A popular petition at the White House’s petition website calls for an official governmental framing of George Soros as a terrorist. It reads:
Declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations' assets under RICO and NDAA law
Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law.
The petition was created on August 20 by “E.B.” It has yielded just over 59,000 e-signatures by the time of this article’s publication.
Another petition, created on August 17, calls for governmental recognition of AntiFa as a terrorist organization, it has since yielded just over 328,000 e-signatures by the time of this article’s publication. Proposed by "M.A.", it reads:
Formally recognize AntiFa as a terrorist organization
Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions – and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare AntiFa a terror group – on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.
