Despite Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi being in office for over three decades, she has finally deemed that the portraits of Speakers who served in the Confederacy be removed. She made the following statement:
“Ahead of tomorrow’s Juneteenth observances, the portraits of four previous Speakers who served in the Confederacy have been removed from the walls of the U.S. Capitol under the supervision of House Clerk Cheryl Johnson. The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. Allowing men who embody the bigotry and racism of the Confederacy to be honored within them sets back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry wherever it appears.”
Why now, Nancy?
Yet more pathetic virtue signalling which is 100% based on the politics of identity and zero to do with those she claims to be helping. And we thought the kneeling with Kente scarves was nauseating enough…who knew that race politics had seasons? Anyone would think an election was around the corner??
We say again, even if one hated Trump, how can anyone think the Democrats are a credible alternative with pathetic stunts like this?
