After doing her part to help shut down the Patriot Prayer group in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi has pulled an about-face and come out condemning Antifa.
Call me cynical, but I’m guessing the poll-testing results Democrats have compiled show that their tacit support of Antifa is hurting them.
Pelosi’s office released a statement that said, among other things:
“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.”
So, in other words, there is violence “on many sides.”
Where have I heard that before?
I’ve been around long enough to know that no Democrat would ever make such a startling shift in position unless poll-testing told them they should.
They put a lot of faith in the mainstream news media being able to polish the Antifa turd.
And it failed.
Despite every effort to create this myth that Antifa is noble and virtuous, Americans were watching in horror as they beat the crap out of people while police did nothing.
And suddenly Democrats realized Americans are more inclined to believe their lying eyes than the soft-focus twaddle of the Fake News media.
Folks are praising Nancy for going on record condemning Antifa.
But I won’t.
I know these people. I know how they operate.
And I have no doubt whatsoever that this condemnation only came when poll-testing showed supporting Antifa was a losing strategy.
The truth is, Antifa knows Nancy’s harsh words are nothing but CYA.
And Nancy knows it too.
Poll-testing must be bad. So Nancy has to cover her ass.
But this is nothing more than a wink and a nod – a thin veneer of condemnation covering a continuing tacit approval of their tactics.
