UPDATE: Since this story was published, new reports state that the Twitter account set up under the handle Antifa_US was fake, and the tweet was a hoax.

The FBI has issued a warning to the Minnesota National Guard, and maybe others, about a “credible, lethal threat” against them.

According to Law Enforcement Today, the warning comes after investigations into whether extremist groups had been inciting and creating violence during the protests across the Country.

Earlier today, President Trump broke the news that the group that goes by the name Antifa would be characterized as a terrorist organization.

Antifa activists have reportedly been posting online via multiple platforms in an effort to coordinate protests, riots, and violence.

On Saturday, an Antifa activist group put out a message that encouraged people to consider Minnesota National Guard troops “easy targets,” according to two Defense Department officials.

Then, shortly after Trump’s announcement of the group’s new classification as terrorists, a screenshot began circulating social media at a rapid pace, reportedly from an Antifa Twitter account that has since been suspended.

The post describes their plan to move from the city and into residential areas to “take what’s ours.”

The internet went ablaze with this tweet, and seems to have some legitimacy, as people start reporting that members of the group are on the move.

With a threat to residential areas, it’s important to mention (again and again) that everyone should have a plan of self-defense of themselves, family and home. While the chances are low of violence related to the riots reaching your specific neighborhood, one can’t be too careful. We practice, prepare and train for self-defensive situations, and it’s good to be on alert as much as possible.

For the foreseeable future, heightening that alert isn’t such a bad idea.

It’s going to be a long and painful night for our Country.
