Fascism means never having to say you’re sorry: Eric Clanton, the fascist masked antifa protester who used a bike lock to smash conservative protesters on the head has struck a deal with Berkeley prosecutors that dismisses most of the charges against him and subjects him merely to three years prohibition.
Eric Clanton had been linked by police to violent assaults with a metal bike lock during a “free speech” rally in Berkeley on April 15, 2017. Before his arrest, Clanton had been “outed” online, on the website 4chan, as someone who used a bike lock to strike a man in the head. The assault was captured in a video clip that drew widespread attention and anger after it was posted on YouTube.
Wednesday, Clanton was supposed to have had his preliminary hearing, where a judge decides whether there’s enough evidence in a case for it to move ahead to trial. Instead, there was no hearing, and information about Clanton’s plea deal became available online.
According to Alameda County Superior Court records, Clanton entered a “no contest” plea Wednesday to one misdemeanor battery charge. The felony charges against him were dismissed, and an allegation that he had caused serious bodily injury was stricken. A misdemeanor charge that Clanton wore a mask during the commission of the crime also was dropped.
I am not surprised. Leftists are never called to account for their evil acts, no matter how well documented. Clanton has temporarily lost his college teaching job, but don’t worry for him. I am sure some college will soon hire him. He has all the right qualifications!
And if you doubt the evil that this man did, watch the video at the link. Though it is difficult to identify him in that clip, other evidence links him to this violent act of smashing another person in the head with a bike lock.
Three years from now, when his prohibition ends, I am sure he will be out there again, using violence to attack anyone who disagrees with him. And don’t be surprised if he comes for you next:
