"Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence. Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views," Cruz tweeted. "Like any terrorist organization they choose to pursue their political ends through violence, fear & intimidation. They must be stopped. I’m proud to introduce this resolution w @SenBillCassidy to properly identify what Antifa are: domestic terrorists."

    If Antifa was in a foreign country we would have declared it a terrorist group a long time ago and blocked any funding from the US. We would have also charged anyone assisting Antifa with supporting a terrorist organization.
    Passing these resolutions should be simple and direct. I fear that neither will pass and that the attempt will be used against the gentlemen next time they stand for election they attempted to stifle free speech and the freedom to assemble.

    Finally, there are Senators that calling Antifa for what it is a domestic terrorist group. The gang of 4 (the squad) will be not very happy about the senator's resolution. Hopefully, the resolution will pass in the senate. The radical Dems would rather have Antifa in their back pocket for the upcoming election to terrorize the sheeple. Just don't come to Az. the State of Gun!

      I've been saying this for a while: the "anti-Fascist" Antifa guys are in fact Fascists. I'd like to see all Conservatives, Libertarians, and commentators refer to them as Antifa Fascists and see how long their popularity lasts. I pulled Fascism Core Tenets from Wiki and added my commentary, to show the resemblance:
      from Wikipedia, Fascism Core tenets:
      One-party state
      Personality cult
      Direct action
      Social Darwinism
      Social interventionism
      Proletarian nation
      Economic interventionism
      New Man
      Social order
      Socialism/Communism (instead of Nationalism)
      '30's Fascists believed in Nationalism - A political/social/economic ideology promoting the national interests. In this more global economy, Nationalism is now replaced by reverence for Marxist ideals.

      Imperialism - Extending dominion, by direct territorial acquisition or by gaining political/economic control. Socialists do the same thing as 'Imperialists'. They want world domination.

      Authoritarianism - A form of government characterized by strong central power and limited political freedoms.
      Nowadays, if you're not a Democrat, the FBI is watching you, and the IRS will be auditing you shortly. You can do anything you want, as long as it doesn't offend a liberal, but don't do it here.

      One-party state - One political party forms the government. (How appropriate that its symbol is the Ass).

      Dictatorship - A localized authoritarian government with little mass mobilization or political pluralism. "We can do anything we want. Screw over the Bear Stearns shareholders, walk into GM and fire their president..."

      Personality cult - Use of mass media & propaganda to create an idealized, heroic, worshipful image of a leader.
      Check your Cracker Jack boxes - someone else might get a Nobel Prize for being black.

      Direct action - The actors use their economic/physical power to directly reach certain goals.
      Remember Kristallnacht in Ferguson. MO? Important: Wear a black kerchief so they can't see your face when you attack.

      Social Darwinism - The application of the evolutionary concept of natural selection to human society. (White Male Christian Conservative Heteros may not apply).

      Social interventionism - The intervention of a government or an organization in social affairs. (comment removed as it could be construed as non-egalitarian)

      Indoctrination - The process of inculcating a person with particular ideas, attitudes, cognitive strategies.
      Your daughter isn't cool unless she can Save the Whales, and has a Black Boyfriend.

      Proletarian nation - Countries that were subordinate to the Western imperialist powers.
      Aside: after we're gone and Europe's gone, who are the Western Imperialists?

      Propaganda - Information that is not objective, used to influence an audience and further an agenda.
      Pretty much anything you see on CNN (the Communist News Network), ABC (Anything But Conservative), CBS (Convincing But Socialist), and MSNBC (More S**t from Nancy Boy Commies).

      Eugenics - 'Improving' a human population by excluding certain genetic groups judged to be less desirable. (White Male Conservative Christian Heteros may not apply).

      Heroism - Stories of heroism may serve as moral examples.
      Example: the poor brave Florida woman who had 15 children and no income because those dirty cops dragged her current baby-daddy off to jail. "Someone has to pay for this!".

      Militarism - Belief that a state should maintain and use strong military to expand national interests.
      Example: Christian Serbs that were bombed by NATO and the US (on Bill Clinton's order) to protect Bosnian Muslims.

      Economic interventionism - Favoring government intervention to correct markets and promote general welfare.

      Protectionism - the economic policy of restricting imports from other countries through import tariffs & quotas, and other regulations, shielding producers from foreign competitors.
      This makes sense once you realize that They're just protecting someone else.

      Statolatry - literally worship of the State analogous to idolatry as worship of idols.
      Again, In this global economy, State is replaced by Socialism.

      New Man - a utopian concept of a new ideal human being or citizen replacing non-ideal ones.
      Again, "White, Christian, Conservative heteros need not apply."

      Totalitarianism - a mode of government which prohibits opposition parties or individual opposition to the state, and exercises an extremely high degree of control over public and private life.
      "We'll tell you what to think. and where to get your medical insurance."

      Social order - A set or system of linked institutions, & customs which enforce certain patterns of behavior.
      "You're required by law to use the correct pronoun, and avoid the 'N' word, if you're White!"

      Nationalism - A political/social/economic ideology promoting the national interests. (Nowadays state-oriented Nationalism is considered Conservative and therefore bad, so instead we should be promoting the higher ideal of world Socialism/Communism).

      Statolatry - literally worship of the State analogous to idolatry as worship of idols.
      (In this more global economy, reverence for State is replaced by reverence for the Marxist ideal.)

      Anti-Communism - opposition to Communism.
      Fascists in Italy & Germany were 'Anti-Communist' in the '30's, but realize that this is not an expression of dislike for Communist precepts, but rather dislike for anyone else's brand of Socialism, because they are owned and operated by competitors.

      As far as I can tell, the modern Antifa warrior uncomfortably fits the description of a Fascist.

    They have a NAZI like approach to those who disagree with the. What bothers me most is that the police just stand there and while antifa members hurt people. I just do not get why nothing hasn't been done about this before.

    Lets actually call the Democrat Party a Domestic Terrorist Organization!!!

    And remember, Anti-FA like the KKK is the strong arm of the Democrat Party!

    And this should be the message being sent out.

    Also, @ScottAdamsSays covered in a video that we should be asking "Should Trump be putting Children in Obama Cages?"

    Because it forces the point that Obama built the cages. LOL.

    Final comment. Biden not getting a lot of Obama love.

    Methinks this is because Michelle is being primed to step in and rescue the Democrat Party. Under a "We need to take the High Road" and just get things done approach. But they do NOT want to leave enough time to dig up her ACTUAL birth certificate. LOL

    "organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence"
    Sounds like a description of all central government with the possible exception of the government of the States united under the Articles of Confederation (which was replaced because it didn't give central government enough power.)
