Journos Drool Over Berkeley Student Who Said ‘God Bless Antifa’

Published

Police charged UC Berkeley student Ismael Chamu with felony vandalism after he and another student allegedly defaced cars and fences with messages like “f*** the police,” “f*** white people,” “class war,” “kill cops,” “kill yuppies,” and “eat the rich,” as reported by our friends over at Far Left Watch.

“Private property must be destroyed; bars and hipster shops need to be removed; Google satellite offices must be burned, and Google buses need to be slashed,” said Chamu in an April 2017 blog entitled Dialogue Will Not Save Our Hoods.

Chamu found himself the subject of a flattering LA Times article Sunday entitled “He attends elite UC Berkeley but lives in a trailer with no heat or sewer hookups. Soon, he’ll be scrambling to find new shelter.” Forty-plus paragraphs and no mention of his vandalism charges or Antifa endorsement. LA Times and New York Times journos took to Twitter, calling Chamu “a remarkable young man” and saying his “grit and determination” “is jaw-dropping.” LA Times updated the piece Monday with a short segment on his vandalism charges and their spokeswoman told me “the arrest was not intentionally left out of the story.”

Christian Student Senator Refuses To Resign

Published

on

Isabella Chow was the only UC Berkeley student senator not to vote “yes” on a resolution condemning Trump’s proposal to change Title IX so that gender is the same as biological sex, according to Campus Reform.

She didn’t vote against the resolution, but simply abstained from voting, saying “I cannot vote for this bill without compromising my values and my responsibility to the community that elected me to represent them. As a Christian, I personally do believe that certain acts and lifestyles conflict with what is good, right and true.”

Now Isabella said she opposed discrimination and harassment and, provided that’s true, this seems to be a case of actions speak louder than words because think about it: what exactly is the proposed Title IX change going to do? Cut down bureaucracy. The government typically only keeps track of people’s immutable characteristics or things that can be objectively determined, like race, age, income, etc. Biological sex is one of those; you’re either a man or a woman. Asking the government to account for self-determined gender identity is kind of like asking it to account for personality: it’s messy and open to interpretation.

But back to Berkeley. Isabella’s own party, the Student Action group at UC Berkeley, wasn’t too pleased with the student’s choice to sit that vote out. It said “as a party, we are committed to ensuring that the rights and dignity of the Queer and Trans community on this campus are guaranteed. As a party, we are committed to establishing and defending access to reproductive health services….That is why we, as a party have resolved to part ways with ASUC Senator Isabella Chow.”

There have been calls for Isabella to resign from student government. The student senator refused and tried to submit an op-ed to the campus paper to explain her point of view. But The Daily Californian said her piece “utilized rhetoric that is homophobic and transphobic by the Daily Cal’s standards.” When Isabella asked how she could modify it, the paper said that “the submission as a whole doesn’t meet the newspaper’s editorial standards.”

You know, standards like providing a platform only to progressive orthodoxy.

UC Berkeley Defends Illegal Immigrant Student

Published

on

Border Patrol agents recently arrested a University of California, Berkeley student by the name of Luis Mora. Mora is an illegal alien and one who is not eligible for Barack Obama’s DACA program, reported Campus Reform. He awaits a bond hearing next Wednesday.

Let’s take a look at some of the harsh realities. Mora is an illegal alien adult who hopes to go to law school, yet can’t be trusted to follow the law himself. He also has his university, Berkeley, acting as his own personal PR agent. School chancellor Carol Christ links to a fundraiser for Mora’s bail, which is sitting at over 12,000 out of $15,000 and makes this statement:

“The university is currently working to ensure that the student has access to legal advice, attorney services and other resources necessary to mount what we hope will be a successful effort to end this detention….We have no intention of backing down from our fundamental commitment to justice and equity.”

Equity, as we know, is Newspeak for equality of outcome. And make no mistake, Christ isn’t talking about justice as in the law. No, this is social justice, a system in which Mora infringing upon the rights of the nation by living there illegally somehow means that he is the victim, he is the poor, oppressed little angel who must be helped at the expense of others. Justice here probably means he keeps the UC Berkeley spot your kid was denied…oh, and likely a job to boot down the line.

Let’s have a look at Mora’s lawyer Prerna Lal — who self-identifies as “queer.” Lal is employed by UC Berkeley as a law school supervisor and an immigration attorney for Berkeley’s undocumented student program. Taxpayer funded university, remember folks. Here’s some of the casual racism on his/her/its/XIRS Twitter feed: When talking about a potential nuclear apocalypse, “Ha! But there will be no white people. Win!” “Lessons from Quantico: don’t trust white men!” Responding to who in her community she’d bargain away, guess who: “white people.” Saying Charlottesville isn’t surprising because “in a way, white Americans are the original Nazis.” Would this be acceptable if said about any other race?

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.”
