Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called federal DHS agents “stormtroopers” and “secret police” in a bizarre set of posts on Friday night. In the tweets, Pelosi makes wild allegations that unidentified stormtroopers in unmarked cars are kidnapping protesters. She goes on to say “Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped”.
Pelosi’s unhinged rhetoric tops other Democrats who have also made some pretty outrageous comments on today’s events in Portland.
Unidentified stormtroopers. Unmarked cars. Kidnapping protesters and causing severe injuries in response to graffiti.
These are not the actions of a democratic republic.@DHSgov’s actions in Portland undermine its mission.
Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.

Pelosi followed up her second tweet six minutes later by doubling down and using Nazi imagery.
Secret police? DHS agents so "secret" the Speaker of the House is talking about them right now? The "secret" police whose Acting Secretary @DHS_Wolf has made statements and done media appearances on the events in Portland?

Police are under attack and these unhinged and one might conclude that these hyperbolic comments from the Democrats are fueling the violence. Just look at what happened to the police guarding a statue of Christopher Columbus in Chicago.
Quick, someone send Trump and his stormtroopers to Chicago!
