As of writing, a total of 278,786 people have signed a petition imploring the White House to classify Antifa as a terrorist organization.
At this point, the petition’s signature count is well on its way to tripling the required 100,000 for a response from the White House.
Since Cernovich Media’s last report on the petition, President Donald Trump has called Antifa out by name for the first time ever, perhaps signalling increased attention directed from the White House towards the alt-left anarchist group.
The Antifa petition reads as follows:
Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare AntiFa a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.
Stay tuned for more information on the White House’s now-mandatory response to this petition.
