Pelosi: If There is ‘Collateral Damage’ to Political Opponents ‘So Be It’



Another high-ranking Democrat had hateful words for political opponents during a conversation with the New York Times’ Paul Krugman.

“We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in the interview.

She was making a Machiavellian argument for liberal policies, essentially saying that the means by which leftist ends are accomplished are justifiable.

According to Free Beacon, Krugman asked Pelosi about “common ground” immediately after her response.

Pelosi’s rhetoric deserves scrutiny, coming at a time when leftists have become increasingly violent. Numerous leaders of the Democratic party, including Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) have called for the harassment of GOP lawmakers and supporters of President Donald J. Trump.
