What We Know About Paul Pelosi’s Deranged Attacker

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was assaulted with a hammer early Friday inside his San Francisco home by an attacker identified by police as David DePape.  Mr. Pelosi had a hammer, and the man later grabbed it. According to Fox News, just before he attacked Paul Pelosi, 82, he shouted, “Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?”

DePape, 42, is now facing charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and several other additional felonies stemming from the incident after 2 a.m.

Scott said police responded to a well-being check and found DePape and Paul Pelosi, 82, struggling over a hammer. He said officers then witnessed DePape pull the hammer away from Pelosi and “violently assaulted” him.

DePape is homeless and might have tried to burglarize the residence.

Officers tackled DePape, disarmed him, and took him into custody while requesting emergency backup and rendering medical aid at the scene. The motive for the attack remains under investigation.

Why didn’t they shoot him?

Another oddity, DePape was in his underwear at the time.

DAVID DEPAPE APPEARS VERY DISTURBED

DePape’s name is tied to two conspiracy blogs. One, titled “Big Brother Censorship Hell,” features banner warning readers that “The elites/ruling class never censor themselves. You can still turn on any mainstream news channel to hear day and night the narrative put forth by the people who rule you.”

Although the posts written under the username “daviddepape” are mostly blank, they feature bizarre headlines, including “Pedophile normalization” and “Communist Voodoo science.”

The first post on the site was created in June 2007, though it was most recently updated in August 2022.

The second blog, frenlyfrens.com, hosts more detailed posts under categories like “Climate hysteria” and “Corruption.” Several of the posts espouse anti-Semitic conspiracies, including one that reads, “Isn’t their [sic] a trope about Jews ABUSING the courts to rip people off.”

While it is unclear if DePape — who has been described as living in storage units — himself authored these blogs, relatives, and acquaintances confirmed to CNN that he frequently shared conspiracies on Facebook and seemed “out of touch with reality.”

DePape’s Facebook page, which has since been removed, featured dozens of posts riddled with false information about the COVID pandemic, the 2020 election, and the Jan. 6, 2021, riot on the Capitol.

DePape is being booked on attempted homicide, elderly abuse, burglary, and other charges, Scott said.

An older picture of DePape, a Canadian-born resident of Berkeley, emerged alongside a prominent Berkeley nudist activist with whom he has children.

In addition to several transphobic posts, DePape disseminated website links falsely claiming that COVID vaccines were deadly.

HIS VIEWS ON TRUMP ARE ALSO NUTS

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.

OPINION

I’ll go out on a limb here and say he sounds paranoid and perhaps psychotic, as in paranoid schizophrenic. Democrats will paint him as a Republican while they themselves don’t bother to enforce the laws. They will try to use it to silence speech or win elections. Their energies would be better spent figuring out how to get these very sick people the help they need.

BRAIN SURGERY

Nancy Pelosi’s husband, 82-year-old Paul Pelosi, underwent successful surgery to repair a fractured skull on Friday, according to a statement from the House Speaker’s office. This comes following an early morning violent attack with a hammer-wielding suspect who police believe targeted their San Francisco home.

The full statement reads:

“Earlier this morning, Paul Pelosi was attacked at home by an assailant who acted with force and threatened his life while demanding to see the Speaker. Mr. Pelosi was admitted to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where he underwent successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands. His doctors expect a full recovery. The Speaker and her family are thankful for the outpouring of support and prayers from friends, constituents, and people around the country. The Pelosi family is immensely grateful to Mr. Pelosi’s entire medical team and the law enforcement officers who responded to the assault. The family appreciates respect for their privacy during this time.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was not home nor in the city at the time of the attack.

Trump attorney Harmeet Dhillon on Friday posted a conspiratorial tweet where she insinuated that there was something suspicious about the alleged assault of Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“My firm served a lawsuit against Paul Pelosi one time in [San Francisco] after attempting to serve at other residences — Napa, Georgetown,” she wrote on Twitter. “They weren’t home, but staff were, and multiple law enforcement officers were on the perimeter. Break-in is odd given this level of security.”

When police arrived, Pelosi had the weapon.

The MSM story given about this incident is false. The Pelosi home is heavily guarded, even when unoccupied. The speaker is the 3rd highest person in government. This man was admitted to the residence. The only way to get information on what happened is to study the initial reports before the filtering began. The media narrative will always lead you down the wrong path. The best guess is these two knew each other and had a quarrel. The attacker may be a male prostitute:

Dhillon, who was hired by Trump earlier this month to help him litigate the House Select Committee’s subpoena, found it “odd” that Paul Pelosi would be vulnerable to being assaulted given the amount of security that normally surrounds the Pelosis.

Democrats and Democrat policies create people like this. Of Course the Fake Media will tell us that he is the typical Republican, but most of the country knows better.

When you create this many deranged people, sooner or later they will come after you along with everyone else. Money & Power can only go so far in protecting the Rich & Powerful.

This is why Democrats need to be stopped. Their policies and Ideology make everyone unsafe.
