This means the government can now deprive them of civil liberties in investigating and prosecuting them. It also boosts penalties, fines and prison terms for convictions. It allows police to detain suspects without probable cause, search them, confiscate their property, hold them without charge indefinitely, deny them access to attorneys, etc. It's the first test of implementing a total police state. I don't support antifa at all, but this is unconstitutional, and the fact that this designation is being used against American citizens should terrify each and every one of you, especially if you're a political activist. Just because /our guy/ is in office now, who do you think will end up with this designation if we get a Hillary or another Obama in office? They'll throw this title at any group they consider "hate groups."

There's no recourse to challenge it and it'll be up to whoever is governor or president to decide which groups to target. This is politicizing our law enforcement agencies, and that should terrify you even more.

Mmm, I'm not opposed to the groups of people who both promote, boast about, and attack other citizens being labeled terrorists.

If the wrong people decide that gun-toting americans are "terrorists" we'll just destroy them in a way that nobody for millennia will try to do the same.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/terrorist+organization

Noun 1. terrorist organization - a political movement that uses terror as a weapon to achieve its goals

act of terrorism, terrorism, terrorist act - the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear

Sounds like all they need to do is quit using violence and they'll be fine.

BLM is super annoying, but I'm not sure if they have engaged in violence like 'Antifa.'

Chanting kill the pigs, and then actually killing cops doesn't count as violence now?

I see no reason why BLM and every Islamic sect shouldn't be recognized as a terrorist organization.

I can't wait for Antifa to now be linked back to Hillary Clinton.

That reads like an advertisement for antifa. It demonized the pro right side and told us antifa fought against perceived racism sexism and blah blah

Yep. The wording of it was pretty weak to say the least. Basically implying that they only target "far right extremist". No mention of the assaults of regular folk, damage to property, etc. They are also only described as anarchists rather than anarcho-communists.

That's the key. Nobody but nobody will use the word communist in the public arena. There are reds under all the beds now.

Yeah, that's what I thought, however I suspect some of the wording is based on how Antifa define themselves.

Though at least fascism is in quotes. But that's probably there so the police know DHS is backing them up.

Yeah, sponsored by globalist Jews, but I still think it would be fun to make it look like Hillary Clinton is their "Resistance" leader.

I'm not sure, however I suspect the declaration enables police to essentially kick their asses... which is great because they police can then just check the Antifa's website to see where and when the next chimpout is being planned and be their waiting for them... in riot gear.
