Nancy Pelosi Schedules Democratic Hearing on ‘Race and Justice’

Susan Ferrechio, Washington Examiner, July 24, 2013

House Democrats will hold a hearing next week to weigh in on the controversy swirling around the recent verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced “A Conversation on Race and Justice” on July 30 on Capitol Hill.

According to a Pelosi aide, the hearing will not focus solely on the trial, which acquitted Zimmerman of murder charges in the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, but will be a “broader conversation.”

Pelosi will preside over the hearing, which will include Democrats from the party’s Steering and Policy Committee.

The scheduled panelists are Southern Poverty Law Center founder Morris Dees, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and civil rights lawyer Maya Wiley, president of the Center for Social Inclusion.

    Conversation…or echo chamber? I’m already sick to my stomach.

  • Manaphy

    Nancy Pelosi is nothing more than a “post turtle”:

    “While treating a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer in Mississippi, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as the president.The old farmer said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”.Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘post turtle’ was.The old farmer said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.The farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he serves no purpose being up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of idiot put him up there to begin with.”

    Above paragraph also applies to Nancy Pelosi.

      Farmers are smarter then most people think 🙂

      • Sick of it

        Definitely…farmers built this country and supported the Constitution after the city boys got tired of it.

      • Romulus

        I know many local farmers who are doing very well, yet still live very humbly.They are salt of the earth Americans. Just like the iconic American cowboys and ranchers of the West. The old school fisherman of the east are a dying breed. Rural and heartland America (what’s left) still contains the classic elements of American culture.

    • Puggg

      Here’s another problem with her.

      2010 wiped out a lot of supposedly moderate Democrats and replaced them with Republicans. So among the smaller group that are House Democrats, they are on average even more whackjob left wingers than they were when she was actually Speaker of a Democrat majority that included some moderates. They say that in the land of the blind, all you need is one eye to be king. If Nancy Pelosi wants to remain the leader of the Democrats in the House, she has to satisfy her kook back benchers.

  • I would love to hear just one person at that meeting say something like, “So, what’s this about a flash mob robbery right here in D.C. over the weekend? Didn’t one of the employees get stabbed by a thick stick?”

  • Luca

    I can hear the results of this hearing already as they will be following a carefully crafted script and pretend they are brainstorming.

    “Discrimination, blah-blah-blah, racial profiling, blah-blah-blah, Trayvon Martin, blah-blah-blah, too many guns, blah-blah-blah, We must get rid of Stand Your Ground laws, blah-blah-blah. Meeting adjourned.”

    • Romulus

      In a nutshell!!

  • bigone4u

    Commisar-ette Pelosi plans to put “White America” on trial. The verdict will be “Guilty.” Just another Obamanation show trial that whites should mock and ridicule.

  • YourMOMA

    We should have a conversation and race and justice. Let’s start by addressing black crime in our nation and the lack of attention media has given to blacks murdering white women and children. Also, let us look into how many black families with extensive criminal histories receive government handouts.

    • Ed_NY

      They are not interested in a conversation, they are only interested in spewing their BS about White racism. They aren’t interested in the truth because they can’t handle the truth.

      • sbuffalonative

        They know the truth. The actively work to suppress it.

      • HamletsGhost

        When liberals say “conversation”, they really mean “lecture”. They’ll do the lecturing, and everyone else had better just shut up and listen..

  • Spartacus

    Excellent idea ! Will this be part of the discussion ?

    • Athling

      And the latest …

      • gemjunior

        I don’t recognize these victims. Who are they?

        • Spartacus

          Amy Gibbins and her 5-year old son. The groid raped her then bashed her head until she killed her. Then he set the house on fire. Her son burned alive…

    • IKantunderstand

      Oh please, you know what this is? Violent encouragement to accept your new position on the bottom rung of this “society”. Join the Cheerios generation, or DIE.

    • Athling

      And the latest … mother and child raped/murdered.

  • sbuffalonative

    …but will be a “broader conversation.”

    Translation: Whites are hopelessly racist.

  • JohnEngelman

    If there is going to be a conversation about race, let’s hear from white victims of black crime.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Sorry, they can’t fit tens of millions inside the capitol.

      • JohnEngelman

        They only need to hear from several of us. It is really disgusting to hear black men complain that whites hurt their feelings by avoiding them. I would rather have my feelings hurt than have to go to the Emergency Room again.

        • I’m sorry about what I once said; I guess they really did beat you up. My wife has more-or-less tamed me, but in jail or prison I let all the bad hatred out to play at any provocation. I fought my case out on a no-bond hold for 17 months, and it changed me quite a bit. I’ve also been home for ten years, and that has changed me as well.

