New Jersey has become the first state to include Antifa (the so-called “antifascists”) on a state list of domestic terrorist groups.
In an article dated June 12th, the website for New Jersey’s Office for Homeland Security and Preparedness profiles the “Anarchist Extremists,” summarizes how the group has engaged in violence against others, and releases the personal information of targeted individuals to expose them to violent harassment.
Well, it’s about time my home state did something right. This is hardly an inappropriate designation, as the definition of terrorism is “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” Is that not Antifa’s behavior to a T?
One down, 49 states to go.[Note: This post was written by Matt Palumbo. He is a co-author of the new book A Paradoxical Alliance: Islam and the Left, and can be found on Twitter @MattPalumbo12]
