Paul Ryan Condemns Antifa, Following Nancy Pelosi’s Leadership

Demonstrating the level of courage possessed by mainstream Republicans, Ryan condemns Antifa once the Democrats do.

The fact that Speaker Paul Ryan condemns Antifa only now, after criticizing Donald Trump for doing so along with white separatists in Charlottesville, is telling. He waited until Nancy Pelosi showed that it was safe to do so before he offered a rebuke to the criminals. Nancy Pelosi, the leader of a repeatedly defeated Party, is still leading the nation! She is setting the standard for Paul Ryan and other mainstream Republicans!

“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 in a statement provided exclusively to The Daily Caller.
