I belong to one of the Left’s least favored groups. I am a straight White male and also a Southerner and a Christian. So I’m about as out of step with the Leftist establishment as you can get. Actually, the Left has become the far-Left with a stringent aversion not only to straight White males but to many long-standing traditions. Straight White males have also earned the enmity of today’s bitter authoritarian females, hussies like Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, and Hillary Clinton.
Any discussion of resentful females brings to mind the ABC talk show, The View. After two decades of enthusiastic female audiences, the viewership of the The View is declining. Traditional women are rejecting the bitter feminism and anti-male agenda espoused by The View’s surly shrews. Recently, some are even questioning the mental stability of panelists like Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg.
The far-Left’s current prima donna is the self-anointed luminary and media-created celebrity , Nancy Pelosi. A member of Congress since 1987, the octogenarian Pelosi often exhibits senility in her speech and behavior. As the first female Speaker of the House, Pelosi’s media sycophants have not only embellished her successes but have minimized and even lied about her failures.
Using her authority as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi removed the Capitol portraits of former House Speakers who had served as Confederate leaders. She also orchestrated a House of Representatives vote to remove all statues of Confederate leaders from the Capitol which Pelosi characterized as a “Homage to Hate.” Speaker Pelosi made a PR event out of removing the time-honored statue of Robert E. Lee that had been a special feature of the National Statuary Mall for over a hundred years. She designated the famous Lee statue as a “symbol of hate” and replaced it with a statue of Rosa Parks.
Nancy Pelosi has never been a popular national figure. If Hillary Clinton can refer to Heartland Americans as “deplorables”, Heartland Americans should be permitted to designate politicians like Pelosi as “despicables.” And despicable is an appropriate designation. It is estimated that Pelosi’s unwise actions, like her promotion of the failed Obamacare, have wasted billions of taxpayer dollars. For years, there has been speculation, and certainly hope, that Pelosi would retire. But, although she and her husband are billionaires, Pelosi needs to be in the limelight.
Pelosi’s latest boondoggle is the sham congressional commission supposedly investigating the January 6, 2021 assault on the Capitol. Actually this commission is simply the third attempt to impeach Donald Trump and prevent him from running for president again. Pelosi stacked this nine member commission with 7 Democrats and 2 RINOs (Republicans in name only.) Apparently Pelosi thinks the public is gullible enough to believe her commission is non-partisan.
Pelosi and the far-Left know how popular Donald Trump is with middle America and how the Trump administration’s successes eclipsed the Biden administration’s failures. Consequently, the far-Left will go to any extreme to tarnish Trump’s approval with America’s heartland. And discrediting Trump is the real reason for Pelosi’s bogus January 6 commission.
Former Attorney General, Bill Barr informed the committee that he resigned from the Trump administration rather than challenge election results. Barr insinuates that Trump’s claim that the election was stolen may indicate that Trump has a mental problem. But a substantial segment of the population also believes the election was stolen. Would Barr call this mass psychosis ? Barr claims that the election wasn’t stolen but presents no evidence to refute the numerous allegations of voter fraud.
Our Founders couldn’t have anticipated that many congressional members would make a career out of public service. But with 35 years in office, Nancy Pelosi is a classic career politician. If Democrats lose the 2022 midterm elections they will probably also lose the 2024 presidential election. And that should hopefully end the long and unproductive career of Nancy Pelosi.
