The petition to declare AntiFa a terrorist organization has exploded online. It’s posted on the government website and is up to over 254,000 signatures. At 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House is supposed to respond, but most go unanswered.
The petition was only created on August 17th by M.A.
The petition states:
Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare AntiFa a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.
AntiFa is, by their own description an “anarcho-communist” organization. They are a paramilitary branch of communism bringing “peace through violence.”
