Should Antifa become America’s first designated domestic terrorist group?

On Saturday, August 17, 2019, a peaceful, turned violent far-right political rally took place at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland, Oregon. Over 1,000 people from both far-right and radical left groups were in attendance. Right-wing demonstration organizer Joe Biggs, with the assistance of Enrique Tarrio, the national leader of the right-wing, neo-fascist group, the Proud Boys, organized the rally as part of an “End Domestic Terrorism” campaign. As tensions escalated, physical confrontations between Proud Boys members and the Portland-based, Rose City Antifa compelled right-wing demonstrators to retreat behind police barricades.

Menacing the Powerful: The Use of Violence Against Politicians

Today, in our ever-polarized political world, it might be surprising to see politicians on both sides of the aisle agree on any issue, but lawmakers, law enforcement agencies, and politicians alike have been almost unanimously united against countering violent threats against themselves and the President.

Title 18 of the US Code states that an individual who threatens “to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm, to the President, Vice
