Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is openly fundraising for a radical Antifa-affiliated "citizen journalist" group called Unicorn Riot.
In a new Instagram Post today, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez 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, among others.
Unicorn Riot is a registered nonprofit that purports to be alternative media, but runs pro-Antifa and anti-law enforcement content on a regular basis. They have recently been praised in the New Yorker for their "extremely compelling view" of the recent protests and riots.
In recent days, Unicorn Riot has been at the forefront of protests (some of which devolved into riots) across the United States, embedded within the ranks of Antifa-affiliated, anti-government protesters who are calling for the abolition of police. The presentation of these reports often offers a one-sided view at the demonstrations, sometimes with commentary condemning the police for their use of force.
The publication has an extensive archive of articles dedicated to opposing law enforcement, immigration control, and regularly hosts interviews with anti-government activists. It also runs an on-going series called "Icebreaker," leaking numerous Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policy manuals and tactical handbooks.
