Following an outburst by Republicans offended by Nancy Pelosi’s demand the Mississippi flag be removed from the 50-state flag display on the Capitol grounds, as well as all other flags and or symbols deemed racially insensitive be removed as well, the animated House Minority Leader reportedly issued a very confident threat against Republicans who continued to oppose her latest attempt to divide Americans against themselves.
Via a D.C. Whispers source:
“After she was dismissed from the House floor, Mrs. Pelosi made her way back to her office with staff in tow. She appeared both very excited and livid. Apparently at one point she jabbed a crooked, trembling right finger into the air several times for emphasis while declaring, ‘Just wait – we will hang them by that (Confederate) flag!’ “
Republicans were outraged at Mrs. Pelosi’s demand the state flag of Mississippi be removed from the Capitol grounds because a corner of that flag incorporates the Confederate flag:
Here is video footage of the outburst on the House floor that preceded the alleged comments by the House Minority Leader. The initial outburst begins at the 5:40 mark and is initially from Democrats realizing the Republicans intend to quickly end discussion by sending the resolution to committee. Congresswoman Pelosi then attempts to get a roll call vote on the proposed resolution as Democrats shout their approval while rightfully angry Republicans are openly disgusted by her highly divisive political stunt. Pelosi is seen smiling at the end of the video, clearly pleased by her own actions in attempting to further promote racial division throughout the country.
