Democrats around the country have cowered to the mob mentality and violent eruptions in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing. Democrats need these anti-government anarchists and socialists to vote for them, so they either keep their mouths shut or in some cases, even praise them, such as the case with the Seattle mayor at the inception of the CHAZ zone.
Then you have a whole other category of dangerous leadership: Pelosi. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) literally shrugged at the mention of violent protesters. “People will do what they do,” Pelosi answered when asked about the destruction of statues such as that of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore.
Pelosi followed up with, “I don’t even have my grandmother’s earrings.” Come again? That comment is reminiscent of a Biden gaffe. People can’t argue with you if they are left scratching their heads trying to figure out what on earth you’re talking about.
As the discussion continued around rioters tearing down historical figures Pelosi added more nonsensical opinions. “Heroic figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln would ‘want us to be talking about the future,’ saying that when young people visit the Capitol she tells them, ‘Everything we do here is about you” reported the Washington Free Beacon.
For Pelosi to tell young people “everything we do here is about you” feeds into the dangerous psychology that they run the country regardless of their merit or job experience. It feeds into the notion that with absolutely zero understanding of how taxes, national security, and government works, they nonetheless hold the power.
Pelosi’s words are exactly why the riots and protests turned deadly. The young thugs that violently took to the streets believe they are the “future” and believe the government fears and needs them, so they hold the power. Pelosi and her cohorts allowing the violence and destruction of property and telling them everything they do is about them confirms just that.
