Over the weekend, a member of Antifa staged an attack at an ICE facility in Washington state. He was armed with a gun and flammable devices, but was killed by police in the process.
It was later revealed that he was a member of Antifa, the far left revolutionary group.
Today, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked if she denounces the terror group and refused to respond.

Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota was asked the same question and also failed to respond.

WATCH: Laughing Ilhan Omar Refuses To Condemn Antifa Violence When Confronted By Reporter
After an attempted terror attack by a self-identified far-left Antifa member against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday, a reporter from Rebel Media asked freshmen Democrats if they would condemn the attack, Antifa violence, and violence in general. Unsurprisingly, “fresh face” lawmakers, namely Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), refused to utter such a simple condemnation.
Omar, amazingly, apparently thought the questioning was funny, laughing when she was asked about the far-left violence.
“Will you condemn Antifa?” the Rebel’s Keean Bexte asked Ocasio-Cortez and Omar. “Do you feel like you have any sort of responsibility for their actions?”
Both freshman congresswomen remained silent.
“It’s just like your brother — when you ignore the questions about you marrying your brother, your couldn’t answer it,” he said. “Do you feel responsible for the violent attack abasing the ICE facility?”
People, particularly politicians, refuse to answer very straightforward questions when the answer will incriminate them, or worse, make them unelectable. Just like when @Ilhan could not say "I did not marry my brother", she can not say "Terrorism is bad, even if it is Antifa." pic.twitter.com/nLnime5Q44

Why do they refuse to condemn it?
Their silence is very telling.
