NY firebrand, Freshman Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has once again become the center of tough scrutiny following her clear support for violent criminal offenders.
Identified by BizPac Review and Taking to social media, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pushed a fundraiser for bail money for a group of protesters that included members of the violent Antifa movement.
The arrests, 36 in all, came after a “Straight Pride” parade in Boston, Massachusetts, this weekend, noted by the Boston Herald.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade? Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.”
BIZ PAC REVIEW ALSO REPORTED:
Many of those arrested were charged with assault and battery on a police officer, and a number of others were charged with resisting arrest. Other protesters face charges of carrying a dangerous weapon or assault by means of a dangerous weapon.
These being the folks the radical democratic socialist wants to help spring from jail — so they can “protect” the community.
Ocasio-Cortez was responding to a post from fellow “squad” member, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, who spoke in support of those who “laid their bodies on the line.”
The Herald said there were about 200 counter-protesters, including “far left groups like Antifa.”
Jon Crowley, identified by the paper as an Antifa member, told the Herald that he felt violence was the only way to deal with the people
“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” said Crowley. “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”
Conservative influencer Noah Ring broke it down:
AOC and other members of "The Squad" have been caught raising bail money for a COP BEATING ANTIFA MEMBER
This is a shame, we need to Back The Blue – not raise money for someone who assaults them
