WATCH: Tucker Carlson Takes On Berkeley Protester. It Isn’t Pretty.

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo

Yvette Felarca is an “antifascist” activist who helped to organize the violent protests that lead to the silencing of Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley, earlier this month. She’s also a middle school teacher at a public school in California…as in government tax dollars fund her salary.

On Monday, Felarca, who openly advocates for the shutting up of whomever she deems a “fascist” by “any means necessary,” appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss her radical views. And it wasn’t pretty.

Host Tucker Carlson opened the segment by showing a clip of Felarca physically assaulting a peaceful protester for espousing language she did not like, allegedly pro-fascist language. Since Felarca advocates for their silencing, Carlson asked the “activist” to clarify who exactly, by definition, is a “fascist.”

“A fascist is someone who’s organizing a mass movement that’s attacking women, immigrants, black people, other minority groups in a movement of genocide,” she answered. “That’s what a fascist is.”

“So, it’s someone who is committing violence?” asked Carlson.

“It is someone who is committing violence and someone who is trying to organize other people to commit violence,” responded the public middle school teacher. “And Milo Yiannopoulos is a fascist.”

“So he’s committed acts of violence against the protected groups you mentioned?” questioned Carlson.

“Well, what he’s doing is he’s trying to be the youth face and the token that other people who are organizing violence tried to hide behind,” she explained. “And so at all of his talks all over the country, what Yiannopoulos has done is whip up a whole lynch mob mentality, where people who come to see him or his supporters not only agree with his views but also attack other people. And that was certainly true in Washington State when one of his supporters came and actually shot an anti-fascist protester. But in Berkeley, we made sure that didn’t happen because were able to shut it down.”

Felarca continued to double-down on her pro-violence position, explaining that those she subjectively deems “fascists” should be quieted “by any means necessary.” The teacher’s “activist” group is even called “BAMN,” an acronym for the pro-violence mantra.

“I would call for people to counter-protest, to stand up and to shut down any attempts for fascists to recruit and organize,” she sternly replied, when Carlson asked “to what extent” she would go to shut down so-called “fascists.”

“What do you mean by ‘shut down’?” inquired the Fox host. “What if I want to keep talking? What if I’m saying something you find appalling, but I’ve got a First Amendment right. I’m an American. What would you do?”

Felarca dodged the question, speaking instead of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senate rules.

There you have it folks: Subjectively deem someone a fascist and then go ahead and use violence to shut them down, all in the name of tolerance and equality, of course.
