DOJ to use 1968 law to prosecute Antifa

  • 3.2K Views


The rarely used 1968 anti-crime measure, more famous for its term H. Rap Brown Law, is now being brought back by the U.S. Department of Justice. This law will be used to launch prosecutions for both far-left Antifa and white supremacists, according to the sources from DOJ that informed Newsmax this Tuesday. 

The Anti-Riot Act makes it a federal crime with the intention to cross state lines by (A) inciting a riot or (B) the organizing, promotion, encouragement, and participation in a riot.

DOJ Sources, particularly in the prosecutorial community, agrees that this law easily applies to Antifa for its role in the nationally watched and extremely violent demonstrations against the "Proud Boys" of Portland, Oregon that took place this weekend. 

President Donald Trump tweets that Antifa is "An organization of terror". Their clashes with the Proud Boys brought the activities of Portland to a halt. Whether or not the "Brown Law" will be used against Antifa, the Justice Department spokesman gave no comment. 

Other sources, however, point out that the U.S. Attorney's office in West Virginia already used parts of the Brown Law. This successfully prosecuted four Californian white supremacists for taking part in a conspiracy intended to incite a riot in August 2017, the "Unite the Right" rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. They all pled guilty and are received sentences. 

As part of the 1968 Civil Rights Act, this also takes into a measure the use of interstate commerce and other forms of communication for riots will make it a federal crime. 

Though used infrequently by prosecutors, this law will now be used in the case regarding Antifa and future acts of riot.
