Pelosi and Rumpelstiltskin

Watching Nancy Pelosi and her gang of insolent quislings, it was hard not to think of the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin."  Power, greed, deal-making, sacrifice of children, and petulant rage are a few of the themes of this fairy tale that aptly describe the current Democrat party.

The fairy tale relates that a young woman must spin straw into gold thread because her father, a miller, foolishly boasted to the greedy king that she can.  Clearly, this is an impossible task until a "strange little man" saves the day — but at what cost?  Constantly trying to keep up with the demands of the avaricious king, the miller's daughter accepts a bargain that entails giving up her newborn baby son if she cannot identify the "little man's" name.  Through happenstance, she is able to counter the odious demand, and the now identified Rumpelstiltskin flies into a fit of rage.  In fact, in "his anger he stamped with his right foot so hard that it went into the ground above his knee; then he seized his left foot with both his hands in such a fury that he split in two, and there was an end of him."

So what does an ancient fairy tale have to do with Nancy Pelosi?

For far too long, the Democrats have wheedled their way into American's lives with sly promises and sleight-of-hand maneuvers.  Oh, a bone or two will be flung, but the depressed Baltimores, Detroits, and Clevelands never improve.  A recreational center may be built, but illegals bearing deadly intentions and drugs will not be stopped as they destroy neighborhoods.

Democrats with smug Cheshire cat smiles claim that all of G-d's children really matter but somehow are quite comfortable with schools that do not teach and present-day teacher unions concerned only with the acquisition of power, not the education of children.  As Dennis Prager notes:

The most obvious — and, therefore, the one more and more Americans can resonate with — is the near destruction of most American universities as places of learning. In the words of Harvard professor Steven Pinker — an atheist and a liberal — outside of the natural sciences and a few other disciplines (such as mathematics and business), 'universities are becoming laughing stocks of intolerance.'

If you send your children to a university, you are endangering both their mind and their character. There is a real chance they will be more intolerant and more foolish after college than they were when they entered college.

When you attend an American university, you are taught to have contempt for America and its founders, to prefer socialism to capitalism, to divide human beings by race and ethnicity. You are taught to shut down those who differ with you, not to debate them. And you are taught to place feelings over reason — which is a guaranteed route to eventual evil.

The Democrats are only too willing for Americans to surrender their children's souls to the miseducation and propaganda that describe far too many schools as Leftist indoctrination prevails.

And, for the ladies in white, late-term abortion is truly caring for the lives of little ones!  Recall that the Democrats sat on their hands as Trump introduced the miracle of a very premature baby who survived with the help of modern medicine.

For generations, people have accepted the facile words of the Democrat Party that in order to get ahead, albeit meagerly, they must make a deal with the "strange little man" who allegedly cared, the consequences be damned.  Hence, little by little, Americans gave up their liberties under the delusion that they would receive something of equal value in return. 

But alas, the stakes are even higher as the Democrat Party shreds the Bill of Rights and constitutional safeguards.  Moreover, the introduction of the "New Way Forward" act is a horrifying revelation of the contempt and loathing the Democrat Party has for American sovereignty and safety of her citizens.  H.R. 5383 seeks to deliberately flout American immigration law that is supposed to protect American life and property.  It is stunning in its malevolence and acceptance of lawlessness.  But it is only the latest manifestation because in 2013 in an interview with Telemundo, Pelosi said, "Our view of the law is that ... if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation."  Pelosi has always wished to pass a new law legalizing illegal aliens altogether.  Enter the New Way Forward.  Knowing that anti-American anti-Semites Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ocasio-Cortez are in favor of this act should give all Americans deep pause.

In February 2018, Pelosi and House Democrats "introduced a bill to immediately restore voting rights to felons, and mandate automatic voter registration."  Clearly, the Democrats would ignore the words of Bill McCollum, who in 2007 asserted:

The campaign to automatically restore civil rights to nearly all felons upon release from prison, with no waiting period and no hearing to determine if those felons will go right back to a life of crime, is reckless and irresponsible.  States have enacted laws to take away certain rights of those who commit crimes, reasoning that a person who breaks the law should not make the law.

But it should be recalled that Pelosi has long had ties to communists and socialists whose sole aim is the subversion of America.  Pelosi, one of the wealthiest members of  Congress, continually operates by "demonizing and destroying" those who oppose her.  She lied about Obamacare; she is comfortable with Islamic leaders who exhort anti-American beliefs; she "discounts the ideas of those who disagree with her regarding global warming"; she has "likened conservatives to Nazis"; and she has used her political influence to manipulate taxpayer money and enrich herself. 

I am actually grateful that Pelosi showed her genuine colors when she tore up President Trump's State of the Union address.  First, it is an illegal act according to 18 U.S. Code 2071, but given that the Democrats cast the law aside when they see fit, this should surprise no one.  But it should enlighten many who, heretofore, were not paying close attention.

That she could shred the accomplishments of the Americans who were invited to the SOTU event is a continuing display of the contempt Democrats have for the people. 

I would say that in her wrath, Pelosi has shown America that she does not represent the people and that her party has nothing but disdain for American values and American lives.  Ultimately, their overweening hubris and fury will consume them, much as it did Rumpelstiltskin of the past.  It will be a fitting end as the Democratic Party immolates itself, taking its bossy termagant leader with it.
