Portland antifa militant filmed on video attacking elderly man, arrested.
This story has been updated from the original.
A Portland antifa militant wanted for the assault of an elderly driver has been arrested after being on the run for months.
Shaun Clancy, 37, was arrested on Wednesday by Portland Police on an outstanding felony warrant stemming from a violent Black Lives Matter protest last year. On Oct. 6, 2018, Clancy was allegedly part of a far-left mob who shut down a street in downtown Portland and attacked an elderly driver.
Viral video recorded at the time showed a mob kicking and chasing a silver sedan being driven slowly by 74-year-old Kent Houser. Police identified Clancy as one of the individuals who struck Mr. Houser’s car with a metal baton after he was shoved inside. Damages to his car required thousands of dollars in repairs.
At the time of the arrest on Wednesday, police found and charged Clancy with carrying concealed weapons. Police confiscated a stun gun with an antifa sticker, as well as brass knuckles. Clancy was also charged with criminal mischief in the first degree, relating to the attack on Mr. Houser last year.
Before moving to Portland, Clancy lived in Fla. and Pa. The suspect identifies as non-binary and has been involved in extreme antifa activities for at least two decades. On social media, Clancy encouraged fellow comrades to bring weapons to protests. He is also a member of the Red and Anarchist Skinheads, a violent organization involved in street hooliganism and training militants to fight.
In 2012, the New York Times profiled Clancy in a story about the youth vote. Clancy had dropped out of a theater program in college and was on unemployment benefits.
Clancy said during the jail intake that they currently work as a bouncer at Belmont’s Inn, a bar, and Desire, a strip club.
In an interview with The Post Millennial, Mr. Houser, now 75, said he was unaware of Clancy’s arrest. He says no one else has been held accountable for the attack until now.
“I get emotional thinking about and reliving this,” he says. “I tried looking for a police officer. There were none in sight.” Portland mayor Ted Wheeler and the police were heavily criticized at the time for seemingly allowing violent protesters to shut down the streets in an unpermitted demonstration.
After Houser was attacked, the protesters then occupied a busy downtown intersection where they again stopped traffic. Viral video recorded at the scene showed cars being hit and drivers subject to racial slurs.
Since 2016, there have been around two-dozen left-wing and right-wing protests that devolved into riots in the Portland area. Antifa groups have been responsible for the most violent attacks on citizens, property and law enforcement.
Mr. Houser says that to date, he has not heard from the mayor. “What are you doing to protect the people of this city?” he asks. “You’ve been a total disgrace.” Mr. Houser was also subjected to a doxing campaign last year by Portland’s Resistance, an antifa group whose leader is chummy with the mayor.
Shaun Clancy’s next court date is on Jan. 3, 2020.
Jessica Yaniv is no stranger to violating other people’s rights, but the scene outside of the Surrey Law Courts was shocking as Yaniv was caught on camera violently assaulting Rebel Media reporter Keean Bexte.
Leaving the courthouse after appearing on prohibited weapons charges, Bexte is recording from a distance that appears to be well over fifteen feet. He asks Yaniv whether the trans activist will be pleading guilty, but is stopped short as Yaniv rapidly approaches and begins swiping at him with an outstretched arm.
Yaniv is heard shouting “Go! Go!” to the reporter, and despite Bexte’s rapid retreat, Yaniv continues to pursue, appearing to grab the reporter’s microphone. An off-screen scuffle ensues, with a brief frame catching Yaniv seeming to violently club Bexte over the head. Bexte is heard groaning in pain and for Yaniv to stop the assault.
When the camera reorients, Yaniv continues to chase Bexte, demanding he “go away from me!”
In the tweet attached to the video, Bexte states that Yaniv “punched me in the back of the head” and that he “[needed] an Advil.”
The Rebel Media reporter noted that there are multiple security cameras that may have caught the altercation and that he had spoken to police.
“Following Yaniv’s court appearance at the courthouse in Surrey I approached him outside – where filming was allowed. I had one question. I wanted to know if he would be pleading guilty or not. Within several seconds, Yaniv charged me and punched the back of my head while holding me down. Police have been reluctant to charge him before, and so I’m speaking to legal council to figure out my options to make sure this menace sees justice,” Bexte told The Post Millennial.
Bexte had been banned from reporting from inside the courtroom today where Yaniv had been appearing, with courthouse police capitulating to Yaniv’s demands to have him barred. Previously, Yaniv had also successfully demanded citizen journalist Donald Smith be prevented from entering the courthouse.
