Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham said Tuesday that it’s time to start thinking about declaring the left wing radical group Antifa “a terrorist organization,” in light of its public violent outbursts.
“We should also urge everyone to consider pressing this idea of declaring Antifa a terrorist organization,” Ingraham said during an interview on “Fox and Friends.” “This group is trying actively to intimidate, suppress free speech and violently attack people with whom they disagree.”
Ingraham said she hopes the Trump administration is looking into Antifa, because people’s lives could be at stake.
“It’s kind of an amalgam of a bunch of left wing anarchists and activists. There is not one central organization. They’re all over the place. But there is a way to pursue this and I hope this administration is looking at this very carefully because people could die here,” she said.
Ingraham added that prominent Democrats have still not come out and condemned the left wing group, despite its inflammatory actions.
“Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, we are waiting for the condemnation. Barack Obama, all these other people. How about the Bushes? Have the Bushes commented about Antifa? I would like to hear them on that,” she said.
“Imagine if the roles were reversed here and any type of conservative group that was taking bats and pepper spray to peaceful liberal left wing protesters,” Ingraham said. “Imagine that story. It wouldn’t have been on page A3 of the Washington Post.”
