The alleged attacker of Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was clearly not a conservative, the evidence is now revealing.
The home where David DePaper reportedly lived includes many signs he was much different than the accusations some have made about him being a right-wing extremist.

"A homemade 'Black Lives Matter' sign in the window on the right? A sign that reads "Berkeley Stands United Against Hate" on the left?" the Western Journal reported.
"A rainbow American flag adorned with marijuana leaves? Those aren't the calling cards most would associate with the alt-right," it added.

"Yesterday morning, a violent man broke into our family home, demanded to confront me and brutally attacked my husband Paul. Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop," Pelosi wrote.
"We are grateful for the quick response of law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving," Pelosi said in the "Dear Colleague" letter to all members of Congress on Saturday, according to Fox News.

While some mainstream media outlets ran with the story that the attack was politically motivated, it appears something else was behind the attack.
Multiple sources have noted DePape as having longtime mental health problems that likely contributed to the crime, though it is still unclear why he targeted the Pelosi's home.
More evidence may reveal a better reason for the motive, but it certainly wasn't because the attacker was conservative.
