(Liberty Bell) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. We’ve seen this put on display time and time again during his weekly press conferences where she bumbles through some sort of statement and then takes questions from the media, often giving incoherent answers that make little sense.
Well, she’s proven once again that she does not possess the mental aptitude to serve in her current capacity as House Speaker by at once disavowing socialism, while also stating she would support Sen. Bernie Sanders should he nab the Democratic Party presidential nomination. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, right?
Is this what going senile looks like? Because it seems like this is what going senile would look like.
Here’s more on this insanity via WND:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told a reporter Wednesday she would accept Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as the 2020 Democratic nominee despite saying last year her party did not support socialism.
Pelosi told “60 Minutes” last year that she rejects socialism as a system and that it’s not the “view” of the Democratic Party, reported the Washington Free Beacon.
“When Medicare was done by the Congress at the time, under Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan said, ‘Medicare will lead us to a socialist dictatorship.’ This is an ongoing theme of the Republicans,” Pelosi said in the CBS interview.
“However, I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party,” she said.
According to the Free Beacon report, Pelosi stated after the Democrats took control of the House, her main goal was to “hold the center.” Yeah, not quite sure she’s done a real bang up job of that, you know leading the absurdly biased left-wing charge against Trump in order to impeach him and have him booted from office. Kind of doesn’t seem like much of a “center” sort of thing to do, especially with a flimsy, basically non-existent case.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly criticized Pelosi for not being hardcore liberal enough — which basically means she’s not espousing enough socialist policies — but this should come as no surprise, seeing as AOC is a big fan of Bernie’s.
At a CNN town hall in South Carolina on Monday night, Sanders doubled down on his praise for the late Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro’s “literacy program.”
“There was a lot of folks in Cuba at that point who were illiterate. And he formed a literacy brigade — you may read that — he went out and they helped people learn to read and write. You know what? I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing,” he said.
Is that not the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard come out of the mouth of a presidential candidate? How can anyone who is running for political office and has seen the horrific things Castro did to people, ever praise him for something? It’s truly disturbing how out of touch with morality Bernie Sanders truly is.
Four former Cuban political prisoners were absolutely livid with Sanders and penned a letter to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez that the reason Cuba had such high literacy rates is because Castro wanted to feed people propaganda on a constant basis.
In 1959, before the Cuban Revolution, the country had the highest rate of literacy and was considered one of the wealthiest countries in the region. Then along came Fidel and all of that got flushed swirly down the toilet.
Not only did Castro’s regime lead to horrible economic collapse, but thousands of dissidents were murdered and imprisoned in gulags. Castro worked diligently to suppress free speech to ensure people could not speak out against his rule.
Does this sound like the kind of system we want to have in America? No? Then Bernie Sanders cannot be allowed to sit in the White House. Period.
