AOC backs fundraiser for jailed Antifa 'terrorists'

In a tweet over the weekend, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., urged her supporters to help bail out jailed protesters in Boston who included Antifa members.
The members of the often violent "anti=fascist" group were protesting a "Straight Pride" parade planned by a group called Super Happy Fun America that "advocates on behalf of the straight community," the Daily Caller reported
Ocasio-Cortez, in a Twitter message Saturday, labeled the parade organizers "white supremacists."
"One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston's white supremacist parade? Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community," she wrote.
The Boston Herald reported 36 individuals were arrested Saturday with charges that included assault and battery on a police officer.
Ocasio-Cortez's post linked to a fundraiser that sought to help with "any legal fees, as well as supplies for jail support (rides home, food, changes of clothes, etc)."
An Antifa member told the Herald, "We're covered in black so when we attack these guys we can't be prosecuted."
"They are fascists, 100 percent. How else are you going to get them to shut up?” he said.
Responding to the congresswoman's racism charge, the group Super Happy Fun America pointed out in a statement to the Daily Caller that the majority of their participants in the parade were black.
"Not sure which parade and ceremony she watched over the weekend, but of the 12 speakers on our stage, five were African-American, four were women, and three were African-American women," the group said. "This was not intentional on our behalf, they reached out to us in support of our movement–it happened organically. If you remove the three main organizers from the lineup, the majority of speakers were African-American."
The Daily caller noted that U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., joined Ocasio-Cortez also sent out a tweet that gave the impression she condoned the actions of the Antifa protesters.
Ocasio-Cortez's office did not reply to the Daily Caller's request for comment.
In 2018, Antifa members in Charlottesville, Virginia, attacked an NBC News crew. And in June in Portland, Oregon, reporter Andy Ngo was hospitalized after being assaulted by Antifa members.
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
