Since the horrific October 7th attacks in Israel, progressive activists have protested the Jewish nation. They have accused Israel of committing “genocide,” all but ignoring the evil actions against the country by Hamas.
Democrats have been split over the conflict. Moderates support Israel’s response, as well as the administration’s continued support for the nation.
But progressives nationwide have spread anti-Israel propaganda. They have even targeted Democrat leaders, including Nancy Pelosi. And after anti-Israel protestors demonstrated outside her home, she came up with a bizarre accusation against them.
From The Post Millennial:
“Make no mistake, this is directly connected to what [Putin] would like to see. Same thing with Ukraine. It’s about Putin’s message. I think some of these protesters are spontaneous, and organic and sincere. Some, I think, are connected to Russia. I say that, having looked at this for a long time,” Pelosi continued.
In a claim that does not appear to be supported by any evidence, Pelosi claimed that anti-Israel protestors are “directly connected” to Russia and Vladimir Putin. This comes after she was confronted at her home by anti-Israel protesters.
There have been no reports indicating that Russia is involved in American progressives’ anti-Israel protesting. From all appearances, the pro-Palestinian movement is coming from progressive college students and other left-wing activists.
It’s unclear why Pelosi was so quick to blame Russia—aside from the country being a common scapegoat for Democrats. She might be trying to find a way to tie this anti-Israel movement to Donald Trump, whom she’s repeatedly claimed is connected to Russia.
But Trump is strongly pro-Israel and in no way supports this movement. However, many Democrats—including some of Pelosi’s own colleagues in Congress—have voiced support for Palestinians while attacking Israel.
It does not seem as if Pelosi believes these protesters are from Russia. A video shows her shouting at some of them, claiming they are from China.
Nancy Pelosi absolutely LOSES it after pro-Palestinian protesters take over her driveway, trigger her into shouting match:
“GET OUT OF MY WAY! GO BACK TO CHINA WHERE YOU CAME FROM!”

Democrats are having an increasingly difficult time confronting anti-Israel activists in their own ranks. Several high-profile university professors have lost their jobs because they refused to confront anti-Semitism on their campuses.
- Nancy Pelosi claimed anti-Israel protesters in America are “directly connected” to Russia.
- Some protestors demonstrated outside her house; she claimed they were from China.
- The vast majority of Americans protesting Israel are left-wing progressives.
