Unhinged: Pelosi Endorses “Collateral Damage”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appeared to endorse the harassment and threats made against supporters of  President Trump and his policies during an interview in NYC.

Nancy Pelosi supports ‘collateral damage’ against those who disagree with Democrats.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said over the weekend that her preferred economic policies would entail “collateral damage” on certain groups.

Pelosi was going back and forth on climate change and its connection to job creation and prosperity with Paul Krugman, an economist and New York Times columnist. After finishing a sweeping discussion about those topics, Pelosi made the case that liberal policies would entail “collateral damage for some others who do not share our view” but ultimately help the country.

“We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi did not specify who would be the damaged party, but on the issue of climate, Democrats have long railed against energy companies and promoted so-called clean energy alternatives. More

Exactly what does she mean by “collateral damage?” Is she advocating violence following her fellow progressives like Obama, Holder, Jarrett, Waters, Booker etc? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
