While the bulk of the mainstream media scrambles to tie Paul Pelosi’s attacker to the MAGA conservative right, the only thing we know for sure, so far, is that the guy is a nutcase.
According to Fox News, David DePape, 42, is the person who, somehow, ended up in the Pelosi’s San Francisco house at 2:30 a.m. and put Paul Pelosi in a surgical unit with a skull fracture not long after.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was away from her residence during the attack.
The internet exploded with alternative theories as to the attacker’s motives, though nothing has been confirmed as of this writing.
Who is he?
DePape’s history is anyone’s guess at this point. It’s known that he’s a nudist activist from Berkeley, who was apparently living in California as an illegal Canadian citizen.
Many in the mainstream media have uncovered what could be various writings authored by DePape, in which he expressed viewpoints on subjects like the 2020 election, Jan. 6, and Big Brother censorship.
It hasn’t been confirmed that those articles and writings were published by DePape. Little has been revealed by police regarding his personal life and possible political leanings.
He also has ties to Gypsy Taub, a locally known and highly influential nudist activist.
Biden blames GOP
It took less than 24 hours for President Joe Biden to blame Republicans for the attack, which he did during a fundraiser rally in Pennsylvania.
“It’s reported that the same chant was used by this guy they have in custody that was used on January 6 in the attack on the U.S. Capitol,” Biden said. “I’m not making this up.”
“What makes us think that one party could talk about stolen elections, Covid being a hoax, it was all a bunch of lies, and it not affect people who may not be so well balanced,” Biden yelled as he blamed Republicans for the Paul Pelosi attack. pic.twitter.com/Lm6LraokDI

Only time will tell what the attacker’s true motives were.
