House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is known for her inflammatory rhetoric attacking Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
But Nancy Pelosi stepped on a landmine that could cause major problems for her party.
Nancy Pelosi crossed a red line with this racist attack on a black Republican.
House Democrats passed a bill seizing control of policing in America.
Republicans rejected this federal power grab and instead South Carolina Republican Tim Scott offered up the Justice Act, which would reform police conduct without the federal government handcuffing law enforcement.
Instead of legislating and working toward a compromise, Democrats want to obstruct because they think they will run the White House and both chambers of Congress next year and can ram through a federal takeover of policing.
In a radio interview with CBS News, Pelosi explained the Democrats’ obstruction strategy.
“What’s the compromise? ‘Some chokeholds’? I don’t see what the compromise is. You know, ‘No racial profiling?’ Maybe ‘some’? So the point, Steve, is the following: They understand that there’s a need to get something done. The press has given them so much play for this bare leaves, unsalvageable piece of legislation, and then say, ‘Well, can’t you compromise with that?’ No, because it is — ‘no.’ And we are, ‘yes.’ It isn’t, ‘maybe,’” Pelosi began.
But then Pelosi drifted into a racist tangent.
The Speaker of the House attacked Scott – who is black and has been stopped on multiple occasions by the police – as being guilty in the murder of George Floyd.
“And so, in other words, for something to happen, they’re going to have to face the realities of police brutality, and the reality of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there are many, many good people in law enforcement, but not all, and that we have to address those concerns. So, when they admit that and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far, they were trying to get away with murder, actually. The murder of George Floyd,” Pelosi added.
This should have been a major scandal that reframed the debate on police reform.
But the Fake News Media will protect Pelosi and hope the American people never notice.
