Sometimes A Deranged, Hammer-Wielding Illegal Alien Is Just A Deranged, Hammer-Wielding Illegal Alien

On Friday, the San Francisco Police Department finally released bodycam footage from the night that Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was allegedly attacked by David DePape — a reported illegal alien with mental problems. Shortly after, Fox News released additional security footage appearing to show DePape smashing a window to gain entry into Pelosi’s home.

Rather than showing a gay tryst as many have speculated was really occurring, the two bits of evidence appear to show that sometimes a deranged, hammer-wielding illegal alien is just a deranged, hammer-wielding illegal alien.

DePape has been in the United States since 2008, according to government records, and overstayed a temporary visitor visa. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has already placed a detainer on the nudist activist. According to prosecutors, he attacked Pelosi on October 28 while attempting to kidnap his wife, who was not home at the time.

From the get-go, nothing about the story added up. Conspiracies flew and questions were raised.

Why didn’t the police respond to the incident sooner? Why didn’t Paul Pelosi run away when the door was opened after authorities got there? How come the victim spoke with DePape for so long? No security footage? Really?

It was all so weird, and rather than answers, the public was met with silence. It seemed that the San Francisco machine was rushing to cover up something obscene and embarrassing for the most powerful Democratic member of Congress.

Thanks to a court order, we can see that it might not necessarily be the case that anything beyond the official story was occurring.

The video below appears to show both DePape and Pelosi holding onto a hammer. DePape appears to grab Pelosi’s wrist, thus making it difficult for the 82-year-old Pelosi to get away. Per the video, the suspect then wrangles the hammer out of Pelosi’s right hand and proceeds to bludgeon him as police then rush into the house.

Now, if that were the only video related to this story it would be very bizarre. The questions would remain:

Why didn’t the police rush in when they saw DePape? Is Pelosi drinking a beer? Why does it seem so nonchalant? How did DePape get in the house?

At least one of those questions can be answered thanks to Fox News.

Fox released an additional video allegedly showing that DePape seems to have broken in exactly as has been described. Based on the 9-1-1 audio, it seems as if Pelosi is trying to keep things calm while on the phone with police, so as to not anger the man standing right next to him watching his every move.

Both the home security footage and police camera can be seen here:

Now, if this were to happen in the middle of nowhere or in a city with law and order, then perhaps more speculation would be warranted.

Yet this occurred in San Francisco — a town that has been ruined by Democratic policies which invite insane people to live there. It’s a dump filled with weirdos. Is it really so wild to believe that a psycho who hangs on the fringes of society broke into the then-speaker’s home?

As a reminder, here’s what San Francisco looks like:

Couldn’t it be that Pelosi, an octogenarian, didn’t act as swiftly as one would expect because he’s a frail old man?

Put yourself in that position. If a guy just broke into your house, seems like he wants to potentially kill your wife, and is holding a blunt object, zip ties, and more — and you didn’t have anything to defend yourself — wouldn’t you go along with his demands just to stay alive? Or would you do something that could get yourself killed? Is it really insane to believe that you wouldn’t try to sneak a phone call to the police, and then act dumb when the person holding you hostage catches you in the act?

The real question in all of this is why did NBC News suspend reporter Miguel Almaguer for an entirely accurate reporting of the story? Almageur published a video, which would have gone through editors and producers, detailing what happened. He was then subsequently suspended, the video was scrubbed, and all the public was told was that it didn’t meet editorial standards.

It seems likely that Almaguer’s reporting didn’t meet editorial standards because Nancy, presumably, didn’t want any coverage of the incident for whatever reason.

But as for the DePape situation, as Sigmund Freud reportedly said, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. There may not be anything else to it.
