ANTIFA Absolutely Meets Definition Of Domestic Terrorist Group

EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security Secretary Says Antifa ‘Absolutely’ Meets Definition Of Domestic Terrori...

 

BY:  Tristan Justice

 

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf offered a harsh evaluation of the anarchist group Antifa Wednesday, declaring that in certain capacities, the left-wing group “absolutely” meets the standards worthy of condemnation as a “domestic terrorist group.”

 

“I think what we see with them individually targeting law enforcement, individually targeting certain officials for certain reasons, that is the definition of domestic terrorism,” Wolf told The Federalist, going on to explain, however, that the group’s decentralized nature makes it difficult for law enforcement to offer effective surveillance and widespread prosecution.

 

“The issue with Antifa,” Wolf explained, “it’s not just one singular group. It’s a loosely knit organization that’s very hard to define, very hard to define who’s a part of it.”

 

Wolf pointed to the FBI conducting several ongoing investigations into the group to greater understand its underpinnings. That could benefit law enforcement agencies nationwide grappling with intensifying violence as major U.S. cities suffer under a historic moment of civil unrest.

 

While Wolf, who was officially nominated Tuesday to fill the post he currently serves in an “acting” capacity, characterized Antifa as a domestic terrorist group in some cases, the DHS’s mission lies primarily with protecting federal agents and property. That includes Portland, where rioters held a federal courthouse under siege in skirmishes between militant anarchists firing mortar-style fireworks and the police defending government buildings. In July alone, Wolf told congressional lawmakers earlier this month, more than 100 federal law enforcement agents sustained 277 injuries in Portland, nearly half of which were eye injuries from lasers that can cause permanent blindness.

 

As the nation sees the beginning of a second wave of violent protests terrorizing its major cities in Kenosha and Minneapolis this week, Portland demonstrators surpassed their 90th day of consecutive domestic attacks Tuesday, three months after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Legal records recently surfaced showing Floyd had overdose levels of Fentanyl in his blood when he died.

 

Wolf emphasized Wednesday that while the Trump administration is offering support to state and local law enforcement agencies being overrun by the inner-city mobs, it’s ultimately up to those state and local governments to restore public safety and keep the peace. In the meantime, Wolf said, “individuals have a right to protect themselves and their businesses and what they’ve worked all their life to build.”

 

“Fault lies with those local leaders and those local law enforcement of not doing their job,” said the acting secretary. “This country is about rule of law, and we need the police to step up any time we have criminal riots and looting occur. Law enforcement needs to step in, restore that rule of law so that private citizens don’t have to do this or that, you don’t have counter-protests that become violent. That only happens in the absence of rule of law.”

And there are more "sources" out there, for those that want to do the research.  

 

Antifa leader arrested for assault was tied to Democratic policymakers... June 8, 2020

His endorsement apparently mattered when several congressional Democrats in February 2018 issued press releases with his quote backing their bill on regulating payday lenders.

As the payday campaign manager for the liberal group Americans for Financial Reform, Alcoff participated in congressional Democratic press conferences, was a guest on a House Democratic podcast and met with senior officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from 2016 through 2018.

 

He was also pictured with now-House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking Democrat on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Both committees oversee financial regulatory policies Alcoff was advocating.

Well, it will be a typical Trump administration fiasco.  Lots of bluster and then they will discover there is no organization to declare a terrorist and they will pretend they never heard of it.

Oh my !!!  Here we go with an article from 'The Federalist' once again !  

 

These very radical far right propaganda sources will pollute the minds of people who only read this kind of material. To me it's more than amazing that anyone would publicly post them as a legitimate news source. ROTFLMAO !!!!!

The definition of Antifa (Anti Fascists) seems to be anyone who stands up to Trump supporters. 

Honored Social Butterfly

They're easy to identify ...  they use human shields (protesters), create chaos, use scare tactics, cowards when confronted, openly seek destroy capitalism and overthrow centralized democratic government of the United States,  funded by Soros and his ilk, preach death and destruction, seeks to destroy the nuclear family... yes terrorists, we know who they are and their vile supporters.

Yes they really are.  IMO they are close to making some really bad decisions. 

 

Many Veterans that I know have just about had it with these agitators creating very unsafe zones in various places around the US.  That does not scare most of these guys that are, as a general rule slow to anger, that said ANTIFA wants no part of what these guys have been trained to dish out.  Have you ever heard that old saying, "They picked the wrong guys to pick a fight with"??? 

 

It appears they are trying to pick a fight with innocent civilians that happen to be in public and should be safe.  These Veterans are not going to put up with much more of this nonsense... 

 

My comment to these agitators; Start no s*** and there will be no s***, but if you keep this up we, will be happy to give you a little OJT in how to act civil...Just sain"...

trump supporters keep trying to make a connection which is not there...why would an anti-fascist group, conduct actions in support of fascist groups, who have conducted the destruction and looting along with common criminals. 
And have any Antifa members been charged, or arrested?

Yes, arrests and charges. However to your point, arrests are not made because the criminals are "antifa" they're initially arrested for criminal activity and then check for connections to antifa. In much the same way as a potential act of terroism is investigated to be connected to know terror groups. Don't be naive about antifa, or worse... cover for them via plausible deniability.

You should ask the questions to those liberal rioters in the Democrat cities.  There is where YOU will find the answers.  I assume (but don't know) why Antifa members haven't been charged with crimes EXCEPT, you do remember who controls those liberal cities, don't you?

   Oh my, the far-right have no answer and their mouth piece is unable to speak with any authority as his 'acting" days are over.    But here they are, pretending that he matters.....NOPE!    

    For the weak-minded or forgetful:   KKK was a defined organization, "antifa" - NOPE!   No secret ring or hand shake or masks.

However, academics, legal experts and scholars argue that antifa cannot be designated as it would be a violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and there is no legal authority to designate a wholly domestic organization.[45][46][47]

Antifa was secretly hired by the Trump administration to be a socialist/fascist domestic terror group.

Here we go again, folks.

 

Once again, you have that minuscule circle of "resources" that some use because they can't find what's written anywhere else.

 

So, here we go with a writer for THE FEDERALIST, also connected to THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER, which is also connected to THE WASHINGTON TIMES, which also connected to THE DAILY CALLER, and so on and so forth.

 

Wouldn't it be nice if those that can only use this minuscule circle of fringe resources could find legitimate resources from which they could garner the "back-up" to what is written.

 

But it ain't gonna happen, folks.

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!
