FLASHBACK: Nancy Pelosi Felt Very Differently About Immigrant Child Detainment in 2014

Published

As if the stunning hypocrisy from the left wasn’t already mind-numbing enough, someone has dug up Nancy Pelosi’s comments after visiting a child detainment facility in 2014, and they certainly have not aged well.

The Daily Wire reports that in June of 2014, after a visit to a border detainment facility, Pelosi struck a very different tone about the children detained there than what we’re hearing from her party this week.

Of course, this isn’t that surprising considering it was Democrats who wanted children to be detained separately from their parents to begin with, and, big shocker, the exact same thing was happening under the Obama administration’s watch as well.

Here’s the story:

In another case of “you just can’t make this stuff up” (see the fake news “child separated from mother” photo for another example), Pelosi told the press on June 28, 2014, after visiting a jam-packed illegal immigrant detention center, that what “some view as a crisis,” she viewed as “an opportunity” to continue to show our humanity. Rather than “politicizing” the situation and decrying the state of the detained children, as she and her colleagues have done in increasingly extreme terms over the last week, she said what she witnessed at the detention center was “dazzling.”

“What we just saw was so stunning,” she said. “If you believe, as we do, that every child, every person, has a spark of divinity in them and is therefore worthy of respect, what we saw in those rooms was dazzling – a sparkling array of God’s children, worthy of respect. So we have to use, as was said this morning, the crisis that some view as a crisis – and it does have crisis qualities – as an opportunity to show who we are as Americans: that we do respect people for their dignity and their worth; that we know how to get the job done, that relates to, again stopping trafficking. Because that’s one of the fundamentals that will reinforce the law.”

While we should move families as quickly as possible, she said, we must make sure to obey the immigration laws and not “rush” solutions.

“We have the law that established the Department of Homeland Security. We have the Flores decision. So the balance that we’re trying to create is to move these kids, these young people, these families as quickly as possible into another setting. We have to do it in a way that meets certain standards – and not, in our rush, not do the best we can for them,” she said.

Good grief, someone get this woman copies of her own comments! We understand that Pelosi probably doesn’t remember making these comments, but you think someone on her staff might have kept track.

But what does it really matter, anyway? An elephant may never forget, but apparently, donkeys have incredibly short-term memories.

Maxine Waters Escapes Censure, Goes on MSNBC to Gloat

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Waters has learned her lesson.

Maxine Waters is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to her vision of the role of violence in the political process. Back in 2018, the California Congresswoman told a group of constituents that they should confront staffers for then-President Donald Trump. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” Then, just days ahead of the jury’s deliberations in the Derek Chauvin trial, Waters again suggested that Americans should be “more confrontational” regarding the case. This comment drew widespread criticism from her colleagues in Congress, and Maxine was soon facing a censure by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Now that this effort to admonish Waters has failed, the longtime Democrat seemed to take a victory lap on MSNBC. On MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” Tuesday, Waters knocked the censure efforts led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The vote to table McCarthy’s censure resolution was 216-210 and split along party lines. “Of course, I’m criticized all the time, and of course, the Republicans make a target of me, but as you know, I am passionate on these issues,” Waters told host Joy Reid. “I’m so sorry that it causes pain oftentimes with my colleagues. Many times they’re in these districts where they are frightened, where they have a lot of racism, where they haven’t moved to the point that they can have a decent conversation about these issues and sometimes it’s very difficult for them. “But they stood up with me today,” she added. “They put…
