The now thankfully former Speaker of the House Nancy “San Fran Nan” Pelosi said in a recent interview that a Boeing plant in South Carolina should either unionize or be shut down by the iron fist of government. So much for America being the land of the free, eh?
Pelosi appeared on CNBC with hostette Maria Bartiromo. Bartiromo asked about the famed Boeing plant being harassed by Obama’s union-sold National Labor Relations Board.
“Do you think it’s right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because it’s non union?” Bartiromo asked. “Yes” insisted the former Speaker.
A flat out “yes.” No equivocation.
Lachlan Markay notes that the workers at the Boeing plant in question overwhelmingly voted not to join a union.
Pelosi may or may not know that workers at the South Carolina plant in question voted resoundingly (199-68) to decertify their union two years ago. Government policies that would close the plant for being a non-union shop would simply be punishing those workers for exercising their right to determine union representation for themselves.
So, not only is Pelosi violating what the company wants she’s even violating the will of the very workers she claims she cares about. Why does she imagine she knows more than the workers themselves do?
I’ll answer that for you: she doesn’t.
This is an arrogant, un-American attitude from Pelosi, of course. She is saying that she is the one that should decide what any business does. There is no freedom in the dark, authoritarian world of Nancy Pelosi. All are ruled by her majesty in Washington D.C.
But Nancy Pelosi’s Fascism is not an outlier. It is part-and-parcel to the Democrat Party governing philosophy in this era. They know better than you about what you should be allowed to do. Democrats have become an un-American party.
