Trump announces plans to designate ANTIFA as a terrorist group

The explosion of riots and looting across the US have forced President Trump to do something never before seen in American history. He announced on Sunday that the violent far-left political action group ANTIFA will be formally designated as a terrorist organization in response to mounting accusations of the group’s role in the riots.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday. Trump’s decisive action against the violent anarchist group will change history. The federal government has never designated a domestic group as a terrorist organization, and no such statue currently exists in the federal government.

Both Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr have pointed to ANTIFA as instigators of the violent protests breaking out all over the nation in the wake of the tragic killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. “These are ‘Organized Groups’ that have nothing to do with George Floyd,” Trump tweeted on Saturday. “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!”

Bill Barr also announced on Sunday that the Justice Department will work with 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces to focus on “apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.” 

ANTIFA is a loosely organized militant movement that has attempted to brand itself as being “anti-fascist” — Hence the name. However, since its inception in the mid-2000s, the group has mostly attracted attention for wreaking chaos and violence wherever possible.

As Fox News puts it, ANTIFA is most well-known for “threatening and violently assaulting journalists, declaring that all police officers should be killed or at least fired, wearing dark clothing and ski masks that sometimes obscure their artificially colored hair, and even engaging in performative clashes with right-wing groups to dull the monotony of typical suburban life.”

Of course, left-wing politicians and public figures immediately decried Trump’s plans to designate ANTIFA as a terrorist group. “I have questioned the @FBI in Congress as to why they don’t use domestic terror labels for white supremacist groups. They testified that the law prevents labeling US groups as terrorists, w/ severe civil liberties concerns. Where is that concern today?” wrote far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Sunday.

The American Civil Liberties Union also blasted the decision, saying that “terrorism is an inherently political label, easily abused and misused. There is no legal authority for designating a domestic group.”

But one must also look at why are all these riots taking place at this time , could it not be because our President with those with him , are about to drain the swamp , and with all the riots going on across our country , maybe another one of their evil bags of tricks , in such ways of throwing the working people and their families off track of what was about to take place with all those types of people mixed in with those that make up those in the swamp , but what those types people may have done with all these riots taking place all across our country , may have pushed their Idtent button , which means idiot button on ones computer , which looks like those types of people are those mixed in with those that make up those in the swamp , and with what is going on with all the riots going on , may be what was needed to but their evil butts in jail a lot sooner then what may have been planed , and that could be the cure for stupid people, when they end up in jails or worse..

I agree with President Trump. Get rid of these people who love to spark violence and terror they are not for our citizens and should be locked up. Too bad Sotos and his cronies can’t fall to the same fate.

Certainly President Trump consulted his AG, Lawyers & others to establish his decision to finally label terrorists as they truly are. This way, perpetrators WILL be rightfully & legally served justice. Terrorists have no good business wreaking havoc on our USA. It’s great to have a president that calls a spade a spade! 🇺🇸

They are a terrorist group and should be labeled and treated as such. They destroy our country and this has zero to do with #blacklivesmatter, it’s to declare unrest amongst us.

They’ve even beat up any right wing supporters. They are what is equal to Hitler’s brown shirts. Everywhere they show up innocent people wind up getting hurt. Of course they’re terrorist.

Antifa has caused terror and fear long before this horrrible murder. They are not helping to facilitate change. They are terrorists!!

Robert Canaday (@guest_1002726)

If the government really wants to stop antifa or any other group from their violent activities they should go after the money. Most of these people are paid antagonists. Protesters don’t go out and burn the city they live in. Anarchists will throw the first rock through a store window or worse. The authorities should detain and investigate each individual arrested. Someone will talk eventually.

Time for the FBI and IRS to do their jobs. These riots, looting and arsons are being sponsored by a very devious group of people or maybe just one or a few high profile left wing nuts. Follow the money.

Antifa reminds me of the domestic terrorist Weather Underground group, from the 60’s; led by billy ayers and his bernadinebitch, who led riots, bombings and killing of police. By the way, those two are still walking around, free as birds. Billy even calls himself “professor” and indoctrinates our youth in a US college. THAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. There is no time element that washes away murder, arrest, charge and execute; it is NOT too late.

Put them in jail! This violence has nothing to do with the death of an innocent man. Instead of trying to correct the problem, they are making it worse.

President Trump may well be right. Its obvious that calling in the National Guard did not pursway them. Their not law abiding citizens so he has every right to preserve the safety of the American people who protest in peace. Look at the loss of life, the businesses, the looting, theft, all in so called honoring a man that died at the hands of police. If your son, daughter, mother or father killed someone, is the whole family at fault? A police officer kills an unarmed black man, is other officers to blame? No its just the officers involved. If a kid breaks out your window with a baseball, is it his families fault? Sure you want justice, but do you incriminate the entire family. No its up to the parents to make the kid pay for his mistakes. This rioting, looting, burning down businesses are not mistakes, but the whole city is paying the price of someone elses stupidity. The elses are the rioters, the theives, ones responsible for burning down these businesses. Wake up people!

I agree with our POTUS. They should all be arrested and required to pay restitution to those businesses they burned and looted. Today they set a house on fire with a family trapped inside and blocked the responding fire apparatus from getting to the scene. Fortunately, some Police officers were able to get to the scene and rescue the family. This is totally UN-AMERICAN!!!

As someone has already said, this designation is long overdue. The average American Citzen does not go around looting and setting fires. Soros is sitting back and having a good time. We need to get our backbone up and remove Soros from our country. He has violated the oath he swore when he bacame a citzen. He does not support our country. The looters and firebugs need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. In the case of George Floyd, since there is a prior association, that case needs to be thoroughly researched.
