Senate Hearing Witness Says Dem Senators Used Antifa Talking Points: ‘This Is Exceedingly Dangerous’

Several witnesses spoke at the Tuesday hearing for the Subcommittee on The Constitution of the Judiciary Committee regarding Antifa and the political conflict that has torn the country apart over the past months — one such witness said “Senate Democrats used antifa talking points to label American law enforcement as secret police & compared them to ‘right wing militias.'”

Kyle Shideler, Senior Analyst for Homeland Security & Counterterrorism at the Center for Security Policy, took to Twitter to explain what he saw during his time at the hearing and to present grave predictions of Antifa if Democrats continue to ignore and consent to the domestic terrorist organization.

He explains Democrat silence and seeming acceptance — at least total unwillingness to denounce — of Antifa and their criminal behavior emboldends the group to go further and increase violence. It will “get much worse” if Democrats don’t speak out against the group. Shideler points to the condemnations from Democrats after the 2017 Berkeley Antifa attacks on journalists as proof that speaking against the group stops them from advancing.

“Antifa’s strategy is to radicalize the mainstream & push the center-left into their camp by endlessly expand concept of “fascism” until it encompasses anyone who opposes them. Calling the @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, the police & (implicitly) 63 million voters fascists does this,” Shideler tweeted.

He furthers saying the silence only pushes Antifa to be more violent — their violence is currently tamed for strategic reasons as they can’t get too out of hand or they risk losing political influence.

If Democrats purposefully keep refusing to condemn the terrorist organization — like Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) yesterday when she walked out of the room after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave her an open mic to condemn the group — the group will continue to grow in prominence in violence.

Democrat silence “pushes antifa to be even more violent. Right now their violence is tightly controlled ONLY for strategic reasons. They seek to do only as much violence as will terrorize while not losing their political top cover,” Shideler tweeted.

It’s time for Democratic members of the Senate, House, and across the country to condemn Antifa to stop the group in its tracks before their violence destroys the nation and all the things in it so many Americans hold dear.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
