Berkeley, CA - Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has been exposed as a member of an anti-fascist (anarchist) Facebook group after somebody did what nobody had bothered to do before; they looked at his Facebook profile.
After anarchists were repeatedly allowed to attack innocent people in multiple attacks in Berkeley throughout the past few months, most people were left wondering why the police stood back and allowed it to happen.
Patrol officers are pointing their fingers at administrators who have remained silent. Now, Mayor Jesse Arreguin's association with violent left-wing radicals has been uncovered, and may provide some answers to explain what has been going on in Berkeley.
Mayor Jesse Arreguin has been revealed to be a member of By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), on Facebook.
BAMN is the anarchist group who organized the violent attack at UC Berkeley in February.
The anarchist attack at UC Berkeley is one of the most embarrassing and degrading examples of police leadership in modern memory. The images of University of California Police Officers in full tactical gear doing absolutely nothing as a swarm of black-clad uniformly dressed, masked rioters, were attacking and injuring innocent people will forever darken the image of law enforcement officers everywhere.
The violence spread off of the campus, but Berkeley police failed to take action as well. Since then, there have been multiple violent clashes in Berkeley involving hundreds of people as BAMN members have attacked racist, alt-right, and pro-Trump people in Berkeley, and each time the police officers were ordered to stand down.
Breitbart reports that BAMN has previously been investigated by the FBI for engaging in terrorist activities.
Screenshots of the mayor's Facebook friend list also allegedly show that he is Facebook friends with the BAMN leader, Yvette Felarca.

Felarca was recorded assaulting people at a neo-Nazi rally in June (she was attacking the neo-Nazis,) which led to the neo-nazis fighting back, and seven people were stabbed between the two groups.
After the UC Berkeley riot, Felarca went on multiple news stations defending the violent attacks. She said that the left was too timid and said that their attack on UC Berkeley should be the model utilized by all left-wing activists to counter speech that they disagree with.
After her media interviews promoting acts of terrorism, she was briefly suspended from her job as a public middle school teacher with Berkeley Unified School District.
After an investigation the school district collected repayment for 25.17 hours of sick leave and admin leave, “claiming that employees could not use their personal leave days to attend political protests and claiming that Felarca had used them for this purpose,” according to Berkeleyside.
Despite all of this, Felarca was reinstated and remains employed as a public school teacher.
When Mayor Arreguin was elected in November, he said, “While we’re moving into dark days for our country, I think Berkeley can be a beacon." It seems that we're getting a pretty good glimpse at what his vision is.
Mayor Jesse Arreguin has not yet responded for a request to comment on his affiliation with BAMN.
