Protest is un-American?

Where would we be without the Boston Tea Party? Rosa Parks' refusal to move? The Million Man March? Need I go on?

Protest is apart of our history. Protest and freedom of speech DEFINES America.

Yet, Nancy Pelosi sure likes to call things "un-American."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, insisting at the start of a long and politically heated summer congressional recess that healthcare reform can be achieved this fall, today are calling the disruption of "town-hall'' meetings by vocal protesters "simply un-American.''

"However, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not merely to misrepresent the health insurance reform legislation, but to disrupt public meetings and prevent members of Congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue,'' the two leaders write. "These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views -- but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.''
And members of Congress shutting out their constituents' concerns over BAD policy is misrepresentation.

And this, from a woman who thinks enforcing American immigration law is also "un-American." Nancy, get a new word.

Pelosi and Hoyer should be recalled immediately.

These lefty fascists like Pelosi would be really quite comical…if WE weren’t the ones they were planning to control-

Now the DNC is deploying union palookas while at the same time hypocritically dismissing Obamacare opponents as paid shills -even running TV ads to slander them- and delirious SanFranNan is seeing imaginary Swastikas.
This should make clear to anyone just what these power-drunk elitists think of your opinion.

Note that whenever Obama, Emanuel, or Gibbs are asked about why polls show SO many people oppose their misguided Cap-n-Trade and Obamacare proposals, they ALWAYS segue-right-into “we need to educate the public…”.

LOL- save your breath… Constitutionally-aware American patriots don’t take lectures from Marxists.
