Nancy Pelosi thought her grip on power was secure.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thought wrong.
And Nancy Pelosi just got a challenger to her leadership from one unlikely source.
Nancy Pelosi imposed an autocratic mask mandate for the floor of the House of Representatives.
Pelosi was one of the leading spreaders of misinformation that cloth masks slowed the spread of the coronavirus.
Even one of CNN’s own TV doctors admitted cloth masks were nothing more than “expensive facial decorations.”
A recent CNN poll showed 75 percent of Americans frustrated with the state of the pandemic.
Monmouth University found 70 percent of Americans ready to move on to normal life.
Democrats see the same polling data and are terrified that the American people will brand Democrats as the party of permanent mask mandates and lockdowns.
Now two Democrats stepped up to publicly contradict Speaker Pelosi and call for an end to the House of Representatives’ mask mandate.
Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee and Pennsylvania Congresswoman Susan Wild – who is one of the most endangered Democrats running for re-election – both told POLITICO it was time to restore normal life to the floor of the House of Representatives.
POLITICO Playbook reports:
“We follow the science and are our medical advisers, but I think the time will come sooner rather than later” to end the House mask requirement, Rep. DAN KILDEE (D-Mich.) told Playbook. “I wish more of my colleagues were vaccinated, but … I think we will have to modify our approach to the pandemic as it changes. … Hopefully sometime this spring.”
Democratic Rep. SUSAN WILD, a frontliner from Pennsylvania, agreed. As a member of the House Ethics Committee that’s been tasked with enforcing Democrats’ mask fining policy, she’s been frustrated that so much of the panel’s work has been focused on this issue.
“The Ethics Committee has sadly been turned into the mask police, and we’re spending way too much time on mask violation issues,” she said. “When we come back [from recess] … in early March, unless there’s been some new strain or variant, I think it’s time to get rid of the masked mandate.”
Kildee and Wild understand that if Democrats want any prayer of gaslighting the American people into believing the falsehood that Joe Biden restored normal life to America then Democrats have to act like life is normal in high-profile public settings.
But Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden both refuse to budge from their support for mask mandates.
Democrats know this course of action would lead to a political apocalypse in November.
That reality has not sunk in at the highest levels of the party.
And that is why Americans see the unprecedented spectacle of rank-and-file Democrats undercutting Speaker Pelosi.
