On Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump tweeted his support for naming the radical left wing Antifa an “organization of terror”, something Congress and concerned United States citizens have been begging the administration to do for months.
President Trump took to Twitter to call for naming Antifa a terrorist organization on Saturday afternoon, writing that “Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others.”
The president added that such a move “Would make it easier for police to do their job!”

In the aftermath of the brutal beating of journalist Andy Ngo by Antifa in Portland, Oregon that left him hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage, Americans took to the official White House petition website to call for Antifa to be named a domestic terrorist organization, begging President Trump for relief.
After the devastating Antifa attack on Andy Nego, an independent journalist who sustained severe injuries including a brain hemorrhage while covering a violent protest in Portland, Oregon, threats from Antifa to attack the Demand Free Speech rally in Washington, D.C. with acid, and a newly surfaced video showing Antifa members chanting “Allahu akbar, smash these Nazi scum” in 2017, a petition has been launched to label Antifa a terrorist organization.
The petition comes after a wave of Antifa violence and threats struck the nation this weekend. Enrique Tarrio, the co-organizer of the Demand Free Speech rally threatened with an acid attack, started the petition after the violent weekend.
“After the attack on Andy in Oregon, the threat of an acid attack against our Demand Free Speech rally, and years of violence, it’s time for the federal government to step in,” said Tarrio. “DHS must declare Antifa a terrorist organization.”
At press time, the petition has over 40,000 signatures.
The move also comes after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has made it known he believes Antifa must be considered a terrorist organization, and urged FBI Director Christopher Wray to launch a RICO investigation into the organization.
Cruz started by coauthoring a resolution that would name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization, as Big League Politics reported:
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.”
He went on to demand Wray launch a RICO investigation into the militant left-wing organization.
Just this week, a video surfaced of a member of Antifa praising the Antifa terrorist attack against a Tacoma, Washington migrant detention facility, in which a radical leftist armed with an AR-15 rifle and Molotov cocktails firebombed the facility.
The Antifa member praised the terrorist, and called for many more instances of terrorism:
“I want to take a moment to give a tribute to Willem Van Spronsen,” said Szabo. “I’m just gonna say it, I think you’re a hero. I don’t care what you say, I think they’re a hero, and if you disagree with me, you’re f**king wrong.”
Szabo continued, “There are many incidents in history where people have taken radical positions and I have agreed with them, but this is the one time in my life time when I have seen someone take a radical stance where they put their life on the line, they fought for something selfless, and they died for it.”
The video then takes an even darker turn, as Szabo stresses the need for more domestic terrorist attacks.
“It’s something that we, on the left, should resonate with. Not just resonate with, but repeat. Not just repeat, you have to understand, this is just one individual, his death cannot go in vain, we need multiple individuals. We need multiple of these instances to happen.”
It appears this pattern of radical, violent behavior and speech advocating such behavior may finally have pushed the Trump administration to act against the radical organization. It only remains to be seen how President Trump will move against Antifa.
WATCH: Portland ANTIFA Deploys Incendiary Device Directly Against Portland Police in Nightly Riot
This is terrorism.
An ANTIFA militant threw an incendiary device directly at officers of the Portland Police Bureau during a Breonna Taylor riot in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday night.
The device, which may have been a molotov cocktail, caused a considerable fire right next to a formation of marching officers.

The considerably large fire set by the device is quickly extinguished by an officer carrying a fire extinguisher.
This could’ve easily killed someone. Portland ANTIFA elevated its level of agitation and violence on Wednesday night, largely aware that they can act with impunity without fear of consequences from Portland’s neutered police department, complicit prosecutor, and clueless mayor.
Another view of the attack shows just how dangerous the de facto grenade was to the public and to law enforcement. This was an act of terrorism and attempted murder.
Another angle. That person was clearly aiming the Molotov cocktail at police officers. Attempted murder. pic.twitter.com/SE0mWsZ2Aa

The individual who threw the incendiary device was wearing a mask, and runs off on the video footage of the attack. It’s unclear if the Portland Police Bureau arrested them for the criminal act, but he or she could be charged with a range of felony offenses as severe as attempted murder.
The demonstration was declared and riot and dispersed shortly after the attack. It’s likely Portland ANTIFA will continue street havoc in full force this weekend, with the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision(all the way across the country in Kentucky) potentially inspiring the most dangerous street riots in Portland since the organized criminal behavior began more than three months ago.
An Oregon man used a molotov cocktail device in an attempt to start a wildfire in the already devastated state earlier this week. Firefighters have been combating some of the most destructive fires in recent history in Oregon and California, and one man charged with starting them is a longtime left-wing activist with a criminal record of riot violations.
