If all Antifa did was talk, this would be a non-issue. They have done a lot more than that.
Individuals have done a lot of bad stuff in their name, but there is no evidence they are a centralized organization. They are not like ISIS or the Mafia. "Antifa" is a label used by a bunch of disorganized losers.

They are certainly organized enough to notify members and show up at numerous events across a wide area.

I think if we consistently arrest enough individuals for what they are actually doing the organizational aspect might become moot.

The United States will Designate Antifa as a Terrorist Organization

The question is: Can antifa really be considered an organization?

Seems to me it's like calling anarchists or socialists an "organization."

My concern is the slippery slope of unintended consequence this may have. The next regime in office may dub the NRA, RTKABA, or organization like the ACLJ a “ Terrorist “ organization.

It could lead to the attempted shut down of any type of protest that they don’t like.
Hopefully not, but I don’t really trust the government’s discernment or benevolent judgement these days.
We already have seen their hand.

Remember when one city declared that the NRA was a terrorist organization?

Attorney General Janet Reno declared all so-called Patriots Terrorists after Waco.

Nothing new.

Okay.

Publicly hang the ones you catch; no more “catch and release.”

Same with the looters.

Sound better?

Antifa is organized to a bigger degree than some here think. They are mobilized and moved to wherever the organization needs them to be very quickly. In some cases they have been in place before some events started so they could cause chaos. Antifa has a communication system in place. They clearly have leaders with a vision directing things.

I think you are correct, although it's difficult to measure. There are multiple Facebook pages that identify as Antifa. They have a logo. They show up wearing the same clothes, although it is not a specific uniform. I'd say they are somewhat loosely organized, perhaps like the Viet Cong or Al Queda, but that doesn't make them any less a terrorist organization.

The Trump administration appears to have pretty effectively put down Al Queda and most of the other middle eastern terrorist organizations. Have they been destroyed? Absolutely not, but when was the last time you heard about Al Queda or the Taliban?

Sitting back and doing nothing doesn't address the issue.

Just saw where Mayor DeBlasio's daughter was arrested last night at a protest.
Bet he is one proud papa.
Two lawyers, recent to the NY BAR were arrested for firebombing a police car last night.
Wonder if they will be disbarred, I doubt it.
St. Johns church in DC set on fire, monuments defaced, Secret Service Agents injured, Trump had to hunker down in a bunker for a while last night.
So have we reached a tipping point yet?
Or should they be allowed to just blow off some steam.
When the White House is threatened and our President has to be put in a bunker for safety it is no longer a protest, it is an insurrection

I hope by designating Antifa as a terrorist organization, that gives the FBI and law enforcement extra means to track them down. I assume it does but I don't know the inside of law enforcement.

I think the money comes from George Soros and his cronies who want a New World Order. They are becoming more desperate because so far, they'd had several defeats. Trump beat Hillary, BREXIT went through and COVID is losing ground with states opening back up and the stock market doing pretty well.

I expect these riots to continue for some time as Soros pumps money into them and the Liberal Mayors and Governors do very little to stop them.

This is long overdue. They need to Federally prosecute every one of these people who are participating in the riots if there is any way to do it.

Donald Trump: The United States will Designate Antifa as a Terrorist Organization

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.


^^This^^

Some, many, most (you pick) of the demonstrations were designed to be peaceful, but the Antifa people created problems and got the riots started.

I would have never imagined crap like this happening in my neck of the woods, but it did yesterday. All of the Wal-marts (4 in my area) were locked down, as well as Target, some other bigger chain stores and a few smaller individual owned retail stores. From what I have heard, these were peaceful protests and nothing got destroyed, but precautions were taken none the less. I usually only carry my EDC pistol and a backup truck pistol, but starting tomorrow, my AR is going to be riding as well. May not need it, but would rather have some more fire power if something was to go down.

When the forensic accountants in the FBI trace the money and support back to The Soros organizations they need to be shut down and old George needs to go to prison and then deported.
Same way they shut down those middle east charity groups that were just fund raising for Hamas and The brotherhood.

Most of us are pretty sure George Soros is funding these operations but he's so insulated from it that I doubt he'll ever be held accountable. The middle men might not know who they're really working for because transferring funds via the internet can be difficult to trace.
Real organizers of this be they soroses, bloombergs, or whoever will never be punished. Not even pointed at. Pretty much as those who organized killing Kennedy, or demolising WTC towers. And we can keep blowing bubbles here in admiration... but that doesn't matter.

Kilted Cowboy, I sincerely hope you are right on this one. However, the FBI and DOJ have spent the greater part of 4 years trying to frame Trump and Flynn and anyone else they can. I frankly don't trust either FBI or DOJ on this at all. I am sure some misguided college girls will get rounded up, slapped on the wrist, pardoned, and then the press can report that ANTIFA is a conspiracy theory. I really wish I were wrong on this.
