FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump announced Sunday that the U.S. government will designate the far-left group Antifa as a terrorist organization.
This comes as Trump has blamed Antifa for riots taking place across the country in response to the death of George Floyd, the unarmed black man who died May 25 while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn., after an officer kneeled on his neck for more than 8 minutes in an incident caught on video.
“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon.
It remains unclear exactly who was behind the escalation what began as peaceful protests against police, with accusations lobbed against both far-left extremists and white nationalists. The president has been forceful in pointing the finger at the former.
“It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump tweeted Saturday.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was less decisive in stating who is behind the looting, arson, and violence that has taken place. While he called rioters “Antifa-like” during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” he said, “I think it still remains to be seen exactly how” the situation devolved from peaceful protests to something entirely different.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison told “Fox News Sunday” he has evidence that people from out-of-state were involved in violent behavior in Minneapolis, but he did not specify whether they were affiliated with any particular group or ideology.
A resolution to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization was introduced in the Senate in 2019, stating that Antifa “represents opposition to the democratic ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all[.]”
The measure, sponsored by Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and co-sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, came in response to threats and actions Antifa-affiliated individuals made against ICE officials and journalist Andy Ngo
Of course, immediately after the President tweeted this, a couple of leftist reporters at The New York Times wrote an article stating that the President had no clear authority to do this.
They also claim that Antifa is not an official organization.
Well, Skippy, if you believe that the riots over the last several days all “just happened” to pop up at the same time in every major and some minor cities in America caused by a bunch of bussed-in young punks dressed in all black with black masks on then I ave two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.
As I write this, members of the National Guard and the Secret Service have formed a defensive barrier between the President and his family who are in the White House and a growing army of Left Wing “Protesters” who are milling around in Lafayette Park.
Antifa, as I wrote yesterday, follows the teaching of Saul Alinsky and Adolph Hitler, and picks a target, in this case, the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Policeman, as an excuse for their “Revolution”, in an attempt to “get what’s coming to them”.
Like Hitler did his followers, the Leaders of these “Revolutionaries”, like Former Weather Underground member “Bomber” Bill Ayers, founder of RefuseFascism.org are promising prosperity to all who follow them.
And, like these type of movements, there seems to be an endless supply of “Useful Idiots”.
Of course, the irony is, they are being funded by “Secret Power Brokers”, including the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.
The problem that these “Revolutionaries” are facing is the fact that they remain in the minority.
The majority of Americans disagree with them.
Otherwise, Hillary Clinton would have won the Presidency.
If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and “White Supremacists” are responsible for the riots.
They have no “home training”, either.
These “spoiled brats”, like the Former Imperious President whom they worshipped as a living deity, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to bully and strike fear into average Americans, in order to regain the perceived power which they had under Obama’s failed presidency, while they collected their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.
These protestors, in their immature, ego-driven rage, do not comprehend our nation’s Constitution, which they firmly believe is an antiquated “Dead ” document, with no more worth than a normal everyday piece of paper.
That Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including the average Americans who live between the coasts and who elected President Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.
It gives those protestors that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, or damaging property like the fascist communists of Lenin’s Revolution, whom they are seeking to emulate through their attempts to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America.
Their actions are far from noble. They are the actions taken by miserable little cowards who simply cannot accept that the majority of Americans do not believe the way that they do.
That is called “INTOLERANCE”.
It is also called FASCISM.
If they do not like it here, they are free to leave.
And, don’t let the screen door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.
Until He Comes,
