As more details emerge, the story about Paul Pelosi getting hit with a hammer becomes even more bizarre. What is the real story?
San Francisco Police Chief gave an initial press conference to share the first known facts about the situation. He stated that police showed up to conduct a "wellness check" and that both Paul and the suspect were holding the same hammer. The police chief also says that the suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi.
After the suspect took the hammer from Mr. Pelosi, the suspect violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi. Keep in mind that this happened after the police arrived on scene, not before. It should also be noted that both men were transported to a hospital for treatment. Was the suspect injured and by whom? It would be amazing to see the police body cam footage in order to see what really happened..
Immediately after the attack happens, large outlets label this as a Maga Republican attacking the husband of Nancy Pelosi. The president and CEP of the Center for American Progress, Patrick Gaspard, made the following statement, "The horrific attack on Paul Pelosi is another wake-up call to Americans that the far-right conspiracy theories and hate speech fueled by MAGA extremists are putting lives at risk. The widespread embrace of lies about the election by right-wing politicians and media is clearly inciting this violence. The consequences threaten the fabric of our democracy. We’ve already seen it during the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, and we are seeing it in the days leading up to the election as vigilantes try to intimidate voters. It’s time for every elected official—regardless of party—to condemn any form of political violence, especially as we head into the November elections. And Congress should convene a special committee to address the explosion of political violence in America that will inevitably have tragic outcomes if the lack of leadership accountability continues. We wish Paul Pelosi a speedy recovery and send out prayers to him, Speaker Pelosi, and their entire family." This was published on the CAP official website HERE
However, as the far left began to compare this incident to their coveted Jan. 6th attack, that they never seem to stop talking about, as well as blame Donald Trump - real journalists began to conduct their own investigations.
Ryan Saavedra wrote and article for Daily Wire claiming that the suspect, David DePape is actually a hemp jewelry making nudist Castro protester. To give context, The Castro is an internationally recognized LGBTQ+ community and not necessarily the type of place where you would find a conservative republican wearing a Maga hat.
Furthermore - there is an audio recording of the 911 call that reveals even more strange details of this attack. According to an article published on Yahoo News, Mr. Pelosi referred to David DePape as a "friend" when he was on the phone with the police. Here is an excerpt from the article, "The caller, later identified as Mr Pelosi, “stated that he does not know who the man is but said that his name is David and that he is a friend”, the operator said." This article also states that someone in the home, other than Paul or David, opened the door for the police.
It may never be known if Paul's attacker was actually a friend or if he was an unknown intruder intentionally trying to cause calamity. When it comes to stories like these, involving high-level government officials and their family members, the true facts may never be revealed. For obvious reasons. However, if the American people have learned anything over the last few years, its that national mainstream media outlets are quick to share stories that are not true.. or spin them in directions that may tell a story that has little in common with the reality of what took place. Even Dinesh D'Souza is sharing his thoughts on the fact that there is much more to this story than what is being told by the mainstream media.
