Jeremiah Ellison, Son of Minnesota AG, Declares 'Support for Antifa'

Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D), declared his support for Antifa on Sunday after President Donald Trump announced that the United States will declare the radical far-left group a terrorist organization.

“I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA,” Ellison, a Minneapolis city council member, wrote on social media.

President Trump’s declaration earlier came amid ongoing mass protests and violent unrest in response to the death of George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee onto his neck while in custody.

Following the president’s announcement, Attorney General William Barr said in a statement: “The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison once tweeted support for Antifa — the so-called “anti-fascist” group that many blame for the ongoing riots in Minneapolis and elsewhere following the killing of George Floyd last week.
