Well, THAT’S refreshing!
Nancy Pelosi took to the cameras to express concern over the escalating violence at Occupy Wall Street. Apparently, the rioting in the Oakland chapter of the OWS movement was too much for the former Speaker of the House, who had been very supportive until now.
Full disclosure: I had no idea Botox kept the face flexible enough to allow for near tears. I’m as shocked as you are.
Maybe now, with Republicans and Democrats agreeing that violent protests have no place in our societ…. Wait. I’ve just been informed that the video above was from 2009! She was talking about Tea Party protests. She’s nearly in tears over these guys:
Yeah, those guys are SCARY! Look at them all just standing (and sitting, obviously preparing for battle) there with their cameras and non-burned US flags without any kind of edgy corporate-logos-instead-of-stars stuff. You can almost see the rage building up as they get ready to storm the castle – wait, Capitol. How could Nance not be afraid of this seething mob? I mean, they’re clearly dangerous because she’d NEVER think to walk through that mob carrying a gigantic gavel and laugh in their faces, right? That would be suicide.
I can’t wait to see what she has to say about these guys.
In the mean time, let’s watch what Pelosi said in response to Eric Cantor’s now eerily prescient comments about the entire Occupy Wall Street movement.
Feel the hypocrisy. Feel it.
