With the media running interference for the army of violent antagonists at Antifa, a petition to the White House calling on President Donald Trump to formally classify the alleged anti-fascists as a terrorist group was launched.
The group’s fascist behavior belies their self-imposed description, and more than 162,000 people have signaled their agreement by signing the petition.
The petition, created by an individual using the initials “M.A.” has only been up four days.

“Terrorism is defined as ‘the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims,'” the petition states. “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,” the description continues. “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.”
President Barack Obama launched the petition website, which promises the White House will respond to any petition that receives 100,000 signatures within 30 days.
And while that has not always proven to be true, this is one petition you can envision President Trump taking a liking to.
