Nancy Pelosi Is Embarrassed at Oxford Debate

The guy speaking is Winston Marshall. If that sounds vaguely familiar, he's the musician who was forced out of the semi-popular band Mumford and Sons for saying something incredibly inoffensive like -- IIRC -- that Jordan Peterson wasn't all bad.


Something like that. Something like "we should read books before banning them" or something incendiary like that.

Update: Mark1971 reminds me of the reason for the cancellation -- he tweeted something vaguely and weakly positive about Andy Ngo's book about the terrorist organization antifa.

Our elites have decided that they will no longer pretend there's any distance between them and their protected and paid street terror paramilitaries. They've decided it's illegal to criticize their blackshirts.

That got him cancelled and thrown out of an industry.

Below, the part of his summation in which he points out that the left keeps saying Trump rejected the outcome of the election, but Nancy Pelosi herself claimed the 2016 election was "hijacked."

She interrupts him, rudely, and says "It was."

After humiliating her, he read a series of shrieking headlines from the faux elites of the leftwing Democrat Media claiming that Democracy Has Failed Us! because Trump won in 2016.

Nancy Pelosi claimed that the elites have to intervene in elections, because voters are "blocked" from getting the correct information. She then calls voters"poor souls" "looking for some answers," and says "We've given them to them" but they're "blocked" from receiving the Democratic Truth due to their minds being "clouded" by "God, gays, and guns."

After listening to that, I'm no longer a populist.

I'm a fucking revolutionary.

Burn. It. Down.

Below, his whole summation.

You know the twats at Oxford are now second-rate because they claimed that the leftwingers carried the proposition that "populism is a threat to democracy."

It's not real consent if the people are basing their decisions on incorrect information. In order to prevent that, the people should be prevented from making their own choices to preserve their own freedom of choice in their government.

18 Guatemala’s Secretary General also admitted the US is harboring illegal alien pedophiles and murders. These are people Guatemala WANTS to put in prison but Biden’s Admin is protecting them instead of cooperating. As you’ll find out, it’s clear the AG and SG are being targeted. Guatemala’s President recently met with Sec of State Tony Blinken and Joe Biden.

After this interview he announced a plot to remove the AG.

Actually, I get the impression that D's didn't particularly care for Harry either, but history books aren't replete with stories of the idiot populous either. If todays elites win then the demonization of we the people will continue unabated. Of course, the same thing will happen if they lose, because the culture is lost to an "elite" full of dullards and midwits who fancy themselves better by dint of going along with recieved dogma.

Welcome to my side, Ace. I've been saying for years that these bastards deserve the Princess de Lamballe treatment.

If the GOP actually wanted to win (I know), "Their minds are clouded by God, gays and guns" would be Nasty's "basket of deplorables" moment and she'd never be able to go out in public without being showered in urine and feces.

But the GOP thinks exactly the same as she does. Just ask McConnell. Or Johnson. Or Chaney. Or 99.5% of those nickelfuckers.

My first Trump vote was to scream "can you hear me now?" My second Trump vote was for revenge.

My next Trump vote will be for the fucking Purge.

Actually the military guys plus Jimmy Byrnes (FDR's chief of staff) along with the saner of Dem pols blocked Henry Wallace from another term as VP specifically because they hated the guy's politics and feared Russian influence on Wallace.

The sane Dems who knew FDR was dying forced Truman on the ticket so that Wallace would not become president by death of FDR.

FDR grudgingly acquiesced but Eleanor was horrified as she luvved her some Wallace politics.

188 Sadly, they're right in a sense, although as usual for the wrong reasons: democracy *has* failed.

Democracy is only really viable in a mostly homogenous population where people basically agree on their fundamental values and view of the world. In that situation you can vote on the rest of the comparatively small details. Expecting people to "vote" constantly on basic existential issues is a recipe for disaster.

All of this is happening because a small group of subversive elites has taken control of our government and have used their power to impose their will through the corrupt courts while they hide behind the sham of "OuR DeMoCraCy!. "Voting" has been a sick joke for a long time.

And now that they've succeeded in ethnically replacing the native white population of the US, "democracy" in the future will just be ethnic warfare where foreign tribes battle to loot whatever's left for themselves and take out their grievances on whites.

197 Thinking back over my school life (pre-college), I had three teachers I would consider "great." Two were men and one was a woman (in college, it was one of each).

It was even in terms of the truly worst teachers. Of the four teachers I would consider "unspeakably awful," it was two of each sex. The undifferentiated middle I honestly don't remember. Probably mostly women since most teachers are, but it's irrelevant. They were the undifferentiated middle.

Of course, I finished all of my schooling by the end of the second Bush 43 administration. Time (and the broader environment) is probably the bigger factor than the sex of the teacher, if I had to guess.

