    and Nazis are the Violent ones

    Teacher Accused Of Punching Neo-Nazi Says Standing Up To Fascism Isn't A Crime
    "We have the right to defend ourselves," Yvette Felarca told the court.


    Yvette Felarca, 47, was arrested last month for her involvement in a June 2016 anti-fascist demonstration held in Sacramento.

    Felarca, who is a member of an activist group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), has been charged with felony assault, as well as two misdemeanor counts of inciting and participating in a riot, according to KPIX TV.

    Footage of the demonstration appears to show Felarca repeatedly punching a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party, a white nationalist group described as ”a front for neo-Nazi sympathizers” by ABC 10. The taller man is holding up his hands while trying to get police officers to help. Other protesters drag the man to the ground before the police intervene.

    “Standing up against fascism and the rise of Nazism and fascism in this country is not a crime,” she said. “We have the right to defend ourselves.”

    Back in 2016, Felarca told reporters that the goal of the demonstration was to “shut down the Nazi scum.”

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    What caught my eye was the way they dragged him down and then pounced like a street gang, ready to stomp him. Love the cops just watching until he went down.

    Yet if he had punched this scumbag back he would have been arrested.

    Felarca was arrested last month and charged with "assault by means of force likely to inflict great bodily injury, a felony, and participating in a riot, and inciting a riot, both misdemeanors," according to local paper Berkeleyside. During her arraignment this week, Felarca was unapologetic, telling the court that she's justified in punching Nazis and that the charges should be dropped.

    “Standing up against fascism and the rise of Nazism and fascism in this country is not a crime,” Felarca said. “We have the right to defend ourselves.”

    Her goal, Felarca told reporters during the protest in 2016, was to "shut down the Nazi scum." “They are organizing to attack and kill us,” she told Al Jazeera, who was on the scene at the rally. “So we have a right to self-defense. ... That is why we have to shut them down by any means necessary.”

    Unfortunately for Felarca, that's not exactly how self-defense works in a court of law. But it's not likely she's deeply concerned; even as she stands trial for her previous "anti-fascism," she and her group, BAMN, are plotting another counter-protest, this time against a group of anti-Marxists who will march on Berkeley this weekend. Calling the rally a "white supremacist march" she told media this week she and her group plan to live up to their name, "by any means necessary."
