A conservative user attempted to float the standard Nancy Pelosi ‘San Francisco in decline’ trip. We had an honest answer.
It’s not Nancy Pelosi but the system most support
It is easy to make Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Progressives the parties responsible for the ills in San Francisco. The city is blue, expansive, and prohibitively expensive/
Conservative politicians love to knock Nancy Pelosi and Progressives, claiming that the policies we support do not work. Of course, they are entirely wrong. The success of the American Rescue Plan proves precisely the opposite as it pulled millions out of poverty and was responsible for the fastest recovery out of a near-depression than ever before.
A Politics Done Right commenter attempted to use Nancy Pelosi as a proxy again to attack Progressives. Unfortunately, as the video clip in this post shows, he was not very successful. You see, I used his attack to civilly point out that first of all, the commie trope does not fit Pelosi, because similarly to our President, she professes her unabashed commitment to capitalism.
I further point out that San Francisco is a city that strives on capitalism on steroids. The area is home to high-tech billionaires and corporations. The large population of homeless people is no more than the byproduct of the economic system. The system inherently makes waste of those unable or unwilling to navigate it as it inhumanely extracts under the tenet, ‘Whatever the market will bear.’
If adopted, Nancy Pelosi’s progressive policies would alleviate the homeless problem in San Francisco. But one should realize that as she fights for the everyday person, her support for our current economic system will always fight against her and her constituents’ primary interests.
My Books support (1) communication techniques & (2) our Progressive message delivery.
