Former NYPD Commissioner Calls on the FBI to Classify Antifa as a Domestic Terrorist Organization

A former New York City police commissioner wants to see the Antifa labeled as a domestic terrorist organization by the FBI.

The Antifa — named so because it originated as an anti-fascists group — landed back in the headlines this week after brutally beating a reporter covering a protest in Portland, Oregon.

As IJR previously reported, reporter Andy Ngo suffered a brain bleed at the hands of Antifa protesters. His attackers also stole his cameras and other reporting equipment.

While Ngo’s attack may be the most recent violent outburst of an Antifa protest, it isn’t the first. As IJR previously reported, the Antifa has been responsible for a hospital shutdown, the vandalism of a Marine recruitment facility, and attacks on several other reporters.

Because Antifa has a track record of using violence to meet its political ends, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik believes they should be deemed a domestic terrorist group by the FBI.

Kerik explained his thoughts on the situation during an interview on Fox News.

Watch Kerik’s comments on the Antifa:

“First of all, you know, this is an extremely violent group that goes out and threatens, intimidates, attacks with extreme violence for political reasons. If you look up terrorism, the definition of terrorism, that’s what terrorism is. When somebody threats, imposes threats and violence against someone else for political reasons. I think, I’ve said this in the past and some people would disagree, I think they should be designated as a terror group, a domestic terror group just like the Black Liberation Army and the Black Panther Party and Weather Underground.”

Kerik also called out the City of Portland for their inaction on Antifa protests and noted that he believes the failure to address Antifa on a local level is why the FBI must get involved. He claimed his department would have been “all hands on deck” when the Antifa was protesting.

As for Ngo, he is healing from his attack and his attorney plans to “sue into oblivion” anyone involved in his assault.

I mean the fact they haven’t been labeled a terrorist organization yet is insane they are word for word a terrorist organization. They use fear or terror to spread their agenda regardless of the safety of those who disagree with them. They don’t just suicide bomb people but that incident with this Andy guy could have easily ended up with him dead.

This group must be shut down now, where is the federal police force as they are everywhere in this country, and must be deemed a domestic terrorist organisation!! Portland Oregon must wake up and face consequences, the police department is a joke, and that hurts me to say that, the mayor is a waste of a person letting Antifa go roughshod through the city for how long now! What will it take, a dead body, murder???

DHS did but it’s past time FBI & DOJ did. These people should not be on the streets. They are the fighting force of the leftist nazi globalists and they must destroy America and our freedoms (our Constitution) to complete the global governance plan. This is the plan of Rothchilds & Rockefellers.
