making this argument:
It wasn’t political debate that drove Dan White to commit murder. He was a lunatic. At his trial, White tried to evade responsibility for his acts in part through arguing that he had a diminished capacity caused in part by his diet, which led to it being ridiculed as “the Twinkie defense.” White only got sentenced to a short term in prison, which was a grave injustice. He should have gotten two life terms for the murders, which was a good argument for a better approach in California to law and order.
Milk and Moscone’s murder has nothing to do with political debate, and no one other than White was responsible for the murders. Pelosi wants to silence opposition since she cannot outargue it, and her implied references to the murders of Milk and Moscone as somehow comparable to political opposition to the Obama administration is flat-out despicable.
It’s also worth pointing out that Dan White was not a right-wing politician; he was a registered Democrat and considered a moderate. He assassinated Moscone after the mayor refused to reappoint him as supervisor, a post White had resigned but then regretted leaving. He shot Milk five times on the way out of City Hall after personal animosity between the two had erupted earlier over a zoning dispute.
Good job Speaker. You once again made yourself look unintelligent. Keep up the bad work and hopefully you’ll lose your next election.
