As Twitchy showed you a little bit earlier, The Rebel’s Keean Bexte managed to catch up with Rep. Ilhan Omar following “The Squad’s” press conference denouncing President Trump’s “racist” tweets and ask her if she would condemn the attack on an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday by a member of Antifa. Omar refused to acknowledge the question.
Shaun King is literally calling the attacker,Â Willem Van Spronsen, a “martyr” after he was shot and killed by police after attacking the ICE facility with incendiary devices. He also left behind a manifesto echoing a lot of rhetoric found in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ tweets and statements, calling the detention facilities “concentration camps.”
The Antifa guy who died attacking an ICE facility in Washington echoed Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's "concentration camp" language in his final manifesto https://t.co/uMIgTnSiU0

Antifa is the enforcement arm of the Democrats, always has been, same way they used the KKK

Using the standards set by the Left, @AOC is responsible for his actions

Weâre about to get a big fat viscous dose of media hypocrisy on the potential consequences of politicanâs rhetoric https://t.co/HLA5jgmQZu

One thing we’re apparently not going to get is a condemnation of either Antifa or the attack on the ICE facility in Tacoma. Just like squad member Omar, Ocasio-Cortez just kept on walking:

Of course she won't, she probably supports their actions.

Only talks when itâs convenient and sheâs protected

Is was one of those press conferences, where the freshman four refused to even dignify questions about Omar’s support of terrorists and then clammed up in the hallway immediately afterward when asked about a terrorist attack.
Of course she won't condemn them. They are predominantly communists and that is where heart lies. She sympathizes with them and probably feels honored that the guy radicalized under her rhetoric.

No, she doesn't know what shame is.

Sheâs a total fraud

Hey, where were the “real” journalists like Playboy’s Brian Karem on this? He seemed awfully ticked over the weekend and who is and who isn’t a “real” journalist (real journalists have copy editors and staff, don’t you know).
When she releases her statement condemning the attack will you post that too or just leave this video up?
— Adam Mason (@AtomMason) July 15, 2019
Our guess is 1) they will and 2) she won’t. Prove us wrong, AOC.

"The Squad" Steps in it!

They will not condemn thatâs who they are.
— Margarita Morales-Murillo (@Margari27840556) July 15, 2019
Hypocrites, but they want the right to condemn everything!
She supports radicals thatâs why she is silent, vote them out!
— G.Z. (@GZITALY) July 15, 2019
The way she's been acting and her words, I'm sure she feels proud.
Would love for that reality to be exposed.

The only good thing about this is now the Feds have been attacked so it will be treated as terrorism. Silver lining.

We’ve already done posts on Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ducking the question, but rather than start a new post, we’ll just add Ayanna Pressley here. She too didn’t have an opinion to share on the firebombing of an ICE facility by an Antifa terrorist.

For members of Congress who spend all day on Twitter, it doesn’t take much to shut them up.
Watch: Rep. Ilhan Omar wonât answer when asked if sheâll condemn attack on ICE detention facility https://t.co/rcwNx3gYpf
