House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a sick, sick woman who says sick, sick things.
But she gets away with saying them because she’s from a tiny district in San Francisco where a moronic left-wing majority will continue to reelect her 10 years after she passes away.
She’s also dangerous because she has an unlimited national platform with which to spew some of the vilest, venomous, dishonest things about her Republican opponents.
A short history lesson.
Remember when former President Trump characterized the mainstream media as “enemies of the state?” They lost their stuff on that one.
Then-New York Magazine national affairs editor Gabriel Sherman warned it was 'full-on dictator speak.'
'The language of an aspiring tyrant,' Atlanticcontributor and dean of John Hopkins's School of Advanced International Studies Eliot Cohen tweeted. 'And no, not a joke, and not an exaggeration, and not a thought spasm from a disordered intellect.'
Nearly every head at CNN almost spontaneously combusted.
'I think it's a little bit dangerous, when you start — as the president of the United States, the most important person in the free world — to describe us as the 'enemy of the American people,'' Ryan Lizza, then with the New Yorker, stated regarding Trump’s characterization. 'There are a lot of people who are not stable out there, and when they see a president that they respect and admire calling a certain segment of the population 'the enemy,' it can encourage someone to do something stupid.'
And so forth.
But this week, the acerbic Pelosi actually said Republicans in Congress were the “enemy” of all Americans. And the very same press hasn’t said squat about it.
'We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And, sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States,' that gaslighting so-and-so said in August.
She said something very similar this past week, as The Associated Press noted:
Lawmakers face threats of violence from an 'enemy' within Congress, and more money is needed to protect them, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, a startling acknowledgment of escalating internal tensions over safety since this month's Capitol attack by supporters of former President Donald Trump.
The California Democrat's remarks came as the acting chief of the Capitol Police said separately that 'vast improvements' are needed to protect the Capitol and adjacent office buildings, including permanent fencing. Such barricades have ringed the complex since the deadly Jan. 6 riot, but many lawmakers have long resisted giving the nation's symbol of democracy the look of a besieged compound, and leaders were noncommittal about the idea.
First things first: As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi is in charge of Capitol security. Therefore, any lapses in security on Jan. 6 WERE HER FAULT. She is responsible.
Beyond that, this kind of sick exploitation did get a member of Congress shot: Steve Scalise of Louisiana, in the summer of 2017. A deranged supporter of the Senate’s resident commie, Bernie Sanders, was let to believe by his hero from Vermont that Republicans were going to take away his health care (a complete lie). So he came to a baseball diamond early one morning while Republican lawmakers were practicing for their annual softball game against Democrats and he opened fire on them, nearly killing dozens.
This kind of rhetoric from Pelosi and her Marxist cadres in the House and Senate will result in violence again. Count on it.
And when it happens, the Democrat majority will use the incident they caused as an excuse to steal what liberties and rights we have remaining (but they’ll start Republicans and Trump supporters).
Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a National Guard officer and MP, knows this — and she’s speaking out against her previous party leader.
“This kind of broad, inflammatory rhetoric is like throwing a match into the tinderbox,” Gabbard said of Pelosi’s “enemy” within comments in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.
“Isn’t this also inciting? If you think there is someone among the Republican caucus who’s actively plotting the murder of Nancy Pelosi or other members of Congress, that could then bring violence upon those individuals,” Ingraham said.
“That’s really the issue here. If this is a criminal threat, let law enforcement deal with it,” Gabbard responded. “If there is no evidence of what she is talking about, and if it is not true, it is inciting further division and further harm potentially and further destroying the possibility of our country coming together.”
Gabbard challenged the speaker of the House, “This is why it’s so important for Nancy Pelosi – again if these accusations are baseless – she needs to apologize, not so much to her colleagues but really to the American people who right now, more than ever, need leadership coming from the speaker of the House, who represents all members of Congress and the American people to bring us together.”
We’ll just speculate here and now that Pelosi — and her party — are not interested in ‘bringing Americans together.’
She wants power, period.
