Talk about incitement. Nancy Pelosi is now actively inciting violence against Republicans in the House.
Signaling that she’s going into full-blown hysterical McCarthyism mode, Pelosi is accusing her own house colleagues of being terrorists. Says Pelosi: “the enemy is within the House of Representatives.”
“It shouldn’t be that not only is the president of the United States inciting an insurrection but keeps fanning the flame endangering the security of members of Congress, to the point that they’re even concerned about members in the House of Representatives being a danger to them,” she said.
Asked what she meant by “the enemy is within,” Pelosi said, “It means that we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.”
That’s a lie and she knows it. The only members of Congress that are standing up to their rights to carry arms are doing it for their own self-protection. If Pelosi thinks that carrying arms in Congress is wrong, why does she have armed guards?
What Pelosi is doing is undermining democracy itself. She’s trying to delegitimize Congress itself and anyone that opposes her. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the next step is criminalizing opposition and sending all Republicans in Congress to the gulag.
