GOP Finally taking action against Antifa

Timothy Birdnow

Finally, Congress is taking action against the lawless and violent behavior of Antifa/Black Lies Muttered.

From the Hill:

"The "Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the "antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists.
Under the act, anyone "wearing a mask” or in disguise who "injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison."

[...]

"The bill was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan (N.Y.) and is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Pete KingPeter (Pete) Thomas KingWashington big names celebrate launch of Hill.TV The Hill's Morning Report — Trump denigrates NATO allies, floats 4 percent solution ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal MORE (N.Y.), Paul GosarPaul Anthony GosarOvernight Energy: EPA watchdog won’t drop Pruitt probes | Exxon leaves conservative advocacy group | Lawmakers offer changes to Endangered Species Act Western lawmakers introduce bills to amend Endangered Species Act ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal MORE (Ariz.) and Ted BuddTheodore (Ted) Paul Budd‘Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal Election Countdown: Calls to abolish ICE test Dem candidates | First round of House GOP 'Young Guns' | How Tester is handling Trump's Montana visit | Dem candidate won't back Schumer as leader | Super PACs ramp up Missouri ad buys Selling government assets would be a responsible move in infrastructure deal MORE (N.C.)."

End excerpt.

The Hill article is dripping with condescension and sneering at those who support this as "right wing hate groups". I suppose it's hateful to want to sit quietly in a restaurant and not be harassed by masked thugs, or to protest legally and peaceably without being assaulted.

Glad the GOP is finally getting some backbone here.
