House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is finally facing the social media wrath after encouraging lawlessness and mob rule around the country. She was criticized heavily when offering a dismissive statement on vandalizing and tearing down historical statues.
When Pelosi was asked about a statue of Columbus that was thrown into Baltimore harbor by protesters she responded, “I think that’s up to the communities to decide what statues that they want to see. If the community doesn’t want the statue there, the statue shouldn’t be there.” Quite the wishy-washy response we would expect from a Democrat.
She admits she is not the biggest fan of monuments, noting that she hasn’t even kept her grandmother’s earrings, and that she’s more interested in terms of what people have accomplished. She went on to say that the vandalism against the Columbus statue hasn’t diminished her pride in her Italian heritage.
Pelosi has remained completely dismissive in asking for a formal process where a community could be involved in the political process to tear down a statue. Of course she has because she has no solution. Democrats whine and whine about the problems, but are never the ones to offer up a viable solution. She might as well shrug her shoulders and say “people will do what they do.” Oh wait, she did actually say that.
Critics surfaced in the comments section after Pelosi’s video hit social media claiming that the House Speaker who runs the House of Representatives is encouraging mobs to tear down statues in our cities. It’s been pretty clear the last few weeks that Democrats stand with violent mobs.
Pelosi has failed to ignore the destructive mobs vandalizing statues and destroying public property. “There is a legal, civil process for putting up and removing statues. That is what makes us a democracy, not a violent anarchy,” replied Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.).
The left is encouraging lawlessness and mob rule. It’s time to hold those accountable to the law and not just letting it slide because it’s trending in the media to do so. Protesters have used the outrage of George Floyd’s death to justify public property destruction, looting stores, and ripping down all historical statues that don’t agree with their political narrative.
These left-wing politicians do not care about the destruction of America. There’s been no consent to the protesters roaming around cities that aren’t theirs and tearing down statues. There’s been no consent from the citizens for such actions. Zero morality and no moral compass from Pelosi. Politicians will only care when the rioters show up to their house.
