Republican Rep. Dan Donovan of New York introduced a bill last month titled Unmasking Antifa-Act of 2018. This Bill would make criminalizes Antifa activists for wearing a mask. This crime is punishable for up to 15 years of imprisonment.
If passed, Bill HR 6054 would punish anyone wearing a mask or disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates” someone else exercising a right guaranteed under the Constitution.
Donovan stated to CNN:
“My bill expands upon long-standing civil rights statutes to make it a crime to deprive someone of Constitutionally-guaranteed protections while masked or disguised.”
“Americans have the natural right to speak and protest freely; it is not a right to throw Molotov cocktails and beat people while hiding behind a mask.”
This Bill is long overdue. Antifa is a Violent Organized Communist group that threatens the freedom of the First Amendment. If Democrats do not get behind this bill it will expose them for being the Fascist they are. I say this because Antifa is the same as Hitler’s Brown Shirts or Mussolini’s Black Shirts.
