Antifa Teacher Ordered To Pay Thousands In Damages

Published

on

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 TheBlazeLet’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.”

Christian College Goes Back On Ben Shapiro Ban

Published

on

Gonzaga’s College Republicans had tried to invite Shapiro to campus, but the school said “Mr. Shapiro’s appearances routinely draw protests that include extremely divisive and hateful speech and behavior, which is offensive to many people, regardless of their age, politics or beliefs,” reported Campus Reform.

Yeah but is it Ben who creates the “divisive and hateful speech and behavior” or petulant, progressive crybullies? The school also went on to say it stood with “vulnerable members” of the campus and insinuated that an event featuring Shapiro would contradict the teachings of Jesus. I don’t think they’re talking about Ben being Jewish there.

So, that was back in November. Gonzaga conducted a risk assessment in January and the school president announced this month that Shapiro could come, but gave three conditions, reported Campus Reform. The College Republicans have to work with one of the VPs. OK, that doesn’t sound too bad. Next, the group has to charge attendees for tickets to help with the security cost. Well, as long as there are no insane security fees deliberately hiked to stop the event from happening, that should be fine too. And third, Shapiro has to respect Gonzaga’s mission statement.

This last one could also be a bit — I hate this word — problematic. As you might guess, Gonzaga’s mission statement is chock-full of vague platitudes and, at one point, it explicitly says “the Gonzaga experience fosters a mature commitment to dignity of the human person, social justice, [and] diversity.”

Yeah I don’t think Ben’s message is going to fit too cleanly in those last two categories. And there you are: perfect pretext for Gonzaga to kick Ben out to appease progressive journos or simply out of spite towards some of those thought criminals in the College Republicans. You can’t trust these guys as far as you can throw them. I mean figuratively throw them — with free speech. Don’t sue me for incitement to violence, fam.

University Employees Stealing GOP Signs?

Published

on

State University of New York New Paltz professor Laura Ebert is facing a larceny misdemeanor charge after a video appeared to show her removing GOP signs from a lawn, according to Campus Reform.

The professor said:

“I meant no personal harm, and don’t know the person whose lawn the sign was on. I have family I love that support Trump, so I was after the sign, not the person….I did it in a moment of weakness and high emotion.”

An an anti-Trump professor acting out of weakness and high emotion? You don’t say. And Laura wasn’t the only university employee messing with signs. Melissa Link, who serves as a managing editor of the environment and ethics over at the University of Georgia, also allegedly tore down GOP signs in her neck of the woods, reported Campus Reform.

She claimed it’s illegal to put political signs on road median strips, on roadsides, and grass separating the sidewalk from the road.

“If you see these [signs], please call ACC Code Enforcement at 706-613-3790 or feel free to rip them up yourself for proper disposal because they are considered litter,” she said. “Republican campaigns are infamous for lining roadsides near polling places with signs in the wee hours of the morning. This is illegal but not unexpected, they know they can’t win without cheating.”

Well, it turns out that neither the Official Code of Georgia, nor the municipal code for that Georgia county authorize random civilians to tear down signs. Now, some people might think it’s petty to hold university employees accountable for vandalizing signs or charging with battery individuals like Florida State student Shelby Shoup, who apparently worked on Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum’s campaign, threw chocolate milk on College Republicans, and kicked over a GOP sign.

But REMEMBER: the left has no qualms with holding THEIR political opponents’ feet to the fire over harmless jokes or not keeping up with the new term for “illegal alien.” Why not hold them accountable for actual crimes?

Twitter Suspends ‘White Genocide’ Prof For Celebrating Stabbing

Published

on

Remember George Ciccariello-Maher, the professor who tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide”? Well, he made a return to Twitter prominence last week, celebrating the stabbing of right-wing Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who’s been called the “Trump of Brazil.” You have to wonder if comments like these are why Georgie doesn’t seem to have a job anymore. Let’s take a look.

In one of the few instances of Twitter holding the far-left to account, former Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher got suspended last week after saying “I was having a good day, and then fascist Jair Bolsonaro got stabbed…so now I’m having a *great* day.” It seems like Twitter suspended the former professor for 12 hours or fewer for “glorifying violence.” “We prohibit content that condones or celebrates acts of violence that could promote imitation of the act.”

George first came into the spotlight two years ago when he said “all I want for Christmas is white genocide,” which apparently was supposed to mock people who believe in white genocide, but he was still teaching at Drexel when, after the Las Vegas massacre last year, he said “white people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don’t get what they want,” reported The Daily Caller.

Ciccariello-Maher, who has since left both Drexel and New York University, has drawn a genius comparison between the national anthem and the Nazi salute and tweeted optimistically about a little kid beating a pinata of an ICE officer.

Don’t recall there being a Twitter suspension for THAT one, but good on Twitter for taking action this time, I guess? Personally, I’d rather have as few restrictions on speech as possible, but if the left is playing dirty in the culture war by stoking outrage to silence dissent, it might be time to fight fire with fire.
