Nancy Pelosi is branded RACIST over clip of her telling pro-Palestinian protesters to ‘Go back to China’ after they heckled her as she left her home
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced backlash after she told pro-Palestine protesters to “go back to China” following media reports about the group’s financial support.
A photo taken in October and widely shared by campaign group Code Pink on Tuesday shows Pelosi looking visibly aggravated with protesters outside her San Francisco home.
The women chant ‘Pelosi allows the killing of thousands of people’ and ‘now cease fire’ as the Democrat tries to get into her vehicle.
A frustrated Pelosi snaps ‘go back to China, where your headquarters is’ in an apparent reference to A New York Times report which linked Code Pink to a Chinese propaganda network.
Two of the activists are seen lying under the politician’s car, one of whom is also holding a dog on a leash.

“We did this because we’ve been trying to get Pelosi to come to the peace table with us since 2007,” said one protester
“I think she fell for that New York Times article or maybe she planted it,” one of the activists told the camera shortly after.
“We did this because we’ve been trying to get Pelosi to come to the peace table with us since 2007,” said another.
The group also chanted ‘ceasefire please Pelosi’ on the sidewalk outside her home.
‘Pelosi stops supporting genocide’ could also be written on the pavement.
Social media users criticized Pelosi, including Trending Politics co-owner Collin Rugg, who posted on X that Pelosi had ‘lost it.’
‘If we couldn’t even say that the @#$?! COVID virus was from China, I expect every news agency in America to question Pelosi for her racism,’ Mark Hemingway posted on X.
It comes after Pelosi linked truce protesters to Russia earlier this week.
“They’re in front of my house all the time,” Pelosi told CNN. ‘I have a feeling for what feelings they have. But we have to think about what we are doing.

Adds: ‘But for them to ask for a truce, Mr. Putin’s message, Mr. Putin’s message.’
“Some, I think, are connected to Russia,” she told the outlet.
Security has been a concern at the Pelosi residence after the former speaker’s husband was attacked by an intruder in October 2022.
Paul Pelosi was sleeping at their San Francisco home just before 2 a.m. on October 28 when 42-year-old David DePape broke in and beat him with a hammer.
Police dashcam video shows two officers arriving at the Pelosi’s home, knocking on the door and waiting about 20 seconds before answering it.
Paul, in a pajama top and boxer shorts, answers the door as he and DePape both fight for control of a hammer.
They each have a hand on the weapon while Paul has a drink in his left hand.
An officer asks: ‘What’s the matter man?’ DePape replied, ‘Everything is fine.’
San Francisco police body camera footage shows David DePape with Paul Pelosi at the Pelosis’ home in San Francisco, in the early morning hours of Oct. 28, 2022. DePape was convicted of attempted kidnapping of a federal official and assault on the immediate relative of a federal official. He faces up to 50 years in prison
Prosecutors say DePape admitted to breaking into the Pelosis’ San Francisco home with the goal of getting the senior Democrat to admit her party’s “lies” — on pain of smashing her kneecaps. She was not at home at the time
DePape only found her then-82-year-old husband at home and engaged in what he told officers was a “pretty friendly” exchange, during which Paul Pelosi, pictured, managed to call for help from law enforcement .
The officer says, ‘Let go of the hammer.’ The suspect tells them: ‘Ummm… no.’
Then Paul tries to wrestle the hammer from DePape’s hand, but the suspect regains control of the weapon and begins to strike several times.
The two police officers rush in and tackle DePape, shouting: ‘Give me your f*****g hands.’
They restrain the attacker as Paul collapses and lies on the floor with liquid and ice on the ground around the two men.
The indictment in the case said that blood was “swelling” from the victim’s head and that Paul required surgery in two places for a skull fracture and was treated for serious injuries to his right arm and hands.
The 911 call reveals Paul telling an emergency dispatcher that someone came into his house.
Paul is heard trying to warn the dispatcher about who he is and the danger he’s in, saying: ‘There’s a gentleman here just waiting for my wife to come back, Nancy Pelosi.’
When the dispatcher asks who the man is, DePape says, ‘I’m a friend of theirs.’ The more than two-minute long 911 call came to an end when Paul told the dispatcher the suspect told him to get off the phone.
After the arrest, officers called in a Code 3 meaning the situation was a medical emergency that required immediate response.
DePape was found guilty of attempted kidnapping in November last year and could face up to fifty years in prison.
