In addition to carrying out violent riots in Washington D.C. and Berkeley, California, the group “Antifa” has now threatened both WeAreChange Reporter Cassandra Fairbanks and her young daughter on Twitter.
We are not sure how this group will justify threatening a child but this has elevated from attacking reporters outside of the “Deploraball” on the eve of the inauguration, to threatening reporters covering their riots in California recently at U.C. Berkeley, to now threatening a child’s life.

There is currently a petition to label “Antifa” a terrorist organization. The FBI is also allegedly actively investigating classifying Antifa and it’s members as a domestic terrorist organization.
“Antifa is a Left-Wing Radical group that has for the past year caused violence and engaged in terrorist like activities. Last night, they caused damage and rioted at a college campus in Berkeley, California which resulted in property damage and minor injuries. If ISIS was declared a terrorist organization by Congress, we the people ask Congress to declare Antifa a terrorist organization,” the petition reads.
U.S. Code 2385 states:
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
After last night, that label being classified as a domestic terrorism organization is well over do.
