People were left reeling after the intensity of the election.
But if they agree on one thing, it is that they do not want America to turn to socialism.
Now, Nancy Pelosi faces major backlash after she said that one word.
The Democrats are facing huge infighting after someone leaked audio of a House caucus phone call.
In this call, Abigail Spanberger – a Democratic U.S. Rep. – stated:
“We lost races we shouldn’t have lost.
Defund police almost cost me my race bc of an attack ad.
Don’t say socialism ever again.
Need to get back to basics.”
Clearly, the Democrats are furious over their recent losses and many of them blame Pelosi for her stance on socialism.
According to Fox News, Pelosi refused to denounce socialism even after repeated phone calls to her office about whether she supports or denies the ideology or whether or not she would allow socialist politicians into leadership positions.
Fox News reported:
“The subject of socialism is apparently becoming a growing concern among Democrats behind closed doors. A leaked recording from a Democratic caucus call showed Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-Va., suggesting that socialism, in addition to “defund the police” rhetoric, were to blame for several congressional defeats as their GOP opponents used the ideology as a bludgeon.
“We want to talk about funding social services, and ensuring good engagement in community policing, let’s talk about what we are for. And we need to not ever use the words ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ ever again,” Spanberger is heard saying in the recording obtained by The Washington Post. “Because while people think it doesn’t matter, it does matter. And we lost good members because of it.”
Pelosi has stated her plan to run for Speaker of the House again, but after recent events, it is unlikely she will win if she does not drop her socialist views.
In addition, Pelosi faced a huge backlash for her views on Twitter, after an article explaining her socialist leanings was released.
Steve Scalise stated:
“Make no mistake: The far left socialists are the ones calling all the shots in the Democrat party now.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw said:
“The leader of the Democrat Party can’t denounce socialism because doing so would be denouncing the platform of her party.”
From defund the police to Medicare for All to the Green New Deal, socialism is at the heart of every radical proposal from the left.
Congresswoman Debbie Lesko stated:
“The fact that Pelosi refuses to denounce socialism to maintain her political power is appalling. Socialism has failed every time, but it has become ingrained in the Democrat party. We cannot let the tragedies caused by socialism happen in our country.”
These politicians, as well as many others, do not want to see socialism in America and are doing all they can to make sure it gains no foothold here.
It doesn’t appear that Pelosi will be budging on her stance any time soon, and that may very well be her downfall.
