Got Hypocrisy? Pelosi Pimps Photo-op With Same Troops She Called ‘Stormtroopers’ During BLM and Antifa Riots

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has no shame. But you already knew that. Not only will this hypocrite do anything for the sake of political expediency; the depth of her hypocrisy is unequaled on Capitol Hill — where Democrat hypocrisy runs deep on a daily basis.
So it comes as no surprise that Pelosi has once again taken home the coveted Hypocrite of the Week award, which by my calculation has been won by a Democrat — with a few CNN and PMSNBC lapdogs sprinkled in along the way — for a record 8,769 weeks in a row.
Pelosi’s mind-boggling — though not at all surprising — winning effort came in the form of a photo-op with National Guardsmen who were lined up in front of the Capitol in advance of Wednesday’s inauguration of Joe Biden and
Willie’s chew toy Kamala Harris.
The above image, of course, was splattered all over Twitter, many tweets going with the “THIS is how you honor the troops” theme and other liberal-loon nonsense.
“Today, it was my honor to join @chefjoseandres and @WCKitchen to provide meals to our heroic National Guard troops who are keeping our Congressional community safe during this difficult time.”
“Heroic National Guard troops,” Nancy? Short memory? One of those vapor locks in your brain when you start mumbling incoherently during your awkward press conferences?
“Shockingly,” Pelosi pimped her politically-expedient charade on her Twitter page.
“Even during this dark time in the history of America, we find reasons for hope. It was my privilege today to personally thank members of the National Guard who are working [to] protect our nation’s Capitol. Thank you for your commitment to our American democracy.”
Oh please. How can I put this tactfully? What a complete load of crap.
Did I mention that this is the same Nancy Pelosi who in July referred to the same National Guardsmen as “stormtroopers“? Remember, as Black Lives Matter Marxists and Antifa anarchists burned and looted cities across America, in which at least one child and two police officers were shot and killed? Yeah — same Pelosi, same National Guard.
As reported by BizPack Review, Pelosi also in July sent a letter to President Trump in which she railed about the “stormtroopers” — AKA: “National Guardsmen sent to protect our nation’s capital from BLM and Antifa rioters,” which reads, in part:
“We are concerned about the increased militarization and lack of clarity that may increase chaos. I am writing to request a full list of the agencies involved and clarifications of the roles and responsibilities of the troops and federal law enforcement resources operating in the city.
“Congress and the American people need to know who is in charge, what is the chain of command, what is the mission, and by what authority is the National Guard from other states operating in the capital.”
Let’s pretend — we have to pretend because, to my knowledge, MAGA ralliers have never torched buildings, looted, destroyed small businesses, or shot and killed anyone — that Trump supporters last summer came even close to the destruction visited on America by BLM thugs and Antifa anarchists. Would Pelosi have called Guardsmen, sent to quell the violence, “stormtroopers”?
I’ll take “Oh Hell No” for $500, Alex.
Nauseatingly, Madam Speaker thanked the troops and their families “for protecting the Capitol and our democracy.” Additionally, Pelosi presented each Guardsman with one of her ridiculous “challenge coins” — embossed with her signature, of course.
As legendary as Democrat hypocrisy is, in a way it is also amusing as hell. The sheer audacity of it. BOTOX Nan railed against the Guard and President Trump during the BLM riots in D.C. She railed against police officers as well, during months of rioting in Portland, Seattle, New York City, and other cities across America.
Yet — in blatantly-political stunt — she trots
her ass out of the Capitol to thank “our heroic troops” for their “commitment to our American democracy.” “Stormtroopers” during one riot, “heroic troops” during a far-less-violent and far-less-destructive “riot.”
This, America, is yet another quintessential example of why Nancy Pelosi is the singularly most hypocritical Democrat on the planet.
OK, fine. There are a helluva lot of close seconds. But you get the point.
