Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is coming out hard against Antifa after New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez promoted a fundraiser for violent counter-protesters in Boston, Massachusetts last weekend.

“Violence and the threat of violence for political ends isn’t right, and the fact that 36 ANTIFA protestors were arrested—including nine for assault and battery on a police officer and five for carrying or assault with a dangerous weapon—is yet another indication that ANTIFA is an active domestic terrorist organization,” Sen. Cruz told The Daily Caller in an exclusive statement Thursday.

“Mob violence promoting ideology (left-wing or right-wing) is dangerous, and the Department of Justice should open an organized crime investigation into ANTIFA to vigorously combat this threat nationwide.”

Cruz’s comment comes after Ocasio-Cortez used her social media following to promote a fundraiser for a group of counter-protesters who planned and committed violence in response to a “Straight Pride” parade in Boston Saturday.
