Well, Well, Well – Nancy Pelosi Tries to Cover Up Her Family’s Confederate Past

By

Nancy Pelosi is fully onboard with the new liberal kick of destroying Confederate statues, despite the fact that that means abandoning our own history as a nation.

Or, maybe that’s precisely what Pelosi wants. For everyone to ignore history, at least her own family’s history.

Last week, Pelosi sanctimoniously declared:

“The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible. If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately.”

But it turns out that Pelosi’s own family were, you guessed it, Confederate-sympathizers.

Pelosi’s father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., was mayor of Baltimore during the late 1940s and 1950s. You know, in Maryland, one of the leading states of the Confederacy.

During his time in office, D’Alesandro dedicated a statue depicting Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the top leaders of the Confederacy, with the following words:

“Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”

That statue was recently taken down by Baltimore’s current mayor, Catherine Pugh.

But what’s interesting here is that I haven’t heard Pelosi call out her own father. Nor did Pelosi herself ever do anything about those Confederate images in Congress when SHE was Speaker of the House.

The reason, of course, is the inconvenient truth that the Confederacy and the slave-owning South were dominated and led by DEMOCRATS.

The Confederate legacy in America is the Democratic Party’s own legacy.

But, that doesn’t play well when you’re trying to label a Republican president as a racist bigot.
