Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) have introduced a resolution to name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization as the group continues to act violently against journalists and law enforcement officials.
Cruz and Cassidy introduced a resolution last week that would name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization, echoing the sentiments of thousands of Americans who have been horrified to see the terrible display of violence, destruction, persecution, and mayhem wrought at the hands of the supposedly “anti-fascist” group.
On Twitter, Cruz wrote “Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence.” He added, “Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views.”
In a press release on Cassidy’s website, he is quoted as saying that “Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege.” He went on, “Bullies get their way until someone says no. Elected officials must have courage, not cowardice, to prevent terror.”
Possibly influencing this resolution, tens of thousands of Americans have signed a White House petition calling for Antifa to be declared a domestic terrorist organization by President Donald Trump and his administration.
A petition for President Donald Trump to label Antifa a domestic terrorist group, originally launched in the wake of the beating of journalist Andy Ngo at the hands of Antifa, has now swelled to nearly 40,000 signatures following the Antifa terrorist attack on a migrant detention facility in Tacoma, Washington.
Recent public relations disasters dealt to Antifa by their own actions appear to be catching up to the organization as the petition to label it a domestic terrorist group continues to gain signatures. At press time, the petition has over 38,000 signatures and is growing.
The petition originally started in the days following the brutal beating suffered by Ngo at the hands of Antifa while covering their counter protest in Portland, Oregon. While the signatures seemed to slow down, last weekend’s Antifa terrorist attack on a migrant detention center, in which a 69-year-old man armed with an AR-15 and Molotov cocktails fire bombed the facility and ultimately died, seems to have reignited the fire under the petition.
Big League Politics contacted Sen. Cruz’s office for a comment on this resolution and did not receive an immediate response, and will update this article if it hears from either senator.
10 Charged with Burglary in Looting of Milwaukee Sneaker Store
Damages to the business are estimated at around $600,000.
Ten people have been arrested and charged in the mass looting of a Milwaukee sneaker store, which occurred in the wake of the nationwide race riots sweeping across the country in response to the death of George Floyd.
Nine men and one woman have been charged with burglary of a building for their role in the May 25th looting.
The accused are, with respective charges:
-Terry Gilbert, 26, burglary-building or dwelling
-Lamont Nelson, 48, burglary-building or dwelling
-Samuel Daniels, 18, burglary-building or dwelling
-Desmond Givens, 18, burglary-building or dwelling, identity theft-obtain money or credit
-Marcus Coleman, 31, burglary-building or dwelling
-Isaiah Allen, 26, burglary-building or dwelling
-Octavian Miller, 26, burglary-building or dwelling, as party to a crime
-Jerry Burks, 25, burglary-building or dwelling
-Marissa Jones, 19, burglary-building or dwelling
-Amondre Brooks, 18, burglary-building or dwelling, as party to a crime
Surveillance camera footage reveals a mob of looters swarming the shoe store, Trend Benderz, and clearing out the establishment’s inventory of sneakers.
“Everything here was full. Everything has been taken out. All my tables are empty,” said Sam Ramahi, the owner of the business. “So far, we are estimating damage with inventory anywhere between $600,000 to $700,000.” Ramahi states that it only took the mob of looters 15 minutes to completely clear out the store’s inventory.
Reporting from Fox 32 Milwaukee indicates that at least one federal police officer observed the mob of looters descending upon the business, but the crowd was too big for the area law enforcement to prevent the mass theft from the business.
Prosecutors that have filed criminal charges in the case are accusing at least two of the suspected looters of targeting another area business, and at least one other had recently been released from prison.
It remains to be seen how the fast grab of expensive Nikes will secure justice for Floyd.
