    Default ‘Unmasking Antifa Act' includes 15-year prison term proposal

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...z&ocid=DELLDHP


    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.

    I support this.

    Also in before Backlash: Antifa LITERALLY means Anti-facism. They can't possibly be a problem. At all. This was all proven to be true on PolitiFACT.. so I know it's FACTual.

    I think you guys are supporting this based on title alone. The text is foolishly broad, and would never pass a court challenge. This is a waste of tax payer dollars.
    I don't use Lich. If you want to do business with me, contact me via PM, IG, or on AIM. Or maybe use smoke signals. Don't like it, get off of my lawn.

    It is already the law in a few states. Louisiana for one.

    Yeah. Catchy title but the whole text is written to allow prosecution of basically anyone who dissents with the administration. It's not going anywhere.

    What happens if they do all that but aren't wearing a mask though?

    And does this apply to ninjas? If so that's racist. Not that they would get caught, but still.

    Asians love taking pictures. These ninjas allowed this photograph to take place as a one time deal.

    Even if this could get passed, it's dangerous precedent. Think to the future if the Democrats ever get their heads out of their own ass holes and win the Presidency again. Do you really want law the Dems can point to that says demonstration/dissent by conservatives is worthy of prosecution? We do not need to give the government MORE power than they have.

    That's not what the law says at all.

    The law specifically says you can't attack or intimidate someone else who is enjoying a right afforded to them by the government. The law also states the person has to be wearing a mask or a disguise.

    There are already laws on the books that prevent people from disguising their identity in public (ironically or unirionically in response to the KKK and their hoods) and there are already laws on the books in regards to a person depriving another person of their civil rights. This law just seems to be taking elements of these two laws in response to a group of dangerous "activists."
