Rep. Haaland: Antifa Are ‘Peaceful Protesters’ Trying To ‘Safeguard Their City’


Democratic Rep. Debra Haaland of New Mexico referred to Antifa as a group of “peaceful protesters” who are simply trying to “safeguard their city” during an interview on CNN.

CNN host Ana Cabrera began by reading Trump’s tweet and then asked: “I do want to note, the U.S. does not have a domestic terrorism law. No government agency designates domestic groups as being domestic terrorism organizations. What’s your reaction to that tweet?”

“This is on par with what the president does. He sides with the white supremacists, he sides with the white nationalists, with the domestic terrorists in our country,” Haaland said. “He’s incited violence against people of color. Portland is a progressive city. They want to ensure that they keep their city moving forward.”

“It’s not surprising that Trump would side away from the folks who are the peaceful protesters working to safeguard their city from domestic terrorism. Just not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists,” she continued. “That’s been his mode of operation since before he was elected president.”

Police arrested at least 13 individuals during the protests and counter-protests between far-right activists and “anti-fascist” demonstrators in Portland, Ore. according to reports.  More

New video footage has surfaced of several violent attacks by Antifa on demonstrators in Portland, Oregon.

The clashes come as Trump has warned he would designate the left-wing movement as an “organization of terror.”

They threw hammers at people, maced and pepper-sprayed the people on the bus and smashed windows on the doors on the bus.

They don’t just regard Proud Boys as ‘fascists,’ cops and the USA are ‘fascist’ too.
