Now this is interesting — a real “things that make you go hmmm” moment.

Turns out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the same woman who rode the back of the Charlottesville bus to deem dozens of Capitol Hill statues as offensive and President Donald Trump, as racist, has a dad who — get this — actually helped dedicate a Confederate-tied statue.

The Baltimore Sun reported that on May 2, 1948, then-Governor William Preston Lane Jr. and Pelosie’s father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., delivered remarks during the dedication ceremony for a monument of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

As Fox News noted: This is the same Pelosi family blood that just found several statues in Congress — statues that have stood for years and years and years — “reprehensible” in nature, needful of removal.

Can you say hypocrite?

Pelosi can’t. She just lets her actions say it for her.

This is what D’Alesandro said during the dedication, Fox reported: “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions. We must remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for the other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations.”

But wait, there’s more.

He also said this, of Jackson: “In these days of uncertainty and turmoil, Americans must emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”

Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.

Kellyanne Conway was quick to jump on the revelations.

“That’s rich,” she wrote, in a brief but incisive tweet.

Yes, rich is a good word. Political pandering are a couple others. But the best? Hypocrisy. Hypocrisy and the leftist attempt to tear down this administration, one slander and slur at a time.
