Speaker Pelosi’s Use of the Term “Storm Troopers” is Vile and Offensive

Nancy Pelosi’s deliberate use of the term “storm troopers” to describe America’s homeland security officers quelling riots and protecting people in Portland and Chicago is a vile accusation against our good officers and offensive to Jews across the world.

Speaker Pelosi must know that the storm troopers were Hitler’s private regiment to round up innocent Jews and ship them off to concentration camps. In her unending despicable treatment of President Trump, she continues to propagandize against him through abhorrent language depicting anything done by the President as Hitlerian and actions by the administration as Nazi-like. This is a severe affront to America and to those Jews who were the genuine victims of real storm troopers.

Our homeland security officers in Portland and Chicago are responsible people sent in behalf of a very worthwhile and necessary mission, namely, protecting the lives of innocent people being threatened by ANTIFA and certain elements within Black Lives Matter, as well as protecting private property, homes and businesses, and federal buildings. They, unlike storm troopers, are not engaged in genocide.

One would think that all Jewish organizations would cry foul at Pelosi’s use of the term “storm troopers,” given that so many of our ancestors in Europe were the victims of actual storm troopers and their evil designs. Many of our ancestors would have cheered President Trump who has been outstanding in his goodwill towards Israel and the Jewish people.  However, most American Jewish organizations have redefined Jewishness as leftist politics with the Democrat Party being its vehicle and identification, ignoring and minimizing any unsavory pronouncement from a Democrat leader.  The success of the Democrat Party and its leftist agenda has become the most important priority of most American Jewish organizations.

Over the last few years Speaker Pelosi’s language has become dangerous and seems designed to incite anger and perhaps violence within segments of our population.  Afterwards, she condemns those wishing to protect themselves from that very violence and terrorism. She has eagerly embraced Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and other supremely anti-Israel factions to rule over her Democrat Party and run much of the business of the House of Representatives.  Her temperament has become too off-the-wall for someone so close to the presidency.
