I don’t understand why or how so many people are interpreting this as meaning Antifa somehow isn’t a domestic threat. He effectively said that Antifa is no different than all the other online domestic extremists being groomed today. His words are no different than pointing out that white supremacy is an ideology and not an organization. Yet they go around carrying a flag in organized groups beating and terrorizing those who don’t agree. Reddit is such a shithole for condoning them.
Wray did not dispute that Antifa activists were a serious concern, saying that Antifa was a “real thing” and that the FBI had undertaken “any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists,” including into individuals who identify with Antifa. But, he said, “It’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.”
