’Defend democracy’: Pelosi calls Trump ’ongoing threat’ in impeachment debate

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called President Trump ’an ongoing threat to our national security’ whose actions ’gave us no choice’ but to move forward with impeaching him before the start of the impeachment vote Wednesday. On the House floor, Pelosi read the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, then said, ’today we are here to defend democracy for the people,’ to applause from fellow Democratic lawmakers.

Doublespeak is language that deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms (e.g. "downsizing" for layoffs and "servicing the target" for bombing), in which case it is primarily meant to make the truth sound more palatable. It may also refer to intentional ambiguity in language or to actual inversions of meaning. In such cases, doublespeak disguises the nature of the truth. Doublespeak is most closely associated with political language.

Pretty sure Pelosi meant to say "Defeat Democracy". It's the only way to view her party's conduct these past 3 years.

Democracy (direct/representative does not matter) is a terrible idea to begin with. As let me quote Aristotle: "Republics decline into democracies and democracies degenerate into despotisms." Though certainly Trump is not a despot, as we are merely approaching the despot phase and have been slowly but distinctly approaching it for decades. https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/aristotle_136351

@Paul C Agreed. She should be calling him a criminal on the loose and likely to keep offending. Much more accurate.
