The president’s critics noted, however, that the United States does not have a domestic terrorism law and that antifa, a contraction of the phrase “anti-fascist,” is not an organization with a leader, a defined structure or membership roles.

I totally agree with you Left-anarchists should go Bakunin all the way, & denounce Bolshivism. Antifa seems to be a failure to defeat (((Donald Trump))) the Zionist Tyrant & his EVIL Fascistic Zionist New World Order Right-wing Tyranny.
