Deranged mobs of leftists have begun pulling down various statues.
Nancy Pelosi wants to make sure she is on the right side of the mob, so she is proposing the removal of a bunch of Confederate statues from the Capitol Building.
What she fails to mention, is that her own father dedicated a Confederate statue when he was the mayor of Baltimore.
Nancy Pelosi Silent on Own Father Who Oversaw Dedication of Confederate Statue
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who on Wednesday demanded the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U.S. Capitol, has remained silent on her father’s role in overseeing the dedication of the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument while serving as Baltimore’s mayor in 1948.
Pelosi this week formally requested the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U.S. Capitol, dismissing them as “monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end.” Her demand comes as angry protesters across the nation take matters into their own hands, vandalizing — and in some cases, beheading — statues and monuments memorializing the Civil War era and beyond…
“Monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end are a grotesque affront to these ideals,” she continued. “Their statues pay homage to hate, not heritage. They must be removed.”
However, her father, Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., oversaw the dedication of such a statue in Baltimore’s Wyman Park — the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument — as mayor of the city in 1948.
Funny how she fails to ever mention that, huh?
Why hasn't Nancy Pelosi condemned her own father for dedicating Confederate statues in 1948 when he was Mayor of Baltimore?
Isn't that the new standard the left holds everyone else to?

New rules. It’s in her blood. She has to resign.

Such typical hypocrisy from Pelosi.
