More Crushing of UnAmerican Dissent

Be careful what you say... because if Nan Pelosi doesn't like it, she'll sic the awesome investigative power of the federal government on you:

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." (h/t Kristinn)

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."

This all reminds me of when the Republicans called for a Congressional investigation into who was backing all those violent anti-war protesters.

Ooops. My bad - that never happened, did it? That was protected speech.

They've been working on Cordoba House for *decades*? Someone has gone 'way too long without her meds.

Don't worry about the gummint spooks investigating you, though -- they'll all be investigating Thought Crimes in Kenya:

"However, the most telling part of the message [from Biden] was that the US was ready to use its sophisticated intelligence network to collect information on some key political leaders suspected to be saying 'Yes' during the day while at night they are in the 'No' camp."

What's that, Biden's third trip to Kenya in less than two years?

That's why Republicans lose and are weak. Cause they don't launch offensive strikes at where the Left is weak.

All those poor Dem incumbents were already facing an ugly ten weeks before the midterms -- this is all they needed.

Tex, they're counting on passing legislation after they get kicked out, but before they vacate the premises.

It's a good plan. Sort of like a deadman's switch. It don't matter if Dem guy is dead. It'll trigger anyways.

BillT, you misinterpreted Queen Nans speech. They have been working on stealing Treasure Island for over 10 years. Used to be a great Navy base in the bay.

Personally, Nan could go to the other island - Alcatraz - and take charge there. I would be happier.
