Yesterday morning House minority leader Nancy Pelosi showed up on Morning Joe for the Inauguration. It must have been very cold in the studio because her face is utterly rigid and her eyelids were frozen in wide open position.
Scarborough asks her:
But how do Democrats who have the right policies economically. in their minds, how do they reconnect with a middle America who feels like sometimes they are looked down upon because of their faith or their values?
Her answer shows why Democrats have become a minority party at the state and local level and how they managed to lose traditional Democrat strongholds like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania this year.
PELOSI: Well, thank you for asking that question because the cultural issue, and especially when it comes to rural America, the isolation that some people feel there, plus they don’t think that Democrats are people of faith, when the fact is that we are. And I say, this will be a little not in keeping with the spirit of the day of unity, but I say they pray in church on Sunday and prey on people the rest of the week, and while we’re doing the Lord’s work by ministering to the needs of God’s creation they are ignoring those needs which is to dishonor the God who made them.
It is difficult to know where to begin with this.
Let’s name one Commandment that the Democrat party is in favor of? Just one. Honoring God. Your parents? Not killing? Coveting? Adultery? Theft? Seriously. Every single Commandment stands in stark and direct contrast to a stated principle of the Democrat party platform.
The idea that destroying jobs and carrying out a concerted war on faith in the public square is “the Lord’s work.” Pelosi, herself, is a Catholic who has been excommunicated latae sententiae, because of her advocacy of abortion and homosexual marriage. This is hardly the hallmark of doing “the Lord’s work.”
It is also rather stunning to actually hear the actual leader of the Democrat party, now that Barack Obama is an ex-president, condemn most of America and hold her own party up as an exemplar of holiness.
