Senate Democrats fell eerily silent when asked to acknowledge the untold violence and rioting caused by far-left group Antifa following the death of George Floyd.

Every Senate Democrat was contacted by The Daily Caller, who asked them if they would consider legislation to label the group a terrorist organization.

They were given 24 hours to respond.

Antifa has participated and, in most cases, instigated riots across the US since Floyd died in police custody.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump's administration announced that federal law enforcement has launched an investigation into Antifa leaders and far-left group agitators suspected of being behind the nationwide rioting and unrest.

Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy in 2019 introduced legislation to label Antifa a terrorist organization.

Cruz responded to the Democrats’ silence on Antifa's violence:

“It’s disgraceful that not a single Democrat has the courage to acknowledge an obvious fact: that Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization," he said.

"Antifa members are rioting and looting in cities all across the United States, and every Democrat pretending otherwise is grossly violating his or her obligation to serve the people of this country."

"We need to stop the violence, end the riots, keep people safe, and call out Antifa members "or the terrorists they are.”

“Let’s be clear, these Antifa protesters that are organizing these acts of terror, among other things, they are behaving in a profoundly racist manner,” he said.

“It was important for the president to be there and say we will not be cowed by terrorists.”

“I don’t believe so. I don’t think that will happen at all.”

“I would hope that they would because what we need to do is protect the rights of those who want to peacefully protest, and this chaos and violence and the loss of life, two officers, is preventing peaceful protests and those voices being heard, so I hope there would be Democrats that would champion the right of peaceful protests.”
