Nancy Pelosi Calls For ‘Review’ Of Washington, Jefferson Statues

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called for a ‘review’ to judge whether statues of iconic American figures should be kept in public, refusing to rule out potentially removing statues of founding fathers such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

Pelosi was speaking in a livestream interview with a Washington Post journalist on Thursday.

The establishment Democrat clarified that she differs from mobs of rampaging vandals destroying statues in process terms, claiming that she prefers a legally sanctioned process in which various statues of American men would be removed.

Pelosi was insistent that statues commemorating figures associated with the Confederacy be removed, arguing that they are inseparably linked to slavery. She took a more nuanced position towards individuals who owned slaves when the institution was legal, without expressly ruling out removing statues featuring founding fathers such as Jefferson and Washington.

That doesn’t mean just because Thomas Jefferson or George Washington or others were slaves owners that we should undermine what they did for our country,” Pelosi said. “These Confederates – Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens – they committed treason against the United States in the name of slavery. I think that’s a different story.

I would say, rather than tearing down and defacing, why don’t we just have a review.

The legacies of the men who birthed the United States, transforming thirteen British colonies into a distinct and sovereign nation, are up for “review,” according to the Democrat.

Liberal cultural fanatics have swiftly pivoted from targeting Confederate statues to more mainstream American figures. Elite American cultural institutions have already taken steps to purge the memory of great Americans such as Washington, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt from everyday life, in addition to vandalism attempts targeting Presidents Andrew Jackson and even Abraham Lincoln.

  1. This woman is a menace to America. How can anyone judge a person from 200 plus years ago by today standards.If we remove, change, or destroy our history we are bound to repeat it over and over again. Many of these markers she is threatening are private property, bought and paid for by private citizens, and are on private property. In other words they are not owned by any government title. People that protest, demonstrate, deface, remove, or destroy these items are guilty of trespassing, destruction of private property, and theft, and should be subjected to the fullest extent of the law. Nancy Pelosi is pandering to the trespassers, rioters, demonstrators, minorities, and anyone else in order to gain favorable votes. She no longer serves the USA in anyway shape or form to the Oath of Office she took many years ago, she works on a private agenda of hate and spite against the very fabric of our Constitution, Bill of rights, current laws, and common since. She should no longer be allowed to stay in office.

  2. Pelosi is the one who should be investigated and thrown out of Congress. She is just an old witch who hates Trump and the American people. She is a danger to our country

  3. Pelosi…SHOVE IT! Get your butt back to Washington instead of doing your business by proxy. And keep your grubby paws of OUR statuary. It seems you’ll do anything to get your name in the fake news. Why don’t you do something positive for the mess in your home district. You and your relative gov. are far far far from class acts. I noted he closed all the (Napa?) wineries EXCEPT the one in which he has a monetary interest. I think it’s about time YOU were impeached!
