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
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 countrys core: service and citizenship; courage and the common good; liberty, equality, and justice for all.
This is our Nations 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 countrys 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.
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. 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.
Been here since 2003. I'm sure it has been spoken about. My “power” to delete the irrelevant is VERY strong.
The Democratic motto is “My Honor is My Loyalty”.
As long as loaded tanks and missiles are directed toward DC. Let’s call it not aimed, but nodding.
I actually followed the link to the WH. It’s not satire. Orwellian.
Its really Loyalty to Obama and the Democratic Progressives.
You realize, of course, that you are now on ‘the List.’
0bama can KMA
Remember when dissent was patriotic?
I prefer July 4th,thank you very much.
May Day commemorates the anarchist/terrorist bombing of the haymarket in Chicago.
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.
commies love “May Day”
It just makes them feel like they gotta party
Thanks to that spiffy new data center they just inaugurated in Utah, we’re all on the list.
