Tell you something about socialism. When I was younger, in the early 1990s we had neighbors that hosted foreign exchange students every year. It was pretty cool.
You would have a friend from a new country every year. Anyway, one of the times that they had one was from right after the reunification of Germany. Every now and then, they would go to the grocery store with us and this person would just marvel at how much stuff was in this, small town, grocery store.
Nancy Pelosi wants to put us back at that person’s mentality.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is refusing to denounce socialism as the left-wing ideology continues to drive a wedge within the Democratic Party — and as she works to lock down enough support for another term as speaker.
Fox News had requested comment several times — including multiple phone calls to Pelosi’s office — with inquiries about whether she opposed the ideology and whether she would allow any self-described socialists elected in the Democratic caucus to hold leadership positions in the House of Representatives.
The article goes on to state the following:
During a press conference on Friday, Pelosi acknowledged that there was a “difference of opinion” among members of her caucus as a rift between moderates and progressives appears to have expanded following the 2020 election.
In a 60 Minutes interview in April 2016, when asked about how she would stand up to the socialists on the left within Congress, Pelosi said, “That’s like five people.”
“By and large, whatever orientation [House Democrats] came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream,” Pelosi said.
“This is an ongoing theme of the Republicans,” Pelosi said about Republicans raising the alarm that Democrats were becoming socialists. She added, “However, I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party.”
