Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) was recently spotted posing in a Twitter photo with the book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, written by Mark Bray, followed by a caption he wrote stating that the racist reading material should “strike fear in the heart” of President Donald Trump.
In case you aren’t aware, this Antifa “handbook” is filled with anti-white rhetoric, including how to set up so-called “kill zones” for ending the lives of conservatives and white people. This, coming from a member of Congress who has an extensive history of spouting both anti-white and anti-semitic rhetoric.
Antifa, as you may recall, is the same left-wing fascist (ironic, isn’t it?) group that initiated riots and started fires at the University of California, Berkeley, last year in response to conservative speakers who held lectures on campus. Antifa’s violent tactics are so extreme that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), have both classified the organization’s members as domestic terrorists who engage in “domestic terrorist violence.”
Antifa was also the culprit in initiating a violent clash at last year’s incident in Charlottesville, Virginia. But that hasn’t stopped Rep. Ellison from endorsing the group’s tactics, most recently by pushing Antifa literature via social media. Bray, a Dartmouth College professor, clearly states in this manifesto on domestic terrorism that:
“…[M]ilitant 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.”
In other words, anything that radical “anti-fascists” don’t like about society – including lawfully elected presidents – should be engaged with violence and extremism. Rather than try to engage in a healthy debate or present logical arguments as to why the Trump administration, for instance, is such a grave threat to society, these anarchists would rather burn things, tear down statues, and harm people to get their point across.
Rep. Ellison, an African-American, apparently agrees with this approach, as evidenced by his recent photo-op with the book. He also apparently agrees with the book’s overt anti-white racism, which it dubs as opposition to “white nationalism.” Anyone with a brain knows that “white nationalism” is the left’s code phrase for white people who reject the notion that they are inherently evil simply because of the color of their skin, or who believe that white lives matter, too.
It’s important to keep in mind that Rep. Ellison hates the United States Constitution as well. While in college, he wrote several columns pushing the idea that black people need to separate from whites and create their own “ethnostate” because the Constitution is the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
Rep. Ellison also declared back in 1992 that black people don’t live in a “democracy” like everybody else, and thus have no “obligation” to obey laws. In other words, he believes that black people have a duty to rebel and cause trouble in society in order to “level the playing field.”
Interestingly enough, Rep. Ellison has further ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which paid him $13,500 to take a pilgrimage to Mecca back in 2008. Rep. Ellison failed to disclose this financial “donation,” and thus became the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation for illegally taking money from an anti-American terrorist organization.
“Ellison once defended famed anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, against charges of anti-Semitism,” adds Peter Hasson for The Daily Caller.
“In an op-ed for the Washington Post last year, Ellison said he should have more closely scrutinized Farrakhan, who once said Hitler was a ‘very great man,’ but blamed a ‘right-wing smear campaign’ for any questions raised about his ties to anti-Semitic figures.”
