When House Permanent Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was in Florida last week, she was heckled, called a communist (most are much smarter than the average California Democrat) and cursed. Her office complained about the “Ugliness rearing its head.” That’s almost as rich as George Soros.
Protestors referred to the Congresswomen as a “piece of sh-t,” and called her a “fu-king communist.” Such language is disgraceful. But for Pelosi to complain about it is gold-plated, diamond-encrusted hypocrisy.
Congress-creature Maxine Waters (Gollum’s evil twin) told the Democrats’ mob to “get in the faces” of Trump officials, to keep them from eating out. Former Attorney General Eric Holder said when Republicans go low, “we kick them.” Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary’s 2016 running mate, urged the mob to “fight them (Republicans) in the streets.” Clinton herself swore off civility until the Democrats are back in power. May her incivility continue indefinitely.
Republican campaign workers have been assaulted. Senators who voted to confirm Kavanaugh have received death threats. In an attempt to intimidate Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, on Friday, a thug in a Louisville restaurant slammed his fist on their table so hard that the dishes rattled.
And Pelosi’s office has the chutzpah to complain about bad language? Compared to the stuff her party has pulled throughout this campaign, it’s jaywalking – versus vehicular homicide.
