Police arrest Calif. ethics prof. Eric Clanton for Antifa bikelock assaults at Berkeley protest

On Saturday, April 15, 2017, in Civic Center Park of Berkeley, California, a Patriots Rally by Trump supporters, including members of Oathkeepers, turned violent when radical leftists in black masks and black clothing, who call themselves Antifa (anti-fascists), launched a counter-rally and clashed with the patriots.

In a memo to Berkeley mayor and the City Council on the April 15 demonstration, Berkeley police chief Andrew Greenwood identified the Antifa as the instigators of violence. Greenwood wrote:

“On April 15, groups initially remained separated in the park. At one point, about three dozen ‘antifa’ entered the park over fencing, ultimately confronting demonstrators, and escalating violence, with fights and assaults breaking out.”

The day ended with eleven people being injured and the arrest of 20 people “for their roles in the violence at Civic Center Park”. The charges included assault with a deadly weapon, battery, and committing a criminal offense while wearing a mask. Authorities said at the time that they will pursue additional arrests as they “review social media and video footage”. (Source: Berkeleyside)

Meanwhile, citizen journalists and sleuths went to work, combing through videos and photos of the violent clash to unmask the Antifa thugs.

On April 19, five days after the clash, online sleuths of 4chan‘s /pol/ News Network and Rebel Media correspondent Jack Posobiec identified one of the masked Antifa rioters who had assaulted people with a bike-lock as a California college professor named Eric Clanton.

Among the people Clanton had assaulted with a bikelock on April 15 was this man in a red t-shirt (see below).

Here’s a video explaining how 4chan sleuths identified Eric Clanton as the bikelock thug:

Clanton claims to have an M.A. in Philosophy from San Francisco State University, and a B.A. in Philosophy from California State University, Bakersfield.

Clanton had taught philosophy at San Francisco State University. At the time of the April 15 riot, he was teaching at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA. Ironically, one of his teaching and research subjects is ethics.

His faculty profile at Diablo Valley College, now taken down, said:

Eric Clanton

Faculty – Philosophy, Pleasant Hill Campus

Eric has been teaching at DVC since 2015. He teaches introduction to philosophy with a background in teaching ethics, critical thinking, and comparative philosophy East/West. His primary research interests are ethics and politics. His work in political philosophy also centers on mass incarceration and the prison system. He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.

After he was outed online, Clanton panicked. He scrubbed his social media, went underground and, pretending to ask for a friend, sought legal advice on Reddit (source: Dark Triad Man):

“My really good friend is being accused on social media of attacking someone at a protest and now his name is being smeared on social media. Does he have any recourse and can he be in any legal (civil or criminal) trouble because of these rumors?”

Yesterday, May 24, 2017, Berkeley police finally arrested Eric Clanton.

From Berkeleyside:

“Eric Clanton, a former teacher at Diablo Valley College, was arrested by Berkeley police . . . on suspicion of three counts of assault with a deadly weapon identified as a U-lock bike lock, and one of those assaults is alleged to have caused a significant injury. […]

Until Wednesday night, Berkeley investigators had declined to say whether they were looking into Clanton, despite the outcry online calling for his arrest. Wednesday, officers arrested him in Oakland at 12:15 p.m. He is being held at Berkeley Jail with a bail of $200,000, according to Alameda County sheriff’s office records online. Clanton, whose listed occupation is college professor, is scheduled for arraignment Friday. Police said they have identified three victims in the case. All three were struck in the head or neck with a bike lock, police said.”

Hallmark offers cards to give to people who are “transitioning”

hallmark transgender card

The truth about “transitioning” is something you will never hear about in popular media. That’s because the transgender truth hurts – both mentally and physically – and goes against the liberal agenda.

That truth is that you cannot physically or scientifically change your gender/sex. You can only change your feelings. And when it comes to feelings, Hallmark has a card for that!

From HuffPo: Hallmark is expanding the company’s line of greeting cards to be more inclusive of the experiences of transgender people.

The new card depicts a butterfly on the front with the words, “You’re becoming who you’ve always been.” The interior reads, “How wonderful is that?”

