After the Charlottesville riots in 2017, now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) took to Twitter to support Antifa, a violent leftist domestic terrorist organization.
“One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi,” he said on Twitter. “The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.”
It’s not easy for the Department of Justice to label someone or a group a domestic terrorist because they have to satisfy at least one of three approaches to be determined as so, which are:
- Are their actions an act of domestic terror? ( Fun Fact:Domestic Terror isn’t an actual crime)
- Does the group conspire and act in such a way to deprive individuals of their civil rights?
- Are the crimes or actions considered hate crimes or hate motivated?
What is Domestic Terrorism?
The Patriot Act defines domestic terrorism as endeavors to “intimidate or coerce a civilian population; to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping.”
Antifa fit the definition because their tools and methods used are through intimidation.
Antifa of today is a blend of anarchism and perceptual antifascism which is a very dangerous combination. Antifascism is based on personal perception. Some may consider nationalism just and right but others consider it fascism. This is why it is so dangerous and feeds into the hive mentality of those which cannot discern differences and use broad brushes using the term “Nazi” for anyone that they believe are biased, racist and condemning fringe or traditional values that threaten their beliefs.Antifa: Domestic Terrorists (Fascism 2.0)
Many, just like CNN and other radical left television, radio and print outlets sympathize and deter the public to define Antifa as a terrorist group. Even Mitt Romney tweeted out his support for the group two years ago.
It was the classic “it’s okay to punch a ‘Nazi’” take, where “Nazi” is defined as any person who supports President Donald J. Trump. In fairness, there were some actual neo-Nazi’s in Charlottesville, and those people are bad. But to lump them all together is stupid and removed from nuance, and Romney sent that Tweet only to virtue signal to his elite liberal friends that though he masquerades as a Republican, he is still part of their team.
Romney has behaved like a jilted ex-girlfriend since he gave up during the final three weeks of the 2012 election and handed it to Barack Obama, only to watch Trump come out of nowhere and win the 2016 presidential race on the Republican ticket in 2016.
Romney wiped all evidence of his tweet supporting Antifa.
While condemning neo-Nazis is great, so is condemning far-left domestic terrorists like Antifa, particularly after they assault a member of the free press, leaving him with a brain bleed, like Antifa did to Andy Ngo.
We reported on that incident:
Andy Ngo, who frequently covers the violent alt-left group Antifa in the Pacific Northwest, was beaten and bloodied by a gang of masked members of Antifa on Saturday in Portland, Oregon, an ANTIFA breeding ground.
Ngo was attacked during Antifa’s counter protest of the Proud Boys, a men’s fraternal organization known for protecting conservative speakers and celebrities from violent leftists across the United States.
Labeled a domestic terrorist organization by the Department of Homeland Security, Antifa is largely allowed to run amok across the United States with no pushback from law enforcement. Key members of the mainstream media and progressive movement have cheered on their violent tactics, even when the group attacks journalists and the elderly.
Ngo has become a frequent target of Antifa online because he captures their violent outbursts on camera, showing the American people and the world in whole how unhinged and out-of-control the domestic terrorist group has become since the election of Donald Trump.
Ngo was forced to spend a night in the emergency room recovering from his assault at the hands of the radical left.
Did Romney condemn Antifa? Of course not. He was radio silent. And why didn’t Romney condemn Antifa? Because ordinary, patriotic Americans live under the occupation of elite politicians and businesspeople who hate us.
At the rally, held by The Proud Boys, in August to bring attention to Antifa, Romney had ‘no comment.’
