And once Trump declares antifa to be a terrorist organization, with a lot more serious consequences than being locked up for a weekend, their membership will drop.
Yesterday, he did, And what I’ve seen on social media thus far, the Leftists are doubling down on it.
I suspect the organizations are heavily layered, in order to fully insulate the power and money at the top.
Even if you are able to locate and arrest the guy handing out cash to rioters, you are probably one several layers up from the bottom, and a long long way down from the top. They’ve had a long time to establish their methods and vale their chains off communication and insulate cells of function from each other. Hell, it even looks like they have found ways to mobilize significant numbers of people across distances in short periods of time.
So if they weren’t already treating them like domestic (not completely domestic I suspect) terrorists or at least organized crime, then they’ve got a mountain to climb.
“And once Trump declares antifa to be a terrorist organization, with a lot more serious consequences...”
You KNOW Antifa has been infiltrated by FBI and local agents of the law. My first inclination is to say the FBI would be making arrests of known leadership now that they’re listed as a terrorist organization. But, I’ve lost faith in the FBI...and realize they’ll probably just let these guys continue.
