Pelosi: Socialism “Is Not The View Of The Democratic Party”; AOC Knows We Have To “Hold The Center”

“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Democratic freshman in Congress such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “know” they have to hold the center as a party. Pelosi also told ’60 Minutes’ correspondent Lesley Stahl that she rejects socialism and “it is not the view of the Democratic party.”

“I do reject socialism as an economic system. If people have that view, that’s their view. That is not the view of the Democratic Party,” Pelosi told Lesley Stahl.”

Buttigieg: Capitalism Has Let A Lot Of People Down, Democracy Is More Important Than Capitalism

CNN HOST:  I’m interested in if you think your fellow Democrats and some of your Democratic contenders and competitors in this race for the White House have vilified big business in a way that is dangerous, and capitalism, when now we know more Democrats view socialism favorably than capitalism.

BUTTIGIEG: Well, I think the reason we’re having this argument over socialism and capitalism is that capitalism has let a lot of people down. I guess what I’m out there to say is that it doesn’t have to be so. I believe in Democratic capitalism. But the Democratic part is extremely important.

Cultural Diversity: Islamic cleric films guide on how Muslim men should properly beat their wives

 “Dear viewers, many people – especially people who are married – would like to know how to beat one’s wife. Is beating your wife necessary? Must a man beat his wife every day? No.

“First, we must understand that the man is the leader of the house. A leader has authorities, just like a company manager.

The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on. How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her

Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj
“The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on. How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her.

“Now, let’s see how Islam teaches how to beat your wife. Let’s imagine that Nayef here… Nayef is obviously a boy, but let’s imagine that he is the wife. How should a husband beat his wife?

“First, he must admonish her – in other words, he should advise her. Then, he should refrain from sharing a bed with her. If all of this doesn’t help, we start the beating as a last resort.

“This is a painless beating that does not leave bruises or cause bleeding. The beating I just gave Nayef is the true gentle beating in Islam.”

Pelosi: There is ‘No Taint’ of Anti-Semitism in Democratic Party

Huh… not even a smidgen…..

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) firmly rejected allegations of anti-Semitism leveled at a member of her party, insisting in an interview that there is “no taint” of anti-Semitism within the Democratic party.

Pelosi was interviewed by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour during her trip to Dublin, Ireland, and was asked about criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her comments about Israel.

“I don’t think that the congresswoman is anti-Semitic, I wouldn’t even put those two in the same category,” Pelosi said on CNN.

Illegal migrant advocate Cher blasted for opposing illegal migrants flooding LA

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+🇺🇸Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” she tweeted on Sunday, her style curiously similar to Trump’s own.

In her scorn for the proposal, Cher joins a chorus of Democratic lawmakers and progressive activists, like fellow Hollywood celebrity Alyssa Milano, who have already admonished Trump for what they see as an attempt at revenge on migrant-friendly cities, mostly governed by Democrats.

The liberal outrage, however, was met with derision from Trump supporters, who pointed out that having talked the talk, Democrats and their supporters should now walk the walk and welcome the masses of Central American migrants with open arms.

Cher’s tweet has likewise triggered a major backlash.

“Hello! Looks like you just woke up,” one wrote, and many jokingly welcomed her to the conservative side.

Pete Buttigieg’s father was a Marxist professor who lauded the Communist Manifesto

“Paul Kengor, a professor at Grove City College and an expert in communism and progressivism, said Buttigieg was among a group of leftist professors who focused on injecting Marxism into the wider culture.

“They’re part of a wider international community of Marxist theorists and academicians with a particular devotion to the writings of the late Italian Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci, who died over 80 years ago. Gramsci was all about applying Marxist theory to culture and cultural institutions — what is often referred to as a ‘long march through the institutions,’ such as film, media, and especially education,” Kengor told the Washington Examiner.”

Trump says he is considering putting migrants in sanctuary cities

Democrats say that is totally unfair for them to be singled out after stopping the national border from being secured and creating sanctuary cities where federal immigration law is ignored…. say forcing them to take responsibility for their own laws is immature, mean, and nasty.

“They say ‘we have open arms.’ They’re always saying they have open arms. Let’s see if they have open arms.”

Trump’s comments breathed new life into the proposal, which could further rile lawmakers in Washington who say the president is going too far in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
