COINTEL PRO: Are ‘Anti-Fascist’ Media Personalities Playing to the Cameras?

21st Century Wire says…

In this age of hyper-politicized mass media, it’s becoming harder to differentiate between those who are acting for the cameras, and genuine political protesters.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson interviews Yvette Felarca, a self-described “middle school teacher” from Berkley and leader of the radical socialist ‘Anti-Fascist’ flash mob mobilization organization known as “By Any Means Necessary” or BAMN. In this interview, she openly advocates for physical violence against anyone, or speech whom her or her activist group deems as a “fascist.” Felarca was the media face of the UC Berkley unrest which sprung up over an event hosted by gay conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos.

According to Felarca, ‘Alt-Right’ speaker Yiannopoulos “should not be allowed to speak in public.” Watch:

Yvette Felarca first gained media exposure after previously leading an alleged counter-protest against a “Fascist Rally” at what was branded by the mainstream media as the “Battle of Sacramento” in July 2016.  On its face, this protest looked very much a staged media event, perfectly scheduled ahead of time, and with activist actor Felarca playing the part of agent provocateur for the cameras. At the Sacramento event, supposed protesters on both sides were holding what appeared to be light weight wooden props, apparently meant to be fighting sticks. Felarca’s leftist group were wearing face masks and balaclavas to conceal their identities, another strong indication that these are not real protesters, and could very well be ‘activist’ actors playing for the cameras. What is perhaps the biggest give-away of the staged performance was the fact that the scores of police who were on site just stood back while the violence broke out and carried on on for quite some time – which means that either these were not actually policing but supervising, or they were there as part of the backdrop for the media. Certainly, FBI programs like COINTELPRO which began in 1956, come to mind here.

Watch the following montage of the performance:

Watch Felarca again in Sacramento, complete with the bandage on the head but clearly in no pain at all, playing to the cameras while calling for mass mobilization of violence across state lines, which itself is in violation of federal law – further indicating that federal agents are allowing Felarca to carry on with the act, perhaps as part of a long-term operation designed to attract both radical left and right participants and then monitor them over a long period of time. This is exactly the practice of the FBI in the past, using confidential informants on both sides – with the FBI informants or handlers being at the very top of the said ‘activist’ organizations. Here, Felarca is calling for “militant integrated direct action” and organized violence to “shut down” right-wing demonstrations in America.

Watch what appears to be a well rehearsed, albeit overly dramatic, and borderline sociopathic TV performance here:

Although FBI involvement steering Rightwing extremist groups tends to grab most of the headlines, as was the case with the agency’s alleged involvement in the Oklahoma City Bombings – it’s important to note that the FBI have traditionally targeted and infiltrated mostly Leftwing political groups in America:

“Despite the comparatively small size of both the CP and the American SWP by the late 1950s and early 1960s, their members’ implantation in industrial workplaces, independent electoral campaigns, desegregation, and antiwar activities, as well as the bureau’s fanatical obsession with “communism,” made them targets. New Left activists who were not only hampering the ability of the U.S. to fight in Vietnam, but also challenging ideological assumptions about women’s roles, sexuality, and segregation garnered attention and harassment by the state as well. But the most disruptive and violent COINTELPRO operations in the period from the late 1960s into the mid-1970s were directed against the Black and Native American struggles.

It was a general rule throughout the 1960s, that local police departments would devote at least 1 percent of their resources to surveillance and infiltration.13 These local agents, acting in cahoots with the feds, read the left-wing press and became familiar with the fact that organized leftists were involved in liberal and pacifist groups and that individuals were often radicalized by these ideas as well as by their own experiences of struggle.”

Here is some additional footage from the UC Berkley protest, where Felarca is accusing Trump supports of “rape” and “mass murder” – clearly a well rehearsed script, again, with Felarca playing the archetypal agent provocateur. Watch:
