Nancy Pelosi utterly and completely humiliates herself on national television, AGAIN, with her Marie Antoinette moment! Twitter lit up with criticism from both the right as well as the left that excoriated Pelosi for her latest stunt she pulled from her posh million dollar abode! She was featured on the James Corden show that nobody watches. The love fest - isn’t Nancy Pelosi so wonderful - was how the Hollywood elite cozy up to the leftwing globalist liberals in Washington DC. So Corden has got Nancy Pelosi on his show, from her posh home, and they thought it would be fun to show how Nancy Pelosi is weathering the coronavirus pandemic, as well as to dish out together on President Trump. And so, there is Pelosi, in her million-dollar kitchen, standing in front of $24,000 double fridge. She shows off her lavish gourmet ice-cream collection. They both thought it would be fun to show off how much ice cream she had in her freezer. After the interview, Pelosi tweeted out: "We all have found our ways to keep our spirits up during these trying times. Mine just happens to fill up my freezer."
We didn’t have to wait long before twitter blew up with some pretty angry reactions, noting how pathetically tone-deaf the whole scenario was given how many people are right now struggling financially during the quarantine measures. For example, “While Nancy Pelosi sits in her ivory tower in San Francisco, eating $13 dollar a pint ice cream out of her $24,000 fridge, she is cheering on Democrats for blocking coronavirus relief aid that has so far been distributed to 1.3 million small businesses that is about to run out.” That was from the Republican National Committee, which of course is just perfect, a perfect contrast between the Marie Antoinette of the nation and the people suffering on the streets! Even some on the left had a major problem with this. The ultra-liberal Bernie Sanders supporter Mehid Hasan tweeted out: “Millions of Americans are waiting for crappy one-time 1200 dollar checks that Congress passed before they went on holiday, and the Speaker is on a late night comedy program showing off how much ice cream she has stored in her freezer.” Glenn Greenwald tweeted out that Pelosi’s two huge refrigerators by themselves cost more than many people make in a year! “It is so revealing that the politician Dems adore most is one of the richest members of Congress. Pelosi has been so rich for so long that she can't see how tone-deaf this is. It's her normal” James Woods, one of my favorites on twitter, he tweeted out “Her two refrigerators together cost $24,000 for her specialty chocolate ice creams, but she hates the small business owners of America. “Let them eat cake.” Another one wrote “Pelosi has more money than the entire populations of some housing projects in the US. Is showing off your 15 flavor ice cream collection in extremely expensive appliances meant to be reassuring to people fighting 15 bill collectors during a pandemic & struggling to buy food?”
What you are seeing here is a political disaster unfolding; like we have talked about with the New York Times and their deliberate attempt at burying the Joe Biden sexual allegations scandal, if this were Trump, you KNOW this politically embarrassing situation would be all over the news, with headlines like ‘As Americans starve, an out of touch president indulges!’ But because it is the darling of the political left, Nancy Pelosi, Nancy the Ripper Pelosi, she gets away with it! Go ahead and so a google search, and you will find all the major news media outlets completely silent over this! It is blowing up all over the conservative cybersphere on YouTube and elsewhere, but the mainstream Marxist media does not even recognize or acknowledge what even leftists can say as one of the biggest political blunders, embarrassments perpetrated during a national lockdown with skyrocketing unemployment. This is, of course, after the Democrats blocked the latest spending bill. But as much as the media tries to ignore it, it is all for naught! The rise of the alternative media has assured that these stories that the media was always able to successfully bury and hide from our sights before the rise of the alternative media are now made known for all to see! We are even getting help from the far-left in this, the Bernie Sanders left, who have no love lost for corporatist globalists like Nancy The Ripper Pelosi.
I think this political embarrassment really highlights the way in which politics has shifted of late. I think the point needs to be stressed how all throughout the Western world, politics has shifted away from a 20th century model of political concern, which revolved around economic or class conflicts to a 21st century model of political concern, which involves a focus on culture, nation, and identity. In the 20th century model, the political concerns centered around economic or class conflicts, which involved things like, are we going to raise taxes or are we going to lower taxes? Are we going to increase regulations or are we going to de-regulate? Is it better to privatize government agencies and services, or should they remain public and perhaps even be increased? When all is said and done, this is a politics of the middle class, a politics that pits the rich vs the poor as such a pitting is centered on the middle class, and in such a political climate. Within this model, the Democrat Party was successfully depicted as the party of the working man while the Republicans were all for bankers and the rich! What scholars have noticed over the last 5 years or so, is that THAT political paradigm has collapsed and in its place, a NEW politics has emerged; what is often referred to as post-security politics. That is what we call it here ‘post-security politics’ where populations are increasingly turning towards concerns over immigration, and culture, and national sovereignty, and economic security, all of which are being exacerbated by a globalist ruling class elite. In other words, concerns about border security and economic security and cultural security are all ignored as racist and bigoted by a ruling elite who see borders as unnecessary in a globalist society. They see free trade as the greatest good even if it costs us tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs. They mock and ridicule our traditional culture and customs that gave us a sense of identity and meaning!
And so, the new politics is no longer a politics of the left vs the right, or even conservatives vs liberals. The new politics is nationalist vs globalists, the people vs the ruling class, traditionalists vs secular progressives. And Nancy the Ripper Pelosi just stumbled BIG TIME over the capstone of this new politics. She came across as Marie Antoinette telling the commoners to shut up and eat their cake. But as it was once reported of Marie Antoinette, Pelosi has forgotten that in times of trouble, it is of the utmost importance not to lose one’s head!
