Huh?: Pelosi says abortion is ‘sacred’ because of my Catholic religion

Nancy Pelosi was asked an interesting question about abortion on Thursday, and her answer was, well, fascinating.

According to TheBlaze.com:

The Weekly Standard's John McCormack tripped up Democrat Congresswoman Nanci Pelosi last week with a question about her 2012 claim that Obamacare would "lower everyone's rates." And it looks like he got her on Thursday with a question regarding condemned murderer Kermit Gosnell and Rep. Pelosi's disapprovel of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months of pregnancy (with exceptions for when he life of the mother is at risk).

McCormack asked the California Congresswoman how she reconciles her professed disgust for Gosnell with her condemnation of a bill that would prohibit abortionists from terminating the life of a child moments before birth.

McCormack's question:

"What is the moral difference between what the doctor did to a baby born alive at 23 weeks and aborting her moments before birth?"

…and here's the Congresswoman's "answer"…

"You are probably enjoying that question a lot.  I can see you savoring it.  But let me just tell you this:  What was done in Philadelphia was reprehensible and everybody condemned it.  For them to decide to disrespect a judgment a woman makes about her reproductive health is reprehensible."

"Next question."

"What's the moral difference between 26 weeks elective abortion and killing of that same infant born alive?  This is the issue…" McCormack fired back at Pelosi.

"This is not the issue," She shot back. "They are saying that there's no abortion -- make it a federal law there be no abortion in our count riff.  You are taking the extreme case.  You are taking the extreme case, and what I'm saying to you is what happened in Philadelphia was reprehensible, and I -- not going to have the conversation with you, because you obviously have an agenda.  You are not interested in having an answer, but I respond to do you to the extent I'm going to respond to you, but I want to tell you something, as a mother of five children, my oldest child is 6 years old the day by brought my fifth child home from the hospital as a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this.  I don't think it should have anything to do with politics."

Watch the exchange below…

"She's insane," Stu said after hearing the audio.

"No place in politics, when why are you discussing it at all?" Glenn added.

"Her church has the opposite stance as she does and yet it's sacred ground to her as a practicing Catholic. What?" Pat continued.

"If it's inside in the body, it's abortion.  If it's outside the body, it's reprehensible and murder.  What is the moral difference there?" Glenn asked after hearing Pelosi's so-called "stance" on the matter.

Of course, Pelosi never clarified and never will…

The only moral difference is self-imposed blindness.

...if Pelosi's stance on Gosnell and abortion isn't bizarre enough, wait until you what else she was up to this week.

Trust us...you HAVE to see this:

Pelosi, Sebelius sing the Supremes\' \"Stop! In the Name of Love\"

Yes, that is a video of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius singing and dancing to the Supremes "Stop in the Name of Love."

You're welcome.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.
