La presidente della Camera Nancy Pelosi has gone on record praising the storming of the Capitol as an “impressive show of democracy in action” — il 2011 invasion of the Madison, Wis., state capitol, questo è.
Pelosi’s previous comment’s resurfaced following the disturbing assault on the U.S. Campidoglio earlier this month at the hands of a right wing-mob who stormed the halls of Congress hoping to prevent the certification of the U.S. Elezioni presidenziali.
The assault drew forceful condemnations from both sides of the political aisle — including Pelosi — who wasted little time introducing former President Trump’s secondo impeachment in the House for “inciting” the violence.
Ten years earlier, unionists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on collective bargaining reform. Thousands of demonstrators managed to enter the building by violently breaking down doors and shattering windows — but the attack garnered much praise from Pelosi and other prominent Democrats at the time.
The occupiers were praised publically by Pelosi for their “impressive show of democracy in action.” The House Speaker took to Twitter to express her “solidarity” with the activists as they attacked the Capitol, and sent senators into hiding until police managed to remove them from the building.
Fox News contributor Mark Thiessen highlighted Pelosi’s previous remarks in a colonna for the Washington Post earlier this month, oberving that “in altre parole, Democrats were for occupying capitols before they were against it.”
