Fear-Monger Nancy Pelosi and Civilization as We Know It

Dressed like an elderly, upscale biker chick in a leather jacket that she accessorized with $10,000 Tahitian pearls, Nancy Pelosi recently reemerged.  This time the House Minority Leader made an incoherent appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

After sharing the apocalyptic prophesy with atheist Maher that if Republicans retake the Senate “civilization is doomed,” the woman whose political party is currently in the process of dooming civilization uttered the following load of rubbish:  “Fear is a motivator, and we…” – as in Democrats – “are not fear mongers.”

So Democrats, who have singlehandedly decimated any shred of hope for America’s future, see themselves as “messengers of hope,” and according to Nancy, “messengers of hope” are what Democrats will “continue to be.”

Oh please!  When Nancy Pelosi says “hope,” does she mean “Hope and Change”-style hope?  Because if that’s what the aging septuagenarian is peddling, God help us all.

It’s funny to hear Nancy Pelosi project onto Republicans the very thing she is, which is a fear peddler.

This is the woman who, in the run-up to the failed stimulus bill, sounded an alarm to warn Americans that “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

Besides being the person who, at the time, was second in line to the presidency adding another 200 million people to America’s census figures, Pelosi the Prophet apparently didn’t foresee at the time that six years after Obama’s “shovel ready” job-creating fiasco was passed, 92 million people, or approximately half of America’s working-age population, would be not working.

Not to mention the fear mongering that drove the rhetoric prior to the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act.  And speaking of healthcare reform, what exactly was the woman with the oversized gavel selling when she said that if the Republican’s “Protect Life Act” prevented Obamacare abortion funding pregnant ‘women [would] die on the floor?’

It was also Nancy Pelosi, San Francisco’s very own harbinger of hope, who warned America that if the House passed a bill that extended a federal pay freeze, it would “undermine the dignity” of a job that is, quite frankly, anything but dignified.

Speaking of federal workers, during the impending government shutdown of 2013 Ms. Nancy warned there would be a “strong negative” response from Democrats if Republicans didn’t comply with – you guessed it – Democrats.

Then, after the ruling that employers with religious objections could elect not to offer birth control as part of a company’s health care package, it was none other than anti-fear-mongering Nancy who warned Americans that they should “be afraid” of the Supreme Court.

Devout Roman Catholic that she is, Nancy Pelosi even felt it was incumbent upon her to write San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone to ask him not to attend the Washington D.C. pro-tradition March for Marriage event this past June 14th.  Always the upbeat optimist, Nancy described the gathering as “venom masquerading as virtue.”

How Foot-in-Mouth Pelosi can say that Democrats are not “fear mongers” in the same breath as saying that “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate” does illustrate a level of cluelessness on Nancy’s part that is quite impressive.

But then on second thought, maybe Pelosi’s statement was actually positive, because after what Mrs. Pelosi and her Capitol Hill cronies have done to “civilization as we know it, a Republican Senate jeopardizing the current state of Democrat-crafted civilization is truly a hopeful prospect.

Pelosi Warns: Protect Life and Women Die

It seems that whenever the subject of government-subsidized abortion is broached, prominent Democrats notoriously change the subject. The ploy is to appeal to the emotions of those who refuse to monetarily participate in an unending killing spree by insisting that without tax dollars to fund infanticide, women will die.

What the left fails to mention is that since the enactment of Roe v. Wade, millions upon millions of female fetuses have been routinely executed because of the self-centered choices of mothers who care more about their own lives than the lives of their children.

Statistically, since 1973, 60 million fetuses have died, but as of 2008, only 362 (or 0.0006%) of the 60 million women submitting themselves willingly to a legal abortion have died.

Therein resides the dichotomy of liberalism.  The left attempts to defend unbridled insanity by appealing to selfish emotion that, if analyzed, defies logic and reason. Thus Democrats, headed up by the most pro-abortion president in the history of America, remain determined to force Americans who disagree with slaughtering the unborn to pay for something they morally and spiritually repudiate.

With that in mind, the President is anxious to display his unwavering commitment to abortion rights.   Apparently, Obama is planning to veto the Protect Life Act, calling it “a divisive, politically motivated piece of legislation that unnecessarily restricts the private insurance choices that women and their families have today.” In other words, Obama heartily approves of abortion and believes no law should be passed that allows people who disapprove of the barbarism to be excused from paying for it.

Despite predictable Democratic scare tactics, the Republican bill merely attempts to close the door Obamacare opened that would allow government to finance abortion, something the Hyde Amendment has prevented for decades.

Detractors of the Protect Life Act argue that the bill threatens the rights of women and prevents them from getting a healthcare policy that covers killing the unborn even on the rare occasions when an abortion is medically necessary to preserve the life of the mother.

Echoing the president, liberal California congressman Henry Waxman described the bill as “an assault on women’s reproductive health and their constitutional rights to choose when to bear children.”  Clearly, Waxman is convinced that pro-life Americans should be coerced into being accomplices to murder by bankrolling women who would rather make the “healthy” reproductive choice to dispose of the child growing within their womb.

Predictably, Nancy Pelosi takes it a step further and employs the ultimate in liberal illogical logic.  According to Mrs. Pelosi, Republicans who support a bill that merely says women should pay for their own abortions “will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene.”

Nancy’s words are reminiscent of what actually does happen to infants born alive in botched abortions. Barack Obama voted against the Born Alive Act because he believes that providing warmth, oxygen and hydration for a child who refuses to cooperate and die “burdens the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.”

Unlike Obama voting against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, doctors attest that the Protect Life Bill “does not change or alter the practice of medicine or the responsibility of physicians in any way.” However, in order to convince the hesitant to reject the bill, Pelosi clings to the twisted argument that if the funding of killing stops, women die.

According to the histrionic words of Nancy Pelosi, if Americans don’t agree to fund the butchery of unborn human beings who are the ones being tossed into red biohazard bags on the floor, the lives of the mothers who choose to place them there are at risk.

Thus, the logic of liberals continues to defy the reasoning of thinking, feeling human beings.  Democrats like Obama, Pelosi and Waxman are convinced that financing the death of the innocent is a valiant endeavor because by using everyone’s tax dollars to finance abortion, Americans are doing the moral thing and saving the lives of the selfish.
