Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has introduced a resolution that would brand anti-fascist group Antifa a domestic terrorist organization even as right-wing violence is burgeoning in the U.S.

"Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who 'fight fascism' with actual fascism, protected by liberal privilege," resolution co-sponsor Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) said in a statement Thursday.

Cruz called Antifa a "terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence."
