BREAKING: Trump Declares US “will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization”

Moments ago, President Trump tweeted:

The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.

Per WashingtonExaminer, one day prior, Attorney General William Barr said it appears that “many places” across the country were seeing violent protests spurred by “anarchic” and “far-left extremist groups.” He added that agitators were using “antifa-like tactics” and that many of them were traveling from out of state to participate in the protests.

As expected the reaction online was mixed with conservatives expressing support and some on the left reacting negatively.

Andy Ngo, a reporter who himself was a victim of a brutal Antifa attack replied:

Federal investigative authorities must dismantle the networks & hundreds of antifa cells across the US who radicalize, train & carry out organized extremist violence. They also have international links to affinity cells in Western Europe. It is domestic & international terrorism.

Jake Hanrahan wrote:

Can’t believe this. If he actually does this he’ll have allowed several militant US neo-Nazi groups to avoid terror designations whilst they killed people and built bombs, instead favouring to proscribe “Antifa” which isn’t even a cohesive group and hasn’t killed anyone.

Jason Rantz replied:

Antifa is a cancer on our cities. They have an ideology and they seek to destroy and injure anything and anyone that gets in their way.

They pretend they’re fighting fascism but they have more in common with fascists and dictators than anyone they’re fighting.

Saturday Rep. Vernon Jones tweeted:

I refuse to allow a bunch of ANTIFA affiliated thugs to come to my beloved city of Atlanta and burn it to the ground, under the guise of .

They don’t give a damn about black lives. They only care about DESTRUCTION.
