If there’s anyone on earth who can heal Nancy Pelosi’s bitterness and “negative attitudes,” it might be the Dalai Lama.
During a Congressional visit to Dharamsala, North India, on Tuesday, the House Minority Leader admitted the Dalai Lama was praying for her to rid herself of her negativity.
“What we see here today in support of the Tibetan people, what we have said– what we say we have said to the top leadership of– in the Chinese government,” Pelosi said, stumbling over her words.
“We recognize that China weighs heavily on any country, any corporation, any person, and Richard Gere can attest to that,” she said, citing the Hollywood actor, “who speaks out for the Tibetan people.
“China uses its economic leverage to silence the voices of friends of Tibet. But if we do not speak out against oppression in Tibet and in (the) rest of China because of China’s economic power, we lose all moral authority to talk about human rights anywhere else in the world,” Pelosi said.
She continued, “We will not be silenced. You will not be silenced.
“So, the brutal tactics of the Chinese government– I won’t go into them because His Holiness prayed for me that I would rid myself of my negative attitude about dwelling on the negative too much,” she said as her Congressional colleagues laughed behind her.
Pelosi went on to focus on the negative.
