I bet the RW freaks loved seeing Speaker Pelosi talk about being
upset about the tone of politicla discourse. She spoke of a time in the 1970s where there was alot of violence, and she looked concerned, and some tv hosts said "afraid." I'm sure the nutcase extremists out there loved the idea of making a Democrat "afraid."

2. You know, we have to stop worrying about what these freaks think.
Not knocking your post, but Pelosi really had two choice here. Do what she did or stay silent.

I'm glad she's not staying silent.

6. Absolutely!
How can you ignore the right wing's virtual death threats. The rhetoric is disgusting and they cheer on these angry violent freaks when they carry guns in public at Presidential speeches. This is sick and the GOP just smiles and nods their heads as their media spokespeople encourage the rage and violence.

8. I don't mean to dis her. It was more of a comment about them
probably delighting in upsetting people. They are rude, ruthless people. They love what fear can do to promote their agenda. I'm glad, over all, that she spoke up.

3. It probably was the Moscone/Milk slayings. They were
killed by one nutcase,though,so I don't really know what she feared.

5. Wow, you are so right about that. I can't believe I didn't make the connection.
I trust her on assessing this "mood" because she was there.
That goes for President Carter, too.

9. She spoke of Harvey Milk. I didn't mean to dis her
comments. I was really thinking about how violent and controlling these RWers are, and how they love using fear to get what they want.
