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.
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.
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.

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.
It took me days of research to find how many Neo-Nazis there are in the US.
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.
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!
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
