There seems to be a theme among the Democrats of this great country, and it’s not a pretty one. In fact, it’s downright disturbing.
The liberal edge of the political spectrum in the United States is obsessed with violence. They are either threatening their political opponents with it, using the threat of it to energize their base, or, worse still, glorifying and fantasizing it.
Oh, and let’s not forget how often they project this obsession on their political opponents, either.
The latest evidence of the left’s fetish for violence comes to us from none other than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” during footage seen for the first time taken on January 6, 2021 by Alexandra Pelosi, her mother, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), said she would happily go to jail for punching President Donald Trump if he came to the Capitol.
During his speech on January 6, Trump said, “And after this, we’re going walk down, and I’ll be there with you. We’re going walk down to the Capitol.”
This caused Pelosi to lose it.
Pelosi said, “Tell him if he comes here, we’re going to the White House.”
A staff member said, “The Secret Service said they have dissuaded him from coming to Capitol Hill. They told him they don’t have the resources to protect him here. So at the moment, he is not coming, but that could change.”
Here is where things get really disturbing.
Pelosi said, “I hope he comes. I want to punch him out.”
She added, “We’re waiting for this, for trespassing on the Capitol grounds. I want to punch him out, and I’m going to go to jail, and I’m going to be happy.”
This penchant for disturbing rhetoric is nothing new, but the recently released video has reiterated the left’s unhinged attitude once again.
The moment was soon trending on Twitter.
“I hope he comes, I’m going to punch him out … I’m going to punch him out, I’m going to go to jail, and I’m going to be happy.”
