As the debate over the national anthem protests has heated up, Nancy Pelosi has predictably come out on the side of those disrespecting the flag and the National Anthem!
During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this past Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tried to defend former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but it didn’t quite go as planned, ‘The Daily Caller’ reported.
NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Pelosi what she would like to see President Donald Trump do in response to the protests.
“I’d like him to do what he said he would do when he ran and was inaugurated to bring people together. He should see this as an opportunity,” Pelosi stated.
Then things got weird.
“Somebody, Colin Komper, Komper, Kompernick (sic) doing what he did, he said, ‘this flag enables me to do this, this anthem enables me to do this, this is about freedom of expression,’” Pelosi stammered.
“Kompernick?” That’s definitely one for the record books. You would think somebody would have coached Pelosi in the pronunciation of Kaepernick’s name before her appearance on the show.
After all, he has been in the news for more than a year. A mispronunciation might have been fine last year when all of this started, but after all this time, there is no reason that Pelosi shouldn’t have the pronunciation figured out by now.
I’d be willing to bet that if a Republican had butchered the pronunciation of Kaepernick like Pelosi did, some liberals would be out there screaming “racism.”
This is just Pelosi’s latest in a long line of public gaffes — and one that isn’t going to be forgotten quickly.
Pelosi, and her fellow Democrats, clearly have no idea what they are talking about. They are just a bunch of opportunists looking to capitalize off of the latest fad.
The Democrats don’t actually care about these protests. They see an opportunity to get a few appearances in on some talk shows and turn sports into another political swamp where they can attempt to divide American even further.
Such craziness! The Democrats have lost their minds!
It became very apparent last week when Democrat Representative Al Green called for official impeachment proceedings because Trump tweeted that the NFL should fire players for disrespecting the national anthem.
On the House floor, Green said, “Mr. Speaker, I rise today and stand at the podium designated for Republicans, But I rise not as a Democrat or a Republican. I rise today, Mr. Speaker, not as a liberal or conservative. Mr. Speaker, I rise today as a proud American, a person who believes in his country, who salutes the flag and says the pledge of allegiance and sings the national anthem. I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to make comments that I never thought I’d have to make in the well of the house of Congress.”
Kaepernick has broken football and cost a LOT of people a LOT of money. The teams, the broadcasters, the parent companies, and the advertisers. Now the owners are getting their noses involved.
How far does this have to go before political correctness takes a back seat to common sense?
