Nancy Pelosi in 2014: Don't Politicize Child Detention Centers
Nancy Pelosi is the greatest Democrat leader who has ever lived. She truly is the content gift that keeps on giving. If you're looking for something to write about, just Google "Pelosi+derp" and you're set.
Kudos to BizPacReview for this grab.
“Well, I hope that while some may have tried to politicize it, I hope that was not the case. This is not about an issue, it’s about a value. We’re here to thank the Border Patrol. “We think they’re doing the best they can under the circumstances … We thank the Department of Defense for what they’re doing, the Department of [Homeland Security]."
Right. Because in 2014, Barack Obama was president (see Immigration Attorney Blames Detention Centers on Obama and Erick Erickson Lays Out How Terrible the Press Has Been on Immigration). Putting kids "in cages" wasn't offensive then. It's only offensive when you show photos of those kids four years later when a Republican is in the White House. Exhibit Q why liberals don't give a damn about children.
So if we shouldn't have politicized the kid "crisis" back in 2014, then we shouldn't politicize it in 2018. If the root of the issue is "the children" then four years shouldn't make a difference. But if the root of the issue is the party in power, then let's politicize the issue.
May Pelosi be Democrat Leader for ever and ever. Amen.
