The Politics of Shame: Nancy Pelosi’s “Frightening” Propaganda Machine

quilandink1In a video that should give the viewer a glimpse of the upcoming latest slander campaign from the far left liberal camp, Nancy Pelosi issued her latest call to the troops in her propaganda battalion:

“Let’s make sure everyone knows the Tea Party crowd is frightening”.

Last Thursday, in a news conference, she gave a stunning high drama performance. All the elements were there: The crying, the pauses for effect leaving her at a loss for words, and references to past violent acts that have absolutely nothing to do with what is occuring in the Tea Party movement.

Here are some highlights from an article on Nancy’s statements written by Laurie Kellan at the Associated Press:

“WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the anti-government rhetoric over President Barack Obama’s health care reform effort is troubling because it reminds her of the violent debate over gay rights that roiled San Francisco in the 1970s.”

End quote. The same article goes on to say:

“On Thursday, Pelosi was answering a question about whether the current vitriol concerned her. The questioner did not refer to the murders of Milk or Moscone, or the turmoil in San Francisco three decades ago. Pelosi referenced those events on her own and grew uncharacteristically emotional…….Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond to a request for examples of contemporary statements that reminded the speaker of the rhetoric of 1970s San Francisco.”

End quotes of Ms. Kellan’s article, Associated Press. You can read entire article by clicking here.  To see Nancy’s high drama performance on tape, you can watch the video of this charade by clicking here. Here is a quote from Pelosi in the video:

“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw … I saw this myself in the late ’70s in San Francisco,” Pelosi said, choking up and with tears forming in her eyes. “This kind of rhetoric is just, is really frightening and it created a climate in which we, violence took place and … I wish that we would all, again, curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements that are made.”

Nancy never did bother to explain how she relates the murder of gay activist Harvey Milk to the Tea Party movement, nor has she been able to provide any evidence of this “danger”, or of Nazism, on behalf of the participants of the Tea Party efforts. She’s just “frightened”. Could it be she is really just frightened that her political career is rapidly declining? Or that her effort to force Socialism down our throats is not going over so easily?

Not content to slander the Tea Party movement unjustly as “Nazis”, Nancy has now unleashed the fear tactic. This is troubling, but not surprising. Fear is the tactic of tyranny and is used in many ways. As is slander, as is scapegoating.

Joe Wilson is an excellent example of scapegoating. And Hitler loved slander. His slander and scapegoating tactics convinced the German people that six million innocent Jews deserved to be butchered and sent to the ovens.

Shame on you Hitler. And shame on you Nancy Pelosi for your perpetual attempts to shame and slander decent Americans as mentally deficient Nazis who are a threat to the nation. If there is anything “frightening” going on here, it is the hate campaign you are continuously unleashing against these innocent people from your podium on the Hill. That is frightening, and it is disgraceful.

I said as soon as I saw the video that the “these people are frightening” mantra would now become the new liberal propaganda against those who oppose them. And it has. It took no time at all for the far left to rally to that cry, and even for local editors to print articles about the Tea Party movement based on Nancy’s unfounded and melodramatic performance.

Only Madam Speaker Pelosi knows why she is so frightened. But we should all be frightened of her rhetoric. We have seen this slander tactic before (see Hitler).

The American people watching from the sidelines are not sure what is going on. All they know is that according to Nancy Pelosi and her liberal left propaganda machine – which includes the mainstream media, we are Nazis, we are racists, and we are supposedly dangerous.

It never occurred to her that we are simply Americans who are exercising our Constitutional right to protest efforts by her party to destroy our beloved country with Socialism. And that, is the real danger. The only thing Americans should be “frightened” of is the success of such efforts by the far left liberal wing.

As we pray for the safety and peace of both our nation and our President, let us also pray that the threat of the agenda of the far left vanishes from the national landscape with the light of understanding shining boldly upon it:

May that understanding drive the troubling agenda of liberals from the shadows, and into the blinding light of day, where it can be exposed, and seen to be the disturbing and un-American politics that it truly has become.

And before we condemn innocent Americans as Nazis and a threat to society, let us also dare to recognize the Politics of Shame for what it is: A disgraceful tactic to gain political power on the part of the left – who has repeatedly demonstrated they are so devoid of moral and ethical conduct, that they would embrace slander, and rally beneath it’s foul and tyrannical banner.

Be proud of yourself America for not bowing down to the lie. I know you are not Nazis, and I know you are not dangerous. I salute your endeavors. Godspeed, and for everyone’s sake, may you prevail with peace, with dignity, and with the honorable colors of our sacred banner flying freely in your midst, as you exercise the liberty that is your birthright through the sacrifices of our founding fathers.

They are marching with you in spirit, it is their just cause you have rallied to, and it is your inalienable and Constitutional right to continue the animating contest for freedom.

“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seals in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin”~Samuel Adams
