I, for one, would like to see a lot more requests for permits be denied when “provocateurs,” as Mother Jones called them, are on the agenda.   If the odds are that your event is going to be peaceable, that’s one thing.   But, on the other, you might be “enticing a riot.”   I want to see public officials exercising their prudence in the name of public peace – and for Federal Judges to stop deciding that those who feel differently are actually “plaintiffs” in their courtrooms.   Yes, you have the right to speak ... peaceably.   But if something happens such that someone gets beaten, something about that (proposed) gathering was wrong before it even began, and we should not be afraid to say “No,” and to have the decision stick without, shall we say, “judicial meddling.”

2016 - Dept. of Homeland Security under Obama designated Antifa a "domestic terrorist organization."

I think former U.S. Attorney McCarthy is right. Obama admin shouldn't have designated Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Civil liberties put at risk.

Why not just refer to it as organized crime, or something along those lines?   Basically, no matter what you say you “stand for,” to me a whole lot depends on how you “make your stand.”   You can be as loud as you want as long as you aren’t wearing masks and carrying billy-clubs or just threatening other people.   (Or if you forget that they have the right to speak, too!)   The moment you do, by your actions, become an opponent of the public peace, the public does have the right to “just say No” and to stop you.   Peaceable assembly ... yes.   Riot ... no.   Three people dead over a 150-year old statue ... absolutely not.

I, too, am not quite sure what the sobriquet “domestic terrorism” is actually supposed to mean, and in this word of para-militarized police forces (where obsolete military equipment goes to die ...), I’m not sure that we should be encouraging it too much.
