May Day Mayhem on Its Way

Posted By Matthew Vadum On April 27, 2012 @ 12:57 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Occupy Wall Street supporters, labor activists, and other radicals calling for a general strike against capitalism across America on May 1 insist their activities will be peaceful.

As usual, they’re lying.

Protesters on May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, are going to commit “a lot of violent acts which they’re then going to blame police for,” former community organizer Brandon Darby, a leading expert on leftist tactics, told me in an exclusive interview.

As I revealed in my book Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, Darby has been a target ever since it was publicly revealed that the former left-wing anarchist saved the lives of innocent Americans by thwarting the planned fire-bombing of the 2008 Republican Convention by two anarchists.

Occupy Wall Street and the satellite protests it has spawned in cities across the U.S. and around the world have been spectacularly violent. Radical activists are responsible for hundreds of serious crimes, including murder, assault, gang rape, arson, rioting, and robbery.

The actions planned for May 1 are part of what left-wingers are calling the “99% Spring.” They are designed to disrupt the U.S. economy and ultimately to extinguish what remains of Americans’ cherished economic freedoms in the increasingly socialist Obama era. Leaders also hope to press lawmakers to promote the fraud known as “green energy” and to give those with student loan debts a massive $1 trillion bailout at the expense of taxpayers.

How do lefties “strike”? Do they refuse their food stamps and welafare checks?

I predict the usual crowd will show up. Unemployed, felons, pedophiles and rapists will all gather up and whine about not getting “their fair share”. A few celebrities will show up, so they can say that “they too, come from humble means”.

Meanwhile, the rest of us folk will continue working - knowing that the unemployment roles are going to continue to grow, that our taxes will continue to go up, and more of our hard-earned money will be removed from our wallets, and given to the bums in an attempt to “share the misery”.

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

- Winston Churchhill

If no other reason for some to consider the clothespin on the nose in November — spite Obama by a nod to the rich guy who was a business success without government holding his hand.

Blame the Po-Po, sounds like a great plan.

I'd like to blame them for putting a knot on their head!

Many veterans tomorrow will be quietly honoring their departed brothers and sister vets by placing American Flags on veterans graves in cemeteries across the U.S.

The leftists have ensured that the media do not publicize that tomorrow May 1st is LOYALTY DAY.

“Loyalty Day originally began as “Americanization Day” in 1921 to counter the Communists’ May 1 celebration of the Russian Revolution. Through a resolution adopted in 1949, May 1 evolved into Loyalty Day. Observances began in 1950 on April 28 and climaxed May 1 when more than five million people across the nation held rallies. In 1958, Congress enacted Public Law 529 proclaiming Loyalty Day a permanent fixture on the nation’s calendar.”

Fly the American Flag tomorrow.

How do I Show My Americanism on Loyalty Day?

By Paul Ramone, eHow Contributor

Loyalty Day is a holiday which is observed on May 1st in the United States as recognition of freedom and American heritage. If you want to show your loyalty like a true patriot, you can do so easily with a few adjustments to your wardrobe and attitude. You’ll quickly find that celebrating the freedoms of the USA never felt so good.

Instructions

1

Place an American flag pin on your chest over your clothing for the day. This move puts the “b” in subtle for sure. Not only will it portray your knowledge of this lesser known holiday, but also may prompt enlightening discussion on loyalty, patriotism and the liberties of freedom.
2

Participate in a Loyalty Day parade. Small towns across the United States celebrate this holiday with parades filled with children and veterans of war. Visit your local town hall to ask how to participate in one of these parades. If your town does not hold a parade, ask how you can make one happen.
3

Visit a local VFW (Veterans of Foreign War) post to make a donation or join in celebrating this often ignored, yet critically important holiday.

http://www.ehow.com/print/how_6871105_do-show-americanism-loyalty-day_.html

National Military Appreciation Month (May 2012) includes Loyalty Day (1st), Military Spouse Appreciation Day (11th), VE Day(8th), Armed Forces Day (19th), and Memorial Day (30th). This very important month honors, remembers, recognizes and appreciates all military personnel; those men and women who have served throughout our history and all who now serve in uniform and their families as well as those Americans who have given their lives in defense of our freedoms we all enjoy today.

Hah! You have a good point, unfortunately, a lot of the Union goons fall into the lefty category and they have enough power (albeit not very good workers, but a lot of them) to cause disruptions. Add to it the professional protestors to block roads, ports and rail lines, then we have a toxic brew that can shut a lot of stuff down.

Romney is simply a speed-bump in the road to euro-socialism. You may slow down the vehicle but it won’t be stopped or turned around.

I work on a base.
I’ve never heard of Loyalty day (this is sinerely the first time). There is nothing about this on our intranet, and this is not apparently an “Official” day, in the content as you expressed.

But, it seems that the word on Loyalty Day is not getting out, which I find curious. This seems to be a very regional observation; or else it would be widely dessimiated across the various branches of the military. Tomorrow is just another day at work, which is unexpected.

“I’ve never heard of Loyalty day (this is sinerely the first time). There is nothing about this on our intranet, and this is not apparently an “Official” day, in the content as you expressed.”

Because most likely you attended government schools where Americanism and Patriotism is no longer taught.

LOYALTY DAY

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—
o (1) calling on United States Government officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on Loyalty Day; and
o (2) inviting the people of the United States to observe Loyalty Day with appropriate ceremonies in schools and other suitable places.

Loyalty Day

When: Always on May 1st

Loyalty Day is an opportunity to express and reaffirm our loyalty to our country. In proclaiming this day, President George W. Bush wrote: “We express allegiance to our Nation and its founding ideals, we resolve to ensure that the blessings of liberty endure and extend for generations to come.”

On Loyalty Day, we reaffirm our allegiance to our country and resolve to uphold the vision of our Forefathers. We should also take a moment to appreciate the members of our armed forces who are displaying the ultimate in loyalty and service to protect our freedoms, and liberty, and our way of life.

Origin of Loyalty Day:

Loyalty Day was first celebrated in the 1920’s. Communisim was on the rise, and feared in America. At the time, May Day (May 1st) was percieved by some as a Communist holiday. In a sense, Loyalty Day was intended to counter this.

The U.S. Congress made ths an official holiday on July 18, 1958 with the signing of Public Law 85-529. Then President Dwight D. Eisenhower, proclaimed May 1, 1959 the first official observance of Loyalty Day.

The Chicago media is refusing to publish what the Chicago Police Officers have found. But here is an article on CPD preparation.

CHICAGO MAYOR’S OFFICE BUYS 8,513 MORE FACE SHIELDS FOR NATO SUMMIT

March 28, 2012 Leave a comment

BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter | Chicago SunTimes

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is buying 8,513 more face shields for Chicago Police officers at a cost of $757,657 — and demanding delivery in time for the May 20-21 NATO summit — to give every officer on the street a shield that fits over a gas mask and prevents them from being blinded by liquids thrown by protesters.

There is no way Romney could be expected to be that, but the big enchilada is hardly the only political influence in town. In the meantime it appears that choose your poison time is coming up in November.
