As I See It

Pelosi attack no laughing matter



Did you hear the one about the old man, a pair of underwear and a hammer? Some people apparently think its funny that the elderly husband of Nancy Pelosi was viciously attacked and beaten inside his own home. It has become a meme. A member of the Trump family joked he would be going as Paul Pelosi for Halloween, posting a picture of men’s underwear and a hammer. Kari Lake perversely drew laughter when joking about the attack on the campaign trail in Arizona. Meanwhile, an elderly man remains hospitalized after having his skull bashed in over a difference in political ideology. The suspect is a man who apparently had been living in a garage, spouting wacky theories, denying the Holocaust, and threatening to break kneecaps while carrying zip-ties. He is charged with attacking and kidnapping the family of an American public official. How can we laugh that off? All while blanketing the airwaves with a tough on crime message? Not being outraged would further harm our democracy. It can’t be funny when someone attacks a fellow American citizen because they don’t agree with their politics.  This attack must be condemned by members of both parties, and the appropriate response would be tears, not laughter.

    He is an illegal from Canada. Shouldn’t even be here. Sanctuary city. Reap what you sow. If San Fran was tough on crime and deported him this would have never happened.

    How come no security alarms or personnel where at the home?

    How come Mr. Pelosi’s called him his friend on the 911 call?

    Scott, your not a journalist, your a propagandist. You preach for the Democrat party, which would be fine if you would say that but you arrogance won’t allow you to be truthful.

      I don’t think it arrogance. I believe Scott is under orders from his superiors to toe the Democratic line. In ignoring all your questions, in this opinion piece of his, he is doing just that and losing credibility.

    So..a left wing nutcase breaks into the house wearing only his underwear. Paul goes to the bathroom and phones the cops saying he needs a welfare check on a friend of his named David. A third person opens the door for the cops. They see Paul and David struggling over a hammer. David hits Paul, and the mainstream media wraps the whole thing up as Republican violence instigated by Donald Trump.

    The charges are elder abuse, attempted murder, kidnapping. Violence and mayhem is not acceptable no matter what your politics are. Denying the facts and name calling stoke the fringe and make law and order that much harder to obtain for all of us.

    What..no charge of breaking and entering. It appears both Paul and David were both in their underwear, and the hammer they were holding was a dildo hammer available for around $95. It appears also that David was with Paul when Paul drove under the influence earlier this year. Trust the initial police report and dispatcher audio.Do not trust the mainstream media on this.

    Where in Gods name did you get either of those things? I can’t trust something without a legit source which you seem to be saying you have. Time to elaborate… This sounds like a conspiracy theory.

      The initial police report, and audio of the dispatcher. It’s not a conspiracy theory..it’s a conspiracy now formulating to cover up the truth. That’s why they won’t release the body cams of the police or the security cameras footage outside the residence.
