Oh, Nancy

Via Memorandum:

Oh Nancy, we're not a violent people. We are nothing more or less than a population who has grown weary of an unresponsive government. We're sick of you. Want to know why? Let's start with your own words:

“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.”

To which I say:

"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. Matthew 7:5

Or to paraphrase, cut the crap on your own ugly rhetoric before you get all exercised about the rhetoric of others.

Madam Speaker, we have been called thugs, mobs, racists, white supremacists, teabaggers, lunatics, ad nauseum, simply because we think that this country is heading in the wrong direction and have stood up across this great country and said so.

We love this country. We are going to stand up for what we believe is right. But dry those crocodile tears because we are not violent. We do however, resent the hell out of you implying that we are.
