AOC Refuses to Condemn Violence Over Roe's Overturning Amid Leftists Signaling They're Rioting

President Joe Biden might have discouraged violence during his post-Roe overturn speech, but that doesn’t mean every Democrat is following his lead. In fact, according to the words and actions of some elected officials, it would appear more destruction and violence is exactly what’s needed right now.


As RedState reported previously, Democrats like California Rep. Maxine Waters and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were more than happy to encourage activists to take to the streets.

AOC, in particular, could be seen yelling into a bullhorn that anger isn’t enough and that they must “fill the streets.”

The issue is that the left has a very negative track record of taking to the streets and getting destructive and violent. In fact, judging by the Democrat Party’s reaction to the Black Lives Matter riots, they seem to find a lot to love about it.

But hey, Biden condemned it right? Perhaps the unofficial leader of the radicals within the Democrat Party will condemn it too. Mary Margaret Olohan of the Daily Wire asked AOC if she would condemn the violence that’s been ongoing again pro-life groups and pregnancy centers by a group called “Jane’s Revenge,” especially since they’ve threatened more.

AOC’s response..was not to respond at all.


Saying “I condemn the violence and I encourage no one to be violent” would take all of three seconds, but instead, AOC ignored the question despite looking right at Olohan when she was asking.

Of course, this isn’t the first time AOC has refused to condemn violence by Antifa back in 2019.

According to The Daily Wire, Jane’s Revenge has taken responsibility for various attacks on pro-life centers all over the nation, saying that attacking these centers is “easy and fun”:

“We have demonstrated in the past month how easy and fun it is to attack,” the message said. “We are versatile, we are mercurial, and we answer to no one but ourselves. We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti.”

Any pro-life group that closes its doors and “stops operating” will not be a target of the wrath of Jane’s Revenge, the message said. But the group issued a message to those who continue to provide services to pregnant women in need: “it’s open season, and we know where your operations are.”

“The infrastructure of the enslavers will not survive,” the message said. “We will never stop, back down, slow down, or retreat. We did not want this; but it is upon us, and so we must deal with it proportionally.”


While some of these “attacks” feature graffiti and red paint on the front of doors, some locations have been firebombed.

It’s these kinds of attacks that AOC is refusing to condemn, leaving many to wonder if (or flat out assume) she’s fully in support of the violence these groups will hoist upon the public.
