USA: Senators Introduce Resolution to Label Far Left ANTIFA ‘Domestic Terrorists
 
https://media.breitbart.com/media/20...10-640x480.png

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) introduced a resolution
Thursday that would label Antifa a “domestic terrorist organization.”


“Whereas members of Antifa, because they believe that free speech is
equivalent to violence, have used threats of violence in the pursuit of
suppressing opposing political ideologies,” the resolution states.


The resolution continues:

Whereas Antifa represents opposition to the democratic
ideals of peaceful assembly and free speech for all; Whereas members of
Antifa have physically assaulted journalists and other individuals during
protests and riots in Berkeley, California; Whereas in February of 2018,
journalist Andy Ngo was intimidated and threatened with violence by
protestors affiliated with Antifa.


Cruz wrote on Twitter Thursday that the group is a “terrorist organization
composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda
through aggressive violence.”

Cassidy echoed his colleague’s statements in a press release Thursday.

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

Yet they refuse to label the people who shot up the black church aand the Tree Of Life synagogue as domestic terrorists, I wonder why?

Just a reminder that the US still doesn't class the KKK as a terrorist organisation

LeatherTrumpet 22-07-2019 11:16 AM

its a good move as that is exactly what they are and the mirror needs to be shone back at them

Liam- 22-07-2019 11:27 AM

Antifa has never killed anyone, how many have the far right killed?..

This is just another tactic to label anyone protesting against bigotry and facism as the true bad guys, it’s completely transparent.

Mr. Cruz has been pictures very proudly associating with the highest members of the ‘Proud Boys’ an actual far-right racist organisation, but heaven forbid people protest the things he agrees with, republicans have fully embraced sewer life at this point.

Seems a bit dumb when they don't recognise the Charlottesville killer or the Charleston church shooter as terrorists. Like so many right wingers, they are weirdly defensive over their extreme elements to the point that they defend them by refusing to acknowledge what they are.

Antifa are arseholes that I disavow completely but they don't kill people, they don't blow up buildings. They don't do anything that really defines them as terrorists. This is just the right wing trying to ignore the fact that Right Wing terrorism is THE biggest domestic threat facing the US right now by using false equivalency to make out the left is the same when it's not.

These senators need to look at the right, since it's right ring extremism that's actually killing people.

Don't know Cassidy, but Cruz?
That Ted Cruz?
Quote:

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign defended an endorsement from a controversial pastor who has said Jews will be hunted and put in death camps before Jesus returns.

Kansas evangelical Pastor Mike Bickle, whose endorsement the campaign publicized last month, runs a project called Israel Mandate, one of whose goals is “partnering with Messianic Jews for the salvation of the Jewish people.”

In a sermon in 2011, Bickle said God would give Jews a chance to convert to Christianity and “raise up the hunters” against those who refuse. Bickle called Hitler “the most famous hunter in recent history.” In 2005, Bickle said in a sermon that before Jesus’ coming, “a significant number of Jews will be in work camps, prison camps or death camps.”

I suppose if the government had fascist ambitions, then anything anti-fascism is indeed a terrorist organization by definition.

That's like asking "how many people have muslims killed", or "how many people have the far left killed" ...

Why not name some far right organisations, and we can see how many people they've killed, and what violence they've carried out.

Anyway, the KKK should be labelled a terror group, as should Antifa.

I hate Antifa but it's just the most ridiculous false equivalency to desperately try to make them out to be terrorists. 'Right Wing terrorism is a thing so we must try to find the left wing equivalent so we can focus on that instead of the growing violent extremism in our corner.'

As it stands there are no left wing organisations that are the equivalent to the ****ing KKK, there are no Left Wing terrorists shooting up white churches, there are no left wingers racing their car into a bunch of right wing protesters etc. Trying to make out that there's left equivalent to these terrorists is pure enlightened centrism and it's pushing lies to do it.

Donald Trump has said that he could win the Afghanistan war “in a week” but did not want to wipe the country “off the face of the Earth”.

At the same White House, the president also made a quixotic offer to mediate the longstanding Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, claiming the Indian government had invited to act as broker – a claim quickly denied in New Delhi.

A ****ing nutter and narcissistic fantasist

I give him until the end of the year and he'll be impeached.

Oliver_W 23-07-2019 01:11 AM

I mean ... is there another word for a group of people who use extreme violence against people they politically disagree with?

Terrorists kill people, or attempt to. Antifa are thugs but they aren't terrorists and this whole attempt by the right wing to fabricate a non-existent left leaning terrorist threat is just desperation and preparation for next year's election. Next year's lies.

Kizzy 23-07-2019 04:43 AM

To try to label protesters terrorists sets a dangerous precedent imo
