House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke to MSNBC's Joy Reid on Sunday about her support for freeing prisoners during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. The speaker quoted the Bible as she declared some prisoners have already served enough time on their sentences.
After Joy Reid asked the speaker if releasing prisoners would be part of the next coronavirus relief package, Speaker Pelosi quoted scripture as she argued for prisoners to be released.
"In our caucus, we are very devoted to the Gospel of Matthew," the speaker said preposterously. "'When I was hungry, you fed me. When I was homeless, you sheltered me. When I was in prison, you visited me,' and so this for us is part of our value system."
Christians aren't against people visiting inmates in prison. They have a problem with prisoners visiting innocent people inside their homes, at night, before they victimize them. And how does the party of abortion derive any sort of value system from the bible?
"We will have language being developed by the Judiciary Committee to have some order and clarity so that some people can leave who really don't need to be there," the speaker continued.
Pelosi then accused the Trump administration of not being "clear" and repeated her preposterous mantra of "science, science, science."
"What is the science of this, of these people being together there unnecessarily in many cases, some of them having served enough of a sentence to leave?" Pelosi wondered.
What does the science say about emptying prisons? Well, the recidivism rate in the United States is 77 percent for prisoners after five years of their release, so the science tells us it's a complete disaster. And we're in the middle of a pandemic where jobs are being lost at an unprecedented rate. How does the speaker imagine these criminals would survive? Most of them don't have mansions with $24,000 refrigerators fully-stocked with gallons of gourmet ice cream.
Pelosi thinks if she repeats her asinine mantra of "science, science, science" and throws in some scripture she can push forward evil, disastrous policies to further her radical agenda.
