All Woke Up: Pelosi’s un-woke Papa

Nancy better take another knee.

As the Washington Times reports, Nancy Pelosi’s father Thomas D’Alesandro Jr. served as Baltimore mayor during the late 1940s and 1950s. Let’s just say that Pelosi’s papa wasn’t necessarily a diversity/equity/inclusion kind of political leader.

D’Alesandro, not long after being elected in 1947, dedicated a monument to Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions,” Pelosi’s old man said in his dedication speech.

Of course, you don’t have to be a Woke historian to know that Lee and Jackson fought to preserve the “peculiar institution” of slavery in the South.

D’Alesandro’s daughter, as Speaker of the House and placater of the radical left, has led the charge to tear down the kind of statues her father helped erect. Pelosi has refused to denounce him the way that she has denounced so many others she and her leftist ilk have broadly painted as white supremacists and oppressors.

Remember Nancy and friends awkwardly kneeling last summer for nine minutes of ridiculous political theater?

The Speaker may need to kneel again. Her white privilege and her Papa’s past are showing.

  • I’m no fan of Nancy Pelosi or her mobster dad. Prove me wrong: Robert E. Lee did NOT own slaves at the time of the so-called “Civil War”. Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson certainly DID NOT own slaves. Union General Grant DID OWN SLAVES THROUGHOUT THE WAR. Now, please tell me again how the South was trying to “preserve slavery” even though their top generals were not slave owners, yet the UNION ARMY’S COMMANDING GENERAL WAS A MISSOURI SLAVE OWNER THROUGHOUT THE WAR. How are you going to reconcile this awkward truth?
