Antifa Goon Eric Clanton Gets Probation for Assault with a Deadly Weapon

As mentioned yesterday, “Pussyfooting with Antifa only results in more violence and vandalism.” Eric Clanton is a case in point.

Readers may recall that Clanton, a former college professor, attacked people at a Trump rally in Berkeley with a metal bike lock, causing significant injuries. Using public violence as a political intimidation tactic is classic Antifa. He was caught on video. One of his victims required five staples to close up head lacerations.

Now we learn his punishment.

Having been charged with four felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury (although he actually struck at least seven people in the head), Clanton pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge in Alameda County Superior Court.

The felony charges against him were dismissed, and an allegation that he had caused serious bodily injury was stricken. A misdemeanor charge that Clanton wore a mask during the commission of the crime also was dropped.

Shockingly, he was let off with 3 years of probation.

Clanton doesn’t just act like an Antifa goon. He is one:

Police wrote that they had found evidence last year during a search of Clanton’s home in San Leandro linking him to “Anti-Fascists and Anarchy political groups,” according to court papers. He was not home when police arrived, so officers moved to a second address in West Oakland where they said they found flags, patches and pamphlets “associating Clanton” with antifa and anarchist groups.

Police also found selfies of Clanton dressed up in his sinister Black Bloc costume. He even has an “Iron Front” Antifa tattoo on his arm.

The bike lock assaults were not his first offense. He had been arrested in 2014 on public nuisance charges during a Black Lives Matter outburst.

The message from the court is clear. Have at, Antifa goons. Break some windows, crack some skulls. The liberal establishment that is using you for a cat’s paw has got your back.

Some of Clanton’s unpunished handiwork.

  1. […] Eric Clanton may not be the only professorial moonbat to resort to violence and get away with it. At least Clanton got probation for bashing in people’s skulls with a bike lock. At last word, Quinnipiac University’s Matthew Fantastic Loter has not even been arrested for assaulting YouTuber Jeremy Hambly for being a countermoonbat. […]
