There is a reason that Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s intelligence has been compared to that of a rock, and that’s because she so frequently displays for the American people her severe deficiency when it comes to trying to look like she knows what she’s doing.
She is also an incredibly partisan and divisive progressive, quick to use race and religion to advance her ideological agenda, at least when her mumbled statements are coherent enough to be understood.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Pelosi was up to her old divisive ways Monday night during a protest outside of the Supreme Court against President Donald Trump’s recent executive order temporarily halting immigration from seven particularly dangerous and terror-prone nations.
Despite ample evidence to the contrary, Pelosi has persisted in referring to Trump’s actions as a “Muslim ban,” and specifically made note of the Islamic faith of a fellow Democrat lawmaker while introducing him to the crowd, before then quietly urging that congressman to also announce that he is a Muslim.
The Daily Caller reported that Pelosi’s “hot mic” moment came after her introduction of Democrat Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, whom she proudly declared to be a “Muslim member of Congress.”
“Greetings from the great state of Indiana. I’m Congressman Andre Carson!” Carson shouted into the microphone of a bullhorn.
“Tell them you’re a Muslim. Tell them you’re a Muslim,” Pelosi quietly urged Carson, which was just barely caught by the microphone Carson was holding.
Carson promptly obliged his party leader, and continued, “Not only do I represent Indiana’s Seventh Congressional District very proudly, but I happen to be a Muslim and a former police officer.”
The crowd of angry leftists ate it up with a loud cheer, which seems odd considering the general antipathy toward law enforcement held by many of those individuals out protesting.
You can watch Pelosi’s “hot mic” moment right here:
This is nothing less than disgusting, as Pelosi is once again being deliberately divisive and knowingly perpetuating a proven lie, attempting to portray Trump’s temporary immigration ban on a handful of dangerous countries as a ban on all Muslims worldwide.
This was also an incredibly stupid move on Pelosi’s part, for while her lying and divisiveness may play well with her progressive base, she is moving further and further away from mainstream America with the positions she is taking.
Truth be told, the vast majority of American people understand exactly what Trump’s executive order was and wasn’t about, and much to the dismay of Democrats like Pelosi, that vast majority of Americans also support what Trump did, as it was a long-overdue and common sense move.
The sooner Democrats realize that, among other things, the sooner they will emerge from their seemingly self-imposed exile in the political wilderness.
