A pair of ‘Squad’ members shared fundraising pleas for Antifa activists accused of assaulting police officers at a “Straight Pride” parade held in Boston, Massachusetts, this past weekend.
Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) both posted messages on social media asking their followers to donate to help bail out the “allies [and] accomplices” who disrupted the event.
Ocasio-Cortez mocked the event, designed more as a statement to indicate the ridiculousness in having specialized parades about sexuality, as an “I-Struggle-With-Masculinity” parade.
“For men who are allegedly so ‘proud’ of being straight, they seem to show real incompetence at attracting women to their event,” the New York socialist joked.
Side note – An ‘I Struggle With Masculinity Parade’ is essentially what you see when male presidential candidates line up on the Democrat debate stage.
Kidding aside, the ‘Straight Pride’ parade took on a more serious tone when counter-protesters claiming they were there to “protect” the city from the “homophobic” paraders started infiltrating the streets.
Some of those activists were affiliated with Antifa and had dangerous weapons in their possession. A log of 36 arrests made at the parade posted by the Boston Herald includes charges of “assault and battery on a police officer” and “assault by means of a dangerous weapon.”
Pressley urged her followers to “join me in making a contribution” to a fundraising page for a bail fund for the activists involved in these assaults on police officers.
Join me right now in making a contribution. TY to the allies & accomplices who stood in the gap & laid their bodies on the line today in affront #LGBT hate march. To everyone feeling unseen & vulnerable today…we got you. Equitable outrage. Our destinies & freedoms are tied. https://t.co/xwHQDX7UG2

Ocasio-Cortez did the same suggesting the Antifa thugs had “put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community” and that the ‘straight pride’ parade had scarred the LGBT community.
One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade?

Honestly, this is just more proof, unnecessary as it may be, that the ‘Squad’ hates law enforcement and loves Antifa terrorists.
Both Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley, along with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), all refused to condemn an Antifa terror attack on an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington back in July.
This, despite the fact that the man, who was shot and killed trying to blow up and/or burn down the facility had echoed their hateful rhetoric against law enforcement.
“Evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary,” he wrote in a manifesto. “The handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane.”
Those words could practically have been ripped from Ocasio-Cortez’ own Twitter feed.
There’s little doubt that had this particular Antifa terrorist survived, the ‘Squad’ would have gladly raised funds for his defense as well.
