After googling fruitlessly for about 10 minutes for obama's stance on antifa and not being able to find anything I stumbled across the actual bill where the obama administration declared antifa a terrorist group in early 2016.




Whereas, in early 2016, the Department of Homeland Security under the President Obama administration formally labeled Antifa efforts as domestic terrorist violence.;

No you didn't. You stumbled on a 2017 bill, from the Trump Administration, that suggests that the Obama Administration labeled "Antifa" a terrorist group. It didn't, and their statement is disingenuous. What the Obama Administration did do is label certain left wing anti-fascist groups domestic terrorists. There is no "Antifa" group.

It doesn't matter when any one labels them.
Nobody needs to be told.
People have eyes, they can see what they are doing, and come to their own conclusions.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then Antifa is a terrorist group.

Period.

ah, okay.


Here is the intro to H Resolution 536


Expressing support for the HHT Foundation International’s designation of a National Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) Month and supporting efforts to educate the public about HHT.

Whereas HHT, also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome, is a complex genetic blood vessel disorder characterized by telangiectases and artery-vein malformations that occur in major organs, including the lungs, brain, and liver, as well as the nasal mucosa, mouth, gastrointestinal tract, and skin of the face and hands;

www.govtrack.us...

Nothing about Antifa in there.

ETA: You link takes us to H.Res.536 — 116th Congress (2019-2020)...The Trump Administration, not the Obama Administration.

It doesn't look as though this resolution was ever officially adopted.

well, it's still true that the resolution of:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) strongly condemns the violent actions of Antifa;

(2) recognizes that Antifa engages in domestic terrorism; and

(3) urges the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by this extremist movement.

from a House with a democratic majority

There is no Antifa, only boogaloo. There is no Antifa, only boogaloo.

Say it with me boys and girls, make it true!

There is no Antifa, only boogaloo. There is no Antifa, only boogaloo.

Now huff your jenkem three times and repeat the magic words!

Antifa is not an organized group. There are plenty of organized left wing anti-fascist groups that commit acts of domestic terrorism. But "ANTIFA" is just a catch all term for anyone who is anti-fascist. Not everyone who identifies as anti fascist expresses their concerns with violence.

It's cool. And it's still worth discussing how the government labels and deals with domestic terrorism. Both left and right extremes are guilty of domestic terrorism. I can remember PETA sinking ships and environmental groups setting housing developments under construction on fire.

If there's no ANTIFA, why do ANTIFA members carry ANTIFA flags ?

I dunno though...


from 2017:

thehill.com...

www.newsweek.com...

I think it checks out.

from the article:


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has formally classified the activities of anti-fascist groups (antifa) as "domestic terrorist violence" since early 2016, according to confidential law enforcement documents obtained by Politico and interviews.

so, what, if they did then it's confidential? LOL

and really the point wasnt anything to do with the Trump administration. Im just kind of new to posting. The post has more to do with the DHS than congress. Many credible sources say the DHS in early 2016 labeled or warned of them as a domestic terror violence threat. If newsweek, the hill, politico, etc are credible to you. Googling it brings up so many many many articles from 2016-2017

Somehow they just manage to show up at the same places at the same time, they have food and medical tents, different people for different tasks, because they aren't a group.

Not everybody who identifies as a white supremacist expresses their concerns with violence either. I expect you'll be defending them soon.

Antifa is Boogaloo.

Boogaloo is Antifa.

Boogaloo is a fictitious group created by Antifa cowards.
