Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal

The "Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018," legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the "antifa" movement of anti-fascist activists.

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

1. Good!

If they are so proud to be the misnamed "anti facists", show your face. The left are the true facists, just like the leftist Dems that made up much of the Ku Klux Klan.

24. You're talking such bullshit. Dems in the klan were not "leftist".

They were as CONSERVATIVE as the day is long. Are you completely ignorant of the ideological history of the parties?

Survey says "yes".

26. The first Republicans were liberal-radicals.

I would have been proud to have been a supporter of THAT Republican party. However....

What does that have to do with what they are now?

2. I'm all for this law but I doubt it will hold up to judicial scrutiny

They were talking about this on DU and they didn't like this law and were wondering if it would apply to the KKK

4. It certainly should.

GA has a similar law, w/ exceptions for holidays (think Halloween) or theatrical productions.

9. I can see it being struck down if it was illegal to wear them out on the street

but in the commission of a crime? probably not.

... self - restrained from doing. I look only a little bit like my avatar, for instance...

If these 2 schmucks are breaking the law they should be prosecuted

Simple concept even you should be able to comprehend

10. I guess as a hysterical person that you are you might have forgotten to read the bill

It says its illegal in the commission of a CRIME not just standing around holding a gun, calm down un-clinch your panties and reread the bill

11. When these two guys start acting like liberals

burning police cars
smashing windows of bank buildings
attacking people on the street
and blocking traffic

Then let me know. Otherwise, if they want to play army in the desert all by themselves I don't care.

16. They don't appear to be acting like liberals:

burning police cars
smashing windows of bank buildings
attacking people on the street
and blocking traffic

Perhaps you need a refresher of common liberal behavior?
