Far-Left Antifa/BLM activist John Sullivan has been identified as one of the activists who were part of the group of people who illegally entered the Capitol building on Wednesday. Sullivan is not, however, a Trump supporter, in fact, he’s just the opposite. On his Instagram page that has now been deleted, the BLM activist who is also the self-proclaimed founder of the “Insurgence USA” group, posted warnings like “An armed revolution is the only effective way to bring about change.”
Only 6 months ago, extreme BLM activist and Antifa leader Sullivan was arrested during a protest he organized. He was also caught on video standing next to a fellow protester who shot an innocent woman.
Sullivan was arrested and was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of rioting, making a threat of violence and criminal mischief. Sullivan was an organizer of a protest in Provo, UT, where an innocent motorist who was trying to get around Sullivan’s roadblock/protest, was shot.
The Deseret News reports- John Earle Sullivan, 25, of Sandy, was captured on video threatening to beat a woman in an SUV, according to the affidavit, and then kicking her door, leaving a dent.
Sullivan was seen with Jesse Taggart — the man charged with shooting the motorist — throughout the protest, the affidavit states.
“As a protest organizer, John Sullivan is heard talking about seeing the shooting, looking at the gun and seeing smoke coming from it. John did not condemn the attempted murder nor attempt to stop it nor aide in its investigation by police.”
Sullivan’s Instagram page is filled with activist posts that contain language like “F*ck Trump.”
In a now-deleted video from his Instagram account, Sullivan identifies himself as “John Sullivan of Salt Lake City, Utah, and part of Insurgence USA” Near the end of the video, Sullivan tells the crowd, ““We gotta f***ing rip Trump right outta that office!” telling the crowd they need to take action against Trump now, “No, no—we ain’t’ about waitin’ until the next election, we’re abu0t to go get that motherf*cker!”
The Instagram post has now been deleted, although we have a screen recorded copy. We’ve also located his speech from another angle that was posted on Rumble:
Sullivan is also the self-described founder of the Insurgence USA group. On their website, they provide a handy little guide on how to be an Anarchist. The guide explains how to disregard previous and predictable strategies, and instead, to use “guerilla tactics to overwhelm your adversary.” Hmmm…that almost sounds like what happened at the White House?
Strangely, when CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Sullivan, he never mentioned his recent criminal history, his threats of preventing President Trump from serving a second term, including “ripping” him from the White House, or the radical group he founded that supports Anarchy and an armed revolution.
Meet BLM criminal John Sullivan was arrested for threats and violence against conservatives in Utah!
John was interviewed on CNN about the film he took inside the CAPITOL of Ashli Babbit lying in a pool of blood dying – WHY was he there?

But getting organized doesn’t mean joining a pre-existing institution and taking orders. It shouldn’t mean forfeiting your agency and intelligence to become a cog in a machine. From an anarchist perspective, organizational structure should maximize both freedom and voluntary coordination at every level of scale, from the smallest group up to society as a whole.
This leaderless format has proven effective for guerrilla activities of all kinds, as well as what the RAND Corporation calls “swarming” tactics in which many unpredictable autonomous groups overwhelm a centralized adversary. You should go to every demonstration in an affinity group, with a shared sense of your goals and capabilities. If you are in an affinity group that has experience taking action together, you will be much better prepared to deal with emergencies and make the most of unexpected opportunities.
If every individual in every action against the state and status quo participated as part of a tight-knit, dedicated affinity group, the revolution would be accomplished in a few short years.
Here’s a nifty little video from the Insurgence USA site, with a partial transcript. We’re no voice experts, but Sullivan may be the male voice heard in the video, as his voice sounds very similar in the Instagram videos and the video below.
“Whether Trump tries to steal the election or Biden wins, and tries to continue the same policies— let’s get together to stop it!
Only popular resistance has set a limit to what Trump can do.
Imagine what would have happened if protesters had not filled the streets. If antifascists had not shut down white supremacists.
It’s up to us to prevent a second Trump term, regardless of media disinformation—regardless of Democrat’s willingness to cede power.
Rather than focusing on symbolic marches, go where your actions will exert the most pressure.
Be careful not to prevent a vulnerable target to far-right vigilantes.
This is not just about Trump or about preserving democracy. If Biden wins there will still be police…”
But wait, there’s more…
One of John’s Instagram friends, who goes by “lefty_boogy,” on Instagram and “liked” one of his posts, posted a call to fellow radicals notice on Instagram to rally them to DC on January 6 during Trump’s rally. He asked them to meet at the Black Lives Matter Plaza. The notification asks activists to bring “tactical gear, bulletproof vests–no firearms unless you are licensed. In his comment section “lefty_boogy” says, “Fight back. —Also if u can’t bring a gun I recommend knifes and pepper spray.
Here’s the post that “lefty_boogy” on Sullivan’s post:
We hear quite a bit about the “Trump supporters” who overtook the Capitol building in a siege on Wednesday. What we don’t hear about are actual members of Antifa and BLM who were part of the insurgents who made their way into the Capitol building. Did Sullivan encourage Trump supporters to follow him into the Capitol building as part of his plan for a “revolution?” Why was he standing next to Ashli Babbit when she was shot? So many unanswered questions—so little curiosity from our Democrat Party media.
