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.
MURDEROUS: Lincoln Project Dip Steve Schmidt Demands “Q” Shaman be Shot
This is real incitement of violence.
Lincoln Project dip Steve Schmidt called for a summary execution of the so-called “Q Shaman” during a television appearance with Bill Maher on Friday night, showing a lust for blood that was heartily applauded by Maher’s establishment NPC audience.
“A guy bursts in, the QAnon shaman, dressed like a viking… And [the Capitol police officer] basically talks to him. Shoot him. Shoot him! If you burst into the United States Capitol… If he were dressed like Bin Laden, would you have shot him?”
Video of the interaction Schmidt references reveals the Arizona man merely walking around the Senate chamber as a Capitol Police officer asks him to leave. Jake Chansley has since maintained that he merely walked into an open door at the Capitol, having been charged with unlawfully entering a federal building.

Schmidt’s standard for using lethal force defies any professional standard of law enforcement conduct in the United States, and might be more commonly used in Syria or Somalia. Law enforcement, be it Capitol Police or otherwise, are not trained to summarily execute trespassers who enter federal buildings unlawfully and saunter around, even if the venue in question is the US Capitol.
The protestor in question has since gone on to betray Donald Trump, even offering to testify at a Democratic impeachment sham trial on the side of the pro-impeachment leftists. There’s ample reason to believe he’s more of a lifestyle cosplayer than a hardened criminal, and his bumbling trespassing during the January 6th event reflected as such. An extrajudicial execution of the conspiracy theorist would’ve been a heinous outrage- and the second killing of an unarmed riotous protestor under highly questionable circumstances.
Schmidt’s appearance on HBO came just hours after he resigned from the Lincoln Project, with the neocon group reeling in the wake of founder John Weaver’s pedophilia and grooming scandal. It appears that actually inciting violence- against a protestor who was non-violent- is Schmidt’s tactic to try and get back into the good graces of programmed liberals.
