Every Democrat in the Senate has refused to acknowledge the violence caused by antifa throughout the protests and riots that have occurred since the death of George Floyd.

The Daily Caller contacted every Senate Democrat asking if they would consider legislation to label the group a terrorist organization. Each office was given over 24 hours to respond to the question. The group has been participating in riots since Floyd died while in police custody after an officer put his knee into the back of his neck for over eight minutes while he was handcuffed and on the ground.

President Donald Trump announced Sunday that the U.S. would officially designate antifa as a terrorist organization, as they have been responsible for violence at dozens of protests since he took office. In 2019, Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy introduced legislation to label antifa a terrorist organization.

When the Daily Caller asked Cruz about Democrats’ silence on antifa’s violence and his legislation, Cruz responded by saying: “It’s disgraceful that not a single Democrat has the courage to acknowledge an obvious fact: that Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization. Antifa members are rioting and looting in cities all across the United States, and every Democrat pretending otherwise is grossly violating his or her obligation to serve the people of this county. We need to stop the violence, end the riots, keep people safe, and call out Antifa members for the terrorists they are.”

Cruz also blasted antifa after Senate Republicans’ weekly Tuesday lunch, saying “Let’s be clear, these Antifa protesters that are organizing these acts of terror, among other things, they are behaving in a profoundly racist manner,” also adding that he was “glad the president yesterday led by going to St. John’s Church,” which was set on fire by rioters Monday. “It was important for the president to be there and say we will not be cowed by terrorists.”
