    Cassidy, Cruz: Antifa is a Domestic Terrorist Organization

    WASHINGTON–U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) today introduced a resolution to the U.S. Senate condemning the violent acts carried out by members of Antifa and calling for the designation of the group as a domestic terrorist organization.

    “Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege,” said Dr. Cassidy. “Bullies get their way until someone says no. Elected officials must have courage, not cowardice, to prevent terror.”

    Yeah, no kidding. It can't be a coincidence that this happened when the House just passed a resolution to officially condemn Trump for the racist remarks he tweeted against the four Congresswomen.

    The race squad is just 4 people, although I'm thinking of joining them as a white man. I'm sure they'd welcome the diversity of gender, race and political affiliation I would represent. ;) But anyway, Trump is one person who has spoken words that some people don't like. Antifa is a group that has already committed violent acts.

    Action begets reaction.

    The question now is whether the "mainstream" media will cover this?

    If they do, it will be headlined as "Trump supporters in Republican-controlled Senate launch new racist attack against Trump critics".

    Just found this. I think they should do it.

    City officials in Portland, Oregon are considering banning masks for protesters in an effort to address clashes between protesters, Th Wall Street Journal reported.

    The ban was first called for by Police Chief Danielle Outlaw after conservative writer Andy Ngo said he was attacked by antifa, or antifascist protesters, who often wear masks during their rallies. The group was protesting a march last month by the far-right Proud Boys, a self-described "chauvinistic men's group."

    Portland may ban masked protesters like antifa in effort to crack down on violent clashes

    FINALLY! The Left gets on the field! Because in 2018 almost all the domestic terror groups were radical right wing! (HERE)

    But the Left is going to really work to catch up with the Right in terms of domestic terror:

    They should cover it. Perhaps they can squeeze it in between the life-sentence coverage for the RIght Wing guy that MURDERED a woman in Charlottesville during the protests there. Or the many other Right Wing extremist killings.

    But it is agreed that Antifa pushing and punching people should also be covered. It is very bad.

    The notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg was asked what was a “good number” for women on the Supreme Court.

    “Nine!”

    A poster wonders how that’d fly. (with apologies to @cow451 )

    Fair enough -- while there are some very fine people in that group, violence should always be a last resort, never a first.

    Uh, there is no provision in US law to name a group a "domestic terrorist organization." You would think two Senators should know that.

    Good. If Antifa wants to act like terrorists, destroying property and attacking people, then treat them as such.

    We have plenty of laws that target criminal organizations and domestic terrorism.

    You have to actually go after them when they either carry out or plan to carry out terrorism though.
