On Monday, another event unfolded showing the Left is willing to eat its own if necessary in order to advance its political agenda.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, speaking with Democratic U.S. Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman at College Track San Francisco, a program to expand college access for illegal immigrants, initially elicited applause by asserting, “Our nation’s Dreamers are an inspiration to all of us,” she said. “With their courage and their patriotism. They embody the promise of America … of the American Dream … Make America dream again.”
But that didn’t last, as a group brandishing banner and signs started chanting, “We undocumented youth demand a clean bill. … We undocumented youth demand that you do not sell out our community and our values. …We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump.” That led to Pelosi being shouted down by immigrants chanting, “We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid.”
The protesters were reportedly irate that Pelosi had conferred with President Trump regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). The protesters mocked Pelosi, “Democrats created an out-of-control deportation machine. Democrats are not the resistance to Trump,” prompting her to try to pacify them by smiling, “You’ve had your say, and it’s beautiful to our ears,” but when they wouldn’t stop, she ultimately snapped at the protesters, “Just stop it now” and “It’s clear you don’t want any answers. It’s clear,” before she exited the room.
