good move trump.

Quote:
President Trump declared Saturday he is considering labeling the militant anti-fascist movement antifa a terrorist organization.

"Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others)," Trump tweeted Saturday. "Would make it easier for police to do their job!"

Anti-fascists have not killed anyone....

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

Trump would know a thing or two about being a terrorist so I say go for it.

Just ask Nawar al-Awlaki. Oh wait...

You don't know the definition of terrorism, do ya?

How about natural rights? That doesn't ring a bell either, does it?

It is a terrorist organization, but the government has no business labeling groups this way. There should be no special categories of favored and disfavored persons and groups.

You don't have to kill anyone to be a terrorist, you just have to incite terror (who'd a thunk it, right?).

I'd be interested in hearing how antiFA's activities fail to meet the definition of terrorism.

"the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear"
