Thanks, once again, to 4Chan, the violent leftist thug who was caught on video bashing Free Speech supporters in the head with a bike lock has been identified as Eric Clanton; an instructor in Philosophy at Diablo Valley College in California who teaches — I am not making this up — “ethics, critical thinking, and comparative philosophy.”
Cowardly piece of human filth Eric Clanton is seen on video sneaking up behind a Free Speech supporters at a protest in Berkeley and bashing him on the head with a bike lock; because leftists are as cowardly as they are violent. BTW, according to his Amazon account, he ordered 14 bike locks with one day delivery shortly before the protest. (So, either he gets a lot of bikes stolen… or he was arming his fellow progressive leftists.)
Now, having been identified, will he be arrested? And if arrested, will he be prosecuted? And if prosecuted, will he receive a harsh sentence, or will he be, in the words of Obama’s mentor Bill Ayers “guilty as sin, free as a bird.” Given the cozy “no enemies on the left” attitude of Berkeley Law Enforcement (who even coordinate “symbolic arrests” with their fellow socialists), it’s not very likely.
Remember, this is California, where the criminals go free and the state prosecutes the people who expose the criminals.
In the left’s self-constructed mythology, there are no violent leftists. And when violence “happens” at a protest arranged by left-wingers, and when those who commit the violence melt effortlessly into the crowd, and when in a violent protest involving hundreds of people not a single witness comes forward from the left to identify those who committed the violence … “Why, it couldn’t be possibly be one of us who set those fires/smashed those windows/raped those women. We must have been infiltrated by right-wingers who wanted to make us peaceful progressives look bad. Yeah, that’s the ticket.”
By the way, former Democrat Party Chairman and Presidential Candidate Howard Dean says it’s OK to use violence to stop people like Ann Coulter or Ben Shapiro from speaking because “the Constitution doesn’t protect hate speech.” “Hate speech” being defined as facts and opinions that do not conform to left-wing ideology/political correctness.
UC-Berkeley, by the way, canceled an appearance by Ann Coulter claiming that it would be impossible to provide sufficient security (wink-wink). Then, they reversed and said she could come, but only at a time when classes were over and the campus was empty of students
after classes had been dismissed for summer recess. Nevertheless, Ann Coulter persisted.
