Doesn’t Nan know that ‘thinking’ is a European colonialist construct meant to suppress the authentic expressions of outrage by indigenous millennial gender studies activists?
Here’s Pelosi’s latest futile effort to convince the Bolshies not to run their radical clown car off a bridge and take the party with them. It’ll work as well as her attempts to stop her party from being defined by impeachment.
“What works in San Francisco does not necessarily work in Michigan,” Pelosi said at a roundtable of Bloomberg News reporters and editors on Friday. “What works in Michigan works in San Francisco — talking about workers’ rights and sharing prosperity.”
“Remember November,” she said. “You must win the Electoral College.”
The Electoral College? Doesn’t she know that the Electoral College is a European colonialist construct meant to suppress the authentic expressions of outrage by indigenous millennial gender studies activists?
“As a left-wing San Francisco liberal I can say to these people: What are you thinking?” Pelosi said. “You can ask the left — they’re unhappy with me for not being a socialist.”
Thinking? That’s neo-liberal talk.
The speaker’s concerns reflect those of many Democratic leaders and donors who believe that left-wing policies will alienate swing voters and lead to defeat.
Pelosi also expressed worries about voters’ reactions to the Green New Deal, which Sanders and Warren also support, that calls for radical, rapid reductions in carbon emissions. “There’s very strong opposition on the labor side to the Green New Deal because it’s like 10 years, no more fossil fuel. Really?” she said.
Pelosi said Democrats must stick with pay-as-you-go rules to avoid adding to the debt, a point of contention with left-leaning figures who want to permit more deficit spending for ambitious liberal priorities.
“We cannot just keep increasing the debt,” she said.
We’ve gotten to the point where Pelosi is the one saying this.
Pelosi added that she doesn’t understand the race to the left among some candidates, because “Bernie and Elizabeth own the left, right? Is anybody going to out-left them?”
Beto sure tried. But now they’ve gotta outleft each other.
