Scarlet Lindsey | Civil Patriot
One thing’s for sure: No one needs to buy Nancy Pelosi any sandals once the weather warms up! She’s the queen of flip-flops. This woman has changed her mind so many times, of late, that we’re having trouble keeping up.
We can’t help but think back to her cranky comments to Trump after he called in the National Guard troops during the George Floyd riots. She was quite upset:
“I sent a letter to the President expressing concern about the increased militarization and lack of clarity that might increase chaos. By what authority do these National Guard people come in from other states?”
How odd, that just last week (on January 13th) she spoke these supportive and encouraging words to National Guard troops, which had been called to D.C. for her friend Joe Biden’s inauguration:
“I hope that the fact that you are here will be a deterrent to those who have come to undermine our Constitution. We want the message to be clear, that the Capitol, our Democracy, our Constitution are safe because of your patriotism.”
So, she’s all for bringing in the National Guard. . .or against it? She thinks they’re Patriots. . .or she thinks they’re a thorn in the flesh? It’s hard to tell.
Surely she wouldn’t flip-flop for political reasons, right?
Of course, there was that time, back in June of 2018, when she uttered these shocking, inciteful words after the violent and deadly BLM riots and lootings:
“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. And maybe there will be.”
We heard her loud and clear. She was all for the riots. She was all for the looting. It seemed she felt so strongly about them that she actually believed there should be uprisings “all over the country.” We were stunned to hear such a thing from the Speaker of the House. Shocked, really.
Compare those 2018 words with her response to what happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, where she referred to Republicans and the White House as “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state” and accused them of boosting “uprisings all over the country.”
Um. An uprising is an uprising. A riot is a riot. One is not worse than the other, or can you not see that?
Sometimes I want to say, “Make up your mind, girl! In 2018 you wanted uprisings all over the country. In 2021, (because it doesn’t suit your narrative), you don’t? Is that how this works?”
Pardon me for stating the obvious, but this flip-flopping attitude is shamefully hypocritical.
Speaking of comments Nancy has made in the past, what about that time, back in 2017, where she accused Republicans of hijacking the presidency?
On May 16th, 2017, she posted the following tweet:
Ack. She created quite the stir!
These days, however, people on The Left claim it’s immoral to believe an election might’ve been rigged, hijacked, or stolen. In fact, people who’ve made accusations like the one Nancy made back in 2017 have lost their social media accounts, their reputations, and even their jobs. Here’s what Nancy (recently) said about Trump supporters who questioned the integrity of our recent presidential election:
“They're engaged in an absurd circus right now, refusing to accept reality. Stop the circus and get to work on what really matters to the American people — their health and their economic security.”
Okay then. So, it’s okay for her to question an election’s integrity but not okay for us? Hypocrisy much?
Hey, speaking of flip-flops, here are a few more times Nancy has confused us:
Last month (in December 2020) she stated that a $600 stimulus check was a “significant” amount for working families. (Gee, thanks for the generosity.)
We remember. Of course, we also remember that video tour she gave of her California mansion with the freezer stocked full of high-end ice creams that the rest of us could never afford.
Oh, boy. We’re starting to smell some real hypocrisy here!
And what about this:
Back in 2011, when Obama was president, a payroll tax change made it possible for some working-class families to receive an extra $40. Nancy went on record stating how important that $40 was.
Jump ahead to Trump’s tax cuts. . .which she opposed.
So, she does. . .or doesn’t. . .think American families deserve a break? We’re confused.
And then there was that time she fought to keep the House from voting on Republican’s healthcare reforms.
Wasn’t she in favor of healthcare reforms when Obama was in office?
If one didn’t know any better, one might think Nancy was politically motivated, focused solely on her own team and no one else.
This would be an excellent time for Nancy to stop flip-flopping, once and for all. Be consistent, Speaker! Be true to the American people, not a political party. Get rid of the hypocrisy and you might just salvage your reputation.
A little consistency would go a long way in bringing a severely fractured country back together again. Isn’t that what you want, after all?
