Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are hoping to ride the Black Lives Matter movement to victory in November.
But the passions of the mob are causing Democrats to make major mistakes.
Nancy Pelosi used one word to describe police that proves she lost her mind.
One of the major focal points of any proposed police reform legislation or executive order by President Trump is the chokehold.
After a police officer killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck, banning the chokehold became a rallying cry for protestors.
President Trump is expected to sign an executive order on Tuesday that will instruct the Justice Department to identify groups to provide accreditation to local police departments on de-escalation tactics that would be contingent on banning the chokehold unless an officer’s life was in danger.
Senate Republicans led by Tim Scott are expected to introduce legislation this week that also significantly curtails the use of chokeholds.
In an interview with fake news CNN, Nancy Pelosi expressed confidence Republicans would ban chokeholds.
But she crossed the line by saying police who used chokeholds were engaging in a “lynching.”
“I can’t imagine they wouldn’t have a ban on chokeholds. Let’s get reasonable. A chokehold is a lynching. That’s strangulation. It’s a lynching. I think that is almost like the lowest common denominator, but again I will leave it up to my negotiators, because as you know in a negotiation, it’s not what’s in or out, it’s the sum total of the different impact that the legislation will have in justice and policing,” Pelosi began.
“I think that the legislation for my members, from what I have heard them say, does it have a chokehold ban? That’s one of the basic questions that people ask. Look at what we’re talking about here. People who have been so — just had such injustice in terms of policing and the lives of so many people in our country. Let’s do the best we can, not the minimum that we can in this. This is about justice. It’s about redressing past grievances. It’s about, let’s see what we can do. I mean, chokeholds? Am I missing something here?” Pelosi added.
Pelosi’s comments that cops that use chokeholds are “lynching” blacks is dangerous rhetoric that will only fuel violence and anarchy in American streets.
The Speaker knows the rioters in the streets want to defund the police.
Democrats know that is a political loser so they throw rhetorical red meat about the police in hopes of winning them to their side in November.
