Secret Service Moves in After Antifa Thugs Finally Cross the Line

Share

What started as peaceful protests outside the White House on Sunday soon drew the attention of the Secret Service.

While the bulk of the protesters marched while carrying banners of “Peace” and chanting peaceful slogans, the crowd was also “peppered with anarchists, black bloc thugs and armed, masked Antifa members,” as reported by The Daily Caller.

Amid chants the of “Love, not hate. That’s what makes America Great,” threats of violence against President Donald Trump were being recorded by reporters on the scene.

The Secret Service policy prohibits comments on “protective intelligence investigations,” but the agency confirmed with The Daily Caller that it was aware of the threats and the incident was under investigation.

As reporters asked the antifa protesters what they would say to the president if he showed up at the rally, they answered with violence in all instances.

“If I get the chance to f— him up I would.”

“We’d have to do him like Gaddafi.”

“Beat his ass.”

“I would murder him, for the people.”

Do you think the antifa thugs are terrorists?

“If I get a chance to f— him up, I would.”

“I would throw the f—— bell at him.”

“I would p— on his leg.”

Violence against those with whom they disagree seems common in the antifa movement.

In this video from the dismal Unite the Right rally on Sunday in Washington, a man was pushed by an antifa protester, and large groups of demonstrators marched through the street chanting anti-American slogans.

Social media chronicled antifa protesters attacking media and law enforcement.

However much these thugs claim to be motivated by battling what they call “fascism,” it seems they have no other interest except to be oppositional and violent, especially against conservatives and capitalism. It may be amazing to you, as it is to me, that this group claims to be anti-fascist. They are anything but that.

It’s long past time that the Secret Service steps in to investigate the actions of these radicals. It’s never acceptable to threaten a president. And neither should anyone in the United States fear for their own safety as they peacefully gather to demonstrate, no matter what the cause.
