This past Monday was MLK Day and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a speech at the MLK Day Deliver for Voting Rights Press Conference in Washington, D.C.
Of course, she was only using it as a ploy to push the Democrats' agenda and try to ensure Democrats are always in control of Congress.
Once again, she used this opportunity to try and push her own agenda instead of just honoring the day for what it is.
“It’s just the filibuster in the way. So, in a way, if you really, truly want to honor Dr. King, don’t dishonor him by using a Congressional custom as an excuse for protecting our democracy. We have no right to honor this family, to visit the monument,” Pelosi said.
She continued,” Imagine, 30 – someone 36 years old, left this earth in such a way that he has a monument on the Mall along with Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson. All of them with tears in their eyes for the departure from our democracy that is happening right now – unless the truth is acknowledged and this legislation is passed.”
I really wish that these jerks would quit using tragedy for political gain. We've seen it for years and I think that every one of these people needs voted out. I don't care if they're Democrats or Republicans. If they are going to use tragedy for political gain, then they likely don't have the best interest of the people at heart.

And her audacity to claim anything like this about our Founding Fathers is ridiculous. She is so far from holding the values that the Founding Fathers had that they would tar and feather her if they were still alive today.
Hopefully, people are right and this will be Nancy Pelosi's last year in Congress. I just worry who might replace her.
