El Presidente Trump keeps making headlines today through his twitter, this time he says he’s thinking about labeling Antifa a terrorist organization.
Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). Would make it easier for police to do their job!

There’s a lot of people who have been pushing for this, and there certainly are enough examples of their participation in domestic terror. On the other hand, I think FBI Director Christopher Wray’s clarification to Ted Cruz on this is probably reasonable – they look for individuals who may commit violence in the name of Antifa, but they’re not looking at all Antifa individuals. Undoubtedly, some are just urban LARPers who are no threat to anyone.
Either way, I’m not sure I’d classify them as a “major” terror threat. That moron in Washington who attacked the ICE detention center was way better at getting himself killed than he was at hurting anyone else. Then again, they do appear to be getting worse and worse as the media and the liberals keep shouting “nazi” at anything that gets in the way of their statist agenda.
