Reps. Dan Donovan and King of New York, Ted Budd of North Carolina and Paul Gosar of Arizona, introduced a Congressional bill in June, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.
“My bill expands upon long-standing civil rights statutes to make it a crime to deprive someone of Constitutionally-guaranteed protections while masked or disguised. Americans have the natural right to speak and protest freely; it is not a right to throw Molotov cocktails and beat people while hiding behind a mask,” said Congressman Donovan.
“The bill adds a penalty for wearing a mask while committing crimes that have been against federal law for decades,” Donovan’s office told Big League Politics.
The bill text itself also makes it clear that the simple act of wearing a mask doesn’t trigger a potential heightened criminal prison sentence.
The bill reads: whoever “while in disguise, including wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens or intimidates any person…in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured him by the Constitution…”
The “injuries, oppresses, threatens or intimidates” language comes directly from existing federal civil rights statutes dating from 1948.
PURPOSE OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BILL
“To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide penalty enhancements for committing certain offenses while in disguise, and for other purposes,” according to the text of the Bill.
LIKE THE UNMASKED KKK
The great irony about a law designed to unmask antifa is that of the 18 states that have anti-masking laws, the majority were written into law in the mid-20th century to unmask the KKK.

Donovan’s office provided Big League Politics with the following information:
“UNMASKING ANTIFA ACT” FACT SHEET
“People put on the masks so that we can all become anonymous, right? And then, therefore, we are able to move more freely and do what we need to do, whether it is illegal or not,” he said. (Scott Crow, part of antifa movement, to CNN)
- The Unmasking Antifa Act makes it a crime to interfere with protected rights while in disguise.
o Antifa and other groups have used masks to hide their identities while trying to prevent a person from exercising his/her Constitutionally-protected rights.
o The bill applies to any and all groups that deprive people from exercising their Constitutionally-protected rights.
o Some States, including Louisiana, New York, and Minnesota, have some form of the statute that either enhances penalties for those that commit a crime while wearing a mask or bans the wearing of a disguise in public.
o The bill does not impose a mandatory minimum. It increases the maximum penalty from 10 years to 15 years if crimes covered in existing civil rights statutes are committed under cover of mask or disguise.
- The language in the bill mirrors federal civil rights statutes (Title 18 U.S.C. Sec. 241), which prohibit “two or more persons [from conspiring] to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution…”
o According to the Department of Justice, the “offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term or the death penalty.”
- Recent violent acts by masked protestors reinforce the need for this bill:
o February 2017, Berkeley: “Black-clad protesters wearing masks threw Molotov cocktails and smashed windows at the student union center where the Yiannopoulos event was to be held.”
o June 2017, Portland Oregon: police detained a group of masked Antifa activists and seized a “large number of weapons”
o June 2017, Sacramento: 7 were stabbed in the clash between white supremacists and counter-protestors. “Many of the counter-protesters wore masks, making them difficult to identify on video by law enforcement.”
o August 2017, Berkeley: “Some anti-fascist protesters, wearing black and with their faces covered, chased or beat Trump supporters and organizers who had scheduled and then canceled the ‘anti-Marxist’ rally, citing concerns over safety.”
- August 2017, Berkeley: video of four masked protestors kicking, punching, and beating with a stick a man lying on the ground trying to shield himself from the attack.
- August 2017, Berkeley: video of masked mob chasing and beating a victim in the street.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center:
“At least 18 states have “anti-masking” laws that make it a crime to wear a mask in public. Most of the laws were passed between the 1920s and the 1950s, in reaction to waves of violence perpetrated by the Klan.
Public officials argued that the laws were needed to protect the public from Klan intimidation and violence and that banning masks would aid law enforcement in identifying criminals,” they wrote.
“Over the past few years, there have been multiple events that show the need for this legislation. The Constitution was written to protect our rights – one of those being the right to free speech. Violent protesters who hide behind their masks and deprive others of their protected rights should be prosecuted, and that’s exactly what this bill would do,” said Ted Budd, member of the House Freedom Caucus, told Big League Politics.
What is good enough for the KKK is good enough for Antifa.
Facebook Allows ANTIFA-Style Group to Organize a ‘White House Siege’ on Their Platform
This is what they allow while censoring conservatives.
The tech giant Facebook is allowing an ANTIFA-style group to organize a potentially violent “White House siege” next month on their platform.
“On September 17, 2020, we will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain it for exactly fifty days. This is the #WhiteHouseSiege,” the group Adbusters wrote to advertise their event on their Facebook page. “We need your voice of wisdom and expertise to pull off a radically democratic toneshift in our politics.”
They boast that their extremist display will bring about a New World Order, a common goal for leftists and authoritarians who want to destroy the U.S. Constitution and national sovereignty throughout the globe.
“#WhiteHouseSiege will electrify the U.S. election season — and it doesn’t stop there. Drawing wind from #MeToo, #BLM, #ExtinctionRebellion, and protests against Trump’s lethal bungling of coronavirus, we’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a new world order,” Adbusters wrote.
On their official website, Adbusters talks about their plan to re-launch the Occupy Wall Street movement, which ultimately fizzled out after being pushed by the liberal media and Obama administration nine years ago. There were reports of widespread rapes, violence and degeneracy at the various encampments.
“The Occupy anniversary arrives September 17th, 2020. And it may be the perfect day to trigger another global big-bang moment — a massive collective action of the sweetest kind of disobedience,” Adbusters wrote.
They hope that their siege of the White House lasts all the way up until election day. They hope that their sustained campaign of left-wing agitation can put Democrats back into power.
“A siege only works if it is sustained. We witnessed this — the multiplying power of a strategic occupation — nine years ago. You dig in, hold your ground, and the tension accumulates, amplifies, goes global,” Adbusters wrote.
On Monday, Big League Politics reported about a terrorist assassin who allegedly tried to storm the White House to take out President Trump:
President Donald Trump was forced to abruptly postpone his press conference today after an armed gunman stormed the White House and was reportedly shot by Secret Service agents.
Trump was taken to the Oval Office until the threat could be neutralized. After the situation was deemed safe, Trump resumed his press briefing and addressed the situation.
“There was a shooting, law enforcement shot someone, seems to be someone, and the suspect is on the way to the hospital,” Trump said.
“It’s unfortunate that this is the world but the world has always been a dangerous place. It’s not something that’s unique,” he added.
Trump refused to ascribe a motive to the shooter, saying that “it might not have had anything to do with me.” He added that he “didn’t even think about not coming back” to the press conference due to fear. The president described what it was like when the secret service official notified him of the threat.
“Just told me when he came up, you pretty much saw it like I did. He said, ‘Sir, could you please come with me?’ So, you were surprised. I was surprised, also. I think it’s probably it’s pretty unusual but very, very professional people, they all do a fantastic job, as you know,” he said.
Groups like Adbusters need to be targeted under federal RICO laws or under the federal War on Terror. These domestic enemies are far more dangerous to the U.S. Republic than ISIS could ever hope to be.
