Are You A Domestic Terrorist? That Depends On Who Is In Power

By Daniel Lang

Over the past year, Antifa and other similar anti-fascist groups have been caught threatening, intimidating, and inflicting violence against peaceful people on numerous occasions. And in each case, this has been done with the goal of effecting political change in this country. And that has left many of their critics wondering why groups like Antifa haven’t been labeled as terrorist organizations. What these people are doing, literally fits the dictionary definition of terrorism, which is “The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”

Well if you can believe it, Homeland Security has finally done what they should have done months ago.

The Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey has officially listed Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization after a rash of violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.

Under the heading ‘Anarchist Extremists: Antifa’, the njhomelandsecurity.gov website characterizes Antifa under the designation of “domestic terrorism”.

“In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations,” states the advisory, before going on to list a number of violent disruptions, including Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at the University of California Berkeley on February 1st, which was cancelled after members of Antifa violently attacked free speech advocates.

The advisory also lists how Antifa has engaged in doxxing of individuals to expose them to abuse and violent harassment.

But that brings up an important question. Why did it take so long for Homeland Security to call Antifa a terrorist organization?

In the post-9/11 world, it seems shockingly easy to be labelled a terrorist by our government. In the past, Homeland Security has deemed conservatives, libertarians, and Christians as potential terror threats. The government has kept a watchful eye on veterans, for fear that they will turn their lethal skills against the feds. A wide variety of people have been added to the terror watch list, despite having no known affiliations with any terrorist organizations.

People who are merely preppers, conspiracy theorists, or who make purchases with cash are suspect. Americans who wish to encrypt their phones are viewed as potential terrorists. Even making your own gold and silver coins is viewed as a form of domestic terrorism.

In short, if you make the government even slightly nervous, there’s a good chance that you will be seen as a potential terror threat, and the government doesn’t necessarily need any solid evidence to place you on a terror watch list. So, again, why is it that in a society where any slight transgression can land you on the government’s shit list, did it take so long to label Antifa a terrorist organization?

The truth is that as far as our government is concerned, “terrorist” is a catch all term for anyone who is a threat to the government. Sometimes that includes people who are genuine terrorists; but, more often than not, it includes peaceful people who simply don’t want to go along with the government’s agenda. And because of that, the government’s definition of terrorism changes depending on who is in power.

The most likely reason Antifa is being called a domestic terror organization, is because Donald Trump is president. If Homeland Security was under Obama, I seriously doubt that they would have received that label. In this case, that label is totally justified, but that could change in the future. We live under a government that can totally disregard the rights of anyone they say is a terrorist, but the definition of that word is fluid as far as the government is concerned.

It is applied to whoever is a threat to the system at any given moment. It changes whenever it is convenient to whoever is in power. You can go from being a relatively free citizen to a terrorist who is stripped of all his rights, depending on who is running the country. What is considered totally normal behavior one day, can be deemed a terrorist threat the next. So until the government adheres to a strict definition of terrorism, all of our lives are in danger.

  1. What does it matter if the Berkly police don’t arrest anyone? Is there a statute of limitations on acts of terror? Could we charge Bill Ayers for what he’s admitted?

      Spot on LaughingMan! That is really hillarious!

    • There are different types of anarchists. The ones in antifa are anarcho-COMMUNISTS, who obviously support communist. There are anarcho-capitalists, anarcho-primitivists, etc… The red and black flag is anarcho-communists, the black and gold are anarcho-capitalists, though I haven’t seen them, the green and black are anarcho-primitivists. People hear “anarchist” and assume all anarchists are there and bad, but it isn’t that simple. Since the ancoms support communism, and antifa is pushing for a communism-based system, those are, I’m sure, the anarchists that are there. Anarcho-capitalists wouldn’t support communism or anarcho-communism, they speak against both all the time…. So I seriously doubt there are any ancaps in antifa. Antifa has black and red symbolism as well, and though they are separate flags they both add up to communism and anarcho-communism in color. So it’s not as simple as “anarchists bad”, just because some are in antifa, people need to find out who is who, the media doesn’t inform on distinctions.

    What a suspiciously confusing article! We can guess why!

    It does not matter who is in govt., in mostly ZioNa*i-controlled Conserv-Lib ruling alliance, dominating Wezztern regimes – because this (One) ZNWO Beast Empire actually make the same rules, who they consider as ‘terrorrists’ but in different make-up. And by the way, Democ are warmongering Libs; nothing to do with the Left!

    That is, this same ZNWO terrorism rules apply, concerning Antifa or many (true) Left/anti-ZNWO groups for that matter (which unfortunately are being infiltrated aggressively by ZioNa*i agents at the top leadership, who are using the violent MO, in order to demonize all these movement) – which dare to oppose these mostly carnivorous & predatory genocidal warmongers dominating the Wezzern civilization , especially through NA*O !

  4. Antifa is being funded by the the Sorios ngo’s.
