House Speaker pays phony tribute to “One Country, One Destiny”
There aren’t many Democrats left who should not be ashamed to honor the Fourth of July. They made 2020 all about tearing this nation into liberal-sized pieces ripe for exploiting.
No one knows how to do this better than Nancy Pelosi. She paid tribute to Independence Day with a few phony remarks about the American flag to kick off her pre-holiday press conference:
Tomorrow’s a national holiday, getting ready for the Fourth of July. I wear this flag pin quite frequently. I have a couple different flag pins, but this one particularly fraught with meaning. It says on it, ‘One country, one destiny.’ The American flag: ‘One country, one destiny.’ These were the words that were woven into Abraham Lincoln’s coat. It was an imperative then, ‘One country, one destiny.’ It is an imperative now, especially now, when we have such challenges to the well-being of our country.1
Had she been honest, she would have admitted she means “one country, one destiny for Democrats.”
Pelosi’s comments quickly became offensive as she proceeded to attack the Trump administration and Mitch McConnell’s Senate leadership. She could have suggested that for just one short day we put our differences aside and celebrate what we all have in common, but the speaker is savvy enough to know that when you are driving the nation apart you have to be on the ball 24/7.
It took a war to make this country and now a new war is threatening to destroy us. Many of the iconic American figures responsible for our independence are in danger of disappearing as Democrats strive to sanitize our heritage with their newly woke revisionist history. Even Mount Rushmore and an Abraham Lincoln monument at the University of Wisconsin in Madison are under fire as the left’s definition of unacceptable widens to include everything that happened before the killing of George Floyd.
Pelosi’s liberty and justice is an anarchist call to action
Pelosi had the audacity to trot out “liberty and justice for all” as if it is a shared American value instead of a partisan call to action. The reference was about the bills Democrats can’t get through Congress and their hypocritical support for an Affordable Care Act many in the party are more than ready to swap for a single payer socialist health plan:
The pledge to the flag ends with ‘liberty and justice for all.’ And everything that I talked about here, whether it was health care or job security or environmental justice or Justice in Policing or statehood for the District of – we’re talking about liberty and justice for all.2
Passage of these stalled bills and punishment from the anarchic neo-left is just one election away. Justice for all will be a very bad thing when Democrats get the power to settle accounts and attack those who don’t kneel to their increasingly extreme values.
18 Democrats cosponsored resolution supporting flag burning
Last July Minnesota insurgent Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced H.Res.496. Among other acts of protest the resolution affirmed that flag burning is constitutionally-protected free speech. Pelosi had the political sense to not sign on to that one, but eighteen of her fellow party members endorsed Omar’s resolution.
We have come a long way since last year’s Independence Day. Hatred for America, our history, and institutions is at a fever pitch. The left is burning a lot more than American flags and they are getting away with it.
Democrats have worked hard. They are very good at what they do. There is a lot at stake for the party this year and by all appearance they are winning.
This makes Nancy Pelosi’s American flag remarks even more phony and offensive to anyone who cares the least bit about this country. Her party’s endorsement of anti-Americanism is a shrewd calculation that hating our country will bring in enough votes to put Democrats forever in charge of our destiny.
I didn’t see a picture to accompany the speaker’s press conference. For now we’ll assume that the flag pin she is so enamored with was pinned right side up.
