House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told a gathering at the 92nd Street Y in New York on Sunday that there may have to be “collateral damage” to those Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party agenda. …
In a long, rambling monologue, during which she stumbled on her words and appeared to lose her train of thought, Pelosi said:
We have to have total clarity about what we do, when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate … I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.
It is not clear what Pelosi meant by “collateral damage,” though Democrats have advocated ostracizing and even prosecuting those who do not share their views on climate change.
Compromise is not on the agenda. The left does not even listen anymore to the views of those they dismiss with their usual barrage of insults — racists, bigots, deniers, sexists, rapists, deplorables, Nazis, etc.
Look at it from their point of view. If they believe the insults they hurl, why would you speak or listen to such awful and ignorant people? The media bubble has a lot to answer for. Too many people believe the PC fantasies.
Pelosi is worth about $100m and lives in a very nice and exclusive part of San Francisco. Real leadership material with the interests of the common man in mind.
