‘Squad’ Member Ayanna Pressley Puts Together Fund to Bail Out Antifa Protesters Who Assaulted Boston Cops

I recently received a fundraising email from my home state’s Massachusetts Republican Party (Mass GOP). Unfortunately, people in the commonwealth saw fit to elect the AOC-led “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley to Congress.

And what is she up to now? According to the email, earlier this month, the Bay State radical “put together a fund to BAIL OUT members of Antifa who took their violent, anti-American protests to the streets of Boston.” What did the fascist protesters do? Only assault police officers.

As an article at explains, “the Radical Democrats are siding with the same mask-wearing mob that spat upon, tossed bottles of urine at, and assaulted Boston police officers.” Suffolk County (Boston) District Attorney Rachael Rollins, whom I have written about previously, is attempting to dismiss charges against nine radical protesters charged with assaulting cops. Reportedly, protesters injured four officers, all of whom received medical treatment.

Refreshingly, a Boston Municipal Court judge is attempting to thwart DA Rollin’s radical efforts. Also, a breath of fresh air, Jim Lyons, chairman of the Mass GOP said, “These [Antifa] individuals learned the hard way that Boston is nothing like Portland, Oregon, or any of the other cities that have given in to left-wing mob mayhem.” Lyons also commended Boston cops for the job they did to protect the people of their city.

Like Red Sox great David Ortiz aka “Big Papi” said to a crowd at Fenway Park after the Boston Marathon bombing, “This is our F*cking City!” Goes for Antifa, too.

Portland, Oregon’s hapless mayor, Ted Wheeler, should take note. But he won’t, and neither will Rachel Rollins. Sadly, they are both all-in with radical hands of stupid.
