The video shows Pelosi, in the wake of the baseball field assassination attempt on GOP lawmakers that nearly ended the life of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), vociferously denying that Democrat demagoguery against the political opposition had anything to do with the shooter’s motivations.

Hateful lies, repeated ad nauseam by the Democrats regarding health care were viewed by some as the motivation behind the shooter’s actions.

In fact, Senator Rand Paul recently revealed that the shooter, a volunteer for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, shouted ‘This is for healthcare!’ as he opened fire on Republican lawmakers.

What She Said Then

While the motivations of this week’s serial bombing attempt are unclear thus far, the shooters kill list and healthcare message made it clear – he was a democratic socialist who wanted to take out the political opposition.

Pelosi, at the time, wasn’t having any of it, angrily denying that her words and the words of her colleagues had anything to do with one man’s actions.

“How dare they!” she lashed out when asked if her party’s tone would be seen as a motivating force and hurt them in the future.

“This sick individual does something despicable, and it was horrible what he did, hateful,” she added. “But for them to all of a sudden be sanctimonious as if, they don’t, never seen such a thing before …”

Take a look …

 

Recall, if you will, that Pelosi was in the midst of hanging out with a California Democrat Party chair who yelled “f*** Donald Trump” to an adoring crowd because the President supposedly wanted to take away everybody’s health care.
