Two members of “The Squad,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), have defended terrorists from antifa and offered to help bail them out of jail after their assaults on police officers at this past weekend’s straight pride parade in Boston.
As The Daily Wire described, “On Saturday, about 200 people participated in a much-publicized and much-maligned “straight pride” parade in Boston put on by a group calling itself “Super Happy Fun America.” There to greet them were about five times as many “anti-fascist” counter-protesters ready to “protect” the city from the “homophobic” paraders. By the end of the day, the Boston police arrested 36 people, including “activists” who came armed with dangerous weapons and who proved they were prepared to get rough, even with police. In response, two members of the “Squad” of far-left freshmen Democratic congresswomen urged their supporters to donate to help bail out the “allies & accomplices” who “put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.””
The Boston Herald reported a list of 36 arrests from the event, including 9 suspects with assault and battery of a police officer, 5 charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon or carrying a dangerous weapon, and many more arrested for either disorderly conduct and/or resisting arrest. It is believed the assault and battery of a police officer charges are on antifa terrorists. The two squad members responded on Twitter:
“Join me right now in making a contribution,” tweeted Rep. Ayanna Pressley, linking to a fundraising page. “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.”
“One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade?” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston”
