May Day march escalates into chaos, confrontation, violence
KIRO TV ^ | 5/1/13 | Essex Porter

Police arrested more than a dozen people and used flash-bang grenades and pepper spray after apparent anarchists and May Day marchers converged in downtown Seattle, throwing pipes, fireworks and rocks, lighting flares and sparking confrontations with officers. Protesters met at Seattle Central Community College at the busy intersection of Broadway and Pine Street and then spilled into the street, blocking traffic.

Obviously, those horrible Tea Partiers still have a lot to learn about civility.

This happened in Seattle. In other words, business as usual.

Saw some of the news feed. I laughed because these socialists were decked out in NorthFace/Pategonia outerwear - IE - $100+ jackets.

I live in Seattle and the news kept coming on during Jeopardy with "Breaking News!". It pissed me off.

As if there WOULDN'T be violence. Where do anarchists and communists protest and it DOESN'T become violent?

The media continuously emphasizes how "peaceful" most of the protesters are. Except for "a few bad apples that give the rest a bad name".

Yeah, that seems to be the case I guess. "Peaceful" protesters always seem to carry hammers and pipes.

And we get the usual media blackout.

But if Tea Party rally is held, the media looks for the leftist plants and runs them 24/7

Fortunately here in the NYC area (northern NJ) we have something called “winter” that makes it an undesirable place for these types. For all of the liberalism here, it rarely develops into anything in the street; our libs are too fat, old, and inactive.

Why would anybody in America even recognize Mayday in the first place? It’s an obsolete communist holiday, the day the old Soviet Union used to parade their troops and rusty old nukes through the streets of Moscow. And this year it fell on a Wednesday, the middle of the week. Apparently not a single one of those losers has a job to go to.

I know what you mean. “Peaceful protests”, more of that Newspeak George Orwell warned about. And it’s just like in Vancouver when those “few bad apples” showed up to express their “disappointment” over the Bruins beating the Canucks for the Stanley Cup.

The “peaceful” protesters don’t seem to notice that the people traveling with them wer carrying large rocks and other weapons. They all knew what they were going to do before they got there and Professor Commie made sure that they were well versed in the arts of street warfare.

Hey, I was downtown during the WTO riots and it was a lot more fun than that. Kids these days.

Looks like finals week at Evergreen College. In short, business as usual.

To the clown guy in that picture—life’s a joke and you’re the punch line.
