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.
POLL: 49% of Americans Want ANTIFA Designated as a Terrorist Organization
Americans have had enough of ANTIFA.
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports suggests that American are far less supportive of the mob violence and race riots that have exploded in the nation’s cities than the media seems to assume, with the latter demanding strict obedience and conformity with the demands expressed by George Floyd protestors.
The poll, released Wednesday, shows a strong plurality just short of an outright majority of Americans in support of legally designating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization. 30% of survey respondents disagree, while 22% say they’re undecided. The survey polled more than 1,000 Americans through telephone and online mediums.
Other findings from the poll suggest Americans aren’t on board with the nationwide wave of riot-related violence that has followed George Floyd’s death. 40% of Americans say that the violence that has erupted in multiple cities following Floyd’s death is “legitimate outrage.” 49% disagree, describing the violence as opportunism on the part of criminals taking advantage of the situation.
A majority of Democrats (58%) see the mob violence occurring in cities as a legitimate expression of outrage.
Just 10% of poll respondents say that they think a majority of police officers are racist, although 31% of Americans think law enforcement has responded too aggressively to the riots. 28% believe the authorities haven’t been aggressive enough. 47% of Americans view the law enforcement response as “just right,” indicating the anti-police sentiment acted upon by rioters and protestors is broadly unpopular with the general public.
69% of American likely voters describe politicians raising racial issues as self-serving- “seeking to get elected,” rather than solving real problems.
The poll indicates that there’s a strong silent majority of Americans opposed to the mass wave of racially motivated violence. Republicans eager to cowtow to the protestors’ demands need to consider the strong majority opposed to the chaotic phenomenon.
