Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Inspires Antifa Act Of Terrorism: Where is Her Accountability?

On June 13, 2019 an armed, self-proclaimed member of Antifa attempted to firebomb an immigration processing facility in Tacoma, WA and was shot dead. He leaves behind a manifesto in which he proclaims “I am Antifa,” while also claiming to be part of no organization. He brags that the weapon he used to arm himself was an AR-15 that was unregistered; he also encourages other “anti-fascists” to illegally arm themselves in the same way: “Ignore the law in arming yourself if you have the luxury, I did.” Is this the Antifa version of white privilege?

His manifesto also referred to these facilities as “concentration camps,” a phrase first used for these government facilities by socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). This terrorist already had a criminal record for committing acts of violence in the name of “progress.” However, it appears that the increasing radical things being said by politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have emboldened them to the point of thinking that their acts of brutality and violence are officially sanctioned by “the Squad.”

For her part, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is refusing to condemn the attack; given her track record, I don’t think anyone should be shocked by yet another example of her “progressive” hypocrisy. What more can we expect, when you have “progressive” transracial “journalists” like Shaun King urging his followers to commit acts of violence against ICE facilities, echoing Ocasio-Cortez’s language about concentration camps.

Yet, nobody is demanding that the elected officials that are the self-styled face of the radically Regressive Left be held accountable for their actions. I’m not saying we should be shocked, but we should be concerned.

The text of this coward’s manifesto can be found here, a website which calls this terrorist a hero.
