Pelosi worried reform rhetoric could lead to violence

Los Angeles Times, September 18, 2009

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she worries that the protests over President Obama's healthcare legislation may resemble the anti-gay rhetoric of the late 1970s in San Francisco, which culminated in the assassination of two of her hometown's political leaders. Pelosi, responding to a question about anti-Obama sentiment, said partisans on all sides have the right to voice their opinions, but she has concerns about some of the language that is being used.
