Speaking at a Democrat National Committee summer meeting on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats need to be ready to “throw a punch for the children” during the 2020 elections.
“For them, it’s about money. They’ll put up any amount of money to protect their investments of degrading the environment and the rest. Guns and all that,” Pelosi said of her Republican opposition.
“So you have to be ready to take a punch. You’ve got to be ready to take a punch. And therefore you have to be ready to throw a punch, for the children! Throw a punch for the children,” she reiterated.
“So are we ready to win? Have we decided that we are going to debate our differences, unified behind our candidates? Are we going to strengthen our majority in the house? To win the United States Senate for the American people?” Pelosi concluded.
Imagine if a Republican leader urged constituents to “throw a punch.” The propagandist media would have a field day shrieking about right-wing violence.
