“Last month, while the federal government was still pursuing felony riot charges against some Trump inauguration protestors, US Congressman Daniel M. Donovan opened a new front in the battle against radical left-wing protest in America. That’s when the Republican, who represents parts of South Brooklyn and the cop haven that is Staten Island, introduced a bill to the House of Representatives called H.R. 6054. The proposed law would enhance penalties for anyone who interferes with another person’s “protected rights” while wearing a disguise. After news of the bill made its way onto some subreddits on Tuesday, it spread across Twitter, causing a fair number of activists across America to exert a collective: “What the fuck?”
After all, it’s pretty clear whom something called the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018″ is meant to target. …”
I’ve seen a fairly mixed reaction to it on Gab and Facebook. Some people are supporting it while others are concerned the proposed law could be used against us as well. Personally, I don’t think this will go anywhere in Congress, but it has succeeded in triggering Antifa.
