As the left continues to get more and more desperate, the supporters of the “progressive” liberal movement are now abandoning the Democrat lawmakers in droves. Too bad for liberals everywhere, their agenda just took another hit after a top Democrat decided to snap an anti-Trump selfie – and viewers were left shocked to see what he was holding.
It doesn’t take much to be a so-called “progressive” these days. In fact, all you really have to do is disagree with, attack, and argue over every little thing President Donald Trump says, despite the fact that some of Trump’s policies were formerly supported by leading Democrats. It’s nothing more than spite.
Proving just that most recently is top Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison, who thought he was being clever. Too bad for him, it seems that the anti-Trump selfie he took blew up in his face just about as quickly as he posted it.
As can be seen in the image he shared on Twitter, with the caption, “At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike (sic) fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump,” Ellison left viewers shocked as they noticed what he was holding. Come to find out, the man actually had the audacity to grab a copy of the Antifa manual before snapping the shot.

Of course, we all know that Antifa is nothing more than a bunch of sniveling brats who don’t like Trump. Wanting to stay comfortably at home in their mothers’ basements, not having to work, and wanting a socialist society, where they benefit off of the effort of others, well, let’s just say they’re not too keen on the ideas of accountability and responsibility.
However, the worst part about Antifa isn’t the fact that they’re a bunch of entitled brats, it’s that they believe they’re allowed to commit acts of violence to further their agenda. Too bad for them, that’s not the way things work here in America – and even Democrats were forced to admit that.
In fact, the idea of declaring Antifa a domestic terror organization was on the table for a while. There are even reports suggesting that the Department of Homeland Security has officially designated them as such. There was so much pressure on the group that even Democrats had to disavow them, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
However, it looks like some idiots out there didn’t get the memo and still support the “Anti-fascist” fascist group, despite them being nothing more than an often disorganized band of terrorists. Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison proved just that, but it didn’t come without consequence. Just like that, Mediaite reports that social media lit up with justified outrage:

Very clarifying to hear that you're pro-violence

The FBI and DHS consider Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Keith is a DNC official AND member of Congress. Does the @DNC now support terrorist groups? Every Democrat in Congress should have to answer for this ON the record. https://t.co/Xi49ZP1aGu

DNC co-chair and sitting congressman, Keith Ellison, known for his far-left ideology and anti-Israel views, promotes a book about #Antifa a far-left radical group that has a well-documented history of violence against political opponents. https://t.co/Z56N4kxOu8

Mark Dice may have just put it best when he said, “A terrorist manual should concern the president. Especially in the hands of a member of Congress.”

There is no excuse for violence. I don’t care who you are or what you believe, you do not have the right to put your hands on or bring harm to anyone else. Antifa wishes to justify their violence by saying that they’re acting in self-defense, but they’re perverting the meaning.
Self-defense is used in order to protect one’s life when someone else is physically attacking you and the threat is imminent. Just because your political agenda is being threatened does not give you the right to lash out like a child and start hitting people.
The fact that some Democrat lawmakers still support this mentality is enough to leave just about anyone shaking their heads – especially considering the fact that they like to pretend to be morally superior to everyone else.
In the end, the only reason someone would stoop to such lows is for one reason and one reason only – they’re losing. The left knows it, and now, we know that leading Democrats know it as well as we watch them flounder for support anywhere they can get it — even if it’s from terrorist groups. They better buckle up. Things are only going to get worse from here.
