Democrats and liberal media have already dismissed the concept of radical leftists or Antifa being at the Capitol protest, that all the people there were Trump supporters.


But as we reported, that’s not exactly true.

What is true was there was at least some radical leftist presence there among the Trump supporters. What they did or what influence they may have had in the action is not clear.

BLM protest organizer John Sullivan who frequently posted with BLM and Antifa hashtags was there at the doors to the Speaker’s Lobby next to Ashli Babbitt when she was shot. In fact, some of the video we’ve seen of the shooting was shot by him. Sullivan claims he was just there “documenting” which liberal media has simply accepted, although according to Fox he admits he climbed through a window to get inside. CNN even had him on air to talk about it.

He had previously been arrested at a violent BLM protest that ended up with someone being shot in Utah. In August in Washington, D.C., he called for ripping President Donald Trump from the White House.


From Fox News:

In August 2020 remarks to a small crowd at a Washington, D.C., intersection, Sullivan pointed to the nearby White House and unleashed a torrent of violent rhetoric. “We … about to burn this s— down,” he said. “We gotta … rip Trump right out of that office right there,” he continued, adding, “We ain’t about … waiting until the next election.” He then led the crowd in a chant of, “It’s time for revolution.”

His group even sells black bloc gear on its website.

According to media, Sullivan was detained after the Capitol protest but was then released.


So it’s interesting that some folks were arrested but not Sullivan who was so visible and went on television.

We wrote about how the NY Post said law enforcement sources told them there were at least two Antifa folks from New York in the crowd. Now, Fox correspondent Aishah Hasnie is also saying that she was told by an NYPD source that Antifa folks were identified in the crowd by undercovers.
