Faceless, nameless, leaderless, these are some of the qualities that typically come to mind when discussing Antifa. But the vigilante men in black have documented supporters in academia.
Stanford professor David Palumbo-Liu and Purdue professor Bill Mullen started the Campus Antifascist Network to “stem the rise of fascism, whether proudly displayed in hateful exclusionary slogans and posters, or disguised as ‘free speech.'”
The Campus Antifascist Network lists endorsements from around 30 organizations and 50 individuals. If you scroll down, you’ll see a law professor, a few sociology professors, and several English professors. But disciplines such as science, technology, engineering, and math do not seem to be represented.
There are some pretty famous — or infamous — scholars on the list. There’s George Ciccariello-Maher, the “white genocide” Drexel University professor who said the Las Vegas massacre is what happens when white people don’t get what they want.
There’s Sujata Moori, the Middlebury College professor who teaches Playing Dead: Feminist Readings Of Crime Drama, a very useful class definitely worth your tuition money to learn how to apply “a feminist lens” to “explore the grammar of this genre in terms of race, class, gender, and sexuality.”
There’s also Johnny E. Williams, the Trinity College professor who called white people “inhuman a**holes” and said “let them f***ing die.” Williams shared an article describing how “a lesbian black woman helped take down the man who shot Steve Scalise.” The article suggests that purported “victims of bigotry” should not help defend alleged “oppressors.”
Palumbo-Liu, one of the professors who founded Campus Antifascist Network, frames his vision for the group as one of “defense in various forms of those who are being threatened by fascists,” but who is a fascist and what constitutes a threat? It’s precisely this nebulous language that allows Antifa to justify responding to“hate speech” or some kind of “verbal violence” with actual, physical violence.
Feminist Prof STILL Loose After Assault?
YouTuber Jeremy Hambly was apparently punched in the head multiple times by Matthew Fantastic Loter, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Matt reportedly came up to Jeremy at a bar near a gaming conference and, upon confirming who he was, started punching Jeremy while screaming “I’m going to fucking kill you.” Jeremy said it took four people to pull him off, at which point the YouTuber ran into a bar. Matt allegedly smashed one of the bar’s windows and then took off.
Now, Matt is president of Prettiest Princess Games, but he was also, at least until recently, a professor at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.
Quinnipiac’s VP for public affairs told me “the person in question is not on our faculty and does not teach here.”
While it’s been nearly two weeks and Matt still hasn’t been arrested, one glimmer of hope in this case is the waves of support Jeremy’s received. He’s raised over $27,000 on gofundme for legal fees so far. But remember: Jeremy has more than a hundred thousand YouTube subscribers. How many people don’t have these massive platforms and have nowhere to turn for support after getting punched by one of these ruthless ideologues? And lest you’re one of those “sunlight is the best disinfectant” folks, remember what happened last week when California dropped all felony assault charges against bike lock professor Eric Clanton, giving him only three years of probation.
That was a highly-publicized case with video evidence but still, no justice.
Terrorist Reading At Pro-Palestinian Student Event
A pro-Palestinian student group hosted an event Saturday comparing Palestinian liberation to black American liberation, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation. That’s “intersectionality” for you — let’s erase and collapse context, history, and all of that nonsense because all we need is oppressor and oppressed. But perhaps a bit more concerning is that the students at this event will apparently read something written by an officer of a designated terrorist group.
Temple University’s Students for Justice in Palestine chapter looks like a pretty diverse bunch. And I know you’re thinking that diversity is typically code for anti-white these days but it looks like these students also support diversity of ideas or rather, one specific idea to be exact: terrorism.
You see, Temple’s SJP chapter hosted an event called “Palestine & Black America: A Strategy for Liberation” and I guess I’m not sure what the message is behind that title. You want a separate Palestinian state…does that mean you also want a black American ethnostate? Sounds pretty racist to me. Around 50 individuals apparently attended and read from Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton, as well as Ahmad Sa’adat, who’s the secretary general for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine or PFLP.
You know, the same PFLP that the US lists as a terrorist group. The same PFLP that murdered more than 100 individuals, including children, with suicide bombers during the Second Intifada. The same PFLP that killed five Jewish synagogue worshipers and a police officer in 2014. And the same PFLP that has been doing these things for a little while now, slaughtering over two dozen people at an airport in 1972.
Wew lad, talk about bad optics.
Antifa Bike Lock Prof Not Going To Prison
Professor Eric Clanton will receive only three years of probation — in addition to four days he previously served in jail — after reportedly bludgeoning at least seven people, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The investigation into Professor Eric Clanton is one of the most impressive feats of citizen journalism in the digital age. Users of that delightfully devilish site 4Chan looked at images of the bike lock attacker’s facial structure, clothing, and backpack straps and matched them up with those of Eric Clanton. Police arrested Clanton about a month later and the professor was charged with a simple battery misdemeanor, a felony for causing great bodily injury, three felony assaults with a deadly weapon, and another misdemeanor for wearing a mask to avoid getting identified while committing a crime.
Now, Clanton was facing up to 11 years in prison for these charges. But, get this: California entered into a plea deal with Clanton in which the state dropped all of the felony assault charges in exchange for Clanton pleading “no contest” to the simple battery misdemeanor. Clanton is only getting three years on probation. He already served those four days of confinement.
Remember, this is a guy who, according to police, had bludgeoned at least seven people with a bike lock.
What’s the point of unmasking these criminals if the systems we have in place to punish them refuse to do so, whether out of simple corruption or out of a desire to protect the bad guys, so long as they have the right politics?
