My old man used to say that there were some people who needed killing. Saturday a 69-year-old goober who was part of the terrorist Antifa organization got exactly what he needed as he tried to firebomb and ICE facility in Seattle, WA. I really have zero sympathy for him. He was part of a vicious group of thugs who have assaulted people and destroyed property throughout, primarily, the Pacific Northwest. In Portland, where they operate under the protection of the mayor, they have cowed the police into submission.
Not only did the Antifa goober try to firebomb an ICE facility, he left behind a “manifesto” that reads like an Ocasio-Cortez speech. Given those things, one would think that the least she could do would be to condemn it. But then you wouldn’t be AOC, or Chiquita Khrushchev as Ace styles her.
How hard would it have been to say that what he did was wrong? Not hard at all. But the fact is that AOC is reliant upon the Antifa and their fan club for her popularity and, therefore, her political clout. The moment she denounces their violence, she’s done. So she won’t.
