Loeffler Supports Unconstitutional Measure

Senator Kelly Loeffler wants “left-wing activists” to be deemed domestic terrorists. By whom? Well–that’s a good question. Any such move is likely unconstitutional to boot.

Loeffler cosponsored S.Res.279, ostensibly targeting Antifa which is fine in theory but it’s not an organization. Even if you support Congress wanting to restrict citizens’ rights to free assembly, the resolution freely interchanges “Antifa” with “left-wing activists.”

Granted this is merely a resolution and part of a desperate pitch to win a primary so it’s not truly meaningful. But it should be reprehensible that “left-wing activists” are now part of Loeffler’s imprecise legislative agenda.

Considering there is “no legal authority for designating a domestic group” as a terrorist group, you’d think the resolution would also want to outline some legal framework for doing so. That would be an example of a coherent legislator.

This is so odd; it seems to reflect political naivete (sp.?) more than anything. This resolution dates back almost a year, and was written more to address the then-present concerns about ICE agents being doxxed and singled out. (remember when detention of people seeking asylum and refuge was a problem? surely that problem was fully resolved, and won’t return whenever pandemic emergency restrictions expire…) But the resolution is sloppily-written and barely applicable to present realities, and besides the main sponsor Cassidy, the only other co-sponsor is Ted Cruz. Are those relationships critical for some reason? It seems it would be… Read more »
