White House Petition to Label Antifa 'Domestic Terrorists' Goes Viral
Thousands sign petition calling for President Trump to take action against violent group
An official White House petition has gone viral that's calling for President Donald Trump to label violent left-wing group Antifa as "domestic terrorists."
Thousands of citizens have signed the "We the People" petition that will earn an official response from the Trump Administration should it reach its goal of 100,000 signatures.
The move follows the brutal assault of journalist Andy Ngo by a pack of Antifa thugs over the weekend.
For many, this vicious assault was the final straw and people are now demanding an end to the violence from the leftist group.
President Trump is now being urged to take direct action against the radical far-left organization.
Masked individuals attacked Ngo at a rally in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, for simply covering the protests - which eventually turned into a violent riot.
Video footage shows Ngo being suck-punched by a masked thug before he's set upon by a pack of hooligans who repeatedly punch, shove, kick, and throw containers of liquid at him.
The attack led to the journalist's hospitalization due to suspected brain bleed.
As a result of the attack, Sen. Ted Cruz has called on Portland police to prosecute the “violent felons” behind the attack.
The Texas senator also called on the FBI and Justice Department to investigate Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for facilitating the riots that led to the attack.
At the time of press, the petition has amassed around 25,000 signatures within a few hours of being launched.
If it reaches its goal of collecting 100,000 signatures in total, the petition will receive an official response from the White House.
The petition states:
Demand President Trump label Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.
As President Trump’s first term comes to a close, Antifa organizations all around the nation have gotten even more violent and depraved.
They have burnt down universities, attacked the elderly and even threatened acid attacks.
Antifa continues to target their fellow citizens with acts of violence and intimidation in order to reach a desired political outcome.
Recently, members of Antifa brutally assaulted an independent journalist, who remains hospitalized with a brain bleed after being viciously beaten and doused in liquid concrete.
Demand the White House and President Trump take direct action in labeling Antifa as a domestic terrorist group, full stop.
Our nation’s security and homeland are at risk until we are able to clearly define Antifa as domestic terrorists.
End this madness.