The card is intended to both acknowledge the journey of transition for trans people and help the people in their lives celebrate their experiences.

“Hallmark is committed to helping people share what’s in their hearts with those they love, and we strive to be inclusive and relevant with our products,” a spokesperson for Hallmark told HuffPost. “We are committed to reflecting people’s real lives and enriching their relationships, and our mission includes all people. We know how increasingly diverse our connections to each other are, and we’re here to help people express love, celebration, support or recognition in a wide range of situations.”

While Hallmark first introduced the card in 2015, it has recently made waves on after several viral tweets related to the product.

California man, 20, who drugged and raped his teenage sister gets lenient sentence of less than a year prison as judge insists the ‘stigma’ is enough

nolan bruder

Sex offender Nolan Bruder

Unreal.

From Daily Mail: A 20-year-old man who drugged and raped his 16-year-old sister was sentenced to less than a year in prison by a California judge on Wednesday.

Nolan Bruder pleaded guilty earlier this month and admitted that he gave his younger sister high potency marijuana to smoke until she reached a point where she no longer recognized him as her brother after she resisted his repeated sexual advances, KRCR reported.

Bruder was sentenced by Judge William Follet to serve only three years in prison with all but 240 days suspended in favor of granting probation for rape of an intoxicated person, according to the Del Norte District Attorney’s Office.

Follet said that the stigma of this conviction along with the mandatory sex offender registration requirements would ‘sufficiently deter Bruder.’ 

After the judge’s sentencing, district attorney Dale Trigg said he ‘could not disagree more with (it).’

‘The message that this sends to our community is that sexual predators who get their juvenile siblings stoned enough can have sex with them without any meaningful consequence,’ Trigg told KRCR. ‘That is not the message I want to send to our community,’

Trigg said that the judge noted in court that the victim took her own clothes off and was not unconscious.

Follet apparently also questioned if there was enough evidence for a jury to convict Bruder, despite there being a video-taped confession that the 20-year-old gave after admitting to what he did.

During the sentencing hearing, Deputy District Attorney Annamarie Padilla argued that Bruder should be sentenced to prison for six years in following the Probation Department’s recommendation.

Trigg said that since the highly-publicized rape case involving ex-Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, the California legislature changed the law to make such crimes ineligible for probation.

Turner sexually assaulted an unconscious woman after a party and was eventually spent three months in jail for the crime. Trigg said that in this case, Bruder benefited from the fact that the crimes he committed pre-dated the change in the law, which allowed Follet to sentence him to probation.

The district attorney argued that Bruder’s crime is significantly worse than Turner’s. ‘In a lot of ways, this case is more egregious than Brock Turner,’ Trigg told KRCR. ‘This defendant took advantage of a position of trust as this victim’s big brother. He knew she didn’t want to have sex with him.

‘She told him that repeatedly. So he got her stoned on dabs he gave her until she didn’t even recognize him in order get what he wanted.’

‘Pansexual’ pervert proposes adding P for pedophiles to LGBT

We warned you about the slippery slope.

A self-appointed spokesman for the LGBT “community” named Ernst Steiner is urging LGBTs to add P to LGBT.

P is for “pedosexuals” — the Left’s new Orwellian euphemism for pedophiles.

Here’s Steiner’s propaganda of April 23, 2017 for a blog he founded called Heart Progress because, you see, fisting and banging bungholes and raping children is all about ♥ loove ♥, and “love is ageless” because pedophilia is just another sexual orientation and attraction, those noble LGBTPs just want to “legalize love”, and only “bigot” and “hatemongers” oppose and persecute those endearing “pedosexuals”:

For years, the struggle against hate and bigotry has gone on. For years, sexual minority groups of all sorts have faced persecution. Now, in the 21st century, we are finally beginning to see that bigotry begin to disappear. Homosexuals have the right to marry, minority genders are finally being recognized, transgender children are finally getting the treatment they need to be who they are, and most importantly, these groups are finally being given minority status.

