FBI, DHS Officially Classify Antifa Activities As “Domestic Terrorist Violence”

President Trump was crucified by the mainstream media a few weeks back after hosting an improvised press conference and saying there was “blame on both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville that resulted in the death of a counterprotester. The comments resulted in most of Trump’s advisory councils being disbanded, as CEO’s around the country pounced on the opportunity to distance themselves from the administration, and heightened calls from CNN for impeachment proceedings.

The problem is that while Trump’s delivery probably could have been a bit more artful, the underlying message seems to be proving more accurate with each passing day and each new outbreak of Antifa violence.

As Politico points out today, previously unreported FBI and Department of Homeland Security studies found that “anarchist extremist” group like Antifa have been the “primary instigators of violence at public rallies” going back to at least April 2016 when the reports were first published.

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.

Not surprisingly, law enforcement officials noted that the rise in Antifa violence overlapped perfectly with Trump’s campaign as they made appearances at rally after rally to incite chaos…all the while making it seem as if violent, racist Trump supporters were to blame.

    ABOUT FRICKIN TIME ANTIFA WAS LABELED AS DOMESTIC TERRORISTS! What about Black Lives Matter, SPLC, La Raza, ADL, CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, Black Panthers, KKK, Aryan Nation, Nation of Islam, and AIPAC? They all foment hate, supremacy, violence, fear-mongering and the destruction of the United States and the U.S. Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land. Round up everyone of those mask wearin ninja wannabes and charge them. NOW, stop dickin around FBI and Homeland Security and formally charge George Soros, Obama and the Clintons & their Clinton Foundation as domestic terrorist financiers and freeze all their assets. You want to drain the swamp? START THERE!
