Keith Ellison is a congressman from Minnesota. He is also the second in command at the Democratic National Committee, the DNC. He recently posed for a photo with a book about the radical far left Antifa movement.
The Daily Caller reports:
Keith Ellison Poses With Antifa Handbook
Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison endorsed Antifa on Wednesday, tweeting a picture of himself smiling with an Antifa handbook.
Ellison posted a picture with “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” and asserted that the book would “strike fear in the heart” of President Donald Trump.

Antifa is a far-left group that uses violence to achieve progressive political ends, including starting riots and fires at the University of California, Berkeley. While the group claims to be anti-Fascist, they routinely shut down the speech of people they disagree with. Antifa clashed with far-right protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.
The book, written by professor Mark Bray, argues that “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.”
Here’s a screen cap of the photo in case he deletes the tweet:
This is who the Democrats are.
