Liberals like to claim they possess the high moral ground in the battle for the future of America, but it seems with each passing day — particularly since Trump won the presidency — all they do is prove the opposite is true.
It’s rather difficult to take claims of “inclusivity” and “tolerance” seriously when angry protesters take to the streets, destroy private property, and shoot pepper spray in people’s faces, because they’ve lost an election,
What’s worse, this sort of immaturity isn’t reserved for the grown-ups in diapers we call college students, it’s also flowing freely from the mouths of leftists in Congress.
The most recent example of this syndrome comes from none other than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who decided to take an opportunity during a press conference to call Trump’s foremost political adviser, Steve Bannon, a “white supremacist.”
The Hill reports:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed Stephen Bannon on Thursday, saying President Trump’s senior adviser is a racist who has no business sitting on the National Security Council (NSC).
“It’s a stunning thing that a white supremacist, Bannon, would be a permanent member of the National Security Council,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol.
Bannon, a former executive with Breitbart News, is a senior adviser to the president.
Trump reorganized the NSC last week to regularly include Bannon, a former executive for Breitbart News, at meetings of the group’s principals committee. At the same time, he removed the director of national intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from the panel. Those figures have instead been asked to participate only during meetings on “issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise.”
“What’s making America less safe is to have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council as a permanent member while the chairman of the joint chiefs and the director of national intelligence are told, ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you. You’re no longer permanent members,’” Pelosi said.
This isn’t the first time Pelosi has lobbed some jabs at Bannon, feebly attempting to throw a haymaker in his direction back in November.
Pelosi apparently tried to sway Vice President Mike Pence to get Trump to drop Bannon, painting him up as a white nationalist.
In other words, Pelosi is thoroughly convinced that Bannon is a full-fledged, card carrying member of the racist club. You know, the same establishment the left thinks we all belong to if we dare support limitations on immigration and desire secure borders.
The truth of the matter is, plenty of people continue to stand up for Bannon’s character and it doesn’t appear there’s been any evidence to support such allegations.
Pelosi and her buddies on the left still haven’t learned their most valuable lesson from the victory Trump secured in November: Americans are tired of identity politics and political correctness. We’re all sick of being labeled racists simply because we’re conservatives who think only citizens with IDs should vote, or that known criminals here illegally should be prosecuted or sent back.
The left continues to alienate themselves from the majority of average Americans with their consistent pushing of progressive ideology, not realizing they are only setting up the president for reelection in 2020.
Maybe one day they’ll get it, but it sure isn’t going to be today.
