Considering the fact that majority of anti-fascists are peaceful....and that there is no central organization to the movement, it will be hard to officially label them a terrorist organization.

Angry Grandpa Trump needs to stop rambling on twitter and focus on running the country.

While right-wing terrorists have killed hundreds of Americans already within the last few decades. Which is why the FBI watches them closely.

In that case, Trump needs to label himself a terrorist.

Gee, that sounds like how the GOP campaigns.

I support the right to protest. It is protected in our constitution. Its ok not to agree on things. My issue is the violence. Also they stifle free speech. They say they are anti fascists. But the reality is their conduct makes them the thing they claim that they are protesting.

AntiFa is not like this "majority" you speak of.

So which terrorist attacks have the anti-fascists committed? Because I can think of at least a half-dozen from right-wing extremists over the past few years.
