This should tell you just how Nancy Pelosi feels about America’s police officers

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has just sent a message loud and clear to America’s police officers

(NationalSentinel) It’s the kind of political fight you take up when you win elections in your home district with 80 percent of the vote, but it’s also one that reveals much about your true character.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has just sent a message loud and clear to America’s police officers: She things they’re pigs.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, Pelosi fought to keep “Cops as Pigs” artwork, claiming there were other “politically-themed” pieces hanging near the Capitol:

The controversial painting was selected as part of a student art competition in Rep. William Lacy Clay’s district. The Missouri Democrat hung it in the Capitol, and Republicans immediately demanded that it should be taken down.

After the Architect of the Capitol agreed the painting should be removed, Pelosi appealed the decision to the House Office Building Commission. Pelosi herself sits on that panel, which also includes House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The vote was 2-1 to uphold the Architect’s decision; Pelosi was the one vote seeking to leave the “artwork” hanging.

Pelosi complained that the artwork was “retroactively” banned; Ryan, in a separate statement, reminded Pelosi that it was removed under a rule disqualifying such artwork in 2007, when Pelosi was Speaker of the House.

In any event, this entire episode makes very clear where Pelosi’s sympathies lie. Maybe she’d change her tune if she wasn’t surrounded 24-7 by good cops with guns keeping her safe from bad people.
