It’s disgusting to see the Speaker of the US House of Representatives make disgusting statements about the officers of the Portland Police Department, aka PPD. She’s a vile and disgusting woman who should be thrown out of the People’s House. This week, Ms. Pelosi made an intentionally misleading statement in one of her tweets when she said “Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti. These are not the actions of a democratic republic. @DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission. Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”

The most powerful Democrat in the House then added more intentional deception, saying “First Amendment speech should never be met with one-sided violence from federal agents acting as Trump’s secret police, especially when unidentified. This is disgraceful behavior we would expect from a banana republic — not the government of the United States.”

The First Amendment doesn’t protect unpeaceful protests. This Portland Police Department tells a different story than the fiction that Ms. Pelosi told:

Here’s the text of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

People throwing projectiles at police isn’t the portrait of people peaceably assembling. Ms. Pelosi knows that but she doesn’t care about details like that. Thank God for Ted Cruz’s response to Ms. Pelosi’s intentionally weaponized, deceptive statements:

Dan Crenshaw and Andy Ngo added this information:

This is what PPD reported about the arrests:

17 people charged with “interfering with a police officer
1 person charged with “Assaulting a Public Safety Officer”
31 year old Timothy Swales: Interfering with a Peace Officer, Reckless Endangering, Elude (Vehicle), Elude (Foot), Reckless Driving, Hit and Run

Ms. Pelosi omitted more than a few important details. That’s typical of her. She has an occasional relationship with the truth. Robby Starbuck captures things perfectly with this tweet:
