Dershowitz on DNC Vote: Ellison’s Defeat Is Win in ‘War Against Bigotry’

One of the leading figures in the Democratic Party is taking heat on social media for proudly touting the violent far-left group Antifa.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who serves as DNC deputy chair, tweeted a picture to promote a book called”Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook.”

The sentiment is not shared by other Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whocondemned violent elements within Antifa, saying violent protesters should be arrested.

“Youre not talking about the far left of the Democratic Party theyre not even Democrats,” Pelosi told the Denver Post editorial board. “A lot of them are socialists or anarchists or whatever.”

Ellison, who lost a close race last year to Tom Perez for leadership of the DNC, was skewered on Twitter for posting the photo.

On Fox Business Network, Democrat and author Doug Schoen said he wishes Ellison would “go away,” but fears Ellison will do the opposite and run for Al Franken’s Senate seat in Minnesota.

“He stands for everything I do not believe and I think is wrong about the Democratic Party,” said Schoen.

He also noted the anti-Israel views espoused by Ellison, who in 2007 became the first Muslim-American to be elected to Congress.
