The Democrats have dedicated nonstop coverage to the horrific Capitol Hill riot.
But they ignore left-wing political violence at all costs.
Now far-left terrorists did something in Washington that Democrats refuse to acknowledge.
Antifa has been allowed to operate with impunity for years because the Democrat establishment refuses to hold them to account.
As a result, Antifa has escalated its tactics over the past years.
And now the authoritarian communist group took control of an entire hotel in Olympia, Washington.
The Olympia Police Department said in a statement:
“The Olympia Police Department (OPD) is in the process of clearing the Downtown Olympia Red Lion Hotel after it was forcibly occupied by a group identified as Oly Housing Now, a homeless activist group . . . OPD received reports that the employees felt under threat from the group, and that an employee was allegedly assaulted . . . Employees reported that some members of the activist group inside the hotel were armed with items such as hatchets, batons, knives and had gas masks, helmets and goggles apparently in preparation for a confrontation.”
OPD said approximately 45 members of the Antifa group took over the hotel while 40 rooms in the hotel were booked; guests were forced to shelter inside their rooms.
Some of Antifa members cursed at police officers and chanted, “Choke and die.”
This type of Antifa terrorism sadly has become commonplace.
A separate Antifa group organized a similar occupation in Fife, Washington.
This is what one of the local #antifa leaders is saying.
Ryan Endicott, aka “Arrow,” organized a similar siege in nearby Fife, Wash. in December. It did not get much media attention at time & reporters ignored the antifa ties. Look at Endicott’s forearm. https://t.co/QKfuNi1YbN pic.twitter.com/ZqjuxJL0bb

In the span of a few short years, Antifa groups have occupied downtown city blocks, harassed and assaulted motorists, beat up journalists, firebombed a federal courthouse for weeks, and even executed a Trump supporter in cold blood.
Meanwhile, the Democrats and their cohort in the media either pretended they didn’t exist, or excused the violence.
Joe Biden dismissed Antifa as merely “an idea” and Congressman Jerry Nadler called them a “myth.”
It’s not a myth that Antifa is assaulting courthouses and shooting people in the streets.
Some Antifa allies in the press have even written glowing puff pieces, praising their red and black revolutionary chic attire.
Democrats simply refuse to condemn violence when the perpetrators are on the Left.
