Nancy Pelosi Personifies Democrat Hypocrisy

pelosiHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on tape getting her hair styled at a San Francisco salon last Monday afternoon while not wearing a mask and while salons were currently closed by local orders. Pelosi claims to have been set up by the salon’s owner, something even uber liberal CNN host Don Lemon wasn’t buying. The optics for Pelosi as one of the faces of the Democrat party were horrible and deserved to be shared far and wide.

But she is not alone. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney was photographed at a Maryland restaurant while dining establishments in his town remain shuttered because of the coronavirus. Now, the Mayor wasn’t breaking any law as diners in Maryland are reported to be allowed to serve guests in a limited capacity, but he has also been a vocal proponent of social distancing and mask wearing, actions he clearly wasn’t practicing in the photograph. The photograph went viral, forcing the Mayor to tweet a half-hearted apology.

Speaking of social gatherings, some Democrats have gone to the extreme in their efforts to control them. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell has gone so far as to ban all social gatherings inside and outside, including in private homes! But that doesn’t seem to stop his Democrat brethren like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo from being repeatedly spotted not wearing a mask while demanding that New Yorkers wear them.   Or how about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s trips to the gym? His flimsy excuse for doing so? He stated that he needed “to exercise to be able to stay healthy and make decisions.” But to hell with the health of the rest of New Yorkers, right, Mr. de Blasio? Oh, and your decisions need a lot of work, too.

It appears preening Democrat leaders just cannot help themselves from keeping their hair well-coiffed. Remember literally watching your own and your neighbor’s hair grow during the early months of the shutdown? Or how about the various facial hair styles sported by your colleagues on Zoom calls? You could not find an open barber shop or hair salon and those stylists who dared to make house calls were rounded up and punished in some cities.

That did not stop Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot from getting her hair styled in early April. You see, in the Mayor’s estimation, instead of commiserating with her suffering constituents, it was more important that she, in her opinion as the “public face” of Chicago, look good for the cameras and social media outlets. Tell that to the first responders who pulled 24-hour shifts in the early stages of the pandemic, Madam Mayor.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker’s wife, M.K. Muenster-Pritzker, left Illinois for the family farm in Florida to avoid her husband’s stay-at-home order, while the rest of Illinoisians had to shelter in place. Life is certainly good when you can escape to your $12.1 million equestrian estate in South Florida, isn’t it, Ms. Muenster-Pritzker?

Democrats talk a good game regarding the seriousness of the pandemic, but their actions tell another story: one set of rules for them as the ruling class and another quite different set for the rest of us. Take a close look at their behavior, because there is no reason to believe that it will change should they acquire power this November.

The fact that she threw a small business person under the bus is disgusting. Only an idiot would believe her BS about being for the little guy.

These examples paint a very clear picture of exactly how “democratic socialism” will work.

Many of the leaders in the Communist Democrat Party are true, selfish misanthropes. They do not take the time, nor do they have any interest, in feeling more empathy for their constituents. If these politicians had any real concerns for the troubles and sufferings of the American public, they wouldn’t be so quick to close schools and businesses before carefully putting themselves in the shoes of the people they are supposedly serving. The hypocrisy of Pelosi and others is merely a symptom of their elitist,
egotistical souls. They are rich in material health but very poor in character.

The funny thing is that most politicians seem oblivious to the laws that apply to everyone else. They get mad when they get called out or as is often the case in Illinois, are surprised when they get sent to jail.

The dictionary definition of hypocrisy is a picture of Pelosi.

It’s universal. They don’t have to live with the health care or social security policies that they’ve passed for the rest of us either. It’s one set of rules for us, and no rules at all for them.

Impeachment is the best to do to her

She gets more “air time” than a lot of other dims. Virtually every one of them is a raving hypocrite. It’s their unofficial credo. If they ever told the truth, sans the socialist/communist bernie-bro crowd, they’d never get elected to anything. The dnc/china propagandizing msm runs cover for them and the low-info crowd remains in the dark to their true agenda.

I would only hope that Americans remember these things come Election Day but sadly the media will never mention it unless they are forced to and will do whatever they can to help these very abusers to stay in power.

Democrats make rules for other people to follow. They don’t have to follow the rules themselves, but you just make darn sure YOU follow them.

It is just beyond my comprehension how any reasonable, thinking person would even CONSIDER voting for the Demonrats who have hijacked the Democrat Party. All I can do is shake my head, and keep repeating, “I am glad I am old.”

This is typical Demoncratic action, demand one thing form those they are supposed to serve and thinking they have the privilege to do as they please. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot couldn’t look good with a bag over her head and has to be the absolute ugliest politician in the country.

…. Nazi Pelosi’s is but one of the legions of the criminally-arrogant faces of the vast, RICO-racketeering, organized-criminal, fascist-Marxist hordes that trade as the “democratic” party. The images are horrible and it’s well deserved they’re being shared far and wide ….

For all to see the contempt, for We The Sovereign American People, of such imbecilic corruptocrats as she — and as deign to rule us.

Oh their behavior will change should they win, only it will become even worse. After all, they are privileged and they are continuously re-elected.

They are all hypocrites…condemning others for doing what they are doing and supporting.

There is a hypothesis that democrats use lock down as a pressure to keep people oppressed and that in that mood the democrat votes will increase. The rage mobs also pressure voters. This will be more obvious as we continue through September and October. However obvious the strategy may be if every person who doesn’t go along and will not be pressured votes, the USA will be OK.
