Star Parker, a Republican author and commentator, as well as founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, was asked by co-host Steve Doocy what she thought of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's statement criticizing Trump's inaction after the Charlottesville protest. Pelosi's statement read: "It shouldn’t take the president of the United States two days to summon the basic decency to condemn murder and violence by Nazis and white supremacists."
Star responded, saying, "That is not what happened. Nancy Pelosi is exploiting an opportunity that they think will play to their side. On Saturday, there were two sides that were in an American city that were ― then it was escalating very rapidly. No, the question became then, well, do you denounce the one part of it?"
"But you know what’s really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up," she continued. "These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here. So if Nancy Pelosi wants to say that we’re going to start shutting down First Amendment rights of a certain group of people, then what happens the next time that the homosexuals want to walk through an American city and protest and counter protesters come out?"
