House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi was attacked on Friday in his San Francisco home. It was a frightening incident, and thank God Pelosi, 82, was unharmed.
Despite this, the media is steadfastly committed to assigning blame in the situation. David DePape, a 42-year-old campaigner for nudism, conspiracy theorist, and undocumented immigrant with a murky past who purportedly struggled with narcotics and mental health concerns, is the defendant. He resided in a region of the country where there are significant problems with drugs, homelessness, illegal immigration, crime, and mental health.
Who is in charge of that profile? Naturally, Fox News and personality Jesse Watters are involved, according to California Governor Gavin Newsom.
“I’ve seen the dehumanization of Nancy Pelosi,” Newsom said to CBS News on Saturday.
“I don’t think anyone’s been dehumanized like she has consistently. Now I watched this one guy, Jesse Watters or something on Fox News. What he’s been saying about Paul Pelosi the last five, six months, mocking him consistently. Don’t tell me that’s not aiding and abetting all this. Of course it is.”
“They’re sowing the seeds, creating a culture and a climate like this,” said Newsom.
“I mean, look online. Look at the sewage that is online that they amplify on these networks and in social media to dehumanize people like Nancy Pelosi and other political leaders.”
As the wonderful people at Wikipedia may put it: .
Although, if the attacker’s comments to police are to be believed, he wasn’t there for Paul Pelosi and Fox News’ coverage had nothing to do with it, Watters has made fun of the speaker for his DUI arrest and for supposedly trying to use his riches and connections to wiggle out of it.
Watters remarked on his Monday show that it was okay if Newsom choose to assign blame. Then, he asked the governor, “Who is more at fault here? The governor who didn’t deport the deranged drug-addict felon who thinks is he Jesus or the news guy who fairly covered Paul’s DUI case?”
Watters responded, “I think we both know the answer.”
Watters claimed that the reason he has problems with Paul Pelosi is because of his arrest after he “got drunk and nearly killed someone with his car.”
The Napa County DA, he said, “made it go away,” though. Pelosi was only given a five-day jail term and a fine despite having caused an accident. Watters had previously “reported that Paul Pelosi got special treatment and tried to bribe [police] with a donor card.”
More on this story via The Western Journal:
“There are still questions we have — but Gavin Newsom thinks, if you mock a Democrat, that puts them on the target list.”
And, as Watters noted, there’s no evidence linking him to the alleged attacker.
“The deranged drug addict that talks to fairies and lived on a school bus didn’t watch ‘Primetime’ and head on over to Nancy’s house with a hammer,” Watters said.
“If anything, Gavin Newsom has done more to aid and abet this attack on Paul Pelosi than anybody. David DePape is a homeless criminal and illegal alien. DePape overstayed his visa for years. Committed crimes. California is a sanctuary state.” CONTINUE READING…
