Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) requested FBI Director Christopher Wray begin a RICO investigation into Antifa, citing its violent action in Portland, Oregon that saw journalist Andy Ngo hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage and the recent Antifa domestic terrorist attack in Tacoma, Washington in which a member of Antifa attacked a migrant detention facility armed with an AR-15 rifle and Molotov cocktails.
Cruz is one of the only members of Congress who are actively calling for investigations into Antifa, and he doubled down on his position when questioning Wray earlier today.
“Let me turn to a final topic, which is an area of concern for me, which is a group that has called itself Antifa, which ironically is short for anti fascism, and yet they engage in the conduct of fascists,” said Cruz. “They engage in violent protests, masked men and women engaging in physical violence. We saw recently the Rose City chapter of Antifa in Portland Oregon that was assaulting citizens and disrupting traffic, violently assaulted one journalist so severely that he was hospitalized for brain hemorrhage.”
Cruz then spoke of the Tacoma terrorist attack.
“Another Antifa terrorist attacked a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement center in Tacoma, Washington igniting a vehicle and attempting to ignite a propane tank,” said Cruz.
Cruz then explained that he believes this is not mere happenstance, but that he is concerned it may be part of organized behavior on behalf of Antifa, and put the question to Wray.
“I am concerned that these are not isolated incidents but rather this is a pattern, an organization that is engaged in masked, anonymous, violent terrorism. To what extent is the FBI concerned about the threat of violent activity from an organization like Antifa?”

In his characteristic fashion, Wray seemed to minimize the behavior of Antifa and the role of the organization.
“We are absolutely concerned about violence committed on behalf of any ideology, any extremism, and the key is though,” Wray continued, “The FBI does not investigate ideology, we investigate violent criminal activity, and if it’s fueled by some ideology, then that’s how it gets wrapped into our mandate.”
Wray went on to explain that the Antifa group, in the eyes of the FBI, is an ideology and not a radical group of terrorists pledging to commit violence.
“So for us, Antifa, we view it more of an ideology than an organization. We have quite a number though, I should tell you, of properly predicated investigations of what we categorize as anarchist extremists,” Wray continued, “And some of those people do subscribe to what we would refer to as kind of an Antifa-like ideology.”
Cruz then stressed that he views Antifa as an organization, and informed Wray that he will be sending him a letter requesting a RICO investigation into the group.
“I will today be sending a letter to you and the Department of Justice asking the department to open a RICO investigation into Antifa because I believe they ar engaged in a similar coordinated effort,” said Cruz, comparing Antifa to the mafia and the Ku Klux Klan.
Cruz also blasted politicians who have repeatedly sided with Antifa and forced police departments to stand down when faced with their violence.
“It’s a pattern, sadly, that we saw, we have seen with politicians who favored Klan violence, and I think every citizen deserves law enforcement protection regardless of their ideology.”
California City Manager Posts ‘Chickens Have Come Home to Roost’ in Response to Execution Style Shooting of Two Police Officers
This is sickening.
Lynwood, Calif. city manager Jose Ometeotl posted that the “chickens have come to roost” on his Instagram account after two law enforcement officers were shot execution style in the head by a currently unidentified assailant over the weekend in Compton.
Ometeotl wrote that “the shooting of anyone is a wholly unacceptable occurrence in society,” adding that he does “not condone the type of violence seen in the shooting of the deputies yesterday in Compton.”
However, Ometeotl went on to make excuses for the violence. He claimed “that communities like Compton have been plagued by deputy gangs that inflict fear and violence in the community.” He blamed law enforcement officers for murdering, framing and stealing from members of the community as well.
“The fact that someone randomly opened fire on deputies is to be expected in the society we live today. The political climate and leadership of [Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva] has only sowed seeds of anger and frustration in the community,” he wrote.

Big League Politics has reported about how Black Lives Matter terrorists are celebrating the shooting of the two cops, with savages congregating around the hospital in which the police officers were struggling for their lives in order to taunt them:
After Black Lives Matter terrorists shot two law enforcement officials in the head in Compton on Saturday, other BLM terrorists showed up at the Los Angeles hospital where they were being treated to taunt the cops as they struggled for their lives following the cowardly ambush attack.
“We are out here at St. Francis Hospital where two of America’s most notorious gang members have been brought to. We are going to go up here and just check on these murderers right here and see what’s up,” said the BLM terror leader, who identified himself with unintelligible hood gibberish.
The thugs made their way to the hospital to harass the law enforcement officials as they attempted to recover. They were told by a security official with the hospital that they were trespassing, which prompted a belligerent reaction.
“You see what’s happening right here, right? They got these pigs out here. They are telling us that we cannot come in here and see these individuals whose been shot down at the motherf**king train station,” he said.
The security official attempted to explain to the low IQ thug that this was a private hospital, but he lacked the cranial capacity to understand the difference between “public” and “private” property. When the mob became confused, the thugs started making noises that an animal would make. They also called the hospital security officer a “b*tch” and said all cops would “die one by one.”
By making excuses for their orgy of mayhem, Ometeotl is an associated force to the BLM terrorists. He is using his privileged government position to provide cover for this marxist revolution that is attempting to overthrow the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
