Antifa Leader John Earle Sullivan, who was recorded inciting rioters to breach the US Capitol Building is back in custody after violating his conditions of release. The Salt Lake Tribune wrote, “In a court document filed last week, U.S. Pretrial Services Officer Josh Cahoon alleged that Sullivan violated his approved Internet usage on four separate instances.”
Fox News reported,
“The terms of his release agreement required Sullivan to stay off social media before trial, surrender his passport and be on house arrest. He also was ordered to stop working for the Insurgence USA activist group he founded, although he didn’t have to cede control. His computer and internet activities would be monitored.”
A Little History of the Antifa Poster Child
Sullivan was initially released by police when he stated that he was merely recording the events within the capitol, he was later arrested after video (now purged from the internet) showed him admitting to breaking windows and doing other damage inside the capitol.
In the video according to FBI Documents “after the crowd broke through the last barricade, and as SULLIVAN and the others approach the Capitol Building, SULLIVAN can be heard in the video saying at various points: ‘There are so many people. Let’s go. This s— is ours! F— yeah,’ ‘We accomplished this s—. We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history,’ and ‘Let’s burn this s— down.’”

A Different Set of Rules for an Antifa Leader
Leftists like Sullivan were released from jail without even needing to post bail while others like Jacob Chansley aka “Buffalo Man” or the “Q Shaman” are held without possibility of bail. Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah released Mr. Sullivan despite objections of the prosecution saying that they failed to produce enough proof. Hopefully Judge Oberg, who isn’t the first judge we’ve seen play it soft with BLM/Antifa, doesn’t need any additional evidence that Mr. Sullivan has no interest in changing his ways and this time, he stays behind bars. It’s becoming painfully apparent that Antifa & BLM are playing by a completely different set of rules now.
