Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) have introduced a resolution to name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization as the group continues to act violently against journalists and law enforcement officials.
Cruz and Cassidy introduced a resolution last week that would name Antifa a domestic terrorist organization, echoing the sentiments of thousands of Americans who have been horrified to see the terrible display of violence, destruction, persecution, and mayhem wrought at the hands of the supposedly “anti-fascist” group.
On Twitter, Cruz wrote “Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence.” He added, “Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views.”
In a press release on Cassidy’s website, he is quoted as saying that “Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege.” He went on, “Bullies get their way until someone says no. Elected officials must have courage, not cowardice, to prevent terror.”
