Antifa have nothing to fear from Merrick Garland or the FBI. It is not like Democrats see the law as anything but a tool to be used to repress the Right. The Biden administration is giving Black Lives Matter and Antifa a free hand to engage in all the violence that they want.
“Anti-fascist—or “Antifa”—chapters around the U.S. are concerned about the push for new domestic terrorism legislation that may include them, but say they remain committed to violent opposition to far-right groups and police regardless.
Antifa activists are determined to continue their activities even if the threat of a terror designation becomes reality, and predict more upheaval and violence this year amid America’s divided social landscape and fears of rising extremism. …
The activists defended their use of violence and property damage, arguing it is a response to far-right and police violence. They also believe it is more effective at making protestors heard than being peaceful. …”
In fairness, it is not like William Barr did anything about the problem either though. Antifa rioted for four straight years under Trump. What happened to the Durham Report?
“Top congressional Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, are pushing new laws to stamp out “domestic terrorism.” But they’re targeting only right-wing organizations. If rioters are looting and setting fires for a leftist cause, that’s OK.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a better approach. He signed a law Monday that guarantees violent protesters who destroy property or attack cops land in jail. Regardless of how virtuous their cause.
Unfortunately, Democrats aren’t interested in ensuring the public has peace and safety. Instead, their goal is to label even peaceful right-leaning groups domestic terrorists and put them out of business. That’s un-American …
Tell that to Schumer. He introduced a Senate resolution calling on the FBI and intelligence community to examine the leadership and membership of right-wing groups and “prioritize the investigation and prosecution of such groups.”
Schumer’s proposal is dangerous. Belonging to an ideological group — far left or far right — isn’t a crime in the United States. You can be a Nazi, a Communist, a member of Antifa or the Proud Boys. Or any other despicable movement. The FBI’s job is to investigate violent crimes, not ideology, though Schumer’s resolution suggests it should do the latter. ..”
