DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison backs violent communist Antifa movement

Rep. Keith Ellison claimed he found a book that would “strike fear” in President Trump’s heart but ended up raising eyebrows on social media.

The deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee posted a photo on Twitter Wednesday of himself posing with a book promoting the violent “Antifa” movement.

The Minnesota Democrat, who last year claimed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than Trump, “found” the book,  “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” at a Minneapolis bookstore.

The book’s author, Mark Bray, is a former Occupy Wall Street organizer and current Dartmouth visiting scholar. The book is described as “a smart and gripping investigation … of the full history of anti-fascism from its origins to the present day” on Amazon.

Antifa activists have been behind some of the most violent clashes on college campuses and other events in 2017. In November, the leftist groups planned anti-Trump protests in multiple U.S. cities. The Department of Homeland Security formally classified Antifa activities as “domestic terrorist violence” back in 2016 as Republicans – and eventually Democrats – sought to distance themselves from the radical left-wing activists last year.

Ellison has been a vocal critic of Trump and his policies, raging last month against the president’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a “horrible tragedy.” The DNC’s slogan last year to “rise” against Trump’s “hatred” and to “organize to defeat him” also spawned its share of violent responses.

 

Ellison’s tweet ignited some backlash on social media as Twitter users like Conservative Review’s Jordan Schachtel asked “Does the @DNC now support terrorist groups? ”
