When I saw the news that Paul Pelosi was attacked with a hammer at his home but no details were released, I assumed, as in typical fashion about mass shooters, that the attack was carried out by someone who was inconvenient to the Leftist narrative.
At the time I thought, probably an illegal immigrant or minority criminals who didn’t know that was the Pelosi house and was engaged in one of the many robberies that has caused half of San Francisco residents to be a victim of property crime in the last few years.
It made sense. The Left is downplaying crime as an issue and if the Speaker of the House was a victim of an armed robbery, that would hurt their narrative. Best to make that go away.
Had it been some white guy in a MAGA hat, I’m sure the FBI would have started door-to-door raids of known Trump supporters already.
Then the details started to come out.
I was wrong, it wasn’t some dumb crook who didn’t know whose house he robbed.
But it wasn’t a Right wing attack either.
It’s weird as hell is what it is.
Paul Pelosi told attacker he needed to use the bathroom, called 911 from there
Law enforcement officials are still investigating how the alleged assailant, identified by police as 42-year-old David DePape, was able to access the speaker’s home and have not yet assessed a motive.
Paul Pelosi was able to dial 911 himself after telling the intruder he had to go use the bathroom and then calling from there, where his phone had been charging, according to a person familiar with the situation. He was hospitalized after the attack at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where he successfully underwent surgery to repair a skull fracture and “serious injuries to right arm and hands,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill said in a statement Friday evening.
In a brief press conference Friday, San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said that police officers were dispatched to the Pelosi residence at about 2:30 a.m. for a “priority well-being check,” and arrived on the scene to find Paul Pelosi and DePape holding a hammer.
“The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it,” Scott said. “Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup and rendered medical aid.”
DePape was running around the saying “where’s Nancy?”
Paul Pelosi’s attacker shouted ‘Where is Nancy?’ looking for the House speaker during home break-in and assault, reports say
A source briefed on the attack told CNN that the intruder shouted “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?” at the speaker’s husband, Paul Pelosi, after breaking into the home just before 2:30 a.m. CNN reported that the attacker also tried to tie Pelosi up, saying he was waiting for the speaker.
Then things get weird.
This is from the Sacramento Bee:
Conspiracy theories, racist posts: What we know about the Nancy Pelosi home invasion suspect
A blog written under the name of DePape — with the domain ‘godisloving.wordpress.com’ and banner that reads “Welcome to Big Brothers Censorship Hell” — includes articles titled ‘pedophile normalization,’ ‘facts are racist,’ and ‘Hitler did nothing wrong.’
His posts contain right-wing conspiracy theories, QAnon beliefs and racists messages. He repeatedly railed against government officials, the media and tech companies for alleged censorship. The blog, created in 2007, was largely inactive until this summer, when he made dozens of posts in the span of just four days in August.
Another website with entries also written by a person who identifies as David DePape similarly contains antisemitic and bigoted blog posts, including denial of the Holocaust.
CNN reported that DePape’s Facebook account, which has been taken down by the social media company, contained memes and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines, the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 attack.
According to a 2008 Oakland Tribune article, DePape has three children with Oxane “Gypsy” Taub, a prominent Bay Area nude activist who pushed conspiracy theories, including that 9/11 was an “inside job” and attempted to stage a naked wedding on the steps of San Francisco City Hall. A 2013 article in The San Francisco Chronicle identified David DePape as a “hemp jewelry maker” who was living in a Berkeley Victorian flat with Taub, their three children and Taub’s partner at that time, Jaymz Smith.

David Depape, Paul Pelosi Suspect: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
An older picture of Depape, a Canadian-born resident of Berkeley, showed him alongside a prominent Berkeley nudist activist with whom he helped raise children.
Some of his posts referred to former President Donald Trump. “Either Q is Trump himself or Q is the deepstate moles within Trumps inner circle. So Q/Trump sabotaged their child trafficking operations. #2 self inflicted wound. Trumps covert id or a Deep state mole? Was Q refering to this? Did Q do this? another video,” he wrote, referring to QAnon. Some videos on his website show Pelosi.
So is he far Right, far Left, just plain fucking nuts?
He wasn’t a Trump fan.
And, of course, how did this guy get in past security?
We clearly don’t know enough but what we do know is that this is some bat shit craziness that isn’t “a Right Wing Trump supporter tried to assassinate Speaker Pelosi.”

“So is he far Right, far Left, just plain fucking nuts?”
There are plenty of people out there who long to burn with religious fervor, and who bound from belief to belief in search of the elusive righteousness. I vote for Option (C), specific flavor “would-be religious zealot with no consistent beliefs”. (Which, to be fair, makes up a lot of the far Left and some of the fringier parts of the far Right.)
“And, of course, how did this guy get in past security?”
This. This is the part that makes the whole thing surreal. Well, this and just about everything else we’ve been told about the incident.
I’m guessing he wasn’t wearing a red hat.
“We clearly don’t know enough but what we do know is that this is some bat shit craziness that isn’t ‘a Right Wing Trump supporter tried to assassinate Speaker Pelosi.'”
And yet, the left wing media is already portraying him as a “MAGA Hat wearing extremist.” And China Joe wants “something done” to end violence (unspoken but reading between the lines , more gun control, even if the nut job used a hammer). Also the Media is jumping on Republicans for not condemning this freak fast enough. I guess they figure to tie this into Jan. 6th, and hope for a miracle on Election Day.
Just saw a thread that implied the “attacker” was actually Paul Pelosi’s boy toy, and it went wrong. Too many “curious” things about it. Looking for a link to the thread.
That’s certainly one rumor that’s going around, and it’s at least consistent with “deranged guy in underwear was somehow inside VIP’s heavily-protected residence.”
So, Mr Pelosi, spouse of the speaker of the house, and she is number 3 in line of succession should anything befall Mr Briben or Mrs “Cackles” Harris, has Sumdood inside his residence, at nearly oh-dark-thirty, said Dood attacking him with a hammer IN FRONT OF THE RESPONDING OFFICERS? So, did Mr. Dood simply traipse on in, say, “Howdy, Paul. Where’s Nancy?”, and begin to dance, or something?
Or, did Mr. Pelosi allow Mr. Dood inside (for reason(s) known only to him, The Almighty, and, maybe, Nancy), and Mr. Dood abruptly went off?
Naw, nothing to see here! Sounds legit!
I second another commenter’s observation: where was/what was the security doing?
Security was told he was a friend and let him in. The dood had probably been a frequent visitor.
For what it is worth two of the website/blogs associated to the dude were created the day of the report and have since been nuked. Sounds like a quickly and poorly thrown ninja smoke to try and spin it in their favor
After reading this latest article on Paul Pelosi, I will go out on a limb and say….this was a planned ‘Thing’. Someone planned every aspect of this fiasco. It has all the telltale signs of a staged scene, where everyone involved is playing a scripted part. Now, what reason could there be? What is the motive for this? — https://www.theblaze.com/news/paul-pelosi-home-david-depape-police?utm_source=theblaze-7DayTrendingTest&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Afternoon%20Auto%20Trending%207%20Day%20Engaged%202022-11-04&utm_term=ACTIVE%20LIST%20-%207%20Day%20Engagement
