Nancy Pelosi leads Democrats to take-a-knee, then can’t get up

Breitbart reports that yesterday, June 8, 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) piously led fellow Congressional Democrats — including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) — to “take a knee” in silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol “in honor of” George Floyd and to “respect the actions of the American people to speak out” against the “consequences” of slavery and racism “specifically manifested in police brutality.”

8 minutes and 46 seconds are the same amount of time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who has been charged with second degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, knelt on Floyd’s neck, which ended in the latter’s death.

Referring to slavery in U.S. history, Pelosi said:

“That tragedy, that tragedy, that hour of history … slavery in our own country and then all the consequences of that. We are here to observe that pain. We are here to respect the actions of the American people to speak out against that, specifically manifested in police brutality. We are here to honor George Floyd and so many others who lost their lives and were abused by police brutality.”

Pelosi then read off a host of names, including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Freddie Gray, Michel Brown, and Trayvon Martin, before the Democrat legislators, all draped in Kente cloth scarves, collectively took a knee.

Kente cloth is a textile made in Ghana, Africa, of interwoven cloth strips of silk and cotton. Kente scarves are often used by blacks in America as a symbol of ethnic pride.

After the kneeling, 80-year-old Pelosi struggled to get up.

Reaching to an aide for help, Pelosi blamed her high heels. She said: “It’s hard to get up. It’s better not to have high heels.”

Afterwards, Pelosi made more pious remarks during a press briefing.

Glaringly ignoring the violence, burning, looting, and killing of many Floyd protests (see “America Under Siege: George Floyd rioters burn, loot, kill”), Pelosi extolled the protests, saying: “Today this moment of national anguish is being transformed into a movement of national action as Americans from across the country peacefully protest to demand an end to injustice.” 

Taking-the-knee is a Masonic gesture of deference, according to Henry Makow. NOTHING, nothing is and will ever be sufficient to placate blacks and the Left about slavery. Never mind the fact that Americans had fought the Civil War (1851-1865) to end slavery — the most ruinous war in U.S. history, which exacted a toll of an estimated 755,000 military deaths, amounting to 2.385% of the then-population.

Regarding Nancy’s false piety:
“The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked” – Proverbs 15:8a 
“The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable– how much more so when brought with evil intent!” – Proverbs 21:27 
“Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent– the LORD detests them both.” Proverbs 17:15
Nancy, thousands of aborted black babies will demand an answer from you when you face the Lord.

For the fools that will bow down to the arrogance and orchestrated violence of these brainless puppets,many may never rise to their feet again They had all better consider the intent of the globalist’s, is to rid the world of their greatest obstacle, by death, or miscegenation with the more easily manipulated. But, it does appear much of the white race has become pretty gullible.

Why wear high heels to kneel…at her age? Act your age not your shoe or heel size in this case. Sorry but if you are going to kneel at your age do so in church with a pew in front of you to help you get up at least. Oh I almost forgot they closed churches for covid but kept Home Depots and other hardware stores open. And once they opened churches they make you sign alleged contact tracing forms for attending. But not when you shop. Oh the political and medical hypocrisy.

Liquor “essential” stores were allowed to stay open, too.

“NOTHING, nothing is and will ever be sufficient to placate blacks and the Left about slavery.”
SO True –but, I would add, even though there’s absolutely NO logical reason for Americans whose families haven’t “owned” slaves for many, MANY years, to COMPENSATE Blacks whose ancestors may or may NOT have actually BEEN slaves. If MY Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather was beat up and killed by an escaping slave, I guess the whole Black Nation owes ME reparations, right? How far do we want to carry this insane, BOGUS construct??

Sigh. We don’t teach history….again. We don’t teach history in context of the era…again. One of my husband’s antecedents was killed “in the doorway of his home” on the NC/VA line by a local Black man already wanted for murder. He’d had no history with this man, did not own slaves, did not support slave-owners. He was a poor/average subsistence farmer of the day. My PA 3x grt-grandfather served 3 enlistments in the Union to free slaves/preserve the Union of the US. He was killed in this service after fighting for nearly 4 yrs, age 44 by then…and left 6… Read more »

That is the history of so many white Americans today. Same with both sides of my family and my husbands family, they were all POOR impoverished white people from Europe who were desperate to have a decent life, they abandoned their countries to come to the USA and not a single one of them had a slave. Slaves were expensive back then.

The people of the USA elected a black gay man and his “husband”, yet the media screeches about racism even more than ever before, notice that? More and more black people and minorities are being elected and given high paying jobs, yet the yells of racism are at a fevered pitch.

Jerry NadLESS was unable to take a knee.
 
Why?
 
Because he couldn’t get back up on his own, and there probably wasn’t enough aides nearby to lift him back on his feet!
