Anyone know how designating Antifa a terrorist group makes any difference? What would that allow the feds to do that they couldn’t before?

If Trump follows through, when the Dems get back in control they might use the government against our ideological groups, like using the IRS against them, or maybe even spy on them. Who knows maybe they will try to take down a president using these means.

All it means is that the Feds can commit "More Resources" towards "combating" ANTIFA.

But I don't think it will make a bit of difference.

We branded the Mexican drug cartels as "terrorist organizations."

Those cartels are doing just fine.

Ultra-Left cities such as San Francisco branded the NRA as a terrorist organization (which is laughable, but they did).

At the end of the day, Barr and his Dept of Injustice won't do a damn thing to bring these criminals to justice.

He'll flap his gums, but that's about it.

Association to ANTIFA once suspected or proven, automatically gives probable cause to investigate and crack open their life. That is uniform across the entire LEO spectrum, local/state/federal.

From a DoD perspective to collect and retain information on a US person, there has to be an exemption. Terrorism is one of the exemptions. When the National Guard is federalized, they go by DoD authorities, not their states.

I used to work counter IED network issues for Uncle Sugar and Intelligence Oversight is a big deal in that area.
