Two Democratic members of the House of Representatives, Alexadria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, both publicly encouraged their Twitter followers to donate to a fund set up by a Antifa before the counter-protest they had scheduled in Boston against the "Straight Pride" parade. The fund's description clearly stated it was for "unplanned arrests" that would result from their "bold direct action" (harassment, intimidation and/or violence).
In 2016, the FBI and DHS, listed activities conducted by Antifa and the associated violence they brought to every event they counter-protested at, as "Domestic terrorist violence," meaning both these freshman Democrat congress women are openly supporting terrorist activities on American soil.
DEBUNKING OCASIO-CORTEZ AND PRESSLEY'S DISINFORMATION
The Straight Pride parade was organized by a group that calls themselves "Super Happy Fun America," and the purpose of the event was to "take a stand for free speech and demonstrate that the ‘oppressed majority’ of straight Americans have just as much right to celebrate their sexuality as does the LGBTQ community,” according to the Boston Herald.
As to being a "white supremacist" parade and anti-LGBT as Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley claim in their Twitter pleas for people to donate to the Antifa groups for bail money, according to the Super Happy Fun America website there are multiple African Americans listed as part of their "team" as well as a gay activist, and leading the parade as the "Grand Marshall," was the openly gay conservative activist Milo Yiannopoulos.
Unlike the Straight Pride parade organizers, speakers and attendees, who never spoke a word against the LGBT community, but rather just highlighted the hypocrisy of those supporting "gay pride" events but protesting when heterosexuals celebrated their own heterosexuality, the Antifa counter-protesters were handing out flyers that called straight sex "rape" and claimed that all "sex with whites is white supremacy," as ANP reported on September 2, 2019.
The irony of the Straight Pride organizers choosing and flagrantly gay man as their Grand Marshall evidently went straight over Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley, and all Antifa members' heads.
ANTIFA ACTIVITIES DESIGNATED AS 'DOMESTIC TERRORIST ACTIVIST'
While longtime ANP readers know this, for those that are unaware, in 2016, under the Obama administration, the FBI and DHS had listed Antifa activities as "domestic terror activist," which was reported in September 2017 by Politico.
Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.
Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.
One senior law enforcement official tracking domestic extremists told Politico at the time "It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them. These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the sh*t out of people. … They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows."
Further supporting the DHS and FBI assessment of Antifa groups' activities as "domestic terrorist violence," we looked into the charges of those Antifa members that the Democrat congress women were supporting.
As ANP previously reported, 36 Antifa members were arrested on variety of charges ranging from resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and Assault and Battery on a police officer. Boston PD subsequently released a log of those arrested and the charges against them, as published by Independent Journalist Andy Ngo on September 2, 2019.
Four Boston law enforcement officers were injured by Antifa groups as the police attempted to stop the Antifa members from attacking the Straight Pride event attendees.
BOSTON LAW ENFORCEMENT NOT HAPPY WITH DEMS SUPPORTING TERRORIST VIOLENCE
The Boston Police Patrolmen Association has some harsh criticism for Representative Ayanna Pressley's from the Massachusetts's 7th congressional district, for her support for the terrorist violence which injured four of their members.
I am writing on behalf of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association to strongly protest your decision to urge your constituents to contribute to a bail fund for protesters arrested this weekend during the Straight Pride rally in downtown Boston. The Police are assigned to work at these kind of events in order to keep the peace and control any crowds or disorder. Whether someone was there as part of the rally or as a counter protest, the Boston Police officers are there to treat all the same and to maintain order. My members have informed me that the individuals who were arrested on Saturday were not peaceful protesters but were committing crimes of assault against Boston Police Officers. In fact at least four officers were injured by actions of some of the protesters. These officers were screamed at, abused and fought by these so-called peaceful protesters. Your actions in support of these individuals serves only to encourage criminal and disruptive behaviors such as those suffered by my members this weekend. This attitude also further contributes to the growing we/they attitude against police officers in this Country. As an elected official and particularly as someone who has historically worked with the Boston Police Department and the BPPA as a member of the Boston City Council you should be working to encourage Boston city residents and visitors to respect and cooperate with Boston Police officers who are there to serve and protect. The BPPA supports the right of free speech, but free speech does not include the right to abuse and assault the men and women who are appointed to keep the peace.
I urge you to reconsider your support of the protest bail fund. Instead, I hope you will make it clear to your supporters that you don’t approve of violent behavior against public safety personnel.
Sincerely, Michael Leary President Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association
CONTACT NANCY PELOSI ABOUT PRESSLEY AND OCASIO-CORTEZ'S SUPPORT FOR TERROR
U.S. citizens have the right to expect that elected Representatives sitting in the House of Representatives will not support "domestic terrorist violence" and those that do should be publicly censured by the Speaker of the House, especially since these two members are part of the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi's party of Democrats.
With even sitting members of Congress encouraging and supporting violent Antifa thugs and terrorism, it is more important now than ever to be proactive in being prepared to defend yourself, because as the 2020 election draws near, Antifa groups and other radical liberals are becoming increasingly violent.
How we got to the point where two radical liberal Democrat members of Congress can get away with publicly supporting Antifa, a group that the FBI and DHS has declared their activities as "domestic terrorist violence," is beyond comprehension, and as American citizens we should be demanding these two members of Congress either be censured or expelled from the House of Representatives for supporting terrorism on American soil.
