I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – sometimes, a Democrat gets something right. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
But I’m still really surprised that this broken clock is Nancy Pelosi.
Let’s talk facts – the Left has been incredibly inconsistent in their outrage lately. They’ll get angry at Trump for deporting illegal immigrants, but not Obama – and Obama did more of them.
They’ll get angry at Melania for dressing up to visit Houston, for God’s sake, but not at Michelle for wearing nearly the same thing during moments of crisis.
And the big one? They’ll condemn the white supremacist left for acts of terror and violence. But they won’t condemn Antifa for beating people senseless.
The Daily Caller reports:
Nancy Pelosi officially condemned violence from Antifa on Tuesday after months of attacks on Trump supporters and free speech protesters.
The statement from Pelosi was in response to the acts of violence over the weekend in Berkeley, which led to the arrests of 13 suspects connected to Antifa’s violence.
The fake news media did not demand Pelosi disavow ANTIFA, this was the result of YOUR actions, the people! https://t.co/S7whB0Pjut

“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.”

If you missed the party, a group of Antifa protestors were arrested for violence in Berkeley. They showed up fully clad in masks, with weapons, ready to do battle. Much like the white supremacists did in Charlottesville, but thankfully without the murder.
(Something about showing up with weapons seems to be the bad tipping point here.)
At the end of the day, 13 arrests were made.
You’d think ‘let’s condemn violence’ would be an obvious thing for any politician to do, just to get public praise. Sadly, for the Left, that option doesn’t always appear when it would harm any liberal group favorite.
And Antifa has been a group favorite for a while now.
This marks the first-time Pelosi has condemned Antifa and is quite possibly the first time she has acknowledged the group’s existence.
In short, Pelosi is a little late to the party. But better late than never. It’s too bad other libs won’t follow her example.
(There’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.)
