(Tea Party PAC) – For well over 100 days we’ve all watched radical left-wing groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa nearly destroy our beautiful country by lighting major cities on fire, looting local businesses, and doing all sorts of other awful things while Democratic leadership at local, state, and the federal level wouldn’t do a darn thing about it.
Heck, most of these “leaders” wouldn’t even come out and condemn the unlawful actions of these groups during speeches, afraid that doing so would alienate them from a voter block they need to beat Trump in November. Wouldn’t want their racism is to be put on such bold display now would we?
Well, now, all of the sudden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is coming out and condemning the actions of alleged “protesters,” months after the turmoil began. What caused this change of heart? Probably the fact the left is getting demolished in the polls over their inaction to bring order to the chaos.
Pelosi is the voice of the party, which has spent months running interference for the lawless actions of Black Lives Matter mob, insisting that they’re “peaceful protesters,” but the speaker made an abrupt about-face on Thursday, denouncing the rioting that has resulted in well over a billion dollars in damage.
The San Francisco Democrat who once likened federal agents to “stormtroopers” rose on the House floor to give voice to an “important statement of our American values.”
“We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy,” she said. “That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting. They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”
Hypocrisy knows no bounds in Washington, DC.
Pelosi mentioning Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who spoke against rioting right after CNN’s Don Lemon sounded a warning that it was having a negative impact on polling, is a strong clue that it’s hurting their chances in November.
“I’m very proud that Joe Biden has presented the clarity of that,” she said, going on to claim a new poll is showing “the American people support congressional Democrats over President Trump in terms of dealing with the issue of crime in our country for all of their misrepresentations.”
President Trump’s campaign has been going with the “law and order” messaging ever since the carnage in the streets started up, and it’s obviously making a connection with the vast majority of American people.
In fact, a recently conducted Rasmussen Reports poll reveals that 59 percent of likely U.S. voters feel there is a war on police happening right now. The same number support a Blue Lives Matter law that would make it a hate crime to attack police, which would intensify the current penalties for such assaults.
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters are concerned that deadly attacks on the police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety where they live.
A whopping 84% of black voters polled are concerned about a shortage of cops on the streets.
More from Rasmussen:
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters are concerned that deadly attacks on the police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety where they live, with 44% who are Very Concerned. Thirty percent (30%) don’t share that concern, but that includes only 14% who are Not At All Concerned.
Whites (63%) are bigger supporters of Blue Lives Matter laws than blacks (52%) and other minority voters (49%). But blacks (84%) are a lot more concerned than whites (66%) and other minorities (70%) about a potential shortage of police officers in their community.
Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy ripped Pelosi during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Story.”
“You can be 100% behind law and order and law enforcement, or you can be, in her case, 100 days behind them,” Gowdy said.
Here’s the thing. Pelosi doesn’t actually care about the damage being done to people’s homes and businesses at the hands of angry rioters and looters. All that matters to her is winning this election and getting rid of Trump. The radical left wants to get the plan to make American more socialist back on track. The president really messed that up for them.
This sort of condemnation of violence by protesters should’ve been done many moons ago. But this is what happens when playing politics outweighs human decency.
