Athena Pappas | Patriots Freedom
Oh, Nancy, Nancy, Nancy. Please make up your mind. You’ve flip-flopped so many times over the years that we’re having trouble keeping up. We can’t help but think back to your comments to Trump after he called in the National Guard troops during the George Floyd riots. You were livid, as we recall:
“I sent a letter to the President expressing concern about the increased militarization and lack of clarity that might increase chaos. By what authority do these National Guard people come in from other states?” (Nancy Pelosi)
How odd, then, that just last week, (on January 13th) you spoke these encouraging words to National Guard troops, which had been called to D.C. for your friend Joe Biden’s inauguration:
“I hope that the fact that you are here will be a deterrent to those who have come to undermine our Constitution. We want the message to be clear, that the Capitol, our Democracy, our Constitution are safe because of your patriotism.”
Um. Either you want the National Guard there, or you don’t. Surely you’re not flip-flopping for political reasons, right?
This isn’t the first time you’ve flip-flopped on an issue, Nancy. Remember, back in June of 2018, when you uttered these inciteful words after the violent and deadly BLM riots and lootings:
“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country. And maybe there will be.”
We got your point. You were all for the riots. You were all for the looting. In fact, you felt so strongly about it all that you actually believed there should be uprisings “all over the country.” We were stunned to hear such a thing from the Speaker of the House, as you might expect.
Compare your 2018 words with your (completely opposite) response to what happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th:
If I’m remembering correctly, you referred to Republicans and the White House as “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state” and accused them of boosting “uprisings all over the country.”
Make up your mind! In 2018 you wanted uprisings all over the country. In 2021, (because it doesn’t suit your narrative), you don’t? Is that how this works? Pardon me for stating the obvious, but this flip-flopping attitude is a bit, well, hypocritical.
Speaking of comments you’ve made in the past, what about that time, back in 2017, where you accused Republicans of hijacking the presidency? On May 16th, 2017, you posted this tweet:
You created quite a stir with that accusation, Nancy.
These days, however, you suddenly think it’s immoral to believe an election might’ve been rigged, hijacked, or stolen. In fact, people who’ve made accusations like that one you made back in 2017 have lost their social media accounts, their reputations, and even their jobs. (Don’t believe it? Ask many of Trump’s associates and supporters.)
You’ve flip-flopped once again, Nancy! Here’s what you recently said about Trump supporters who questioned the integrity of our recent presidential election:
“They're engaged in an absurd circus right now, refusing to accept reality. Stop the circus and get to work on what really matters to the American people — their health and their economic security.”
Okay then. So, it’s okay for you to question an election’s integrity but not okay for us to? Hypocrisy much?
Hey, speaking of flip-flops, here are a few more times you’ve confused us, Nancy.
Remember, just last month, how you said that a $600 stimulus check was a “significant” amount for working families?
We remember. Of course, we also remember that video tour you gave of your California mansion with the freezer stocked full of high-end ice creams that few working families could afford.
Nancy, Nancy, Nancy. We’re starting to smell some real hypocrisy here!
Hey, remember this?
Back in 2011, when Obama was president, a payroll tax change made it possible for some working-class families to receive an extra $40. You went on record stating how important that $40 was.
Jump ahead to Trump’s tax cuts. . .which you opposed.
So, you do. . .or don’t. . .think American families deserve a break? We’re confused.
And then there was that time you fought to keep the House from voting on Republican’s healthcare reforms.
Weren’t you in favor of healthcare reforms when Obama was in office?
If one didn’t know any better, one might think you were politically motivated, focused solely on your team.
This would be an excellent time to stop flip-flopping, Nancy. Be consistent. Be true to the American people, not a political party. Get rid of the hypocrisy.
A little consistency would go a long way in bringing a severely fractured country back together again, after all.
