Suggested title: Petition Making Way To White House To Designate Antifa As Terrorist Organization
Subheading: The white nationalist hate groups have been getting all the attention from the Left, but there’s plenty of damage being done by Antifa as well.
You rarely hear anything more than a peep from the mainstream press about Antifa.
Even more stunning, members of the group are presented as some kind of noble ‘resistance’ against President Donald Trump and his administration.
While it’s easy to laugh that off as further evidence of media bias, there’s much more at play here.
Glamorizing the behavior of the violent alt-left group opens up the door for even more frightening behavior.
Breitbart passes along the scoop on how some folks are trying to get the group at least somewhat under control.
A White House petition created Thursday is calling on President Trump to officially recognize the radical left-wing Antifa movement as a terrorist organization.
“Antifa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition reads.

The group has shown incredibly violent tendencies across numerous appearances.
Breaking stuff and attacking others because you’re upset is generally frowned upon in civilized societies such as ours, but Antifa has been given a hall pass to do as it pleases.
In the most recent incident in Charlottesville, the violent protesters clashed with right-wing activists protesting the city’s decision to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee.
Although Trump has not called out “Antifa” by name, he did condemn white supremacists and violent “alt-left” protesters.
“What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?” Trump told reporters at Trump Tower on Tuesday. “What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. That was a horrible, horrible day.”
As we are all well aware, Trump was completely ripped to shreds for his comments on Charlottesville.
How dare he point out that there was more than one hate group in attendance that was behaving like complete neanderthals!
The mainstream press has done a countless number of irresponsible things in the Trump era, but glamorizing the so-called resistance may be the worst offense of all.
Hopefully, the goals of the petition will be achieved. Will we then see the press spin it as if Trump is somehow trying to stifle criticism of his administration?
The smart money says yes on that, but something needs to be done to get Antifa to be held accountable for its actions.
