Nancy Pelosi And Steny Hoyer Come Out Against First Amendment Rights

Just when I thought that the Democrats couldn't do or say anything more stupid or hypocritical than what they've already done or said, Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer had to open their mouths and go and prove me wrong.

First, let's go back a few years and remember what other Dems have said about voicing opposition to Washington D.C. In 2003, Hillary Clinton (D-NY) proclaimed the following:

Dissent is patriotic!

Now, I was not aware that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) were in disagreement with then Sen. Clinton's sentiments. Neither one made the slightest peep about it when Clinton made her statement.

But today, when Joe and Jane Average American are protesting several facets of HR3200, the socialized medicine bill, dissent, in their eyes, has become "un-American."

Here is their joint opinion column from USA Today:

'Un-American' Attacks Can't Derail Health Care Debate
Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer
USA Today
August 10, 2009

From which you will note the following:

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just 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.

First off, the facts are the side of the protestors. We've shown this in the following blog entries:

Fact Checking Obama's Socialized Health Care Claims

Congressional Budget Office: Nationalized Health Care Will Increase Costs, Not Reduce Them
July 17, 2009

You'll notice that niether Pelosi nor Hoyer ever mentioned any of this. In their USA Today column, they simply repeated the same old tired talking points that have been proven to be false over the past eight months.

Second, the opposing views are not being drowned out. The American people are tired of hearing the same old lies about health care over and over and over again. When they hear those same old tired lies, they become angry and begin shouting back.

We know what it will cost and that it won't be cheaper. It will be more expensive as the CBO has shown us.

We know that 47 million people are not covered with health insurance. But we also know that at least a third of those are illegal aliens, most of the rest are people that can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it and the rest have access to Medicare.

We know that the quality of health care will go down as it has in every other country that has adopted socialized medicine.

When we hear lies, we get mad.

And instead of admitting the facts, Pelosi and Hoyer try to hide them by calling those who would expose the facts "un-American."

I don't see how any Democrat could ever point with pride towards these two hypocrites and say, "They are our leaders!".

These lefty fascists like Pelosi would be really quite comical…if WE weren’t the ones they were planning to control-

Now the DNC is deploying union palookas while at the same time hypocritically dismissing Obamacare opponents as paid shills -even running TV ads to slander them- and delirious SanFranNan is seeing imaginary Swastikas.
This should make clear to anyone just what these power-drunk elitists think of your opinion.

Note that whenever Obama, Emanuel, or Gibbs are asked about why polls show SO many people oppose their misguided Cap-n-Trade and Obamacare proposals, they ALWAYS segue-right-into “we need to educate the public…”.

LOL- save your breath… Constitutionally-aware American patriots don’t take lectures from Marxists.
