ANTIFA GROUPS FACED WITH POSSIBLE ‘UNMASKING’ LAW

Antifa, a loosely connected group known for using violence and intimidation against political opponents, now faces proposed law meant to “unmask” their organization.

VICE News reports that a member of the “Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council,” Carmichael Monaco, is unhappy about the proposed law.

Monaco was quoted as saying:

“In the current political climate, antifascists who speak out against fascism, racism, xenophobia, etc. are routinely harassed, threatened, and attacked by the far right, often supported by the police, who are notably exempted here. Families and friends of antifascists also become targets of far right violence. The wearing of a mask is an act of self-defense often necessary to ensure one’s right to free speech.”

Antifa groups clashed with white nationalist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August, but have also used violence and intimidation against conservative and pro-Trump groups with no connection to white supremacy.

 

Just over a week ago in Portland, Oregon, Antifa used intimidation tactics against right-wing group “Patriot Prayer.”

No masks for you, creeps.

A new bill proposed in the House called "unmasking Antifa" seeks to make it illegal to disguise yourself while depriving someone of their rights. Even though this law targets Antifa it would in turn work against any group regardless of politics. So is a law like this necessary and how does the far left feel about being called out?
