Antifa in DC over the 4th of July weekend was handing out flyers to the media telling them how to report on Antifa.
These are the rules for members of the press in order to go inside the #AllOutDC rally, which is the antifa side.

It is clear that Antifa knows that they are doing is criminal and is generally perceived as wrong. They want to be able to bash and smash but do not want to media to catch them doing it in such a way as to get them in legal trouble.
This is also a direct assault on the First Amendment. They do not have the right to control how the media reports or what the media captures images of in a public place during a public protest.
From The New York Post:
It’s time for a federal civil rights intervention in Portland
After Ngo was beaten, the police declared a riot. Next time, the riot should be declared the moment hooded antifa protesters show up. But Wheeler won’t let that happen. That would get in the way of antifa’s free-speech rights, he thinks.
Evidently, it’s time for the federal government to step in — and crack down. It has had to do so in the past, especially during the civil rights era in the South.
There’s a federal law against conspiring to injure or intimidate a person in the free exercise of enjoyment of his rights or privileges, and I should think the elements of the offense are complete the moment the antifa goons show up in Portland.
What’s missing is the will to protect ordinary citizens, and since the city of Portland won’t do so, it’s time for federal marshals or the FBI to step in.
I agree, but not just limited to Portland.
If there was ever a time for 18 U.S. Code § 241. Conspiracy against rights it feels like now.
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or
If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—
They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
I’m pretty sure Anfia using the threat of violence to intimidate reporters from recording and reporting on Antfia actions, which is a Constitutionally protected right, is a violation of § 241.
It’s time for The Fed dot Gov to drop the hammer on Antifa before they drop the crowbar on somebody else.

You’re right that this is a good case for 18 USC 241, but not just against the masked and probably hard to identify Antifa blackshirts. The other conspirators are the Portland mayor and police chief, and they need to be arrested and convicted as well.
My thoughts exactly.
[…] Done reading J. Kb’s post. […]
Just shoot the fuckers
That is why they only engage in this behavior in liberal enclaves like DC and Portland.
