I sat in disbelief. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Before I could even write this, I needed to pray and settle my spirit. I needed to see if I had imagined this or if they actually said the things they said.
Who said it ? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. What did they say? First of all, they said that President Trump manufactured a crisis. They said in front of thousands of people who lost loved ones to murderers–murderers who had no right roaming among innocent Americans. Murderers that Nancy and Chuck still protect.
What is truly cold-blooded is that they know they are lying. They know we know they are lying. They stood there embalmed of all human decency and robotically reeled off their talking points.
No compassion. Not even a nod to those whose husbands, wives, sons, daughters, moms and dads were taken from them. Women were raped, beaten to death with a hammer—neighbors shot, beheaded, dismembered—a young police officer shot and killed the day after Christmas by a man who could not be arrested in Nancy’s home sanctuary state of California. Most of them killed Americans after several arrests and deportations.
The real victims, said Nancy and Chuck, are the federal workers who won’t get paid this Friday. But they will not lose a penny. They will be paid in full when this shutdown ends. However, none of the real victims of the crisis will get their loved ones back.
What kind of a mind can draw a moral equivalence between a family that has lost a loved one to murder and a worker who at worst is having their paycheck delayed? That is bad enough. But what about Chuck and Nancy who think the unpaid federal workers are the greater victims?
The worst part of tonight is that it confirmed that most horrifying thing about America. Their smug, dismissive, intelligence insulting tone, confirmed that our nation is run by an elite class who deem themselves above any accountability or the rule of law. An elite class that themselves, live behind walls and are guarded by men with the guns, the same guns they want to take away from us. This elite class is served by everything from the media, to late night sock puppet hosts, and Hollywood.
What you saw tonight should enrage you. They stood there and told you that they don’t accept Trump’s facts. They make up of the facts. They issued the only reality we are allowed to believe. They told you that you are too stupid and unworthy to draw any other conclusion than the official one that we give you. Look closely at their expression it says, “when we want your opinion, we’ll give it to you.”
Trump is a true outsider. That is the root of all the hatred toward him. He shocked the denizens of the Washington swamp by actually keeping his promise. We all know that Chuck and Nancy voted for the wall but only changed their minds because Trump won. They have no motive but hate. They have no plan but to oust Trump.
The wall must be built not just for national security but for national sanity. At some point the people need to see the president they elected exercise the platform that won him that election. If ever a man needed to hold his ground on a matter it is Donald Trump. Do not give in Mr. President. Never!
