House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was thrown on the defensive.
Once again, her penchant for gaffes got the better of her.
Nancy Pelosi heard two words that caused her world to crash down before her eyes.
Senate Republicans offered up a police reform bill that South Carolina Senator Tim Scott took point on.
Scott – who is black and has often spoken of how police still racially profile him in the Capitol even though he wore his Senate pin – offered up a bill to reform police conduct while respecting the fact that 99.99 percent of police officers are dedicated professionals that just want to serve and protect their communities then go home to their families at night.
Senate Democrats filibustered the bill because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rammed through competing legislation in the House that would destroy police by putting Democrats in Washington in charge of dictating police conduct.
In a radio interview with CBS, Speaker Pelosi smeared Scott as being complicit in the murder of George Floyd by rejecting the Democrats’ federal power grab over police.
“And so, in other words, for something to happen, they’re going to have to face the realities of police brutality, and the reality of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there are many, many good people in law enforcement, but not all, and that we have to address those concerns. So, when they admit that and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far, they were trying to get away with murder, actually. The murder of George Floyd,” Pelosi raged.
Scott fired back in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Guy Benson where he called Pelosi’s demented attack a “sinful comment.”
“It was the most outrageous, sinful comment I’ve heard as a public official period. I thought to myself that how in the world does this woman sitting, standing in front of a twenty-four thousand dollar refrigerator have the sense to jump into the bottomless pit of race politics? Why in the world would she want to do that? There’s only one answer, by the way. One answer. It’s because she’s lived so long in a state of privilege that she has forgotten,” Scott added.
Democrats are clearly playing politics with this issue.
Pelosi and her allies believe Joe Biden will win the White House and the ensuing landslide will sweep Democrats into power in the Senate.
Once that happens, Democrats can eliminate the legislative filibuster and ram through all sorts of socialist schemes on party lines votes and the Republicans will be powerless to stop them.
And at the top of that list will be Pelosi’s bill to gut police in America by putting them under the control of Washington Democrats.
