Pelosi's recent threat to "investigate those opposing the mosque" is indicative of how sick our once-free society has become. Clearly it was directed at those of us who are opposed to the gross offense and humiliation of the Ground Zero Islamic supremacist mosque.
But more than that, it is a direct threat to the 70% of Americans vehemently opposed to the Islamic Supremacist mosque.
The left, dismissive of the grief and the offense to 911 families and the majority of Americans, is sick in its fierce pursuit to erect the victory mosque. They have even tried to blame me for the natural and logical response to an Islamic supremacist mosque on a building that was part of the attack on 911. It is, essentially, another attack. The Geller hit pieces have been fast and furious and obvious, as if removing any legitimacy from my imprimatur will defuse the pain and anger. Never gonna happen. Here again, the contempt that the left (politicians and media) show for the American people is palpable. Their subjectivity is now completely void of reality.
This is the change that America signed on to? Silencing free speech for fear of harassment and oppression by statists, collectivists and Islamic supremacists. We have sunk so far, so fast, it is breathtaking.
What is interesting in all this is how irrelevant the media is rendering itself. People are really not listening to them as they shill for enemies and destroyers.
I strongly recommend Americans who oppose thug politicians and the neo-stalinism, join us at our rally September 11 at 3pm. Everyone who is anyone on American life will be there. That means you.
Lowry in New York Post: Nancy's nefarious conspiracy theory
Is Nancy Pelosi making a bid to join Robert Welch, longtime leader of the John Birch Society, as a truly great conspiracy theorist?
It would seem only an inspired paranoic could find it so unaccountably strange -- cue the "Twilight Zone" theme music -- that there's a public outcry about a mosque project planned two blocks from Ground Zero that an investigation is in order. But Pelosi senses foul play.
"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some," she told KCBS radio in San Francisco late Tuesday. "And I join those who have called for looking into how this opposition to the mosque is being funded."
What everyone else in America sees as a natural reaction against an ill-advised project, Nancy Pelosi sees as . . . Chinatown.
Her mental health is fine, of course; it's only her perspective that's warped. She is such a deeply parochial liberal that every time public opinion swings in a direction she dislikes, she can only imagine malign financiers or puppet-masters at work.
She famously discounted the Tea Party as an "astroturf" movement, directed by the Republican Party. She couldn't process the idea of a genuine grass-roots revolt against big government. That kind of thing just doesn't happen in San Francisco. If Pelosi were to star in a sci-fi movie, it'd be "The Speaker from Another Planet."
Let's indulge Madame Speaker and consider the sources of the mosque controversy.
A blogger named Pamela Geller was on the case early. Pelosi might not have heard, but in early 21st century America, it's possible to set up blogs without corporate backing or dead drops of cash from shadowy sources.
Next, reporters and columnists for The Post brought a tidal wave of public attention to the project. This is the kind of thing major newspapers do, especially in an area that has been so sensitive and covered so minutely.
Then there's the most important Democratic opponent of the project, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. His top backers are MGM Mirage, the casino, and Weitz & Luxenberg, the law firm. After some digging, perhaps Pelosi can find if they've had a subtle, long-term agenda to back the influential Democratic politician most likely to pull the plug on offensive Ground Zero projects.
In trying to explain her remarks, Pelosi said we need transparency in the funding of the mosque and in the funding of the opponents. This is bizarro moral equivalence. Transparency is so important in the case of the mosque because of the Saudis' history of backing institutions with radical imams and educational materials. The opponents, in contrast, are simply exercising their First Amendment rights to comment on, and oppose, a controversial project.
