Pelosi accuses those protesting health care plan of "carrying Swastikas and symbols like that"

Pelosi is accusing people of not genuinely being upset about the government takeover of health care. That they are merely being put up by others to protest. She is also saying that they are "carrying Swastikas and symbols like that."



Apparently, Pelosi isn't the only person of claiming the protests involve AstroTurfing. The WSJ:

Briefing reporters Tuesday, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs suggested that the opposition is being organized by a small group seeking to create "manufactured anger."

"I hope people will take a jaundiced eye to what is clearly the AstroTurf nature of so-called grass-roots lobbying," Mr. Gibbs said.

So why don't we have any pictures of these imaginary swastikas? Meanwhile, Pelosi swings a mean hammer and sickle.

For these people, SHAME is not even in their vocabularies.

National Socialists, Or Soviet Socialists? Nancy, the sweet dear thing she is, belongs to the latter, and hates the former.

Problem is, I fail to see any difference between the two entities.

I can't afford AstroTurf. And I suspect if I tried to replace my lawn with it, the city would object in no uncertain terms.

But should I expect the next mail from Mutax of Omxxx to include a check?

Bah.
