Nancy Pelosi Encourages Democrats To Throw Punches For…The Children

Heh. Because Democrats are just violent thugs at heart!

Remember when Nancy Pelosi deftly scolded Maxine Waters by pointing out the need for civility and unity after the California representative encouraged her supporters to harass Trump officials?

Well, apparently Pelosi’s sanctimonious claptrap had a short shelf life because here is Rumble Doll Pelosi at a DNC meeting today, telling members that they had better be ready to take a punch, and be ready to throw a punch in this election cycle. For the children, of course:

  2. So much for the tolerant left

  3. Oh Nancy… that’s a mistake. You’re going right into Trump’s trap.

    Why can’t they see this?

  4. The “sanctimonious claptrap” was over a year (and one election) ago, which makes the “shelf life” about 365 days (and one election) longer than anything ever said by Donald Trump…

  5. “You have to be ready to take a punch,” she says. “And therefore you have to be ready to throw a punch—for the children.”

    “And always have a safe word, for example ‘Palomino’“, she added.

  7. Violence in the name of… the children. Well, that’ll fit well on a bumper sticker.

  10. This antiquated system of electing our government invented by a handful of white European slave owners 2,500 years ago is making Ingsoc’s Inner Party look good to me with every day that goes by.

  11. Yes pericles had publicists like thucydides,

  12. They make it sound like he was just a mere spectator, but he was one of the generals at the outset of the pelopennessian war

    Every plague afflicting modern society and holding it back from orange-tinted greatness has its origins with the Greeks:

    The Academy
    History and Journalism

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Jay Powell had a Greek in the woodpile either.

  14. It wouldn’t surprise me if Jay Powell had a Greek in the woodpile either.

    Of course he does. The first homo sapiens in Europe were Greeks, remember?

    And I almost agree about the other things. Democracy/Athens, Academy/Plato, History/Herodotus, Journalism/Thucydides and Xenophon. But Hollywood?

    nk (dbc370)

  15. But Hollywood?
    Aeschylus and Aristophanes…

    Kishnevi (0acdcd)

  16. Actually, it was more like Herodotus for Journalism and Thucydides for History.

    Kishnevi (0acdcd)

  17. Love Buffer

  18. Aeschylus and Aristophanes…

    Thanks Kishnevi, I’m disappointed nk didn’t pick up on that one.

  19. Actually, it was more like Herodotus for Journalism and Thucydides for History.

    Mmm, no. Herodotus would have been about five years old at the time of the battles of Salamis and Plataea, the final battles of the Persian wars, and 45 years yet unborn when Cyrus died, not to mention that he invented the word “history”. Thucydides, on the other hand, fought in the Peloponnesian War, a kind of war correspondent.

    nk (dbc370)

  20. I was thinking more of Herodotus’s alternate title, Father of Lies, and his habit of including any and every good story he was told.

    Kishnevi (0acdcd)

  21. Granted. Herodotus tends towards the fabulous while Thucydides is far more factual. Even Greeks agree about that. But what is history if not “a fable agreed upon” (Napoleon Bonaparte)?

    nk (dbc370)

  22. Well herodotus was very creative, i can see where frank miller didnt really exagerrate, noe the sequel even eva green couldnt save.

    Anyways ‘when will he have enough’

    Narciso (222325)

  23. You bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun

  24. I thought it was Sean Connery.

    nk (dbc370)

  25. Well, it was originally Indiana Jones. But he was sick that day.
