‘Unmasking Antifa Act’ Would Give Violent Communists a 15-year Prison Sentence #Antifa #Communist

The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists.

Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison.

The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after conservative personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their representatives and “let them know what you think” about the legislation.

Antifa activists, who often wear masks, have gained nationwide attention for engaging in violent clashes. Many activists in the movement have also disrupted actions planned by white supremacist groups.

The bill was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan (N.Y.) and is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Pete King (N.Y.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.) and Ted Budd (N.C.).

The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee.


Recently, a member of the Marxist, violence-embracing, group Antifa has reportedly tweeted out a list of the identities of over 1,500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

The Twitter account “nebraska antifa” sent out a tweet to its followers on Tuesday that linked to the personal information of ICE officers compiled from information found on LinkedIn.

“Some enterprising hero archived the ICE employees listed on linkedin,” the tweet reads.

A Twitter user who goes by Sam Lavigne compiled the list of ICE agents’ identities, titles and locations. In a tweet on Tuesday morning he says he “scraped LinkedIn for people that work for ICE.”

Perisic reports that the Medium link was no longer available as of Tuesday night, but “nebraska antifa” links to an archived post providing access to Lavigne’s original database.

In his post on Medium, the Marxist Lavigne explained his rationale for doxxing the ICE agents:

“I’ve downloaded and made available the profiles of (almost) everyone on LinkedIn who works for ICE, 1,595 people in total. While I don’t have a precise idea of what should be done with this data set, I leave it here with the hope that researchers, journalists, and activists will find it useful.”

In addition to the list, Lavigne “tweeted a screenshot of the personal Twitter account of ICE’s chief technology officer the day after Father’s Day, which included a picture of the official with his son.”

Lavigne’s post spread to a Marxist terrorist Reddit group, r/ChapoTrapHouse, where some users called for more doxxing of “Nazi” ICE and NSA agents.

“Doxxing ICE agents is good and moral,” wrote one Reddit user, Perisic notes. Read the full report here.

Update: Lavigne reposted the list on Twitter.
