The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.She is spreading misinformation. No, the Pelosi attack was not the result of the Republican Party regularly spreading hate. She is the one spreading hate to say this.
She also has a veiled threat against her enemies. She says "hold them accountable for their words", and apparently wants to punish politicians for their free speech.
Pres. Biden says similar things, and also blamed people who say the Presidential election was stolen. So did Barack Obama. Of course, H. Clinton has been saying for years that the 2016 election was stolen.
Clinton and Biden are essentially saying that no one should be allowed to disagree with them.
Perhaps you are going to argue that right-wing speech is more offensive than left-wing speech. I do not agree. For example, it is left-wingers who are grooming schoolchildren with sexualized messages. That is more offensive than anything I have seen on the Daily Stormer.
Update: The story that the Pelosi attacker is a MAGA fanatic appears to be a lie. See here and here.
Also, I wonder why San Francisco police were so timid. They apparently got to the scene promptly, and did nothing, according to the NY Times:
Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker, was thousands of miles away in Washington, D.C., protected by her security detail, but her husband, 82-year-old Paul Pelosi, was home. By the time police officers arrived after being dispatched at 2:27 a.m., they found the assailant and Mr. Pelosi wrestling for control of a hammer. The intruder then pulled the hammer away and “violently attacked” Mr. Pelosi with it in front of the officers, said William Scott, San Francisco’s chief of police.An intruder with a hammer attacking an 82-year-old resident should have been shot on sight. My guess is that SF cops are trained to not intervene when an rich old man appears to having rough gay sex with a much younger man.
This incident was soon after it was revealed that Nancy Pelosi threatened to punch Pres. Trump, and would be happy to go to jail for it. Probably a coincidence.
Update: There are still some fishy things about the incident. A TV station reported that the attacker was in his underwear, but that has now been denied. Also denials:
There were media reports that a third person opened the front door to allow officers to enter the Pelosi home. Jenkins said that was not true.So oneof them let the cops in, and then the cops watched the attacker beat Pelosi with a hammer? Hard to believe.
"At this time, we don't have information as to which of the men, Mr. Pelosi or the suspect, opened the door at the time," Jenkins said.
Update: More doubts about the attack story.
