To "strike fear" into the heart of President Trump, Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, the noted anti-Semite who almost became the DNC chairman, photographed himself with a very special book: "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook."
The book's author, Dartmouth College instructor Mark Bray, has promised to donate half of the book's proceeds to an Antifa legal defense fund. That means Ellison not only appreciates the ideals of a terrorist organization responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages at Berkeley, but also wishes to have their activities funded.
According to Campus Reform, Bray's book "equates President Donald Trump’s ascent with the rise of fascist dictators in early twentieth century Europe" and also "makes the case that speech and democratic processes are insufficient to prevent fascists from taking power."
During a series of April 2017 interviews, Bray said that Americans should “give up on the liberal notion” of a bill of rights that permits the free speech of Nazis; basically, a long-winded variation of the latest idiom, "hate speech is not free speech" or, as Ben Shapiro discovered at Berkeley, "speech is violence." These desperate measures are important to Bray because American white supremacists are “an enemy to humanity that needs to be stopped by any means necessary.”
Even Nancy Pelosi has condemned Antifa violence; Ellison is not in line with his own superior.
