Pelosi’s previous comment’s resurfaced following the disturbing assault on the U.S. Capitol earlier this month at the hands of a right wing-mob who stormed the halls of Congress hoping to prevent the certification of the U.S. presidential election.
The assault drew forceful condemnations from both sides of the political aisle — including Pelosi — who wasted little time introducing former President Trump’s second impeachment in the House for “inciting” the violence.
Ten years earlier, unionists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on collective bargaining reform. Thousands of demonstrators managed to enter the building by violently breaking down doors and shattering windows — but the attack garnered much praise from Pelosi and other prominent Democrats at the time.
