Over the weekend, Antifa thugs went to a park in Berkeley after a No To Marxism rally was canceled. Some people did show up and received beatings from the Antifa jerks as the police backed down.

Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin criticized the violence, but was okay with the police standing down. He has even asked UC-Berkeley to cancel the conservative Free Speech Week.

However, those of us who value free speech have found a friend in none other than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

San Francisco — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement denouncing the violent protests carried out this weekend in Berkeley, California:

“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.

“In California, as across all of our great nation, we have deep reverence for the Constitutional right to peaceful dissent and free speech. Non-violence is fundamental to that right. Let us use this sad event to reaffirm that we must never fight hate with hate, and to remember the values of peace, openness and justice that represent the best of America.”

Credit where it’s due. Thank you, Rep. Pelosi.
