Nancy Pelosi yet again reveals Democrats’ disdain for average Americans

Do Democrats have contempt for Americans who aren’t part of the richest 1% or don’t live in cities on the coast?

This query comes after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made an outrageous comment during a recent Oxford Union debate, calling those who may see themselves as part of the populist movement just “poor souls who are looking for some answers.”

“We’ve given [answers] to them, but they’re blocked by some of their views on guns. They have the three Gs: guns, gays, God,” huffed the the 84-year-old Pelosi. “That would be a woman’s right to choose — and the cultural issues cloud some of their reception of an argument that really is in their interest.”

How utterly condescending, albeit not surprising considering the elitist bubble that Pelosi — who, along with her husband, is worth north of $100 million — lives in.

She’s clearly saying, in other words, that if these “poor souls” weren’t so brainwashed and would listen to the way Democrats would like them to think, they would see that the Democratic Party and its agenda is a perfect fit for them.

They’re just too dumb or delusional to realize it.

The sanctimonious sentiment brings back memories of Barack Obama’s perspective on struggling working-class voters during a private fundraiser in San Francisco back in 2008.

“They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,” Obama said in comments he didn’t know were being recorded.

He would later apologize, but only because there was an election to be won that year.

But let’s be clear: Obama meant every word.

We hear this pious perspective again and again from those who claim to represent working men and women.

Another case in point: One could argue that a critical turning point in the 2016 presidential election occurred when Hillary Clinton called half of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables.”

“You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton declared in a September 2016 speech to donors in New York, which included Barbra Streisand. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that.”

Hillary went on to lose, of course, all thanks to working-class voters in Rust Belt states like Wisconsin and Michigan who went for Trump.

Make no mistake: These aren’t gaffes. These are pompous Democrats telling us what they truly believe.

The party of the little guy has become the party of coastal elites.

The numbers back it up: Of the richest 10 congressional districts in the country, all are represented by Democrats.

History has suggested the guillotine solution for situations like this.

And the fact that more than half of the Reps think that way does not help us poor deplorables either. Trump and Co watch down on the people in just the same way. They vote for Ukraine and for Israel. Just like our rep representative. Although most of the time, he does the right thing, in the major cases, he votes with the super rich. I heard he lives on an island before the coast, an island for himself and his family. What if we obliged our politicians to live in a small apartment or house in the poorest neighborhood they represent, with the small income of these people and no benefits? May be they would open their eyes and wake up from their bubble.

I don’t think having wealth necessarily means you take a condescending view towards the poor and working class. Trump does not. The issue is whether you dismiss the people as being misguided unintelligents, as Pelosi, Hillary and Obama do, and believe you and the wealthy liberals you associate with have superior beliefs that the "less enlightened" must be ruled by.

The goal has always been Kommie Central Planning. Maximize the suffering of the populace while a few immune gloating concentration camp guards inflict the terror for their Inca gods.

Speaker Johnson is pretty much in that camp now...or always was.
