  FBI director says antifa is an ideology, not an organization WASHINGTON (AP) — FBI Director Chris Wray told lawmakers Thursday that antifa is an ideology, not an organization, testimony that puts him at odds with President Donald Trump, who has said he would designate it a terror group. Wray did not dispute that antifa activists were a serious concern, saying that antifa was a “real thing” and that the FBI had undertaken “any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent extremism,” including into individuals who identify with antifa.”But, he said, “It’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.

"But above anything else, Keith loved and supported the people around him. He would do anything for his friends, family and children. He passionately wanted to see others succeed. And we all loved him for it."

The statement concluded by saying that Hufnagel's "legacy will continue to live on at HUF. Today, tomorrow and forever. Rest in peace, Keith."

Hufnagel founded Huf in 2002, opening the brand's first shop in San Francisco after he moved to the West Coast from New York.

He told Complex in 2012 that the brand's name "was sort of born on the streets."

"The name HUF just stuck with me as a sort of nickname amongst my friends, so once I turned pro I started using it on product and clothing and it became what people recognized me by," he told the outlet.

"In 2002, after I had been living and skating in San Francisco for a bit, I decided I wanted to open up a retail shop that would sort of fuse skateboarding with the sneaker and streetwear scenes at the time," he explained of the brand's inception.

The most viable plan would involve the two conference championship games being played in a bubble.

Hufnagel explained that while the Huf line began as "just hats and tees at first" with the shop's name, "it had turned into a full-blown clothing line" before he knew it.

"The whole evolution of the brand was really organic in a sense, and that’s something I’m really proud of," he said. "I’m stoked to see the brand where it is at today, considering how it all came about."

Several tributes were made to Hufnagel, who was hailed for his impact on skate and streetwear culture, on social media Thursday.

Nice Kicks, a sneaker publication, remembered Hufnagel for "bridg[ing] the worlds of skate, streetwear, and sneakers in an authentic way that continues to have a lasting impact today."

"Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful wife @mariellen_olson Thanks for being an awesome mom and taking care of all of us ❤️" he wrote, sharing a photo of his wife with their kids.
