On Tuesday, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene reintroduced a resolution to declare Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.
Over the past several years, Antifa-affiliated groups and individuals have been burning down cities across the country, destroying property, assaulting police officers, beating innocent people, and causing billions of dollars in damages.
Most recently, Antifa-affiliated rioters committed acts of domestic terrorism by torching the future Atlanta police training facility with fireworks, Molotov cocktails, and launching other destructive items such as rocks and bricks at police officers.
Antifa has repeatedly committed acts of terrorism against law enforcement, businesses, government property, and innocent Americans and needs to be brought to justice.
The Department of Justice must deem the unlawful conduct of Antifa as domestic terrorism, as defined in section 2331 of Title 18, United States Code, and prosecute these acts accordingly
This bill would designate certain unlawful conduct of Antifa members as acts of domestic terrorism; designate Antifa, and any other affiliated group or subsidiary of Antifa, as a domestic terrorist organization; and call on the Department of Justice to prosecute crimes of domestic terrorism committed by Antifa.
Upon introduction, Congresswoman Greene’s bill has seven original cosponsors: Rep. Gosar (AZ), Rep. Hunt (TX), Rep. Miller (IL), Rep. McCormick (GA), Rep. Higgins (LA), Rep. Biggs (AZ), and Rep. Santos (NY).
