You know it’s bad when Democrat leadership begins calling words “dangerous” only if and only if a Republican says them.
The war against “hate speech” and “misinformation” results in nothing but a stifling of free speech rights, which has become glaringly evident in the recent months.
In a closed-door meeting Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democratic lawmakers the latest name-calling by Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert is “indecent” and “dangerous.”
Pelosi stopped short of proposing a House vote to punish Boebert but suggested the party won’t ignore her public comments against Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Marxist Democrat.
Boebert, who has frequently clashed with Democrats, has come under sharp criticism after a video surfaced from September showing the America First Republican calling Omar a member of “the Jihad squad” and suggesting she is a terrorist, both happen to be true.

“These people do not respect the House that they serve in,” Pelosi told Democrats without directly naming Boebert.
Does that include members of your own party, Nancy?
“Their [GOP] disrespect is dangerous. It’s a dangerous thing. We cannot allow them to endanger members of Congress, especially because of her faith.”
Democrats have already taken historic steps in using their majority vote to punish Republicans for their comments and social media attacks against Democrats.
Last month, they voted to strip Rep. Paul Gosar from both of his committee assignments after Gosar tweeted a meme video about AOC.
Party lawmakers removed Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee positions in February after old social media posts surfaced in which she appeared to endorse violent rhetoric aimed at Pelosi and other Democrats.
Meanwhile, far-left ‘squad’ Democrats routinely refer to Republicans as Ku Klux Klan members, white supremacists, and more without any semblance of repercussion.
Omar, who has been criticized for posting anti-Semitic tweets, later called Boebert “a buffoon” on Twitter.
Democrats are the perfect of example of the whiny brat who loves to lob insults but feigns victimhood when the sentiment is returned.
Notice how Omar immediately clings to her skin color and faith while simultaneously calling out others who do the exact same thing.
Interesting how that works…
