A Congressional candidate in Georgia issued a no-nonsense message to would-be domestic terrorists and backed it with a powerful visual.

Republican candidate Marjorie Taylor Green declared she “will never back down” after receiving death threats following the release of her video warning to members of Antifa. The conservative candidate running for Georgia’s 14th District in Congress put rioters on alert holding a semi-automatic rifle, telling them to “stay the hell out” of northwest Georgia.

“President Trump declared Antifa a domestic terrorist organization,” Green said in the short video posted to her Congressional campaign Twitter page.

“I have a message for Antifa terrorists: Stay the hell out of northwest Georgia,” she continued. “You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses, or destroy our homes.”

The mother and business owner’s Twitter account describes her as “100% Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Trump,” and her original video message, posted on Monday, has been viewed over 844,000 times so far.

Green doubled down after threatening messages followed the video release.

“I have received countless death threats from ANTIFA terrorists after I posted this video,” she tweeted Wednesday. “I have another message for them: You will not intimidate me & I will never BACK DOWN.”

As riots broke out across the country in the wake of the death of George Floyd last week in Minneapolis, the president announced that the antifascists believed to be behind the arson, looting and violent mayhem in major U.S. cities would be designated domestic terrorists.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.

“What happened to #GeorgeFloyd was horrific,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted. Tuesday, referring to the 46-year-old unarmed man who died after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee against the man’s neck during an arrest last week.

“It was police brutality. We’re united in believing the officers involved should face criminal prosecution,” Cruz added. “Yet we see Antifa terrorists deciding to take advantage of this crisis to wrongly paint peaceful protestors as being violent.”

Green is looking for support in the Republican primary set for June 9 which will allow her to face-off against Democrat Kevin Van Ausdal in November. The crowded Republican field is competing to succeed U.S. Rep. Tom Graves who is not running for re-election.

Green gained much attention last year when she launched a petition to impeach House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “crimes of Treason,” accusing the Democrat of being a “traitor to the American people.” The petition has garnered over 386,000 signatures.

The GOP candidate has been vocal about her stand on Twitter, declaring earlier this week that “every single person funding and supporting ANTIFA needs to be investigated.”
