Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught openly fundraising for a radical group affiliated with Antifa. The group, Unicorn Riot, is a “citizen journalist” group that broadcast Antifa riots and protests.
In an Instagram Post, AOC endorsed donating to Black Lives Matter, Black Trans Travel Fund, Femme Empowerment Project, Committee to Protect Journalists, Know Your Rights Camp, COVID Bailout NYC, The Innocence Project, and Unicorn Riot.
Why is AOC raising money for anti-government radical extremists? Unicorn Riot is straight up Antifa. pic.twitter.com/gGZz5HwfCA

Unicorn Riot is a registered nonprofit that claims to be part of the alternative media, however, it runs pro-Antifa and anti-law enforcement content. As Antifa kicks out regular journalists Unicorn Riot is allowed to remain. Recently they were praised by the New Yorker for their “extremely compelling view” of the riots.
This is what Antifa and their political backers intend to do about the first amendment – they are not in favor of a free press. Sound familiar? It should – the anti-facists have a facist platform yet journalists don’t bother to look at their ideology or what they do… https://t.co/Vr55Ij0Bth

Unicorn Riot has been seen participating in large protests (some turned into riots) in many cities across the country. The group seems to always be placed close to those in the higher ranks of Antifa and anti-government protesters who want to defund the police.
The group has a library of articles opposing law enforcement, immigration control, and runs a series called “Icebreaker,” leaking numerous Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policy manuals and tactical manuals.
It’s been recently reported ICE surfaced with a deployment at at least one NYPD precinct.

Unicorn riot also assisted rioters by posting federal training manuals for riot control.

Just reminder that Twitter will allow these groups to post material like this but they will censor the President.
