Yvette Felarca, the middle school teacher who is a leader of BAMN (By Any Means Necessary) and Antifa got a brutal wakeup call from a judge in Sacramento.
He panned her planned defense as ridiculous. She claims that the State Police and the DA colluded to charge her with assault and inciting to riot. That theory was shot to hell when a video was introduced that showed Felarca attacking a man who refused to fight back and then she incited other members to attack the man and knock him to the ground before police rushed in to protect him.
Sacramento County Judge Michael Savage threw the argument out on Friday calling the defense ridiculous. He pointed out that the video revealed it to be an illegitimate defense. Her original defense of self-protection was tossed out months ago. Her two groups are both domestic terrorists and he has been a radical since 2009.
Felarca has also been recruiting middle school students to join in her violent protests without notifying parents and for using sick days in order to go out and riot.
One of BAMN’s most prominent organizers is Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and pro-violence militant. Felarca currently faces charges of inciting a riot for her role in the Sacramento violence.
After BAMN and other Antifa groups staged violent protests in Berkeley to keep right-wing author Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking, Felarca defended her group’s acts of violence. BAMN was able to cancel another event, this time an April speech by pro-Trump author Ann Coulter, by promising a repeat performance of the Milo riots.
The FBI and DHS say Antifa groups like BAMN are engaging in “domestic terrorist violence,” according to the Politico report.
Just last weekend, Felarca helped organize BAMN’s mass demonstrations that “shut down” an anti-Marxism rally in Berkeley. As with BAMN’s other organized actions, left-wing actors at Saturday’s demonstrations violently attacked peaceful protesters. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned the Antifa violence in Berkeley, while Felarca called BAMN’s actions a “resounding success.”
