Pelosi Backpedals on #Occupy Movement
Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s penchant for hypocritical hyperbole is once again manifesting itself. Her latest example is regarding the #Occupy movement.
Just a few short months ago, before the #Occupy movement exposed itself as a bunch of entitlement-driven neo-Communist criminals, Pelosi (and other Democrats) wholly embraced the squatters’ rag-tag movement.
This was Pelosi then:
Despite the fact that unions are now funding, coordinating, aiding and abetting the #Occupy movement–the same unions that fund, coordinate, aid and abet the Democratic Party apparatchik–Pelosi now claims that she and her fellow Democrats are not “connected” to the neo-Com movement.
This is Pelosi now:
Of course, this is not the first time Pelosi has talked out of both sides of her mouth–not by a long shot.
Pelosi, who habitually dips her beak into union coffers, has long “supported” unions in their quest to effectively eliminate workers’ right to vote on unionization. Meanwhile, Pelosi and her husband own a vineyard, a resort, as well as partial ownership in a restaurant chain, all of which are union-free.
Note: Pelosi’s “good for thee, but not for me” hypocrisy does make one wonder if she was the invisible hand behind California’s card-check veto last year and, if so, whether the United Farm Workers have realized it yet.
