No case whatever can be made against conservative activists as terrorists. Terrorists are violent. They threaten lives and they carry out their threats. A case could be made in almost any court in the land that what antifas do is terrorism.
I’m not seeing the parallel. I respect this writer; but I think terror designation is warranted here and would show that what they do won’t be tolerated. They have gotten away with it because of wimped-out state and local governments.
Id humbly suggest that we work on presenting the evidence that Antfa is a terrorist organization, and let the reader decide.
The Democrats are claiming that it is White Supramists doing the rioting, burning, and looting. Videos of the rioters say otherwise, or are you going to claim that they are whites in blackface doing the rioting, looting, vandalism, and burning?
Antifa, and before that, Occupy Wallstreet have done considerable damage to our country affecting people of all colors just trying to make a living with a little shop, only to see their life savings wiped out.
The Democrats are one election away from turning our country into another Venezuela. We would be there now if it were not for Trump stepping in to make our country great again, in spite of the enemy within. They are legion.
Sorry about the beer. And I did it, in true FR style, by commenting only on the headline!
In my opinion, NR was over-rated even when it was good, and about two decades past its best-before date.
Rush is no Bill Buckley, and in my opinion, that is a good thing.
(In the interest of full disclosure, I post a link to the Cayuga Waiters . . . and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7Rjk1WGHp8 Hold on to your next beer . . . I did go to Cornell)
How is Antifa at its core any different than the KKK? Both groups are predominantly men who have strongly held beliefs and wish do violence to further their cause. Both hide their identities behind masks and cloaks. Both operate in politically safe sanctuaries. Antifa operates in Democratically controlled areas such as Portland and Seattle where their identities are protected and the Courts are friendly. The KKK at its peak operated in the South where the political establishment was friendly. Both groups drew its membership from a broad cross section of society.
If the FBI is serious about stopping Antifa, just the threat of exposing the members and making their identities public knowledge will considerably weaken the organization. Eventually the KKK disappeared from American life because anyone identified as a member, with a few notable exceptions, lost standing in their communities and lost access to professional lives and jobs. Antifa members fear being identified and exposed.
“Theres not going to be an election at this rate.”
LOL, really...no election?
Does that mean Trump remains as president?
The stories that make the distinction say that he will designate them a domestic terrorist organization, which they certainly are. They will join E.L.F., various Christian Identity organizations, at least one anti-abortion organization, Marxist organizations, white and black supremacist organizations in the designation of domestic terrorist organizations.
Thanks for not reading the article.
Andrew McCarthy is completely ignoring the fact that Antifa is a terrorist organization. Telling the truth is a good move, at least for our side.
The Democrats are an organized criminal gang, there's no doubt.
There is still a difference between foreign and domestic terrorist organizations, though the article seems to argue against the foreign designation as a red herring.
Andrew McCarthy needs to pull up his big girl underwear see this for what it IS
The idea that Democrats won’t appropriate any powers that a Republican doesn’t first is fallacious.
“the Tea Party was a terrorist organization...
How about the NRA?
See...it can be a slippery slope.”
I, for one, am sick and tired of playing the “if we be nice to them, perhaps they will be nice to us game.”
They have proven time and time again that they will just take ground and stay on offensive. The only thing a bully understands is getting punched in the face.
No. States rights is not going to do this.

The right doesnt urn down cities and assault law officers.
.Gov already seems to have enough laws on the books to handle the situation. Part of the problem isn’t new orders or laws, but enforcing current ones. If someone breaks the law, go after them. Selective enforcement and abuse by .gov is played out every night on tv as of late.
