Posted on 03/23/2011 2:00:25 PM PDT by Nachum
In the wake of changes to government employee unions power in Wisconsin and elsewhere, The Communist Party USA is working in conjunction with national labor unions and other left wing political groups to organize protests in Madison, Wisconsin and across the nation on April 4th.
Scott Marshall, Vice Chair of The Communist Party USA said his organization is working with the likes of MoveOn.org, the SEIU, the AFL-CIO and others to make April 4th, the anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., a national day of action.
Support is beginning to grow, said Marshall in an online meeting earlier this month. A bunch of organizations already are hyping the idea of massive demonstrations on April 4th.
The Community Party in particular has benefited from the recent debate over Wisconsin government employee unions power to collectively bargain, using the opportunity to build their ranks.

Oh...how I’d love to spoil their little party. ;)
Here in Michigan the teachers are planning an illegal strike in May.
Isn’t May Day the usual commie love fest?
We hate the USA ping.
Its especially important for the teachers since a May strike means a 4 month vacation.
Stephen Lerner is one of the architects of this agitation campaign.
ON a personal note, having seen what the money center banks have done to the forcibly stake claims on future production of Americans while simultaneously stealing current wealth and supressing current interest rates on savers, it’s hard not to root for the militant left to successfully tear the whole place down.
I’d rather start from scratch then suffer under 70% nominal tax rates the rest of my life.
The SEIU and Claire Wolfe are in agreement here, think that one over.
What. They couldn’t wait until May Day? Wonder if the King family will come out against this hijacking... The commies just marched on March 19th, but hey, they’ll be there anytime, anywhere.
Someone with stones should accuse the left wing freaks of celebrating the death of MLK. They certainly aren’t celebrating anything MLK stood for while he was alive.
Hey, they can’t miss the 4/20 festivities! If they make it after that, too many liberals will forget to show up.
Where can I enlist?
Oh - nevermind. I’ll be WORKING that day.
Remember, April 4th was the day MLK was murdered. I always remember...CAUSe it’s my birthday.
DUH...just read it in the article! Missed it before...
“Money...cant exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them.” - Rand
We are losing the ability to produce goods. The socialists are trying to speed that process. We stop them or we are done as a nation of wealth. End of story.
Sounds a little like May Day in Moscow.
Obama must be pleased.
They should be scheduled to march April 1; so the rest of the fools can join them.
Excellent analysis and totally true today.
I just checked out your profile page. Yes, I did fear that you had misspelled “Dracula”. :)
Soon. Our time is coming. Theirs will be up.
Our response comes on Apr 15th... Tax Day Tea Party!
Yes I like it. Let’s call them what they are from now on.
We have a 2 party system here.
One of them is now known as the COMMUNIST PARTY and
we Americans don’t cotton to no Commies
The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.
The demonRATS are in league with union goons. And unionism is just another word for communism.
Yes it is and I hate to think that's all that stands between us and a communist takeover.
I took the moniker - Dacula, because I joined FR at the time the infamous Buckhead was breaking news. I also work in Buckhead and have a wonderful commute everyday.
:) I’ve heard that Buckhead is beautiful.
James Earl Ray was a DEMOCRAT who Worked for the Wallace presidential campaign in LA..when Wallace ran as a democrat...
Ray arrived in Los Angeles on November 19. While in L.A., Ray attended a local bartending school and took dance lessons. His chief interest, however, would be the George Wallace presidential campaign. Ray harbored a strong prejudice towards African Americans and was quickly drawn to Wallaces segregationist platform. He would spend much of his time in Los Angeles volunteering at the Wallace campaign headquarters in North Hollywood
Remind everyone you know.....I do...
MLK was murdered by a democrat.
Go for it! Nothing better for us than to see union idiots showing thier as$es.
Make sure you carry that day.
The 2nd amendment is your concealed carry permit.
It becomes very clear out of the mist comes the four horsemen of death to freedom and The Road To Serfdom with the rat party.
Unfortunately, I don’t think that the Republicans will stand between us and a communist takeover.
Good for them, fly those Communist flags and banners as high as you can for all to see!
They don’t call Madison the Moscow of the Midest for nothing!
Buckhead is beautiful if you love traffic. As far as the other guy, I could not tell you. :)
Isn’t the 4th of April a Monday? A work day? Oh, that’s right, these people don’t have jobs, they just have trust-funds and George Soros to life off of.
Well I haven’t given up yet. What’s the alternative?
You greedy, thieving taxpayers are going to get what’s coming too you!
May Day Born in the United States
The First International ceased to exist as an international organization in 1872, when its headquarters were removed from London to New York, although it was not officially disbanded till 1876. It was at the first congress of the reconstituted International, later known as the Second International, held at Paris in 1889, that May First was set aside as a day upon which the workers of the world, organized in their political parties and trade unions, were to fight for the important political demand: the 8-hour day. The Paris decision was influenced by a decision made at Chicago five years earlier by delegates of a young American labor organization the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada, later known under the abbreviated name, American Federation of Labor. At the Fourth Convention of this organization, October 7, 1884, the following resolution was passed:
Resolved by the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions the United States and Canada, that eight hours shall constitute legal day’s labor from May First, 1886, and that we recommend to labor organizations throughout their jurisdiction that they so direct their laws as to conform to this resolution by the time named.
Your thesis is misguided.
You actually think the COMMIES would work to reestablish the banking system with a more “just” system.
You have got to be kidding. Commies are after nothing but the power to keep their boot on the neck of the Workers.
“ON a personal note, having seen what the money center banks have done to the forcibly stake claims on future production of Americans while simultaneously stealing current wealth and supressing current interest rates on savers, its hard not to root for the militant left to successfully tear the whole place down.”
Your rant seems better suited to the Daily KOS, comrade. You may want to review the history of economic downturns. Banks have been at the center of blame for all downturns by individuals looking for scapegoats. Much of jew hatred was an outgrowth of banker’s envy with prominent Jewish bankers becoming scepagoats.
If there is a problem with the banking system, look at government as the culprit. Government has encouraged irresponsible lending behavior and then pushed through the bailout. I am certain that some financial institutions took advantage of the bailout but many others did not want any part of it.
The rats are tne enemy not bankers. Defeat the rats at the ballot box so that conservatives can unleash the power of private initiative.
The Highlander Folk School: A Photographic History
I work at a place where a majority of employees are in a Union. I have seen evidence of some union rep leaving piles of stickers and buttons behind over the last few days. They are just generic, with the union logo on them, from what I have seen.
