Here's Why FBI is Finally Investigating Antifa Members
Looks like Antifa is finally getting the attention they so desperately crave. It's not daddy's approval but hey, at least it's something. There's been one too many riots, pummelings, and broken shop windows. Apparently the FBI has had enough of the flaming dumpsters (not to be confused with a Jimmy Kimmel segment). So they've launched an investigation into Antifa's ranks. Finally!
The FBI is investigating people inspired by "kind of an Antifa ideology," bureau Director Christopher Wray said Thursday.
Wray told members of the House Homeland Security Committee that people associated with the so-called anti-fascist or Antifa movement were subject to the FBI probe amid possible violent criminal activity.
"... we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology," he told the House panel.
Wray said the FBI was investigating about 1,000 domestic terror cases. He added that out of about 1,000 open domestic terror investigations, all are focused on actual physical threats.
Turns out you can only throw so many violent tantrums before the FBI starts to investigate you as a violent criminal.
It's not surprising that Antifa boasts a long, colorful record of crime and stupidity. It's a tad surprising that it's taken the FBI this long to do anything about it though (see Vox Says Not to Fall for Biased Coverage Against Antifa). Better late than never?
For too long, antifascist sissies have been in dire need of a spanking. This might just do the trick.
