Two weeks after riots broke out in response to Milo Yiannopoulos hosting an event at the University of California-Berkeley campus, Fox News host Tucker Carlson invited the face behind the masked protesters onto his show on Monday night.
As it turns out, the face of the Antifa movement is Yvette Felarca, a tiny but tenacious woman of Filipino descent who heads up the left-wing activist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). On Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host confronted Felarca about her role in shutting down Yiannopoulos and his right to speak.
To her credit, Felarca is open and straightforward about her movement, and she says that Milo is leading a “movement of genocide.”
“Milo Yiannopoulous is a fascist,” Felarca explained. “He’s trying to be the youth face and token that other people who are organizing violence try to hide behind, and so in 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 attack other people.”
Carlson rebutted, “But Milo himself has not committed acts of violence, nor has he incited violence by the legal definition, or he’d be in jail if he did. But you’re saying because people who agree with him have committed violence, he should not be allowed to speak?”
Felarca responded by saying how proud she was to shut his event down, justifying their violent actions as self defense.
“I’m really glad to say that thousands of us were out there last week, or February 1st, and made sure that there were thousands of us who defended our campus, this community, and especially the immigrant and Muslim students who were under attack and have been under attack by him and other fascists.”
