The violence in Charlottesville, Virginia occurred just two weeks ago, and a week later, intense violent protests broke out in Boston, Massachusetts. Now, another group of so-called anti-fascists planned for an attack at Berkeley this past weekend.
This particular arm of Antifa is led in part by a woman named Yvette Felarca. The group, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), specializes in using violence as a tactic for achieving their goal of anti-fascism. according to Front Page Mag. Felarca took to her Facebook page and announced plans for continued violence at the rally. In fact, the first page of her post starts out, “Updated important information for BAMN contingent this weekend to beat up more whites.”
Felarca then went into detail explaining where the protests will be held. She explained that she believes they have the Right on the run and that they have to stay persistent.
Then, in what is undoubtedly the most disturbing part of the post, Yvette wrote, “We’ve gotta hospitalize most of them (remember to bring your metal pipes and nailed bats). Make those whites vegetables!”
It sounds almost as if it’s satire, but after Felarca’s appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, it is consistent with her rhetoric. She means every word that she says.
In what is likely a cover-up measure to remove negative opinions toward their group, Felarca edited her Facebook post to remove the calls for violence. Now, she claims, the purpose of the gathering is, “to shut down the Alt-Right and Nazi’s.” The mentions of weapons and beatings have been removed, but considering the violent call remained on Facebook for at least several hours after its posting, it may have been enough time for members to heed the call.
Disturbingly, Felarca has a history of this kind of behavior. Felarca was one of the people grouped in with the 1,500 protesters at Berkeley in February 2017 which eventually led to the cancellation of Milo Yiannopoulous’ speech due to the increasingly dangerous conditions.
Despite shutting down the right-wing provocateur’s right to speak because Felarca didn’t like his opinion, she labeled him as a “fascist” and said, “We have an obligation,” to destroy the Right and anyone who associates with them. Oddly, that sounds an awful lot like fascism.
The most recent rally held at Berkeley is called “No to Marxism in America,” according to The Daily Caller. The organizer is a transgender woman who said that the rally is not specifically right-wing, but meant for anyone who wants to stop the spread of Marxism through Berkeley.
Apparently, this was too much for Felarca’s group, which was coincidently founded by the Marxist-Revolutionary Workers Leauge. Through all of the harm that the group has caused, they have clearly remained unapologetic to the people they have hurt along the way.
It is important to note that Felarca has been in trouble in the past, most recently last month. She was arrested and charged with inciting a riot in Oakland, according to Berkeley Side.
She also faced charges of assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot. Clearly, this is not a joke to her.
The group, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), issued a call to beat up more whites. Does the right to free speech include threats of violence?
These are the kinds of people that need to be monitored closely. They would love nothing more than to bring Communism to the United States and they are not shy about their values.
If these people are not kept in line, the nation could be facing much more serious problems. The anti-fascists want nothing more than to bring hate and fascism to the country, and that rage will continue to grow the longer they are allowed to run unchecked.
