A video from 2017 has resurfaced of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi describing a political tactic referred to as the “wrap-up smear” technique. The actions she describes is the exact smear campaign that the Democrats launched against the now sworn in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Pelosi described the smear tactic as a common “diversionary tactic” of the Republicans, although nowhere in history can anyone point to when any Republican has treated anyone, in any capacity in this degree of dishonorable and disgusting behavior that the Democrats levied on Kavanaugh.
“It’s a diversionary tactic,” she starts. “It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy, you demonize and then — the ‘wrap-up smear.’ You wanna talk politics? We call it the ‘wrap-up smear.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest,” Pelosi detailed, “and then you merchandise it.
And then you (gesturing to the media) write it, and then they say, ‘See, it’s reported in the press that this, this, this, and this.’ So they have that validation that the press reported the smear, and then it’s called the ‘wrap-up smear.'”
“And now I’m going to merchandise the press’s report on the smear that we made,” she repeated. “It’s a tactic. And it’s self-evident.”
Of course, this is the exact template used in the Kavanaugh smear. Uncorroborated, salacious, off-the-wall allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations of high school gang rape rings, were leaked to the media by the Left to smear Kavanaugh.
With the “validation” of a complicit, biased media’s reporting, Democrats endlessly pushed the baseless accusations, further ruining the reputation of Mr. Kavanaugh and Republicans in general.
Senator Dianne Feinstein was even able speak of gang rape rings during a highly-publicized Senate Judiciary Committee hearing because of the tactic so eloquently explained by Pelosi.
It didn’t matter that all of the allegations were uncorroborated with serious credibility gaps; the damage was already done to a good man, all for political gain. The “wrap-up smear,” if you will, was completed, and Kavanaugh had his name forever tarred.
It was truly a despicable low point in our nations history watching what the Democrats did to Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court nomination hearing process. They did not stop at tarnishing his name, they want to destroy the man and his family.
November 6th will be the test to see if they accomplished their goal of gaining the House and the Senate. If the American people are as disgusted as the Republican leaders are, the Democrats will not only lose the House and Senate, they will lose seats that were not at risk.
