After Nadler Claims Antifa Doesn't Exist, Republicans Give Details About the Violent Group

During a speech on the House floor Thursday afternoon, Democratic Congressman and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler claimed Antifa is "imaginary."

Antifa does exist and the loosely affiliated organization of anarchists has done significant damage to the country.

In a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr Friday morning, a dozen House Republicans are detailing the violent actions of the group and encouraging the Department of Justice to continue prosecutions of members who break the law.

"As you may know, ANTIFA groups have had a long history of violent protests, under which they have caused direct harm to anyone critical of their believes. For example, last summer, a photojournalist, who was a harsh critic of ANTIFA groups, was beaten by an ANTIFA mob on a public street. The photojournalist posed no physical threat to the group and was simply capturing footage during a Potland ANTIFA demonstration," the letter states. "More recently, in 2019, during an ANTIFA protest outside the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, an armed 68-year-old man attacked a police officer. The armed man placed his arms around the officer in an attempt to choose him, so that another protestor would be freed. Later, police found explosives and weapons in his bag."

"The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to speak freely and to petition the government through peaceful gatherings and protests. However, the ANTIFA protests directly undermine these freedoms, as they use terror and violence to silence the voices of opposition groups and to suppress their ability to assemble. This group continued to utilize these methods over the past week, which led to inflections of brutal injuries on law enforcement officials and villains and severe damages to infrastructure, small businesses, and historical sites," the letter continues.

Over the past three weeks, the Department of Justice has indicted a number of violent agitators involved in riots across the country.