But the sexual liberation movement has only just begun, and there’s still more work to be done. Yes, homosexuals have the right to marriage in some places, but there still needs to be global laws to ensure they have the right to marriage in all places. Sure, transgenders are being recognized for who they are, but discrimination against them is still rampant in today’s world. Luckily, these issues are being tackled by progressive groups across the globe, but there is still one minority group that is marginalized to the point of neglect: pedosexuals.

Since the beginning of the LGBT+ movement, pedosexuals have been there helping to achieve sexual liberation for all. Unfortunately, pedosexuals have also been the ones to stand up and take the heat to help prevent abuse toward their other sexual minority friends. This act of bravery among pedosexuals in the name of sexual equality has led to them being the ones being persecuted to this day, despite also being born with a different attraction. Now that the sexual liberation movement is succeeding, bigots have now focused all of their hate on pedosexuals, as they have already lost the war against other sexual minorities.

So the question still stands: Should the LGBTQ+ movement accept pedosexuals? I think that the answer is quite obvious: Absolutely! Pedosexuals have helped achieve so much for the other sexual minority groups, that it would simply be unjust to allow them to suffer in discrimination due to hateful bigots on the right. Pedosexuals are going through what other sexual minorities went through thirty years ago, all because they were willing to take the heat so that their allies within the sexual liberation movement could move forward.

We of the LGBTQ+ movement need to do the moral thing and progress passed this bigotry toward these sexual minorities that is so often encouraged by the systemically bigoted mainstream. We cannot stoop as low as the hatemongers that have kept ourselves down, and we need to stand up for those who’ve held such an important role in our liberation. As a pansexual man, I am in full support of pedosexual rights, and you should be too.

The dictionary says “pansexual” is someone who’s sexually attracted to people regardless of their gender. But why restrict yourself to just “people” of all genders? That’s species discrimination!

Just you wait and see. Next on the agenda of pansexual Ernst Steiner and his ilk will be bestiality, which they prefer to call zoophilia, ’cause banging animals is all about loove, loove, loove.

Katy Perry on Manchester Bombing at Ariana Grande Show: ‘We Need to Coexist’

katy-perry

The jihadists don’t want to co-exist with you Katy, no matter how naked you might be.

Here’s a pro-tip for Katy: That will NEVER happen. Jihadists don’t co-exist with us infidels. Foolish womyn.

From Yahoo: Katy Perry said she felt “devastated” following the terrorist attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England Monday. Speaking with radio host Elvis Duran, Perry said, “I think the greatest thing we can do now is unite as people, as fan bases, all of it. Whatever we say behind people’s backs, the Internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go but I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.

Perry also addressed fellow pop star Grande’s fans directly, saying, “I just want to say that I love all of you out there and I just know that some of our fan bases kind of go both ways. Ari’s fans are my fans, and my fans are Ari’s fans. We’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.

The “Swish Swish” singer’s comments on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show follow a pair of messages she posted toTwitter Monday after news of the bombing broke. “Praying for everyone at Ariana Grande’s show,” Perry said. “Broken hearted for the families tonight. Broken hearted for Ari. Broken hearted for the state of this world.”

At least 22 attendees were killed by a suicide bomber outside the Manchester Arena, while around 60 more have been reported injured. On Tuesday, police arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with the attack, while British Prime Minister Theresa May said police have the identity of the other assailant, who died when he detonated the device. The so-called Islamic State have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Numerous artists have also voiced their sorrow and support for Grande and her fans, including Harry Styles, Drake, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Missy Elliot, as well as Manchester natives and local music scene stalwarts such as Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr and Peter Hook.

As for Perry, the pop star is set to release her new album, Witness, June 9th. Over the past year, she’s also embraced her role as an activist, serving as one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal supporters during the 2016 election and notably donating $10,000 to Planned Parenthood last November.

This is a male model!?

The decay of American culture and society is proceeding at a dizzying speed.

Opening Ceremony is a company that sells women’s and men’s clothing. Established since 2002, Opening Ceremony has stores in New York, Los Angeles, Japan, as well as online.

