I know exactly what Nancy Pelosi means when she says the Planned Parenthood videos aren’t real. Liberals have criticized the videos because the footage was obtained through sneaky means, and because the footage was edited. The footage was edited for brevity’s sake. Liberals are more than welcome to watch all 17 hours if they want to. But we all know that they won’t, because this isn’t about finding the truth about Planned Parenthood’s practices. Liberals are angry, because they’ve been exposed. They don’t want to see any footage. They want the videos to be covered up and the Center for Medical Progress investigated, prosecuted and convicted of…something. They’ll make something up if they have to.
Nancy Pelosi admitted that she hasn’t even seen the Planned Parenthood videos, but somehow she knows it’s all fake. CNS News reported:
“I don’t stipulate that these videos are real,” Pelosi told “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper on Sunday. “Now, I haven’t seen–I’ve seen some news reports of it, but I also know that it’s not real, and you can create any reality that you want.”
Pelosi said the people who videotaped the interviews with Planned Parenthood officials “should be investigated as to how they obtained those and doctored those and then had them be accepted as something that was an indictment against Planned Parenthood, because that’s not true.”
Tapper asked Pelosi is she’s is disappointed in Planned Parenthood leaders for being “fooled” into letting the hidden cameras into their clinics.
“I think that Planned Parenthood has excellent leadership,” Pelosi replied. “Cecile Richards, the president, is a spectacular leader in our country. I do think that Planned Parenthood is many people that consists of many state organizations and some of them may be not as, how should I say it, aware of the assault that was going to be made on them, and perhaps they spoke in a way that could be misinterpreted.”
It looks like Pelosi’s created her own reality while obstinately sticking her head in the sand. A reality where Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry are these benevolent public services.
