Nancy Pelosi sounds a little nervous about the 2020 election.
She’s piling on the melodrama, claiming that “civilization as we know it is at stake in the next election.”
Is she really talking about the future of the Democratic party?
The Daily Caller reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: ‘Civilization As We Know It Is At Stake’ In 2020 Election
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday that “civilization as we know it is at stake” during the 2020 presidential election.
Pelosi made the comments during a speech at Northeastern University in Boston.
“My view is that civilization as we know it is at stake,” the speaker said about the upcoming election. “It’s about everything. It’s about America. We ask God to bless America.”
Pelosi has said this before, claiming during a town hall late in 2019 that “civilization as we know it is at stake in the next election.”
This is the recent time she said it:

The Washington Examiner has more on Pelosi’s recent comments:
“We are a nation of immigrants who are being denigrated. And every newcomer to America with hopes, dreams, and aspirations for a better life for their children and the future — those are American traits. And those newcomers have made America more American.”
The speaker employed similar rhetoric just prior to Trump’s impeachment in December, saying she did not want to “even contemplate” a Trump reelection. “Let’s not even contemplate that,” she said in response to a question during a CNN Townhall. “Civilization as we know it today is at stake in the next election, and certainly our planet.”
During her talk Monday, Pelosi also lamented how a woman had not yet been elected to the presidency and articulated her belief that the Democratic Party should nominate women or racial minorities in the future.
She doesn’t sound very confident in her party, does she?
