The left has nothing but good things to say about the Occupy Wall St. protests. A day after the president justified their movement, and three days after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke did the same, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave the protesters a glowing endorsement.
The Weekly Standard explains:
During a press conference Thursday afternoon, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi praised those participating in the “Occupy Wall Street” protests. ”God bless them,” Pelosi said, “for their spontaneity. It’s independent … it’s young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused. And it’s going to be effective.”
“The message of the protesters is a message for the establishment everyplace,” said the House Democrats’ leader. “No longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street.”
Here’s the video:
Pelosi was reportedly not asked about any of the illegal actions of the protests — actions that have led to over 700 arrests.
