Pelosi's Signal

Princess Pelosi signaled "her" crowd a couple of weeks ago that Health Care "Reform" protesters were seen carrying swastikas at town hall meetings. While the conservative masses scratched their heads in disbelief because the few swastikas seen had lines drawn through them indicating "no", the presstitutes and the politicians knew which plays were coming up.

Since then the people who are protesting more government control, i.e. socialism, have repeatedly been labeled as Nazi's (the National Socialist party headed by Hitler). Posters of Obama with a Hitler moustache have appeared on the scene, giving Obama supporters more ammunition for disparaging any distaste for Obamacare. And surprise, surprise, a few days after Rep. David Scott's *disastrous town hall meeting hit the national news, a black swastika was painted on a sign in front of his office. And, since both Scott and Obama are black, Nazi symbols and allusions have morphed into racist allusions.

Kyle Ann Shriver reminds us this morning that such activity is a favorite trick from Saul Alinksy's playbook. Her article quotes from a biography of Alinsky:
" the spring of 1972, at Tulane University...students asked Alinsky to help plan a protest of a scheduled speech by George H. W. Bush, then U.S. representative to the United Nations - a speech likely to include a defense of the Nixon administration's Vietnam War policies. The students told Alinsky they were thinking about picketing or disrupting Bush's address. That's the wrong approach, he rejoined, not very creative - and besides causing a disruption might get them thrown out of school. He told them, instead, to go to hear the speech dressed as members of the Ku Klux Klan, and whenever Bush said something in defense of the Vietnam War, they should cheer and wave placards reading, ‘The KKK supports Bush.' And that is what they did, with very successful, attention-getting results."

*Scott was filmed shouting down a town hall attendee claiming that he was not from his district and that if he wished to discuss health care, he should call his office for an appointment. Those who fact checked, discovered that the protester, a physician, was from Scott's district and had tried to call him several times, but never could get an appointment. Most national news stories have omitted these salient facts, just as they ignored the "Bushitler" signs and pictures.
