I feel like I say this almost every single day, but Nancy Pelosi is off her rocker. During a recent press conference, she compared Dreamers to Japanese Americans who were placed in internment camps during WWII. I kid you not.
“A week and a half ago, I was in Chicago, and I saw this art exhibit that I was invited to see. It’s called ‘And then they came for me,’ and it’s about the internment of the Japanese-American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War II while their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II,” Pelosi said.
“And now they’re coming for the Dreamers,” she continued. “This is something—we owe these Dreamers for their patriotism, their courage, their optimism to come forward, but it’s about America too.”
“They’re coming for the Dreamers.” She seriously believes we want to throw them into camps.
“We cannot let them come for them, so while the president thinks that giving six months time for Congress to act, we want to do that sooner. We want to do it within six weeks and hopefully we can by supporting the Dream Act that is in the House and the Senate,” Pelosi added.
That was a terrible time in history– one we NEVER want to repeat. But this is the dumbest comparison ever. We’re not looking to hunt down DACA recipients and shove them into internment camps. That is what you call FEARMONGERING.
