House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats must have seen the polling that showed that even her own left is sour on the riots currently being perpetrated on the American people by the organization the Democrat Party is practically owned by at this point.
Black Lives Matter riots have cost billions of dollars in damage, ruined the lives of many black people, and not just in monetary ways either. Innocent people are dead. Little children have been killed as a result of the chaos and meyhem that Democrats not only stood silent about but flat out encouraged at times.
But now Pelosi, all smiles, standing in expensive clothes and a hairstyle that was given to her in a way that it’s illegal for many Californians to get, sat in a building behind guards with firearms and said what it’s taken Democrats far too long to say.
“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting. They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”

Pelosi enjoys a level of safety that many Americans don’t get and I don’t just mean in terms of being guarded by police and personal security. Pelosi enjoys a very thick bubble of ideological safety that prevents her from having to hear the cries and the objections of the peasantry. If her reaction to getting caught breaking the law in California while getting her hair done is any indication, then the amount of weight the people’s outrage has on her decisions is zero.
Unless polling says otherwise, your anger about something is worth about as much as the used needles that litter her district. Her shamelessness can thrive because her shame never has to see the light of day. Unless it’s a controlled environment, Pelosi will not invite a bunch of people to even come near her. She won’t run the risk of being questioned publicly. When she is, she acts indignantly.
How dare you question your queen?
It infuriates me that Pelosi can sit there in her red dress and, after months of silence, suddenly come forward and tell us that she thinks rioting is wrong and that those who do it should go to jail. This is the woman who said nothing after Ayanna Pressley literally called for “unrest in the streets.” The same woman who watched the riots unfold and told us that people were going to “do what they do” as if it was no big deal.
This woman does this because the aforementioned shame is somethign she’s never had to confront.
She should be made to.
She should stand before the families of David Dorn and Secoriea Turner and say it, then listen as they ask very real questions about why Pelosi didn’t reach this very obvious conclusion sooner. They should be able to ask her to her face why she sat back as her party made excuses for the rioters and cheered them on from the sidelines. They should be able to ask her why their family members had to die when all it would have taken from the very beginning is the Democrat party urging law and order.
She shouldn’t have to stop there either. The people who have lost their businesses and their jobs because those rioters “seeking justice” were goaded by the left that Pelosi leads should be able to sit down with her for a few hours.
Pelosi should, on camera, be forced to answer questions like a real leader instead of hiding behind her privilege as a Democrat leader. The same privilege that allows her to adopt a stance that is the complete opposite of the one she had not moments before.
She won’t ever put herself into a position where this is necessary. Pelosi is a fraud and a coward.
