The disgusting ways the left has been going after Trump supporters and free speech activists is something many would image in a banana republic. With the lack of action taken against these thugs, many were starting to worry Americans’ free speech would be silenced. NO LONGER: After the happy warriors of 4chan identified Eric Clanton as the violent Antifa member assaulting activists with a bike lock, the former leftist professor has finally been arrested.
The East Bay Times reports:
The arrest of a former Diablo Valley College professor on Wednesday caused some conservative social media to celebrate the apprehension of a man they say used a bike lock in a vicious attack during a rally for President Donald Trump last month.
Eric Clanton remained in custody in lieu of $200,000 bail at Berkeley Jail on Thursday and will be arraigned Friday morning at 9 a.m. at Oakland’s Wiley W. Manuel courthouse. He was arrested on suspicion of use of a firearm during a felony with an enhancement clause and assault with a non-firearm deadly weapon.
Berkeley police did not immediately return requests for comment Friday morning and have not provided details to this paper about the incident for which Clanton was arrested.
Here’s a video of the attack. Warning: Graphic violence
As of this writing, none of the major media industrial complex publications have covered this story. Imagine what they would be saying if a Trump supporter had done something similar. Hypocrites might be able to hide on CNN but they can’t hide from the writers at the American Lookout.
