Trump Designates Antifa “A Terrorist Organization”

In what should not come as a surprise to many (especially those with open minds and open eyes), President Trump has tweeted that he is designating Antifa a terrorist organization.

This decision comes almost a year after he first tweeted that he was considering labeling the militant, black-clad, mask-wearing ‘anti-fascist’ group known as Antifa as a terrorist organization, just one week after GOP Senators introduced a bill to “properly” identify the group as domestic terrorists.

“Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others),” tweeted Trump, adding “Would make it easier for police to do their job!”

The question is what does this mean in terms of response. Deadly force allowed?

By way of background, we remind readers that Antifa has gained notoriety since the 2016 election for instigating violent confrontations with conservatives – most recently journalist Andy Ngo, who was beaten and robbed by members of Portland’s Antifa cell, sending him to the hospital.

In July, 2018, the same Portland groupl, Rose City Antifa, planned a “direct confontation” with participants at a pro-Trump rally – “calling for militant antifascist resistance against Patriot Prayer,” according to a call to action on the leftist website, “It’s Going Down.”

The previous month, a clash between the groups ended up in a viral video of an Antifa member using an object to assault conservative Ethan Michael Nordean, also known as Rufio – who subsequently knocked out the ‘terrorist’ (or so he would be classified under the new declaration).

Last week, GOP Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) introduced a bill to classify Antifa as domestic terrorists – defining it as “a movement that intentionally combines violence with the group’s alt-left positions,” and “represents opposition to the democratic ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all.”

As noted by The Blaze, however, labeling Antifa as “Domestic Terrorists” may also require an entirely new law.

federal law does not have the same clear-cut designation for domestic terrorism organizations that it does for foreign terror organizations (FTOs), explained Andy McCarthy in a 2017 column at National Review.

“There are federal-law processes for designating foreign and international terrorism because defending against foreign threats to national security is primarily a federal responsibility,” McCarthy explained, because foreign operatives have fewer civil rights protections than American citizens and that the best weapon against domestic terror is local law enforcement, not federal. -The Blaze

Why is the left so violent?

    The largest, most aggregious, vile, institutionalized group of terrorists on planet earth hail from Warshington, CC (corruption central). Good riddance. USA is a dead man walking, looted, amoral, demoralized, shell of a ‘super power’ that doesn’t produce its own underwear or uniforms for its mighty military (which can’t fight it’s way out of a wet paper bag – think Afghanistan). We are a paper tiger, we can’t secure the oil necessary to maintain the status quo on the streets of Amurica and operate this ludicrous US military/GESTAPO police apparatchik. If ANTIFA is a terror group ‘officially’ then it’s sponsors and funders need to immediately be arrested, tried, and hung. That would be George Soros among others. Don’t hold your breath. Mr. Chtrump has demonstrated over and over he’s all bark and no bite. All you Chtrumpeteers out there keep cheerleading on this latest installment of Fraud In Chief.

    The National Guard is a joke. Likely much to blame on black brown and women in command in the new PC “don’t let your white intelligence, masculinity and superiority shine. Defer to lessers so you don’t get called a sexist or racist.

    Get special forces out there AND MOW THE TERRORISTS / ENEMIES WITHIN DOWN !!!!
