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.”

This terrorist’s group is financed and supported by Democrats and Liberals therefore they should round them up and make them talk so the truth to come to light and start bringing to justice the people from the Criminal Gang I mean the Neo Communists or the DNC.
Thanks God we have President Trump, the best President ever and let go and vote for him to keep America safe otherwise the Democrats will destroy this beautiful country forever by allowing the illegals flood this country and then vote for them by Mail.
May God Bless America

YES. SEDITION. Look at the misery and death he is responsible for, the Globalist Frontman. Great Post Alicia.
And Bill Gates. I know If it were possible President Trump, you would have done it already. I can only hope the big politicos will go down this next year. Including, Soros & the Gates, & the Clintons,/Obama -before! the global’s wither away out of sight, into anonymity, hiding in plain sight, to build the next plan.

This is another of the best our great President has done for this country. You have to change with the times. This group has to be disbanded and held accountable.. These are the ones who are creating all this damage to this country. Leaders of these groups need prison. President Trump is leading with the times and upholding the American way. No President has done more for this country then he has. ANTIFA HAS GOT TO GO. THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT

Antifa is a terrorist group started by and because of Maxine Waters. She should also be charged as a terrorist as well. POTUS is absolutely correct in naming them as such. Bill Barr has said they will charge them with what they have done and hopefully that includes Maxine Waters as well as others. The hatred that She spews is horrid to say the least and Pelosi and her gang should be charged as well. If one reads about it, the states they showed up on a peaceful protest were the out of State people and the Governors found out that they were not from their specific state, but out of state people to cause a complete horrid full blown riot. What gets me is they all wear their face masks and hats to not have their identity known. That tells me they are bullies and cowards. If they are so proud of what the do to others, then remove the mask and head cover. But they won’t because when arrested and prosecuted they will be in prison for the rest of their natural lives. The riots rest on the way far lefties and not Trump. So yes, I totally agree with naming them a terrorist group. If any one knows of just one member of ANTIFA please report it to the authorities. If you know and don’t say one thing your sister, father, son, daughter or wife could be their next victims. Is this what you want for them? I hope not. So report it if you will. You won’t regret it.

This is not just about Maxine Waters, how about AL Sharpton, the democrat party, black lives matter, the democrat left that uses all crisis to destroy the USA and our freedoms to support their crazy communist ideology. These people are funding these bad actions. They want to get rid of police, ICE and any others who stand in their way. They want to tear up the constitution. They want to take away our rights to free speech, to bear arms, religion and any other rights “they deem unacceptable. These people are full blown COMMUNISTS!!!

I agree 1000% They are a Terrorist Group. They have been spreading terror for many years. It is because of the Democrats and their liberal/socialist/seditious and (not that all are, some try to obey the laws of their new Country) Muslim extremists factions who want to destroy this Country. Thank You Mr. President for having the courage to label them the way they should be. Keep it up for another 4 years.

RICHARD FOWLER IS SO TWO FACED AS HE LIES CONSTANTLY – YES REFORM IS NEEDED BUT NOW BLM IS ALSO A BAD CHARACTER – LOOK AT HIS EYE BROWS SCREW UP. THAT IS WHEN HE IS LYING OR HIS GUTLESS SMILE.

NOW THAT WE KNOW THERE ARE LAWYERS, PROFESSIONAL YOUNG PEOPLE, ETC. THAT ARE INVOLVED WITH THE ANTIFA GROUPS IN ANY STATE – THE GROUP – THIS SHOULD HAPPEN –

GET ALL OF THEM THAT YOU CAN. JAIL THEM. NO BAIL FOR THEM. THOSE WHO HELP THAT BAIL CAUSE, ETC. HOLLYWOOD, ETC., PULL THEM INTO THE ANTIFA ORGANIZATION AND NAME THEM.

THE RESULT I WOULD EXPECT LAW ENFORCEMENT TO NOW DO IS HAVE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE INVOLVED PAY FOR ALL THE DAMAGE CREATED AND PAY FOR THE REPLACEMENT FOR ALL BUSINESSES AND THE BUILDINGS FOR THE OWNERS IN EACH CITY THAT HAS BEEN ATTACKED AND ANY IN THE FUTURE. NO EXCEPTIONS !

NO EXCEPTIONS AND MAKE IT A LAW THAT ANYONE WHO IS INVOLVED IN THE DESTRUCTION OF ANOTHER BUSINESS THEY ARE TO REPLACE IT COMPLETELY. END OF STORY.

THEN LET THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SEND THEM ALL TO THE BIG HOUSE OR TAKE ALCATRAZ AND CONVERT IF WITH THEIR HANDS TO HOUSE THESE CRIMINALS.

ALSO THESE CRIMINAL GROUPS THAT ARE OVERSEAS LIKE LONDON ETC. THE SAME THING NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

President Trump is right on for a long time that I have seen this group in action I said
they are Terrorist and should be labeled as Domestic Terrorist. There are others too
that should be labeled this. We as a Country cannot allow them hurting People and
tear up our towns and burn our buildings. Someone should find out the source of
who is supporting them and paying them where to go.

AND THESE DAM DEMOCRATS WHO SUPPORT THEM ARE NO BETTER. PELOSI SUPPORTS ALL THE LOOTING AND BURNING WHY SHOULD SHE CARE IT IS NOT HER BUSINESS BEING BURNED DOWN BUSINESS OF PEOPLE THAT WORKED ALL THEIR LIVES TO GET IT GOING AND THEN SOME MISERABLE SCUMBAG COMES ALONG WITH NO REGARD BURNING IT TO THE GROUND. THIS IS NO LONGER ABOUT GEORGE FLOYD IT IA ABOUT HOW MUCH THESE THUGS AND STEAL. THESE BLACK PEOPLE WHO SAY NO ONE CARES ABOUT ARE THE VERY ONES WALKING OUT OF THE STORES WITH ALL THE LOOT. THEY DON’T STOP TO THINK OF THE PEOPLE WHO SPENT THEIR LIFE SAVINGS TO HAVE THAT BUSINESS. AND THEN YOU COME ALONG AND STEAL IT ALL.

Start arresting those who openly have claimed they support ANTIFA, AG K. Ellison of Minnesota needs to be removed, claimed openly and so did his Son they Support ANTIFA, time SOEOS goes on the same List of Terrorists as Ben Ladin, America is the World’s Melting Pot of those seeking Freedom, time we remove the DREGS who have settled at the bottom and become the most Worthless Part and have start to Pile Up and are trying to Push Out the Most Important Parts, TRUE AMERICANS….

Antifa should be forced to disband and the funding of this organization should be made public. This organization has been against our Police any law enforcement, against any conservative groups. They are usually for the far far left liberal thinkers who are not for the well being of our country.

Good Move Mr. President. Thank You. And for Backing All our First Responder Police Forces.
My personal take is The murder of George Floyd was an intentional set up. That should be ‘deeply’
investigated, for all interconnections & leads … if this is so, 1st degree murder charges should be filed. and accessories to murder charges for the 3 enablers.
Yes for going after the ANTIFA ‘HORDES’. Send the ‘heads’ to Guantanamo. You know the kids have been ‘programmed’.
