    The DNC spent millions trying to make that frat guy the face of white cultural hegemony. This guy really is the face of DNC street theater. So, expect minimal media coverage. Don’t want to embarrass the DNC.

      The DNC needs no help when it comes to being embarrassed!

    On YouTube video, he is seen dressed in black, wearing a hoodie & mask sneaking through the crowd & using a U-shaped bicycle lock to clobber a student over the head then retreating back into the crowd.

    Student instantly begins gushing blood.

    This violent criminal is a domestic terrorist by any definition. That charge, as well as commission of a hate crime need to be added.

    How come this ANTIFA “professor” loser doesn’t have a mug shot? I wanna see it and rejoice. Saw video of him bludgeoning innocents and he needs to be someone’s girl in prison. Seriously.

    • Its been 3 months and no Mugshot.. I personally am going to have to spend the $10 dollars When its up on the superbasicnews site, let the dailycal. know .

    What new, stupid thing did he do? With the firearm charge, this arrest isn’t from his bike lock assaults.

  • Nunya Beeswax

    That’s taking “Change must come through the barrel of a gun” a bit literally, isn’t it?

  • Michael Stuart

  • ShadowSandy

    Autism powers activate! Form of… Columbo!

  • Some guy

    Good. If the person in those videos is indeed him, then he deserves to go to prison. He could have killed those people, and for what? Because he didn’t like their political opinions? That’s not okay.
