I am hereby formally designating Antifa an elephant.
While I'm at it, there are some other designations I would like to make.
I am formally designating the elephant as an endangered species in the mid-Atlantic states.
I am designating the mid-Atlantic states of the United States of America a federal disaster area.
I am designating my dog, Gurgi, an official hero of the realm.
And I am designating both @steve_vladeck and @hannahneprash as bank. You can send them your money now.
All of these designations have exactly as much legal meaning and force as the president declaring that a domestic group is a terrorist organization.
Any questions?
You can follow @benjaminwittes.
