Feds Take Marine’s Guns Away After He Says He’d “Slaughter” Antifa

Antifa has been wreaking havoc on the city of Portland, Oregon for over a year now. During clashes with Trump supporters and right-wing groups, Antifa members have covered their face with masks and proceeded to attack people with crowbars, violent attacks, and even acid. Their violence left journalist Andy Ngo with a brain injury–and yet no Antifa members were arrested for the attack. President Trump has said that he is condering classifying the group a “terrorist organization.”

However, law enforcement hasn’t done much to stop the group. And now, according to reports, a former United States Marine has had his guns confiscated for saying that he would “slaughter” Antifa.

The marine, Shane Kohfield, made the comments while standing outside the home of Portland’s mayor. He was wearing body armor and a “Make America Great Again” cap. He also had his concealed weapons permit displayed on one shoulder.

He said to other Trump supporters on scene, using a loudspeaker, “If Antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next. I’d slaughter them and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out Antifa.”

Even though the FBI has done nothing to hold Antifa terrorists accountable, they took the step of punishing Kohfield–which including the seizure of his firearms. The FBI also had the Marine committed to a hospital in Portland against his will for 20 days.

At this time, Kohfield has not been charged with any crimes. He has, however, been forbidden from attending planned rallies to counter Antifa protesters.

Michael German, a retired FBI agent and fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School, told Oregon Live, “Clearly, this latest incident shows how effective proactive policing can be in reducing the chance of violence. It also makes you wonder if they’d been proactive from beginning whether all of this would have grown into the menace it has become.”

Portland’s FBI bureau made its own statement, praising itself for taking actions against Kohfield; they did not, however, address their failure to crack down on violence caused by Antifa members or hold any accountable for a number of violent attacks. Beth Anne Steele, a spokeswoman for the bureau’s Portland office said in a statement, “The Portland JTTF’s role is to assess, address, and mitigate any given threat against the people of Oregon appropriately. Sometimes that mitigation takes the form of criminal prosecution, and sometimes it involves a holistic response, including consultation with threat assessment teams or others to divert a person before a significant violent crime occurs.”

It is unclear if President Trump will follow through on his threats to label Antifa a terror organization–but there is little doubt that his followers hope he does.
