So, Dissent was Patriotic for Nancy Pelosi in 2006? But not today?

Fast-forward this 2006 left-wing video of Nancy Pelosi at a San Francisco anti-war forum to 3:48, when hard Leftists start shouting and disrupting.

The moderator tries to discourage a shouting match.

Pelosi cuts off the moderator and encourages her hecklers chanting “NO MORE WAR:”

Pelosi: “I appreciate that. I appreciate that you as advocates can say that. That’s okay. That’s okay.”

At 4:50, a group of disrupters march up to the stage and stand at her feet with protest signs.

Pelosi greets and applauds them.

At 5:40, the crowd erupts and the shouts continue.

Sooooooooo, This dissent is patriotic?

  • They are a bunch of hypocrites! And COMPLETELY thrown off by the right using the same tactics to get their voice heard. the right usually just sits back and hopes that good sense will out...it's not happening. And all the left leaning comentators and the Pelosi/Reid/lee people, and the PRESIDENT... don't seem to get that this is about more than healthcare and pissing off more than just repubs!!

  • Well, yeah, of course. Haven't you heard? There are TWO sets of rules. The ones the dems make up as they go,and the ones they expect the rest of us to follow to the letter! The farce that masqueraded as the "election" should have proven that one loud and clear. And, yeah, Carpy,you are right, they personify hypocrites,and pharisees!

  • I found this article... The House's top two Democrats said Monday that some of the behavior of health care overhaul opponents is “simply un-American.” Protesters have disrupted town-hall meetings held by lawmakers, in some cases shouting down speakers at the events. “These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said. “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.”


    WOW, it wasn't Un-American in 2006, Nancy!!  When your anti-war protesters carried nazi signs, disrupted speaking engagements.....  The hypocrisy is so funny, I had to post it on my journal

  • Pelosi is doing her best to destroy the Democratic party and ruin Obama's chance of re-election. Are you sure she isn't a right-wing shill? LOL

    She is a tool.

  • The Dem's are thinking....oh S**t! Now what do we do ?

    The Dem's and liberals are not use to the other side voicing our concerns, instead of passively taking their crap, like we have for the last 20 years and don't forget we have had a Dem congress since 2006......I cant wait till I get to the polls.....to vote some Dem's out of congress!!!

  • I think they just aren't used to conservatives using their voice so loud. It isn't often that the right comes out to protest something. They are much more likely to utilize the phone and to send letters to their elected officials. Problem is, they aren't listening anymore and the only way to make sure they know how you feel is to show up at a town hall meeting and say it out loud in front of others that feel the same way. This is what they get for ignoring a huge number of your constituency on such large and expensive issues.


    Oh, and yes, there seems to be a HUGE double standard when it comes to the Dem. party. What's good for the goose and all.

  • Yes hypocrites to the max.They are also the ones putting plants all over the place and claiming that is all we are doing LOL pathetic.It is true that conservatives let it go on too long.Notice even on here most of the liberals tell us to just wait and see and insulting us for even speaking up? Then there are those with this mess "STFU!" "Why don't you just STFU!" They would love us to do just that like we have for the last many years.That is why we are in this mess because we thought common sense and whats right would prevail but the truth is it wont without a fight.
