*Rant at the bottom.
Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) introduced a bill on July 18 that would label Antifa a domestic terror organization after police in Washington said an Antifa member committed a terror attack on an immigration facility and Antifa members battered a journalist in Portland in broad daylight without being arrested.
“Antifa is a group of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their unhinged agenda through aggressive violence,” Cruz said in a statement announcing the introduction of the resolution.
“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.”
Cassidy called Antifa “violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism.” MORE
*Here’s that rant: Please PLEASE PlEaSe! For the love of everything crunchy and delicious. Can we all please stop using the word “Bully” when speaking about adults?!
These are criminals in adult bodies committing crimes, not a pack of wild 5th graders giving somebody an atomic wedgie.
Don’t give these subhumans cutesy labels. Antifa are not bullies.
People who throw crap on or steal belongings from people at a coffee shop are not bullies.
People who harass others to the point of them losing their livelihoods are not bullies. They are thugs. Emotionally/mentally damaged thugs.
Call them felons, or all them a$$holes but don’t call them bullies.
Sound serious and be serious.
Use your BIG words, dammit!
