The Daily Caller reports that Berkeley mayor Jesse Arreguin is a member of the far left group BAMN (‘By Any Means Necessary’):
Jesse Arreguin, mayor of Berkeley, California, has been revealed to be involved with a violent, far-left group known as “BAMN,” meaning “By Any Means Necessary.” (…) BAMN is not just any “liberal” or “leftist” group. It is a group whose members have engaged in violence, and is affiliated with the violent antifascist, or antifa, movement.
Berkeley has been the scene of several high-profile attacks by the far-left on right-wing protests and events in the past months alone. The police have shown a “hands-off” approach each time, and here we are seeing at least part of the reason why.
