A Not-Wanted Poster of Malicious Liars

After a man, David DePape, attacked Paul Pelosi, husband of U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, in his home with a hammer last fall, a number of prominent people made false claims in trying to cast doubt about the incident.  Some claimed it was staged. Others claimed it involved a homosexual relationship.

DePape in a call to a television station admitted that he attacked Pelosi.  And, there are videos of DePape.  A surveillance video shows him breaking into the house. A police body camera video shows the attack itself when DePape fractured Pelosi's skull with a hammer.

That crime inspired those prominent people to create some malicious defamations about Pelosi in an attempt to falsely portray what happened.  When Alex Jones was hauled into court for contending that the Sandy Hook massacre was a staged fake, the judge ordered him to pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages and $45.2 million in punitive damages.  And Jones credibility was devastated.  Jones has declared bankruptcy.

It would benefit the country if Paul  Pelosi would sue those who made false claims about the attack on him.  Some hold political office, and their malicious dishonesty disqualifies them from holding office and they can be removed and prevented from holding office in the future.  Others are television anchors and commentators, and they should be forced to present what they regard as evidence or face the consequences.  They are in professions which do not tolerate perfidious conduct.  If our country is to re-establish any standards that transcend malice in the conduct of public business, these people must be removed from their positions of influence.  

The Seattle Times has compiled and published a list of those who have been caught in the lies and hav been exposed.  It follows:

Speaker McCarthy directly planted the seeds for the attack before it happened. Before he was speaker of the house, McCarthy was given a gavel as a gag gift. When he accepted it, he quipped he was going to take the real one away from Nancy Pelosi and would crack her a couple times with it. When some people complained about his violent rhetoric, McCarthy said, “Jeez. It was just a joke. Lighten up.” He has not apologized to his colleague. He likely doesn’t even comprehend how his sick joke led to such a vicious outcome.
