Democrats have a major problem in 2018.

In order to win the midterm elections, they need to energize their base, but they also need to hide their unpopular policies from the American people.

That’s why Nancy Pelosi got a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach when she saw this undercover video.

Tedra Cobb is the Democrat nominee running for Congress in New York’s 21st Congressional District.

Cobb is looking to unseat Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik in November.

But in a meeting with teenage supporters, Cobb was caught on video admitting her campaign is based on a lie.

Cobb stated that if she told voters her true plan to ban firearms once in office she would never get elected.

The Democrat challenger stated:

“When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned,” Cobb continued “And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that.”

Cobb went on to declare that she was told by gun-grabbers at Moms Demand Action to hide her true intentions: “And she said, ‘Well, I want you to’ and I said, ‘I won’t win,'”

“I said Moms Demand [Action] says, and Tricia Pleau said, ‘Do not say that you want an assault rifle ban because you will not win.'”

Now the cat is out of the bag.

But this position is not unique to Cobb.

Democrats across the country pay lip service to the Second Amendment while secretly planning to ban firearms and gut gun rights once in office.

The left used this playbook of faking support for gun rights to sweep control of Congress in the 2006 midterm elections.

Then Congressman Rahm Emanuel recruited candidates to pose as Second Amendment supporters on the campaign trail, but would later be loyal anti-gun votes in Congress.

This strategy caught up with the Democrats once Barack Obama was in the White House and the rubber met the road.

Democrats could not hide behind campaign trail rhetoric anymore and they lined up behind Obama’s anti-gun agenda.

That led to the historic midterm wipeouts in 2010 and 2014.

Right now, the energy on the left is with anti-gun extremists.

One former liberal Supreme Court Justice has called for rewriting the Second Amendment to allow for firearm bans.

And Eric Swalwell – one of the most high profile Democrats in the House of Representatives – has introduced legislation that would allow for the government to confiscate firearms and permit armed agents to storm into homes and drag Americans who didn’t comply off to jail.

While the base is frothing at the mouth to confiscate guns, Democrats who are running in swing districts like New York’s 21st realize outwardly adopting this anti-gun fervor is a political death sentence.

But all that is washed away now that Cobb was caught on video revealing the Democrats true plans to attack gun rights.

And this undercover video could spell the end of Nancy Pelosi’s much hoped for blue wave.
