Ocasio-Cortez Goes After Kevin McCarthy for His Silence on Pelosi Attack
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Democrats are continuing to weaponize last week’s attack on the House speaker’s husband. This time, it’s the leader of the notorious “Squad” who’s slinging dirt, and her target is the House minority leader. Like other Dems, she’s ignoring the fact many Republicans have condemned the brutal assault.
Last year, a GOP Congressman shared a depiction of himself killing me. When the House rose to censure, @GOPLeader defended him.
Yesterday, a man sharing that member’s rhetoric tried to assassinate the Speaker and her spouse.
What has @GOPLeader said? Nothing. This is who he is.

On October 28, Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was seriously injured in an attack apparently aimed at his wife. The alleged attacker, an illegal alien who’s been in San Francisco for around 20 years, had zip ties with him and asked Pelosi, “Where’s Nancy?” Cops suspect he planned to kidnap the speaker.
The day after the attack, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) vented on Twitter, accusing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) of defending threats against herself and saying nothing about the assault on Mr. Pelosi. In fact, McCarthy strongly condemned the threats against AOC, and while he hadn’t publicly mentioned the attack when AOC sent her tweet, it later turned out he’d spoken privately with Speaker Pelosi within hours of the news breaking.
Meanwhile, many other Republicans have openly condemned the assault. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he was “horrified and disgusted,” while former VP Mike Pence called it an “outrage.” Yet, Democrats are being very quiet about the fact that if their own party hadn’t been so soft on illegal aliens, Paul Pelosi’s assailant would have been sent back to Canada 20 years ago.
