Nancy Pelosi Slammed By the Left?

It may be time for Pelosi to think about retirement.

Published

Nancy Pelosi can always be counted on for the pure hyperbolic, pitch-perfect identity politics drama. This is a woman who called ending Obamacare “the end of the world” and, just last week defended the “spark of divinity” that can be found in all people, including MS-13 members (but not, presumably, unborn children).

So you would have expected her to be first in Congress’ long line to finger wag at the NFL for requiring their players to stand or remain in the locker room for the National Anthem.

So when she gave an uncharacteristically benign comment on the new policy, the far-left lashed out.

Pelosi gave her remarks during a CNN town hall event on Thursday, The Blaze reports.

“I would be more okay with it if they had consulted with the players,” Pelosi responded, “I don’t think the players agreed to this. This is the owners, and, by the way, it’s the owners who would be fined.”

“I love the national anthem,” she explained. “I’m from Baltimore. That’s where it was written during the War of 1812. So I’m very possessive of it. Sometimes people say, ‘Maybe we should change the national anthem.’ No.”

“I love the national anthem. I love the flag,” she continued (I know, I’m as shocked as you are). “And I love the First Amendment, and I’ll just leave it at that.”

Tsk, tsk, Nancy.

Eugene Scott quickly lashed out in a piece penned in The Washington Post, accusing Nancy of being a “coward” and using the incident as an example as to why Democrats fail to court the black millennial vote.

He found he was in good company on Twitter:

One commentator on the website Bossip pretty much just scathingly bashed the congresswoman.

“Do you see this broad walking that tightrope?” they wrote. “She should quit her gig with the government and go on the road with Cirque Du Soleil.”

“She can’t even fix her mouth to just say the undeniable truth, that the rule is a bunch of bullsh**t. But will without doubt put out her wrinkly hand and ask for our vote.”

“Coward,” they concluded.

Buttigieg Says Supply Chain Disaster Ends When Everyone is Vaccinated

How do you figure, Pete?!

Published

on

And just like that, the federal government made it sound like it was holding the economy hostage until we all get vaccinated.

The Biden administration is in a worrisome place in the late months of 2021, as a number of compounding crises continue to mount, and without any true direction coming from the White House.

The latest issue to rear its ugly head has comes to us in the form of massive, continued disruptions to the supply chain.

In a recent appearance on CNN, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg suggested that this latest catastrophe, which threatens to rise price of goods across the board in the United States and effect our ability to shop during the holidays, would end only after “everyone” is vaccinated.

Buttigieg said, “Well, look, there are going to be disruptions and shocks to the system as long as the pandemic continues. But we know some of the steps that we’re taking are going to make a difference. Remember, there are three factors here: It’s about supply, it’s about demand, and it’s about the pandemic. And those three factors are interacting.”

And then…

[…] “Look, the bottom line is that everything we’re experiencing right now, from issues impacting the supply chain, to issues impacting the ability to travel right now, they’re all driven by a pandemic that we need to put behind us. The pandemic ends when we get everybody vaccinated. It is our best tool to get that done, and it’s one of the reasons why these vaccine requirements are so important and they work.”

Buttigieg has been recently criticized after remaining on paternity leave as the supply chain crisis exploded.  This latest statement, in which he appears to blame the unvaccinated for the supply chain worries, is going to give critics a whole lot more to work with.
