During her eight-hour circus act Wednesday on behalf of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi waxed eloquent about her six-year-old grandson’s desire to have “brown skin and brown eyes,” just like his Hispanic friend Antonio.
Because that would be way cooler than being just some white kid.
“I’m reminded of my own grandson,” said Pelosi. “He is Irish, English, whatever, whatever, and Italian-American, he is a mix. But he looks more the other [Italian] side of the family, shall we say. And when he had his sixth birthday… he had a very close friend whose name is Antonio, he’s from Guatemala. And he has beautiful tan skinned, beautiful brown eyes, and this was a proud day for me, because when my grandson blew out the candles on his cake, they said did you make a wish?
“He said yes, he made a wish. What is your wish? I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio,” she continued, resisting the urge to break out in song. “So beautiful. So beautiful. The beauty is in the mix. The face of the future for our country is all-American. And that has many versions.”
Now there’s obviously nothing wrong with being Hispanic, or black, or even white for that matter, although that last part is up for debate if you’re anywhere left of center these days.
It’s OK to be proud of who you are, unless you’re white. These days, “whiteness” is something to be ashamed of, if you’re a liberal. They’ll make it seem as if it’s because white people are somehow responsible for pretty much all of the world’s evil, but in reality we know it’s just because a majority of whites won’t vote for them!
The new strategy? Why, bring in the people who will!
Needless to say, Pelosi’s ridiculous virtue-signalling drew plenty of well deserved mockery on Twitter:
Listen to Nancy Pelosi talk about her grandson wanting to have “beautiful tan skin” and “beautiful brown eyes”. like his friend Antonio – a Guatemalan.
White guilt is disgusting. It’s even worse when you brainwash a child to hate his own skin and eye color. pic.twitter.com/nLXp5OIfDD

Instead telling her grandson he is perfect as he is & he should be proud. She's teaching him to hate himself. To put this into a child's head is ludicrous. And using this for a political ploy is sick.
I'm proud of who I am, never wished I was someone elsehttps://t.co/mL2ANMf7fh

There were many weird moments during Nancy Pelosi's ridiculous filibuster, but this was by far the weirdest.
Nancy Pelosi describes how her grandson badly wishes he was Hispanic…

Are we going to bring up the fact that Nancy Pelosi said her grandson wished he was Guatemalan and that is a reason we need to pass DACA? Bizarre

Nancy Pelosi said her grandson said he wished he had “brown skin and brown eyes.”
So he wished he weren't her grandson?
I can empathize.

Nancy Pelosi: Such a proud day for me when my grandson wished he had "brown skin like Antonio."
Only an elite liberal white lady would tell a story like that in public.

But this comment from conservative firebrand Dinesh D’Souza calling Pelosi’s “brown-skin wannabe” grandson a “little weirdo” who needs therapy REALLY lit the internet on fire.
So Nancy Pelosi’s grandson is a brown-skin wannabe. This is as twisted as me wanting to be white. Put the little weirdo into therapy
— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) February 8, 2018
D’Souza’s brilliant retort, which drew well over 20,000 likes and over 8,000 comments, drew plenty of support.
This is the FUNNIEST thing I've read in days, maybe weeks! https://t.co/yWS8FdzR1k

@NancyPelosi shows more love to the DACA /non-white children that to get love from grandma Nancy, he wants to be like the DACA look. what a disgusting thing to do to a 5 years old. Agree, he needs therapy. Grandma Pelosi made him a weirdo https://t.co/6WubhL6nMm

When she said he wanted to be brown, that's about as credible as if she'd said he was a woke 6 year old who rebuked a racist on the bus and all the other passengers applauded. https://t.co/GRNPnNJpuT

C'mon now, you know it's Really SAD that this woman has caused this in this child. She's teaching him to see his own race as inferior & not good enough. https://t.co/HGQEIySfYv