  • IKantunderstand

    Is Pelosi transgendered? Butt ugly as only a dude turning themselves into a female facsimile can be. Transbrained? Clearly, the brain residing in Pelosi’s cranium, was harvested by a crazed scientist from a nincompoop, but deemed superior to the original. I seriously can’t take this anymore. Why does “she” always get re-elected? Why do any of them? (Please imagine a gnashing of teeth, hair pulling, and unearthly guttural sounds of despair). Could someone tell me a joke? I mean a real one. I’m sick of the joke our Congress has become.

    • cancerous bananna

      Knock knock
      Who’s there?

        O.K. Funnier than Congress. What’s the difference between an Ethiopian and a pair of Levis? There’s only one fly on a pair of Levis.

        • Puggg

          Good one, but I bet a lot of those pictures with black African starving kids with gobs of flies around them photoshop in a lot of the flies.

    • Puggg

      She lives in San Francisco. So of course she’s going to be reelected constantly. I bet by San Francisco’s standards, she’s somewhat conservative.

      • IKantunderstand

        I thought “she” was re-elected because she was transgendered. I mean, isn’t that automatically a vote in S.F.? Get your genitals scrambled, and say “hi” to your new Senator. Run on the “D” ticket. “D” for debauchery.

    • Nancy Pelosi doing this because she isn’t House Speaker anymore, and hates it. I’ve been eating my heart out during ten years of relative freedom, as I can’t shoot rifles anymore, but starting a family helped.

      Pelosi has had 30 or 40 face-lifts too many. She never blinks because her face is stretched so tight she can’t. Since she’s actually 73 (DOB March 26, 1940), she’s kidding only herself.

  • Truthseeker

    To diversity cultists, there’s only one permissible viewpoint. It’s so obviously correct it’s not even up for debate, but for some reason there are a bunch of unenlightened rubes who see things differently, as well as these curious specimens who actually begin to disagree with that viewpoint the more life experience they get. How do they not see the wonders of diversity that are so plain-as-day? The mind boggles.

  • ncpride

    Just another White bashing orgy (what’s new?) where the $PLC will tell a captive audience how dangerous White gun owners are, and how they battle the Klan daily, and how the government must do MORE to keep the country safe from the rampant racism, and terrorist groups (aka, returning soldiers) of White Americans.

    • Luca

      According to Piglosi and crew, Whites have a lot of nerve defending themselves from the feral diversity savages who invade homes, play knockout king, rape everything insight, burglarize, rob and terrorize the civilized people.

      That’s okay Nancy, I’ll keep my nerve, my guns and my life.

    • gemjunior

      What’s that? Did someone say White-Bashing Orgy? I just saw yet another television commercial for a brand new Magic Negro film. After the last one about Jackie Robinson, where the commercial was shown so often you almost couldn’t watch TV, a new one with Forrest Whitaker as a waiter at the White House or something. The commercial has plenty of scenes with mean white people, negro bashing, hoses & dogs, and of course the Men in White Sheets. Unreal, the beating of this dead horse is starting, finally, to cause people to notice that these “memorials” to the victimhood of blacks are becoming ubiquitous because there NEEDS to be some excuse for the fact that they bring nothing to the table, and they in fact suck. I just thought of it because your post reminded me of how often this drivel is shown in an attempt to keep whites in their rightful role as the most really really worst people ever ever to walk the world. Oh, the white guilt, I’m suffering….

      • ncpride

        They certainly have been pumping out those evil White movies one after the other, that’s for sure. I have a theory about that….I think ‘those’ in charge are starting to see ‘negro fatigue’ more and more often in Whites….Just look at most comment sections on articles about race and immigration. They could all be AmRen readers. I know there are still a lot of unaware Whites because of the White guilt we are taught K-12, but I really think ‘they’ are beginning to worry that it’s falling apart, and we have had enough after 50 + years of this nonsense.

        • gemjunior

          I agree with you that we’ve had enough and ‘they’ have to be noticing that it’s getting old and whites’ hearts are starting to harden… I just don’t understand why they would not retreat a bit to palaver about what’s the next move. See how weird and how abnormal and unreadable these psycho’s are? It makes no sense. The only thing that makes sense is whites waking up and fighting back with town hall meetings and a true-honest-to-God Tea Party that they really will understand which is money or financial losses. Huge losses, boycotts, etc.

      • WR_the_realist

        Why are you still watching television? Seriously, if you care about your family, your race, and your own life, throw the damn thing out.

  • libertarian1234

    It will amount to no more than a whine and blame fest.

    The black and white weenie reaction to the GZ case shows more than anything else that integration is an absolute failure.

    Let’s split the country up into political/racial areas peacefully, because if we don’t it will split apart via civil conflict anyway.
    Multiculturalism has been a failed concept and will always be unworkable.

    • Sick of it

      A political division would achieve both at this point in time.

    • HamletsGhost

      Why do I keep hearing about dividing the country up and giving some of it to the blacks? The WHOLE country belongs to us, and if we ever get into power, the solution is to ship all blacks back to the mutha–lan.

