You’ve all heard the expression “limousine liberal.”
We have lots of them in the U.S. Congress, Hollywood, the corporate boardrooms.
But I want you to know that the woman vying tomorrow to be the next speaker of the House is no “limousine liberal.”
The phrase doesn’t begin to do justice to the hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi.
That’s why I’ve dubbed her a “caviar commie.”
It’s more accurate, and I’ll prove it.
First of all, if Democrats win the House tomorrow, Pelosi won’t only be the first woman speaker, she will also be the wealthiest.
How much is this unassuming “grandma” worth? The Center for Responsive Politics puts her in the $55 million neighborhood. Pretty nice neighborhood, huh?
Despite her protestations about those “tax cuts for the rich,” she has never mentioned returning them to the federal Treasury where they rightfully belong. Go figure.
As I have reported previously in this space,
Pelosi, the winner of the 2003 Cesar Chavez award from the United Farm Workers, hires only non-union workers on her $25 million Napa Valley vineyard.
Maybe this explains her firm opposition to any efforts to enhance border security and the flow of illegal cheap labor into the country from Mexico, speculates Investor’s Business Daily.
According to Peter Schweizer’s account in “Do As I Say (Not As I Do),” the luxury resort and restaurants she partly owns are also strictly non-union. The exclusive country club she partly owns failed to comply with existing environmental regulations for the past eight years – including a failure to protect endangered species.
Those rules are for mere mortals, not the caviar Comintern.
Maybe you’re saying, “Farah, I can see why Pelosi would be called a ‘limousine liberal’ based on what you report, but why do you take it so far as to call her a ‘caviar commie'”?
Good question. And here’s the rest of the story.
As only WND has reported, Pelosi is a long-time member of the “Progressive Caucus” – or, as I call it, the Congressional Red Army Caucus.
In fact, she has even served on the executive committee of the socialist-leaning Progressive Caucus, a bloc of about 60 votes or nearly 30 percent of the minority vote in the lower chamber.
Until 1999, the website of the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America. Following an expose of the link between the two organizations in WND, the Progressive Caucus established its own website under the auspices of Congress. Another officer of the Progressive Caucus, and one of its guiding lights, is avowed socialist Rep. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent.
The Democratic Socialists of America’s chief organizing stated goal is to work within the Democratic Party and remove the stigma attached to “socialism” in the eyes of most Americans.
“Stress our Democratic Party strategy and electoral work,” explains an organizing document of the DSA. “The Democratic Party is something the public understands, and association with it takes the edge off. Stressing our Democratic Party work will establish some distance from the radical subculture and help integrate you to the milieu of the young liberals.”
Nevertheless, the goal of the Democratic Socialists of America has never been deeply hidden. Prior to the cleanup of its website in 1999, the DSA included a song list featuring “The Internationale,” the worldwide anthem of communism and socialism. Another song on the site was “Red Revolution” sung to the tune of “Red Robin.” The lyrics went: “When the Red Revolution brings its solution along, along, there’ll be no more lootin’ when we start shootin’ that Wall Street throng. …” Another song removed after WorldNetDaily’s expose was “Are You Sleeping, Bourgeoisie?” The lyrics went: “Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping? Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie. And when the revolution comes, We’ll kill you all with knives and guns, Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie.”
In the last six years, the Progressive Caucus has been careful to moderate its image for mainstream consumption.
Now, do I exaggerate when I characterize Nancy Pelosi, not as a “limousine liberal,” but as a “caviar commie”?
I think not. But tomorrow is Election Day. You decide for yourself. Cast your vote wisely.
