What a difference a decade makes.
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pursues a politically driven impeachment of former President Donald Trump for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 incursion in the Capitol, a look back to the not-too-distant past shows Democrats haven’t always taken such a hard line against violent protesters in the halls of government.
And Pelosi herself is on record casting herself in “solidarity” with exactly the kind of behavior she now accuses Trump of inciting.
Even by Pelosi standards, the hypocrisy is breathtaking.
As Fox News reported on Monday, Twitter posts unearthed from 10 years ago show the Democratic House leader positively enthusiastic about a mob of trade unionists, teachers and assorted rabble who crowded the halls of Wisconsin’s state Capitol in Madison in 2011 to protest moves by then-Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to bring conservative values to the Badger State’s government.
