Nancy vs China: Why She Was Right All Along
- August 5, 2022
Nancy Pelosi is not a dove.
She’s a hawk.
In fact, she may well be the most hawkish Democrat around.
In 1991, Pelosi was in Beijing on an official visit. At the time, she was just a congresswoman representing California.
It was meant to be boring. Routine. Unremarkable.
That’s when Pelosi did something rebellious.
She defied her Chinese escorts, and she slipped away just long enough to enter Tiananmen Square.
Pelosi and her colleagues unfurled a small banner.
It had a poignant message: ‘To Those Who Died for Democracy in China.’
This, of course, was in direct reference to the tragic events that happened just two years prior. That’s when the communist regime sent troops and tanks into the Square to crush student protestors. It was a bloody massacre.
The brutal irony here is that the Chinese word ‘Tiananmen’ directly translates to ‘Gate of Heavenly Peace’.
