Two congresswomen who are members of the so-called ‘Squad’ took part in fundraising to help Antifa activists accused of attacking police officers on duty at a “Straight Pride” parade held in Boston, Massachusetts, this past weekend.
Democrats Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Massachusetts, both posted messages on social media asking their followers to donate to help bail out their “allies [and] accomplices” who disrupted the parade.
During the Straight Pride parade, the participants were peaceful and good natured while the counter-parade group were seen as being a disruptive element attempting to incite a riot on Boston streets.
Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez derided the event’s participants, who were more interested in making a political statement about having specialized parades about sexuality, as an “I-Struggle-With-Masculinity” parade.
“For men who are allegedly so ‘proud’ of being straight, they seem to show real incompetence at attracting women to their event,” the New York socialist laughingly state.
The ‘Straight Pride’ parade became more of an anti-white male event when counter-protesters — who claimed they were protecting the city from the “homophobic” parade – took to the streets.
The leftist radical activists resembled prior protesters and rioters hiding behind masks and waving black flags.
Some of the counter-parade protesters were affiliated with Antifa (Anti-Fascist) and had dangerous weapons in their possession. A log of 36 arrests made at the parade posted by the Boston Herald includes charges of “assault and battery on a police officer” and “assault by means of a dangerous weapon.”
Rep. Pressley urged her followers and constituents to “join me in making a contribution” to a bail fund for the Antifa activists involved in the assaults on Boston police officers.
Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez suggested the Antifa thugs had “put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community” and that the ‘straight pride’ parade had scarred the LGBTQ community.

Both Ocasio-Cortez and Pressley, along with Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, all had refused to condemn an Antifa terror attack on an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington back in July.
This, despite the fact that the man, who was shot and killed trying to blow up and/or burn down the facility had echoed their hateful rhetoric against law enforcement.
“Evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary,” he wrote in a manifesto. “The handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane.”
Those words could practically have been ripped from Ocasio-Cortez’ own Twitter feed. There’s little doubt that had this particular Antifa terrorist survived, the ‘Squad’ would have gladly raised funds for his defense as well.
