Obama Declares May 1st “Loyalty Day”, Celebrate Obedience to Government!
http://intellihub.com/ ^ | May 1, 2013 | JG Vibes

Posted on 05/01/2013 3:05:05 PM PDT by Whenifhow

Today is now officially “Loyalty Day”, where all of the tax slaves of the United States can celebrate their obedience to government. In recent memory Mayday is associated with workers protests and things of that nature, but it is important to remember that people in various culture have been celebrating Mayday for most of recorded history. Far before the middle ages, pagan cultures in Europe would celebrate mayday, and even they drew their traditions from older astrotheological cultures.

This point on our calender now means many different things to many different people, and now you can add another one to the list.

The following “proclamation” was made through the official White House website:

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

In the centuries since America broke from an empire and claimed independence, our people have come together again and again to meet the challenges of a changing world. We have reinvented our cities with advances in science and reformed our markets with new understanding of the forces that guide them. We have fought for freedom in the theater of war and expanded its reach during times of peace. We have revamped and recovered and remade ourselves anew, mindful that when times change, so must we. But with every step forward, we have reaffirmed our faith in the ideals that inspired our founding. We have held fast to the principles at our country’s core: service and citizenship; courage and the common good; liberty, equality, and justice for all.

This is our Nation’s heritage, and it is what we remember on Loyalty Day. It is an occasion that asks something of us as a people: to rediscover those ageless truths our Founders held to be self-evident, and to renew them in our own time. We look back to Americans who did the same, from generation to generation — citizens who strengthened our democracy, organizers who made it broader, service members who gave everything to protect it. These patriots and pioneers remind us that while our path to a more perfect Union is unending, with hope and hard work, we can move forward together.

Today, we rededicate ourselves to that enduring task. We do so knowing our journey is not complete until the promises of our founding documents are made real for every American, regardless of their station in life or the circumstances of their birth. Progress may come slow; the road may be long. But as loyal citizens of these United States, we have the power to set our country’s course. Let us mark this day by pressing on in the march toward lasting freedom and true equality, grateful for the precious rights and responsibilities entrusted to each of us by our forebears.

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, 2013, 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 thirtieth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

BARACK OBAMA

What are your thoughts on this recent “proclamation”? Is this just a simple propaganda campaign or is there something deeper at work? Does the occult significance of mayday have any relevance to the choosing of this specific date?

Either way, now there is another holiday where people in America can celebrate their obedience to authority.

In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups. In Germany, May Day coincides with Walpurgisnacht.[7] May Day has been an important official holiday in countries such as the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Cuba and the former Soviet Union. May Day celebrations typically feature elaborate popular and military parades in these countries[citation needed].

I have never heard of it. Perhaps I have, in the past, and just removed it from memory!

Been here since 2003. I'm sure it has been spoken about. My “power” to delete the irrelevant is VERY strong.

I see nothing wrong with loyalty to the Constitution, to the rule of law, to the concept of limited government, and to the freedoms that our ancestors fought to preserve. Of course Obama speaking up for that concept is like Bill Clinton endorsing fidelity or Michelle Obama endorsing a healthy diet, but I still agree with the sentiment. Now, if the druggie is referring to loyalty toward an out of control behemoth that systematically violates the Constitution, that’s an entirely different story.

Here there be tygers:

“mindful that when times change, so must we.”

“citizens who strengthened our democracy, organizers who made it broader, service members who gave everything to protect it.” (notice the precedence)

“made real for every American, regardless of their station in life or the circumstances of their birth.” (is this an autobiographical allusion [BHO coming out of the “birther” closet], or does he refer to amnesty -> citizenship?)

Does anyone trust anything this man says?

Ah well. You must not be able to read. No mention of God in this Loyalty proclamation. At the core of this country’s founding was a loyalty to God first. Without God, this country would not exist. No matter the atheists who would like it to not be so.

You chant and sing songs to the glorious BIG EARED one and eat bowls and bowls of gurrel and learn Spanish, basic DRONE maintenance and how to spy secretly on your fellow americans, there is a special evening session lead by moooooo -chelle oberrie, on how to HATE america while still receiving welfare and food stamp benefits.

Also, the special guest is gabby giffords ASTRONUAT(?) husband -who NOBODY ever heard of BEFORE his wife was shot—teaching a special session on how guns are bad—for you pee-on but NOT for him and the other elites.

SPOTS are filling up fast, so get on the list.

Øbama despises our American values, laws, traditions, and institutions.

If Øbama endorses and embraces it, this May Day “Løyalty Day” means fealty to sømething else entirely. The Øbama nation of des-Ø-lation is a fundamental transformation incompatible with and completely hostile to Western civilization in general and the American way of life and liberty specifically. But we knew that.

Daniel 3

1. Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was sixty cubits, and its breadth six cubits; he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon:

2. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counsellors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up:

3. Then the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counsellors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together to the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up:

4. Then a herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages:

5. That when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, you shall fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up:

6. And whoever does not fall and worship shall the same hour be thrown into the midst of a burning fiery furnace:

7. Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp and every kind of music, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up:

8. Therefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews...

That Saddam... what a piker.

"Loyalty" to what? Certainly not to America!

Predictably Obama is trying to make America celebrate his treasonist Commie holiday of May 1st - by using his customary Orwellian doublespeak of "Loyalty Day."

As other FReepers have pointed out, America created "Labor Day" and chose to celebrate it so as to distiquish it from the "May Day" celebrated by Communist, Socialist & Anarchist.

"The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation's trade unions for the past several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers' Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter {May date} would be associated with the nascent Communist, Syndicalist and Anarchist movements"

TYPICAL MAY 1ST CELEBRATIONS:

To: Johnny B.
From Wikipedia:
History

The holiday was first observed in 1921, during the First Red Scare.[2] It was originally called "Americanization Day,"[3] and it was intended to replace the May 1 ("May Day") celebration of the International Workers' Day,[citation needed] which commemorates the 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicago.

Loyalty Day is celebrated with parades and ceremonies in several U.S. communities, like Batavia, Illinois, although many people in the United States remain unaware of it.[citation needed] Although a legal holiday, it is not a federal holiday, and is not commonly observed.[citation needed]

During the second Red scare, it was made an official holiday by the U.S. Congress on July 18, 1958 (Public Law 85-529).[4][5] Following the passage of this law, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed May 1, 1959, the first official observance of Loyalty Day. [6] With the exception of Eisenhower in 1959 and 1960, Loyalty Day has been recognized with an official proclamation every year by every president since its inception as a legal holiday in 1958.[7] [8]

Statutory definition

Loyalty Day is defined as follows in 36 U.S.C. § 115:

(a) Designation.— May 1 is Loyalty Day.
(b) Purpose.— Loyalty Day is a special day for the reaffirmation of loyalty to the United States and for the recognition of the heritage of American freedom.
(c) Proclamation.— The President is requested to issue a proclamation—
(1) calling on United States Government officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on Loyalty Day; and
(2) inviting the people of the United States to observe Loyalty Day with appropriate ceremonies in schools and other suitable places. [edit]

‘Onion?’

That was my first thought. This almost has to be satire.

I would think that the only people who might benefit from a, ‘Loyalty Day’, would be those Americans who are not sure just where their allegiance lie.

Any true American doesn’t have to be told.

The idea goes back to 1921. The idea was to put something patriotic there to keep May Day from getting a foothold.
