Pelosi: Remove ‘Reprehensible’ Confederate Statues from Capitol

San Fran Nancy and her fellow Johnny-come-lately pals are piling on this week to the French-revolution come to America in which the crazy left is threatening to tear down every statue and monument that has a hint of South associated with it.

In a press statement Pelosi called for the removal of Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol arguing that they’ve ‘always been reprehensible’.

The obvious problem with that argument is that she never seemed to mind them much when she was Speaker of the House and actually had the power to remove them.

But we know this isn’t a surprise to our dear readers.

Bomb-throwing is what Pelosi and her fellow liberals have fashioned into an art form.

But here’s what we absolutely won’t hear from Pelosi: a call to remove the name of former Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd from all the schools, bridges, monuments and post offices, despite that he also was a Grand Wizard of the KKK responsible for countless lynchings throughout the South.

It’s amazing how quickly they forget.

Here’s more from American Mirror…

Nancy Pelosi is now demanding any Confederate statues be removed from the Capitol, despite having the power to do just that just a few years ago, and never doing it herself.

In the wake of attacks on Confederate monuments in Durham, North Carolina and elsewhere around the country, Pelosi is now piling on.

“The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible,” Pelosi, the former House Speaker said in a statement today.

When she was Speaker, Pelosi was effectively the queen of the Capitol and could have removed the monuments at that time, when she also apparently thought they were “reprehensible.”

Continuing, Pelosi said, “If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately.”

The House Minority Leader went on to tut-tut about the symbolic statue gains that were made while the Democrats were in charge.

“…we have recognized more women and people of color in Congress’s collection of statues, including Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth and Helen Keller,” she said.

She bragged about moving Robert E. Lee’s statue, though she never did anything more than that.

Nevertheless, Pelosi said, “There is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the country.”

Press-hungry Sen. Cory Booker issued a similar demand.
