Pelosi Breaks With DCCC, Endorses Pro-lifer

Posted on 03/02/2018 5:28:55 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27

Nancy Pelosi is about to lose some progressive friends after deciding to endorse Rep. Dan Lipinski in his re-election bid in Illinois's 3rd congressional district. Lipinski, you see, is one of the very few conservative Democrats left. He has a record of opposing abortion, gay rights and Obamacare.

Asked at her weekly press conference Thursday if she supports him, Pelosi replied, "Yes, I do."

It is an endorsement even the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has refused to offer.

Other Democrats have gone one step further, endorsing his primary challenger, Marie Newman.

“This is not a rubber-stamp party,” Pelosi told The Washington Post in May, explaining she did not believe in a litmus test for Democrats on the issue of abortion.

That is a strikingly different tone than the one DNC Chair Tom Perez took last year.

Opposing gay “marriage” is not opposing gay “rights”, since marriage is not a right.

Lipinski, you see, is one of the very few conservative Democrats left.

But, still votes, religiously, with the Dummies!

Does he have another Bolshie primary opponent? If not she will need him, if Nanzi wants to be speaker again.

“Asked at her weekly press conference Thursday if she supports him, Pelosi replied, “Yes, I do.””

Did she even know who she was talking about?

Probably had no clue.

Because she knows that, like all such 'Rats, when the crunch comes, they always abandon their "principles" and toe the pro-abortion party line.

In the pro-choice/pro-life debate, the Democrats could probably make some ground if they compromised on this issue. A lot of people just don’t ever want to vote for a party platform that is for abortion rights no matter what the individual candidate thinks.

Tit for tat.

Even Nancy (sometimes) gets it.

“This is not a rubber-stamp party,” Pelosi told The Washington Post in May...
...and the Partisan Media Shills at the Washington ComPost rubberstamped her statement. It might be more accurate to call it a litmus test party, but most accurate of all is to call it the Party of the Single Party State. Thanks ChicagoConservative27.
