It’s an understatement to say Nancy Pelosi’s control over the House Democrat caucus is in question.
I’d go so far as to say it’s the understatement of the century.
Pelosi has lost complete control of the party she hoped to wield to even greater victory in 2020.
And you want to know the truth?
It’s her own damn fault.
I said before that Pelosi believed she could successfully harness the popularity of these new Freshman Democrats for her own political purposes.
And instead, she’s unleashed a monster that cannot be contained.
Worse still, this monster is turning on the Speaker.
Take the rebellion that is happening among House Democrats over the anti-Semitic crank who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Ilhan Omar is a problem that, if Pelosi had control of her party would be swiftly dealt with.
But instead, despite her flagrant Jew hatred, Omar is being excused and shielded by the very party Nancy is supposed to control.
Leaving CBC meeting, members formed a circle around @IlhanMN and Marcia Fudge literally stuck her arm out to prevent reporters from asking her questions.— Melanie Zanona (@MZanona) March 6, 2019
Then a few members hugged Omar, including Al Lawson.
Rather than taking a stand against her vile anti-Semitism, members of the Democrat Party are circling the wagons and twisting themselves into pretzels to defend her.
And all the Speaker of the House can do is capitulate.
In a way, I’m enjoying watching the Democrat Party in disarray. Especially after the news media boosted Pelosi as the powerful leader who would bring Donald Trump to heel.
She can’t even bring her own party to heel.
Nancy has no power anymore. Because the monster she created has turned on her.
The fact is, Nancy was never going to be able to harness and contain the incoming radical Leftists. The modern-day Democrat Party is all about Identity Politics, Intersectionality and Political Correctness.
And Nancy has nobody to blame but herself. She helped create this monster and now the monster is out of control.
The rebellion over Ilhan Omar is the prime example of how Pelosi’s embrace of identity politics is biting her in the ass.
Omar has the perfect built-in shield of political correctness and Identity Politics “Intersectionality.”
She’s a black Somali Muslim, a refugee and a woman.
That’s an almost perfect Intersectional Score. The only way it could get better for her is if she was also a lesbian vegan.
In fact it is her high Intersectional Score that explains why the Democrat Party is willing to burn itself to the ground in order to shield her.
Now, this doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Back in December 2016, Fox News interviewed James Mitchell – the psychologist and former CIA officer who was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s interrogator at Guantanamo Bay.
In this interview, Mitchell discussed some of the things KSM told him during their conversations.
Here is one point that’s worth noting. And as you read it, think of what’s happening with Ilhan Omar and the House Democrats right now:
”Here’s the way political correctness works for a guy like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. It allows them to operate in our midst without being challenged. It allows them to ratchet up the focus on sharia law without us pushing back on it. And we end up inadvertently imposing on ourselves the blasphemy laws of sharia, because we cut back on the things that they find offensive.”
Ilhan Omar wraps this political correctness around her like a hijab made of Kevlar. And because she scores such a high Intersectional Score, nobody is willing to criticize her. Which gives her liberty to spew her hate with impunity while simultaneously playing the Victim.
And like stupid lemmings, the Democrats rush to shield her and demand that nobody criticize her no matter how hateful her rhetoric.
How is Pelosi supposed to control a party that is both paralyzed by fear at being labeled “Islamophobic” and radicalized to the point where Jews will be sacrificed in favor of someone with a higher Intersectional Score?
And yet Nancy really did believe she could exploit the popularity of these Marxist Sisters.
Yesterday, she learned the hard way that she can’t.
Spineless! So afraid of the far-left Frankenstein they created. Dems be like, “I want to condemn anti-semitism, but AOC has so many Twitter followers” https://t.co/nPhOumah6v— Eddie Zipperer (@EddieZipperer) March 7, 2019
The Democrat base is becoming more radicalized with each passing day. And the fact is, anti-Semitism is baked in to this radical base.
Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat leadership fear alienating these radicals because without them, they would have no base at all. So rather than stand up against virulent anti-Semitism, Pelosi recoils in fear of the very monster she created.
Pelosi and company have decided to support the most anti-Semitic wing of the party in order to shore up a political coalition. There is no principle here, just rank partisan interest.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 6, 2019
All @GOPLeader did was challenge Democrats to live by the same standard they apply to Republicans when it comes to bigotry. And look what has happened: they are in an internal civil war because the D base won’t condemn antisemitism, and the leadership lacks the courage to insist.— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) March 6, 2019
The truth is, the Democrats are doing exactly what Khalid Sheikh Mohammed predicted.
They are paralyzed by fear of being politically incorrect, so they are willing to allow anti-Semitism to flourish in their party.
Democrats let a cancer into the party and now “struggle” to contain it.— Bryan Dean Wright (@BryanDeanWright) March 6, 2019
This outcome surprises no one.https://t.co/ZbkBDYGkuI
This is the monster Nancy Pelosi created. And despite her attempts to appease it, she’s lost complete control.

How many constituencies will the Democrats lose over Nancy Pelosi’s embrace of this radical, hate-filled fringe?
It’s difficult to know just how far-reaching the consequences will be.
But I think it’s fair to say that those moderate Democrats who flipped traditionally Republican districts during the 2018 Midterms are nervous as hell that Nancy and the Democrats are losing the very voters they counted on to win.
And if they lose those voters in 2020, the Democrats will not only lose the House, they’ll lose the White House as well.
