Now that a judge has finally hit the violent, Berkeley middle school teacher, Yvette Felarca, with a huge fine, will the woman who organizes violent anti-free speech protests (when she’s not influencing young minds), give up on her life of crime?
Commissioner Thomas Rasch of the Superior Court of Alameda County ordered Berkeley By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) leader Yvette Felarca (@YvetteFelarca) to pay former Berkeley College Republicans (BCR) (@BerkeleyCRs) president Troy Worden (@TroyWorden) $11,100 for filing a frivolous civil harassment restraining order against Worden last year, today.
Rasch ruled that the restraining order had not been filed in good faith and ordered Felarca to pay Worden’s attorney fees.
Felarca, a Berkeley Middle School teacher who was twice arrested last year for incitement of a riot, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer, filed the frivolous restraining against Worden to stifle his freedom of speech at U.C. Berkeley after BCR had invited several conservative speakers to speak on campus. Berkeley’s actions in blocking those speakers are the subject of a separate federal civil rights lawsuit.
The court in Felarca’s restraining order case granted a temporary restraining order in September but then dismissed it in late October after repeated failures by Felarca’s lawyers to prove their case, and in the face of extensive evidence produced by Worden’s counsel showing that Felarca had fabricated her claims. Worden, represented by The Dhillon Law Group’s (@dhillonlaw) Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) and Mark Meuser (@MarkMeuser) filed a motion for attorney fees and sanctions against Felarca, which was heard today.
“By ruling that Yvette Felarca did not demonstrate good faith in filing the restraining order, the court recognized the frivolous nature of Felarca’s actions,” Meuser said. “The award of attorney fees should send a strong signal that she cannot abuse the court system to silence speech.”
“This marks the second time in two months that Felarca and her lawyers have been ordered by an area court to pay the attorney fees of their opponents for filing legally and factually unsupported claims in court,” said Partner Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group. “Felarca’s pattern of abusing the courts to achieve her anarchist ends is a classic Alinsky tactic. We are pleased that the court recognized this today and ordered Felarca to pay Worden’s attorney fees and his court costs associated with her baseless complaint. True victims of harassment/stalking/assault need the courts to be available to them as a priority, not clogged with fabricated claims pursued in bad faith.” – East County Today
So, who, exactly is Yvette Felarca?
Tucker Carlson interviewed Yvette Felarca on his FOX News show. Watch, as she unapologetically condones using violence to shut down free-speech:
Frontpage does a great job of breaking down just who Yvette Felarca really is: Felarca has been posing as a social studies teacher at a public school in Berkeley, California for the past eleven years. But her true calling in life,⸺ what really makes her happy,⸺ is to be a violent revolutionary who helps tear America’s social fabric to shreds. In pursuit of that goal, Felarca serves as a national organizer for By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a self-described “militant anti-fascist group.” Obviously, being “anti-fascist” sounds pretty unobjectionable at first blush. But to put things in their proper context, BAMN grew out of the Revolutionary Workers League, a Trotskyite entity that favors worldwide socialist revolution and was once the largest black Marxist organization in the New Communist Movement, which openly endorsed violence. Interesting affiliations for a devoted “anti-fascist,” huh?
Moreover, Felarca has been an activist in the anti-capitalist, pro-socialist Occupy Wall Street movement, and a participant in Black Lives Matter protests in California. Black Lives Matter is a black supremacist movement that was founded by Marxist revolutionaries who uniformly revere Assata Shakur, the former Black Panther and convicted cop-killer who has spent decades as a fugitive in Communist Cuba. Again, a curious choice of friends for an “anti-fascist,” huh?
Felarca hates America to its core because she views it as a nation steeped in toxic white racism. And she’s determined to indoctrinate her students with this very same hatred, no matter what the cost. When her school district docked her pay because she had repeatedly violated district rules by using her leave time to attend “immigrant-rights” marches in support of open borders and amnesty, Felarca nevertheless continued to play by her own rules. When the school district eventually scheduled a private meeting to discuss Felarca’s insubordination, a gang of young rabble-rousers assembled outside the district office to denounce the “harassment” of their “anti-fascist” icon. After that meeting, Felarca posted a Facebook message urging her supporters to sign a petition characterizing her as a heroic role model who should be allowed to use her personal leave time for whatever political purposes she damn well pleased.
In October 2015, Felarca sought permission to take students to a San Francisco immigration court to observe the hearing of a woman who was seeking asylum in the U.S. The district denied Felarca’s request, but the feisty “anti-fascist” didn’t care about anything as quaint as district rules and regulations. Thus she proudly extended a proverbial middle finger to the taxpayers whose teats she has been sucking dry since 2006, and she attended the asylum hearing anyway during her regular work hours. Nor did Felarca make any effort to hide her contempt for those taxpayers. Indeed, she gave an interview on television during the event.
Felarca openly and explicitly advocates the use of violent riots as a legitimate means of making a political statement. “Riots are the voice of the unheard,” she said in December 2014. “You can never replace the lives of Michael Brown and Eric Garner,” she added in a reference to two black men who had died in highly publicized altercations with police officers earlier that year, “but you can always replace broken windows.”
True to her pro-violence principles, on June 26, 2016, Felarca and BAMN led some 400 protesters in a series of pre-planned attacks against a group of approximately 30 members of the white-supremacist Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) who had secured a permit to hold a rally on the steps of the California State Capitol Building. The rally never took place, however, because Felarca and her comrades violently assaulted them with fists, clubs, rocks, and pepper spray. By the time the mayhem was over, numerous people had been injured, including two who were critically wounded. Felarca shoved one TWP member and repeatedly shouted: “Get the fu** off our streets!” Within a few moments, several of Felarca’s male accomplices tackled that individual and beat him to a pulp.
In the aftermath of all the violence, Felarca proudly announced that she and her comrades had “succeeded” in shutting down a “recruitment rally” for “Nazi scum.”
