ALG praises Nancy Pelosi for joining with President Trump in condemning all political violence

Aug. 30, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for joining with President Donald Trump in condemning political violence in all of its forms when she said “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts” and called Antifa out by name:

“Nancy Pelosi appears to have come to her senses and agrees with President Trump’s position that all political violence should be condemned. Peaceful protest is a normal part of Americana and fully protected by the First Amendment. But violence whether from Antifa, Black Lives Matter or the KKK is deplorable. We’re glad Pelosi finally realizes this fundamental tenet of a stable republic. One of the foundational principles of America is that the people have an uncontested right to speak freely, to assemble peacefully and to protest and petition their government, and political violence in all its forms has no place and we’re glad that with Pelosi’s statement we have finally reached a bipartisan consensus. Now given this unanimity, the Department of Justice should engage in a wholesale investigation of the KKK, Antifa and Black Lives Matter to root out all of the violence and those that fund it.”
