House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was harassed by an anti-communist mob of protesters at a campaign visit in Florida this week.
Pelosi was approached and yelled at while stopping to meet with Democratic leaders and activists in South Florida on Wednesday. Video of the moment surfaced on YouTube with the caption: “Nancy Pelosi was heckled at a Miami Restaurant by Trump Supporting Cuban Americans.”
In the video, which was first reported by Big League Politics, Pelosi can be seen entering the restaurant and getting rushed by a mob of protesters. The protesters held anti-communist signs and yelled, “Look at Nancy Pelosi right here – f***ing communist. Get the f**k out of here. F**k you and your f**king Democrats.”
The bewildered Pelosi looked at the protesters before ducking into a doorway with security. The protesters chanted, “Communism sucks” at the closed door.
The behavior mirrors the mob actions of various leftist protests surrounding major events like the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, where GOP senators were harassed and screamed at with regularity inside the Senate. This week, Pelosi said that there would be “collateral damage” for those who disagree with the Democrats’ platform – were the Democrats to gain power in the House.

Earlier in the year, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters called for mob action against Trump officials, saying: “If you see anybody from that [Trump] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
