Nancy Pelosi denounces violent Antifa protesters

August 30, 2017

  It seems like for weeks the media has been trying to paint Antifa as non-violent protesters despite their proclivity for violence. (And despite their moniker they tend to use fascist tactics to shut down opposing views.) Last week Paul Ryan felt the need to be politically correct when he defended Antifa–siding with the violent group over Donald Trump.

  This week Nancy Pelosi, of all people, called out Antifa for their violence, here is more:

Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement late Tuesday denouncing violent left-wing “Antifa” protesters, saying they deserve “unequivocal condemnation” — a move that marks a significant shift away from a Democratic narrative that attacked President Trump for highlighting violence from the “alt-left.”

Pelosi released the statement in the wake of the latest bout of left-wing violence in Berkeley, California, over the weekend. “Antifa” protesters jumped barricades and assaulted peaceful demonstrators at a right-wing event on Sunday.

“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.”

Of course she could not help but take a shot at Donald Trump and the right…

  Some of us have been speculating that the left was going to take the resistance movement too far and it would eventually backfire on them and last weekend in Berkeley Antifa crossed that line to the point where Nancy Pelosi had to speak out against them. Will other Democratic leaders follow her lead? Elizabeth Warren, where do you stand on these violent protesters?

  I am still waiting for Paul Ryan to retract his previous statement…

    It makes me wonder if Antifa is moving beyond the control of Pelosi and the rest her running dogs.

    Hillary maybe?

    Soros?

    Saw this and thought it would be a good addition: Communist Control Act of 1954
    “In February 1954, at a time of great public concern and anxiety about Communist subversion fed by the Cold War and Communist successes in Korea and Indochina, Senator Joseph McCarthy denounced the Democrats as the “party of communism, betrayal and treason.” McCarthy’s tactics in rooting out and exposing supposed Communists in the United States came to be known as “McCarthyism.” These tactics were not the exclusive practice of the senator from Wisconsin. McCarthy was supported by Senator Robert A.Taft of Ohio and other conservative Republicans in Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower, who never publicly criticized McCarthy, benefited from the Republican charge that the Democrats were soft on Communism in his 1952 campaign against Adlai Stevenson.
    Sen. Hubert Humphrey (MN) believed that liberals should take the lead in fighting Communism as well as all other totalitarian creeds and movements. http://www.encyclopedia.com/history/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/communist-control-act-1954
    Well that didn’t turn out like “that”, rather the opposite! … liberals are the platform for commies, and the Dem*s violence is the “only” approved violence = protecting their liberties. Yep, Antifa better come under P. thumb or experience her wrath! 😱

      Thanks for that info. McCarthy was right and now the Democrats are doing it all over again.

    It did not take long for Ryan to issue a statement condemning antifa. As soon as Nancy declared antifa violent then that gave the green light. What a waste of a Speakership!

      That’s just so sickening but true CJ. He needs to wear a ‘p__ hat’ and just ‘admit’ his shame.

      I didn’t hear Ryan condemn Antifa but you are right, he waited for someone else to do it first. That does not sound like leadership to me.

    Before Nancy “saw the light”, she was interview about ANTIFA violence and the idiot just kept saying”…but they are fighting Nazi’s…” therefore it’s understood that what they are doing is ok.

      As long as they’re not ‘fighting her’ OR obstructing her Agenda role, she’s O.K.
