Rep. Banks calls for FBI to target Antifa as a terrorist group


PENTAGON FOR VITAL DATA LIKE PERSONAL STATISTICS, INTELLIGENCE AND OTHER CRITICAL DATA. THAT INVESTIGATION NOW UNDERWAY. REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS WANT THE FBI TO TREAT ANTIFA FOR WHAT THEY ARE, DOMESTIC TERRORIST. INCIDENTS LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN OREGON LAST MONTH AS CONGRESSMAN JIM BANKS OF INDIANA NOW CALLING FOR FBI DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER WRAY TO TAKE ACTION. HE WRITES IN PART QUOTE – AS A VETERAN IN THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN I AM FAMILIAR WITH THE TACTICS OF TERRORIST GROUPS AND HOW THEY EMPLOY FEAR AND VIOLENCE TO SILENCE THEIR POLITICAL ENEMIES. TO MY GREAT SURPRISE, WE ARE WITNESSING SIMILAR STYLE TACTICS RIGHT HERE IN OUR COUNTRY. JOINING US TONIGHT, THE MAN WHO WROTE THAT LETTER, CONGRESSMAN JIM BANKS OF INDIANA. MEMBER OF THE HOUSE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE AND CONGRESSMAN, IT IS GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US. WHAT IS YOUR INSTINCT, WILL WE SEE ANTIFA DESIGNATED A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION?>>I HOPE SO, LOU. IF THEY LOOK LIKE TERRORISTS, JUST LIKE PARIS AND USE THE SAME TACTICS, THAT TERRORISTS USE THEM WE SHOULD TREAT THEM LIKE TERRORISTS. I’M CALLING ON THE FBI TO DO SOMETHING THAT IS VERY SIMPLE THAT IS ACTUALLY UNBELIEVABLE THEY HAVE NOT DONE ALREADY. THAT IS TO ADD ANTIFA TO THE DOMESTIC EXTREMIST IDEOLOGY LIST AND TO CREATE A NEW SUBSECTION FOR ANTI-FIRST AMENDMENT EXTREMISM WHICH WOULD INCLUDE ANTIFA AS WELL, THIS IS SIMPLE, IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THEY HAVE NOT DONE IT ALREADY. IT WOULD DRAW SCRUTINY AND ATTENTION TO WHO ANTIFA IS AND ALLOW THE FBI TO FURTHER INVESTIGATE AND ROUTE THEM OUT OF SOCIETY ALTOGETHER. LOU: RECENT FIRST AMENDMENT, YOU’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS TO EXPRESSION?>>NOT AT ALL. IN FACT IT IS THE OPPOSITE. WHAT ANTIFA DOES, THEY STIFLE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, THEY STIFLE THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. — THAT’S RIGHT, ON CAPITOL HILL LAST WEEK I VISITED AND HE IS A CASE IN POINT OF WHAT ANTIFA IS CAPABLE OF. WE NEED TO TREAT ANTIFA LOOK WITH THE CAR WHICH IS A DOMESTIC TERRORIST IDEOLOGY GROUP. AND SO FAR THE FBI HAS FAILED TO DO THAT BUT I WE ARE CALLING ON THEM TO CREATE A SUBSECTION OF A LIST ON THEIR WEBSITE THAT WOULD INCLUDE ANTIFA AND ADDRESS THEM AS SUCH. LOU: THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, LET’S SEE WITH THE PRESENT TWEETED ON THIS. CONSIDERATIONS BEEN GIVEN TO DECLARING ANTIFA THE GUTLESS RADICAL LEFT WAX JOBS TO GO AROUND HITTING ONLY NON-FIGHTERS. PEOPLE OVER THE HEAD WITH BASEBALLBATS . A MAJOR ORGANIZATION OF TERROR ALONG WITH MS-13 AND OTHERS. WOULD MAKE IT EASIER FOR POLICE TO DO THEIR JOB. CAN THE PRESIDENT ORDER THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO SIMPLY DO THIS?>>HE CERTAINLY CAN. I’M SURE THAT HE IS WAITING FOR HIS FBI LEADERSHIP TO SIMPLY DO THIS ON THEIR OWN. THAT’S WHAT I’M CALLING ON THEM TO DO WITH MY LETTER. HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET THEIR ATTENTION. WE SENT THE LETTER YESTERDAY. LOU: IF YOU GET THEIR ATTENTION I PROMISE YOU, YOU WILL BE THE FIRST TO HAVE EVER DONE SO. I’VE SEEN MORE LETTERS WRITTEN IN THE PAST THREE YEARS WITH THIS PRESIDENT IN OFFICE, THAT WERE IGNORED BY A GROUP OF ABSOLUTELY AS WE NOW KNOW, POLITICALLY CORRECT LEADERS IN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND THE FBI. AND FRANKLY I SEE NOT MUCH DAYLIGHT BETWEEN CHRISTOPHER WRAY, JAMES COMEY, ROBERT MUELLER AND THE ENTIRE BUNCH OF — BUREAUCRATS TO BE KIND. WHO HAVE LED THE FBI.>>THAT IS WHEN TRYING TO DO. CALL ATTENTION TO THIS. I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL GET THERE ATTENTION BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT IS DRAWING A GREAT DEAL OF ATTENTION TO ANTIFA, THERE TACTICS. AND WHAT ANDY WINTER IS UNBELIEVABLE SO FOR THE FBI, THE AUTHORITIES IN THE COUNTRY HAVE NOT DONE ENOUGH TO ADDRESS THE THREAT OF ANTIFA. WE ARE CALLING ON THEM TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND DO JUST THAT. LOU: AND THE PRESIDENT IN DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE, HE CORRECTLY I BELIEVE, INCLUDED MS-13. IT IS STAGGERING TO ME THAT MS-13 HAS NOT BEEN DESIGNATED AS SUCH AS WELL. WOULD YOU AGREE WITH THAT IN ADDITION TO ANTIFA?>>THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. THE HYPOCRISY OF ALL OF THIS IS STUNNING. ANTIFA OR MS-13, IF THEY WERE PRO-TRUMP ORGANIZATIONS, IS ALL WE WOULD HEAR ABOUT ON THE LEFT OF MEDIA. AND SOMETHING WOULD BE DONE ABOUT IT. BUT BECAUSE THESE ARE LEFT-WING IDEOLOGICAL GROUPS, WHO EMPLOY VIOLENT TACTICS, YOU HAVE YET TO HEAR A SINGLE DEMOCRAT OFFICIAL, A SINGLE LEFT-WING OFFICIAL IN THIS COUNTRY CALL OUT ANTIFA FOR WHAT IT IS. THAT IS WHY I AM THE FIRST WAS SITTING HERE TO DO JUST THAT. AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO TO CALL THE FBI TO DO THE RIGHT

