In a statement provided to The Daily Caller, Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said: “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.”

In recent weeks, Ryan has repeatedly failed to condemn the group, and actively contradicted President Donald Trump’s claim that there were “many sides” responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, following clashes between white nationalists and Antifa protesters.

“There are no sides,” Ryan said in a Facebook post. “That is why we all need to make clear there is no moral relativism when it comes to neo-Nazis. We cannot allow the slightest ambiguity on such a fundamental question.”

Even now, Ryan has yet to offer a personal condemnation of the group. Strong, Ryan’s spokeswoman, has not responded when asked by Breitbart News why Ryan himself has still said nothing about Antifa….

    I think one reason Ryan hasn’t personally said anything is because it’s, probably, rather difficult to talk around a massive foot in one’s mouth.

    Pelosi condemns antifa before Ryan. I smell a new Speaker coming.

    It’s because Ryan is a RINO and embraces black violence as a political change tool. That’s a two-way street, Mr. Ryan, and you DON’T want the traffic.

    Ryan will gladly cut Social Security and Medicare benefits for Senior citizens, and also cut benefits for veterans, while taking money from Big Business Lobbyists, to give them control of Washington.
    A couple of years ago, Ryan was responsible for the cutting of SNAP by 10 billion dollars for America’s poorest people, which included senior citizens and the families of American soldiers.
    At the same time, he never complained about Obama wasting hundreds of billions every year on illegals, or Obama giving billions to drug lords in the Middle East.
    Ryan just like McCain, is the Swamp, that needs to go!
