Nancy Pelosi is facing a massive revolt from her left flank and she may not survive in November. Pelosi is facing her first real challenger on the ballot this November and the left wants her out.
They used their massive social media following to get the hashtag “Pelosi must go” trending nationally on Twitter the other day. That is not easy to do.
Many think unseating her is a longshot but the pandemic has changed everything. There is no normal and our leaders, if they don’t get this under control soon, will all be thrown out in November.
Pelosi will try to blame Trump but the voters are not that stupid – she has enormous power with control of the House and every bill passed to deal with this had to get her approval.
From The Daily Wire:
Pelosi is the target of an attack from the left and will face Shahid Buttar in the general election in November. Buttar is, like many left-leaning insurgent candidates, a Democratic socialist with, as Townhall notes, a resume of progressive bona fides, including several trips to Burning Man, and plenty of “socially conscious music” and poetry available for free on SoundCloud. He is also an immigrant and a Muslim and wears his hair in a “man-bun.”
“Buttar finished second in the primary and represents Pelosi’s first general election challenger from within the Democratic Party in 30 years,” Townhall reports.
Unlike Pelosi, Buttar supports the Green New Deal, single-payer health care (or, in the alternative, the more “realistic” “Medicare for All” plan proposed during the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)), the edicts of “intersectional feminism,” a significant hike in the national minimum wage, and fully open borders.
Pelosi has, despite her position as a leading Congressional opponent to President Donald Trump, been a top target of Justice Democrats and Democratic socialists. In 2016, her office was the first stop for then-newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who joined a Green New Deal protest outside the Speaker’s front door rather than step in for an appointment. Since then, progressives like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have challenged Pelosi to censure or otherwise punish them for statements made about far-left policies.
On Saturday, Buttar’s campaign organized and deployed a social media campaign targeting Pelosi directly with a hashtag, “#PelosiMustGo,” in order to force the Speaker to debate Buttar publicly.
“Nancy Pelosi stands in the way of progress and has done so for decades. That’s why #PelosiMustGo. My name is Shahid Buttar, and I approve this message,” Buttar’s campaign tweeted.
