When you think of Nancy Pelosi being in politics the last 34 years and second in line to the becoming the US President, how does that make you feel? Remember her ripping up Trump’s speech? No class. Too much power. Net worth according to scholarlyoa,com AS OF JANUARY 2020 about $140 million.
Now let’s take Maxine Waters (D. CA). On June 25, 2018 she appeared all over the news in her remarks to her supporters to harass anyone in Trump’s administration ” …”if you see anybody in a department store, in a restaurant at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome…” Why wasn’t she charged with inciting violence? (By the way, she’s been in politics for 30 years. She and second husband live in a palatial mansion worth between $1-4+ million depending on the day and who you talk to.)
Wait for it: Read what happened when someone switched the narrative on Twitter.
Twitter user @CuomoWatch took a portion of the congresswoman’s speech, but altered it slightly to target the Cuomo administration instead of Trump’s Cabinet.
“If you see anybody from the Cuomo Administration in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” the now-viral tweet said.
Democrats, who are obviously not familiar with Waters’ tempestuous tirade, immediately condemned the threatening words, likely assuming the menacing comments were made by Republicans or Trump supporters.
New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) fell for the fake quote, “This is encouraging violence against public officials – plain & simple. Absolutely disgusting. No tolerance for this. Haven’t we learned the lessons from Washington D.C. just weeks ago?”
Former Pete Buttigieg adviser Lis Smith wrote, “Way way way over the line. Especially in light of what happened at the Capitol on Jan 6.”
Democratic New York City Councilwoman Debi Rose reacted by saying, “Really? Did we not learn anything from the Capitol insurrection? We must condemn violence and harassment in any form. #StopTheViolence #MobMentality.”
Democratic City Council Member Keith Powers said, “There are plenty of strong opinions and online angst these days, but there is no place for inciting violence or threatening people. This tweet should be removed ASAP. Full stop.”
Democratic Senator for the 36th District of the New York Senate Jamaal T. Bailey tweeted, “This is more than tonedeaf, especially considering what’s happened in recent days. This is unacceptable and ridiculous. Read the room.”
Democratic member of the New York State Assembly Daniel Rosenthal said, “This is dangerous and unacceptable, especially after what happened in DC. Encouraging this kind of violence is unacceptable.”
Democratic County Executive of Suffolk County Steve Bellone declared, “Democrats and Republicans must denounce this threat of violence against our fellow New Yorkers. After the Capitol riots, I call on @Twitter to ban this account immediately.”
Former Democratic Speaker of the New York City Council Christine Quinn exclaimed, “This is dangerous and outrageous!”
Democratic County Executive of Nassau County Laura Curran was also fooled by the fake quote, “No matter your political party or beliefs, this is completely unacceptable. Nassau County has zero tolerance for hatred and inciting violence.”
Democratic Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl E. Heastie wrote, “This is appalling and dangerous. Encouraging violence must never be tolerated. Shame on whoever is behind this kind of garbage.”
Democratic Assembly Member for the 42nd District of the New York State Assembly Rodneyse Bichotte was duped, “Threatening government officials & their staff is a crime for which there is a ZERO tolerance policy in Brooklyn & anywhere else. I condemn this tweet & the violence it incites, especially following the insurrection we just experienced at the capitol.”
Democratic Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan wrote on Twitter, “This kind of dangerous rhetoric must be called out and condemned by all. Or else we risk repeating the horrendous events of Jan 6th. As leaders, especially in a time of such great challenge, it’s incumbent on all of us to appeal to the ‘better angels of our nature.”
Democratic member of the New York State Senate Todd Kaminsky said, “Completely unacceptable. Haven’t we learned the hard lesson that incitements to violence like this actually result in violence? There is no room for this in our discourse. None.”
Luis A. Miranda, Jr. said, “You don’t like the Governor, you vote him out. After the terrorist attack on our Capitol, threats, of any kind, especially as the right is targeting state capitals, are dangerous. And to target staff? Not cool.”
Democratic Speaker of the New York City Council Corey Johnson stated, “The terrifying events of the last month have shown us more clearly than ever that words have consequences. This sort of targeting and incitement is simply wrong, and totally unacceptable.”
Democrats finally condemn Maxine Waters’ dangerous rhetoric, two years later, and only after they thought it was a Republican saying it.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”

“A revolution without a prior reformation would collapse or become a totalitarian tyranny. A reformation means that masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won’t act for change but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution”

“[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. […] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.”

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. “I won the election by a landslide.” Donald R. Trump.
Hey Steelhead, here is another often-repeated lie for you to consider:
“The United States government is a democracy.”
WOW!!! the thought really got to you I must be right.
Pelosi, and Waters are two great examples of the creatures that live in the swamp it’s hard to believe Americans believe what they spew.
Live in a swamp. You are a really nasty person. Crawl back under your rock.
Such a temper tantrum, are you really an adult?
