President Donald Trump announced details of his “Platinum Plan” for African-Americans Friday, which would include increasing capital in black communities by $500 billion, designate the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations, and making lynching a national hate crime.
The president has pushed the idea of labeling Antifa as a terrorist organization since 2019. It’s expected he would make this happen through executive orders.
Trump pushed the idea to the forefront again following violent nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd.
“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” the president tweeted at the end of May.
Shortly after Trump’s tweet, Attorney General William Barr released a statement noting, “the violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”
The designation paves the way for Antifa and the KKK to be labeled domestic terrorists as classified in the 2001 USA Patriot Act. The designation allows federal agencies to target the entire group.
It seems this was anotehr good move as BLM is going to have to distance themselves from Antifa because of Trumps declaration of “terrorists” to protect themselves legally.
Yesterday BLM made the first move and tried to denounce Antifa and the “whites”
A video surfaced where a black BLM speaker in Portland urge white Antifa to stop “breaking stuff”
Then call on others to support the black cause without white influence.
RIGHT NOW: “If you ain’t black don’t break sh*t”
BLM and Antifa decide that random white people destroying property has been bad PR for the movement

Is this a PR speech? Remember the BLM motto: Property can be replaced, people can’t. This revolution requires complete destruction (Breaking/burning/obliterating things) in order to rebuild this country from the ground up.
