Pelosi Can’t Say We Are At ‘War’ With ISIS but ‘There is Actually a War on Women’

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won’t say America is “at war” with ISIS but has no problem promoting the Democratic message that “there is actually a war on women.”

During a Sept. 15th appearance on MSNBC, Pelosi was asked by Ronan Farrow, “Madam Leader, are we at war?”

“Well they, uh, you know, people use the term – uh, we have the war on drugs and the war on this and war on that,” Pelosi replied.

“Uh, the, we are a, we have initiated hostilities against ISIS, that's for sure.”

Pelosi has been far less hesitant to use the term “war" when using the term "war on women” when discussing the GOP.

“As we do this, there is actually a war on women,” Pelosi told the Feminist Majority Foundation’s summit in 2011. “We can speak with great authority on that subject because they are using that issue, the issue of a woman’s right to choose in every aspect.”

Pelosi has not only used the “war on women” phrase in her speeches but also in her fundraising efforts.

"The national media and our opponents will use our grassroots fundraising totals to measure the strength of our opposition to the Republicans’ War on Women," Pelosi said in a Democratic fundraising email in 2012.

The "war on women” rhetoric has escalated in use by many Democrats as a rallying cry for the mid-term elections.

But as Pelosi told Bill Maher last Friday, “We are not fear mongers. The Democrats are messengers of hope.”
