At what point does this become child abuse? Is it emotionally healthy to teach your children their race is inferior to others? Should Nancy Pelosi be allowed to teach her grandson his white skin is something to be ashamed of?
Townhall has the story:
On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) spoke for nearly eight hours in support of immediately passing a “clean” DACA bill with no Republican provisions for immigration reform. While many mainstream news outlets lauded Pelosi’s speech for setting a House record for the longest continuous speech given there since 1909, several failed to report on some bizarre comments that the top Democrat made while telling a story about her grandson’s sixth birthday party.
In her anecdote, Pelosi recounted how her grandson made a birthday wish to have “brown skin and brown eyes” like one of his friends, who was from Guatemala. Pelosi described this occurrence as “so beautiful” that it was “a proud day for me.”
REP. PELOSI: I’m reminded of my own grandson. He’s, um, Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American. He is a mix. But he looks more like the other side of the family, shall we say? And he is, he’s, um — and when he had his, um, sixth — fifth birthday — sixth birthday, he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, who’s from Guatemala, and he has beautiful tan skin and beautiful brown eyes and the rest.
“And, um, this was such a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said: Did you make a wish?
And he [Antonio] said: Yes, I made a wish.
And he said: Well what is your wish?
He [Antonio] said: I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.
So beautiful. So beautiful. The beauty is in the mix. The face of the future for our country is all-American, and that has many versions.”
At some point, you would hope America would wake up and put a stop to the crazy. When we make it acceptable to use children to further political agendas, we’ve gone way too far.
