Issues warning of ‘collateral damage’ for those who don’t agree with Democratic agenda
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has warned Americans there will “collateral damage” for those who don’t vote Democrat.
Speaking at a gathering at the 92nd Street Y in New York, the Senior Dem issued a warning that there will be consequences for those Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party agenda.
Pelosi made the threats during an onstage interview with liberal New York Times writer Paul Krugman.
Krugman, also a Professor of Economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, predicted on the day Donald Trump won the presidency, that the then-new president would trigger “a global recession, with no end in sight.”
Speaking to Krugman, during a long, rambling monologue, in which she stumbled on her words and appeared to lose her train of thought, Pelosi said:
“We have to have total clarity about what we do when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage …
“Whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate …
“I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”
According to Breitbart, it’s not clear what Pelosi meant by “collateral damage.”
Although, Democrats have advocated ostracizing and even prosecuting those who do not share their views on climate change.
Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), have also targeted Trump administration officials for harassment, and Republicans around the country have complained of intimidation and assault on the campaign trail in the run-up to the midterm elections.
On Monday, Pelosi told an audience at Harvard that Democrats would win the election, and the only question was whether it would be a “wave” or a “tsunami.”
Pelosi would likely return as speaker of the House if her party wins a majority.
