  No, they aren't terrorists, but stop appeasing antifa The Obama Department of Homeland Security concluded that left-wing "antifa" forces were engaged in "domestic terrorist violence," according to documents obtained by Politico. Who am I to argue with the fine men and women of former President Obama's DHS? In fact, as someone who has been fighting with antifa defenders for a good while, I feel a bit like the defense lawyer in "Miracle on 34th Street" when the U.S. Post Office confirms that his client is actually Santa Claus: Hey, don't take my word for it; "terrorist violence" is the term chosen by professionals working for a Democratic White House.

Online video of a UCPD officer in Berkeley who ticketed a hot dog vendor outside a Cal football game Saturday, and seized from the man’ s wallet, has prompted an outpouring of support for the vendor and a backlash against the officer. UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof offered a brief statement

The University of California Berkeley Police were recently featured in a video that shows their officers serving local citizens by protecting them “That’ s not right man, that’ s not right,” Flores said as he used his phone to record a UC Berkeley police officer issuing a ticket to a hot dog vender

A video showing a UC Berkeley bicycle officer citing a bacon hot dog vendor on campus and removing cash from his wallet for operating without a permit has gone viral.

In the video, taken by alumnus Martin Flores on Saturday afternoon, a UCPD officer is seen pulling cash out of the vendor's wallet and folding it into his hand.

The vendor objects and stands by as the officer puts the money away and begins to write a citation.

Flores said that he was buying hot dogs from the vendor for his kids after Cal's game against Weber State when the officer interrupted them to cite the vendor.

The officer asked for the vendor's ID and as the man fumbled through his wallet, the officer took it out of the vendor's hand, Flores said.

"That's when I thought something was not right," Flores said. So he pulled out his phone and began to record.

In the first moments of the video, the officer is seen pulling bills from the man's wallet and folding them into his hand.

Flores repeatedly says, "That's not right," and asks the officer why he's taking the vendor's "hard earned money." Flores claims that people were drinking in public not that far away, and that officers should have targeted them instead.

"Yeah, well he doesn't have a permit. He doesn't have a permit," the officer responds. "Yep, this is law and order in action ... Thank you for your support."

In a phone interview Monday, Flores said he understood that the vendor needed a permit so the officer wasn't technically wrong in issuing a citation. It simply appeared the officer's enforcement was selective.

Berkeley braces for visit by right-wing speaker Ben Shapiro

  Berkeley braces for visit by right-wing speaker Ben Shapiro BERKELEY, Calif. - The University of California at Berkeley will seal off large parts of its campus like a fortress with a closed perimeter and a “very large” visible police presence Thursday, when the birthplace of America’s free speech movement faces its next potential clashes. City and campus authorities anticipate demonstrations at a speech by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, a former Breitbart editor, and are preparing for possible violence with a variety of new strategies and tightened security. BERKELEY, Calif.

"If he's really about law and order there's really so many other things he could've stopped," Flores said. "I totally recognize that people have to have permits. But this wasn't about that. This was about identifying one vendor. If you want law and order, be law and order across the board."

Police told KTVU-TV the vendor's money was seized as evidence.

Flores' video has been viewed more than 11.4 million times since it was posted Saturday onto his Facebook page. He said he felt disappointed as he posted the video online.

"That this happened on a campus where I was a student, where it's supposed to be known as a liberal campus, a socially conscious campus and that it was actually a campus police officer doing this? I was bothered," he said. "It broke my 10-year-old daughter's heart. She wanted to give [the vendor] a hug."

A petition to have the officer fired has received more than 11,000 signatures. Martin launched a GoFundMe effort for the vendor, identified only as Juan, with a $10,000 goal.

It had raised nearly $33,000 as of Monday morning.

Campus officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday, but did issue a brief statement to the Berkeleyside blog Sunday evening.

"We are aware of the incident," UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof told the website. "The officer was tasked with enforcing violations related to vending without a permit on campus. UCPD is looking into the matter."
