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.”

Pelosi was reportedly not asked about any of the illegal actions of the protests — actions that have led to over 700 arrests.
