Pelosi: Every Statue in America – Founders Included – Should be Subject to Review for Removal

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s virtue signaling is a danger to America.

During a disturbing interview with the Washington Post on Thursday, Pelosi was asked about how the United States should deal with the issue of the Founding Fathers since they were slave owners.

“We have a list of grievances that are part of the early years of our country, and we do not want that to be continued by glorifying any of the people who perpetrated those injustices,” Pelosi replied, adding that she thinks there’s a far more peaceful way to erase the Democrats’ long history of oppressing the Civil Rights of minorities for generations.

“Have a review in terms of let’s take it down safely so that we’re not hurting anybody when the statue comes down or costing more money to get rid of it or get rid of the defacing of something that maybe shouldn’t have been,” Pelosi said.

Speaker Pelosi, dressed in traditional pantsuit sans Kente scarf, said we should “subject everything to scrutiny.”

“I’m all for it. Let’s review this. Why are we glorifying the sins of the past?” she said. “But that doesn’t mean that because Thomas Jefferson or George Washington or others were slave owners that we should undermine what they did for our country. These Confederates — Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens — they committed treason against the United States in the name of slavery. I think that’s a different story.”

“But you know what? Subject everything to scrutiny and make a decision. But I do think we should do it in a safer way rather than a more dangerous way,” Pelosi said, clearly concerned about the public’s perception of the multiple videos of peaceful protesters vandalizing government property.
