Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.
I know, I know… We are required to be civilized and stuff. So we can’t shoot them…. yet.
So maybe this info is why all of the sudden the Democrats and the Media are trying to separate themselves from Antifa. I just could not digest that they were unaware for eight frigging months that there was a bunch of black hooded animals attacking people they don’t like for any reason.
And do not believe Antifa will disappear. That kind of deniable tool is too tempting for the Left to simply destroy. They will probably be re-branded into something else, perhaps all red like the Chavistas’ “Colectivos” in Venezuela.
