Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, was recently heckled by multiple individuals during a speech at a New York City college.
The first heckler was heard saying, “That’s a very good place for you…the depths of hell,” while the second shouted, “I came to see a war-monger, but you’re a sad old drunk.”
Security quickly intervened, ordering the hecklers to leave the premises. Despite the disruption, Pelosi continued with her speech, undeterred by the incident.
This latest incident highlights the increasing levels of political polarization and incivility in the United States. While we value civility, we do think… these hecklers might’ve had a point.
