(Liberty Bell) – Leftist politicians have made it clear over the years that they believe they are elites who know what’s best for us, and that we are nothing more than dolts who should do what they tell us to do.
Granted, they don’t really come out and say that plainly, because, well, that wouldn’t go over too well with Americans who like to at least pretend they have some sort of autonomous control over their lives. However, their actions definitely speak louder than words.
Take for example, the recent security footage that revealed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited a hair salon during the coronavirus lockdowns. Pelosi knew that going to this establishment would be a violation of the restrictions for all citizens of California, but she opted to ignore them believing herself somehow to be above the rest of us. Obedience for her is not required, though it is for you and me.
A salon owner from Texas called Pelosi out for this and stated clearly that politicians today think “they are better than us.”
Dallas, TX salon owner Shelley Luther, now a candidate for a state senate seat, was fined and jailed for re-opening her salon during the coronavirus lockdown, despite a court order requiring her to close down her business. Luther, on Thursday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” joined those critical of Pelosi, saying politicians these days think “they are better than us and they can do whatever they want.”
“This doesn’t surprise me at all. I mean, this is what we’ve come to expect from politicians these days — thinking they are better than us and they can do whatever they want,” Luther advised.
Luther, who said she defied the court order earlier this year to provide for her family, said Pelosi’s claim she was “set up” is “disgusting” and “a joke.”
“That’s a joke, and for anyone that believes that, they’ve got to be kidding themselves,” she declared. “And what frustrates me even more is everyone in her party backing her or not saying anything, and that’s what’s wrong with politics these days. They all back each other, no one comes forward and says, ‘You know what, she shouldn’t have done that. … It’s embarrassing.’ Or maybe apologize, but to put this salon owner on the spot and say it was her fault is disgusting.”
Luther went on to say Pelosi “should have taken a personal responsibility” to wear a mask if she is “the one keeping people from working.”
This is the kind of elitist mentality that conservatives have been trying to warn the vast majority of American citizens about for a very long time. We recognize that when people get power, they often times end up diving into corruption. Power is a big temptation to withstand. Many abuse it to get what they truly desire, even if it hurts other people.
Pelosi is demonstrating this mentality here. She’s been busted abusing her authority and now she’s trying to make excuses for it, like saying she’s been “set up.” Set up or not, she still did what she wasn’t supposed to do.
If Democrats really want to help people, they have to stop behaving as if they are better than the rest of us.
