In a recently surfaced video, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi reveals just how hypocritical she and the Democrats are when it comes to blaming “rhetoric” for the actions of crazed criminals and terrorists.
The video shows Pelosi, in the wake of the Congressional baseball field assassination attempt on GOP lawmakers that nearly ended the life of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), vociferously denying that extreme Democrat demagoguery against Republicans had anything to do with the shooter’s motivations.
Hateful lies, repeated ad nauseam by the Democrats regarding health care, were one of the motives for the shooting. Senator Rand Paul recently revealed that the shooter, a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, shouted ‘This is for healthcare!’ as he opened fire on Republican lawmakers.
What Pelosi said after the Congressional baseball shooting
While the motivations of this week’s serial bombing attempt are unclear thus far, the Congressional baseball shooter’s kill list and healthcare message made it clear – he was a democratic socialist who wanted to take out the political opposition.
Pelosi, at the time, wasn’t having any of it, angrily denying that her words and the words of her colleagues had anything to do with one man’s actions.
“How dare they!” she lashed out when asked if her party’s tone would be seen as a motivating force and hurt them in the future.
“This sick individual does something despicable and it was horrible what he did, hateful,” she added. “But for them to all of a sudden be sanctimonious as if, they don’t, never seen such a thing before …”
Take a look …
Recall, if you will, that Pelosi was in the midst of hanging out with a California Democrat Party chair who yelled “f*** Donald Trump” to an adoring crowd because the President supposedly wanted to “take away everybody’s health care.”

“First of all, the timing of it all,” she whined after the shooting. “Everybody is so sad, so concerned, so coming together … Don’t you think it’s strange that instead of praying … that they would start saying – ”
Pelosi then said she’d talk about it some other day. That day has now arrived and she doesn’t quite sound like the same person.
What Pelosi said after the bomb scare
While Pelosi had a point back then, that words are not responsible for the insane actions of any one person, she has done a complete 180 just a year later, now that it is politically convenient.
The Democrat leader has demanded that President Trump apologize for causing the actions of this week’s serial bomber.
President Trump, by contrast, asked the nation to unify, calling the incidents “abhorrent” and “despicable acts.”
Pelosi rejected those calls for unity, issuing a joint statement with Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
In joint statement, Senate and House Minority Leaders Schumer and Pelosi say President Trump’s comments today on the wave of pipe bomb packages “ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.” https://t.co/hK4Eecmjdo pic.twitter.com/DjbunZS0AR

“President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence,” the two raging hypocrites wrote. “Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions…”
It’s striking to see the same person, under the same circumstances, completely reverse course in one year’s time. That is, until you realize it’s Nancy Pelosi.
