Nancy Pelosi might be getting nervous right about now. When self-described “Democratic socialists” like AOC started to unseat longstanding Democrats, Pelosi and her party began to cave.
House Democrats routinely refuse to rein in radicals in their ranks. It appears their strategy is to embrace doomed plans, hoping to prevent more far-leftists from taking their jobs.
After promising not to impeach Donald Trump, Pelosi led the charge to impeach the president over a phone call. Pelosi and House Democrats refused to reprimand members like Ilhan Omar, who was outed over anti-Israel comments.
But all that pandering to the left has done nothing to help Pelosi’s party. In fact, even the Speaker herself is in danger of losing her seat… to a leftist:
Even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is not safe from the “cancelation” mobs, it turns out, as she discovered this weekend when she became the target of a progressive effort to oust her from her long-held seat in the House of Representatives…
Pelosi is the target of an attack from the left and will face Shahid Buttar in the general election in November. Buttar is, like many left-leaning insurgent candidates, a Democratic socialist… He is also an immigrant and a Muslim and wears his hair in a “man-bun.”
Critics have noted the irony of Pelosi’s current predicament. She allowed her party to slip further and further left, hoping to appease radical members and socialists. Instead, she is in danger of losing her own seat to a leftist.
That might be the kind of gratitude progressives show to their liberal allies.
Over recent years, longstanding moderate Democrats have been facing political extinction. Radical leftists have targeted them, calling out these Democrats for being rich, white, establishment politicians. Namely, part of the problem radicals want to “fix.”
The response from members of Congress like Pelosi has been weak-willed attempts at placating the left, including her unwillingness to condemn recent riots and vandalism. That has not been a winning strategy, as we see leftists continue to gun for people like Pelosi and her allies.
Far-left candidates have tried to take the seats of numerous establishment Democrats, especially those who were so desperate to impeach Trump.
Instead of working with the president and Republicans, scoring wins for their districts, Pelosi and company decided to waffle between playing games in Congress and entertaining radicals.
Now, it’s come back to haunt her.
- After years of trying to placate the radical left, Pelosi is facing a far-left challenger.
- A self-described socialist is trying to unseat her from her long-held CA seat.
- This comes as moderate Democrats face increasing pressure from up-and-coming socialists.
