‘You Don’t Belong Here’: Protestors Give Nancy Pelosi a Cold Greeting at FL Campaign Stop

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was greeted with cold comments by protestors as she was in South Florida for a campaign stop.

The heckling was captured on camera, titled “Nancy Pelosi was heckled at a Miami Restaurant by Trump Supporting Cuban Americans.” However, as The Washington Post reported, the protest occurred outside Florida Democratic House candidate Donna Shalala’s headquarters.

Pelosi was there to campaign for the Democrat, who is running in the Miami congressional district and seeking to fill retiring U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s seat.

Shalala is running against Republican and journalist Maria Elvira Salazar in Florida’s 27th congressional district in the 2018 midterm elections — and Shalala currently takes a 7-point average lead.

The group wasn’t too happy with the Democrat or Pelosi’s attendance.

“Look at Nancy Pelosi right here. Look at this piece of s**t right here. Look at this piece of s**t Pelosi right here,” a protester can be heard yelling. “F**king communist! You don’t belong here you f**king communist! Get the f**k out of here! Get the f**k out of here! F**k you and your f**king Democrats!”

Another protester can be heard shouting, “You don’t belong here,” as Pelosi entered the building and the group began pounding on the door.

“Socialism sucks,” another protestor said.

A few protestors in the group were also seen wearing articles of clothing that referenced the Proud Boys — a reported “hate group” that has been accused of involvement in violence.

The protest was organized by Nelson Diaz, the chairman of the Republican Party in Miami-Dade County, The Post reported.

The protest was first organized in response to U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), a Democrat for northern California, who was scheduled to attend the event.

Lee’s visit was later canceled due to the Miami people’s outcry over her previous comments on former Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s death, when she said “we need to stop and pause and mourn his loss” and called “it very sad for the Cuban people.”

Watch the protestors confront Pelosi below:

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise crossed party lines when he condemned the protestors’ actions.

He affirmed that he doesn’t agree with Pelosi, but he said the group handled things the “wrong way.”

“I don’t agree with Nancy Pelosi’s agenda, but this is absolutely the wrong way to express those disagreements. If you want to stop her policies, don’t threaten her, VOTE! That’s how we settle our differences,” Scalise tweeted.

I was about to agree with Intrepid until the ‘what liberals have had to put up with’ malarkey.
I was a mere child during the 1968 Dumbocrat convention in Chicago. What was that exactly, Intrepid?
Oh, I know all right:)

This just shows the true nature of partisan politics. It also shows what liberals have had to put up with for a few decades.

If you hadn’t seen it before, now you know.

I’m skeptical that this was staged. The more obvious case is that people are now responding in kind to the incivility and rule-breaking promoted by the Left. That’s simple human nature. Good. At least this time there wasn’t gunplay, though assassinating this botoxed, billionaire would have been a great spark… Read more »

Is the only word the Pelosi protesters can think of is the “F” word. Please don’t be as childish as the left.

“Trump Supporting Cuban Americans”, Cuban Americans would not be using the “f” word. As other commenters have said, obviously a “protest” staged by the left. The “f” word is standard for leftist protesters. And if it was a Republican staged protest why would Piglosi have been allowed to walk so… Read more »

Dumb when the left does it and dumb when the right does it.

If it weren’t staged by the left trying to make the right look as hideos as Pelosi’s face, it would be deserved.
