When asked whether the health care reform protests at town halls around the country were legitimate, Nancy Pelosi said this: “I think they’re AstroTurf. You be the judge. They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.”
I’ve watched lots of these videos, and seen more on the news. I saw no swastikas, and you can be assured that if they were carrying that symbol the mainstream media would be more than happy to show you the pictures 24/7. Conclusion: Nancy Pelosi is a dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking liar. But then, you knew that.
Or maybe she’s just confused the protestors against Obama with her fellow travelers on the Left. (WARNING: This link will take you to Democratic Underground. You will need a lot of disinfectant and a strong shower to make yourself right again after descending into this particular swamp.)
Nah…she’s a liar.
UPDATE: Jonah Goldberg is great on NRO about the hypocrisy and fear the Dems are displaying.
UPDATE II: I was planning on doing this today, but Michelle Malkin did the heavy lifting. In honor of Barbara Boxer’s dismissal of health care reform opponents are being too well-dressed and Robert Gibbs’ dismissal of them as the “Brooks Brothers Brigade,” here is what sincere, real, honest grassroots protesters wear.
UPDATE III: This picture has come to light:
This doesn’t mean that Pelosi is not lying. For starters, this is one picture of one person and Pelosi clearly is insinuating that this kind of sign is common at these town halls when they aren’t. So I enter the picture as evidence that I may be wrong. But I’m not wrong. She’s still a dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking, liar.