      Blacks were brought over here to do farm labor. We have machines that can do that now. Their dubiously valued services are no longer required. They can go now.

  • A Freespeechzone

    WHAT conversation?

    This is merely going to be another one-sided demand by ignorant blacks and politicians that want to appease them, that GZ be charged, prosecuted and convicted on fabricated ‘evidence’.

    There is no ‘conversation’–only appeasement for political purposes at the expense of MOST of us.

    • Athling

      Yes. If they really wanted to have a conversation about race, JT would have been invited to give the white perspective. Instead, we get the usual one-sided version from the race merchants.

  • Nathanwartooth

    “The scheduled panelists are Southern Poverty Law Center founder Morris Dees, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and civil rights lawyer Maya Wiley, president of the Center for Social Inclusion.”

    Well we already know what they are going to say. “It’s all YTs fault, YT is the devil, etc etc”.

  • Athling

    Absolutely stunning. This nation-wide, media-induced, circus over the Zimmerman/Martin case. It is stunning because scores of whites have been brutally murdered by blacks in the past few months and … nothing from the media. Nothing from the race hustlers. Nothing from Obama (who they admittedly do not look like).

    Where are our spokesmen? Where is the national focus on our problems? Will blacks ever be made to look at the ravaging effects they are having on society?

    Check out these latest white victims of black brutality, if you can stomach it. Look at at the 22 year-old woman who was raped amd murdered along with her 5-year old son here:

    http(:)//topconservativenews(.)com/

    Heaven forbid the black masses be informed of what their people are engaged in DAILY!

    • Vonhauer

      I would love to fill Big Sis Pelosi’s email box with hundreds of photos of the white murder victims who died at the hands of blacks.

      There is no perspective here. The MSM will not allow it. They treat blacks as helpless children and keep their numerous pathologies concealed from the masses.

      The MSM is evil.

      • David Ashton

        Many of them are like children – in adult bodies.

        • MBlanc46

          Tantrum-throwing children in adult bodies.

    • gemjunior

      That is an outrage, I hadn’t heard of it. It’s time to strike back against these savages. Inhuman, really. Is this human? It’s subhuman if you ask me.

      “Where are our spokesmen? Where is the national focus on our problems? Will blacks ever be made to look at the ravaging effects they are having on society?”
      They will never allow this to happen. They can’t. If anyone ever saw JT on a panel with these people he would be destroying them left right and center, and none of the ptb want white Americans to see the truth. That would be the end for them. It would be great if we could take over the airwaves and play JTs videos over and over. Deprogramming of the white masses.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Black-on-White assaults, rapes and murders are all over and everywhere — yet at this stupid meeting, with Morris Dees, no less, nothing but White racism will be discussed. Pelosi, Dees, Robinson, obama and holder are the REAL racists.

        Meanwhile…

        Tell everyone you know, post these images everywhere, spread the word about black-on-White crime. We’re the only ones who will.

        Yes, the media are evil and the worst enemy Whites have. They condone, encourage, support — and even gloat about — the genocide of the White Race.

        I can’t think of a greater evil than promoting the elimination of an entire race of people — but that’s what the government, media and schools sanction.

        Bon

      That’s why WE must spread the word as much as possible and tell everyone we know.

      • Athling

        Thanks Bon, that’s a better photo than I found.

      • sbuffalonative

        These are great photographs to post and share.

        However, people have to be very careful when they make them. The ‘man’s’ name is spelled wrong. It’s Derek, not Dereck.

        It’s that kind of small mistake that our enemies use to dismiss our concerns and make us appear ignorant.

        Also, by spelling the name wrong, it makes it difficult to perform a successful internet search.

        Keep the photos coming but please be sure the facts are indisputable.

    Everything that goes on in Washington is nothing but a dog and pony show. The useless pukes must come up with some excuse to collect those huge salaries for doing nothing so they dream up these meetings. Corruption is the name of all the games and we taxpayers are just the ones who pay for everything. Geez. It’s just sickening! There’s no conversation about race and justice. These evil creeps will be talking about themselves and how wonderful they are.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Looks like the REAL racists are going to hold a meeting –not a one of them lives anywhere near blacks.

    I can already predict the outcome of this meeting: Jim Crow laws are still in effect, Whites are irredeemably racist and if not for the government, SPLC and ACLU, we Whites would be wearing long white robes or goose stepping in the streets. There is a long, long way to go until blacks achieve parity with Whites and more government money must be dedicated to help them “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.”

    So predictable.

    Morris Dees already has dollar signs in his eyes for a new round of fundraising.

    I wish the media would cease referring to the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Morris Dees and so on as “civil rights” advocates. A true civil rights advocate speaks for the rights of all. Throughout the hype over the George Zimmerman case, few seem to realize that George Zimmerman too is entitled to civil rights protection. ( innocent until proven guilty)
