Black clad Antifa goons have been attacking Trump supporters for over a year and things have only gotten worse. This past weekend in Berkeley, Antifa thugs attacked multiple innocent people, including some journalists.
While all this was happening, the media defended Antifa and Democrats remained silent. But something has changed. The Democratic Party’s internal pollsters must have figured out how bad this looks because after getting pressure from some people on the right, Nancy Pelosi released a statement denouncing Antifa.
Here’s Pelosi’s official statement:
Pelosi Statement Condemning Antifa Violence in Berkeley
“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. 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. 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.”
It’s good that Pelosi did this but average Americans are not going to forget all the violence caused by this group before now.
