Should Trump Declare Antifa a Terrorist Organization?

By

A White House petition to officially label Antifa as a terrorist organization has received enough signatures to require a response from President Trump.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville, Trump was reluctant to directly call out the specific groups on both sides.

That’s understandable, considering that the president was trying to encourage reconciliation and healing, not take sides and incite against the other.

Though Trump did call out the mainstream media for all but ignoring the complicity of alt-left groups like Antifa.

Trump asked reporters:

“What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.”

Well, Mr. President, a lot more American agree with you. Groups like Antifa have a problem.

For months already they’ve hypocritically protested “fascism” by using fascist violence against all who disagree with them.

From Berkeley to Charlottesville, and many place in between, Antifa thugs have demonstrated they are worthy of being labeled as terrorists.

That was the message of the White House petition that is now going viral:

“Terrorism is defined as ‘the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims’. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare AntiFa a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.”

The petition was created on August 17, and needed to garner at least 70,000 signatures by September 16 to require an official response from the White House.

Less than a week after it was created, the petition already had nearly a quarter MILLION signatures.

Clearly, the American people are behind this idea.
