Senator Cornyn Says Antifa Is a Form of Domestic Terrorism
Wednesday on The Chad Hasty Show, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined the program to talk about the latest issues from Washington, D.C., and in Texas.
Cornyn and Hasty discussed the expansion of college education benefits for veterans, as well as possible changes in firearms laws following the murders by firearm in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton Ohio.
Coynyn said, while speaking about those shootings and what can or should be done to lessen the frequency of such events, possibly averting such plans by potential attackers:
The Dayton shooter was sending off signals right and left, posting all sorts of radical ideology on social media, identifying with Antifa, this anarchist group that really is a form of domestic terrorism.
When asked by Hasty to expound on that description of the antifa movement, Cornyn said:
They certainly seem to be terrorists, and they are certainly domestic. I've heard some commentary Chad, that they really are not an organized group. They are, as I understand from the FBI director and others, they are people who are essentially anarchists, which I guess means they're not part of a group, but they certainly have a radical ideology, and in this case it looks like, may have inspired this shooter in Dayton (Ohio) to commit his heinous crime.
Also discussed was the increasing homeless population and chaos in Austin, Texas, in the wake of recent changes in the city's public camping laws.
