Nancy Pelosi Scoffs at Leadership Challenge: Iím Female, Iím Progressive, Whatís your Problem?

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi scoffed Wednesday when asked if the victory of self-described Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over House Democratic Caucus chair Joe Crowley (D-NY) in New York’s 14th congressional district demonstrates a change in party leadership is needed. A partial transcript follows:

REPORTER 1#: “Republicans are saying one of the things this [election] shows is that Democrat Socialism is ascendant in your party. Are they right about that?” REP PELOSI: “No, they’re no. It’s ascendant in that district, perhaps. I won’t accept any characterization of our party presented by the Republicans. Let me reject that right now. Right, Mr. Clyburn? Our party is a big tent. Our districts are very different one from the other. As I have said, they spent tens of millions of dollars characterizing me as a left-wing person, wherein my district they call me a corporate pawn because my district is progressive. So, it isn’t about that. It’s about representation. Each of our members is elected to be an independent representative of their district. Their job description and their job title are one and the same. No nobody’s district is representative of somebody else’s district. It’s just a sign of the vitality of our party. We’re not a rubber stamp. As I said, calling each other by first names here — Chad — the beauty is in the mix.”

REPORTER #2: “The Democratic Party is increasingly younger, more female, more diverse, more progressive. Should the Democratic House leadership look that way?”

Progress=newspeak for Marxist.

My problem, Pewlosi, is you’re a traitor to the Republic.

“Nancy Pelosi, I’m female, I’m Progressive, What’s your problem?

The “problem” is you’re an idiot! But you just keep flapping your gums, because with each “flap,” you are sinking your Party deeper into the political doo doo.

The name “progressive” has been around for a century+.

As with most communists it is very clever. They use a name which to most people means “advancing”, i.e., that’s the first definition they think. But it actually means for commies “gradual”, which is indeed another definition of the word; this is the manner in which they intend to take over, because they see true revolution as futile.

“The name “progressive” has been around for a century+.”

Teddy Roosevelt used the term. But like all liars and deceivers, the Marxists pervert meanings under guises and camouflage...to hide their intended meaning. To change their meaning promoting their agenda and hide it from the rest. Newspeak progressives today know what this means and identifies them as one from their “team”.

Normally she says, “When have you asked Senator McConnell if he is too old?” She has a point. I’d like McConnell to leave as he is too old. Sure he did ONE good thing by keeping the Supreme Court in our hands, but otherwise, he has been dismal. Time for new blood in leadership in both parties.
