Last Sunday, the Democrats voted to retain Nancy Pelosi as House speaker. On Monday, Speaker Pelosi’s first priority for the 117th Congress was gender-neutral language rules in the House.

So with a pandemic continuing to ravage the nation, hundreds of thousands of Americans hurting from the loss of loved ones, millions of Americans out of work and thousands of entrepreneurs reeling from the closures of their businesses, “Person” Pelosi’s first act is to set absurd, leftist restrictions on the language that can be used in Congress. For over 200 years you could call a woman who gave birth to a child a mother, a father a father, a sister a sister and a brother a brother — even in Congress. No more.

This new rule is a direct attack on the American nuclear family and a specific goal of Black Lives Matter. Last July, the radical Marxist group proudly declared on its website that among its goals was the destruction of the “western prescribed nuclear family.” The group later removed the entire page in an attempt to cover up its radical agenda (and to help with fundraising).

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries of New York has defended his party’s proposed House rule by saying it reflects the “gorgeous mosaic” of America. Wrong. It is stupid, liberal, Pelosi garbage. What happened to common sense in America?
