For U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the writing was on the wall for the outrageous extremes to which her detractors will go to send a disturbing message.
In this case, the writing on the wall was part of a vandalization of Pelosi’s San Francisco home in which her garage door was spray-painted and a pig’s head was placed in the driveway with spilled red paint around it. The photos, also showing an anarchy symbol, were shared on social media early Friday by conservative media creator Maggie VandenBerghe.
“$2K Cancel RENT! We want everything!” the message on Pelosi’s white garage door read in black spray paint, apparently making a reference to an attempt to increase COVID-19 stimulus relief checks from $600 to $2,000.
The garage door was later covered by garbage bags and the driveway cleaned up at the Pacific Heights neighborhood home. An area security guard told KGO-TV that vandals have struck at Pelosi’s home previously. In the last case, hair dryers and other items were left hanging in her trees.
“I don’t think that this is a useful way to go about it, and it’s a terrible start to this new year, when we are hoping for less anger and hatred than we’ve had to deal with for the last year,” 38-year Pacific Heights resident Audrey Carlson told KPIX-TV.
Pelosi was in Washington, D.C., at the time of the attack on her home, which has security cameras in view. Democrats and President Donald Trump were in rare agreement on increasing the stimulus payout to $2,000, but the U.S. Senate thwarted the effort and it appears that it is difficult for people to know where and how to direct their displeasure about it.
