Ted Cruz Asks U.S. to Designate Antifa a Terrorist Organization
On Thursday, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) introduced a resolution condemning the violent acts carried out by antifa and calling for the U.S. to designate the group a domestic terrorist organization.
"Antifa is a group of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their unhinged agenda through aggressive violence," Cruz said in a statement. "Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their only purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views. The hate and violence they spread must be stopped, and I am proud to introduce this resolution with Senator Cassidy to properly identify what Antifa are: domestic terrorists."
"Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege," Cassidy added. "With bullies, they get their way until someone says no. There must be courage, not cowardice, from the elected officials who allow violence against the innocent."
