GOP-proposed ‘Unmasking Antifa Bill’ includes 15-year prison term, places Antifa on same level as KKK

On Tuesday, The Hill reported that the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018” would impose a 15-year prison term for those engaging in the type of acts associated with the domestic terror group.

According to The Hill:

Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison.

The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their representatives and “let them know what you think” about the legislation.

The bill also says that anyone wearing a mask or disguise while destroying property can be sentenced to two years in prison.

The Hill further said the measure was introduced by Rep. Dan Donovan, R-N.Y., and is co-sponsored by Reps. Pete King, R-N.Y., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., and Ted Budd, R-N.C.

As we and others reported, Antifa activists have repeatedly engaged in violent acts against supporters of President Trump, calling them “Nazis.”

Recently, Antifa terrorists attacked a Patriot Prayer event in Portland and an Antifa thug nearly murdered a Trump supporter at a New York event for freedom.

Last October, it was reported that the FBI has evidence that Antifa members may have colluded with ISIS and al-Qaeda.

The New Jersey Homeland Security Department has also labeled Antifa a domestic terror organization and the Department of Homeland Security has classified Antifa activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

Nevertheless, some educators and media hacks have endorsed Antifa and Never-Trump Republicans like Mitt Romney have expressed support for the group.

The bill is currently sitting in the House Judiciary Committee.
