Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just confirmed it and people are stunned. She is not listening to America at all — this disastrous move will have major political consequences.
Fox News’ Chad Pergram has reported that Pelosi has ordered “the removal of four portraits or her predecessors who served in the Confederacy… the speaker saying they do not belong there anymore.”
This is going to be Pelosi’s schtick from now until the November election — erasing history to score political points with the Democratic Party’s base. But it isn’t going to play well with most Americans.
No one is going to deny the evil of slavery or make excuses for the institution. It should have ended in the U.S. long before the Civil War and passage of the 13th Amendment. However, the Democrats are on a destructive path.
Following Pelosi’s logic, we would have to tear down every portrait, statue, monument, or reference to an American if that person had any kind of connection to a negative part of our nation’s past. But history is meant to instruct and show a full picture.
This does not seem to register in the minds of Pelosi and her far-left colleagues. She has even “urged the removal of Confederate statues from the Capitol and the renaming of U.S. military bases that honor Confederate Army officers,” reported the AP.
