When Code Pink Attacks
It's kind of hard to hear what is being said by the audience member because of all the yelling but you can make out
We supported Obama, we supported you, now 21 states are begging for money to help us save the community," a woman screamed at Pelosi.
"You have made your point," Pelosi said in an attempt to quiet the protesters.
An aide informed her that they are "throwing stuff."
Wonder if she still feels that dissent is patriotic and that protests are patriotic. Does that include those that involve throwing things?
When handfuls of Code Pink ladies disrupted congressional hearings or speeches by Bush administration officials, it was taken as evidence that the administration's policies were unpopular, and that the thinking parts of the populace were rising up in true democratic fashion.
Just curious Nancy, when Code Pink disrupts your meeting and throw things are they rising up against you and your administration? Is this evidence that the administrations policies are unpopular?
