Deputy chair of the DNC praises violent left-wing organization in a tweet – TheBlaze

Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Mich.), posted a controversial tweet that appeared to praise the organization “Antifa,” which has been noted for its extremism and violence.

The tweet reads, “At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike[s] fear in the heart of [President Donald Trump]” with a photograph of the book, “Antifa, the anti-fascist handbook.”

What is “Antifa”?

“Antifa” is short for “anti-fascist,” as the organization fashions itself as the opponent of any kind of fascism. In practice, however, the term has “fascist” has been applied to any stripe of conservative no matter how moderate or mainstream, and the opposition has often included violence.

Antifa members have shouted down conservatives and alt-right advocates at speaking events, some of which turned into destructive rioting. Some have called for the organization to be designated a “terror group” for their numerous acts of violence.
