House Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Father Helped Dedicate Confederate Monuments Honoring Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee & “Stonewall” Jackson
SO DOES DEMOCRAT HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI THINK HER FATHER WAS A RACIST?
Well how about this bit of irony. House Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father helped dedicate statues of Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson in Baltimore, Maryland in 1948. According to reports, Pelosi’s father, the late Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., the then mayor of Baltimore, spoke out on May 2, 1948 in praise and honored Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. My how the times have changed. So why isn’t Pelosi denouncing her father? The very statues that Pelosi, Democrats and the LEFT look to tear down, are the very one’s her father helped create. Where is her outrage? Talk about the height of hypocrisy. Talk about your inconsistent truths. Pelosi’s father said during the dedication, “Today with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.” Um, what “scared institutions” is he referring to?
We are still waiting for Pelosi to condemn and admonish her father. Still waiting. When will Pelosi be resigning from office due to her father’s actions? I mean dedicating statutes to the very slave holders and sons of the Confederacy that the LEFT today has lost their collective minds over. To follow their liberal logic, Pelosi should be resigning from office. BTW Nancy, dad would be so proud of you.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has ramped up calls to remove “reprehensible” Confederate statues from the halls of Congress — but left unsaid in her public denunciations is that her father helped dedicate such a statue decades ago while mayor of Baltimore.
It was May 2, 1948, when, according to a Baltimore Sun article from that day, “3,000” looked on as then-Governor William Preston Lane Jr. and Pelosi’s father, the late Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., spoke at the dedication of a monument to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.
The article said Lane delivered a speech, and Mayor D’Alesandro “accepted” the memorial.
“Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions,” D’Alesandro said in his dedication. “We must remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for the other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations.”
He added: “In these days of uncertainty and turmoil, Americans must emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”
The above provides a history lesson to the millennials of today. The Democrat party was the party party of slavery, segregation and Jim Crow. Maybe this is why the LEFT wants to tear down history, so that no one knows what their really history was all about.
The Baltimore Sun: Lee-Jackson monument was welcomed in Baltimore.
I think it is important for The Baltimore Sun to remind its readers on how it reported the official dedication of the Lee/Jackson Monument on May 2, 1948. A crowd of 3,000 came to the Wyman Park dedication to lots of pomp and fanfare. I believe what was said then must be taken into historical context. The dedication words were spoken from the heart by two of Maryland’s most revered politicians during the height of Jim Crow here in Charm City and six years before the landmark Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling.
Here is what Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., then mayor of Baltimore, and father of House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi said at the dedication, accepting the statue as the official representative of Baltimore:
“World Wars I and II found the North and South fighting for a common cause, and the generalship and military science displayed by these two great men in the War between the States lived on and were applied in the military plans of our nation in Europe and the Pacific areas.
“Today with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.
“We must remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations. In these days of uncertainty and turmoil, Americans must emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”
What “sacred institutions” was Mayor D’Alesandro talking about “preserving” just over 69 years ago?
President Donald Trump during 2017 Address to Congress … “Protect Our Nation from Radical Islamic Terrorism” (VIDEO)
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP GOES THERE THERE … WE WILL TAKE STRONG MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR NATION FROM RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM!!!
So much for Barack Obama’s Overseas Contingency Operation … It has been a long time in coming and it took President Donald Trump to say it during his first Address to Congress to unabashedly name the enemy confronting the United States and the rest of the world, radical Islamic terrorism!!! The WAPO described the 3 words used by President Trump as the ‘Three words that separate Trump from most of Washington.’ Note to WAPO, Democrats, liberals and the rest of the MSM, you know who also uses those same three words and are on the side of President Donald J. Trump, WE THE PEOPLE!!!
“We’re also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said in his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, with Republicans and one Democrat, Rep. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), responding with a standing ovation.
“According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,” Trump said.
“We have seen the attacks at home from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and, yes, even the World Trade Center,” Trump said. “We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany, and all over the world.
“It is not compassion but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur,” Trump said.
First Lady Melania Trump Recites The Lord’s Prayer & Speech at President Donald Trump Rally in Melbourne, Florida (2/18/2017) (VIDEO) … The Hateful, Godless LEFT Loses their Minds
WHAT A TREMENDOUS FIRST LADY …
First lady Melania Trump led the rally yesterday in Florida with the Lord’s Prayer, provided a brief speech and then introduced her husband, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Melania Trump told the crowd, she will “always stay true to myself, and be truthful to you, no matter what the opposition is saying about me.”
Before introducing her husband, the first lady described the country she and the president envision as “one that works for all Americans … and where all Americans can work and succeed.”
“A nation committed to a great civility and unity between people from all sides of the political divide,” she said.
The first lady then made a passing reference to recent attacks aimed on her, saying she will “always be truthful” with the American people “no matter what the opposition is saying about me.”
THEN WE HAVE THE LUNACY AND HATE FROM THE LEFT …
But of course this caused the unhinged lunatics on the LEFT to spout off with their typical moon-battery. Only the Godless LEFT could find fault and attach someone for doing something as innocent as reciting the Lord’s prayer. Not only has the LEFT lost their minds, they also can’t seem to educate themselves either. You might want to brush up on the “Establishment clause” and learn something, instead of consistently making fools of yourself. But the hateful LEFT could not help themselves on Twitter, the troll universe. The LEFT actually attacked Melania for reading the Lord’s prayer from a piece of paper, yet had no issue for 8 years of Obama reading from a teleprompter. The hypocritical outrage is comical.
POCAHONTAS UNHINGED …
Just curious, when did non-US citizens get U.S. Constitutional rights to demand entrance into America? The LEFT loses their collective minds over President Donald Trump’s campaign promise of extreme vetting, border security and illegal immigration.
Loudmouthed, Obnoxious Liberal Gets Herself Kicked Off Plane By Verbally Attacking Donald Trump Supporter
WHAT PART DON’T YOU LIBERALS GET THAT YOU DON’T GET TO INSULT OTHER PEOPLE AND THINK EVERYTHING IS A OK? HEY LIBS, THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGING …
A note to the LEFT, this is part of the reason why you lost the election, people are tired of your nasty, my way is the only way attitude. An irate, nasty woman got herself kicked off plane for berating stranger over attending the Donald Trump inauguration. No one care what you think and you don’t have a right to insult and go after people who have a differing point of view that you do. What makes you think you are so special? After this liberal moonbat gets in a strangers face and demands that he be made to changed seats, a flight attendant asked the loon to come with them. The nasty moonbat then has the nerve to say, “He’s in my space,” good grief. You friggin liberals need to get a grip. She was eventually taken off the plane by police to the clapping of those on board and chants of USA, USA.
What should have been a quiet, uneventful flight home turned out to be anything but after a crazed anti-Trump liberal began berating a calm, collected Koteskey out of the blue.
The woman asked him if he had come to D.C. to cheer or to protest, and a respectful Koteskey replied that he “came here to celebrate democracy ma’am.”
“You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes! You should be ashamed!” the woman then says.