I love it.
I once had an atheist tell me that if God exists, He wouldn't really care what we did. We're like ants to Him. You don't care what an ant does, do you?

Both the kid in the story and the atheist are making the same mistake. They're imputing our limitations on God. Part of the reason I don't care about what the ant does is because I don't have the capacity to divide my attention infinite ways and care about all things. I can only consider one or two things at a time. I have to pick and choose. I have also not known the ant or its ancestors all their lives.

God can watch the cookies AND the apples at the same time. God can care about and perfectly know all the creatures at once.

227 Harry was a corrupt machine politician who let Stalin take China and cost the lives of millions in Korea. Called Dewey "Hitler". Threatened to punch people out who didn't like his shrewish wife or ugly daughter's singing career. Would go on but the thought of him and all other Democrats sickens me.

Posted by: Auspex at May 14, 2024 02:31 PM (j4U/Z)

Yeah, that mfer would let me win in Korea. Of course I ignored all the intelligence about the buildup of the Chinese along the Yalu, might have something to do with it???

Julius Caesar: The Making of a Dictator
Nearly 5 centuries of ancient Roman democracy was overthrown in just 16 years by one man.

The dramatic story of how nearly five centuries of ancient Roman democracy was overthrown in just 16 years… by one man. This is the story of a brazen, ambitious power-grab that saw Julius Caesar consolidate the vast power of Rome in his own hands.

Nearly 5 centuries of ancient Roman democracy was overthrown in just 16 years by one man.


The modern left would have HATED the laws and processes of the Roman republic but...leaving that for now, the Republic had been deeply damaged by the war between Sulla and Marius before Julius rose to power.

Caesar was one of the few Marians to survive Sulla's revenge.

So...it isn't that Julius destroyed the Republic by himself and the real lesson of the Roman republic is the dangers of Empire and ever enlarging state...

306 Nancy Pelosi claimed that the elites have to intervene in elections, because voters are "blocked" from getting the correct information. She then calls voters"poor souls" "looking for some answers," and says "We've given them to them" but they're "blocked" from receiving the Democratic Truth due to their minds being "clouded" by "God, gays, and guns."


High Priestess of the God State has spoken. I appreciate the clarity. Whether it resonates with the general public is doubtful. Somebody could make an effective commercial out of this. 'Could'. Oh well.

307 >Which makes me wonder just how well-endowed Jolene was.

Yeah if you saw how smoking hot Dolly Parton was in her youth, you wouldn't believe that Jolene ever existed.

308 However, blame Joe for my comment on the internet woman who's a booby.

P.S. It was a joke, as was his comment.

You should really take responsibility for your comment instead of blaming Joe for his caption that lead to you make a broad generalization about a woman's intelligence level because she has a bikini photo on the internet.

Besides, I would venture a guess that there's a few million out there that don't know, nor give a rats behind about Oxford.

310 >>Why did Pelosi agree to this in the first place? Very strange.

Because leftists truly believe they are brilliant, particularly leftist politicians. They are protected, coddled and sucked up to by the media, lobbyists and anyone else needing government favors and they start to believe they bullshit people tell them.

Pelosi once described herself as a master legislator or some such bullshit. She's probably never written a bill in her life and has a huge staff that tells here what to do and say but that makes her smart.

311 Pelosi all but said the Democrats will accept nothing other than a "win" in November. They'll cheat (obviously).

If Trump (or the GOP candidate) pulls off a squeaker and wins they will not abide the results.

It'll be chaos...

Bet on it.

313 Dems already figured they’ll lose the popular vote this Nov? If they string enough electoral votes together they’re going to change their tune about doing away with the Electoral College.

314 Last rally Trump said they were going to cheat and the only way to beat them was to swamp them with votes. (paraphrasing)

Come on man, it has to be approved popular consent or the whole Precious Democracy thing goes down in flames!

========

It's not real consent if the people are basing their decisions on incorrect information. In order to prevent that, the people should be prevented from making their own choices to preserve their own freedom of choice in their government.

321 2 Harry was a corrupt machine politician who let Stalin take China and cost the lives of millions in Korea.

Looking at a map of the Korean war it is amazing to see the first year or so where the war is dynamic versus the last three where the government just sends boys out onto a frozen hill to get killed with no plan or expectation of victory

That’s why he had to fire McArthur, he would have won

322 Does Oxford do what the Munk debate does and poll the audience before and after, to see which side moved the audience?

Posted by: MikeN at May 14, 2024 04:29 PM (XygMV)

323 322: It is to be noted that the Oxford students voted not to fight to for king and country when confronted with the threat of Nazism in the 1930s. The spirit of Oxford is the spirit of elitism, removed from the realm of reality, ordinary morality, the sense of honor, and most importantly of duty.

We see it today in our universities.
