Pelosi is right: Political violence is a real threat

by John Dennis

Apparently referring to the death of Harvey Milk at the hands of fellow San Francisco city Supervisor Dan White in 1978, Nancy Pelosi suggested today that "rhetoric" which was "frightening" might lead to "violence." And with those words a new era is born: I agree with Mrs. Pelosi.

She is right. Politicians should refrain from harming one another. In fact, I support mandatory counseling for all elected officials so that we might reduce the prospect of politician-on-politician violence.

I would recommend that politicians follow the example of the protesters at the Tea Parties. They have firmly expressed their opinion that socialism in general, and the proposed health care reform legislation in particular, is unacceptable. And yet there has not been one episode of violence at a single Tea Party. Politicians should be shown video of these protests, repeatedly, so that they might learn how civil political discourse takes place.

And in the process, they might learn that Americans have had enough of the insatiable, unconstitutional appetites of the Federal government.

And Pelosi is

The Modern Day Marie Antoinette.

I hope and pray violence does not come. May the righteous have mercy upon the lawless, senseless and corrupt do-gooders. Man is not a domesticated pet but rather a free and independent being and therefore should be treated as a pet.

So what else is new ? I

So what else is new ? I think America started with violence.
If she does not like violence maybe she picked the wrong job.
She certainly votes for violence overseas.She voted for the Patriot Act which contains the possibility of violence against her own constituents.
Good people do Good deeds
Good people make it happen

Any act of government is an act of violence

You think it's just overseas? You think it's just a possibility that the govt. uses violence here on the serfs in the plantation known as America?

Politics is the use of violence

DUH!

What that sad excuse for a human being fears is violence against politicians, not the violence that politicians use on everyone else.

What Pelosi needs

She needs to get bitch-slapped just like in this Taiwanese Parliament:

I'd like to see congressmen/women & senators swinging punches, chairs thrown, torched paper, anything short of full-blown riot happening in Congress. This way, Congress won't pass anything. No worry about Cap and Tax, no health care tax, no national ID, no renewal of Patriot act, no bail outs, etc. It seems that the longer Congress is on break, the more taxpayers are left alone.

One of my favorite videos is Jan Helfeld's

interview of Pelosi. As soon as his very civil and peaceful questions about the salary paid her interns being below the mandated minimum wage made her too uncomfortable, her response: "Guard!"
She knows nothing but how to wield violence and power.

Bump, for a whole new spin!

The Roman Senate was a hotbed of violent attacks....

One of the most frightening things in politics is "the Pelosi".
