Following President Trump’s promise to classify ANTIFA as a terrorist organisation, hyperventilating leftists, virtue signalling celebrities and fake media mouthpieces rushed to DEFEND the group responsible for the wanton violence and destruction, because orange man is bad.
The hashtag ‘#IamAntifa’ began trending on Twitter, with hundreds of thousands declaring themselves in allegiance with Anarcho-communists.
What's weird is that if you spelled out what the acronym for this loose movement called "antifa" stands for and rewrite Trump's tweet accordingly, it would read: "The United States of America will be designating anti-fascists as a Terrorist Organization." https://t.co/JTwVR1bPsk— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) May 31, 2020
I organize my community. I hate racism. I think the government’s use of force on its own people is out of control. I encourage people to stand up to Nazis / skinheads / proud boys. I oppose all fascism. So... I guess, according to our President, I’m a terrorist? #IAmAntifa— 🐝🐝🐝 Aurora_Activist 🐝🐝🐝 (@AuroraActivist) June 1, 2020
How did I know I’d eventually be designated a “terrorist” by my own country? I’m an accomplice, here to leverage my privilege and platform, in support of movements for social and environmental justice. Also, will punch Nazis or help you find a medic. #IAmAntifa pic.twitter.com/iL7emQTzvL— B. Dolan (@BDolanSFR) May 31, 2020
Let's be crystal clear:— Peter Daou (@peterdaou) May 31, 2020
1. #ANTIFA = Anti-fascist
2. Domestic terrorism is overwhelmingly carried out by the RIGHT, not the left.
Sorry. I keep trying it in different scary voices, but I simply can't turn the word 'Antifa' - short for 'antifascist' - into something that sounds bad.— Stephen McGann (@StephenMcGann) June 1, 2020
I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA— Jeremiah Ellison (@jeremiah4north) May 31, 2020
Unless someone can prove to me ANTIFA is behind the burning of black and immigrant owned businesses in my ward, I’ll keep focusing on stopping the white power terrorist THE ARE ACTUALLY ATTACKING US! https://t.co/m6jxtDYmTi
Fascists like the Nazis killed 6 million of my brethren— Adam Cohen Lawyers for Good Government #DemCast (@axidentaliberal) May 31, 2020
Fascists like the KKK lynched scores of African Americans
If it is considered terrorism to fight against those whose racist ideologies seek the destruction of others
Then I am a terrorist#Iamantifa #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/Gpof6AuyWt

Anyone who claims to be a leftist, but who's against people who're actually serious about combating fascism, are just as much enemies of humanity as fascists. Liberals are the first line of defense for fascism. They deserve nothing but ridicule and rage. pic.twitter.com/AjF7IfkjjV
Others who seemingly have no clue that ANTIFA is a bunch of chicken-necked violent communists, lumped in war heroes and holocaust victims with them.
Others noted that because Trump was whisked off to a bunker by the Secret Service, that is proof that he IS Hitler:
BREAKING NEWS: In a continuation of the remarkable parallels between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler, the President of the United States of America last night retreated to his bunker inside the White House. It is not known if he had a revolver or cyanide pill on him at the time. pic.twitter.com/O0yrd6QWUl— Dorothy Tweet (@DorothyTweet1) June 1, 2020

Here you see our last “Big Leader”, protected in a bunker, deciding what to do, after the #Antifa unrightfully attacked the fine nation of Germany, that just wanted to be great again.#IAmAntifa pic.twitter.com/SSalTuOKhJ— Bill - bleibt daheim - Dung (@BiII_Dung) June 1, 2020
I prefer Presidents who don't dodge the draft 5 times, incite a civil war, then run for the safety of a bunker. #IAmAntifa— Shelby Kent-Stewart ™ (@ShelbyKStewart) June 1, 2020

Meanwhile, while not quite declaring themselves ANTIFA yet, leftist celebrities are getting behind a call to defund police:
