As Stiles lay bleeding on the ground from a serious head wound, researchers were already springing into action to determine the assailant.
Using the concept of crowdsourcing, /pol/, a sub-section message board hosted on 4Chan, settled on one individual as the criminal and Stiles as the victim.
Eric Clanton, a professor of philosophy at Diablo Valley College (DVC), is a known Antifa supporter who advocates anarchist tactics to his students. Ironically, he teaches courses on ethics and critical thinking, both of which he’s seemingly abandoned.
DVC is a two-year community college in Pleasant Valley, California. The school has confirmed that Clanton is a faculty member. While aware of the accusations, administrators aren’t issuing comment at this time.
He received his degree at San Francisco State University, which may explain a lot.
What is most amazing about the unmasking of Eric Clanton is the level of dedication and time spent by random Internet users to track down the criminal …”
/pol/ reportedly hacked into Clanton’s Amazon account and discovered he’d ordered 14 bike locks with one-day shipping. Apparently, he could have been intending to arm his fellow Antifa thugs.
Stiles has indicated that he will press assault charges against Clanton.
