The city of Berkeley, California also known as Berzerkely or the People’s Republic of Berkeley has decided that President Trump should be impeached. I am shocked. Who would have thought that Berzerkely would be against Trump?
The city, renowned for its reverence for free speech as only they defined it ever since the 60s, represents the Maoist view. Free speech, as they see it, is relative. Chairman Mao said “The press is free to print whatever I say it can”.
In that spirit Beserkeley claims the Trump administration is an apartheid regime. Further they assume that Russia provided Trump with foreign money to do something or other and say that Trump’s criticism of the press violates the constitution.
Off with his head they say. First the verdict and then the trial. Impeach – they cry. He’s guilty of something. Impeach him.

Berkeley Joins Other Bay Area Cities Calling For Trump’s Impeachment
March 30, 2017
BERKELEY (KPIX 5) – While the resistance to President Donald Trump has largely been private citizens across the Bay Area and country, municipalities are jumping into the fray.
On Tuesday night, the Berkeley City Council passed a five-page resolution calling for the president to be impeached.
“We were one of the first cities to standup against apartheid – that’s a movement that took off and spread and that’s very important,” Councilmember Sophie Hahn told KPIX 5.
Berkeley City Councilmember Kate Harrison co-sponsored the resolution.
“I think it’s going to send a powerful message. I think we have no choice but to do this,” Harrison said.
The home of the Free Speech Movement wasn’t the first city in the Bay Area to pass a resolution calling for the impeachment of Mr. Trump. The cities of Richmond and Alameda got there first.
“We want to make sure we are on the right side of history,” said Alameda Vice Mayor Malia Vella. “Everything we do should be concerned about upholding civil rights, we should be concerned about upholding the Constitution.”
All three cities are sending their resolutions calling for investigations and impeachment to Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland).
Howard Epstein from the San Francisco Republican Party calls the resolutions crazy.
“Since the election of President Trump, they’ve been acting like three year olds throwing temper tantrums,” Epstein said.
Back in Berkeley, Harrison said the calls for impeachment over Russia, foreign money and attacks on the press, are American values.
“This is not a matter of policy disagreement with taxes, how we approach healthcare, etcetera. This is about the very essence of our constitution,” Harrison said.
