MIAMI: Proud Boys Scream At “Fucking Communist” Nancy Pelosi In Protest Organized By GOP [VIDEO]

The New York Post reports:

Nancy Pelosi was hounded by a group of protesters in Florida — with some cursing and calling her a “communist.” Video of the confrontation shows the small group of hecklers shouting obscenities and calling Pelosi a communist in English and Spanish as she walks into a Wednesday campaign event for congressional hopeful Donna Shalala in Coral Gables.

“You don’t belong here you f–ing communist f-k,” one person howls. “You and your f–ing Democrats.” When Pelosi wordlessly walks by and enters the building, the protesters start pounding on the door. “Open up! It’s the Proud Boys in here,” one person says, referring to the far-right hate group involved in a brawl in Manhattan last weekend.

The Washington Post reports:

Photographs taken of the protest around the event, which appears to have been organized by Nelson Diaz, the chairman of the Republican Party in Miami-Dade County, according to emails posted online by radio host Grant Stern, show some protesters with Proud Boys gear.

According to the right-wing blog Big League Politics, the video was shot by a man who has been previously identified in reports as the leader of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys. In an email, Diaz said that he was not a member nor supporter of the group. “Up until a few days ago, I had never heard of them,” he said.

The video was seized on by fringe right-wing sites as a sign of the retribution Democrats face in the wake of other high-profile incidents where Republicans have been confronted by protesters in public at places such as restaurants.
