Not very often we say good job to Nancy Pelosi. Even Nancy Pelosi has condemned Antifa. She released a statement on Tuesday. Specifically, she condemned the terrorist group’s vandalism, violence and threats that went down this past Sunday in Berkeley.
Here is the statement:
Pelosi Statement Condemning Antifa Violence in Berkeley
San Francisco — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement denouncing the violent protests carried out this weekend in Berkeley, California:
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.
On Sunday there were 13 arrests in Berkeley.
Monday Tucker Carlson took it a step further and called Antifa the militant wing of the Democrats.
After the violence in Charlottesville, many media outlets ignored Antifa and their violence. Much of the media portrayed Antifa as counter-demonstrators who are simply fighting racists, fascism and white nationalists.
