House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi officially denounced radical left-wing Antifa protesters late Tuesday evening; following weeks of violence by the liberal hate group that went largely ignored by democrats and the mainstream media.
The former Speaker released a statement regarding the recent demonstrations in Berkeley, California, where Antifa protesters viciously attacked peaceful Trump supporters during a Free Speech rally.
“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,” said Pelosi.
“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,” she added.
The California representative harshly criticized President Trump for his response to the chaos that rocked Charlottesville this month, blasting the President for condemning violence on “both sides” and calling for him to be censured by Congress.
“Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem?” asked the President during a press conference. “I think they do.”
