News just broke via President Trump’s own Twitter that the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization!
No more hiding behind masks…
No more destroying our great American cities…
You wanna play dress up and join ANTIFA? That’s fine, prepare to find your ass in the slammer with the charge of terrorism!
And that’s no joke, just test it out and see how that goes for you.
Here was the announcement:
Fox10 had more details:
President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that the U.S. will designate “Antifa” as a “terrorist organization.”
The tweet comes after days of protests in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on his neck until he stopped breathing. Tens of thousands marched peacefully, But many demonstrations sank into chaos as night fell: Cars and businesses were torched. The words “I can’t breathe” were spray-painted all over buildings. The damaged buildings include many near the White House.
Trump has alleged that the violence was “being led by Antifa and other radical groups.” Antifa, short for anti-fascists, is an umbrella term for far-left-leaning militant groups that resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists at demonstrations.
Attorney General William Barr has seemed to echo Trump's assertion, saying the violent incidents in Minneapolis were driven by groups using "Antifa-like tactics." Barr vowed that federal prosecutors across the country would use federal riots statutes to charge protesters who cross state lines to participate in violent rioting.
Police in many areas responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden and the Dems want to bail them out!
The battle lines are being clearly drawn in these days....which side will you be on?
Here is more from our friends over at Breitbart:
President Donald Trump announced on Sunday plans to designate the violent leftist group Antifa as a terrorist organization.
“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The president commented after consecutive days of heightened rioting in several major cities after a black man George Floyd died after an officer knelt on his neck for several minutes while detaining him.
Attorney General Bill Barr issued a statement after the president’s declaration.
“The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” he wrote.
Barr also said that 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces would be used to identify “criminal organizers and instigators” fueling the violence.
Trump blamed the violence on “Radical Left Anarchists” thanking the National Guard for helping quell the riots in Minneapolis.
He urged other cities and states to do the same.
“The National Guard did a great job, and should be used in other States before it is too late!” he wrote.
The president lamented that Democrats in Minnesota waited to fully deploy the National Guard, and warned other localities not to make the same mistakes.
“Should have been done by Mayor on the first night and there would have been no trouble!” he wrote.
The president on Saturday afternoon called for an end to looting and destruction, during a speech at NASA headquarters in Florida.
“It does not serve the interests of justice or any citizen of any race, color, or creed for the government to give into anarchy, abandon police precincts, or allow communities to be burned to the ground,” he said. “It won’t happen.”
