    Right to protest? We crack on china :

    With curfews and police shooting people with tear gas in their own home the terrorist organization is looking like the police force. These police tough guys here would have been gassing tienamen square the first night.

    And now all the sudden just like that anyone peacfully protesting is antifa or a thug.

    Trump has done a nice job this week attacking first amendment-

    1- attacking freedom of assembly with blanket call of protesters as antifa

    2 - attacking 1st amendment freedom of speech/ attacking press attacking social media for his lying.

    All in a week
    Antifa is a made up boogey man and is desperate move to squeeze one or two more votes out of the base.

    You guys thought the reality show was bad? This is what desperation looks like and wondering when they will burn the reichstag. This is crazy like watching a remake of 1933..

    next is the reichstag fire decree err antifa decree. Here is how it reads:
    "
    The antifa decree permits the regime to arrest and incarcerate political opponents without specific charge, dissolve political organizations, and to suppress publications. It also gives the central government the authority to overrule state and local laws and overthrow state and local governments.
    "

    everything you did has already been done this is all straight from the playbook folks

    Its eery how step by step it is. When romney goes missing thats when you will know its too late.

    Sounds like trump and barr should focus on creating a domestic terror bill for congress to debate... oh wait, that would be within the law, would require congress to agree, and most important would involve proof.

    Trump says he's naming antifa a 'Terrorist Organization.' Can he do that?
    For one thing, the president lacks the legal authority to designate a purely domestic group.

    Right-wing terrorism is on the rise in the United States and across Europe. In the United States, right-wing extremists were responsible for nearly 50 killings in 2018, a 26 percent increase over the previous year. According to the Anti-Defamation League’s latest report, 2018 was the fourth-deadliest year for domestic extremist-related killings since 1970 and of those attacks, right-wing extremists were responsible for almost 78 percent. In Europe, the story is just as grim, with attacks by right-wing groups increasing 43 percent between 2016 and 2017. According to the 2018 European Union Terrorism Situation and Trend Report, right-wing extremism is continuing to expand.

    Violence committed by right-wing extremists continues to account for most domestic terrorism in the United States, as opposed to left-wing violence, which only accounted for 3.2 percent of all domestic terrorism between 2009 and 2018.

    Within the United States, violent extremism driven by right-wing, racially motivated ideologies is growing at an alarming pace, but neither public understanding nor government action has kept pace to combat it. Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, correctly observed:

    It’s time for our nation’s leaders to appropriately recognize the severity of the threat and to devote the necessary resources to address the scourge of right-wing extremism.

    Any effort to take up Greenblatt’s challenge requires a serious strategy. The Trump administration must acknowledge the threat and reverse course from a policy of ignoring all but Islamic extremism. It needs to understand how overheated rhetoric—including the president’s own words—can lead to violence. Fortunately, these threats have been defeated before; a wise administration would seek to learn the lessons from previous efforts—in the United States and abroad—to combat far-right extremist violence. Until it does so, the danger will only increase.

    The murder of 11 Jewish worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh more than four months ago was the most deadly U.S. domestic extremist attack since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, but it was far from an isolated incident. The University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database showed that, from 2010 to 2016, right-wing inspired terrorist acts in the United States have grown from 6 percent of total domestic terror attacks to 35 percent. The Anti-Defamation League’s report, “A Dark and Constant Rage,” catalogued 150 right-wing attacks from 1993 to 2017, noting that “right-wing extremists have been one of the largest and most consistent sources of domestic terror incidents in the United States for many years.” The Center for Strategic and International Studies also reported that, between 2016 and 2017 alone, right-wing inspired violence had quadrupled in the United States.

    In the latest example, Christopher Hasson—a self-described white nationalist Coast Guard officer—was arrested in February for planning attacks on a target list of prominent Democratic politicians and cable news journalists. For at least two years, Lt. Hasson visited white supremacist and neo-Nazi websites; researched biological weapons and improvised explosives; and studied far-right extremist manifestos. Hasson’s arrest came only a few months after white nationalist Robert Bowers murdered 11 people and injured 7 more at the shooting inside the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, an attack that appears to have been motivated by anti-Semitism and inspired by his extensive involvement in white supremacist and alt-right online networks. From the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally in August 2017 to Cesar Sayoc’s attempted mail bomb attacks on several of President Donald Trump’s most prominent critics, the spread of far-right ideology is inspiring an increasing number of violent attacks that put the safety of Americans at risk.

    Almost nobody is in danger from Antifa. They simply aren't a threat to the general population.

    White supremacists have only killed 36 people over the last 8 years? Actually a lot better than I thought it would be.
