All I’m going to say, is that you know it’s gotten bad when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Republicans agree on something!
There must be pigs flying right now because Pelosi condemned the violence that ANTIFA has been showing! Finally, a Democrat who admits that they see just how destructive the group is! She said that the “violent” members of the “anti-fascist” group should be locked up after they attacked Conservatives over the weekend in Berkeley.
She said, “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts,” according to San Francisco Chronicle, “The violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation.”
This is not a drill. I repeat, this is not a drill!

In addition, Pelosi told the Denver Post’s editorial board: “You’re not talking about the far left of the Democratic Party — they’re not even Democrats. A lot of them are socialists or anarchists or whatever.”
Thirteen people were arrested and five others were injured Sunday after more than 100 black-clad, hooded protesters with masks and weapons attacked and overwhelmed peaceful demonstrators.
“They came with black masks, they carried weapons, they were pounding people down with their fists and feet,” University of California-Berkeley College Republican Ashton Whitty told Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Monday night. “I knew I had to get out of there.
This absolutely needed to be done! The right completely denounced and condemned the actions of the Neo-Nazis and the KKK. We showed people that they do not represent Conservatives.

However, until now, Democrats haven’t condemned ATIFA or BLM, and were seemingly okay with the association between them and the hate groups.
I’m not saying that I like Nancy Pelosi now, but I do like her more than Maxine Waters now! That’s a step up!
