Do Democrats have contempt for Americans who aren't part of the richest 1% or don't live in cities on the coast?

This query comes after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made an outrageous comment during a recent Oxford Union debate, calling those who may see themselves as part of the populist movement just "poor souls who are looking for some answers."

"We've given [answers] to them, but they're blocked by some of their views on guns. They have the three Gs: guns, gays, God," huffed the the 84-year-old Pelosi. "That would be a woman's right to choose — and the cultural issues cloud some of their reception of an argument that really is in their interest."

How utterly condescending, albeit not surprising considering the elitist bubble that Pelosi — who, along with her husband, is worth north of $100 million — lives in.

She's clearly saying, in other words, that if these "poor souls" weren't so brainwashed and would listen to the way Democrats would like them to think, they would see that the Democratic Party and its agenda is a perfect fit for them.

They're just too dumb or delusional to realize it.

The sanctimonious sentiment brings back memories of Barack Obama's perspective on struggling working-class voters during a private fundraiser in San Francisco back in 2008.

"They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," Obama said in comments he didn't know were being recorded.

He would later apologize, but only because there was an election to be won that year.

But let's be clear: Obama meant every word.

We hear this pious perspective again and again from those who claim to represent working men and women.

Another case in point: One could argue that a critical turning point in the 2016 presidential election occurred when Hillary Clinton called half of Donald Trump's supporters a "basket of deplorables."

"You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?" Clinton declared in a September 2016 speech to donors in New York, which included Barbra Streisand. "The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that."

Hillary went on to lose, of course, all thanks to working-class voters in Rust Belt states like Wisconsin and Michigan who went for Trump.

Make no mistake: These aren't gaffes. These are pompous Democrats telling us what they truly believe.

The party of the little guy has become the party of coastal elites.

The numbers back it up: Of the richest 10 congressional districts in the country, all are represented by Democrats.

But hey, at least the party's leader is the current president, "Scranton" Joe Biden, right?

Well, Scranton Joe has turned in his small-town credentials for two multimillion-dollar homes, including one on the beach in Delaware.

And when Biden goes on vacation, he's off to his good buddy Tom Steyer's $18 million waterfront mansion in Lake Tahoe.

Or he flies to Nantucket to stay with private equity boss David Rubenstein, whose home sits on 18 acres on the water and is valued at $34 million.

You know, regular folk …

This may be yet another reason why Trump is leading on average in every swing state: He connects with regular people, especially those who feel like the Democratic Party looks down on them … because maybe they own a gun or practice religion.

The horror.

Nancy Pelosi. Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton. Joe Biden.

They may claim to be more caring about the plight of average Americans, the struggles of ordinary families who value their faith.

Yet their words and actions say otherwise, and the perception matches reality: Democrats have disdain for the very voters they claim to champion.

In November, that perception could very well cost them the power they value most.

"The party of the little guy has become the party of coastal elites."   It's also been taken over by extreme left wing progressives

"This may be yet another reason why Trump is leading on average in every swing state: He connects with regular people, especially those who feel like the Democratic Party looks down on them … because maybe they own a gun or practice religion."

The arrogance and condescension of these entitled moronic assholes is disgusting.

It's telling how many of the left fit into the description Clinton labeled her oppositions voters.  And it's on full display every day.

She really looked bad in this, acting like a spoiled brat,  while her opponent was speaking she was  mouthing words at him, sighing exaggeratedly and ignoring basic decorum.  Just Like petulantly tearing up the presidents speech during a state of union. 

given she’s protected by the democratic media bubble at home, it was apparently too much for her to have to listen to a speaker offer differing opinions,

These people have been taught that everything that happened in the past is bad and they should be activists and change the world. Of course, college should have taught them about the world, but it didn't.

Every time someone mentions them, those poor populists cop the victim attitude. It's funny they are so easily triggered by the likes of Nancy. Where it not for all their bitching I'd never know what she ever has to say these days. She's largely irrelevant otherwise.

Funny whenever Democrats open their mouths they say something demeaning to some segment of the population; and then their backers come and blame the victims.

Pelosi is the former Speaker of the House, and still one of the leading Democrats in the House. Pretending she doesn't have power and influence is living in denial.

Also, leftists should apply the same standards with Trump. Instead of hanging on every word he says; and getting butthurt over it.

...and then their backers come and blame the victims.

Making it personal is childish. I don't give a shit what Nancy says why would you?

The key word there is 'former'. She's on her way out. The new leadership will give her a kiss on the forehead and cupcake on her way out the door. 

Also, leftists should apply the same standards with Trump. Instead of hanging on every word he says; and getting butthurt over it.

It's true left wing populists are every bit as dumb as the right wing populists. A nation of over 333 million people cannot be governed from either wing.

And it's generally the very people they are supposed to be representing.  Further indication they don't care about the people as long as they have power.

Well, these articles are fun for us old farts; a trip down memory lane.  But Pelosi is actually politically dead and will soon be physically dead.  These old Democrat bigots won't live forever.  Time is going to take their political relevance from their cold, dead hands.  Pelosi has outlived her legacy; she doesn't know when to quit.  Now the legacy of these old, dried up, Democrats is one of division and hate.  That's the only way they can attract attention any longer.  

Damned kids, get off the lawn!  And that's how they'll be remembered.

You know, the youngest voter for Ronald Reagan turns 54 this year.  The youngest voter for Bill Clinton turns 46 this year.  The politics of that time is for old people.  And the ranks of old people are growing thinner every day.  The torch is going to be passed to new generations whether we like it or not.

Saw a meme recently, someone said well 30 yrs ago, and someone said they immediately thought 1970s, in truth 30 yrs would be 1994.....excuse me but I have to sit down for a moment......

In theory there is nothing wrong with populism. 

In practice, the way Trump uses it, is abhorrent.

An interesting read:  

Winston Marshall: I didn’t have to expose Nancy Pelosi — she did it herself

Would she condemn the June 2020 federal courthouse insurrection in Portland, Ore., by radical progressives? Remember — the one that lasted the entire month?

No. She was more concerned with Jan. 6, insisting to the room of Oxford students that it had been incited by Donald Trump.

Whatever might have happened on Jan. 6, I agreed it was a dark day. But would she condemn the Oregon incident?

She stared at me blankly.

___________________________________________________________

Trump should’ve accepted the 2020 election, I baited. So, too, should Pelosi have in 2016 instead of claiming it was “hijacked.”

“It was!” she interrupted, adding “that doesn’t mean we don’t accept the result of it.”

There we have it, ladies and gentlemen: In one breath calling into question the legitimacy of the election. And in the next breath saying she accepted an illegitimate election.

Pelosi blundering her way though the debate with so much bullshit you would think you were on a farm.
