In the wake of the Charlottesville violence and the attack involving a car being driven into a crowd of Antifa & BLM protesters, there have been calls for the groups involved in Saturday’s Unite The Right demonstration against the removal of the statue of General Lee in Charlottesville to be declared domestic terrorists.
The Case for Domestic Terrorism
As when Islamists use vehicles as weapons, any act of mass violence that is ideologically driven could be classed as domestic terrorism. However, in order to have the groups associated with the Unite The Right march, declared domestic terrorists, by that standard, those calling for such a move would have to accept Black Lives Matter & Antifa also being declared domestic terrorist organizations. Or risk exposing transparent bias and deteriorating the situation further into open civil war.
Black Lives Matter & Antifa: Domestic Terrorist Organizations
Both Black Lives Matter & Antifa have a well established history of using violence and intimidation to further their cause. Both groups have a track record of calling for dead cops; dead fascists etc. and the forcible silencing of voices they do not agree with. This side of Islamic terror, there are no better examples of domestic terror organizations in modern America than BLM & Antifa.
Antifa have been plying their trade as violent leftist street thugs all but unchallenged for the past year. All anyone had to do to be the focus of this violence was to turn up to speak at a university. People attending such events have been beaten unconscious; pepper sprayed; spat on and ultimately prevented from hearing the speaker, in contravention of their Constitutional right, by an organized group who exclusively use violence & intimidation to achieve their ideological goals.
Black Lives Matter also boasts an extensive body count to support their membership of this club. After openly calling for the death of police officers during demonstrations, adherents of the cause have ambushed and killed scored of U.S. police officers since. There seems little point at this stage arguing against their inclusion as a domestic terrorist organization. The only question really should be: why are they still operating?
Soros & the Democratic Party: Sponsors of Domestic Terrorism
The one thing both groups have in common is that they are in receipt of financial support from George Soros, and the tacit support of both the mainstream media and Democratic party.
Soros is the main funder of some 200 leftist groups, including Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org, and Black Lives Matter.
Soros also backs self-proclaimed antifascist groups—this year the Soros-backed group Alliance for Global Justice gave $50,000 to the militant thugs associated with the group Refuse Fascism. Read Full Article
Whilst Black Lives Matter directly received $650 Million via Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Democratic Party Terrorism
James Hodgkinson, the shooter of Republican House Majoiry Whip, Steve Scalise and three others, first identified and then shot the Republicans at a baseball game in Virginia earlier this year for no other reason their political affiliation to the Republican party. It was an ideologically driven act of mass violence (terrorism).
Hodgkinson was a supporter of Bernie Saunders. And whilst it would be unconvincing to lay the blame for that act of domestic terrorism on Sanders, it is not unreasonable to claim that the current culture of political violence was fermented & initiated by the Democratic Party – starting with the orchestration of violence at Trump rallies, which were planned & organized by Democratic Party operatives and paid for by George Soros.
James O’Keefe of Project Vertitas expose Democratic Party operatives orchestrating violence at Trump rallies.
Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi & Maxine Waters have not only consistently failed to denounce leftist violence against Trump and his supporters; they have infact poured fuel on such violence with their violent rhetoric. Likewise, when CNN describes a Black Lives Matter as ‘activists’, they legitimize the culture of violence the left currently enjoys.
The Democratic Party; George Soros & the liberal media are currently organizing; financing & legitimizing domestic terrorism in America.
If they are going to cast the domestic terrorism net and label right wing groups, ‘terrorist organizations’, the failure to include left wing groups with a much more convincing track record for the label, would do nothing but prepare the ground for a broader and expanding civil conflict.
