    “The senior Democratic lawmaker told a crowd in Iowa on Saturday that any negative or ambivalent feelings about US politics likely stems from actors “inside and outside” the country who have “poisoned” social media.

    [They use social media to] undermine the mindset of what is America. America is optimistic, entrepreneurial, about the American dream and things can be better. And what they do with their poison is discourage – ‘nobody is paying attention to you, it’s no use for you to vote.’”

    The fact of the matter is (to paraphrase the feckless Joe Biden)  that social media is what will pull this country back from the brink of complete disaster, if it isn’t too late. Pelosi is well past her ‘best by’ date.

    And Nancy Pelosi has been poisoning the working class with neo liberal legislation for her entire career.

    The right to assemble is supposedly guaranteed. Once again, the leaders of the Democratic Party argue against Democracy.

    Make no mistake. There is no slippery slope here. Just a cliff. Nancy is going after people like us. The DNC hires consulting firms to provide unverifiable evidence, and then that “evidence” targets people like us. Remember that “list” of Russian influenced sites the corporate press published? JPR was on that list. Who paid for the creation of that list? Where did that list come from?

    Nancy’s number one priority is to purge the Democratic Party of dissent. Otherwise, she would be specifically mentioning Alex Jones or Breitbart.

      @mick063 If we had gotten support from the Russian government, we’d have a functional reply tree and all sorts of other nifty technological improvements by now.

      But noooooo…damned Russians are never around when you need ’em.

    I blame social media too. A lot of it is good but this the only website I feel safe. For example I never see the words Bernie bro here.

    The REAL reason Pelosi hates social media is because we can all talk to each other.    We can look shit up.  We can see the lies.  An open internet must really be annoying, if not downright hateful, to her and her buddies.  Not as much opportunity to do dirty deeds in the dark (certainly not dirt cheap, though!), and more fact-checking.  The horror!

    I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.

      Absolutely. Open Internet, peer-to-peer information network for global peer-to-peer dialogue which enable genuine equality is mortal threat to authoritarian ruling class and class society. The rule of lie.

      This p2p social media truth about us and our relations is not always pretty. Truth is not always pretty. But facing this truth allows us also to evolve and come better. Progress.

    Sure, sure Nancy……like you use the theater of press conferences to pacify the people into believing you + Dems are doing the people’s business but when one checks the last 30+ years, they’ll find that they’re no further ahead……Wash, Rinse, SPIN, Repeat…..

    This woman is SO corrupt. The people and the electorate are just ‘meddlesome outsiders’ to her, exactly as Edward Bernays described them. Her words are blatantly inconsistent with the principles of democracy.

    I blame Nancy Pelosi—and Chuck Schumer and their generational mentors,the Clintons—for America’s ills.

    Elijah Cummings is dead, but Nancy Pelosi is still flapping her ugly neocon face…

      I remember as a kid growing up that Rock n Roll would be the ruin of the current generation. Well that generation is now in charge and…. Well maybe they were correct back then.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.

      Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…

    Social media is a cesspool, especially Twitter. But Pelosi’s problem with social media isn’t the format itself, it’s that she can’t control what’s said.
