It’s earth-shaking when a confirmed leftist such as Nancy Pelosi publicly supports the unvarnished truth about a controversial matter.
One might wonder if she finally has gone off the deep end.
Nevertheless, simply because one finds 95% of her remarks to be offensive, in error, or just nonsensical, it’s no reason to disagree with her the 5% of the time she DOES make sense.
We may have just hit one of those rare occasions, my fellow Patriots.
What is this earth-shaking event? Well, the Left’s champion, Pelosi, has officially slammed the liberals’ favorite protest group.
Yes, she has issued an “unequivocal condemnation” against the violent “Antifa” protesters.
Given that these are the people who no doubt have unequivocally voted against Donald Trump, this is quite a statement for the House minority leader to make.
“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.”
You must support free speech for all.
Unless someone is advocating violence, treason, or other illegal activities, they have a right to be heard.
Violence against those exercising their freedom of speech is never acceptable, regardless of how odious you might find such opinions to be. Perhaps Mrs. Pelosi is finally figuring this out.
And it looks like at least some of those who condemned the president over his claim that both sides in the Charlottesville tragedy were in the wrong are coming to see the light:
“The events are the latest in a number of violent acts by the left-wing thugs, often seen all clad in black and smashing windows, but many acts have been largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Yet since President Trump highlighted the largely unreported left-wing violence surrounding the events of Charlottesville, Virginia, such acts have slowly been receiving more coverage.
Pelosi had previously called for the House to censure Trump over his response to Charlottesville, but with the increasing rise of left-wing violence, on Tuesday she released a statement condemning the left-wing rioters.
“‘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.'”
Thank you, Mrs. Pelosi. Not for supporting Trump proponents or Trump detractors or another other group, but for supporting America and our precious rights to freedom of speech as guaranteed by the First Amendment.
And it’s about damn time you condemned those who would violently attack those rights.
A little late to the party but still a decent move nonetheless.
