A California judge refused to drop felony charges Thursday against a school teacher and self-described Antifa leader who allegedly incited violence at a political rally in Sacramento nearly two years ago.
Yvette Felarca, the 47-year-old spokesperson for Antifa-related organization By Any Means Necessary, is accused of “inciting and participating in a riot” in June 2016 when hundreds of protesters confronted white nationalist groups at a rally near the state Capitol.
A judge refused her lawyer’s claim that the charges were a politically charged “witch hunt” to harm the Antifa, or ‘Anti-Fascist’ movement.
“In the aftermath, the California Highway Patrol and Sacramento District Attorney have done nothing to prosecute the fascists who attempted to murder people in Sacramento,” the motion to dismiss stated.
“I think the judge’s decision was politically motivated; I don’t think it was valid,” added Felarca’s Communist sympathizing lawyer. “I think that this decision is regarded by all as being really outrageous.”
The skirmish broke out at the state Capitol in June 2016 when more than 300 counter-protesters confronted about 30 members of the Traditionalist Worker Party, which has been called a white nationalist group.
The assault charge was filed after a video captured her hitting Nigel Walker, a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party, and calling a man a Nazi before repeatedly punching him in the stomach while shouting “get the f— off our streets,” the Daily Californian reported.
Felarca, whose name in public records appears as Yvonne Capistrano Felarca, was taken into custody in July 2017 on the charges stemming from the violent brawl. Felarca was also injured in the melee after being stabbed and requiring stitches.
The prosecutor argued that “there was no basis to dismiss these charges” and pointed out the fact that opposition individuals were not charged with crimes did not relieve Felarca from prosecution.
“Even if the extraordinary allegations of bias and collusion posited by the defense in their motion to dismiss were true, and they are not, they would have no bearing on the guilt or innocence of the defendants currently before the court,” the District Attorney’s office reply to the motion stated.
In a pathetic attempt to deflect away from her Communist defendant’s guilt, Shanta Driver, Felarca’s lawyer, said, “I think the judge’s decision was politically motivated; I don’t think it was valid, I think that this decision is regarded by all as being really outrageous.”
“We completely disagree with the judge’s decision,” Felarca said. “We’re committed to continuing to fight this out.”
A preliminary hearing is slated for May 18.
Sadly, this teacher’s problems would have never happened, had she not chosen the treasonous path of Communism.
You know what they say, BETTER DEAD THAN RED!
