Mayor of Berkeley Jesse Arreguin on Monday said it is time to confront the violent extremism on the left by treating black-clad Antifa protesters as a gang





Looks like genius strategist Pelosi got another one wrong by not speaking out against Antifa soon enough. It took a lowly Mayor, of the most liberal kind from Berkeley, to say they had enough with violent Left group Antifa.

Although wanting to classify them as a "gang" is a good start, they are politically motivated which is not a "gang", they are domestic terrorists.

Yay words ! ?

Doesn't matter.

Bloods, Crips, MS13 and so on, can still gather and walk around and cause drama.

I guess good on this mayor, but it wont change anything.

The same Mayor who supported BAMN? Maybe he is getting nervous, but when I saw his LEO's abandon ship on Sunday, I think he is just doing the typical political CYA.

Let's see what he does in the future to see if he is telling the truth or not.

Think they are classified more as a hate group, which they should be.

Gangs tend to be all inclusive of race,

In light of this I'd like to recommend that Antifa takes a group holiday to Sinaloa, Mexico.

I hear the cartels are always happy to engage in a little healthy competition.

Be leery of how giddy and gleeful you are about this. The political pendulum always swings back eventually. It may be 4 years, it may be 20, it may be 50. But eventually the chances are really high that what you support, groups you belong to or even websites you frequent, will be enough cause to label you a gang member or terrorist or a supporter thereof. Advocating for labeling extreme ideologies eventually backfires on everyone who proposes it. Let people exercise their rights to out their stupidity publicly and if individuals initiate violence, go after the individuals who commit those acts, hide them and support them afterward or give the marching orders.

This is as dumb as the concept of a "hate" crime. Any violent assault, murder etc... stems from some sort of hatred and doesn't need an additional label to add prison time to it. Crimes are crimes. Arrest, try and sentence people accordingly. Utilizing sweeping brush strokes against any group is senseless and creates even further contrasting divides in a country that is already critically partisan benefits nobody except the for profit judicial system and you support feeding it relentlessly it would seem. Especially when geared towards a loosely affiliated group like AntiFa with no centralized leadership. At the end of the day, you're the one who has to pick your battles. I just think you're picking a little too gleefully without a proper appreciation for trhge cyclical natrure of history.

Are they an organized group of criminals? Is their activities criminal or just clown like motions. Has Antifa been involved with criminal activities such as restricting other's 1st amendment rights, violence, rioting etc?

Transgendered?
I doubt it.

Interacial? Yes.

In LA, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, St. Louis, and on and on and on..

Vicelords
Gangster Disciples
Latin Kings

Maybe not so much MS-13 though.
