Over the weekend, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi got blasted by her own party after the left-wing progressive cancelation mob called to dethrone her from her long-held position in the House of Representatives.
The cancelation mob has been on a warpath in recent months as they’ve demanded the cancelation of sports team names, food brands, statues, people and much more.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Pelosi is the target of an attack from the left and will face Shahid Buttar in the general election in November. Buttar is, like many left-leaning insurgent candidates, a Democratic socialist with, as Townhall notes, a resume of progressive bona fides, including several trips to Burning Man, and plenty of “socially conscious music” and poetry available for free on SoundCloud. He is also an immigrant and a Muslim and wears his hair in a “man-bun.”
“Buttar finished second in the primary and represents Pelosi’s first general election challenger from within the Democratic Party in 30 years,” Townhall reports.
Unlike Pelosi, Buttar supports the Green New Deal, single-payer health care (or, in the alternative, the more “realistic” “Medicare for All” plan proposed during the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)), the edicts of “intersectional feminism,” a significant hike in the national minimum wage, and fully open borders.
Pelosi has, despite her position as a leading Congressional opponent to President Donald Trump, been a top target of Justice Democrats and Democratic socialists. In 2016, her office was the first stop for then-newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who joined a Green New Deal protest outside the Speaker’s front door rather than step in for an appointment. Since then, progressives like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have challenged Pelosi to censure or otherwise punish them for statements made about far-left policies.
Buttar and his campaign launched an attack on the Speaker on Saturday with the hashtag, “#PelosiMustGo.”
“Nancy Pelosi stands in the way of progress and has done so for decades. That’s why #PelosiMustGo. My name is Shahid Buttar, and I approve this message,” the Buttar campaign tweeted.
Buttar wasn’t the only person to tweet “#PelosiMustGo.”
“t’s pretty simple,” said on Twitter user. “There’s going to be Nancy Pelosi and Shahid Buttar on the ballot in CA-12, two Democratic candidates. So your choices are someone who’ll fight for $100 millionaires like herself or someone who’ll fight for you on issues like Medicare-for-all.”
“I actually understand why liberals and centrists are lashing out at the #PelosiMustGo hashtag because I used to be them. I used to think all Democrats had our best interests at heart. I had no idea corporate Democrats like @SpeakerPelosi were putting corporations over people,” said a liberal organizer.
“Nancy Pelosi first ran for congress in 1987 against Harry Britt, an openly gay socialist & activist during the civil rights movement. She has single-handedly undermined the working class ever since, working endlessly to protect the power of the wealthy,” said another user.
