Pelosi: "You Have to Balance the Free Speech Issues"
Here's an exciting conversation between Clinton apparatchik George Stephanopoulos and outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi which appears to be taking place in some alternate universe in which 9/11 never happened and we haven't been fighting a war against terrorism for a generation.
"Did you ever think you would be Speaker of the House, when our greatest national security threat, according to so many analysts, is domestic terror?" Stephanopoulos asked.
Even in an ADD political culture where no one remembers anything that happened last week, this is a bit much.
Most Islamic terrorist attacks in the past decade have been classified as "domestic terror".
Omar Mateen killed 49 people during the Pulse massacre. While he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda and ISIS, the incident was classified as domestic terrorism.
Mateen, like an entire generation of Islamic terrorists, was born in America to immigrant parents.
"There has to be vigilance," Pelosi, D-Calif., told ABC "This Week" anchor George Stephanopoulos. "People have to alert other authorities if they think that someone is on a path to domestic terrorism, to violence of any kind."
Exciting new idea. Except that CAIR and the Islamist allies of the Democrats spent a generation insisting just the opposite.
Does Pelosi's proposal apply to all terrorists, or does it exempt terrorists from her political faction?
"Obviously you have to balance the free speech issues," Pelosi said. "Freedom is so important to us but that freedom also carries public safety with it and we have to balance that."
So is Pelosi going to move to shut down Islamist incitement to commit acts of terrorism and the entire political wing of the Jihad which is by now deeply embedded among the Dems and starting to once again get its hooks into the GOP?
The California Democrat said her party in Congress is "of course trying to do something about gun violence"
Might want to tell Chicago gang bangers that.
