Tweets are funny things.

Especially when you can find them in a timeline that illustrates an exceptionally bad decision made by an elected official, like the Mayor of Berkeley, Jesse Arreguin.

First he tweeted this, at about 8:00 p.m. PST (before the sh*t really hit the fan at Berkeley):

So noble. So brave.

So stupid.

Not quite three hours later, he tweeted this:

HA! Ya’ think?

Ok, so he gets all big, bad and tough about hate speech basically dumping gasoline on a fire and THEN tweets out that violence and destruction is not the answer.


Little late there, mayor.


Oops oops.

Resistance or something.

Oops oops oops.

Would be HILARIOUS if people hadn’t actually been hurt and property destroyed. It’s like they don’t understand reality and they go with the rosey, rainbow-filled vision in their heads.

Careful, Jesse might find your tweet to be hate speech.
