Leftists Come Out in Support of Antifa as Trump Threatens Terror Designation

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that he would officially designate Antifa as a terrorist organization as he and the Justice Department blamed the radical anarchists for their role in the destruction and havoc that has accompanied the George Floyd protests across the nation. Instead of agreeing that these protests would likely go more smoothly and be more effective without this violent group ruining the party with their black masks and tendency to initiate violence, liberals immediately took up for Antifa on social media (and the real media).

The hashtag #IAmAntifa trended on Twitter late Sunday and early Monday as leftists threw their support behind the loose-knit revolutionaries.

“How did I know I’d eventually be designated a ‘terrorist’ by my own country? I’m an accomplice, here to leverage my privilege and platform, in support of movements for social and environmental justice. Also, will punch Nazis or help you find a medic,” wrote activist B. Nolan.

Another activist, Peter Daou, wrote: “Let’s be crystal clear: 1. #ANTIFA = Anti-fascist 2. Domestic terrorism is overwhelmingly carried out by the RIGHT, not the left.”

Even MSNBC’s Joy Reid got in on the mix, spreading the kind of ignorant misinformation that is common among supporters of the group.

“What’s weird is that if you spelled out what the acronym for this loose movement called ‘antifa’ stands for and rewrite Trump’s tweet accordingly, it would read: ‘The United States of America will be designating anti-fascists as a Terrorist Organization,’” Reid tweeted.

Uh-huh. It’s as if none of these numbskulls have ever heard of an organization calling itself one thing while being something completely different. We’d imagine that they would be the first ones to tell you that the Nazi Party had nothing to do with “socialism,” and we’re pretty sure they know that the DPRK is hardly a “republic” of any kind. But somehow, when it comes to Antifa, they’re willing to spell out the name as if that means anything whatsoever.

To be honest, we’re skeptical about how much of the rioting and destruction we’re seeing in Minneapolis and other American cities can really be attributed to Antifa and other left-wing organized groups. Something tells us that this is somewhat of a politically correct scapegoat so that officials and law enforcement can avoid directly condemning the (largely black) protesters who are engaging in this reprehensible behavior. We’ve no doubt that Antifa members are worsening an already-bad situation, but let’s be serious: These communities are doing this to themselves.

What do you think?

  1. Antifa is a group of terrorists and criminals. They have taken advantage of Mr. Floyd’s death to engage in their antigovernmental and anti-American agenda by destroying American infrastructure, attacking police and people. Thank you, President Trump, for designating Antifa a terrorist organization in America. Proceed, Sir, to dismantle the organization and bring its members to justice.

    • So, it is safe to say that this Left Organization, which carried pictures of “Che” Guevera, “Castro”, and the ever popular sickle, arm and hammer…during the riots and looting which went on in our country is finally being blown up by a petard of their own making…A TRUE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION…why else cover their faces, lazy, cowards with their hand out for more free stuff…never worked, will never work and will always follow their Liberal Professors to the end. Never bother to read the history of our nation…not the drival spoon feeding they receive from those Left , so-called professors of the “Liberal Sciences”…may they boil in oil when they arrive at their final destination; Satan’s Playground. I am truthfully sorry for my outburst…just angry and sad for those which will never understand.

  2. As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.

  3. Joe Biden’s campaign is paying to bail these “protestors” out of jail so they can continue their destruction. Never forget.

    This is not about the death of George Floyd or police brutality. It is about unseating Donald Trump and taking over all of our Constitutional rights. They want our guns so we can’t defend ourselves.

  4. ANTIFA are a bunch of unemployed, couch sitters who are militants. There goal is to cause anarchy. They are paid by Democrats to cause racial tension. Obama was great at that also, and ruined our progress from the years of JFK and MLK.

    This group is no different than ISIS, they kill too. It’s not surprising that they are loved by the Democrats. Though ANTIFA will side with whoever FUNDS THEM!!

    • I’m so glad that ANTIFA is finally being called what they are, DOMESTIC TERRORISTS! It’s like calling a tomato, a tomato. Let’s not use pretty words to speak about a radical, killing, anarchist bunch of vigilantes!

    • Let me get this straight; they are militant groups who are willing to loot burn and murder for hire, they will do anything to anyone if the price is right, the democrats love them because they hate our country, and they don’t consider themselves domestic terrorist, they and all the ones who defend them and support them certainly are!


  6. These Antifa people are terrorists and should have been identified as such two years ago. Look what they have done to Portland many times long before anyone was killed by police officers. They need to be thrown in jail and all their funding sources including Soros will be jailed for aiding and abetting terrorists.

  7. ANTIFA, what an oxymoron. You can call a snake a worm all you care to, but, it’s still a snake. Of course they’re fascist. Their actions and behaviors tell all. They are a terrorist organization and their supporters should be treated as part of a seditious agenda, co-conspirators.

  8. It’s actually amusing that antifa, a reincarnation of Hitlers brownshirts, claims to be against that which they actually are.
