Sketchy as sketchy gets, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott confirmed that the intruder was specifically targeting the House speaker. “Everyone should be disgusted,” he said.
Sorry, not disgusted, not even a tiny bit. What I actually am is highly, highly amused.
SAN FRANCISCO — Police said Friday evening the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was “intentional.”
No, really? SRSLY? That there’s some top-quality sleuthing there, Depitty Dawg.
The man accused of entering the Pelosi home and attacking Paul Pelosi with a hammer specifically targeted the California Democrat, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott confirmed on Friday. That was consistent with the revelation that the assailant, a 42-year-old Berkeley resident, had asked “Where is Nancy?” before his assault.
“This was intentional,” Scott told reporters, adding politicians’ families “don’t sign up for this.”
Oh yes, they do. That is, if the words of one Thomas Jefferson still count for anything.
“It is wrong, and everyone should be disgusted,” he added.
Nope, sorry not sorry; still amused over here, not disgusted. Here’s where things get sketchy.
David DePape forced his way into the home through a back entrance, Scott said. Officers arrived at the house, knocked on the front door and were let inside by an unknown person. They discovered DePape and Pelosi struggling for a hammer, and after they instructed them to drop the weapon, Scott said, DePape took the hammer and “violently attacked” Pelosi.
To recap, then: the cops were let into the palatial PeeLousy crib by who even knows, then stood idly by as two half-nekkid dudes were rasslin’ around. Then, when a verbal request to knock that shit off was ignored by the combatants, they looked on as the vicious skull-cracking went down right in front of their faces. Uhhhh HUH. I can see no problem with any of that perfectly believable narrative, not a-tall I don’t.
The emerging portrait of a politically motivated attack by a man who consumed fringe conspiracy theories has shocked San Francisco and stoked fresh concerns about elected officials facing violence.
Not on MY part they haven’t.
While authorities have not detailed a motive, DePape’s online history indicates that he subscribed to the discredited narrative that the 2020 presidential election was illegitimate and espoused a range of bigoted and radical beliefs. He expressed anti-Semitic views and appeared to embrace the QAnon movement, which posits a secret cabal of pedophiles has been protected by people in power.
SO, just another addition to the ever-lengthening litany of politically-motivated Left-wing violence, then. Making it exactly one (1) more of such than we’ve seen to date from us deadly-dangerous Right-wing Nazi radical white supremacist extremists, oddly enough. Gin-soaked hag Nancy’s office issued an unintentionally side-splitting statement regarding the bizarre incident:
Rep. Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) office released a statement saying Pelosi, 82, was hospitalized but is expected to make a full recovery. The speaker and her family “requested privacy at this time,” according to the statement.
Yeah, I just bet you did at that, Skeletor. Nothing quite like the healing power of “privacy” to help one get through such a trying ordeal, I’m sure. Rand Paul reeled off a scalpel-sharp riposte in response.
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wished Mr. Pelosi a speedy recovery “unlike Nancy Pelosi’s daughter” who mocked the 2017 violent attack on the senator at his home that left him seriously injured. Part of Paul’s lung had to be surgically removed after a neighbor attacked him over his political views.
Heh. Also, OOF. If PeeLousy homme or femme had any capacity to feel shame, they’d be up to their necks in it after that semi-subtle slam.