This is the picture Opening Ceremony has on its website to advertise its men’s clothing — a skeletal male languishly reclining on chairs, presumably modeling a pair of nondescript pants while naked to his waist:

To whom is the cadaver-like, heroin-ravaged male model supposed to appeal?

Who in their right mind would find him attractive as a fashion model, and so buy those pants?

The self-appointed culture czars of the MSM, once again, are slamming CBS about the lack of women headlining the network’s offers. From The Wrap, May 17, 2017:

At CBS’ pre-upfront breakfast on Wednesday, a reporter asked chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves about the lack of women leads in his new series orders.

Moonves iterated that despite the lack of women in lead roles, CBS’s shows still garner women viewers with shows like “Madam Secretary” — which stars Téa Leoni — and “The Good Fight,” which is on CBS All Access.

More women watch CBS percentage-wise than any other network — so our shows have a lot of female appeal,” Moonves said.

Moonves continued, saying that a number of pilots have women in leading roles, but the best projects get picked up regardless of the gender of No. 1 on the call sheet.

In his radio show a couple of days ago, Rush Limbaugh made mention of this. Limbaugh said Moonves believes CBS is popular with women because the network’s shows prominently feature alpha males. Can you imagine shows like Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary, NCIS and its clones with wimpy male leads like that Opening Ceremony male model? LOL

‘Dear White People’ Director And Star Break Down Why Black People Can’t Be Racist

logan browning and justin siemin

Logan Browning and Justin Simien: Black racists who are never racists.

Of course there is no double standard in the eyes of these folks. That irony is as rich as their lack of self-awareness.

From HuffPo: Netflix’s “Dear White People” has been described as a strong modern-day take on race that is both clever and dynamic in its approach.  

The show, directed by Justin Simien, was adapted from his 2014 film of the same name, and is set on the fictional and predominantly white campus of Winchester University. Simien crafted a season filled with diverse portrayals of the black experience ― told through the lens of several students on campus ― that speak to the varied ways people of color are impacted by race.

The show touches themes like interracial relationships, police brutality, the complexities of the n-word and what it can be like to speak out against racism in the face of opposition ― something that feels especially timely. Simien and the show’s star, Logan Browning, stopped by HuffPost Black Voices to discuss myths that often come up in conversations about race and racism.

In the video above (video is at the HuffPo link), watch as Simien and Browning explain why double standards around racism simply don’t exist, like: Why a show titled “Dear Black People” would be offensive, why the n-word is off-limits to white but not black people; Why minority-focused spaces like HuffPost Black Voices exist but HuffPost White Voices does not; and why there’s simply no such thing as reverse racism.

Interesting comments Justin made in an interview via the Daily Beast (from April 2017):

“I’m sure people will feel gratified that they have seen themselves [represented]. I’m sure people will take issue with some of the choices that the characters make, but that’s all, in my opinion, part of doing my job as an artist.

But in a weird way, I feel like subconsciously we made the show for the Trump era. Watching it back now there are certain moments that are so chillingly accurate that I don’t know what part of our brains that came out of. So yeah, we assumed Hillary would be president, but, we also, you know — I think Dave Chappelle said something similar. I know white people so I don’t know that I was ever completely sure that she was going to win. I was just as shocked and crestfallen as most of the rest of us.”

During the Q&A at SXSW, you said you wanted the show to be a “clap back” against Trump’s election. What did you mean by that?

“What I meant was, once I had sort of processed my grief over the result of the election — and I’m sure someone will read this and not agree with me politically or whatever — but I was really going through the stages of grief, like a lot of people. But what made me feel better was, as we were editing the show, I was just like, boy, it felt so good to have something artistically at the ready to respond to the times that we’re in. I didn’t have to go back and write something; we already made it. It was already on deck. I found some comfort in that. And when I say response or “clap back,” Dear White People is not about all the evil things that white people do, it’s just that I think that the show attempts to analyze the hidden forces behind these conflicts. If this had happened and I didn’t have something ready to put out artistically, I would have felt even more empty about what happened. So I was just happy that we decided to speak about political things and racial issues that clearly played a factor in the result.

In his mind, as an “artist” his political opinion has more weight. And, of course, he can never be a racist.
