As the Occupy Wall Street crowd welcomes some mischievous new members, I can't help but wonder: Where's our old friend Nancy Pelosi these days?
As you'll recall, Ms. Pelosi had the following to say about the tea party during the health care debate:
(As conservatives have tried to point out in the past, supporters of Lyndon LaRouche trying to piggy-back on popularity are not members of the tea party movement.)
That was then, this is now:
In a move that may redefine the term “strange bedfellows,” the American Nazi Party issued an official endorsement of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement on Sunday afternoon. The announcement put the organization, a self-described “National Socialist” political party, in company with the Socialist Party USA, which explained its own support for the left-wing protesters in a nationwide conference call last Tuesday night, crediting organized labor with the protests’ strength and sophistication to date.
In its statement on Sunday, the Westland, Mich.-based Nazi party wrote that the Occupy Wall Street protests are “TAYLOR [sic] MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN [White Nationalists] who are serious about DOING SOMETHING.”
“I urgently URGE all of you,” the statement’s unnamed author added, “to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the ‘JEW BANKER’ influence — DON’T wear anything marking you as an ‘evil racist’ — and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!”
When the tea party protested ObamaCare, Pelosi imagined barbarous swastika-yielding "astroturf" organizers, yet now we have actual card-carrying Nazis hopping on board with a confirmed astroturf movement that the President of the United States has personally endorsed and Democrats don't have a problem with it?
