Berkeley Police Department Offered ‘Symbolic Arrests’ To Protesters

Published

on

The police department in Berkeley, California offered “symbolic arrests” to protesters ahead of the melee that ensued this weekend, as “Anti-fascist” (Antifa) left-wingers clashed brutally with Trump supporters holding a “free speech” rally in the progressive city.

Many people wondered — as they did during a prior riot in Berkeley — why the police did not do more to handle the situation. It turns out that Berkeley actually has an official policy of doling out “symbolic arrests” to agitators if they contact the police beforehand.

That policy is stated clearly on the City of Berkeley website, which is excerpted below (bold emphasis added):

As Cassandra Fairbanks reported for Big League Politics, the melee in Berkeley was violent and devastating. Fairbanks reported:

“The protest was organized by militant leftist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), who had previously claimed involvement in another riot in the city in February — boasting that they were one of the “organizers of Berkeley’s shutdown of white neo-fascist Milo Yiannopoulos.”

Prior to Yiannopoulous’ scheduled speech at University of California Berkeley, protesters lead by BAMN had thrown a firebomb, violently attacked attendees, and looted several nearby businesses.

The group, clad in ski masks and all-black attire from head to toe, launched fireworks and molotov cocktails at law enforcement, caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the school’s Student Union, and set the generator of a mobile light structure ablaze. The city estimated that the riot left between $400,000 and $500,000 in damage to the area.

BAMN was identified by the FBI in 2005 as thought to be involved in terrorist activities, in a document called the Domestic Terrorism Symposium, which was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Black bloc is a common tactic used by anarchists to make it more difficult to identify violent protesters and rioters for prosecution or civil claims. The goal is to make one person nearly indistinguishable from the next so that they can disappear in the crowd. The tactic has been used throughout the world for decades, but its first documented use in the US was at a protest against the support of “right-wing death squads” in El Salvador outside the Pentagon in 1988.

Since then, the tactic has become common at protests organized by the far left, which often lead to riots.

It is important to note that the definition of terrorism is “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.””

Harvard Graduate Loses Job After Threatening to Stab Anyone Who Says ‘All Lives Matter’ on TikTok

Claira Janover thought she was above cancel culture.

Harvard graduate Claira Janover said that she wanted to stab anyone who says “All Lives Matter” in a TikTok video, and now she is paying the price as a result.

“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” a lachrymose Janover said in another video posted on Wednesday afternoon. “The job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”

According to Janover’s LinkedIn account, she worked at the UK-based firm Deloitte as an “incoming government and public business service analyst.” She was relieved from her position, as she learns that cancel culture doesn’t just apply to those on the Right who make controversial statements these days.

In her video, Janover complained that she was fired from Deloitte “even though they claim to stand against systematic bias, racism and unequal treatment.” She felt that this ought to give her carte blanche to say racist and hateful things against white people.

Janover decried “the nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say ‘All Lives Matter’” in the infamous video that garnered so much attention and controversy.

“I’ma stab you,” the Connecticut resident said in the post, as she zoomed in tightly on her own face.

She added: “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.’”

In typical liberal fashion, she has refused to take any responsibility for her actions and is instead choosing to blame Trump supporters for being enraged by her hateful, racist comments.

“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she said in a different video posted on Wednesday. “I have gotten death threats, rape threats, violent threats. It was OK, but now my future’s entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for my life.”

“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she added. “It sucks. But it doesn’t suck as much as systemic racism. And I’m not going to stop using my platform to advocate for it.”

Janover also demonstrated her extreme lack of professionalism by bashing her former employer for refusing to tolerate her ignorant and violent comments.

“I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” she said. “That you were cowardice [sic] enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”

This little snowflake has learned the hard way that she does not have as much liberal female privilege as she thought she had.
