Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security labeled Antifa’s activities as ‘domestic terrorist violence’

September 1, 2017

  AntifaWhen Donald Trump condemned the violence on both sides in the wake of the Charlottesville riot he came under intense fire from the Democrats, the mainstream media, and some Republicans for trying to put the blame on both sides while not strongly enough denouncing white nationalists and the KKK.

  This eventually led to all Trump supporters being labeled as white supremacists and Nazis. All the while the violent actions of Antifa have been ignored; Antifa was engaged in violent activities before Charlottesville and it has continued since but it came to a head last week when Antifa attacked a wheelchair bound veteran. This was so egregious that even Nancy Pelosi, in an effort to distance the Democratic Party from the violent hate group, actually came out and condemned them.

  Now, according to this story, a new report is out which exonerates Donald Trump. It turns out that back in April of 2016 Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security was so concerned about Antifa that the department warned that the group was engaged in “domestic terrorist violence.”

  From the left-leaning Politico:

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as “antifa” had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence,” according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.

Those reports appear to bolster Trump’s insistence that extremists on the left bore some blame for the clashes in Charlottesville and represent a “problem” nationally. 

  Of course this is from Politico so naturally the website had to put some of the blame for Antifa’s violence on Donald Trump even though the violence began before anyone thought he even had a slight chance at becoming President. I would argue Antifa’s violence has increased because they have what they consider to be a political enemy in the White House. It is not as if Antifa needed an excuse to become even more violent but now they have one and the media’s refusal to cover Antifa is partly to blame for this.

    The blame should sit squarely on both the Obamunist’s socialist and Trump’s seemingly dysfunctional, amateurish and impotent FBI, DHS and DOJ for Antifa’s ever increasing and in your face terrorist tactics. C’est domage!

      The violence began while Obama was in office and nothing was done about it and now it has increased and still nothing is being done about it. And it doesn’t help that the media is ignoring the violence from the left.

      I couldn’t agree more. Too much of the swamp resides in these departments. The fact that Pelosi is starting to change her tune about this group was probably because she got a heads up that this was going to come out.

        You are probably right about that. If this was not about to come out she probably would have stayed silent.

    years from now, we’ll find out antifa was infiltrated and being controlled by the FBI this whole time.

    they’ve done it before…the black panthers, the neo-nazis, the klan…all controlled by the FBI .

        left hand, right hand..same puppeteer, same playbook, same script.

        1)infiltrate 2)radicalize 3)neutralize and/or weaponize.

        over and over…they’ve used this particular strategy since the 1950’s at least. in a way you can’t blame works, so why change? the problem comes when they run these ops too close together. there are enough militia guys still around and active from the 1990’s that saw this going on then with enough clarity to recognize it when they see it again.

        my group, the 1st granite state irregulars (we’re still listed on the SPLC website last I checked) was being infiltrated and I shut it down HARD. any member that was with us less than 3 years was summarily removed. some of them were good people.some of them were FBI who were, behind my back, teaching sabotage and explosive skills to other members..something we forbid from the founding of the group. besides being “bad optics” it’s not anything a community defense organization would need to know how to do.

        my guess is this is the sort of things being taught to antifa right now. and they don’t have the moral compass to understand exactly what it means to be doing those sorts of things.

        Glad you were able to catch them and get them out. It is pretty clear they were setting you guys up to take you down.

      I wouldn’t be surprised by either one.

    Isn’t this nice:

    “Public school teachers are behind a leading far-left militant group that is part of the Antifa network that federal officials say is committing “domestic terrorist violence.”

    Isn’t this biting the hand that feeds you?

      No CJ the hand that feeds them isn’t the poor taxpayer who produces the money. Then hand that feeds them is the leftist politicians who give away taxpayer money to leftest teacher unions in exchange for keeping the leftists in power.

    Too bad, nobody views the Nazis the same way they view anti-fa.
