Pelosi Demands "Reprehensible" Confederate Statues Be Removed From Capitol

As the nation's left attempts to out-virtue-signal one another, Democratic Party leader nancy Pelosi just one-upped New York Governor Cuomo's street-name-removal demands, by calling for all Confederate statues to be removed from The Capitol.

Pelosi Calls for Removal of Confederate Statues From Capitol

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement calling on Speaker Ryan to join Democrats in supporting legislation to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol:

"The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation.

 

"The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible. 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.

 

"Under the leadership of Democrats in Congress, we have recognized more women and people of color in Congress's collection of statues, including Rosa Parks, Sojourner Truth and Helen Keller. As Speaker, we relocated Robert E. Lee out of a place of honor in National Statuary Hall — a place now occupied by the statue of Rosa Robert E. Lee out of a place of honor in National Statuary Hall — a place now occupied by the statue of Rosa Parks.

 

"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."

As Jim Quinn concluded so eloquently, Trump was absolutely correct in asking, “Where does it end?”

Washington owned slaves. Do we get rid of all dollar bills and quarters? Do we change the name of our capital? Do we change the name of Washington & Lee University to Obama & Spike Lee University? Do we blow up the Washington Memorial?

Jefferson owned slaves. Do we get rid of nickles? How about the Jefferson Memorial?

Why stop only in our country? The Egyptian pyramids were built by slaves. Should we tear those down? If these are symbols of hatred and racism that must be destroyed, why do we never hear calls from the left for the destruction of the Nazi death camps. Talk about symbols of hate. Why would we want to remember the holocaust? It couldn’t be that it doesn’t fit the left’s narrative.

This Confederate monument narrative is designed by the left to provoke a backlash from whites who are tired of being scorned, ridiculed, belittled and called racists, rednecks and deplorables by so called open minded progressives. It’s working. The cold race war is beginning to turn hot. The president has no intention of trying to bring the two sides together because it’s impossible at this point. That’s how Fourth Turnings roll. The mood of the country will continue to darken. Reactions to these types of events will intensify. More blood will be shed. It’s too bad these functional illiterates didn’t pay attention in history class or ever read a book. They are going to learn some harsh lessons over the next decade.

Can we rename all the Robert C. Byrd shit already?

The demise of a political system is near when the appearance of virtue trumps reality.

Hey Nancy, here's an idea.

 

Why don't you walk a few blocks southeast from Capitol Hill, and offer the most scraggly & destitute black person you see a handful of ONE DOLLAR BILLS (with 'slave owner', George Washington's, portrait on it).

 

See what transpires.

ISIS tear down monuments.

How is this different?

Syrin's picture

These statues weren't offenseive the past eight years under the Fuhrer?   Care to explain that?

Occident Mortal's picture

ISIS tear down monuments to make it easier to control people.

Just saying.

This is the best thing for the Republicans since the 159 anti-white ethnic cleansing riots of 1967.

Occident Mortal's picture

When ISIS tear down monuments we call it "an act of cultural genocide".

Just saying.

Nancy I feel the same about guillotines and you do about taking down statues.

Did they just put these Confederate monuments up last week or are they still being constructed? I'm confused

lil dirtball's picture

Oh, how long can trusty Congress hold out? How can they possibly resist the diabolical urge to push the button that could erase their very existence?

Can they withstand the temptation to push the button that, even now, beckons them closer? Will they succumb to the maddening urge to eradicate history? At the MERE PUSH of a SINGLE BUTTON! The beeyootiful shiny button! The jolly candy-like button! Will they hold out, folks? CAN they hold out?

What's Nancy gonna do about Stone Mountain?

Blow it up, ISIS style?

OK, whos got the balls to create a online petition on whitehouse.gov for a statue honoring the great service of Robert C. Byrd? I think we can hit the 100,000 signatures overnight if its done. - I do not have the balls to do it.

I'll have to go back and look at the electoral map of Trump's victory.  Seems that enough southern states sent Billhary home that the DNC is now free to lash out at "southern democrats" in order to impress big city PC morons.  I don't think this will be a net gain for DNC.  Similar infuriating story just happened in Helena, MT.  The state elected Trump so now the capital and college towns are lashing out with the PC victim agenda to insult the depolorables.

Nancy Pelosi is a reprehensible instigator and needs to be removed from DC permanently.

She must be jumping for joy when she sees riots.

Albert Pike's statue is still standing in DC, a couple blox from the WH.

SMG's picture

Satanic Globalist Albert Pike that is.

The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the 'agentur' of the 'Illuminati' between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical. We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.

Pike has special Southern charm to the Lodge folks.

I am sure Albert is safe.

Fine gentleman he was, or so I have heard... /sarc

Is it not a relief to know that congressional leaders have their priorities straight? What could possibly be more pressing than removing stationary statues that have been there for a better part of a generation or two???

These politicians never disappoint do they...?  They certainly know which way the wind blows. Now back to your lair beast, I mean chamber of Congress; Ahh...but wait...need some vacation time first...How nice!

Putin did all of this to mess with the 2016 election - amazing he put up all of these momenuments for the election but they look decades or centuries old - maniacal!

Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville--1925. A black woman on Meet The Press, though, said "in the late '60s to scare black people". She was wrong on all counts. The square and monument were donated to the city together.

Just a new narrative to try and get something to stick on current administration. These guys have NO idea the damage they are doing to the future timeline with this BS no agenda strategy.

Hey man, that Mount Rushmore is OFFENSIVE! Tear down that mountain!

There is no room for the bigotry of Pelosi in Washington DC.  Get her out of there ASAP>

Shame on you Nancy all all the other fuckwads blowing with the political wind. Who the fuck are you to demand anything, you reprehensible whore. Instead of changing names and removing statues and renaming street and place names, we need to remove "Reprehensibles" such as yourself and all the other assholes who are trying to rewrite/erase history from public office. You are the ones who should be impeached, and busted for hate crimes, racketeering, and domestic terrorism.

All you "reprehensible" political hacks who claim to be representatives of the people - stand up and start doing your jobs. Defend America - don't tear her apart. And if you won't do that, GO HOME and let better qualified people do the job you refuse to do!

What about the Democrat party, which was pretty much founded by the KKK, shouldn't we be talking about getting rid of that?  What the hell are we going to do with Gettysburg PA, they got statues all over the fucking place up there?!?!?!?

Gettysburg - wasn't that a major site of the War of Northern Aggression ???

Shame on you Nancy all all the other fuckwads blowing with the political wind.

 

The Russian narrative didn't work, so they are seizing on the Confederate slavery thing, to then demonize Trump voters. 

The Democratic party is using identity politics, because they have no economic argument.  They are basically republicans when it comes to economics, whatever is good for the banks, or Clinton's pay to play fund.  Neoconservatives siezed the Democratic party during the first Clinton adminstration.

The Democrats probably figure there is more than enough single women, browns, blacks, and gays to win at the identity politics game. This then pushes hetero whites and their wives into the Trump/Republican camp.  

 

American Psycho's picture

Are there any politicians aside from the POTUS that actually believe history is important?  and how intellectually dishonest is it to say, "all things confederate are racist?"

HalinCA's picture

YES! This is how the Dems will get out the black vote next year!

Pure genius!

They don't have to do anything to help people at all.  They don't have to do anything at all. 

Anyone not voting for them is obviously a racist!

PrezTrump's picture

DEMS WONT GET SHIT.  TRUMP VOTERS WILL COME RIGHT BACK IN FULL FORCE.  THE MEDIA HAVE ROYALLY F'D UP.

Blankone's picture

The media is winning, the momentum is with the antifa and SJW's, the cops only respond to their instructions not any conviction regarding ethics, military commanders are coming out and making statements that are veiled supports for antifa's and the SJW's actions.

Trump supporters were blocked on the highways, at the entrances to rally's, hit, bottles thrown at and hit, kicked - and the cops stood down. In San Jose a legal rally of whites were attacked and some even stabbed - the mayor and police chief ordered the cops to stand down - then the police chief stated that the whites must accept blame because they were seen as a hate group, at Berkeley the cops were ordered to stand down and stay indoors while antifa beat whites holds a legal rally supporting Trump - some were seriously injured and one was in the hospital a long time with brain injuries and may have died, just recently at Charlottesville a legally permitted group of whites were attacked by antifa and some black thugs - the cops stood down - then the press and Trump demonized the legal group, then cops were ordered to stand down while statues were destroyed - and the governor supported the actions by stating all the statues need to be pulled down, now republican officials are falling over themselves to denounce Trump for not being quicker to demonize the legal group and support antifa - then Trump backed off a little and the repubs went after him for that.

Who is winning? Even the repub leadership is sooo afraid NOT to be at the front of calling any white group a hate group and that they have forfeited their police protection and rights that the repubs are blasting any who put ANY blame on the antifa and black thugs at Charlottesville.

The Dems won't get a single white vote South of the Mason Dixon line for 100 years...

edotabin's picture

And to think it was the democrats that were slave owners etc......

Ridiculous stuff

HalinCA's picture

Probably right ... but what they need are PA, MI, and WI ... And by running Kamala Harris and that MA ex-governor, they lock it up for sure.

Thom Paine's picture

You are wrong, and typecasting the black vote.

Many do not want the lunacy of extreme left and chaos they are bringing.

On the contrary they may get sick of all this violence rhetoric from the left, and theit stupid behaviour.

But one thing it will do for sure - is get the  white vote out, who see the anti White rhetoric, and also everybody who is scared of the left behaviour, to make sure they don't get into power.

Everything the left is doing and the MSM and Democrats is all backfiring and solidifying Trumps base, and ensure the embattled white vote comes out in force.

tmosley's picture

But nobody cares about being called a racist anymore except white liberal cuckolds.

oldmanofthesee's picture

You're probably right. I was musing about the prospect of getting one more SCOTUS of conservative leanings. They overturn Roe v Wade. Do we get to rip out all the Margaret Sanger statues and buildings?

Because the Repuke Party has really helped the average white goy  out so much since 1967/sarc
