(Natural News) A Republican lawmaker has introduced legislation aimed at members of the violent domestic terrorist group Antifa that would make it a crime to cover your face while participating in protests and other activities in which American citizens are being threatened and intimidated.
Called “H. R. 6054 – Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” the legislation — which was introduced in early June — amends Title 18, United States Code, “to provide penalty enhancements for committing certain offenses while in disguise,” among other things.
The bill was introduced by Rep. Daniel Donovan Jr., R-N.Y., and was referred to the House Judiciary Committee June 8.

According to the text of the bill:
Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.
Antifa members tend to wear black scarves and other head-coverings when they show up at conservative pro-Trump political events to intimidate opponents, attack them, and destroy private property
