Speaker Pelosi Was Once a “Fan” of Those “Un-American” Protesters

By now, most people have read — or at least heard about — the USA Today column in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer labeled the protesters of Obama’s health care plan “Un-American.”   But apparently the Madam Speaker used to be a big fan of those “angry mobs.”

In a January 2006 town hall event, captured in this video being circulated on the web, Pelosi applauded a group of disruptive, anti-war protesters by stating, “your advocacy is very American and very important.”  She went further in stating, “There is nothing more articulate, more eloquent to a member of Congress than the voice of his or her own constituents.”

Pelosi closed by saying “I am a fan of disruptors!”  I guess she is only “a fan” when it’s convenient for her agenda.
