See?

Everything--EVERYTHING--they're doing is backfiring and hardening the resolve of the sane.

Trump's landslide keeps getting bigger.

Well now Antifa has a Martyr
As this happened in Washington State the Officers who killed him & THEIR FAMILIES will now be endangered.

@DuaneCates

Well, Barr will unleash gunslingers we don't know about.

As I told you, Time magazine reported that in response to the 1992 LA riots, the "shadowy" Prisons, Borders, and Insurrections Task Force had been activated for the first time.

It was described as a paramilitary federal unit of about 1000 men and women.

I've never been able to find any information on it.

@ThomasWic @DuaneCates

Got me thinking.

Antifa is not a domestic terrorist organization because that's not a legal term.

The legal term is insurrection.

@Alex_Graham @DuaneCates

Antifa could be designated a terrorist group, such as the Earth Liberation Front.

But designating them insurrectionists makes them lose virtually all their rights.

And the feds can bring in military assets.

These folks wanted a fight.

Beware what you wish for. You just might get it.

@ThomasWic

Actually domestic terrorism is a legal term...oops.

"(5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that—
(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;...

"(B) appear to be intended—
(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States; and"

@ThomasWic

I guess my point is it would make more sense for POTUS Trump to designate Antifa an insurrection as oppose to a domestic terrorist group. Get more legal standing. Also less argument from the fake news media.

Not really sure Antifa has any specific political agenda. IMHO fighting the "nazis" doesn't qualify.

But they're denying people their 1st amendment rights. Now appear to be hindering the execution of immigration laws. Those qualifies as an insurrection.

Funny story, I took a First Amendment class in law school. The topic of the day was public forums (long story) and permits for speech. Chatted up the teacher and I made an equivalence between the Charlottesville torch-bearers and Antifa.

She looked at me like I was crazy and said something like: "Well, I just don't think you can compare the two. One is protesting fascism, the other IS fascism."

This is the FIRST AMENDMENT SURVEY COURSE and she's weighing speech.

@Alex_Graham @ThomasWic

So yes, there definitely needs to be some formal classification to point to on the level of ISIS before Antifa will be treated as it should by idiots.

@Kambeii @Alex_Graham

It took me days of research to find how many Neo-Nazis there are in the US.

About 2000.

Add that to the 3000 Klansmen.

And as somebody said, half of both groups are FBI informants.

The Democrats now pose an existential threat to the US.

American fascists could all go to the same concert at the Boston House of Blues.

@ThomasWic @Alex_Graham

It's like I always tell people who are screeching about the Alt-Right, or even people who go "Well, I don't like Antifa, but at least they're not those nazis!":

The big difference between "neo-nazis" and Antifa is that ONLY THE LATTER has institutional power and cultural capital.

The former is nothing but a boogeyman over-inflated by people who support the latter!
