Antifa Radical Charged with Hateful Vandalism Raises Over $80k Thanks to L.A. Times Article

Antifa Radical Charged with Hateful Vandalism Raises Over $80k Thanks to L.A. Times Article, by Debra Heine.

Ismael Chamu, 21, allegedly spray-painted people’s cars and fences with “F— White People,” “F— the police,” “F— frat Boys,” “Kill Cops,” “Kill Yuppies,” “Eat the Rich,” and “Class War,” Far Left Watch reported. He was arrested on June 27, 2017, while brandishing a knife “in the same location and on the same night that 30 instances of slashed tires and graffiti occurred.” …

Since his arrests last summer, the student radical has fallen on hard times, and the L.A. Times has decided to take up his cause.

The paper ran a heart-tugging piece titled “He attends elite UC Berkeley but lives in a trailer with no heat or sewer hookups. Soon, he’ll be scrambling to find new shelter.“

The Times article portrays Chamu as a victim of the system whose financial aid does not fully cover the cost of his housing. It features poignant black and white photographs of the activist’s struggle to survive.

The original version of the article, however, failed to mention his affiliation with Antifa and neglected to mention his two arrests last year. …

A YouCaring account for Chamu has now raised over $82,000, which he allegedly will use “to support his two sisters, younger brother, mom and dad.” The money raised “will be used to buy food, secure housing, and school supplies,” according to the post.

Lying by omission.
