'The Squad' Openly Called For Donations to Help Violent 'Anti-Fascist' Activists Following 'Straight Pride Parade' Arrests

There’s counter-protesters, and then there’s those who use violence to make their point. Two sitting members of Congress, who are also members of the unoriginally named “Squad,” have put their full support behind the latter half of the “protesters” mentioned above.

Both socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) put their support behind a fundraising campaign that procures funds for “activists” who got arrested “counter-protesting” a satirical “Straight Pride Parade” in Boston over the weekend.

The parade’s Grand Marshall was openly gay provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos. That’s how serious the people putting the parade on were about their "straight pride." But, of course, there were counter-protesters who didn’t get the joke and resorted to violence, because they don’t know any other way to get things done than to be authoritarians.

Andy Ngo, a journalist who covers protests all over the country, posted a list of “individuals from Saturday’s antifa counter-protest” that were arrested by the Boston Police Department (BPD):

The Boston Herald reported that “four police” were injured and 36 arrests were made during the “counter-protests,” which is exactly the number that Ngo reported were made in the list above.

Never ones to let an act of “activism” go to waste, both Pressley and Ocasio-Cortez publicly tweeted their support for the violent protesters, a move that coincides with the fact that either one of them has yet to condemn the actions of the domestic terrorist group Antifa.

They attempt to steer supporters and “comrades” to crowdfunding campaign on FundRazr that is aimed to “cover any legal fees, as well as supplies for jail support (rides home, food changes of clothing, etc).” The picture that accompanies the campaign is that of a socialist fist in rainbow colors, perceivably representing the LGBT community. The campaign's goal was to raise $15,000, which it surpassed by raising almost $25,000.

Here’s the congresswomen’s tweets:



One thing we can take away from this is that Ocasio-Cortez labels anyone or thing that doesn’t fall in lockstep with her authoritarian ideology as being “white supremacist” or racist, depending on the day.

The far-left no longer wants to peacefully allow their opposition the right to protest without fear of persecution. They seem to now openly support violence against anyone they disagree with.
