Speaker Pelosi claims millions of Trump supporters are cult members
UPDATED 10:05 AM PT – Friday, September 17, 2021
“I’d say to my Republican friends, and I do have some, take back your party. You’re the Grand Old Party of America. You’ve done wonderful things for our country. You now have been hijacked by a cult.”
— House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) seemingly implied that supporters of 45th President Donald Trump are a greater threat than a Communist China. While speaking at Cambridge University on Thursday, the California Democrat began with calling on establishment Republicans to suppress votes from supporters of Trump.
“One of the ways we can help improve that situation is by passing H.R.1, which would have redistricting in a way that is, again, agonistic just along the line of the Voting Rights Act,” Pelosi stated. “It may not benefit Democrats, but it may benefit the country because it would make Republican districts more open to people other than the ones who are in Congress now.”
The Speaker of House then doubled down on her remarks against Trump supporters by comparing them to cult members. After condemning Republicans, she took a moment out of her speech to talk about a budding relationship with China.
“With their continuation of genocide…with their violation of their cultural, religious priority of Tibet, with their depression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China as well, they’re just getting worse in terms of suppression and freedom of speech,” she stated.
