Remember Yvette Felarca, the Antifa middle school teacher who, despite her own small stature, seems to think might makes right? You know, the one who tries to recruit her middle school students for protests and who’s had four different criminal cases levied against her? Well, she now has a reason to obey the law…an $11,000 reason, to be precise.
The Superior Court of Alameda County ordered Felarca to pay $11,000 for the attorney fees of Troy Worden, the former president of UC Berkeley’s College Republicans, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation. Felarca had previously filed for a restraining order against Worden but dropped the case before its completion.
Commissioner Thomas Rasch of the court said Felarca had not filed for the order “in good faith,” according to Campus Reform. Meanwhile, Harmeet Dhillon of Dhillon Law, the firm representing Worden, said “This marks the second time in two months that Felarca and her lawyers have been ordered by an area court to pay the attorney fees of their opponents for filing legally and factually unsupported claims in court. True victims of harassment/stalking/assault need the courts to be available to them as a priority, not clogged with fabricated claims pursued in bad faith.”
Meanwhile, Felarca’s attorney, Shanta Driver, said that the commissioner’s decision “says to every woman out there that if you file for a restraining order, and don’t pursue the case, you are subject to these court fees. We can’t have this message given to women, especially now when there are the beginnings of a period where women feel they can go forward against men harassing them, stalking them, using their power over women,” reported My San Antonio.
Right, but how many of those harassed women punched innocent people and defended a riot costing $100,000 as a reasonable response to a controversial speaker.
Let’s not forget that Felarca, who teaches at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, transported students to protests with permission from parents who did not have a firm grasp on English and “did not fully understand that this was not a school approved trip” or that there would be danger, as reported TheBlaze. Let’s not forget that Felarca’s own principal banned her from taking students to another Berkeley rally, saying “it was an opportunity for [Felarca] to indoctrinate students and use them to support [her] own political agenda.” But let’s also not forget that justice typically does get served, particularly if you’re representing a group the US government has finally outright labeled “domestic terrorists.”
‘Antifa’ Throws Eggs, Drink At Pro-Trump YouTubers And Bystander
An individual threw eggs at Dion Thompson and Saleem Juma, the pro-Trump hosts of YouTube channel Operation Cold Front, reported Campus Reform. And one guy who got hit in the head wasn’t even a Trump supporter, but just a student who was talkingwith the duo.
The YouTube hosts got more eggs and a drink thrown at them in other instances.
The violence starts with food and drinks, but once that’s normalized, gets a lot worse. In fact, it already has: Remember Andy Ngo in Portland? How about Hayden Williams at Berkeley?
The YouTubers believe that the individuals who attacked them were linked to Anifa, claiming that Antifa-related accounts had spread their location.
And this isn’t the first time Operation Cold Front has had its events disrupted by left-wing agitators. The two YouTubers were giving a speech to the University of Washington College Republicans when an alleged Antifa member apparently tried to use a chain to lock them in the room.
Police cited that 18-year-old, Ezra Benner, for disorderly conduct, but the prosecuting attorney’s office dropped the charge, saying that it was unlikely it would be able to prove the crime “beyond a reasonable doubt.” So if you stop these guys from committing a crime, there might not be enough evidence to prosecute. And if they do successfully assault you, they stillmight get off the hook without any felonies. How’s that for justice?
Pro-Trump Student Stripped Of Beauty Crown For Being ‘Offensive’
Kathy Zhu, a student, pro-Trump political commentator, and Miss Michigan 2019, got a bit of a surprise last week. It looks like the state director of Miss World America texted her, asking her not to post to social media.
A little while later, Kathy apparently got this email, saying “it has been brought to the attention of Miss World America (MWA) that your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate content,” claiming Kathy violated its “good character” contest requirement. “Effective immediately, [Miss World America] does not recognize you as a participant of any sort or in any capacity as it relates to any and all events of MWA.”
Now, it doesn’t look like MWA specifically referenced the hijab incident to Kathy, but the state director does seem to have taken issue with a tweet in which Kathy said “Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”
Well, that does seem to be statistically accurate. The FBI reported in 2015 that 2,380 out of 2,664 black homicides were done by black people, or around 89%. You can also see that 2,574 of 3,167 white homicides were done by whites, or about 81%.
So the most you could say is that Kathy was right about black-on-black homicide, but could’ve also mentioned that the same is almost as true for whites. The tweet didn’t sit well with the MWA state director, however, who said “that is not a statistic. It’s a comment with no statistics to back it up.”
Well, if the comment’s right, and she simply didn’t include a link or exact figures, doesn’t stripping Kathy of her crown seem like a BIT of an overreaction?
Hockey Coach: If You Plan On Disrespecting Anthem, ‘Get The F*** Out Now’
John Krupinsky, coach of the Danbury Hat Tricks, a team in the US Federal Hockey League, told his players that if they were going to disrespect the American or Canadian national anthem, they could “get the f*** out now.”
Now I wanted to discuss this on Campus Unmasked for two reasons. One, this is the first time I’ve really seen cultural pressure in this direction from someone in the sport. Sure, you have President Trump blasting people who disrespect the flag, but when it comes to those who are actually in the athletic community, we only seem to hear about those kneel like Colin Kaepernick or those who refuse to go to the White House like Megan Rapinoe, never someone patriotic.
And two, we’ve covered similar stories here on Campus Unmasked. Speaking of Kaepernick, there was that whole Nike fiasco during which a Georgetown professor compared the Betsy Ross flag to a burning cross and swastika. You’ve also had a Texas student government president covering the American flag with a Black Lives Matter one. And you had the UVA basketball coach who denied a visit to the White House after the circulation of an anti-Trump petition with thousands of signatures.
Back to the hockey coach, he recently spoke to my team over at Campus Reform about what seems to be a growing anti-American sentiment in the education system.
