‘Then So Be It’: Nancy Pelosi on Potential ‘Collateral Damage’ to People Who Oppose the Dem Agenda

During her interview with New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-N.Y.) said there would be acceptable losses for people who are not for the Democratic agenda.

Pelosi and Krugman were discussing the Democrats’ plan for winning in the upcoming midterm election and what they’ll do once they’re in power.

“I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in country,” Pelosi said.

“And if there is some collateral damage for others who do not share our view, then so be it,” she added. “But it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”

Watch the video below:

Pelosi has upped her rhetoric as the midterm elections draw nearer.

After Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as an associate judge of the Supreme Court, she said the Senate Republicans had done “violence” against the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“The conduct of the Senate Republican Majority did violence to the reputation of both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Supreme Court. We must proceed in a judicious manner to set the record straight and ensure that this never happens again,” Pelosi said in her statement.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton further said people cannot be civil to the GOP.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again,” Clinton added. “But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

Nancy Pelosi means that if we don’t follow the liberal Democrats agenda the next steps is to destroy all conservatives in what we believe in. They are anti-God anti-guns, freedom of speech and religion. Vote Republican or our nation will become another Valenzuela.

Was she watching the same hearings, etc. that I was? I believe it was the Dems who made up the mobs! And as for Hillary’s comment about being civil to those who don’t share their values… she’s right, we do not share their enthusiasm for killing babies!

It is so hard to understand why anyone that has a HS diploma cannot see through this. If nothing else, open borders and supporting citizens from other countries should never be a supported agenda. Period. That alone should turn everyone away. You want to donate money to those people in… Read more »
