  • Nancy Pelosi told pro-Palestine protesters outside her home to ‘go back to China where your headquarters are’ during a tense exchange in October 
  • The comment appears to be in reference to a New York Times report that tied campaign group Code Pink to a Chinese propaganda network
  • Social media users have branded Pelosi ‘racist’ for the remark

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has faced a backlash after telling pro-Palestine protesters to ‘go back to China’ following media reports about the group’s financial backing. 

A clip taken in October which was widely shared Tuesday by campaign group Code Pink shows Pelosi appearing visibly aggravated with protesters outside her San Francisco home. 

The women chant ‘Pelosi is allowing the murder of thousands of people’ and ‘ceasefire now’ as the Democrat attempts to get into her vehicle.

A frustrated Pelosi snaps ‘go back to China, where your headquarters are’ in an apparent reference to a New York Times report that tied Code Pink to a Chinese propaganda network.

Two of the activists are seen lying underneath the politician’s car, one of whom is also holding a dog on a leash.

'We did this because we have been trying to get Pelosi to sit at the peace table with us since 2007' one protester said

‘We did this because we have been trying to get Pelosi to sit at the peace table with us since 2007’ one protester said 

‘I guess she fell for that New York Times article or maybe she planted it’ one of the activists tells the camera shortly after. 

‘We did this because we have been trying to get Pelosi to sit at the peace table with us since 2007’ another said.

The group also chalked ‘ceasefire please now Pelosi’ onto the pavement outside her home. 

‘Pelosi stop supporting genocide’ could also be seen written on to the sidewalk. 

Social media users criticized Pelosi, including Trending Politics co-owner Collin Rugg, who posted on X that Pelosi has ‘lost it.’

‘If we couldn’t even say that the @#$?! COVID virus was from China, I expect every news agency in America to interrogate Pelosi for her racism,’ Mark Hemingway, posted on X. 

It comes after earlier this week Pelosi linked ceasefire protesters with Russia. 

‘They are 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’re doing.

‘They are 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’re doing’ 

Adding: ‘But for them to call for a cease-fire is 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 asleep at their San Francisco home just before 2:00am on October 28 when 42-year-old David DePape broke in and beat him with a hammer. 

Police bodycam video shows two officers arriving at the Pelosi’s home, knocking on the door and waiting around 20 seconds before it is answered.

Paul, in a pajama top and boxer shorts, answers the door as he and DePape both vie 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 going on man?’ DePape replies, ‘Everything’s good.’

DePape was found guilty of attempted kidnapping of a federal official and assault on the immediate family member of a federal official. He faces up to 50 years in prison

Prosecutors say DePape admitted to breaking into the Pelosis' San Francisco residence with the intention of getting the senior Democrat to acknowledge her party's 'lies' - on pain of smashing her kneecaps. She was not home at the time

Finding only her then-82-year-old husband at home, DePape engaged in what he told officers was a 'pretty amicable' exchange, during which Paul Pelosi, pictured, managed to call for help from law enforcement

The officer says, ‘Drop the hammer.’ The suspect tells them, ‘Ummm… nope.’ 

Then, Paul attempts to twist the hammer out of DePape’s hand, but the suspect regains control of the weapon and begins to strike multiple times.

The two police officers rush in and tackle DePape, shouting, ‘Give me your f*****g hands.’

They restrain the attacker as Paul lies collapsed and prone on the floor with liquid and ice on the ground around the two men.

The indictment in the case said that blood was ‘swelling’ out of the victim’s head and that Paul required surgery on a skull fracture in two places 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 home.

Paul is heard trying to alert the dispatcher to who he is and the danger he’s in as he says, ‘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 over two minute long 911 call comes to an end as Paul tells the dispatcher the suspect has told him to get off the phone.

Following the arrest, officers called in a Code 3 meaning that the situation was a medical emergency requiring immediate response. 

DePape was found guilty of attempted kidnapping in November last year and faces up to fifty years in jail.
