Nancy Pelosi has a very difficult time separating fact from fantasy and the hypocrisy that she continues to vomit on the poor souls of America is beyond comprehension. After the capitol riot on 1/6 she implemented procedures where every lawmaker would have to pass through a metal detector to keep everyone safe (from all of those monstrous Republicans).
As a result, she docked $5,000 from both Reps. Louie Gohmert and Andrew Clyde’s pay for defying the new procedures, according to a senior Democratic aide.
Obviously anything you can do to protect people is a good thing, just don’t ruin it by playing politics.
In a statement, she said that “Many House Republicans began disrespecting our heroes by refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our congressional community safe — including by dodging metal detectors, physically pushing past police, and even attempting to bring firearms into the chamber.”
Now, this all seems like a good idea on the surface, but the fact that she says that Republicans are “disrespecting our heroes” by refusing to comply with her new procedures is the height of hypocrisy. She has spent almost a year ignoring how her side of the aisle has disrespected police officers across the nation. They have been spit on, had urine and feces thrown on them, had objects thrown at them and fireworks shot at them. What has Nancy had to say about this? Nothing.
I am not saying that the folks who protect the capitol do not deserve the same amount of respect because they do, but once again she conveniently forgets the thousands of police who have been subjected to this vile type of behavior, sometimes on a daily basis. She forgets the hundreds of riots where police officers have been injured, insulted, and disrespected by the domestic terrorists from ANTIFA and BLM.
Her behavior, unfortunately, is to be expected. She has once again has proven that she has no insight as to her own behavior and that by ignoring the lefts own incredibly inappropriate behavior, it shows that she is the worst kind of hypocrite.
I hope that these gentlemen refuse to pay the fine but in all honesty, they do need to follow the rules…
