On Saturday morning, President Trump used some of this strongest language yet in calling out the marauding menace of ANTIFA who continue to harass and beat free speech proponents with impunity.
With the Democrats and the entire media working frantically to expand the definition of domestic terrorism to theoretically include all opponents of open borders, unfettered immigration, and support of Trump, the real terrorists are those clad in black who have escalated their tactics to include attacks on federal ICE facilities in recent weeks.
But the media is gaslighting Americans once again and to this day, not one influential Democrat has personally come forward to denounce ANTIFA’s violence and thuggery and don’t expect to hear it from any of them anytime soon.
With another round of mayhem expected to explode in Portland, Oregon this weekend as the black-clad goons will take advantage of the Rose City’s implicit sanctioning of mob violence, the POTUS took to Twitter to send a shot whistling across ANTIFA and Mayor Ted Wheeler’s bow that he will be watching “very closely” and that this time there could be serious consequences.
Trump also referred to the Democratic party’s paramilitary arm as an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR” which many believe is a thoroughly appropriate description.
Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!

President Trump said Saturday that he was watching “very closely” as opposing protest movements were set to meet this weekend in Portland, Ore.
In a tweet, the president wrote that he was still considering declaring the left-leaning movement known as “Antifa” a terrorist group as law enforcement urged businesses in Portland to shut down for the day ahead of possible violence.
“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully, the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!” Trump tweeted.
Trump had previously threatened to designate Antifa groups as a terrorist organization late last month after a conservative journalist for Quillette was beaten by Antifa members during a protest.
Last month, Trump also expressed the sentiment that ANTIFA is on the brink of being designated as a domestic terrorist group.
Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). Would make it easier for police to do their job!

That was after a mob of cowards stalked and attacked journalist Andy Ngo who was beaten and reportedly had cement shakes hurled at him in a despicable display of anti-Americanism that would be more commonplace in Germany during the early 1930s.

Ngo was hospitalized with head injuries including a brain bleed following the attack but fortunately survived which is a minor miracle because the Portland police didn’t lift a finger to stop due to being handcuffed by the radical socialist Mayor Wheeler.
Wheeler has been pressured ever since last month’s violence and has warned about consequences for hostilities this weekend when the hooligans will once again show up in force.
We’ve come here together, united as one, putting aside any differences we may have to say this:
We do not tolerate hate.
We do not tolerate violence.
This is our city, this is our home.
If your intent is to be violent, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE.
— Mayor Ted Wheeler (@tedwheeler) August 16, 2019
But Wheeler’s refusal to specifically denounce ANTIFA isn’t a good sign that he will exercise any control over what happens later on Saturday when his city explodes again; maybe this time, someone will end up being killed and then he will have blood on his hands.
If Wheeler fails to keep the peace then Trump and federal law enforcement authorities may have no choice but to call a spade a spade by correctly designating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization.
