Remember a couple of days ago when some nut job with Antifa decided to go on his one-man Harpers Ferry raid on an ICE facility with homemade firebombs?
Well, one of the members of what the media as dubbed “the Squad,” Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, gave a speech that contained a line that was… well, just watch.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley condemns conditions during visit to Texas border facility: "We're lifting up these stories in the hopes that you will see the light. And if you don't, we will bring the fire." https://t.co/PbhK0aOpJL pic.twitter.com/OfSpYgEX0X

“And if you don’t, we will bring the fire.”
Being as generous as I can be, that is ridiculously tone-deaf following the Tacoma ICE facility attack.
Being less than generous, that is a threat that the Squad is going to incite Antifa to commit more violence.
Keep in mind that it was Pressley’s squad mate, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who started the “detention centers are concentration camps” rhetoric, and that Willem Van Spronsen used that rhetoric in his manifesto as to why he was going to burn an ICE facility.
Every time Trump has even a typo in a Tweet, the media has “experts” to explain how that is a racist dog whistle to incite white supremacists.
A Progressive Congresswoman saying that her side will “will bring the fire” just days after an Antifa firebombing, and I’ve heard no media outrage.
This does bode poorly for a peaceful resolution to this situation.
