Pelosi Gets Ripped for Tone Deaf ‘Thank You’ to George Floyd

Even the mainstream media savaged Madam Speaker.

Some of our elected officials really cannot read the room, and Nancy Pelosi seems to be one of them.

The House Speaker has been at the forefront of the racial issues that our nation is facing today, which is all fine and good.  This is America, after all, and it certainly doesn’t appear as though we’re seeing liberty and justice for all right now.

But the issue is in how Pelosi portrays her feelings on the subject that has many in America cringing.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is facing intense backlash after she thanked George Floyd for “sacrificing your life for justice” Tuesday following the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges.

Speaking alongside the Congressional Black Caucus shortly after the verdict was handed down, the top House Democrat looked to the sky and said, “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice.

“For being there to call out to your mom,” Pelosi went on. “How heartbreaking was that? [To] call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’

“But because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice,” the speaker added.

The callous nature of Pelosi’s “gratitude” was off-putting for many, even within the mainstream media sphere.

“Nancy Pelosi thanks George Floyd for being murdered,” Huffington Post editor Philip Lewis summed up.

“What in the actual f,” New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz reacted.

“Ummm… he didn’t sacrifice his life… he was brutally, horrifically murdered. What the hell is this,” Guardian writer Hannah Parkinson tweeted.

“Sacrifice implies he had a choice,” LA Times reporter Melissa Evans similarly wrote.

“Oh, that is very bad. Very, very no,” GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe expressed.

“real [W]hite person wearing kente cloth energy on this quote,” progressive commentator Hasan Piker wrote.

That last jab was in reference to another social justice stunt that Pelosi took heat for:

Unvaccinated Students Corralled into Separate Pen at LA High School

This is just WILD.

Published

on

There have long been some very serious concerns about the way in which vaccinated people would treat unvaccinated folks here in the United States, and it’s a sad reality that some of even the more bizarre predictions have come true.

We’ve seen the unvaccinated among us ostracized, belittled, discriminated against, and segregated against, often with the backing of the government itself.

Now, at a charter school in Los Angeles, an incredibly poignant and stomach-turning facet of this prejudice has been put on display.

Parents and students at a Los Angeles charter school have filed a lawsuit to stop a vaccine mandate that allegedly prevented unvaccinated children from attending class.

The children said they felt “segregated” and “discriminated against.”

“Female students were segregated, harassed, and threatened with suspension just for trying to participate in their classes, and we will prove in court that this is unjust and unlawful,” Sharon McKeeman, founder of Let Them Breathe, a nonprofit organization that is representing the students and parents in a lawsuit against the school, told Fox News Digital on Sunday.

The situation was a dramatic one:

Let Them Breathe shared videos of the students protesting after New West Charter School allegedly refused to let them in when school reopened on Jan. 18, 2022. The organization claimed that the students were segregated “behind barriers.”

“We’re being refused of the right to attend school,” one student claims in a video. “We feel segregated and discriminated against,” adds another.

News of the situation was soon traveling throughout the Twitterverse.

The school has suggested that there are only six students who’ve refused to be vaccinated.

Liberal Host Says ‘I’m Over COVID’, Pushes Disobedience

We didn’t have this on our 2022 bingo card.

Published

on

Freud has often been summed up with the phrase, “sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar”.  But one liberal comedian now wants to sum up COVID with, “sometimes, enough is just enough“.

Left-leaning comedian and television host Bill Maher this week lashed out against lingering COVID protocols, even going so far as to glorify the idea of disobedience.

Bill Maher has said that he’s “over Covid” and that doctors shouldn’t tell people “just do what we say” in relation to how to handle the pandemic.

The comedian and HBO talk show host told Deadline in an interview that “I feel like Covid is still the dominant issue of our lives right now and it should not be anymore”.

The 66-year-old said he was “never scared” of Covid-19, but that he was “always scared of the reaction to it”.

And then…

“As this has played out that only proved to be more true for me,” Mr Maher, who contracted the virus in May of last year, told Deadline. “I’m sure many people feel different, but that’s me. It was never that virulent a threat, I thought, to people who were in good health.”

“We should, of course, protect the vulnerable, but it was mostly a disease of the very old, which every disease is a threat to, and people who have comorbidities, which mostly is due to lifestyle,” he added.

His harshest quips followed:

“I didn’t want the first vaccine,” he said. “We should not treat people unfairly who want to allow their own immune system to take care of the situation. But okay, I took one for the team.”

He went on to say that the medical establishment “don’t know a lot about anything”.

“We still don’t understand too much about how the human body works,” Mr Maher said. “So, don’t sit there in your white coat and tell me ‘just do what we say’. When have we ever been wrong? A lot is my answer. A lot. They drilled mercury into my teeth when I was a child. Now, of course, we don’t do that anymore, but do you really think in 50 years people will look back and say, ‘oh, yeah, we had it all figured out in 2022?’ No, they will be appalled at things we’re doing right now”.

Maher’s shift on COVID has been predated by some downright moderate discussions from the longtime liberal, leading many to wonder if he’s headed toward the dead center of the American political morass.
