May Day Rally Turns Violent In Seattle

 

 

 

 

” Police used “flash bangs” and pepper spray against some protesters who pelted them with rocks and bottles late Wednesday, as violence erupted during May Day in Seattle.

Several dozen protesters, many using bandanas to cover their faces, began clashing with police in downtown Seattle hours after a peaceful immigrant-rights march ended.

In the aftermath, 18 people were arrested, the Seattle Police Capt. Chris Fowler said.

Fowler said that eight officer were injured, mostly scrapes and bruises. One officer was hit by a rock on her knee.

The violence stemmed from a march that billed itself as an “anti-capitalism” protest. Initially, the protesters concentrated on a business sector of downtown Seattle.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  “But instead of peacefully assembling to present their dog’s breakfast of causes — from hating
capitalism, to amnesty for illegal aliens, to halting foreclosures — they descended into violence and criminality that can only mean
worse to come.
    Five anarchists were arrested in Cleveland by the FBI for trying to bomb a bridge. Authorities said
they had a wish list of other targets, including the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, the Justice Center of Cleveland and another bridge.
Two of the arrested — Brandon Baxter and Anthony Hayne — were named in past news reports as leaders of Occupy Cleveland.
   Around New York, 10 envelopes full of white powder imitating anthrax were mailed to seven
banks, to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office and to two media outlets, including Fox News. “This is a reminder that you are not in control,” the menacing notes read. “Happy May Day.” A
police spokesman told Reuters: “The messages indicated a link to today’s May Day demonstrations.”

Barack declares May Day to be ” Loyalty Day “ . Thanks Comrade . 

 

In order to recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation, the Congress, by Public Law 85-529 as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as “Loyalty Day.” On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2012, as Loyalty Day. This Loyalty Day, I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, whether by displaying the flag of the United States or pledging allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.

                                          

Since I will not click a link to the Whitehouse I’m not sure if Reason is pulling my leg or not but this is a very telling sign if true . 

On this first of May 2012 , also known as May Day or World Worker’s Day we explore the human cost of the regimes these protesters romanticize . From having it’s pagan origins as a Spring Festival and proceeding to become a campaign for a 8 hour work day this holiday has been seized  first by the labor unions  by the World Worker’s Party and now by the lovely people of the Occupy movement as their day of protest .

Behold some of their prized symbols ,

Seems to me , most people would love to be receiving a wage today . Enslavement to day takes the shape of government dependency .

.  Well , class warfare is certainly back in vogue with this administration .

But enough with the romanticized version .  Let’s get down to the cold hard facts of the “workers paradises” …

The cost of this grand century long experiment is well beyond 100,000,000 souls and still climbing .

Soviet Union : Range from 61 million to 120 million

People’s Republic of China : Range from 40 million to 70 million

People’s Republic of North Korea : Range from 1,600,000 to 3,000,000

Cambodia : Estimated 1,600,000

The Nazi’s : Estimated 20,000,000 *

   Yes the Nazis belong on this list . Contrary to the Leftist revisionists the party was the ” National Socialist ” party . This is by no means comprehensive but nevertheless serves to illustrate exactly how worthy of admiration are the regimes held up for evidence of ” worker’s paradises ” .

   I leave you with some links to more comprehensive studies on the deaths generated by the experiment of the ” Great socialism ” of the twentieth century , the bloodiest in human history thanks in large part to the socialist dream .

I leave you with this estimate of total deaths attributable to socialism/communism through the last century put for by . Zbigniew Brzezinski :Out of Control: Global Turmoil on the Eve of the Twenty-first Century (1993)

  • “Lives deliberately extinguished by politically motivated carnage”:
    • 167,000,000 to 175,000,000
    • Including:
      • War Dead: 87,500,000
        • Military war dead:
          • 33,500,000
        • Civilian war dead:
          • 54,000,000
      • Not-war Dead: 80,000,000
        • Communist oppression:
          • 60,000,000

Now lets us celebrate the wonders of the ” workers paradise ” . Behold the plentiful food ,

the fabulous living conditions ,

The many employment opportunities , in the security services of course

The world class medical care

The freedom to worship as one chooses

The freedom To speak one’s mind

The freedom to assemble

  All this and more are yours if you just close your mind , take hold of the government’s er, the left’s hand and march forward . This really is the “worker’s paradise” that wasn’t , yet an astonishing number of prominent leaders , students , teachers , celebrities and ill-informed people in the western world , despite voluminous evidence to the contrary , are of the opinion that if they were given the power that they would get it right and all would be rainbows and unicorns .

It would be laughable if one didn’t ponder the 100 million plus individuals who paid the ultimate price for this glorious experiment of the ” worker’s paradise ” .

Next up the  the brutal price of ” Glorious Socialism

  Here I sit , having posted briefly on the ” significance ” of World Worker’s Day , aka May Day , and I really missed the most important reason to highlight it . Through another earlier post I had become temporarily fixated on Presidential character as presented by their own words . Taking a break from quotation hunting , I ventured into my collection of reads and low and behold was shown the way . So today’s posts featuring the character of  some of our great leaders will suffer from a slight delay in favor of the more timely subject of the character of a form of government much admired by our friends across the aisle . Yes indeed , I refer to the great Socialist experiment that May Day has come to celebrate . 

   Through the wisdom of the Volokh Conspiracy I now recognize where the proper emphasis of today’s editorializing should lie . Stay Tuned  

It’s May Day isn’t it ? What better day for the Leftists to show their true colors ( do you hear that , Jews ?)

 ” The Left’s May Day terrorism campaign got underway a day early Monday as at least seven Wells Fargo bank branches in Manhattan reportedly began receiving suspicious envelopes containing white powder in the mail.”

 

                 

 

This is the true face of the world workers . Now I’m a worker but these people sure don’t represent my views . How about you ?
