It sure seems like a simple question – Will you condemn a terrorist attack on an ICE facility?
And yet, nearly every member of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ supposed ‘squad’ was unable to answer in the affirmative, despite repeated attempts to coax a condemnation out of them.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) all refused to answer the question put before them.
On Saturday, Willem Van Spronsen, a self-identified (according to his manifesto) member of the left-wing Antifa movement, was shot and killed when he stormed an ICE center in Tacoma, Washington.
Van Spronsen was armed with flares and a rifle, attempted to ignite a propane tank and burn the center down, and published a manifesto prior to the attack echoing Ocasio-Cortez and her incendiary “concentration camps” rhetoric.
Omar Won’t Condemn
When asked about the attack, Omar refused to say a word.

No surprise there, Omar is the same person who was unable to answer questions such as ‘Are you a communist?’ and ‘Do you support Al-Qaeda?’ at the same event.
“I will not dignify that with an answer,” she said as if there has been anything dignified about her tenure in Congress.
Pressley Won’t Condemn
Pressley, likewise, was unable to find the words condemning a terrorist attack.
“Really simple question,” a reporter begins. “Will you condemn Antifa for attacking an ICE facility? Will you tell Americans not to attack violently ICE facilities?”
“It would be a very simple thing to say,” he adds.

Pressley does speak up at one point to mock the reporter and say, “What I’m condemning is a lack of journalistic integrity.”
He fires back, “I’m just asking the questions CNN won’t.”
Ocasio-Cortez Won’t Condemn
Last but not least is the leader of the ‘squad,’ Ocasio-Cortez. The woman whose words inspired the actual attack itself.

It’s almost as if they’re saying, in a confrontation between law enforcement at an ICE facility and a radicalized Antifa terrorist, that there are fine people on both sides of the issue.
Guess we can play the left’s games too if we so desire.
In the meantime, we’ll let comedian Ricky Gervais explain to the ladies of the ‘squad’ exactly how easy it is to condemn violent leftists.
“Whatever side you’re on politically, ‘left’ or ‘right’, you don’t need violent factions joining you or representing you,” Gervais explained after the group violently assaulted Quillette editor Andy Ngo. “They bring your cause into disrepute. They don’t even care about your cause, they’re just in it for the violence. Denounce them.”
Now they’ve graduated to terrorist attacks involving weaponry, and Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and Pressley can’t muster up a comment condemning them. As such, they are essentially condoning the attack on law enforcement.
President Trump is right – they hate law and order and they hate anybody who enforces American values. They are anti-American, through and through.
