A new national petition calls on President Trump to label the violent black clad group Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.
The petition reads:
As President Trump’s first term comes to a close, Antifa organizations all around the nation have gotten even more violent and depraved. They have burnt down universities, attacked the elderly and even threatened acid attacks. Antifa continues to target their fellow citizens with acts of violence and intimidation in order to reach a desired political outcome. Recently, members of Antifa brutally assaulted an independent journalist, who remains hospitalized with a brain bleed after being viciously beaten and doused in liquid concrete.
Demand the White House and President Trump take direct action in labeling Antifa as a domestic terrorist group, full stop. Our nation’s security and homeland are at risk until we are able to clearly define Antifa as domestic terrorists.
End this madness.
In order to sign the petition, the only thing citizens need to do is enter their name and email. Once they submit it they will receive an email to verify signing the petition.
The petition, started by We The People, needs 75,000 signatures by July 30. As of June 30 it had more than 24,000 signatures.
Antifa claims to be a social activist organization:
But it actually implements exactly what it claims to oppose. Violence is not protected by the First Amendment.
