Nancy Pelosi tried to use the Left’s outrage over the Supreme Court potentially overturning Roe v. Wade for her own political gain.
But it didn’t work.
And Nancy Pelosi instantly regretted making this one attack against a Supreme Court Justice.
According to a recent poll conducted by NBC, the GOP enjoys a 17-point advantage over Democrats when it comes to which Party’s voters are more fired up and enthusiastic about the November Midterms.
This is bad news for Democrats.
And they know it, which is why Party leaders jumped at the attempt to use the leak of the draft opinion showing Roe v. Wade will be overturned to mobilize Democrat voters for the Midterm elections.
Even though the protests violated federal and state laws, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats tried to harness the anger of the left-wing activists protesting outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices.
Pelosi released a statement calling the pro-abortion fanatics anger “righteous,” while also saying she supported the protests at the homes of the Supreme Court Justices.
“While we have seen and heard extraordinary anguish in our communities, we have been moved by how so many have channeled their righteous anger into meaningful action: planning to march and mobilize to make their voices heard,” Pelosi declared.
However, Pelosi’s effort backfired, as pro-abortion protestors gathered outside her home in San Francisco to express their outrage over Democrats not doing enough to support abortion when they were in full control of the government.
“We are here because the Democratic Party and the Democrats as a whole have been complicit in this whole thing,” one protester shouted.
“We are here because this draft decision is what it is, it’s only a draft, and we will protest here, in front of the leadership of the Democratic Party, and in the streets from coast to coast, unceasingly, because we work to keep abortion legal – legal and accessible, not rare,” the protester added.
Another pro-abortion supporter pinned the blame for Democrats not passing a law to codify abortion-on-demand on Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton, who started the whole thing like abortion should be legal, but rare, as if abortion is a tragedy,” the protester ranted. “We are here to say abortion is a basic right, a basic human right, and without this right, women are basically enslaved. And we will not stand for it.”
Another blamed Pelosi for not taking action when Democrats held a filibuster-proof majority under Barack Obama in 2009.
“Speaker Pelosi, this will be your legacy, 35 years of your reign of terror,” the man shouted. “You had a supermajority under [former President] Obama under which this should have been your top priority. Why did you keep this on the table? Because this is your most effective fundraising tool. That’s why.”
The way the Left responded to Pelosi’s call to action is a prime example of why the Democrats’ attempt to use abortion to help boost them in the Midterms will not work.
If the Supreme Court strikes down Roe, conservatives will achieve a long-sought win.
But Democrats will be powerless to do anything about it, which will only further depress their base and make them less enthused to turn out and vote this fall.
