Nancy Pelosi and the Hard-Left Should All Resign
Feb 6, 2020
Most Americans have already heard about or seen the actions of Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when she ripped up President Trump's State of the Union speech.
The President had just ended his speech on a high note, extolling a vision of America as a free country. He was still in the camera's frame when Pelosi ripped up his speech in the most ostentatious way possible. In fact, video has shown that she pre-ripped it while he was talking. It was premeditated.
I was flabbergasted and shocked, as many undoubtedly were.
Pelosi's speech ripping was especially shocking because President Trump had ended his speech with such uplifting words; words that one would think any patriotic American could resonate with. Thus, her actions were even more jarring. The graphic above demonstrates the difference. Click on the image to see a larger view.
Her actions brought immediate criticism, including calls for her resignation. Writing in The Hill, in the article "Nancy Pelosi should resign," Jonathan Turley stated:

Nancy Pelosi and her hard-left Democrat colleagues have seriously harmed America with their attempts to deconstruct the principles upon which America was founded. Hollywood, academia, hard-left Democrats, and the "mainstream" media have created an unholy alliance, and today millions of Americans have been miseducated and misinformed about the real story of America: the country that has articulated and demonstrated the timeless values of freedom.
It's time for Nancy Pelosi and the radical members of the hard-left to all resign. It's time for the leftist nightmare to be debunked.
