An Indiana Antifa cell has issued threats of violence against Rep. Jim Banks and the prominent social media account Libs of TikTok, who are scheduled to speak at an event in the state on Monday afternoon.

In a post from the Red Orchestra_AFA account, it stated, "ALERTA Bloomington, Indiana and Fishers, Indiana. Libs of TikTok homophobic bigot Chaya Raichik and far-right bigot Jim Banks will be speaking at 2 locations. You know what to do. Action items below."

The post detailed one of the events, a pizza lunch set to take place at Indiana University Bloomington on Monday at noon.

Despite the threats, both Libs of TikTok and Banks have denounced the call for violence, affirming that the event will proceed as planned.

Banks responded to the threats by stating, "Antifa is not happy that I will be joining Libs of TikTok founder Chaya Raichik today at Indiana University. They called us 'far-right bigots' and have called for violence against us. My message to Antifa is simple: we will not be intimidated and the event will go on."

Libs of TikTok also addressed the situation, tagging the FBI Indianapolis and stating, "Antifa is threatening me and a sitting congressman Jim Banks. When you’re done chasing down grandmas who waved American flags on Jan 6th, can you please look into this? Looking forward to meeting based and patriotic Hoosiers tomorrow!! Antifa won’t scare us."
