I guess we have no room for doubt when it comes to Rep. Keith Ellison’s political leanings. He took a selfie with a book promoting the violent “Antifa” movement and posted it on Twitter. Communist much? This guy is the deputy chair for the Democratic National Committee. Looks like they are showing their true communist/anarchist preferences out in the open these days. In a post on Twitter, Ellison said that he found the book “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” at a Minneapolis book shop and said it would “strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.” That sounds an awful lot like he’s promoting violence in the streets and against President Trump.
“Antifa” is written by former Occupy Wall Street organizer and current Dartmouth professor Mark Bray. “Fascism cannot be defeated through speech,” Bray said in August. It is promoted on Amazon as “a smart and gripping investigation … of the full history of anti-fascism from its origins to the present day.” The book’s Amazon page includes complimentary reviews by The New Yorker, The Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle. Shame on all of them, including Amazon. I believe in free speech, but I don’t believe in sedition and for calls to violently attack others and overthrow the government. These are goons who wear masks and throw rocks, Molotov cocktails and anything else they can get their hands on. They beat innocent people within an inch of their lives. They are vicious scum.
Antifa is a far-left organization that uses violence in the name of progressive goals and against their perceived enemies. It came to attention this year for its thuggish tactics at Berkeley, when they attacked and assaulted right-wing protesters on the liberal college campus. Since then, wherever you find violence, you find Antifa in the US. And they aren’t an American phenomenon. They are huge in Europe. These thugs control whole towns in Germany.
According to the book, “militant anti-fascism is a reasonable, historically informed response to the fascist threat that persisted after 1945 and that has become especially menacing in recent years” and Antifa members must be ready to physically confront fascists whenever necessary. A Washington Post review of Bray’s book stated, “The book’s most enlightening contribution is on the history of anti-fascist efforts over the past century, but its most relevant for today is its justification for stifling speech and clobbering white supremacists — two Antifa traditions that overwhelm the chance to contextualize much of anything.”

Since Trump was elected President, Antifa activists have initiated violent clashes on college campuses and at other gatherings. The group has been accused of using coordinated violence against people they deem to espouse far-right ideology. They even tore down memorials for Kate Steinle in California. They are terrorists and killers. In August, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, condemned what she called the “violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa” and distanced them from the Democratic Party. “You’re not talking about the far left of the Democratic Party — they’re not even Democrats,” Pelosi told the Denver Post editorial board. “A lot of them are socialists or anarchists or whatever.” When they are too far-left for the likes of Pelosi, you know they are bad.
Unbelievably, Ellison’s post got a lot of support online. However, it drew a lot of negative responses as well. Jordan Schachtel of Conservative Review noted, “The FBI and DHS consider Antifa a domestic terrorist organization … Does the @DNC now support terrorist groups? Every Democrat in Congress should have to answer for this ON the record.” They should, but they really don’t need to. The DNC absolutely supports terrorist groups. Washington Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold pointed out that Ellison was endorsing a book “that advocates for violence in the streets.” Yes, he is… and that is right out of the communist playbook. It’s also a radical Islamist strategy.
Antifa uses violence to intimidate political opponents throughout the United States, but especially in liberal strongholds like Berkeley, Portland, Boston and Philly. One of the founders of Smash Racism DC, an Antifa-affiliated group, believes violence is at the core Antifa’s philosophy. Rationalizing violence, Smash Racism DC founder Mike Isaacson told The Hill, “The justification [of the use of violence] is that Nazi ideology at its very core is founded on violence and on wielding power by any means.” Isaacson also made it clear he does not believe people he deems Nazis should be allowed to freely assembly.
This is the new face of the Democratic Party. Communism mixed with anarchism and violence.
The FBI and DHS consider Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Keith is a DNC official AND member of Congress. Does the @DNC now support terrorist groups? Every Democrat in Congress should have to answer for this ON the record. https://t.co/Xi49ZP1aGu
