DOJ Dusts Off '68 'H. Rap Brown Law' to Prosecute Antifa

FINALLY!

The U.S. Department of Justice is dusting off a rarely used 1968 anti-crime measure known as the "H. Rap Brown Law" to launch prosecutions of both the far-left Antifa and white supremacists, DOJ sources told Newsmax on Tuesday.

Officially known as the Anti-Riot Act, the law makes it a federal crime to cross state lines "with intent (A) to incite a riot or (B) to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot."

Sources in the prosecutorial community who spoke to us agreed the law would easily apply to Antifa after its role in the nationally watched (and often violent) demonstrations against the "Proud Boys" in Portland, Oregon, this weekend.

"An organization of terror," is what President Trump tweeted about Antifa, whose clashes with the "Proud Boys" brought Portland to a standstill this weekend.

Asked by Newsmax whether the "Brown Law" would be used against Antifa, a Justice Department spokesman had no comment.

But other sources within the DOJ pointed us to the U.S. Attorney's office in West Virginia, which has already used parts of the "Brown Law." This was in the successful prosecution of four California-based white supremacists for being part of a conspiracy to incite a riot at the August 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. (All three pled guilty and received prison sentences.)

Trump needs to designate Antifa a Terrorist Organization. It's about time.
