Nancy Pelosi heckled on NSA Snowden


Friend of the liberal cause Nancy Pelosi was booed by progressive activists Saturday for defending President Obama on the NSA’s surveillance programs and suggesting that alleged leaker Edward Snowden broke the law. Isn't that ironic how one of the biggest criminals (insider trading) in the House is calling out others for breaking the law?

Speaking at a question and answer session at this year’s Netroots Nation conference, Pelosi said it’s unfair to equate Obama and former President George W. Bush on the issue of surveillance just because Obama copied exactly what Bush was doing and took it 10 steps further.

As Pelosi was saying the country needs a “balance” between security and privacy, Marc Perkel, a 57-year-old activist from Gilroy, Calif., started shouting at Pelosi during her answer and was escorted out of the room. “It’s not a balance. It’s not constitutional!” he yelled. “No secret laws!”

Others in the room began shouting as well, saying things like “Leave him alone!” or “That’s what a police state looks like right there!”

Some of the audio in the video is hard to hear, but it sure is nice to see progressives cannibalizing each other. Watch below:
