Speaker of the House Calls Health Care Protests “Un-American”

In the wake of citizen protests against the socialistic health care plan coming out of Congress, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi calls the objectors un-American.

From the LA Times:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, insisting at the start of a long and politically heated summer congressional recess that healthcare reform can be achieved this fall, today are calling the disruption of “town-hall” meetings by vocal protesters “simply un-American.”

So it’s un-American to question the government? I hate to break the news to the Speaker, but what is going on is very American.

We live in a republic designed to protect the minority, and exercise of our rights to free speech guaranteed by the First Amendment is an American thing to do, regardless of your political views.  

Maybe Pelosi’s scared of the inevitable R3VOLUTION??
