Democrats in the Senate are reportedly refusing to condemn the violence caused by Antifa, enabling the terrorist group to continue its planned destruction of America.
According to The Daily Caller, who contacted every Senate Democrat asking if they would consider legislation to officially label Antifa as a terrorist organization, the Dems. have been eerily silent on the matter.
In 2019 Republican Sen. Ted Cruz introduced legislation to officially label Antifa as a terrorist org. when asked about the Democrats silence on the matter Cruz said, “It’s disgraceful that not a single Democrat has the courage to acknowledge an obvious fact: that Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization.”
“Antifa members are rioting and looting in cities all across the United States, and every Democrat pretending otherwise is grossly violating his or her obligation to serve the people of this country. We need to stop the violence, end the riots, keep people safe, and call out Antifa members for the terrorists they are,” Cruz continued.
Earlier in the week Senator Cruz also laid into Antifa “Let’s be clear, these Antifa protesters that are organizing these acts of terror, among other things, they are behaving in a profoundly racist manner.”
Cruz added that he was “glad the president led by going to St. John’s Church,” which was set on fire by rioters Monday. “It was important for the president to be there and say we will not be cowed by terrorists.”
Republican Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler co-sponsored the legislation and when asked about whether or not she believes the Democrats would even consider it she said, “I would hope that they would because what we need to do is protect the rights of those who want to peacefully protest, and this chaos and violence and the loss of life, two officers, is preventing peaceful protests and those voices being heard, so I hope there would be Democrats that would champion the right of peaceful protests.”
The Department of Justice announced on Thursday that it has evidence that Antifa and other similar groups have been behind the recent riots in order to fuel their own violent agenda, according to Attorney General William Barr.
Barr told reporters at a presser that there are “three different sets of actors” involved, including peaceful demonstrators, opportunistic looters, and extremist agitators. Foreign actors have also played a role in the violence, he said.
“We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups, as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions, have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity,” he said. “We are also seeing foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.”
Antifa is a loosely organized network of anarchists and communists that have been responsible for violence at dozens of protests in recent years. The group reportedly receives funding from far-left Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros through his Open Society Foundation.
A recent release of undercover footage by Investigative journalist group Project Veritas shows the disturbing innerworkings of the ultra-secretive Rose City Antifa group in Portland, Oregon. The video shows Antifa members promoting violence and teaching combat techniques.
The footage was released on Thursday morning and reveals that Project Veritas, led by investigative journalist James O’Keefe, had infiltrated Rose City Antifa (RCA) through an unnamed individual who had taken undercover footage of the violent group’s ultra-secretive meetings.
Based in the city of Portland, RCA has become well-known as one of the most violent cells of Antifa in the United States.
In one of the clips, a man identified as Nicholas Cifuni states that RCA members needed to hide their weapons from the police saying, “don’t be that fucking guy with the goddamn spike brass knuckles getting photos taken of you.”
“Police are going to be like, ‘perfect we can prosecute these fuckers, look how violent they are,’ and not that we aren’t, but we need to fucking hide that shit,” he says.
“Practice things like an eye gouge, it takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” the man continues. “It’s not boxing, it’s not kickboxing, it’s like destroying your enemy.”
The undercover operative described this as part of the onboarding process for the terror group, saying that this video was shot when he was thought to be a “prospect.”
He added that RCA enforced strict security measures, such as placing their phones in a neighboring bathroom with a fan that muffles sounds during meetings to prevent surveillance.
The source went on to show the vigorous security precautions deployed by the group upon their first meeting, remarking, “they were getting this tradecraft from someone else, someone with much more experience, someone who did this for a living.”
