CNN is backing AntiFa now.
No surprise there.
But they probably didn’t realize they’d be violating federal law by aiding a domestic terrorist group:
U.S. Code § 2339A (1) the term “material support or resources” means any property, tangible or intangible, or service, including currency or monetary instruments or financial securities, financial services, lodging, training, expert advice or assistance, safehouses, false documentation or identification, communications equipment, facilities, weapons, lethal substances, explosives, personnel (1 or more individuals who may be or include oneself), and transportation, except medicine or religious materials.
Pub. L. 104-132 amended section generally, reenacting section catchline without change and redesignating provisions which detailed what constitutes offense, formerly contained in subsec. (b), as subsec. (a), inserting references to sections 37, 81, 175, 831, 842, 956, 1362, 1366, 2155, 2156, 2332, 2332a, 2332b, and 2340A of this title, striking out references to sections 36, 2331, and 2339 of this title, redesignating provisions which define “material support or resource”, formerly contained in subsec.
Here’s the re-cough-agitprop-cough-port CNN issued today:
The DHS has classified AntiFa as a “domestic terrorist organization” since 2016:
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has formally classified the activities of anti-fascist groups (antifa) as “domestic terrorist violence” since early 2016, according to confidential law enforcement documents obtained by Politico and interviews. Federal authorities have reportedly warned state and local officials the antifa has become “increasingly confrontational” in efforts to thwart white supremacist groups.
Hey guys. Just experimenting with some shorter-form content here.
I wanted a place to put stuff that I might normally not be able to fit anywhere into a larger article – but which is still relevant to the larger discussion.
Normally, I’d put them on Gab or something, but I thought, “Eh, why not?” I can post them here just as easily – and that way, those who aren’t subbed to me on Gab will get to see it, too.
I won’t be sending out notifications for when these are published; saving those for the bigger articles, but yeah, let me know what you think of these topical “micro-reports” in the comments below, and if you’d like to see more of them.