  16. That video is a perfect demonstration of the left's "tolerance." Anybody that feels the need to wear a mask in public proclaiming that they're "anti fascists" has some serious mental issues.

    Reply

  17. ANYTIME Antifa organizes they must be suppressed by the lawful authorities and either arrested or dispersed immediately! And the authorities should do that with at least the same, but better yet, higher level of violence that the Antifa thugs engage in themselves! You don't put down a rabid dog by petting it!

  19. All Antifa and those who support them are guilty of Treason. Antifa is a Global Terrorist and Foreign Financed organization that has openly declared WAR on America. All need to be rounded up Gitmo the least offenders and GUILLOTINE THE REST!

  20. Why can’t I find a domestic extremist ideology or Terrorist watch list list on the FBI webpage?

    Reply

  21. Im sure they would find a loophole if the FBI was forced to be involved. For example they would just rename their dumbass group and continue their rampage on innocent people? We’re no longer antifa we’re now called kantifa!

  22. Call on all the American motorcycle groups to show up wherever Antifa is, pussies won’t say a word! They will do more than the FBI

  29. Well it's about time; finally someone called them what they are antifa is a terrorist group and should be treated as such!!!

    Reply

  30. Just make a no mask law and they will no longer do anything like they are doing now because they don't have the guts to be on a list of wanted people. Groups like this just take the rights of all of us away. Just start arresting them and print their names in the paper that way everyone now knows who's behind the mask and I would say same goes for the burka and anything like that.

  32. If you need to wear a mask, you are a coward. If you use surprise attacks and terrorism, attacking innocent civilians, you are a coward. Left wingers are pushing a narrative that we support or condone the el paso shooter when I havent seen anybody do that, only on 4chan and its probably some unstable asshat

  33. Send Banks back to Afganistan and send the idiot has been Dobbs with him. If we didn't have a fascist administration and fake news reporters like the one who got what was coming to him in Portland then we wouldn't have an anti-fascist citizens group to fight the white supremacist Nazi's who instigate these encounters.

  34. Antifa has bashed hundreds of people in the head for years. Where have you been? Idiot Congressman and Journalists.

  35. Anyone that came at me wearing a mask and carrying a bat will instantly receive free body piercings by my friends Smith and Wesson.

  36. It should be treated as a terrorist organization because it IS a terrorist organization. In my opinion antifa is the biggest domestic threat in the USA because of its sheer number and because it has been getting more radical recently such as with the shootings. I hope the FBI acts and fast!

    Reply

  37. The beginning video shows antifa members still trying to intimidate and throws cups at the journalist who already got ganged up by people and was walking away. They're nothing but rats and only do things when your back is turned.

    Reply

  38. Someone people high up is protecting the Antifa so unless Trump forces the FBI to do so it probably won't happen. I have written Trump so please write him demanding the Antifa be classified as a domestic terror group.

  40. The far right commit 3/4 of the political violence in the US. Treat proud boys and the racist right as domestic terrorists and then we can talk.
