Pelosi Wants Probe Of Mosque Opponents

From the Washington Times:

Rep. Pelosi calls for investigation of WTC mosque opposition

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called for an investigation of those who are protesting the building of the Ground Zero Mosque on Tuesday. She told San Francisco’s KCBS radio:

"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded," she said. "How is this being ginned up that here we are talking about Treasure Island, something we’ve been working on for decades, something of great interest to our community as we go forward to an election about the future of our country and two of the first three questions are about a zoning issue in New York City." 

Calls to investigate the funding for those proposing the $100 million "Cordoba House" have fallen on deaf ears, though, as New York’s Mayor Mike Bloomberg has described such an investigation as "un-American." …

Of course, as the article notes, Mr. Bloomberg and others have been apoplectic at the suggestion that someone should investigate the funding behind the Cordoba House project.

Still, Ms. Pelosi obviously hopes someone will find some Swatiskaas in the closet somewhere. After all, no one can ever oppose the left or their allies without having some nefarious motive.

You can hear a more clear version the audio portion of the exchange here.

    SanFranGranNan, honey, come here, let me let you in on a secret – We The People – you know the great unwashed masses in the fly over states, who work for a living – don’t get funding from anyone. That is a Dem ploy to keep the ‘activists’ beholden to them. We The People/Tea Party People/Conservatives protest because we love America and the Constitution (and hey, it is also a First Amendment right) and because building a mosque at Ground Zero is wrong, offensive and totally tone deaf to anyone who ‘claims’ to want to reach out and be part of the community (what community, that is a office/manufacturing area, not residential).

    And exactly what the h*!# is this botox moron talking about Treasure Island – are all the Dems/Liberals morons or drug users – as they are just so insane, I’d hate to think that the truly mentally ill are in charge of America.

      Just found out from another site that the Treasure Island comment was in regard to a San Fran scheme to turn a former Navy base into an ecotopia – can we all say cosmic fail!!!

      But what does that pie-in-the-sky bs scheme have to do with muslims building a mosque at Ground Zero? There is no comparison other than the utter vapid stupidity of both – and of course the zillions in taxpayer money to be flushed down the toilet on both schemes. And of course the zillions to be garnered by li(e)brals due to both schemes.

      And the warp speed destruction of America.

      My bad, they both do seem to be comparable – bs scams aimed at destroying America and supported by li(e)brals.

    When this waste of skin and space loses her frequent fliers pass, we need to haul her ass into court and try her for treason.

    Hey Nancy? Americans (sane ones) want to know’ “Where in the hell is the money coming from to build this Pig mosque? Why must you cast your pearls before swine? Have you always been a bitch or did you have to work at it?”

    Apparatchik talk-show host Bill Press keeps the GZM issue in perspective, via Doug Powers @ Malkin’s site:

    “In a slap at both President Lincoln and Dr. King, not to mention the American people, the National Park Service has given Glenn Beck permission to hold a Tea Party rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28 – 47 years to the day after Martin Luther King gave his magnificent ‘I Have A Dream’ speech’… If you ask me, that’s like granting al Qaeda permission to hold a rally on September 11 – at Ground Zero.”

    Damn racist/insensitive wingnut hypocrits.

    You can’t make this stuff up.

    I never get tired of watching the monkeys.

  6. untrainable says:

    And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.

    First a question. Who are those that you are joining? Must be those straw people that Oblamer is always talking about. Because I hadn’t heard of anyone on THIS particular crazy train ’till princess P opened her pie hole.

    Now the simple answer. No one is funding them. Unlike Democrats, real Americans don’t have to be paid to be pissed off. They are protesting because they don’t like that slap in the face that a ground zero mosque would be.

    • Melly says:

      I watched the local news here in NY yesterday and a reporter randominly asked pedestrians near Ground Zero what they thought of the mosque and every person said it was “too close,” “this is sacred land,” “location, location, location.” Those pedestrians will be rounded up by Stretch Pelosi for questioning later today.

  7. oldpuppydixie says:

    If I were REEEEELY cynical, I might get the idea San Fran Nan was actually hoping to intimidate into inaction those opposed to the efforts of Islamofascist terrorists to poke a thumb blithely into the eye of the American public. But of course NO democrat politician would consider abusing the power and authority of their elected office to do such a thing.

    • tranquil.night says:

      If you were really cynical, you’d think Nancy was commanded to sound like a lunatic on television to make the Moron publicly seem thoughtful and tolerant by comparison.

      I’m siding with plain old bat-turd crazy on this one though.

  8. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Keep talkin’ Nance. The evidence is mounting. See you in the hearings.

  9. NoNeoCommies says:

    Hey Nazi Pelosi!
    How about investigating all those screamers in the street that support you and you whacked out agenda?
    Who is financing the professional protest movement?
    Who organizes them?
    Who feeds them, transports them, trains and equips them?

  10. Natural Born Citizen says:

    How about an investigation as to why our government is using our tax dollars to rebuild mosques overseas in oil rich Muslim country’s? How about an investigation of the Muslim advisors within our government and there ties to terrorists? Lets investigate how Sharia law is incompatable with the US Constitution. Or where a waiter got 4.5M to buy the building where the GZM is planned to be at. I want to know why did we send 400M to Palestine when they are being run by a terrorist organization?

    • proreason says:

      Those bucks stop with the Moron.

      So there will never be an investigation.

      He’s historic you know. It’s inconceivable that he could do anything wrong.

  11. JohnMG says:

    Well, folks. It would seem that, despite all the triumphs of modern medicine, we still haven’t conquered veneral disease. Nancy Pelosi is living(?) proof. There is no other excuse for the insipid verbal drool issuing from her mouth.

    As one of my black laborer friends might say, “Bitch be all ate up.”

  12. BigOil says:

    January 20, 2011 – the day this miracle of modern botox will be kicked to the backbench – should be declared a national holiday.

    “I didn’t come in here ginned up to spend $800 billion.” Barack Obama

    Ginned Up for First Obama Press Conference
    By Roger Catlin
    February 9, 2009

    The occasion is Barack Obama’s first prime time press conference and he’s off and pontificating…

    It’s the familiar East Room setting but something is different. Not just the president -… On the other, if Talky McTalkerson doesn’t reign it in, he’s going to lose that prime time audience,…

    There was a moment, well before someone asked about A-Rod (what, no question about the mother of octuplets?) that caught my fancy. When he said: “I didn’t come in here ginned up to spend $800 billion.”

    Ginned up? Wow, what a great phrase to resurrect. A little of the old internets research and I had this usage from an 1881 Helena Independent about different phrases meaning drunken:

    In New England when a man is drunk he is “on a tool,” in Chicago he is “on a hoorah,” in St Louis he “has a dash too much up his nose,”…

    There are a number of prominent themes in Treasure Island. All of the traditional conflict themes of man vs. man, man vs. nature, and man vs. himself are present. Man vs….

    One of the principal conflicts in Treasure for Island is between the virtue of advanced civilization versus the indiscipline of man in his savage state….
    principal heroes, stand for virtues such as loyalty, truthfulness, thrift, discipline, religious faith, and temperance (especially with alcohol).

    The pirates suffer from drunkenness, impiety, and mutual betrayal, and tend to seize immediate gratification…. the heroes’ virtues of temperance, thrift, and deferred gratification, but only to aid him in achieving his ends, for which he is also willing to lie, betray, and murder….

    Temperance versus drunkenness
    Religion versus irreligion
    Thrift versus profligacy

    …The conflict of thrift versus profligacy runs through much of the book. Most of the pirates are unable to hold on to their money;…


    Pelosi the Pirate all ginned up.
