For a moment there it looked like Nancy Pelosi was going to side with the radical Marxists who want all history destroyed – not just former Confederates, but American heroes like Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Grant.
She must have seen a poll of how most Americans think about that.
The Washington Examiner reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will not seek the removal of Capitol statues depicting George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, telling reporters only the likenesses of Confederate officers should be expunged.
“It’s not about Washington and Jefferson,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday.
Make no mistake. Pelosi is only backing off because she knows just how bad this sort of thing is for the Democrat party. The silent majority is hard to arouse, but they’re a terrible force once they wake.
Americans are proud of their history. Pelosi knows this, and she’s crafty enough to back off – for now.
