Eric Clanton, the man believed to be the so called ‘bike lock professor’ has crawled out of the sewer with a statement condemning “hateful internet trolls” several months after he was arrested for allegedly attacking free speech advocates with a bicycle lock during the Berkeley riots of early 2017.
To release his statement, Clanton appears to have started a a shitty website to shill for himself and attempt to gather support.
There is only one post on the site, a long-winded self-pitying narrative detailing his experiences being doxxed by 4chan and then arrested by police. Naturally, the part about him allegedly bashing unsuspecting people with a deadly weapon is left out of the statement.
Here is an excerpt:
“My name is Eric. I’m currently facing years of prison time as the result of accusations made in the most shockingly hateful parts of the internet. On April 19th I began being targeted by a dedicated swarm of internet trolls known for spewing racism, xenophobia, and misogyny onto the web. Suddenly a hit piece by Milo Yiannopolis caused the targeting to go viral. Several old social media photos were posted, online accounts hacked, addresses published, hundreds of calls to my employers, and countless threats of physical violence made against me, my coworkers, friends and many others. This harassment campaign is where the accusations against me originated.”
This is very illustrative of the mindset if the left.
Even if you commit wanton acts of unprovoked violence, the resulting backlash is “harassment” and “targeting” by internet trolls.
Clanton the Crying Cuckboy continues to admit how he was thoroughly BTFO:
“All of this after my attorney Dan Siegel had reached out to Berkeley police on my behalf, and all on the basis of an ‘investigation’ that largely involved detectives reading far right forum posts and studying unverified YouTube videos. When I was interviewed at the police station detective Hong had the nerve to say to me, ‘the internet did the work for us.’ My case threatens to set a new standard in which right wing extremists can select targets for repression and have police enthusiastically and forcefully pursue them.”
If detectives reading ‘far-right forum posts’ is not the greatest example of weaponized autism being put to good use, I don’t know what is.
The internet did the work for us.
If convicted, Eric Clanton faces over 40 years in prison for his crimes.
Should he be found guilty, we can assume that due to the nature of his personality and crimes, Clanton will try to keep a vise-like grip on the soap when the Aryan Brotherhood is around.
