Conservatives are having a hard time with free speech on the campus of U.C. Berkeley. Now we find out the city’s mayor, Jesse Arreguin, is blaming Trump supporters for the hatred and violence that is occurring.
The mayor is a member of BAMN’s FaceBook page (BAMN – Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary), which might explain his refusal to protect conservative speakers. BAMN and ANTIFA are violent extreme “revolutionaries.”
If you want to know who is responsible for the hate and violence, look no further than this mayor. Trump supporters did not start the violence in Berkeley. Also, countless observers at the rally said the few police there had obviously been told to stand down and allow the violence to occur.
Here’s what you don’t get to do and that is blame Trump supporters for these psychotic anarchists’ actions. This mayor needs to be removed immediately as he is a hazard to the community.

From his fifth-floor suite of offices overlooking the park, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin had a first-hand view of the gathering of far right demonstrators.
He has struggled to come to terms with how to deal with the combatants who continue to use Berkeley as their stage.
“We’re a surrogate for the resistance against the Trump administration certainly, and for progressive values, ” he said.
“It’s not lost on me that I’m Berkeley’s first Latino mayor. I have been outspoken against the Trump administration,” he said. “I have to wonder if the mayor was white, would we see such hate.”

It’s pretty sad that Mayor Arreguin, the college and the police department, felt it was more important to restrict opposing views than it was to protect people’s safety and enforce the law.
He also has tried to grapple with the presence of extremist anti-fascist groups in his city.
Arreguin said conservatives, including Ann Coulter, have been able to parlay the clash between anti-fascist and nationalist demonstrators to their own advantage.
“It’s engineered intense animosity against Berkeley and that’s a narrative they keep putting out there,” he said.
The mayor’s personal nightmare, he said, is that eventually someone will get killed in one of the violent clashes.
This video below alleges the Berkeley Mayor had a secret meeting to stifle conservative voices. If this is true, he should be removed from office.
Police officers retreated and allowed for the attacks and damage to continue without any intervention. I guess to “protect and serve” is up for bid in Berkeley?
It’s time for a lawsuit. Hit this Mayor where it hurts and give them a taste of their own medicine. He helped to violate conservative free speech rights and potentially endangered the lives of our prominent speakers.
