( – It’s been reported that in October, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told Code Pink activists located outside her home that they needed to return to China where their “headquarters” is located. The clip from the interaction surfaced online and has led to Pelosi receiving a lot of backlash. 

The video was shared on Monday, January 29, by Code Pink on X, formerly known as Twitter, with a statement about how Pelosi had told their group members that they needed to “go back to China” to call for a ceasefire. The group added that these are the same women who have been protesting for peace for more than 17 years. They said Pelosi continued to take “thousands of dollars from AIPAC” yearly and questioned who the “foreign agent” actually was. 

Users on social media have slammed Pelosi, including Colin Rugg, the co-owner of Trending Politics, who in his post on X argued that Pelosi had lost it. 

Jonathan Turley, a Fox News contributor, similarly argued that Pelosi had made Joe McCarthy appear like a “model of restraint and consistency.” 

Steve Guest, a Republican operative, called for people to imagine what reaction a Republican would have received for making the exact statement that Pelosi had made. 

A senior writer at RealClear Investigations Mark Hemingway, in a post on X, questioned how she could say that and argued that he expected to see news agencies across the country interrogating Pelosi for the racism she had displayed. 

Recently, Pelosi made a comment alleging a connection between some of the people calling for a cease-fire in Gaza and Russia.
