A petition to name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization is gaining momentum as the fallout from last weekend’s violence continues to be exposed on social media.
The petition, “Demand President Trump label Antifa a domestic terrorist organization” is growing quickly in the days following the unprecedented violence in Portland, Oregon that saw journalist Andy Ngo brutally beaten and attacked with quick cement milkshakes and an elderly man’s skull fractured during an attack with a metal pipe.
After 24 hours, the petition reached 20,000 signatures, and currently sits at just under 25,000.
Big League Politics was the first major outlet to report on the petition, launched by Demand Free Speech rally co-organizer Enrique Tarrio:
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.”
“We need President Trump’s support. We have to end the madness.”
During the days following the outburst in violence, which has been dubbed the Antifa riot on Twitter, the Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler attempted to protect Antifa from blame by refusing to name the violent group in his remarks posted to Facebook and Twitter.
At the same time, the Portland Police Association attempted to levy equal blame to Antifa and the Proud Boys, despite video evidence showing the Proud Boys were at least a 30 minute walk away from the area where Ngo was attacked.
Video and a march route provided to Big League Politics by Proud Boys Elder Joshua Hall reveals that the Proud Boys were at least a 30 minute walk away from the location where Ngo was attacked over the weekend, contradicting claims from the Portland Police Association that the organization was somehow implicated in the violence.
The official statement, posted to the Association’s Facebook Page, exlaimed that “It’s time for our Mayor to do two things: tell both ANTIFA and Proud Boys that our City will not accept violence in our City and remove the handcuffs from our officers and let them stop the violence through strong and swift enforcement action.”
It appears the Portland Police Association did, however, attempt to levy the majority of the blame against Antifa. The statement read, “If this violence had been directed at Antifa, there would have been an immediate call for an independent, outside investigation.”
It remains to be seen if President Donald Trump, who has previously denounced Antifa in 2017 and 2018, will act against the violent leftist group.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters
Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.
A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.
Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.
Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.
A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.
Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.
Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.
McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
