Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pandered to the far-left by making the absurd claim that protestors who marched on Capitol Hill had chosen their “whiteness over democracy.”
Pelosi’s comments came during an online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday. According to the comments obtained by The Hill, Pelosi’s racial comments tied the coronavirus-related deaths among black people to the Capitol breach.
“When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all,” the California Democrat said, adding, “The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’”
It’s worth nothing that Pelosi wants Americans to forget that she was one of the most fierce critics of the President’s decision to close off travel from China in an effort to halt the spread of the virus – labeling it as “un-American.” At the time, Pelosi also led a massive gathering in San Francisco’s Chinatown in an attempt to teach the president a lesson.
“I thought it was going to be an epiphany for those who were in opposition of our democracy to see the light,” Pelosi continued Saturday, referencing the Feast of the Epiphany. “Instead, it was an epiphany for the world to see that there are people in our country, led by this President, for the moment, who have chosen their whiteness over democracy. That’s what this is about.”
“Not only the complicity, the instigation of the President of the United States, must and will be addressed,” the House Speaker added. “It’s only a number of days now before we inaugurate a new President.”
Following Capitol protests, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris similarly passed on a potential opportunity to unify, opting instead for racially-charged language.
“You can’t tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Biden said, according to The Washington Post. “We all know that is true. And it is totally unacceptable. Totally unacceptable. The American people saw it in plain view.”
Harris, in a video posted to Twitter, talked of a “justice system that is experienced differently whether you’re white or black,” in relation to the Capitol breach.
The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro blasted Biden and Harris over their divisive remarks.
“Biden and Harris could have provided a moment of unity: everyone of good conscience deplores the riot in the Capitol. Instead, both decided to parrot the woke bulls*** that the police treated the rioters with kid gloves, and would have murdered them en masse were they BLM (Black Lives Matter),” he wrote.
“That’s categorical nonsense,” Shapiro continued. “Over the summer, BLM rioters ran roughshod through NYC, DC, LA, Chicago, and other major cities — and streets were renamed after BLM, police departments defunded, corporate brands cheered them, and politicians marched in solidarity.”
A reported five people died during the chaos on Wednesday; three perished from “medical emergencies,” one woman was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer, and a Capitol Officer succumbed to injuries sustained during the Capitol attack.
