Shouldn’t Participating In Antifa Terrorism Get You Fired?

Corporations and institutions have made a point of speaking-out to condemn “hate” and in some cases make million-dollar-plus donations to dubious “anti-hate” organizations, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, to signal their opposition to racist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan.

But there seems to be no rush to make statements or signal virtue in opposition to the hate and violence of the Marxist – Anarchist Far Left terrorists of Antifa.

Pepper BallsFor example, GoDaddy, the webhosting giant closed the account of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer after the Charlottesville riot, and Google refused their business as well.

"We have informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service," said corporate comms rep Dan Race, according to reporting by Clare O’Connor of Forbes. "If no action is taken after 24 hours, we will cancel the service."

The Daily Stormer registered its domain with Google. But within hours, Google canceled that registration. "We are cancelling The Daily Stormer’s registration with Google Domains for violating our terms of service," Google said in a statement. Google also shut down the publication's YouTube channel.

"Given this latest article comes on the immediate heels of a violent act, we believe this type of article could incite additional violence, which violates our terms of service," Race said according to O’Connor’s reporting.

We’ve never seen The Daily Stormer, so we will take GoDaddy and Google at their word on its content, but if GoDaddy is opposed to inciting violence it should look to its own corporate offices as well.

Many CHQ readers will recognize 29-year-old Joshua Stuart Cobin of Scottsdale, who appeared in a viral internet video known as “Pepper Balls” after he was shot in the groin with a pepper ball as he led a violent clash with Phoenix, Arizona police during President Trump’s recent visit to Arizona.

The video of Corbin kicking a can of tear gas back at Phoenix police officers, then falling to the ground after police shot him with a pepper ball, went viral following Tuesday's protest against President Donald Trump's visit.

Corbin was arrested last Thursday, said Phoenix police Sgt. Jonathan Howard. He is currently employed by GoDaddy, as their sales and support representative, according to a report from

He is facing three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer and one count of unlawful assembly, Howard said.

"Many of you will recognize this man as he has posted images and admissions to his crime on social and local media outlets,'' Howard said in a statement released late Thursday.

In a Reddit Phoenix thread, a user by the name of gotyourqueen opened up as the "guy in the blue shorts who got shot in the crotch" on Wednesday. He wrote that he is not "antifa" — a reference to anti-fascist action groups — and does not support any violence toward police or Trump supporters, reported Ryan Santistevan on the AZ Central website.

Right, and peaceful protesters always show up with gas masks and get arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer.

Then there is the case of Ed Sheerin, a Philadelphia public school teacher who has been charged in connection with an altercation with police during a protest near the statue of Frank Rizzo, the city’s former mayor and police commissioner, outside the Municipal Services Building earlier this month, authorities said Saturday according to reporting by Daniel Greenfield for the Frontpage Magazine website.

John Edward Sheerin, 63, of the 6200 block of Hasbrook Avenue in the city’s Crescentville section, was arrested without incident Friday night and charged with terroristic threats and harassment for allegedly making verbal threats of violence to a Philadelphia police officer, police said.

Sheerin is a teacher at the Julia de Burgos School in North Philadelphia, according to School District payroll records reported by Greenfield.

Sheerin, described as “an aging white Leftist by Greenfield, appears in a video of the incident posted to Twitter, Sheerin can be heard approximately halfway through the recording berating an officer — calling him a “gutless bitch,” “f***ing coward” and “punk-ass motherf***er,” and telling him “you’re f***ing done.”

You can see the video for yourself – if you can stomach it – in the Twitter feed posted by Helen Ubiñas embedded in Greenfield’s article.

He also screams at the cop to “lose his f***in’ badge and gun” followed by what sounds like “I f***in’ carry.” He then bellows that he’ll give the cop his address so he can “knock on [his] door.”

And like father, like son.

In July, Sheerin’s son Christopher was one of three people arrested during a fracas between pro- and anti-Trump activists in the city. According to Philly Voice, reported by Greenfield, the younger Sheerin “was seen punching a Trump supporter in the face and pulling the American flag from him.”

Interestingly, Philadelphia schools conduct a “No Place for Hate” program, in collaboration with the Anti-Defamation League, that promotes positive behaviors and anti-bullying strategies.  Through school-wide projects, the students are supposed to learn how to be better citizens to each other and in their community.

The Philadelphia Schools employee handbook also requires that, “All School District employees should conduct themselves in a manner that promotes and supports the development of good character by teaching, enforcing, advocating, and modeling ethical principles.”

But so far it appears Sheerin has suffered no consequences for his assault on the police, likewise as far as we can tell Corbin remains employed by GoDaddy.

If virtue signaling corporations and institutions are truly opposed to “hate” and violence they should look to their own staff first, and terminate any employee caught assaulting the police or anyone else in the course of an Antifa or neo-Nazi riot.

We urge CHQ readers to contact Go Daddy CEO Blake J. Irving at (480) 505-8800 to demand the termination of Joshua Stuart Cobin and Philadelphia Schools Chief Executive Officer & Superintendent - William R. Hite, Jr., Ed.D. at (215) 400-4100 and Maritza Hernandez, Principal of the Julia de Burgos Elementary School at (215) 291-4065 to demand the termination of John Edward Sheerin.
