In endorsing Antifa, Ellison is expressing support for a group whose activity have been formally classified by the Department of Homeland Security as “domestic terrorism”.
As Politico reports, “By April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets.” According to a senior state law enforcement official, “A whole bunch of them” have been deemed dangerous enough to be placed on U.S. terrorism watch lists.”
