When Nancy Pelosi makes more sense than Paul Ryan, you know that the GOP has big problems. And that is exactly what happened this week when House Minority Leader Pelosi condemned Antifa, branding them as thugs. Her denunciation of the left-wing hoodlums shocked many on her own side and many more on the Republican side, precisely because House Speaker Paul Ryan had not bothered to speak out against the masked marauders.
But let’s not begin patting Nance on the back yet. Aside from the reality that Pelosi has been making some off-the-wall comments lately, or should I say more than usual, we know that she is all about globalism, communism, and herself. If she wasn’t speaking from a demented mind, her condemnation was purely political. She wanted to make Paul Ryan look bad.
There’s no need for that, Nancy. Ryan looks bad all by his baby self. The House Speaker is just as pitiful as the former speaker John Boehner, who never saw a kitten that didn’t make him cry.
Paul Ryan rode into Washington D.C. as one of the Republican Young Guns. He was supposed to be a Conservative, which he is not. He had the stature, the good looks, the hair, and the bad-boy muscles to give the impression that he could and would get the job done for his conservative constituents. Instead he has let his party down, preferring to tend to his own selfish interests.
Unlike most in the Republican Party, I was not impressed nor excited when Paul Ryan was picked as Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate. Ryan was just the run-of-the-mill gym rat and political rock star. But I at least had hopes that he was as smart as he was headlined.
While I had my reservations about the golden boy, I was admittedly shocked when he became Joe Biden’s dinner during the 2012 vice presidential debate. When Biden chewed him up and spit him out on the debate stage, Ryan looked infantile, incompetent, and totally out of his league. Considering that Biden struggles with a sublevel IQ, Ryan’s humiliating beat down embarrassed all Republicans who had the stomach to watch the debate in its entirety.
Paul Ryan’s performance was so mortifying that he was a disgrace to his party. But yet, the Republicans in the House saw fit to make this pantywaist the House Speaker. And that tells me that Ryan has friends in high places. Can you say George Soros’ hedge fund?
Following Pelosi’s castigation of Antifa, Ryan’s spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, has released a statement stating, “Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country.”
Oh, I get it. Ryan believes it is “obvious” that Antifa is a cauldron of thugs, so he didn’t feel as though he needed to denounce them. So, using Ryan’s own logic, he must not believe that neo-Nazis are necessarily thugs, because he did publicly condemn them and President Trump for not specifically calling out only the neo-Nazis after Charlottesville.
In response to President Trump’s declaration that there were “many sides” responsible for the Charlottesville violence, Ryan wrote in a facebook post, “There are no sides. That is why we all need to make clear there is no moral relativism when it comes to neo-Nazis. We cannot allow the slightest ambiguity on such a fundamental question.”
Ryan was critical of Trump for even mentioning the “many sides” of the violence, and according to Strong, it was just because it is so obvious that Antifa are thugs. So, he saved his outrage for the neo-Nazis, because most of the nation thought the neo-Nazis were good guys? Is that it, pretty boy?
Other than his press release, Ryan has personally said nothing disparaging about Antifa. But he took the time to personally condemn President Trump for his disparagement of the “many sides” which were violent agitators in Charlottesville.
Folks, it’s bad when Nancy Pelosi outsmarts you. And that is exactly what Pelosi did to Boy Wonder. She outsmarted him just like Joe Biden made him eat dog food in a vice presidential debate.
But Ryan gets my vote for the “President of the Human Invertebrates Club.” He needs to crawl on his yellow belly straight back to Wisconsin and do the entire Republican Party a much needed favor!
