We agree with her…
But for entirely different reasons.
In a speech discussing the 2020 election, Nancy Pelosi made a hyperbolic claim: “Civilization as we know it is at stake.”
Well, if the Democrats nominate self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, civilization as we know it will be at stake!
Of course, Pelosi wasn’t talking about Bernie Sanders… She was talking about the re-election of President Trump.
Pelosi’s comments sounded tone-deaf to many, especially since Trump has spearheaded an incredible economic recovery and enacted policies that have benefited all Americans.

From the lawmaker who hails from a city with open defecation, the "end of civilization" comments struck many as ironic and exaggeration.
Pelosi was speaking at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
This isn't the first time Pelosi has been over-the-top in her descriptions of President Trump.
As Speaker of the House, Pelosi also sets the tone and sets an example for her constituency.
By attempting to raise the stakes, Pelosi is contributing to the heated political rhetoric in America, not lowering them.
Breitbart has more on Pelosi's "end of civilization" comments and their context:
Pelosi’s speech also touched on other topics, including women in politics.
“Just generally, I usually always cast my vote for a woman. I just do,” she told attendees.
At one point, an audience member raised the prospect of the first woman president being a Republican, to which she replied: “That’s okay.”
Pelosi’s remarks come after Politico‘s Playbook reported that President Trump will skip the speaker’s annual St. Patrick’s Day lunch on Capitol Hill.
“Since the Speaker [of the House Nancy Pelosi] has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity, and will instead celebrate the rich history and strong ties between the United States and Ireland at the White House on March 12,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement of the decision.
Pelosi made similar comments claiming that President Trump’s possible re-election threatens the world as House Democrats readied two articles of impeachment against the president.
“The damage that this administration has done to America — America is a great country, we can sustain — two terms, I don’t know,” Pelosi said at a CNN town hall event in December. “Civilization, as we know it today, is at stake in this election.”
During the speech, Pelosi admitted that she generally votes for women over men.
Many criticized the move as "sexist," since she openly stated she considered gender while voting, rather than looking at the policies and experience of the candidates.
See the clip below:
The constant over-the-top criticisms of President Trump seem more like anger tantrums than legitimate arguments.
The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on Fox News' Hannity to describe how Democrats are behaving like a "bunch of children."
Pelosi's comments certainly do not help that image.
Hear more from Mitch McConnel on Hannity:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped-by ‘Hannity’ last month to weigh-in on the President’s overwhelming acquittal; saying the Democratic Party is behaving like “a bunch of children.”
“They look diminished, small, petty, and insignificant to me. Your thoughts?” asked Hannity.
“Right now, this is a political loser for them. They initiated it, they thought this was a great idea. For the short term, it’s been a colossal political mistake,” said McConnell. “The Speaker tearing up the President’s speech? How childish and petty is that? What kind of example does that set for the American people?” asked McConnell.
“We’re in Congress, sitting together, among ourselves. We ought to be able to disagree and not behave like a bunch of children,” he added. “You can best describe it as Trump Derangement Syndrome. Whatever he’s for, they have a negative response to it immediately.”
Thank goodness we have responsible leaders on capitol hill to keep enacting the will of the American people!
Trump resonated with voters because he is a person who does what he will say.
He continues to fight for the rights and welfare of all Americans, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or income.
If that's what Nancy Pelosi means by "end of civilization," then we want 4 more years of it!
