Here’s Why DOJ Says Trump Labeling ANTIFA A Terrorist Organization Is ‘Highly Problematic’ + Whites & Cops Spotted Doing Damage During Protests

Trump is vowing to name ANTIFA as a terrorist organization and the DOJ is explaining why that would be “highly problematic.” Meanwhile, videos of whites and cops doing damage to businesses during the George Floyd protests are surfacing. Get it all inside…

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that the U.S. government would be “designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”

 

 

“’I don’t see any indication that there were any white supremest groups mixing in. This is an ANTIFA Organization. It seems that the first time we saw it in a major way was Occupy Wall Street. It’s the same mindset.’ @kilmeade @foxandfriends TRUE!,” he tweeted.

 

 

He continued, “These were the people that trashed Seattle years ago. Who’s paying for these people. I was appalled that 13 of Joe Biden’s staff were donating money to bail people out in Minneapolis. They should have stayed in jail until this is over (and beyond). @newtgingrich @foxandfriends”

As expected, Trump is deflecting. He’s blaming the violent protests on radical left-wing group, ANTIFA, making NO mention of other possible groups that are participating in damaging property during the protests. Trump blames ANTIFA for driving all of the violence and property damage.

According to ABC News, senior officials within the Justice Department, which would prosecute any such cases, have publicly warned against designating any U.S.-based groups as terrorist organizations, with one senior official telling Congress that such a move would be "highly problematic."

Legally, it seems Trump doesn’t have the authority to do so. Also, designating a terrorist group is typically a lengthy process, which requires careful legal review, as well as proof of foreign ties.

ABC News reports:

In particular, current and former government officials have repeatedly worried that officially designating a U.S.-based group as a terrorist organization could have significant First Amendment consequences.

The First Amendment protects the rights of Americans who like spewing "hateful speech" and "assembling with others who share the same hateful views," so "unless an organization engages solely in unprotected activity, such as committing crimes of violence, any designation of a (U.S.-based) organization as a terrorist organization … would likely run afoul of the First Amendment," Mary McCord, the former head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, told a House panel in January.

Such free speech concerns aren't implicated when dealing with groups based abroad, such as ISIS or al-Qaida. After all, foreigners outside of the United States are not protected by the First Amendment.

Attorney General Bill Barr said the Justice Department would prosecute people who crossed state lines to participate in violence, citing his authorities under anti-riot legislation.

“The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” Barr said.

Will they be prosecuting people who go online to incite violence under a fake alias? According to CNN, Twitter removed an account that was allegedly created by a known white supremacist group. Posing as ANTIFA, the now-suspended Twitter account tweeted a call for violence

"This account violated our platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts," a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement. "We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules."

Goes to show how the alt-right is using this moment in time to continue to spew violence and hate.

 

 

Trump spoke with U.S. governors and told them "You gotta arrest these people...And you can't do the deal where they get one week in jail. These are terrorists, these are terrorists. They're looking to do bad things to our country. They're Antifa and they're radical left."

He told the governors they needed to "dominate" the protesters. 

Listen to the full conversation is below:

While the Trump administration is blaming ANTIFA for everything, Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert said "anarchists" are likely the ones who hijacked peaceful protests downtown.

“I’m just so angry at the fact that some segment hijacked this and took some of the youth and brought them into the mix,” he said.

Peep a clip below:

What’s odd (or not since we’re talking about #45) is that Trump doesn’t make any mention of white people who have been caught on camera damaging property. Seattle Police Officers were seen damaging property:

In another video, cops were seen telling a white woman what to write as she was spraying graffiti on the side of a building:

 

Not surprised.

This woman (who isn't black) was spotted stealing cheesecake:

 

 

Protesters pointed out white people tagging buildings with "BLM":

A white man came out to a protest in Salt Lake City with a bow and arrow. He got into it with protesters and tried to shoot people with it! Everyone came together to disarm him and then they assaulted him. Check it:

 

 

When he spoke with the media, he lied and said two African-American males beat him up when in fact, it was mostly people who are NOT black. Watch him lie below:

Karma caught up to him rather quickly. Here's what happened to his car after the incident:

 

 

Hmph.

White people are also handing out bricks to people. This black woman said NOT on MY watch:

 

 

 

We'll just leave this here:

Despite all of the drama, peaceful protests have been happening across the nation:
