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:

    This kinda cements the belief that there are two categories of justice. Strict adherence to the law for the right and wrist-slapping for the left.

    Based Stickman didn’t get off this easily and he was just defending himself from these black shirt Democrats. In fact, his daughter was also punished by the California college system.

    Hopefully, there will be civil action taken by Clanton’s victim. Not sure why he wasn’t prosecuted with attempted murder or whatever the equivalent charge is in California because hitting someone in the head with dense metal objects has a high likelihood of death or life altering injuries.

    I present two examples.

    1. Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago. https://youtu.be/eHa3_plFRzw


    2. Chris Cuomo, CNN talking head and opinionator. https://youtu.be/iaWo03PtUl4

    Listen to both grown and Liberal even leftist men, shining examples of Democrat leadership. One is weak as toilet water, a politically empowered but auto castrated Liberal “man” Mayor and identifies everything that is wrong with the morals of the citizens of Chicago who kill with abandon their fellow Chiagonians (?) but will do absolutely nothing related to proactive policing to confront this genocide. “Its their fault, what can I do about it?” A complete surrendering of his fiduciary responsibilities. He must be rejected and dismissed with extreme prejudice.

    And the other a CNN political dynasty son of the Left gives reason and purpose and even a moral defense to the violent actions of the members of ANTIFA. He has chosen a side and in his opinion ANTIFA and what it does is fully justified, no matter what harm or violence they do. Really? He also needs to be dismissed with extreme prejudice.

    Both of these American men in positions of power and influence are the problem with America. They by their commentary and actions promote violence, chaos and the destruction of America and I have to ask: To be rebuilt in what form? Socialist? Communist? Worse?

    So when Trump says” The media is the enemy of the American people” he is absolutely correct because he means people like this man / boy Mayor, Rahm Emanuel and the CNN opinionator Chris Cuomo. The First Amendment is going nowhere, who needs to go are these enemies of the people who pose as leaders and informed moral judges.
