Flashback: Pelosi Praised Capitol Storming as 'Impressive Show of Democracy'
Democrat sang a different tune when protesters stormed GOP-led WI state Capitol in 2011
After condemning the storming of the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's conflicting comments from 2011 have now come back to haunt her.
Following the 2011 invasion of the GOP-led Wisconsin State Capitol, Rep. Pelosi (D-CA) went on record praising the storming as an "impressive show of democracy in action."
Pelosi's previous comment's resurfaced following the disturbing assault on the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.
Protesters stormed the halls of Congress during the certification of the U.S. presidential election.
The assault drew forceful condemnations from both sides of the political aisle -- including Pelosi.
The Democrat leader wasted little time introducing President Donald Trump's second impeachment in the House for "inciting" the violence.
Ten years earlier, unionists stormed the Madison, WI State Capitol, according to Fox News.
The invasion was an attempt to block a vote on collective bargaining reform.
Thousands of demonstrators managed to enter the building by violently breaking down doors and shattering windows.
However, the attack garnered much praise from Pelosi and other prominent Democrats at the time.
The occupiers were praised publically by Pelosi for their "impressive show of democracy in action."
The House Speaker took to Twitter to express her "solidarity" with the activists as they attacked the Capitol, and sent senators into hiding until police managed to remove them from the building.
Fox News contributor Mark Thiessen highlighted Pelosi's previous remarks in a column for the Washington Post earlier this month.
Thiessen observed that "in other words, Democrats were for occupying capitols before they were against it."
