Hell Has Apparently Frozen Over Because Nancy Pelosi Just Brutally Denounced Antifa
Radical liberal Nancy Pelosi has an infamous record of accusing tea partiers of violence while ignoring the reality that it is, in fact, the left that uses violence to get attention. She is never known as one to call out the left for its thuggery and fight against free speech.
Yet Pelosi just shocked the political establishment, and most certainly has the leftist machine a little confused. A machine the usually gets to operate however it likes without fear of rebuke from leaders on its side.
Pelosi released a statement that doesn’t just reject leftist violence, it specifically and openly rebukes Antifa by name. Pinning hateful violence directly to the Antifa brand.
“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”
“In California, as across all of our great nation, we have deep reverence for the Constitutional right to peaceful dissent and free speech,” she said. “Non-violence is fundamental to that right. Let us use this sad event to reaffirm that we must never fight hate with hate, and to remember the values of peace, openness and justice that represent the best of America.”
We couldn’t agree more. Which is odd that we’re here agreeing with… Nancy Pelosi.
There’s a first time for everything.
