Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for calling federal law enforcement officers “stormtroopers.”
On Thursday Pelosi said, “Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. These are not the actions of a democratic republic. @DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission. Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”
Wolf hit back at Pelosi on Friday saying, “One, it’s disgusting, two it’s an assault on every federal or civilian or state and local law enforcement officer who has taken an oath to protect their communities, to protect, in our case, federal facilities, to do their jobs and I think it’s very very dangerous.”
Pelosi’s “Stormtrooper” comments exemplify the Democrat party’s view of law enforcement. Instead of condemning rioters and lawlessness, the Democrat party has instead chosen to slander America’s law enforcement.
Pelosi isn’t subtle about her attempts to evoke visions of a fascist police force that has no accountability.
This is a gross injustice and Speaker Pelosi should apologize for her demonization of the brave men and women who work to protect law and order.
