Pelosi sets the stage for a crackdown on free speech

I actually agree with what Pelosi *says* - we do have to take responsibility for our actions and our words. For example, when she calls citizens expressing their constitutional right to free speech "unamerican". But listen carefully to what she's saying now. She's talking about BALANCING FREE SPEECH and SAFETY. By BALANCE she means STIFLING. She is setting the stage for a crackdown on the voices of dissent by claiming we incite violence. This ignores the 1.5 million "912" protest which had not a single arrest. The other fork of their attack is the ridiculous and insulting claim that all who oppose Obama's policies are racist. It's a big nation. There are violent and racist nuts on both sides. But to paint that label on all those who disagree with the radical direction Washington has taken is dangerous. We need to speak out now before they decide that we must be silenced in the name of "safety".