Earlier this evening, Yaniv confronted The Post Millennial’s Amy Eileen Hamm, falsely accusing her of taking photographs of Yaniv in the women’s washroom. The police searched Hamm’s phone at Yaniv’s request, finding none of the claimed photos.
Two men were seen on camera stealing an ATM from a Petro Canada in Whitecourt, Alberta.
The footage shows one man jumping into the store through the broken door. He brings a tow strap with him and hooks it up to the store’s ATM.
When it is hooked to a vehicle outside, the men attempt to drive away with the ATM but it becomes stuck in the doorway. They are eventually able to lift the ATM through the doorway and leave the scene.
Megan Reutman, the manager of the gas station was notified about the break in by the security system, when she received a message on her cellphone.
According to CBC, Reutman called the police around 4 a.m. The police were unable to make it to the scene on time, and the theft cost Reutman and her family losses of about $25,000.
RCMP spokesperson, Fraser Logan said, “Attacks upon ATMs inside businesses, including the theft of these machines, continue to be an ongoing issue.”
According to the RCMP, there have been 51 attempts at stealing ATMs in 2019 from January to October. Some successful thefts and some unsuccessful. Police say this is about average for Alberta.
The president of the chamber of commerce in High Prairie, Barry Sharkawi noted, “Business people, they’re calling me, you know, saying ‘This is enough, we can’t take this anymore.’”
“They are upset,” He added, “Not just that they are scared about the break-and-enters, but they’re asking, ‘Who’s next?'”
Sharkawi posted another image of a Circle K that had similar damages on Nov. 21.
In a Facebook post, Sharkawi said, “Something has to happen regarding security of the town,” he added, “If this keeps happening, it will scare anybody to come and invest in High Prairie.”
Some business owners are unsure if owning an ATM is worth all of the trouble.
Reutman noted, “We haven’t replaced it. We’re still deciding if we want an ATM back in our store.” she added, “Things are not cheap.”
“[Replacing] the garbage cans, like, you just think it’s a garbage can, but because you have to get specific ones from Petro Canada, they’re $150 each.”
Sharkawi said, “We need to be saved, that’s all,”
Convicted Canadian pedophile, Peter Dalglish, is set to appeal his conviction. Dalglish will argue that he was a victim of a police conspiracy, according to The Canadian Press.
In particular, Dalglish will say that a “conspiracy” was created by those who forced children “to lie and damage the reputation of an innocent man.” As a result of this, Dalglish will be attacking the credibility of the rule of law and the justice system of Nepal.
Dalglish, who received the Order of Canada, was originally sentenced last June to nine years in jail. He is from London, Ontario, and has assembled a legal team to dispute the sentencing. Nepalese police have accused Dalglish of raping two boys, aged 11 and 14.
In his appeal statement, Dalglish also stated that “The police offered bribes and incentives to potential witnesses and their families in exchange for damaging information about the defendant. They threatened those who could not be bought.”
Dalglish established the charity called Street Kids International in 1980, and has also carried out work in Liberia and Afghanistan.
CBC’s The Fifth Estate aired a broadcast on antifa Sunday night, and at times the 30-minute episode read more as an advertisement for the extremist group than an investigative report.
“Right-wing hate is growing everywhere, including Canada. And it is being met with a movement desperate to stamp it out.” Fifth Estate host Gillian Findlay said, introducing antifa. The activists The Fifth Estate utilized for the episode were mostly anonymous.
No mention was made of the antifa assaults on CBC and Global News videographers, and the promises of violence against journalists from Canadian Antifa Black Bloc. And despite montages of politicians warning of the threat of far-right violence, The Fifth Estate also failed to note that both the FBI and Homeland Security in the United States have repeatedly warned of the violent threat posed by antifa.
At one point in the documentary, Findlay oversees the doxing of two alleged members of Quebecois nationalist group Atalante. Their names, photos, and places of employment are broadcasted in full by CBC, without redactions of any kind.
The documentary can be viewed here:
When asked about freedom of speech, one antifa member said, “We believe they are not entitled to say things that will threaten the rights and safety of other people.” And then went on to praise violence as a necessary component of their activity.
After Findlay challenged another antifa activist on doxing individuals who had not committed any crimes, he says “A neo-nazi project is by definition a violent program. The difference is that I don’t have a hateful project. My project is based on diversity and inclusion.”
The Fifth Estate’s episode emphasized white supremacist and right-wing violence as a growing concern and comes at a time when a wave of anti-Semitic attacks by Black Hebrew Israelites and affiliated actors is gripping many Jewish communities.
