OAKLAND -- A May Day protest heated up in downtown Oakland Tuesday afternoon as protesters repeatedly scuffled with police in riot gear, who responded with tear gas and orders to clear the streets.
As of mid-afternoon, at least five demonstrators had been arrested, and AC Transit announced detours for bus routes passing through downtown. Police declared an unlawful assembly on 14th Street, between Clay and Broadway, minutes later.
While some remained downtown, others headed to the East Oakland Fruitvale neighborhood for a rally and march on the BART station made infamous by the shooting death of Oscar Grant III by a BART police officer. With drummers and native Mexican dancers entertaining the protesters, the mood was festive as hundreds converged on the plaza. Various groups held signs promoting communism and socialism. There is also a contingent merging lawmakers to "save America's post offices."

Story made short: “Communist fruits attack BART Simpson”.
Oh the horror of it all!
Have they no shame?
Where is Mayor Kumqat Quan when you need her? Oh, you can’t her head out of her ass. Sorry.
Why do these dim-witted malcontents get any ink or airtime at all?
They’re a bunch of unemployable losers and nothing more.
The real “working people” aren’t leftists, communists, nutcases, and parasites. No stories about them - nothing to tell, unless you’re an illegal with 5 kids, no husband, and some rare disease.
The mainstream media has been waging a marxist propaganda war against hard working Americans of all types, and making them all into greedy One Percenters despite the fact that newspaper reporters and columnists make a shit load of money, more than I make, and probably, you make.
The media is the “1%”, the arrogant elitists, the effete snobs of culture, and mainly “white bread” pampered parasites of the 60’s.
