Senator Tim Kaine has released a statement denouncing the violence of the alt-left terrorist organization Antifa.
“I condemn all violence at any political demonstration, including any violent activities by members of Antifa,” wrote Senator Kaine in a letter to independent journalist Remso W. Martinez.
DNC deputy chairman Keith Ellison tweeted a photo in support of Antifa on January 3. On January 20, New York City police arrested Antifa terrorist David Campbell for brutally attacking a 56-year-old man for attending “A Night For Freedom,” a party featuring popular libertarian and right-wing speakers including Mike Cernovich, Gavin McInnes, and Stefan Molyneux.
The Gateway Pundit reported on January 30 that not one Senate Democrat condemned or disavowed Ellison, his endorsement of Antifa, or even Antifa’s terrorist acts when asked for comment by Remso W. Martinez.
Notably, the one Senator to finally condemn Antifa’s violence has a son that was arrested after his involvement in an Antifa-like attack.
Senator Kaine’s son Linwood Michael Kaine was arrested for joining in an anti-Trump riot to attack supporters of President Donald Trump in March in Minnesota.
“The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects our freedom of speech, press, assembly, petition, and religion, but it does not protect violence or intimidating others into forfeiting their rights,” wrote Senator Kaine in his condemnation of Antifa. His full letter is below.
Antifa has been responsible for multiple acts of domestic terrorism across the United States, including the brutal attack with a bike lock on a Donald Trump supporter by Eric Clanton. Antifa was already registered as a domestic terrorist organization by the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security when Ellison tweeted his Antifa handbook selfie.
The question now is, will the rest of the Democrats condemn Antifa violence as well, or do they stand in support of Keith Ellison and alt-left terrorism?
