Trump's ‘ANTIFA' Threat Is Total Bullshit—And Totally Dangerous
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/Getty"ANTIFA" is not a real organization. And there is no such thing as a domestic federal terror designation.

But President Donald Trump's tweet that the U.S. "will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization" is a very real threat.

Trump's Sunday offering came as federal and local authorities across the country scrambled to contain increasingly violent protests in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of police in Minneapolis. Trump, who over several years has launched numerous tirades against anti-fascists, blamed the movement—really, a set of organizing tactics—for vandalism at the protests.

National Security Adviser: Trump's Threat to Shoot Protesters Was Attempt to ‘De-Escalate Violence'
White House National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien insisted on Sunday morning that President Donald Trump's inflammatory tweets calling on law enforcement to release "vicious dogs" and the military to shoot protesters were actually attempts by the president to "deescalate violence." 

Over the past few days, as protests over Minneapolis police killing an unarmed black man have grown increasingly more intense and violent, the president has fired off several incendiary tweets demanding cops and the military take swift action. 

In one notorious tweet, the president exclaimed that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts," a phrase that dates back to the 1960s when a Miami police chief vowed a take-no-prisoners approach to unrest in black neighborhoods. The president's tweet was later deemed by Twitter to violate its rules about glorifying violence.

‘On the Verge': Violent Police Clashes Carry Terrifying COVID Future
Hollie Adams/GettyThe word "unprecedented" has been used ad nauseam in recent months, but when public health authorities tried on Sunday to predict the potentially catastrophic effect of nationwide police brutality protests amid a deadly pandemic, it seemed hard to find a suitable alternative.

After months of diligent social distancing to curb COVID-19 transmission, Americans in major cities all over the country took to the streets in huge crowds this week to protest the death of George Floyd—and decades of other black deaths at the hands of police officers—after the 46-year-old was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer who shoved a knee into his neck while he was handcuffed, face-down on the pavement.

Public health experts and city leaders now fear new waves of COVID-19 outbreaks could worsen infection numbers and deepen racial disparities among those severely sickened by the virus.

Black Protester Shot to Death Outside Omaha Bar
Stephen Maturen/Getty ImagesA young black protester was shot dead outside a bar in Omaha, reportedly by a white man, as unrest across the nation engulfed the Nebraska city.

The Omaha World-Herald identified the slain man as 22-year-old James Scurlock and said his family was planning on making a statement later in the day.

Police said early Sunday that a suspect in the shooting was in custody, but they did not say whether he was being charged and provided no details about what led to the killing, except to say officers were not involved.

7 Shot in Kentucky, Cop Shop Burned in Minneapolis as Cities Explode in Anger Sparked by George Floyd Death
Carlos Barria/ReutersSeven people were shot in Louisville, Kentucky; an SUV plowed into a crowd of demonstrators in Denver, Colorado; full city blocks were ablaze and a police station was torched in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

None of those involved in the overnight clashes would have likely even known that President Trump was censured by Twitter for "glorifying violence" against them when he threatened: "Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

Violence erupted Thursday night and carried on into Friday morning across a number of cities where underlying racial tensions having been simmering for decades. The protests began over the death of George Floyd—an unarmed black man who died when a white police officer knelt on his neck while in custody.

"Weaponized and Racialized": Police Departments Use COVID-19 to Target Black & Brown Communities
Viral images have shone a spotlight on uneven policing. Some show police officers distributing masks to White residents in crowded New York City parks — and apparently arresting no one. Meanwhile, videos have emerged of violent crackdowns on social distancing measures in Black and Latinx neighborhoods. We continue our look at how Black and Brown communities are being disproportionately targeted and policed in New York City's enforcement measures during the pandemic, and also discuss how officers have ordered protesters to disband, citing executive orders from the mayor and the governor that ban "any non-essential gathering of individuals of any size for any reason." We speak with author and activist Jill Nelson, who was recently arrested when she used chalk to write "Trump = Plague" on an abandoned building, and with Norman Siegel, civil rights lawyer for Nelson and former head of the New York Civil Liberties Union.
