The created media narrative supposedly has David DePape being a right-wing extremist. DePape is accused of attacking Paul Pelosi and is facing two federal and six state charges. Those two federal charges are assault of an immediate family member of a United States official and attempted kidnapping of same for retaliation of the official carrying out their duties. Attempted murder is on the table.
The narrative is wrong
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski is one that painted DePape as a tool of right-wing extremism.
“Deranged right-wing fanatics, Trump-media allies and some of the most powerful people in the world were feverishly trying to stir up conspiracy theories that distracted from the central political headline of this story: that years of Republican propaganda and Trump-fueled fascism led 42-year-old David DePape to break into Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home, seemingly with the intent to harm her. Are we to insist that this attack was not the direct result of the dangerous, violent rhetoric we have heard from Donald Trump’s Republican party over the last six years? The deranged man who violently assaulted Paul Pelosi got his idea from somewhere. Are we supposed to ignore the fact that threats against the House Speaker have been specific for quite some time?”
Tucker Carlson destroyed that in a 47 second clip. DePape “is a mentally ill, drug addicted, illegal alien nudist who takes hallucinogens and lives in a hippie school bus in Berkeley with a BLM banner and pride flag out front… What does this sound like to you?”
The narrative is necessary
Due to the upcoming mid terms. The state crimes he’ll be charged with according to San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins are attempted murder, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, false imprisonment of an elder and threats to a public official and their family.
The question of “who is David DePape” might not be answered. Carlson said the media isn’t interested.
A created narrative
Reporter Michael Shellenberger dug up some details that Carlson referenced. “Apparently, DePape was camping full-time in a dilapidated Ken-Kesey-style school bus, complete with a gay pride flag out front and a sign that reads ‘Berkeley Stands Against Hate.’ Behind the bus hangs a BLM banner. So politically, this picture could not be clearer. You know where this guy stands.”
DePape appears to be “a hallucinogenic drug enthusiast and a semiprofessional nudist. He often appeared at nudist theme events.” San Fransisco police aren’t releasing any of his information.
The narrative doesn’t hold water
A long term girlfriend Oxane “Gypsy” Taub said at one time DePape he was Jesus for a year. She commented, “He has never been able to hold a job. He has been homeless. This person really does suffer from mental illness and that is probably why he was there at 2 a.m.”
Carlson summed the information up.
“So, to restate, the perpetrator in this violent crime against Paul Pelosi is a mentally ill, drug-addicted illegal alien nudist who takes hallucinogens and lives in a hippie school bus in Berkeley with a BLM banner and a pride flag out front. Take those uncontested facts and let them rattle around your brain for a moment until a recognizable pattern emerges. What does this sound like to you? If you guessed, this is obviously a textbook case of homegrown right-wing extremism, well, then, obviously, you’ve been watching a lot of cable news today. The bottom line is, ladies and gentlemen, the mentally ill, homeless, illegal alien, drug addict who lives in a painted school bus in Berkeley with the BLM flag is actually, despite all appearances, another member of Donald Trump’s QAnon army.”
It’s all about politics with the mid terms being so close. Carlson concluded with,
“Midterm elections are next Tuesday and Democrats are in trouble, and they believe the attack on Paul Pelosi might help them. It’s hilarious and brazen and shameless and the second the midterms are over, they’ll stop, but the point is, as always, all the journalists got the same memo and they’re all running with the same memo, of course using exactly the same words.”
