Americans can only take so much “resistance”. So much “resistance”. So much BS.
Americans have a pretty great BS detector and they can tell when someone is genuinely trying to help (Trump) and when someone is grandstanding (Pelosi).
And that’s exactly what Andrew Pollack did when he called out Pelosi recently.
Take a look at this Tweet he sent backing Trump and ripping Pelosi a new one:
Breitbart had more on the story:
Parkland father Andrew Pollack is calling out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her fight against President Donald Trump’s efforts to protect teachers, students.
Pollack lost his daughter, Meadow, in the February 14, 2018, attack.
Trump’s School Safety Commission, headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, submitted a report that presented numerous steps that could be taken to heighten school safety. One of those was doing away with an Obama administration rule that let kids prone to crime and/or dangerous behavior slip through the cracks.
Another step was to add more armed personnel on campus, particularly veterans and/or police. And Trump himself continued to push for armed teachers, as he has done since day one following the attack.
IJR reports that Pelosi responded by describing the report as an attempt “to roll back students’ civil rights and fill our classrooms with deadly firearms.”
She continued, “Not only are Republicans ignoring proven research and dismantling vital student anti-discrimination protections, they have blocked commonsense gun violence prevention measures and underfunded effective school climate practices, anti-bullying initiatives, after-school programs and school counselor supports.”
And from IJR:
Andrew Pollack lost his daughter Meadow in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida — and he’s tired of the horrific shooting being used “for retweets.”
The Trump administration released the Federal School Safety Commission Reportlast week detailing the current state of schools in the United States after the horrific shootings that took place in schools including Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe High School in Texas.
President Donald Trump called for the commission to be formed after the Parkland shooting and included parents like Pollack to contribute feedback for the report.
The commission, led by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos found that there isn’t a “universal school safety plan” that could protect every school. They emphasized the importance of partnerships between state governments and local teachers to ensure that the schools have the unique resources that they need.
The report also pointed to the role of the community to provide support to students and to speak out if they have concerns.
“Ultimately, ensuring the safety of our children begins within ourselves, at the kitchen table, in houses of worship, and in community centers. The recommendations within this report do not and cannot supplant the role families have in our culture and in the lives of children. Our country’s moral fabric needs more threads of love, empathy, and connection.”
Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) picked apart the report, claiming that the Trump Administration sunk to a “new low” in what she sees as defending gun rights over the lives of students.
“The Trump Administration ignored students, teachers and families to roll back students’ civil rights and fill our classrooms with deadly firearms. Not only are Republicans ignoring proven research and dismantling vital student anti-discrimination protections, they have blocked commonsense gun violence prevention measures and underfunded effective school climate practices, anti-bullying initiatives, after-school programs and school counselor supports.”
Pollack, who has become an advocate for pushing attainable school safety initiatives rather than complete system overhauls, wasn’t happy with Pelosi’s response to the Trump administration’s report.
He saw the commission’s report as a good first step in correcting implementing some fixes to the school safety practices across the country, but he didn’t see Pelosi’s criticisms as anything but an attack on the Trump administration.
