David DePape found guilty in federal trial over Paul Pelosi hammer attack


[i]"A federal jury has convicted the suspect accused of the violent hammer attack against Paul Pelosi at his and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco home last year. The jury began deliberating Wednesday afternoon before reaching a verdict late Thursday morning, finding David DePape guilty on both federal counts."[/i]

This deluded person David DePape is now headed for about 30 in prison for attempted kidnapping and murder. His life is over. He foolishly believed deranged conspiracy theories which motivated him to attempt to kidnap and/or murder Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Her husband happened to be at home.

DePape has to accept responsibility for his actions. Yet I can't help feeling the purveyors of this conspiracy lunacy are also partly to blame. By posting these false conspiracy theories on their websites they are goading suggestable, mentally unstable people to acts of violence.

Be careful what you believe. Think rationally. Check the facts. Consider the consequences.

Yep. Online Radicalization. It's so common. And so easy to execute.

Daily Beast - [i]DePape’s trial wrapped up shortly after he gave dizzying, tearful testimony about his motive for the assault, which he admitted carrying out. He explained that he went down a rabbit hole of conspiracy theories after listening to right-wing podcasts on YouTube, and said that he truly believed Nancy Pelosi and others—like the actor Tom Hanks and California Gov. Gavin Newsom—were corrupt and caught up in pedophilia, and he wanted to save the country from it.[/i]

He's got more charges pending. He might never get out. Won't slow the dregs of society down though. They'll keep selling lies and believing them.

@Ynotisay see below. Those clowns are doubling down

I guess they think enough time has elapsed for people to forget that the fake hammer fight story has more holes than a brick of swiss cheese.

Note that happy couple here embroiled in mortal combat 😂😂😂
@badminton oh gee...no one has ever faked stuff on the internet. The guy is anti-Trump. There were photos of him and a female friend dressed up like Donald and Melania at an anti-Trump rally to mock them both. You are either incredibly gullible, or are knowingly pushing lies. DePape was there having sex with Paul Pelosi, got caught, and then made up a ridiculous story.

@BizSuitStacy That is unsopported speculation without a shred of documented evidence. Please do post that photo lol.
@badminton No matter how hard y'all try to scrub the internet, the evidence is always there. Read 'em and weep, dumbass.

Oh, and I made a miatake.
Gypsy Taub is dressed as Stormy Daniels, not Melania.

I wonder what it cost the Pelosi’s to get this clown to deny he was hired by Paul Pelosi for sex.

That false rumor has been debunked multiple times. Reuters News Service has gone on record reporting: "There’s no evidence to back claims that DePape told investigators that he and Paul Pelosi had engaged in sexual relations or argued over drugs...Further, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced the state charges against DePape on Oct. 31 and said “DePape specifically targeted the Pelosi home to confront Speaker Pelosi”.
@badminton Oh boy...snopes. they would never lie 🤥🤡🙄
I mean, yeah. Sure, he's guilty of the attack, but he's really a victim of all this propaganda. We're going to see more mentally disturbed people falling for the hype and attacking the innocent.
