During a recent interview in New York City with Paul Krugman, a New York Times op-ed columnist and noted leftist, Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) verbally signed-off on the on-going wave of violence and intimidation being conducted against Trump supporters around the country.
Pelosi said: “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country. And if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it.”
This one remarkable comment perfectly illustrates the hubris, hypocrisy, inanity and soullessness of today’s Democratic Party. She says the Democrats are “respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country” immediately before adding, “And if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it.”
You are not respecting the dignity and worth of every person in the country, only the ones who happen to agree with you. The 50 percent or so of your countrymen that don’t share your view can be harassed and assaulted with impunity. So be it! Perhaps Pelosi meant to say that Democrats are “respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country illegally.” Might have just forgot a word. She forgets a lot of things lately.
As for being there for the people’s “financial security,” you’ve previously dismissed the $1,000 bonuses numerous businesses gave out to their employees due to the Trump tax cuts as “crumbs.”
Democrats don’t like the term “collateral damage” when it’s applied to war. Like everything else, however, they’ll use it shamelessly when they think it benefits them. In this case the term could refer to those who’ve been baselessly smeared, made the subject of lies and fake news, those who have been physically assaulted by the leftist mobs, or those like Brett Kavanaugh who’ve had their lives destroyed because they stood in the way of leftist’s power, however innocently. Or perhaps to the millions of babies aborted for the convenience of adults. Adults who progressives know will vote for them. That is the opposite of “respecting the dignity and worth of every person.”
Let’s hope “collateral damage” is what Democrats experience on November 6th.
So be it.
