• Pelosi Standing O: ‘The Swamp’ Celebrates Together Sunday Night at Kennedy Center

    Surge Summary: The radical Left gathered in D.C. Sunday PM for the Kennedy Center Honors – where Nancy Pelosi received a standing ovation from assembled cultural, Hollywood elites.

    [Sunday] night the Kennedy Center Honors were held in Washington, D.C.  The annual event recognizing entertainment leaders has taken place for more than four decades.

    Like most of these televised award shows, it is just another opportunity for left-wing Hollywood and cultural elites to pat themselves on the back and celebrate their smugness.  But at the Kennedy Center, they get to hobnob with Washington’s political class.

    If you needed more evidence of Hollywood’s left-wing bias, consider this excerpt from a Washington Post report on last night’s soiree:

    “But the audience’s most boisterous reaction came when [the Kennedy Center chairman] acknowledged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).  The announcement of her name drew a standing ovation and a magnitude of sustained applause that appeared to startle her.”

    And why is the left awarding the speaker with such adulation?  Because she is trying to depose the duly-elected president of the United States, the world’s biggest villain in Hollywood’s eyes.

    Meanwhile, Pelosi has been playing up her piety, insisting that she regularly prays for the president.  But where was her concern for the faithful when the Obama Administration tried to force the Little Sisters of the Poor to subsidize abortion?

    While Pelosi insists that she doesn’t hate anyone, she is taking her direction from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the most extreme elements of her caucus.

    Within hours of AOC’s September 22nd tweet shaming the speaker for her inaction on impeachment, Pelosi made the choice to move forward with a process that is tearing the country apart, even though it has no chance of doing anything but that.

    There is a huge wound being inflicted on the country because of the left’s hatred.  Nancy Pelosi could have put the country first by resisting the radical left.  Instead, she chose to empower the left’s hatred.

    Case in point:  Rep. Al Green (D-TX) was on MSNBC this weekend saying he wants to impeach President Trump for . . . wait for it  . . . slavery!  Green said:

    “I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin.  We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion.”
