OPINION| Carmine Sabia| House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi along with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and other Democrats have be-clowned themselves.
On Monday the Democrats knelt in a moment of silence for George Floyd, a career criminal who was killed in an altercation with police.
And the House Speaker declared that Floyd, a man with drugs in his system, was a martyr for being killed by police.
The Democrats may get over-encumbered with their overlapping narratives. These pandering liars in Kente cloth, masks strapped all over their faces, can’t even kneel without having their bones shake. Where are the impeachment pens, Pelosi?pic.twitter.com/xdxehLyKvV

“The martyrdom of George Floyd gave American experience a moment of national anguish as we grieve for the black Americans killed by police brutality,” Pelosi said.
“Today this movement of national anguish is being transformed into a movement of national action as Americans from across the country peacefully protest to demand an end to injustice,” she said.
But it was not only Floyd who was named as a martyr. Pelosi read the names of other black “heroes” who have been “martyred.”
“Let us, my colleagues, just go over some of those names of martyrdom,’ she said as she named George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and others.

Nancy Pelosi failed to get a single dollar in state and local federal aid into the coronavirus bailout package, promising it would come in a later bill that is already dead. Over 3 million public employees will be fired as a result, largely Black and female. Yeah, kneel, kween.

Some of these people were unjustly killed by police or others but to call them martyrs is ridiculous.
Does she call the white people killed by black perpetrators martyrs? What about black people killed by black people?
Are the Americans, black or white or any other race, who have been murdered by illegal aliens martyrs to the scourge of illegal immigration?
The Democrats knelt at the capitol for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the same amount of time former police Officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd.
“We were there for eight minutes and 46 seconds on our knees. My members will attest it’s a very long time,” the Speaker said.
“It’s a very long time, and I graciously led them in falling over when it was over so that they could do the same thing, but here we are,” she said.
Editor’s Note: Then Nancy tried to get up …
