Speaker Ryan has finally condemned Antifa, a day after Nancy Pelosi issued a statement condemning them. Ryan was quick to condemn President Trump for not being harsh enough on the KKK and Neo-Nazis. However, Ryan himself didn’t single out Antifa until one of his establishment friends came out.
You can be sure he will never condemn the violent Black Lives Matter. His spokesperson said this Wednesday:
“Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country,” Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said.
Nancy released her statement Tuesday which included this: “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts,” the California Democrat said in a statement. “The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”
All along Antifa has been beating right-wing protesters who were not KKK or Nazis. Antifa have advertised themselves as the paramilitary branch of the communist party and are demanding the U.S. become “ungovernable”.
Crickets from the swamp!
Instead, he embarrassed Trump as much as he could over Charlottesville. In one tweet, he called the right-wing extremists a “scourge”. He likes that word.
Our hearts are with today’s victims. White supremacy is a scourge. This hate and its terrorism must be confronted and defeated.

The swamp critter said the President “messed up” on Charlottesville. We need “moral clarity” Speaker Ryan said. But we need it from him. He has trouble with his spine – he doesn’t have one. Why didn’t he object to the “vile, repugnant bigotry” of Antifa until Nancy did?
