WATCH: Jim Jordan Crushes Top Dem Who Said Antifa Was ‘Imaginary’

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Across the country, Antifa chapters have sprung up in major cities to hijack mostly peaceful protests against police brutality with violent, anarchic demonstrations.

But Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler said on Thursday he does not believe the group even exists.

During a speech on the house floor, the Judiciary Committee Chairman described Antifa as an “imaginary thing.”

Moments later, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan had a chance to speak and shredded his Democratic colleague for making the comment, pointing him to Antifa-caused violence across the country.

“I can’t believe the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee would utter such a statement on the House floor,” the conservative firebrand said.

Jordan also pointed out the scary fact that the Democratic leader believes the same group President Trump labeled a “terrorist organization” just doesn’t exist.

“They’re not imaginary. They’re real,” he continued.

“And if you don’t believe me, go talk to… Andy Ngo — the journalist in Portland who was attacked by Antifa, who the President of the United States designated as a terrorist organization, to have the chair of the Judiciary Committee say on the House floor this sentence: ‘Imaginary things like Antifa,’” Jordan added.

“They are far from imaginary,” he exclaimed. “And there are people from every major city in this country who know that, yet the chair of the Judiciary Committee just made that statement. That is scary!”
