Republican Senators Introduce Resolution To Designate ANTIFA As “Domestic Terrorist Organization”
It looks like someone has had enough of the violent fascists posing as anti-fascists known as ANTIFA. Two Republican senators have introduced a resolution that will “properly identify” ANTIFA as “domestic terrorists.” The resolution seeks to make it clear what they are engaged in under the supposed “protections” of free speech, but what they are actually engaging in is inciting riots and insurrection.
According to RT:
The resolution, introduced on Thursday by Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana), cites numerous instances of intimidation and outright violence by left-wing radicals as the basis for their formal designation as domestic terrorists. In particular, it mentions recent clashes in Portland, Oregon, that saw far-left Rose City Antifa facing off with far-right Proud Boys and police.
The highlight of the late June skirmish was the assault on journalist Andy Ngo by Antifa protesters. The Quillette reporter was beaten and doused with milkshakes that, according to some accounts, contained quick-drying cement. Ngo also said his camera equipment was stolen.
Also on rt.com GoFundMe for Andy Ngo, journalist assaulted by Antifa, raises $100k in less than 24 hoursThe attack sparked a Twitter moment in support of the journalist and spawned a ‘Protect Andy Ngo Fund’ GoFundMe campaign that topped its stated goal of $50,000 four-fold.
Cassidy described Antifa as “violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by liberal privilege,” in commenting on the legislation.
Of course, anti-American groups like Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have attacked those who tried to help Ngo after the attack, people like investigative journalist Michell Malkin.
As was reported earlier:
Quillette editor Andy Ngo was brutally beaten by the domestic terrorist group Antifa on Saturday while covering a protest in Portland, resulting in the battered journalist being hospitalized with a brain bleed.
The Antifa thugs turned out in force to counter a protest by the controversial Proud Boys group, and a disturbing video of their attack went viral.
Ngo’s violent beat down occurred with the Portland Bureau of Police missing in action — more progressive policing? — and because he is a gay conservative, the response by many has been to mock and ridicule the reporter.
Zakir Khan, the leader of the Portland Council on American-Islamic Relations, was one of those who mocked Ngo.
Of course, Malkin is not one to be intimidated. She fired back.
“Goodnight everyone except Antifa criminals who I plan to sue into oblivion and then sow salt into their yoga studios and avocado toast stands until nothing grows there, not even the glimmer of a violent criminal conspiracy aided by the effete impotence of a cowed city government,” Harmeet K. Dhillon tweeted.

Check out her interview, if you missed it.
In response to many requests, a legal fund has been started to raise funds for a lawsuit against both private and public parties who contributed to the multiple assaults on @MrAndyNgo (and others) this weekend in Portland. You may contribute here: https://t.co/5QBvTMPI13

So far, nearly 50% of the goal has been met by real Americans who are tired of being bullied and seeing these fascist, paid provocateurs attacked innocent people.
As far as the resolution goes, it will require changing or clarifying current federal law.
In response to an August 2017 petition to formally recognize Antifa as a terrorist entity, the White House said that “although Federal law provides a mechanism to designate and sanction foreign terrorist organizations and foreign state sponsors of terrorism, there is currently no analogous mechanism for formally designating domestic terrorist organizations.”
