Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and two other members of “The Squad” have outrightly refused to condemn the far-left domestic terrorism attack an Antifa activist waged on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility over the weekend in Tacoma, Washington.
AOC’s refusal was captured on video by The Rebel News Online, which announced via social media her unwillingness to condemn the armed domestic terrorist who firebombed a federal government agency.
“@AOC refuses to condemn the Antifa attack on the Tacoma ICE center; refuses to tell @TheRealKeean if her inflammatory comments about ‘concentration camps’ radicalized the attacker …” The Rebel tweeted Monday.
Caught on tape …
Ocasio-Cortez’s defiance to act as a responsible elected member of the United States House of Representatives and denounce violence was captured in the following video dialogue, as can be seen and heard in the link of the above tweet.
"Will you condemn Antifa for the attack in Washington?" the reporter asked AOC while walking with her aides.
She evaded the question with the following empty promise.
"We'll be making a statement," Ocasio-Cortez deflected.
But the reporter pressed on …
"It's easy to condemn a terror attack," he replied, persistently trying to get AOC to condemn the attack numerous times, but she steadfastly remained silent and ignored the entire line of questioning. "Will you be condemning Antifa? They firebombed an American facility. Will you condemn them?"
The Saturday attack using Molotov cocktails setting fire to the ICE center was in retaliation to President Donald Trump’s announced Sunday ICE raid sweeps that took place in 10 cities across America.
“Tacoma police shot and killed an Antifa activist who was throwing incendiary devices on Saturday at the ICE detention center in Tacoma, Washington,” TheBlaze recounted. “Willem Van Spronsen, 69, was identified as the assailant, and police found that he had been carrying a rifle in addition to the incendiary devices.”
Other Squad members refuse in tow
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) also remained silent when asked to condemn the Antifa attack as she departed a Monday press conference with fellow congresswomen AOC, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) – who also candidly refused to condemn the ultra-left political activist group’s violence.
"Will you condemn the Antifa attack in Washington over the weekend?" The Rebel reporter Keean Bexte questioned Omar while leaving, according to the Washington Examiner. "It's easy to condemn terrorism. Will you condemn it? Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend – it's an ICE facility – will you condemn them for that?"
The Muslim ex-Somali refugee lawmaker completely ignored all questions.
“Omar continued to ignore Bexte as he questioned whether Omar thought it was ‘laudable’ to bomb an ICE facility if they are indeed concentration camps, as some have claimed,” the Washington Examiner’s Jon Brown noted.
However, Omar did have something to say at another occasion Monday in response to Trump’s accusation that she is an al Qaeda (Islamic terrorist organization) sympathizer.
"I do not expect every time there is a white supremacist who attacks or there is a white man who kills in a school or in a movie theater or in a mosque or in a synagogue, I don’t expect my white community members to respond on whether they love that person or not,” Omar proclaimed Monday, according to the Examiner. “And so, I think it is beyond time – it’s beyond time – to ask Muslims to condemn terrorists."
Needless to say, she evaded the question and would not even condemn one of the world’s most carnal and notorious Islamic terrorist groups for murdering countless innocent “infidels” in the name of their Islamic god, Allah.
Pressley also gave reporters the silent treatment.
“Democratic Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley refuses to denounce Antifa attacking ICE facilities for 2 mins straight:” Independent Journal Review journalist Caleb Hull tweeted Monday, which was also captured on video in his post.
The conservative media indicates that The Squad’s joint effort to evade condemning the Antifa attack is a statement in and of itself – forwarding their pro-immigration open borders, anti-American agenda.
“Democrats have been calling for elimination of ICE for nearly a year,” Townhall reported. “In the past few months, their rhetoric about the agency has escalated and a number of members have referred to ICE agents as Nazis. When asked about the attack, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar – who has called for elimination of the Department of Homeland Security – [also] didn't want to talk about it. Their silence is telling.”
