Trump And Barr vs ANTIFA and the Democrats

Trump Antifa Far Left
In a long overdue assault on domestic terrorism, President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr appear to be ready to take on ANTIFA.

President Trump tweeted on Sunday that he plans to designate the violent leftist group Antifa as a terrorist organization: “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Concurrently, Attorney General Barr issued a statement which put a solid ideological footing under the President’s announcement:

With the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful and legitimate protests have been hijacked by violent radical elements.  Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.

It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it.  The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protestors, as well as all other citizens.

It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances.  Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed.

It is the responsibility of state and local leaders to ensure that adequate law enforcement resources, including the National Guard where necessary, are deployed on the streets to reestablish law and order.  We saw this finally happen in Minneapolis last night, and it worked.

Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.

Interestingly, while President Trump and Attorney General Barr were moving the federal government to quell the violence and identify the perpetrators behind it, Democrats appeared to be taking the side of the arsonists.

Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) tweeted:

Too many folks are confused when they hear we need to #DefundPolice. I ask you to engage in this debate with an openness. There is real validity in dismantling the current racist system that has led to this pain.

Likewise, Ayanna Pressley (@AyannaPressley) tweeted:

In solidarity with the organizers calling out for justice.




 & I are raising $50k for grassroots community organizations in #Minneapolis

Join Us

And radical Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) echoed that call, tweeting:

Organizers in Minnesota are putting their lives on the line for justice. It’s time for us to show up for them.

Join @AyannaPressley, @AOC, @RashidaTlaib, and me.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) rounded out the Squad’s call for funding the arsonists with this tweet:

Alright everyone.

Now is the time to step up for the frontline organizers who‘ve been engaged in the struggle for justice in Minnesota.

Join @IlhanMN, @RepPressley, @RashidaTlaib & I in raising $50k for @BlackVisionsMN and @reclaimtheblock

In case you wondered what “reclaim the block” might be all about, Megan Amram (@meganamram) tweeted this explanation:

Reclaim the Block (@reclaimtheblock) is a MN org that advocates for defunding the police in favor of community health initiatives. Along with bail funds, they are a great organization to support today:

And just to make sure you understand who the real radicals are, ftp gloss (@ftpgloss) tweeted:

So MN freedom fund is white owned... and they are VERY funded at the moment. If you feel a way... Again, please donate to



 as they are black and queer/trans led organizations on the ground

And by “on the ground” they mean leading the riots, or more accurately, the revolution.

Attorney General Barr concluded his statement by saying the federal government would “identify criminal organizers and instigators, and to coordinate federal resources with our state and local partners, federal law enforcement is using our existing network of 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF),” and, “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

The problem for Attorney General Barr is not identifying the low level cannon fodder on the streets, it is that among that among those instigating and coordinating the violence are sitting members of Congress and their families and the children of the Governors who are supposed to be quelling the riots.
