A man in Florida who dubbed himself an “Antifa hunter” recently received a federal prison sentence of more than forty months after he entered a guilty plea for having allegedly threatened a politician of a different race as well as a girl with autism. The man was also charged with cyberstalking.
Antifa is a political movement in the United States that comprises a vast variety of independent groups that aim to accomplish their goals by using non-violent and aggressive direct action rather than legislative change.
According to the source article, the man breached the law after making violent threats against an African-American person with plans to announce his city council candidacy and an autistic child simply because the mother of the child disagreed with his racially motivated opinions.
